Let me begin by admitting that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is not an organisation I know very much about but on the occasions when it has been mentioned as part of some ongoing story, I have admired its efforts.
But that was yesterday!
Today I read, via Zero Hedge, the words of Mr. Alan Dershowitz who is about as near to icon-status in my world-view as any mere man will ever get! He is the 'bringer of truly depressing news' because according to him the ACLU has prostituted itself to 'Mega Money'. Even worse, it is 'Mega Money' from the worst sort of ultra Left-wing, 'zillionaire zealots' to be found mainly in Hollywood, and Silicon Valley. From being, hitherto, an impoverished organisation fighting lonely causes on behalf of fairness and justice, it has now become a 'yuuuuuuuuugely' rich pad for fat cat lawyers who do the bidding of their wealthy sponsors. For example, in pursuing the Kavanaugh case with absolutely no pretence of following fundamental principles of justice.
Read his words - and weep!
