I noticed a piece where the A.C.L.U. is taking suit with the The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority , with high-profile plaintiffs including Right-wing author and provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos, author of ‘Dangerous’. The claim is that when the Washington Metro accepted adverts for Milo’s book, they were pressured by, allegedly, passengers who took exception to the very fact that Milo was asking people to buy his book. He wasn’t telling people that they should adopt any of the sexual preferences which he has written about. He wasn’t stating that people should go against their consciences, he was, simply, advising them that there was a book on offer, and that he was open to business.
The plaintiffs within this suit are strange bedfellows, by any stretch of imagination; P.E.T.A. (Animal rights, Vegan), Carafem (Abortion pills), Milo (homosexual rights, Right-wing and outrageously so, verging close to paeadophilic approbation); and of course the A.C.L.U. itself.
Some might remember, as I did, a post way back in early 2008 on a blogsite I visited; which was a scorching denunciation of homosexual activities in public toilets: and some might also remember my firm statements that the A.C.L.U., despite its taking up of many ultra-liberal causes, was probably the best thing to come down the American highway, because of its neutrality. What greater affirmation can there be, that the A.C.L.U. is the best; because it stands up for everybody?
p.s., I wish we had something like the ACLU in Britain, so that we could stop petty dictators like Mayor Sadiq Khan who stopped all ‘inappropriate‘ adverts on London Underground.
