ACLU Called Hypocrites Over Free Speech

Listen to Podcast

New York - The American Civil Liberties Union has proposed new standards that would discourage its board members from publicly criticizing the organization's policies and internal administration, according to Fox News Channel.

"Where an individual director disagrees with a board position on matters of civil liberties policy, the director should refrain from publicly highlighting the fact of such disagreement," the committee that compiled the standards wrote in its proposals.

"Directors should remember that there is always a material prospect that public airing of the disagreement will affect the ACLU adversely in terms of public support and fund-raising," the proposals state.

Given the organization's longtime commitment to defending what they call free speech, many people were shocked by the proposals, according to Fox News.

"This is just one more example of the left-wing group's hypocrisy. They use the first Amendment to lord it over Americans, but when it comes to criticizing their own organization, some members want to stifle free speech," says political analyst Mike Baker.

"The ACLU defends the most vile, vulgar and treasonous language, but when it comes to their own organization they try to stifle freedom to criticize the ACLU. How hypocritical is that?"
