The ACLU demonstrates its bias by what cases they choose to defend, as
well as those they choose NOT to defend. They refuse, for instance, to
be involved in the defense of Dr. Timothy Emerson, a formerly law
abiding, productive member of the community. They instead submitted
amicus curae briefs to both the District and Appeals courts AGAINST
Emerson. They wish to help ensure that the discredited 'community
rights' interpretation remains that used by government. Socialism needs
to disarm the population to succeed.

They choose to defend the most eggregious, most offensive, most
ludicrous cases of free speech: Nazis, Klansmen, Skinheads, while not
lifting a finger to defend moderately conservative or libertarian
students at liberal arts colleges and universities against the left-wing
political witchhunts and everyday bigotry that pervade campus life
today. The purpose of this bias is to help sow disrespect for civil
rights in the general population. If the average law abiding citizen
sees civil rights as only protecting what they view as 'freaks', or
fringe members of society, and not themselves, then they are far more
predisposed to support the establishment of the sort of police state
repressions needed to launch a socialist revolution.
