Carson Holloway, PhD Biography

Title:
Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Nebraska at Omaha
Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“The ACLU is trying to deprive other organizations of freedoms that it would insist upon for itself. Their work is not a defense of equality—it is an effort to impose a certain view of morality on the country by law…
This organization, despite its name and origins, is now committed to a version of civil rights that cannot help but erode traditional American civil liberties.

The motto of the ACLU is, ‘Because Freedom Can’t Defend Itself.’ The irony today is that freedom needs to be defended from the ACLU.”
