Debbie Schlussel, JD Biography

Political Commentator
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"

“[T]he radical, minority ACLU is picking which type of speech will really be free for America. That deviant, offensive speech, like flag burning, nude dancing, and instructions on how to build bombs, will be free; But moral, laudable speech, like voluntary prayer, will not. Remember that form of free speech known as silence? It’s time for the ACLU to exercise it.”
