Robert H. Knight, MA Biography

Title:
Senior Fellow at the American Civil Rights Union
Position:
Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
Reasoning:

“The ACLU is a bully. Parents all over this country have experienced the wrath of the ACLU every time they try to rise and protect their children from exposure to hard core pornography; from explicit, graphic portrayals of sex in the classroom; to drug needle giveaways in which the ACLU would like to fund… The ACLU ought to be ashamed of itself for facilitating someone’s destruction. The ACLU has done that in many areas.”
