Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
"Given limited energy and resources, maybe [the ACLU] defending the rights of violent bigots isn't the noble choice in every case - especially when those bigots predictably use their platform to silence others. Free speech absolutists [such as the ACLU] insist that free speech is the foundation of anti-fascism. But maybe anti-fascism is the basis of true free speech - in which case, defending the speech of bigots can, at least in some cases, leave us all less free."
