Your first link, 'the discover network' is some kind of wacko right site, and not worth the time of serious discussion. Most of it's assertions look like exaggerations and distortations. The claims the ACLU "organized rallies" sounds stupid, I have never heard of the ACLU ever doing anything of the sort, and I also get the impression your website would describe a few democrats gathering for lunch as a "communist rally"
The other case, of the protestors at the soldier's funeral, has little to do with the assertion the ACLU is defending foreign nationals in US court. But it is actually an excellent example of what the ACLU does. The protestors claim they have a religious view that America is being punished by God. They have a right to both express their religious views, and their free speech activities are also protected by the Bill of Rights. The State claims it can keep this group from excercising those rights. An excellent case for the court to decide.
Your other assertations, standard rightwing claptrap that the ACLU is "communist", man give me a fucking break. You don't like what they do, feel free to go to court and give your money to the lawyers on the opposite side. If the ACLU is "communist", so is every judge and jury who decided a case in their favor. You claim some sort of power they have simply by filing suit. Are they judge and jury? Are they the fucking Congress? Why do they win all the time? And WTF is "legal terror"? Are you advocating closing off the judicial system to certain people? Why don't we close it off to you?
BTW- did you check under your bed for commies?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
