    Equality, social justice, diversity, tolerance, liberty. Perhaps Inigo Montoya was right.

    It's just an internal memo.
    Not the organization's official position.

    Remember when an ATF official mused about deregulating silencers and short barreled long guns in a "white paper" a year or two ago?
    Did ATF adopt those suggestions?


    The ACLU's last actual ACTION involving right-wing speech was to file a "Friend of the Court" brief in support of the Westboro Baptist clan to be immune from any civil suit over hurt feelings when they chant "God Hates Fags" or "Thank God For Dead Soldiers" (because in their warped view, any nation whose laws and culture tolerate homosexuality is a nation to be hated and cursed, and every tragedy that befalls it (e.g. citizens being killed by terrorists) is praiseworthy.)

    ACLU took the bible-thumping bigots' side, and helped them win at SCOTUS.

    "Gaffe" : When a politically visible person or organization accidentally tells the truth.
    Of course, this is no more important than the FBI agent texting about stopping Trump. Doesn't mean they injected their bias into the investigations. Nothing to see here. Move along.
