I give money every month and will continue to do so. Here's the whole document.

    The

    guidelines do not seek to resolve the conflicts, because resolution will virtually always turn on factors

    specific to each case. Nor do they change ACLU policy, which is set by the Board. Rather,

    consistent with Board policy, they attempt to identify the kinds of questions that ought to be

    considered, the processes for their consideration, and the measures that can help mitigate the harms

    to competing interests.

Wendy Kaminer was kicked out of the ACLU about ten years ago and is still salty. Her sole income at this point is railing against the ACLU for various conservative groups.

Back when the ACLU was defending the KKK, nobody else was. Now? now the president is saying there are bad people on all sides. Nothing in this memo says that people aren't allowed free speech - it says that some people are more convenient to give free legal representation to.

I'm 100% cool with that.
