ACLU launches new blog

Blog of Rights: Because Freedom Can't Blog Itself

I recommend adding it to your bookmarks.

ACLU executive director Anthony Romero explains the new blog here

We envision this blog as a marketplace of ideas and discourse on pressing civil liberties issues, from surveillance and extraordinary rendition to religious freedom and the rights of protestors.


People who know the importance of defending the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, like the more than 500,000 card-carrying members of the ACLU, don’t just live on the coasts in cities like San Francisco and New York. They are spread all over America, from the Midwest to the Southeast. This blog is a place where everyone concerned about civil liberties can come together.

Whether you’re in San Diego or Salt Lake City, and whether or not you carry an ACLU membership card in your wallet, we hope you’ll be a regular visitor to Blog
of Rights. Please join us in keeping civil liberties at the forefront of public dialogue.

And speaking of the ACLU and civil liberty ... I should finally have my review of Bill of Wrongs, which I received courtesy of the ACLU, up sometime next week.

It will be interesting to see how much hostile visitation the ACLU's blog will get. I am always amazed at how much hatred is aimed their way from the right.

It is beyond demented how much the ACLU is demonized.
