ACLU board member calls for Trump supporters to be shot 'before election day'
The American Civil Liberties Union has descended to the level of self-parody. Of course, the civil liberty guaranteed by the Second Amendment has never existed in its view, but in the past it occasionally defended free speech for people with whom its liberal membership disagreed.
Rarely have its officials called for murderous totalitarianism (although, in fairness, the organization was originally founded to defend the rights of American communists who supported the murderous totalitarianism of Joseph Stalin). Actual political murder of opponents in America was never advocated by its officials. Until now.
Derek Hunter of the Daily Caller reports:
Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, called for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman.
Comparing Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, Wirbel wrote in his Facebook page:
The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, “This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before election day.” They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force, as Laurie would say.
Wirbel is also not much of a defender of free speech:
A felony for political speech!
The ACLU has lost all credibility by tolerating this man’s presence as an official.
