People really don’t care about facts or truth. Several years ago, in response to some friends bad mouthing the ACLU, I provided a 2-year list of cases the ACLU had taken. I contended that the basis for all the cases had nothing to do with liberalism or conservatism, they concerned the fair application of law and/or Constitutional protections. We went through a number of the cases and they agreed in almost every instance that a wrong was committed. Very next day one of them was badmouthing the ACLU as a left-wing liberal organization that should be quieted. There is rarely a day goes by that I don’t see a similar example of this refusal to accept the truth.
