Holy shit! Talk about forgetting the past.

Not to worry, the ACLU will again side on the side of the assholes.

Skokie: The legacy of the would-be Nazi march in a town of Holocaust survivors

  1. I actually agree with the original march support.

    IIRC, the baddies didn’t go through with their march. (I have a vague memory of a Leonard Nimoy movie about that event.)

    However, this $hit, with the masks and flags and threats, does not seem to be in the “peaceful protest” category like the original.

    Just my $0.02.

    1. You’ve got a good point there. At one time, the ACLU actually stood for civil rights, at least some of them. (They have never supported the 2nd Amendment, but they did, decades ago, support the 1st). Nowadays, the ACLU is merely another left wing lawfare shop.

      1. @gpkonig: ” Nowadays, the ACLU is merely another left wing lawfare shop.”

        Like the ADL, the SPLC, the media have “lost their way and original mission(s)”.

    2. What Rick said. As abhorrent as I find Nazis, neo- or otherwise, everyone has the right to peacefully march and say their piece, no matter how disgusting or bigoted. The ACLU was on the right side of history back then (mostly; they’ve never been on board with the 2nd Amendment).
      But this is not 1978, and the context is not limited to one side wanting to march and the other side not wanting to let them. Now you have opposing views and one side clearly willing to engage in violence to silence the other. Once upon a time, the ACLU would defend both sides’ rights to march and speak in public, while condemning violence on either side.
      Now, though, the ACLU is a Leftist organization and will defend only those groups and civil rights that are “politically most correct”. Here, you have competing groups representing “historically oppressed” people. On top of that, Jews have been thrown in the mix…
      … and once Jews are in the mix, all bets are off; Jews never win the “politically most correct” contest.
      I predict the ACLU is more likely to defend the rights of pro-Palestine groups to violently attack pro-Israel groups, than it is to defend the rights of pro-Israel groups to speak in public. Or they’ll just sit this one out and not say anything … which speaks volumes in itself.

      1. @Archer: “I predict the ACLU is more likely to defend the rights of pro-Palestine groups…”

        Sadly quite likely.

  2. Are permits required for such events in Illinois? If so, who approved changing the venue to such an obviously inflammatory (if not outright hypergolic) location?

  3. What makes these people nazis ? Just their hatred of Jews and Israel? That’s like calling the Muslims in Britain ‘American Patriots’ just because they want to practice their own religion and have freedom from the British Government.

    1. The German Nazi party had a number of goals, such as government control of the economy. But their unique characteristic was the goal to kill all Jews. Given that characteristic, it is eminently reasonable to call other organizations that have the same goal, such as the various “palestinian” terrorist groups, Nazi. They may not be German and they may not share the entire platform, but they do share the most significant goal.

      1. “But [Nazi’s] unique characteristic was the goal to kill all Jews”. Except it really doesn’t seem that way. The Final Solution only seems to have come about after looking at various other possible solutions among them deportation to Madagascar or even Palestine, options which were rather impractical under the War. The goal with regard to the Jews rather seems to be their removal from Germany or perhaps Europe, which is not a remarkable project if you look at the last 2000 years of European history.

    2. @Ribeye: “What makes these people nazis ? Just their hatred of Jews and Israel?”

      Consider it shorthand. They appear as determined to eliminate Jews from the planet as Adolf and his buddies.

      “Muslims in Britain…have freedom from the British Government.”

      Um, not exactly comparable.

      The colonists wanted to be left alone. They did not want the British government to adopt their practices like the Muslims in Britain want Sharia enforced there.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
