ACLU — No Longer a Trusted Advocate for Everyone’s Civil Rights

I just read an article about the ACLU’s opposition to Amazon selling facial recognition technology to law enforcement agencies. It was the ACLU, so I rolled my eyes. Not surprising. Then I remembered there was a time when I seriously considered the ACLU’s position on these issues because of their reputation as an unswerving defender of constitutional rights—for all. Sadly, now when I see the organization either supporting or opposing an issue, I dismiss it as just one of many unimportant opinions from leftwing groups engaged in the resistance.
