ACLU launches new "Offensive" organization
with the presentation
of a nationwide training video on "Protest and Resistance".
It’s time to call it like it is. We've all known that the ACLU is inhabited by folks of the extreem left - Liberal, Progressive or lets call them what they are: Communists. Until recently they had been the "Defence" of "our civil liberties". Now they are playing "Offense" through a new internal organization called PeoplePower.org (who ran the nationwide training event), and teaming up with others of similar ideology like Obama’s “Indivisible Project” plus OFA** all coming together. This sounds like a "perfect storm" that many wont be able to take sitting down. Why now you ay ask - this all comes at a time when our new government is undergoing change of watch during a constant bombardment from the LEFT. And dont forget about all those critically placed Obama leftovers. It's all been spelled out most recently in 1963 See Communist Goals as submitted to congress. See Nos. 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 22, 24, 26 etc.
Below is the ACLU’s latest chapter.
The American Civil Liberties Union staged a nationwide training event to make sure people are aware of their rights as protesters and urge organized, public resistance by those specifically opposed to policies of President Donald Trump.
Organizers said the event at a sports arena on the University of Miami campus was live-streamed to locations in all 50 states. ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero said 200,000 people had signed up to attend one of an estimated 2,000 local events.
The town hall style event was staged in, and was aimed at capitalizing on numerous demonstrations since Trump's election in November and to make sure people know their rights to protest, Romero said. He said priority issues are immigration, the First Amendment free speech and religious freedom rights, civil and reproductive rights and rights of gay, lesbian and transgender people.
"We will bring all the lawsuits necessary to defend these rights," Romero said. "We'll do the work in the courts. You do the work in the streets. People are motivated. They want to be engaged."
The ACLU also launched a new grassroots online organizing platform called PeoplePower.org. It's billed as a way for people considering a local protest or rally to connect and coordinate with others around the country with similar intentions, and to provide details of ACLU initiatives.
Another plan is creation of "freedom cities" around the country that would encourage local officials to pass laws resisting Trump policies such as stepped-up deportations of people living in the country illegally, said Faiz Shakir, ACLU national political director.
Other parts of the ACLU's event detailed the rules for demonstrations on streets, sidewalks and in public parks, and the rights people have when arrested such as the right to remain silent. ACLU attorney Lee Rowland said large demonstrations generally require a local permit, but government can't typically shut down protesters in public places without good reason.
"The government can't censor you just because it disagrees with your opinion," Rowland said.
Lastly, we think it not a coincidence the choice of Logo the ACLU will be using for this endeavor.

**Organizing for Action (OFA)
If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America.
The ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues, and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's top dogs over to an organization called Organizing for Action (OFA).
OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for progressive change. Issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform. OFA members were propped up by the ex-"president's" message from the shadows: "Organizing is the building block of everything great we've accomplished. Organizers around the country are organizing in their communities and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2016 and beyond."
The OFA website says it obtained its "digital" assets from the ex-president's re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short it's the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic.
Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says OFA is an army of agitators 30,000 strong who will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president "will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House." Sperry writes that the ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the incoming administration through a network of leftist nonprofits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (currently more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. OFA’s IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate OFA has 32,525 volunteers nationwide. Obama and Michelle will oversee the operation from their foundation office near the White House.
Think about how this works. Trump issues an immigration executive order; OFA signals for protests and statements from Islamic and pro-immigrant leftist groups; ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action; the twittersphere lights up with revolutionary social media; violence ala University of California follows. All of this emanates from the ex-president's signal that he is heartened by the protests. Sad times are ahead.
