ACLU Statement on Defending Free Speech of Unpopular Organizations (8/31/2000)


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW YORK-- ... In representing NAMBLA today, our Massachusetts affiliate does not advocate sexual relationships between adults and children.

What the ACLU does advocate is robust freedom of speech for everyone. The lawsuit involved here, were it to succeed, would strike at the heart of freedom of speech. The case is based on a shocking murder. But the lawsuit says the crime is the responsibility not of those who committed the murder, but of someone who posted vile material on the Internet. The principle is as simple as it is central to true freedom of speech: those who do wrong are responsible for what they do; those who speak about it are not.

It is easy to defend freedom of speech when the message is something many people find at least reasonable. But the defense of freedom of speech is most critical when the message is one most people find repulsive. That was true when the Nazis marched in Skokie. It remains true today.

I'm not generally a big fan of the ACLU, but in this case, I have to agree. There are too many people who refuse to accept responsibility for their own actions. Blaming what someone put up on the internet for your actions is about as stupid as you can get.
