The Widder Curry Weighs In
An interesting question appeared today on the Point Loma Democrats website in regards to an article announcing the 80 year celebration of the San Diego ACLU.
To say that I was nonplussed to read the question which can as a comment to the article, would be a minor revelation. At the risk of being censored – do you think that Democrats would do that to their own? – let me tell you something about it.
On June 7th, there will be a 80 year celebration of the San Diego ACLU. As the article read, this function is not a
“ . . . stodgy, cardboard chicken dinner they’re celebrating in style, with a no-program cocktail party at Vin de Syrah in the Gaslamp. Enjoy mingling and toasting fellow civil liberties and civil rights aficionados, meet new friends, and reconnect with long-lost colleagues.”
There was room for comments re: this fest and I could not believe what I read :
“ I find a request to support the ACLU by a Democratic Club offensive.”
“Yes, the organization does some good but until they stop trying to remove the Mount Soledad War Memorial Cross, I will consider them a subversive organization. Their actions show they have no respect for the service of our country’s military members, including those who died for our country.”
The ACLU a subversive organization? Because they want to remove the Mount Soledad War Memorial Cross? As I wrote in my response, “you gotta be kidding.” Subversive?
I never thought of myself as being subversive. I never thought of myself as being religious, either. But I am of the Jewish persuasion and I strongly object to my spouse – or any of my loved ones – being “honored” in the shadow of a Christian object. It points out to me that anti-Semitism still runs rampant in San Diego. My husband was in WWII; he fought along side Christians, Buddhists, agnostics, atheists etc. So why is only one religious symbol displayed?
I realize this has been a long pending discussion. But to call the ACLU subversive on this issue only makes my blood boil. Democrats – there are anti-Semites among us.
