The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is probably one of the most liberal-progressive organizations out there. If you’re not savvy to their ways, research them; it won’t be a waste of time. Now, in a stance against Trump’s inauguration they’re vowing to protect the Constitution… well at least what they believe is the Constitution.
Their latest ploy involves promoting a “people’s oath” to protect the Constitution. The catch? They want uphold what they think the Constitution says.
According to the ACLU’s website and promotional videos, they want to ensure the Constitution is protected. However, their highlighted issues include healthcare, birth control and immigrants’ rights – which aren’t officially enumerated within the document. Notably absent from their petition was the call to protect the right to bear and keep arms.
