The ACLU Has Backed Away From Defending Free Speech

The ACLU has been backing away from free speech in areas where it could impact marginalized communities. A memo was recently leaked showing that not only will they take “special consideration” when dealing with certain speech but they won’t support being armed at a rally either.

It would seem that based on the rhetoric the ACLU is pushing far left talking points and actually stating they must consider whether defending absolute free speech is worth it. They claim to defend the constitution but would back away from the first amendment and the second amendment.

What happened and why is the ACLU backing away from free speech?
