A couple of weeks ago, the ACLU of Tennessee sent out a warning to schools in the state. The ACLU, which believes it has dictatorial powers, warned local schools
against Christmas celebrations.
The ACLU letter warned that they should be referred to as “holiday” celebrations and not “Christmas.” The warning from the ACLU was not well received by many Tennesseans, who do believe the holiday celebrated in December is Christmas.
But then, what happened next can only be described as hysterical.
Tennessee has something called the Tennessee Fusion Center. The purpose of the center is to help state agencies pool data and analyze information about possible

Anyone has been on the receiving end of the ALCU’s jackbooted assaults on American freedoms, they might well agree with the assessment.
The ACLU, of course, immediately went nuts. To their executive director, the listing was “deeply disturbing.”

might want to kill an enemy combatant.
ACLU lawyers took photographs of what were believed to be undercover CIA operatives to Cuba to see if their clients could identify them and thus reveal their identities.
The ACLU sued over eavesdropping of foreign phone calls by the National Security Agency.
In short, the ACLU has done everything in its power to help damage American national security.
Officials with the Tennessee Fusion Center apologized for the “mistake.”

In ACLU speak, oversight means crippling our ability to protect ourselves and transparency means letting our enemies know all of our secrets.
Meanwhile, I think the Tennessee Fusion Center was absolutely on target, even if by accident with its labeling of the ACLU
