When exactly did the ALCU go to shit? Or was it a slow accumulation of retarded idiots fresh out of the indoctrination centers that are universities?

When these organizations run past their original intent they don’t fade away, they pivot. The ACLU was created to allow for free speech, particularly the war speech censoring during WW1 created by none other than Woodrow Wilson. Of course if you read Wikipedia they blame conservatives, but don’t actually mention the Sedition Act because that was all Dem baby. So over time the ACLU pivoted from free speech to civil rights. Of course, by the 1960’s the group was overrun by Marxists fresh out of indoctrination and well, the rest was inevitable.

u/Ahaus667 is right in part, but it's important Woodrow Wilson was also a Progressive, and as such the ACLU has always been a Leftist at it's core.

The only reason it supported Free Speech is because Communists were being censored. As Leftists are more in control of cultural institutions, limiting speech in order to stifle dissent against Leftism is completely acceptable.

The John Birch Society has a video where they go over "Communist Techniques" and they brought up how high ranking members of the ACLU had actually created fake propaganda material, associated it with JBS, disseminated it, denounced it, and used that as justification to have political action taken against JBS. I think another member called up random people in the area who had expressed interest in JBS, and started ranting about "niggers and jews" while pretending to be members, in order to dissuade people from being affiliating with the organization. This was in the 50's and 60's.

I wouldn't say there were as bad as the National Lawyer's Guild (which have basically given legal cover to Leftist Terrorism for decades), but they're not anywhere near as clean or good as they want people to think.

Came to a head a few years back. The ACLU decided to defend nazis right to protest, which a municipality was attempting to block. The ACLU succeeded, then lost most of its funding as donors pulled out. It immediately became left-wing propagandists after that, such as producing videos attempting to prevent Kavanaugh's right to be considered innocent until proven guilty. There are people form the old stock who have been interviewed since, saying it's nothing like it was.

The ACLU is a legitimate propaganda wing of the DNC.

They’re just a generic leftist activist group at this point, and care nothing about civil liberties these days. Same thing with the EFF, they’re just another left wing activist group and don’t actually care about privacy or free speech online.

The EFF created HTTPS Everywhere and Privacy Badger. I don't know what they're doing wrong, but they are doing some things right.

They also applauded Trump’s ban from social media.

I assume their Free Speech tweet was in criticizing the concept.
