    In my lifetime, anti-ACLU verbal swords were deployed by the Nixon / Spiro Agnew camp, and anyone else who did their utmost to discredit and prosecute hippies and war protesters.  Think "Archie Bunker."  

    The camp hated the "decadence" of the 1960s and  would have liked more police control to suppress protests and the emerging cultural war against the Establishment.  

    We've come a long way, baby.   But the anti-ACLU fervor persists, and I suppose will do so as long as the Establishment strives to maintain its power.
