Re: Rob Sanchez's Column: H1-B Bodyshop vs. U.S. First Amendment: The Case Of "Tunnel Rat"

Sanchez's report on how the civil liberties of the "Tunnel Rat" might be infringed raises interesting questions such as "Where is the ACLU?" and "Where is the SPLC"?

Both of those bodies serve no purpose other than to promote and advance the cause of civil liberties. At least that's what they say when they're looking for money! 

"Tunnel Rat" is an American whose rights appear to have been violated in a particularly savage and arbitrary manner. Has anyone from the ACLU or the SPLC been in contact with him to take on his case, or cases, pro bono?

I think I know the answer to that question, and it's likely "no".

Professional civil libertarians should always be approached with the utmost caution for those of your rights that they are willing to defend are usually only those which they think you should possess and not those which you might already possess.

By the way, I have posted to my blog a belated link to VDARE.COM's donate page today writing the following:

 "Please do donate if possible. Peter Brimelow has been putting out appeals for funds for over a week now; and my apologies to him for not responding more quickly.

"If VDARE.COM were to tank, it is unlikely that any other news source would report on the appalling infringement of civil liberties suffered by the blogger 'Tunnel Rat'."

I would ask all those on VDARE.COM's extensive Links Page and blogroll make a similar appeal.

Best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year!
