Why is this not newsworthy?

Oh, it might reflect badly upon the ACLU and their years-long crusade to legalize child pornography.

Got it.

    There is no place on this planet for pedophiles. Years ago these sick scum were caught and you never heard of them again. They died in the prisons ’cause the other inmates couldn’t stand them either. Now it’s the same “catch and release” program for them as illegals.

    I’d rather put those nails through the pedo’s testicles right into the floor of an old abandoned house. Give said pedo a plastic picnic kife and then set the house on fire. His choice on what burns.

    the Entirely-Embargoed-By-The-MSM story about former VA ACLU President Charles Rust-Tierney and his hobby of watching videos of toddlers and infants being tortured and brutally raped.

    I think the key word here is ‘former’. He hasn’t been affiliated with the ACLU for over two years.

    I listened to the comparisons being made between the Fabulous Reverend Ted Haggart and this case by Bill O’Rielly and Michelle Malkin, where they tried to say if Charles Rust-Tierney had been the head of the Christian Coalition we would have wall-to-wall coverage on all of the networks.

    Probably so — IF he had been the current head of the Christian Coalition. Conversely, if he had been the past pastor of a small local church, nobody would have heard about it nationally. (two can play this straw man “what-if”)

    I can’t help but notice that the ‘outrage’ in your story here is not the fact that this fucknozzle committed this horrendous crime, but that the media is not reporting it wall-to-wall and running the ACLU through a wood chipper for its PAST relationship with this vile creature.

    If Charles Rust-Tierney had a current affiliation with the ACLU and the media failed to report on it, I think you would have a valid point. But he hasn’t been affiliated for over two years.

    It’s a lot like saying that since Tim McVeigh had been in the Army prior to bombing the federal building in Oklahoma City, then the Army should be criticized for their affiliation with McVeigh. Its absurd.

    We don’t know why Rust-Tierney is no longer with the ACLU — could it be that he was quietly fired for misbehavior? Maybe they had a problem with the position he took on the Internet Filters case. Maybe he left on his own because he had differences with the ACLU.

    The point is, he hasn’t been affiliated with the ACLU for quite some time, so trying to tie the two together as if both were accomplices in this crime is ludicrous.

    With all of Bill-O’s outrage over the “under reporting” of this story, I notice that not even his FOX Network is making this a national story. Why? Because it is a local one being covered by the local press.

    And before one of you think that I am somehow defending this shit stain — I’m not. Try him, convict him and hang him and repeat if necessary.

    Only if you’re willing to believe that Tierney’s proclivities towards kiddie fiddling manifested themselves after he left the ACLU.

    I suspect that he’s had these ‘proclivities’ long before he started with the ACLU. It still doesn’t make them culpable unless you can demonstrate they were knowingly shielding him or specifically defending his actions.

    The reason why the Ted Haggard story was so prevalent in the media was his then-current affiliation as President of the National Association of Evangelicals and his hypocrisy in statements like:

    “we don’t have to debate about what we should think about homosexual activity. It’s written in the Bible.”

    While at the same time buying large quantities of methamphetamine and blowing a male prostitute.

    Hypocrisy is what made the Ted Haggard story a major one.

    Strange - Vice President Cheney hasn’t worked with Halliburton for a good deal longer than that, yet we hear libtards going on *EVERY FUCKING DAY* about ‘the war waged for Halliburton.’ Sauce for the goose, bunkie.

    I can’t help but notice that the ‘outrage’ in your story here is not the fact that this fucknozzle committed this horrendous crime, but that the media is not reporting it wall-to-wall and running the ACLU through a wood chipper for its PAST relationship with this vile creature.

    Maybe because the ACLU *doesn’t consider child porn a crime* - did you miss that point?

    It’s a lot like saying that since Tim McVeigh had been in the Army prior to bombing the federal building in Oklahoma City, then the Army should be criticized for their affiliation with McVeigh. Its absurd.

    Um, hello? Numerous commentators implied - and a few stated outright - that McVeigh must have picked up his criminal tendencies in the service, and/or the contrary claim that the Army ’should have’ detected the problem and weeded him out. (Yes, libtards will make logically contrary statements, often in the same rant.)

    We don’t know why Rust-Tierney is no longer with the ACLU — could it be that he was quietly fired for misbehavior?

    And that would be somehow more acceptable? I seem to recall the entire Republican Party being pilloried for failing to keelhaul Foley for a far tamer offenses (where, as it turned out, *no crime* was committed).

    Maybe he left on his own because he had differences with the ACLU.

    Looks to me like he’s living out their principles. You haven’t heard a condemnation from them, have you?

    The point is, he hasn’t been affiliated with the ACLU for quite some time, so trying to tie the two together as if both were accomplices in this crime is ludicrous.

    Again, look at the Cheney-Halliburton comments that come out constantly. I assume you have been equally vigilant in quashing these?

    And before one of you think that I am somehow defending this shit stain — I’m not.

    No, but you’re doing your damnedest to protect the ACLU - which is almost worse.

    LC Gunsniper, true enough.. and with the increase in technology and transfer in this “information age” people have access to alot more things than they did before..

    Yes, you are correct. But what do you think the next move for Cheney is going to be once he leaves office? How unrealistic do you think it will be for him to slide right back into Halliburton?

    But that is straying far from the point here. There are accusations flying about all sorts of things from both sides, but none of them have anything to do with this topic.

    Maybe because the ACLU *doesn’t consider child porn a crime* - did you miss that point?

    Actually the ACLU seems to have a different view than the one you seem to have of them:

    The ACLU opposes child pornography that uses real children in its depictions. Material, however, which is produced without using real children, and is not otherwise obscene, is protected under the First Amendment. H.R. 4623 attempts to ban this protected material, and therefore will likely meet the same fate as the provisions stricken from the Child Pornography Prevention Act (CPPA) in Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition. [emphasis mine]

    The issue where the ACLU has a problem revolves around creating a law that prohibits imaginary creations thus creating a slippery slope that could spread from fake ‘children’ to anything else that might be deemed “prohibited” in the future.

    But all that said, it doesn’t mean I agree with their argument in its entirety. Slippery slopes can be shored up and still provide the protections needed for other ‘virtual’ depictions.

    I often find myself at odds with the positions the ACLU chooses to take on different issues, but sometimes I think they take those positions NOT to win that position, but to clarify them because some laws are too broadly written that they can have the potential to go beyond what they were intended to.

    I found this discussion to be interesting:

    Arlington, Va.: This sounds like a complicated case. What is the ACLU’s main objection to the 1998 Child Online Protection Act?

    Ann Beeson: It would reduce the conversation on the Internet to the level of a sandbox by making sexually valuable speech for adults a crime. While complicated, the legal issue is actually quite simple. The Supreme Court has said on many prior occasions that you can’t “burn the house to roast the pig” in this way.

    The thing is, you see the words, “Child Pornography” and think how can any civilized person be against laws to prohibit it. The problem arises when the law has the potential to go beyond what it was intended to do — and that is where the ACLU steps in. I don’t see them being against child pornography laws as long as they don’t infringe upon the rights of others not connected to child pornography.

    Um, hello? Numerous commentators implied - and a few stated outright - that McVeigh must have picked up his criminal tendencies in the service, and/or the contrary claim that the Army ’should have’ detected the problem and weeded him out. (Yes, libtards will make logically contrary statements, often in the same rant.)

    I think that McVeigh picked up most of his ideology not from the US Army, but from the Michigan militia and radical talk show hosts. Blaming the Army is silly, because there would be far more McVeighs than the one.

    And that would be somehow more acceptable? I seem to recall the entire Republican Party being pilloried for failing to keelhaul Foley for a far tamer offenses (where, as it turned out, *no crime* was committed).

    Foley was still a sitting Congressman and active in the Republican Party. It would have been different if he had been a former Congressman and not being covered up by other members of the Republican leadership.

    Again, look at the Cheney-Halliburton comments that come out constantly. I assume you have been equally vigilant in quashing these?

    Again, you are picking apples in an orange grove. Cheney still has a working connection to Halliburton in the sense of a government/contractor relationship, whereas Charles Rust-Tierney and the ACLU have not had any ties for over two years.

    No, but you’re doing your damnedest to protect the ACLU - which is almost worse.

    I am looking at the bigger picture. I see the ACLU as a necessary evil.

    More Bullshit by DJ Allyn:

    But what do you think the next move for Cheney is going to be once he leaves office? How unrealistic do you think it will be for him to slide right back into Halliburton?

    So you acknowledge that he currently has nothing to do with them? *JUST LIKE* yiou say Tierney has nothing to do with the ACLU!!! Yet you claim it’s ‘apples and oranges. How? Just because you say so? Your attempt to move the goalposts has been duly noted.

    Incidentally, you *HAVE NO IDEA* what Cheney *will* do any more than I do, and in any event it’s irrelevant. Now, why would you be introducing an irrelevant smokescreen like that?

    The issue where the ACLU has a problem revolves around creating a law that prohibits imaginary creations thus creating a slippery slope that could spread from fake ‘children’ to anything else that might be deemed “prohibited” in the future.

    So, it’s OK with you if someone produces ‘fake’ Child porn? How is that better? Do you honestly think that child predators will be satisfied with that? Seems more like the ACLU is trying to create a ready-made defense for child predators. And you are all too willing to back them up, as usual.

    Foley was still a sitting Congressman and active in the Republican Party. It would have been different if he had been a former Congressman and not being covered up by other members of the Republican leadership.

    Foley *COMMITTED NO CRIME* - his behavior was despicable, but numerous sources *DELIBERATELY LIED* about what happened, who knew what, and exactly what was done. I haven’t heard you *OR THE ACLU* defend the truth at any point in the process. I have heard numerous sources paste the blame on *ALL REPUBLICANS* including thousands who had *NO* knowledge or involvement. I haven’t heard you *OR THE ACLU* defending the innocent on that point either; if anything, you seem to be all for it.

    Second, the Republican Party as an organization does *NOT* as a matter of policy promote or condone Foley’s behavior. The ACLU *DOES* as a matter of organizational policy promote access to all forms of pornography including child porn.

    Third, *DON’T YOU DARE* suggest that Foley being a ‘former’ Congressman would have made a difference. We all know what happened when a sitting Democrat forced a page into *ACTUAL* sex on numerous occasions - he was lauded, celebrated and put into a leadership position. It’s a political double standard and you know it.

    And *DON’T YOU DARE* try to pretend that if Tierney were a ‘former Republican Congressman’ you would somehow have the same level of understanding. You would be first in line to condemn all Republicans as guilty by association AND YOU KNOW IT.

    Again, you are picking apples in an orange grove.

    Oh, I see, you’re entitled to simply wave away any contrary view by simply declaring it invalid. Must be fucking nice to be so superior to all other humans. Who died and made you God?

    Cheney still has a working connection to Halliburton in the sense of a government/contractor relationship, whereas Charles Rust-Tierney and the ACLU have not had any ties for over two years.

    Bullshit and bullshit. You have no evidence for either of these; you are simply declaring it to be so because you want it to be so for your convenience.

    You are intellectually dishonest and arrogant. You have adopted the icon of a group that butchered my ancestors, and made common cause with a group that would torture my children. FUCK YOU.

    Incidentally, you *HAVE NO IDEA* what Cheney *will* do any more than I do, and in any event it’s irrelevant. Now, why would you be introducing an irrelevant smokescreen like that?

    You are correct, I don’t know. But it was your strawman — I was just tweaking with it.

    So, it’s OK with you if someone produces ‘fake’ Child porn? How is that better? Do you honestly think that child predators will be satisfied with that? Seems more like the ACLU is trying to create a ready-made defense for child predators. And you are all too willing to back them up, as usual.

    I think you are missing the point. Are you ready for the government to start legislating your imagination?

    You have to look at it this way: if the law is flawed enough that the ACLU can convince a court to poke holes in it, then it is up to the legislative branch to find a way to patch the holes. Think of the ACLU as a product tester.

    Foley *COMMITTED NO CRIME* - his behavior was despicable, but numerous sources *DELIBERATELY LIED* about what happened, who knew what, and exactly what was done.

    He didn’t violate the rules of trust? You would have felt comfortable having a forty-something man hit on your teenage son?

    At the very least, he is guilty of abusing his position of power.

    Second, the Republican Party as an organization does *NOT* as a matter of policy promote or condone Foley’s behavior.

    Except when they need his vote on something and they turn a blind eye to something they knew was going on.

    To be fair though, there were plenty of Democrats who knew also, and they shouldn’t get a pass either.

    And *DON’T YOU DARE* try to pretend that if Tierney were a ‘former Republican Congressman’ you would somehow have the same level of understanding. You would be first in line to condemn all Republicans as guilty by association AND YOU KNOW IT.

    And don’t YOU dare to make the assumption that I am like every other cookie-cutter Democrat.

    Here is where I would really have a problem if Tierney had been a FORMER Congressman: If he had gone through his career blasting child molesters, and it turns out he was one all along, then I would be winding up the hypocrisy siren loud and long.

    But as it stands, he is just a worthless piece of skin who happened to be at one time the head of the ACLU.

    Bullshit and bullshit. You have no evidence for either of these; you are simply declaring it to be so because you want it to be so for your convenience.

    That Cheney doesn’t represent the government who holds the contracts to Haliburton and that Tierney no longer has ties to the ACLU?

    You are intellectually dishonest and arrogant. You have adopted the icon of a group that butchered my ancestors, and made common cause with a group that would torture my children. FUCK YOU.

    I have? What icon is that? Are you telling me that the ACLU butchered your ancestors?

    I am just someone sitting here making some observations. You might not like what I am saying, but I can’t be responsible for that. Your dislike is on you.

    I am not a policy maker, nor does my opinion take money from your pocket. I poke a stick here once in a while because it causes you to think a little. I am under no illusion that anything I say here will change someone’s mind one iota.

    I am not only the tech guy here, I am also the self-appointed foil. I usually speak from the position of what I see. I could be wrong — I admit it. I am fallible. But it is YOUR job to convince me that I am wrong.

    whereas Charles Rust-Tierney and the ACLU have not had any ties for over two years.

    Ah, I seem to recall seeing somewhere that his wife is still working for the ACLU??

    A case in point, the following graphic has the potential to be illegal because it depicts a “child”:

    This is the kind of thing that the ACLU is talking about. It isn’t that they are against prohibiting child pornography, it is that they don’t want such a law to go further than what it was intended to do.

    The public standard test is pretty vague, when you consider that some people might think the above graphic is dispicable and others see it as harmless.
