Identity Crisis Episode 21 The Decline of the ACLU
June 13, 2021

In this episode, we attempt to chronicle what we consider the decline of the ACLU. We begin with a game where we take a drink every time Chase Strangio tells a lie in this interview on Democracy Now (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzxEHGU2R7A). Then we discuss this recent New York Times article: “Once a Bastion of Free Speech, the A.C.L.U. Faces an Identity Crisis”: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/06/us/aclu-free-speech.html

Identity Crisis is a weekly column and podcast for young people struggling with the modern orthodoxy of gender identity ideology—developed in collaboration between Plebity and 4W by Sasha White and M.K. Fain. New episodes every Monday!

Religion and Free speech - Daniel Ben-Ami and Jacob Mchangama

One afternoon last June, Salwan Momika, an Iraqi refugee living in Sweden, stepped in front of the largest Mosque in Sweden and lit several pages from the Quran on fire. Momika had sought and received a permit from the Swedish authorities for his provocative demonstration, and there were police monitoring the event.

The event, apparently involving two people, caused international uproar and condemnation from world leaders, especially in the Middle-East. It may affect Sweden’s prospects for entry into NATO, and both the Pope and Putin felt the need to weigh in.
