ACLU Pres. with Child Porn

"A past president of Virginia’s American Civil Liberties Union chapter was arrested Friday and charged with receiving and possessing child pornography.

Charles Rust-Tierney, 51, of Arlington, made an initial appearance Friday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria and was detained pending a preliminary hearing Wednesday."
The president of a liberal organization busted for child porn? Say it isn’t so.

Juan, would you please stop being such a stupid dipshit.

While it is clearly bad, it no more has anything specifically to do with liberals than a republican acting alone committing immoral acts.

It is a low and plainly visible act to attempt to spray paint entire groups of people with the actions of an unrelated individual.

We all already know you are an idiot, you don’t have to keep pointing it out to us.

A libtard busted for child porn? Say it isn’t so.

What did you expect from the President of an organization that defends NAMBLA(North American Man Boy Love Association)?

You’re a little defensive there, Vroom. Juan didn’t comment at all on the situation, just quoted from the article.

Or not.

Oh, like Mark Foley? You can dish it out but you can’t take it.

Why do you like the ACLU so much anyway?

not


Mark Foley was kicked out of town by his party.


Hmmm… A homosexual predator who’s caught balls-deep in a minor, then gets reelected by his party. That can’t possibly be true, right?


[quote]Kennedy Extols Pedophile Gerry Studds? ?Leadership?
His ‘leadership changed Mass. [children] forever’
By Bryan Marquard
October 15, 2006

Gerry E. Studds, who championed environmental, maritime, and fisheries issues during 24 years in the US House of Representatives and lent an eloquent voice to health and human rights matters, died early yesterday.

First elected in 1972, Studds entered politics as part of a generation emboldened by its opposition to the Vietnam War and turned his focus in Congress to issues close to the hearts of his constituents. A Democrat, Studds had been reelected five times when in 1983 he became the first member of Congress to openly acknowledge he was gay.

Subsequently he became the first openly gay candidate elected to Congress and was re elected five more times before announcing in October 1995 that he would not seek a 13th term representing the 10th Congressional District, which includes New Bedford, the South Shore, Cape Cod, and the Islands.

He publicly disclosed his sexual orientation after a former congressional page, then 27, said in 1983 that he and the congressman had a sexual relationship a decade earlier, when the page was 17. The House censured Studds for sexual misconduct.

Studds, 69, had been hospitalized after falling while walking his dog several days ago. He died in Boston Medical Center of complications from vascular disease, according to his husband, Dean T. Hara.

“Gerry’s leadership changed Massachusetts forever and we’ll never forget him,” US Senator Edward M. Kennedy said in a statement?

During 12 terms in the House, Studds pushed for more funding of AIDS research and worked to repeal the ban on gays and lesbians in the military. In his waning days in Congress, he spoke out on the House floor against the Defense of Marriage Act.

“I have served in this House for 24 years,” Studds said in July 1996. “I have been elected 12 times, the last six times as an openly gay man, and for the last six years I have been in a relationship as loving, caring, as committed, as nurtured and celebrated and sustained by our extended families as any member of this House.”

Studds and Hara married in 2004, a week after gay marriage became legal in Massachusetts.

“It was Gerry’s greatest desire to be a private citizen and to be a private person,” Hara said yesterday?

US Representative William D. Delahunt, who now represents the 10th district, said that “even now, his legacy is alive and well in the halls of Congress.”?

“He was a very formal and reserved guy,” US Representative Barney Frank said yesterday. “When he retired, he retired. One of the ironies of his life was that he was one of the most private people I’ve ever met who was in that kind of public position.”

In 1987, Frank became the second member of Congress to publicly acknowledge he was gay. By being the first, Studds “clearly gave some other people the courage to do that,” Frank said. "It probably had a bigger impact on younger people who said, `You know what, I guess I can think about a political career after all.’ " ?

An odd contrast to the coverage the Boston Globe has given the (so far as we know at the moment) legal activities of former representative Mark Foley.

By being the first, Studds “clearly gave some other people the courage to do that,” Frank said. "It probably had a bigger impact on younger people who said, `You know what, I guess I can think about a political career after all.’ "

Of course as the article notes it only came out that Mr. Studds was gay when a former Congressional page ratted out their illegal sexual relationship ten years earlier. (Which, coincidentally, is also how Barney Frank came to “publicly acknowledge” his sexual persuasion.)

Such leadership! Such heroism!

Even after he died of ‘natural causes’ the libtards supported him and his ‘wife.’

Are you Nuthunter in disguise? Did I say anything whatsoever about the ACLU? Holy shit man, pay attention to what people are actually saying some time instead of the voices in your head.

Foley, too, was a complete and utter shithead. Unfortunately, for the republicans, there is widespread belief that the leadership of the republican party dropped the ball.

Now, if you want to suggest that ranking liberals were aware of this guy’s behavior, and then did nothing or covered it up, then you’d have a parallel to draw.

As it is, you are just making a fool of yourself.

Doogie, this nutjob has been creating a plethora of threads that are all wild-eyed raving lunatic fringe stuff… so it’s not so much the topic I’m railing against.

Ranking liberals knew, didn’t mind and continued to vote for the pedophile.

If he hadn’t retired, they would still be voting for Studds. That’s how sick they truly are.


Back to the topic:
It should be know surprise that an ACLU member did something like this. After all, the ACLU has a history of trying to legalize child porn. Case in point: New York Vs Ferber, 458 U.S. 747

[quote]The ACLU?s position is this: criminalize the production but legalize the sale and distribution of child pornography. This is the kind of lawyerly distinction that no one on the Supreme Court found convincing. And with good reason: as long as a free market in child pornography exists, there will always be some producers willing to risk prosecution. Beyond this, there is also the matter of how the sale of child pornography relates either to free speech or the ends of good government. But most important, the central issue is whether a free society should legalize transactions that involve the wholesale sexploitation of children for profit.?

The ACLU objects to the idea that porn movie producers be required to maintain records of ages of its performers; this would be ? a gross violation of privacy.?[/quote]

Vroom, Vroom, Vroom,…

Tsk, tsk…

Juan points out an ACLU jerk doing something like this, and you assumed a lot, just to attack a fellow conservative?

Pointing out facts is NOT a bad thing. Why do you make it so?

Juan, good post! (And no, he and I are not the same person, unlike you and Balbos.)

Prosecutors say Charles Rust-Tierney, a former official with the Virginia ACLU and a D-C public defender, downloaded images that included the sexual torture of children.

Two-dozen democrats, including Rust-Tierney’s former wife, packed a Virginia courtroom yesterday to testify in favor of his release.

His attorneys have also filed letters of support from more than 30 people, including parents of children Rust-Tierney has coached.

But US Magistrate Judge Theresa Buchanan ordered him to remain in jail. His attorneys say they will appeal.

A spokesman for Arlington police says there have been no reports of inappropriate contact from the parents of children he’s coached in the Arlington Little League in the past year.

FFS, the guy is a FORMER official of that group.

How hard do you have to try to slur the ACLU when you find people that used to work there that later committed wrong doings.

If he was doing this while he was there, and people knew about it, then you might have something to say. And no Juan, don’t switch subjects so that you can come up with something to say, that’s not the way it works.

However, from time to time I do actually laugh at your trolling antics.
