PROTECTING THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS OF ALL AMERICANS
The American Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) is dedicated to defending the constitutionally-protected civil rights of all Americans.
While many other organizations, such as the ACLU, are intent on shifting court decisions and public opinion against American values, we work every day to safeguard the liberties enshrined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
We hope you will join us in the fight to protect America, the best and last hope for freedom. Your donations will make a difference.

ACRU becomes the American Constitutional Rights Union
ACRU is proud to announce an organizational name change from American Civil Rights Union to American CONSTITUTIONAL Rights Union as we continue to honor the legacy of founder Bob Carleson to “to defend constitutionally-protected rights of all Americans.” As President Lori Roman notes, “we were created as an antidote to the ACLU. We can think of no better way to punctuate that ACRU is the true defender of individual and economic freedoms that are unique and fundamental to our nation than to include “Constitution” in our name.”

Now the mob takes the role of John Wilkes Booth in removing perhaps the greatest of all Lincoln sculptures, the Emancipation Memorial in Lincoln Park, located in northeast Washington, D.C. The preeminent Lincoln scholar of our or any other time, Harry V. Jaffa, said many times that this sculpture, originally referred to as the Freedman’s Memorial, rivaled Daniel French’s Lincoln Memorial creation. The statue was dedicated to honor Lincoln on the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Source: Ken Masugi: Lincoln’s New Assassins
Rioters in Portland, Oregon, destroyed the historic 120-year-old “Thompson Elk Fountain” on Wednesday night near a federal courthouse. The rioters “ripped off wood boards protecting the building’s windows to use for firewood and barricades,” Fox News reported. “Protesters threw water bottles and other projectiles as police fired pepper balls and at least one flash-bang at protesters in front of the courthouse.”

On Wednesday, the Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) released a powerful new ad warning about vandals and rioters destroying a key monument in American culture — the presidents on Mount Rushmore. While the vandals are not likely to actually deface Mount Rushmore anytime soon, their iconoclastic movement has already targeted each of the four presidents on the monument — George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt.
To the protesters who tore down his statue in Los Angeles this month, the priest, friar and saint Junípero Serra represents “hate, bigotry and colonization,” as one activist put it. Nothing would have made Serra sadder, for the real man was a profound lover of all people and especially of the indigenous peoples he came to serve.

WALSH: Rioters Violate Social Distancing. Media Doesn’t Care. But Here’s What They Said About Conservative Protesters
Some of us are old enough to remember the bygone days of three weeks ago. Back in those bad old times, the news media were quite certain that it was brazen and irresponsible and possibly murderous to protest during a pandemic. Such gatherings, we were told, would spread the virus at hyper speed and directly result in countless deaths. Not to harp on ancient history, but I can recall this article from Vox assuring me that protesting under these conditions is racist because it might kill black people.

Chief Justice John Roberts ruled this week that religious gatherings have the same constitutional protections as football games or Who concerts and therefore state governments CAN limit access to worship. The Chief Justice sided with the 4 leftist judges to reach this conclusion. We wish we were making this up. This has left us gasping in surprise, but not giving up - EVER - on defending your first freedom to worship.
Mail-in votes in a local Baltimore, Maryland, election were discarded and not counted due to a ballot error, officials say.
This is what you get with liberals in charge of cities. Law abiding business owners get detained or arrested for opening their businesses, not wearing masks, or protecting their businesses from looters, but criminals can get away with arson, looting, vandalism and wearing whatever they want. Is this America?
In a June 4th letter to the Mayor of West Palm Beach, Florida, ACRU put the Honorable Keith James on official notice that he has no legal authority to suspend Second Amendment rights of his constituents and must immediately rescind his anti-Constitutional "emergency" edict banning the sales of firearms and ammunition.
