People not for the American Way: Manuel Miranda, writing for The Wall Street Journal, notes a list of positions (compiled by the Committee for Justice) that Ralph Neas and People (not) for the American Way have taken on various court cases.
Among the things he opposes: parental choice in education, voluntary prayer in public places, pornography filters on public library computers, regulation of hard-core Internet porn and even restrictions on simulated child porn. Not that Mr. Neas is a negative fellow. He supports deleting "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, enfranchising felons, forcing openly gay scoutmasters on the Boy Scouts, partial-birth abortion, judicially imposed tax hikes, removing the Ten Commandments from public places, and, of course, racial quotas in college admissions.
Missing from the list: Support for really bad hair plugs.
That's something that I think nearly all Americans are against.
