Why does the ACLU oppose the Stolen Valor Act? There are at least three cases pending right now. One involves a bogus Medal of Honor, another a bogus General officer, and another various bogus awards. The ACLU is taking the crazy position that these acts do not harm veterans with real awards. they say the law is a violation of "free speech". That's just pure crock! They're just as crazy on this one as they are on the rest of the causes they seem to take up. The Stolen Valor Act was designed to put at end to liars that claim to have been something they were not and thereby misrepresent and discredit those that were. Didn't we get enough of the fake Viet Nam war veterans and all the lies they told about terrible things they did that never happened? Haven't we seen and heard from enough "veterans" who were driven to be outcasts from society and use it as an excuse to cover their drug addiction or violence or whatever? It's disgusting that this even goes to court!
