Rapper Macklemore Stars in Incredibly Weird ‘ACLU Card’ Video

Kids these days. They’re so busy with their twittering and their cell phones they don’t know what freedom is anymore. Well, the ACLU aims to change that with a new online promo featuring the rapper Macklemore touting the values of free speech and every American’s right to call the president a dick on the internet that make the ACLU’s mission so important.

Macklemore says, “I’m a rapper. Got a lot of things to do during the day, so something like being beaten with a club, pepper-sprayed, and tased for expressing my political views would really slow me down.”

But it’s not just for minor inconveniences like getting pepper-sprayed that Macklemore got an ACLU Card for, it’s because of the ACLU’s long-standing tradition for free speech. For example:

“The card that says, ‘Hey, girl, it’s your vagina, and you should be able to do what you want with it.’ The card that lets me call the president a dick on the internet if I wanted to––and I don’t want to, but I could.”

Freedom. By Macklemore.
