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.
