If you are truly looking to understand their position, then you seriously need to evaluate your statement there...

If the issue was truly about free speech, then why the guns?
The honest recognition is that the guns were a form of intimidation. A show of force harkening back to the days of nazis and KKK members who weren't interested in "free speech", but rather interested in intimidation.

THAT is at the heart of the ACLU move.

You are inserting your own focus into this while assuming (incorrectly) the motivation of the ACLU.

See above.

And the truth is that the ACLU has represented people all over the political spectrum, so the repeated whinings about "bias" from the right are boring and predictable.

The ACLU represents somebody from the right?
The right complains the ACLU is finally doing its job.
The ACLU represents somebody from the left?
The right complains the ACLU is showing its bias.

It's a boring and redactive trick that doesn't fool those who are actually paying attention.

Perhaps they should ask their law schools for a refund.
Funny how you arrive at that conclusion while completely ignoring what they actually said...
