ACLU leader resigns after post about shooting Trump supporters. An ACLU leader has resigned after posting on Facebook that supporters of leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump be shot before Election Day. Loring Wirbel, co-chairman of the Colorado Springs, Colo., chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, said:
We have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, ‘This is (Nazi propaganda minister Joseph) Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him, I will have to shoot you before Election Day,’
Wirbel offered the “just joking” defense. The ACLU reportedly condemned Wirbel’s post.
