This is the opposite of what a real civil liberties organization would do.

Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault last year without evidence, received the Rodger Baldwin Courage Award from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California on Sunday.
She appeared at the Beverly Hills event to once again present her sob story, as her failed attempt to impede Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS confirmation has made her an icon in the minds of millions of leftists who do not believe in due process and the presumption of innocence.
“When I came forward last September, I did not feel courageous. I was simply doing my duty as a citizen. I understood that not everyone would welcome my information, and I was prepared for a variety of outcomes, including being dismissed,” she said.
Blasey Ford continued her mission as a Democratic political advocacy during the speech, where she also spoke in favor of the ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
She has become a hero to the empowered women of the feminist Left, who are dedicated to creating anti-constitutional witch hunts in the age of #MeToo.
Activists played Blasey Ford’s testimony outside of an event hosted by the Federalist Society featuring a keynote speech from Kavanaugh just last week:
A vast hall filled with members of the conservative Federalist Society on Thursday night welcomed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as a conquering hero, while outside on a large screen protesters played video from Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing of testimony by Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused him of sexual misconduct.
His appearance marked the first time since joining the bench that Kavanaugh addressed the group that played a key role in his confirmation process. Grinning with pleasure, he delivered an address that was largely a laundry list of people to whom he offered “gratitude” for securing his “new job”— as a justice on the nation’s highest court…
His appearance Thursday did not go off without a hitch. Protesters twice interrupted Kavanaugh’s speech, the shrill sounds of whistles cutting through his words. At one point, there appeared to be a fight for control of the room’s sound between the protesters’ whistles and the crowd’s applause.
In day-to-day life here in the nation’s capital, where Kavanaugh was raised, people express both ardent approval and intense dislike for the justice. The Washington Post reported that Kavanaugh has been met with both insults and applause from other diners at a quiet French restaurant in his suburban Maryland neighborhood.
Even at invitation-only, conservative-friendly events, Kavanaugh meets critics. “You should be ashamed,” yelled a young woman at Kavanaugh at The Ronald Reagan Institute’s celebration of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Kavanaugh had come to the event to listen to his fellow justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, speak about the legacy of O’Connor’s life as the first female Supreme Court justice.
The ACLU, an organization that claims to support the Bill of Rights, has chosen to honor a woman who made a mockery of the 5th Amendment with her unfounded, politically-motivated sexual assault accusations against Kavanaugh. The ACLU serves as a glaring example that no leftist group can be trusted.
