The ACLU is Continuing Their Illegal Campaign to Try to Get Me Killed and to Publicly Shame Me for My Mental Health Disability

I just wanted to write a quick post to let the whole world know that I heard back from the ACLU, after I sent them a letter, informing them that their distribution of the illegal video recording of me from May 8th, 2018, is grossly illegal, and to demand that they retract their grossly false and defamatory claims about me, and to demand that they cease and desist in their illegal campaign to publicly shame an older, disabled woman for her mental health disability.

The ACLU told me that they are continuing their illegal campaign to try to get an innocent and lifelong human and civil rights licensed attorney activist and older, poor, disabled woman (me) killed. The ACLU told me that they are continuing their illegal campaign to publicly shame an older, poor, disabled woman (me) for her mental health disability.

Apparently, the ACLU is disavowing their disability rights and privacy rights campaigns.

Apparently, the ACLU is disavowing its once proud legacy of defending the civil liberties of one and all.

No one should join the ACLU. No one should support the ACLU.

The ACLU is an entirely evil organization that publicly shames older, poor, disabled women for their mental health disabilities for moral outrage industry money and gain.

The ACLU destroyed the Living While Black movement by turning it into a blood sport of trying to get older, poor, disabled white women with obvious or seeming mental health disabilities killed for moral outrage industry money and gain.

The ACLU are charlatans and frauds.

The ACLU should shutter themselves in shame. They have exposed themselves as bigots who don’t care if they destroy innocent persons’ lives and who don’t care if they get innocent persons killed, as long as they make moral outrage money off of their corpses.

Demand for Retraction and Apology Letter to the ACLU

Notice to Cease and Desist and Notice of Demand for Retraction and Apology

April 18, 2019

Attorney David Cole, National Legal Director

American Civil Liberties Union

125 Broad Street, 18thFloor

New York, NY 10004

Re:  Defamation of Character of Sarah Braasch

Attorney Cole:

First and foremost, this letter serves as notice that the video recording made of me on May 8th, 2018, in my Yale University dormitory, the Hall of Graduate Studies, was made illegally, under Connecticut State Law, and the distribution of this video recording, either the audio or the video therefrom, is illegal under Connecticut State Law, including under CT General Statutes, Chapter 952, Section 53A, Provisions 189 a and b.  I intend to pursue prosecution for the illegal distribution of this video recording to the full extent of the law.  The distribution of this illegal video recording is a felony under CT State Law, with a statute of limitations of 5 years.  I demand that you remove this video wherever it may have been posted by any agent of the American Civil Liberties Union.  I demand that you remove any links to this video wherever these links may have been posted by any agent of the American Civil Liberties Union. 

This letter serves as a demand that all American Civil Liberties Union agents cease and desist their grossly false and defamatory statements about me, Sarah Braasch, immediately.  This letter also serves as a demand that all American Civil Liberties Union agents who have made such grossly false and defamatory statements about me, including, but not limited to, Attorney Carl Takei, immediately and publicly retract those statements and immediately and publicly apologize to me, Sarah Braasch, for having made those grossly false and defamatory statements.  

These grossly false and defamatory statements include, but are not limited to, the following:

Attorney Carl Takei’s grossly false and defamatory statements about me in his essay on the ACLU website, Colleges and Universities Have a Racial Profiling Problem.  Attorney Takei explicitly states that I reported the woman whom I had encountered in the small common room next to my isolated dorm room to the Yale campus police, because I regarded her as suspicious, because of the color of her skin.  Attorney Takei explicitly states that my call to the Yale campus police was unjustified. Attorney Takei explicitly states that I was motivated by racial bias.  Attorney Takei explicitly states that I was weaponizing the Yale campus police. This is a straight up, bald faced lie, on the part of the ACLU, meant to destroy my life, my career as a lifelong human and civil rights licensed attorney activist, and ruin my reputation and livelihood, with reckless disregard for the truth, a lie which almost drove me to suicide and incited my murder.  

The ACLU has produced a video which grossly defames me as guilty of racial harassment.  This video is available on the ACLU’s website and their YouTube Channel, and has been widely viewed and distributed online.  The ACLU explicitly states in the video that I reported the woman whom I had encountered in the small common room next to my isolated dorm room to the Yale campus police, because I regarded her as suspicious, because of the color of her skin.  The ACLU explicitly states in the video that my call to the Yale campus police was unjustified.  The ACLU explicitly states in the video that I was motivated by racial bias.  The ACLU explicitly states in the video that I was weaponizing the Yale campus police.  This is a straight up, bald faced lie, on the part of the ACLU, meant to destroy my life, my career as a lifelong human and civil rights licensed attorney activist, and ruin my reputation and livelihood, with reckless disregard for the truth, a lie which almost drove me to suicide and incited my murder.  

Moreover, this video was made of me, illegally, and widely distributed online, illegally, for the purpose of shaming me for my disability, my mental health disability, including by the ACLU.  The fact that I was targeted for my mental health disability is made abundantly clear in the video itself, when my attacker repeatedly calls me psychotic and says that I should be put in a mental institution.  She also explicitly states that it was Yale who illegally fed her my personal information, including my mental health history, when she says that Yale knows that I’m crazy and that I should be institutionalized. That the ACLU would participate in the online public shaming of a middle aged, disabled woman, who was made a target, because of her mental health disability, is a renunciation of the ACLU’s campaigns regarding disability rights, as well as privacy, including online privacy.  The most defamatory and disgusting thing that the ACLU did in producing this video meant to destroy my life, a video which almost drove me to suicide and incited my murder, was to purposely and purposefully omit those portions of the video that make it clear that my attacker was targeting me for my mental health disability, as well as those portions of the video where my attacker stigmatizes mental illness and makes clear that Yale was illegally feeding her my personal information, in gross violation of my privacy, including my mental health history.  

The damage to my life, reputation, livelihood, good name, and career are incalculable.  I was forced to flee my dorm room and then campus. I was suicidal for near a year and forced into hiding for my personal safety.  I continue to be defamed as a racist.  I can’t even begin to count the death threats and threats of violence that I have received.  I can’t even begin to count the number of instances of defamation as guilty of racial harassment that I have endured in the national and international news media, as well as on social media, including on the ACLU’s own website, its YouTube Channel, and social media accounts, including those of the ACLU’s many agents and affiliates.  My academic and legal and human and civil rights careers are over.  I will never be able to secure gainful employment.  I will no longer be able to support myself. 

I had been a lifelong human and civil rights licensed attorney activist who had devoted her life to undermining oppression in all of its many forms, including racism.  No one who has ever known me has ever heard or seen me say or do anything racist ever.  Everything that I had wished for my life is no longer possible.  Everything that I had strived for my entire life has been destroyed, it has been stripped from me through no fault of my own.  And, most ironically, I had been an ardent supporter of the ACLU, a card-carrying member, and a donor.  

As a result, I immediately demand the following: 

  1. The ACLU will retract and remove Attorney Takei’s grossly false and defamatory essay, wherever it exists, including all links thereto;
  2. The ACLU will retract and remove its grossly false and defamatory video about me, wherever it exists, including all links thereto;  
  3. The ACLU will retract and remove all other grossly false and defamatory statements about me, wherever they exist, including all links thereto;
  4. Attorney Takei will write a new essay, including an apology to me, and he will explain the gross illegality of the prior essay, as well as its grossly defamatory character; this new essay will take the place of the former grossly false and defamatory essay, wherever it exists, including all links thereto;
  5. The ACLU will produce a new video, including an apology to me, and the ACLU will explain the gross illegality of the prior video, as well as its grossly defamatory character; this new video will take the place of the former grossly false and defamatory video, wherever it exists, including all links thereto;
  6. The ACLU will produce a statement, including an apology to me, and the ACLU will explain the gross illegality of all other grossly false and defamatory statements about me, as well as their grossly defamatory character; this new statement will take the place of the former grossly false and defamatory statements, wherever they exist, including all links thereto;
  7. The ACLU will issue a public apology to me for concluding that I acted with any racial animus in connection with this incidence, and stating that all the evidence known to the ACLU suggests otherwise; and 
  8. The ACLU will publicly announce that I have been publicly misrepresented as engaging in discriminatory misconduct. Indeed my work at Yale and beyond evidence that I harbor no racial animus whatsoever. To the contrary, I have dedicated myself to causes of social justice including the cause of eradicating all forms of discrimination. 

I expect a response from you in short order.

Sincerely, 

Sarah Braasch

The ACLU Attacked Me For My Mental Health Disability YouTube Channel Video and Transcript

Below please find my The ACLU Attacked Me For My Mental Health Disability YouTube Channel Video and Transcript. Many persons have requested transcripts of my videos, and I will provide them here, especially the videos of my full, detailed account of what really happened during the now notorious Living or Napping While Black incident at Yale, which was actually a hate crime hoax, and the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police were complicit.

Here is the The ACLU Attacked Me For My Mental Health Disability YouTube Channel Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fld1qCzRNL4

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi, this is Sarah Braasch. Welcome or welcome back to my channel.

Today, I want to talk about how the ACLU perpetuated the Living or Napping While Black hate crime hoax against me, and how, specifically, the ACLU attacked me for my mental health disability.  This is part and parcel of how the ACLU destroyed the Living While Black movement by turning it into a bloodsport of trying to get older, poor white women with obvious or seeming mental health disabilities killed for moral outrage industry profit and gain.  

So much for the ACLU’s much vaunted Disability Rights Campaign.

The ACLU has thrown over their once proud legacy of defending the civil liberties of one and all. Now, the ACLU consistently participates in the violation of civil liberties.  

I have already addressed how the recording of me from May 8th, 2018, is grossly illegal, as is the dissemination thereof.  

But, today I want to address how the ACLU used and edited this video to attack me for my disability, for my mental health disability, as part of their effort to destroy my life and career, which almost drove me to suicide and incited my murder.  

In the video, the full video, my attacker at Yale makes clear, repeatedly, that she is targeting me, at least in great part, because of my disability, my mental health disability. 

My attacker at Yale calls me psychotic and crazy.  She says that I should be committed to a mental institution.  She also says, repeatedly, that Yale knows that I’m crazy and psychotic and that Yale knows that I should be in a mental institution.  

At the time, this was shocking to me, to hear a complete and utter stranger speak about me as if she knew me well and had had numerous discussions about my mental health history with the Yale Administration.  

The ACLU had this video and used this video to create the grossly false and wrongful and illegal and defamatory video about me that they produced and disseminated widely online. 

But, the most disgusting thing that the ACLU did is that they removed all portions of the video that make it clear that my attacker at Yale was targeting me because of my mental health disability.  They removed all portions of the video that make it clear that Yale had been illegally feeding my attacker my personal information, including my mental health history.  

The ACLU removed all portions of the video that make it clear that the illegally recorded video was meant to mock and shame me for my mental health disability, and to exclude me from campus.  

This is why I can say, definitively, that the ACLU attacked me for my mental health disability.  

The ACLU knowingly participated in a campaign to shame a disabled woman for her disability.  The ACLU knowingly used a video meant to shame a disabled woman for her disability.  A video that was obviously recorded illegally, when the disabled woman was standing in her own doorway, where she had a reasonable expectation of privacy.  

The ACLU removed those portions of the video that make this clear, that this was a campaign to attack me based upon my mental health disability.  

I NEVER thought that I would see the day when the ACLU would do such a thing.  

It is disgusting.  It is beyond disgusting.  

The ACLU debases their once proud legacy as the premiere defender of civil liberties for one and all. 

The ACLU helped to lead a global defamation campaign against me.  They endangered my life.  

I can’t even tell you how many times I almost killed myself.  I already had PTSD.

I was being hunted by murderers.  

My life and career have been destroyed.  

But, the ACLU didn’t care. They didn’t care if I lived or died. They didn’t even care if they destroyed the Living While Black movement.  

Shame on you, ACLU. Shame on you.  

You are the bigots. You are the racists.  I hope selling your souls was worth it.  

Thank you for spending this time with me.

The ACLU is in Gross Violation of My Privacy Rights Under CT State Law YouTube Channel Video and Transcript

Below please find my The ACLU is in Gross Violation of My Privacy Rights Under CT State Law YouTube Channel Video and Transcript. Many persons have requested transcripts of my videos, and I will provide them here, especially the videos of my full, detailed account of what really happened during the now notorious Living or Napping While Black incident at Yale, which was actually a hate crime hoax, and the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police were complicit.

Here is the The ACLU is in Gross Violation of My Privacy Rights Under CT State Law YouTube Channel Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3Cnp8nSUi8

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi, this is Sarah Braasch. Welcome or welcome back to my channel.

Today, I’m just wondering which of the ACLU’s attorneys is going to go to prison for violating my privacy rights.  

The ACLU grossly violated my privacy rights under CT state law when they widely distributed online the illegal recording that was made of me on May 8th, 2018.  

The recording was illegal, because CT is a 2 party state, which means that both parties must consent to a private 2-way conversation being recorded, even if the conversation took place in public.  Although, this conversation did not take place in public.  

But, what I was researching this evening was the dissemination of the illegal video of me from May 8th, 2018.  

The ACLU, as I mentioned in my prior video, has edited this video and disseminated it widely online, in an effort to attack me for my mental health disability, and to destroy my life and career, nearly driving me to suicide and inciting my murder.  

The recording of this video was clearly illegal under CT state law, not that the Yale campus police will ever pursue criminal charges therefor.  Despite my repeated requests to pursue criminal charges, including with the District Attorney’s office, the Yale campus police continues to ignore my attempts to secure justice.  

But, I’m interested this evening in the illegality, under CT state law, of the dissemination of this clearly illegally recorded video of me from May 8th, 2018, wherein I’m standing in the threshold of my isolated dorm room, on private property, in my dormitory on Yale’s campus, at approximately 2 am.  So, I clearly have a reasonable expectation of privacy in this location.  Additionally, I neither knew that I was being recorded or filmed, nor did I consent to being recorded or filmed.  In fact, at one point in the video, I am clearly objecting to having my photo taken, and the female Yale police officer present motions for me to turn around, so that my face will not be visible.  

CT General Statutes Chapter 952, Section 53A, Provisions 189 a and b make clear that both the recording of this video and the subsequent dissemination of this video are grossly illegal.  They are actually either or both a Class C and Class D felony.  The statute of limitations in Connecticut for a felony is 5 years.  A Class D felony is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $5k. 

189 a reads:

(a) A person is guilty of voyeurism when, (1) with malice, such person knowingly photographs, films, videotapes or otherwise records the image of another person (A) without the knowledge and consent of such other person, (B) while such other person is not in plain view, and (C) under circumstances where such other person has a reasonable expectation of privacy

Please note that plain view here means in the public space.  So, I was most definitely not in plain view.  

189 b reads:

(a) A person is guilty of disseminating voyeuristic material when such person disseminates a photograph, film, videotape or other recorded image of another person without the consent of such other person and knowing that such photograph, film, videotape or image was taken, made or recorded in violation of section 53a-189a.

The ACLU had every reason to know that the recording of me was made in violation of 189 a.  But, regardless, they are now on notice that I did not consent to this recording, I do not now consent to its dissemination, and it was made in violation of 53a-189a.  

I demand that the ACLU immediately remove this illegal video of me.  

I demand that the ACLU replace this illegal video with one which explains the illegality of the prior video and apologizes to me for having done incalculable harm to an entirely innocent lifelong human and civil rights licensed attorney activist.  

I almost killed myself. 

I was being hunted by murderers.  

My life and career are over. My reputation and livelihood are ruined. 

Everything that I had worked for my entire life has been destroyed.

Do you care, ACLU?  Do you care?  Do you care that you destroyed the Living While Black movement?

The ACLU Almost Drove Me to Suicide by Lying About Me for Moral Outrage Industry Money and Publicity

Below please find my The ACLU Almost Drove Me to Suicide by Lying About Me for Moral Outrage Industry Money and Publicity YouTube Channel Video and Transcript. Many persons have requested transcripts of my videos, and I will provide them here, especially the videos of my full, detailed account of what really happened during the now notorious Living or Napping While Black incident at Yale, which was actually a hate crime hoax, and the Yale Administration and the Yale Campus Police were complicit.

Here is the The ACLU Almost Drove Me to Suicide by Lying About Me for Moral Outrage Industry Money and Publicity YouTube Channel Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yocl6Mxx9-k

Here is the transcript thereof:

Hi, this is Sarah Braasch. Welcome or welcome back to my channel.

Today, I want to talk about a grossly wrongful, illegal, and defamatory video that the ACLU has produced about me.  

The ACLU has produced a video which grossly defames me as guilty of racial harassment.  This video is available on the ACLU’s website and their YouTube Channel, and has been widely viewed and distributed online.  

The ACLU explicitly states in the video that I reported the woman whom I had encountered in the small common room next to my isolated dorm room to the Yale campus police, because I regarded her as suspicious, because of the color of her skin.  The ACLU explicitly states in the video that my call to the Yale campus police was unjustified.  The ACLU explicitly states in the video that I was motivated by racial bias.  The ACLU explicitly states in the video that I was weaponizing the Yale campus police. This is a straight up, bald faced lie, on the part of the ACLU, meant to destroy my life, my career as a lifelong human and civil rights licensed attorney activist, and ruin my reputation and livelihood, with reckless disregard for the truth, a lie which almost drove me to suicide and incited my murder.  I will never now be able to secure gainful employment.  I will never be able to support myself.  Everything that I had worked for and wished for my life has been taken from me, through no fault of my own.  

The ACLU has widely distributed the illegally recorded video of me, wherein I am standing in the doorway of my dorm room in Yale’s on campus graduate student housing, at approximately 2 am.  I do not do or say anything even remotely racist in the video.  I have a reasonable expectation of privacy, on private property, standing in the doorway of my dorm room at 2 am.  Also, Connecticut is a 2 party state, which means that both parties have to consent to their private, 2-way conversation being recorded.  I not only did not consent to being recorded, I didn’t even know that I was being recorded illegally.  Moreover, this video was made of me, illegally, and widely distributed online, for the purpose of shaming me for my disability, my mental health disability.  

The fact that I was targeted for my mental health disability is made abundantly clear in the video itself, when my attacker repeatedly calls me psychotic and says that I should be put in a mental institution.  She also explicitly states that it was Yale who illegally fed her my personal information, including my mental health history, when she says that Yale knows that I’m crazy and that I should be institutionalized.  

That the ACLU would participate in the online public shaming of a middle aged, disabled woman, who was made a target, because of her mental health disability, is a renunciation of the ACLU’s campaigns regarding disability rights, as well as privacy, including online privacy.

The most defamatory and disgusting thing that the ACLU did in producing this video meant to destroy my life, a video which almost drove me to suicide and incited my murder, was to purposely and purposefully omit those portions of the video that make it clear that my attacker was targeting me for my mental health disability, as well as those portions of the video where my attacker stigmatizes mental illness and makes clear that Yale was illegally feeding her my personal information, in gross violation of my privacy, including my mental health history.  

The ACLU should be utterly ashamed of itself.  They need to retract this video and produce a video in its place that apologizes to me for having destroyed my life and career and for having made such disgusting and grossly false and defamatory statements about me.  

The ACLU has turned itself into a travesty of its former self, a one time defender of civil liberties for one and all.  The ACLU has turned its back on and now makes a mockery of its once proud legacy.  

ACLU, do you want to know who is responsible for destroying the now defunct Living While Black movement? You are, by turning the Living While Black movement into a bloodsport of trying to get older, lower class, white women with obvious or seeming mental health disabilities killed.  You did this.  I tried desperately to save and protect the Living While Black movement, but you successfully destroyed it.  You destroyed it for donations and press and feigned moral authority.  I hope you’re proud of yourselves.  I hope selling your souls was worth it.  

Thank you for spending this time with me.
