    It seems to me, the ACLU is missing in action...
    They claim to be the defender of freedom and individual rights and work against abuses of power by our government...sounds good until you examine just what they do.
    They target religious institutions and defend criminals...

        FYI - breitbart is a radical nazi white nationalist propaganda sight, not a legitimate source of news or commentary. Pig Pile Steve Bannon, racist white supremacist and past senior adviser to short timer Trump was once the chief.

        Can you possibly imagine nazis in the white house? With Bannon gone and perhaps going to prison, there are at least 2 remaining and that's unthinkable.

          Your opinion of Breitbart is so far out in space as to put it in the category of space junk . Nazi's ? Really .........suggestion ,listen to them instead of Rachel Madcow for an hour and you'll get a reality intervention .
          Maybe .

            Rachel Madow is a nice person but no down the middle commentator. She is as left as they come but in a more moderate and calm voice.
            Breitbart is a right wing website. It was better when Andrew Breitbart ran it, too bad he passed away before his time.
            The question about the ACLU is a valid one.
            Care to comment on that?

              Why are you dragging superb investigative reporter Rachel Maddow into your equation? I exposed white nationalist breitbart garbage because someone was trying to 'cite' it as a legitimate source which everyone knows it's not unless fake phony propaganda is a preference.

              The ACLU steps in when they deem it's necessary, and it is unnecessary to interrupt the most in-depth Earth shattering essential criminal investigation of the most corrupt and crooked Russian puppet president running amok with impunity. Mr. Trump is the number one threat to the world right now as many military experts and Americans assert and the Mueller investigation must unearth the conspiracy, obstruction, abuses and constitutional violations to hopefully salvage whats left of the United States.

                In your dreams Jake. We will see very shortly if you are right or the rest of us sane people are right.
                The ACLU has a long history of anti Christian and Anti American actions...
                No need to disect where they are coing from. They are biased as hell.
                Just pointing out their hypocrisy.

                  "For almost 100 years, the ACLU has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States." - ACLU mission statement

                  Defending the Constitution doesn't sound anti-American or anti-Christian to me.

                    Like all liberal things, the ACLU is steeped deeply in hypocrisy.  Where were they when the Christian bakers were attacked for not baking a cake for a gay wedding?  This is just one example and there are MANY of them.  A truth of life is "Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of its stated intent."

                      The same place they were while defending the rights of black folks to eat at a public lunch counter. If you want to be considered a "public accommodation" you will have to operate as such. From that prospective liberalism/progressism is spot on.......

                      A judge ruled against the bakery, not the ACLU.

                      Personally, I think anyone who has a business on private property should be able to refuse service to anyone they choose. But not on public property.

                      Regardless, Colorado state law prohibits public places including businesses from refusing service based on factors such as race, sex, marital status or sexual orientation.

                      If you don't like the ruling, blame the Colorado state legislature and not the ACLU.

              For one Rachael Maddow IS way worse than Breitbart as to honest journalism , Listen to Wilkow for an hour , Two when the ACLU "Celebrates " the actions against Trump's atty ; there s something drastically wrong with the perceptions of whats right and wrong with this incident .   Three , The ACLU is a public and private funded non -profit  , working [supposedly ] for the liberties  and protections of all people ........normally against the government powers - This is a turn around on their part or rather a choosing of the corrupted party over another .
              Not Good .

                One difference being breitbart is a garbage site that promotes white nationalist nazi propaganda, trash that our relatives died for in the 1940's to stop, while Rachel fights the good fight of righteousness, shedding light on the extreme dangers of Spanky Trump's unhinged, radical white supremacist goals and desires which is where most conservative congressional accomplices are in lock step with, UNREAL in 2018

                Why should the ACLU get involved with Mueller's criminal investigation of Trump and his corrupt family and friends that is destroying the United States day by day hour by hour? Mueller's investigation is by the book and yielding critically vital evidence on several fronts. Blustering cry babies like Sean Hammity and all weirdo stooges at right wing propaganda outlet fox lies channel know this extremely important criminal investigation has already wrapped a tight little noose of justice around Spanky's orange neck and now, the New York branch of the FBI might have tapes and vids confiscated from sloppy Michael Cohen, 'The Fixer', Donny's personal lawyer..

                Honestly, what did Mr. Trump expect when he insanely went to war with our entire compliment of law enforcement officers?

                  Maddow needs to have her anxiety issues dealt with quickly , she's the quintessential nut case needing a sanity  intervention , but I'm sure she's paid well for her tireless rants , but I had a car once that ended up "tireless" in the city too ! Talk about a journalist left "up on blocks !"

                  Jake,
                  Would you feel the same about a future president? You need to think this through. Our laws and justice is suppose to be blind. No matter who it is, they should be applied equally.
                  If us is good for Trump now, it may be good for a future Obama or Clinton or any Democrat?

      Jack - The ACLU picks sides too. Not surprised we haven't heard anything out of them.

      I am curious to know what civil liberties have been violated that would warrant the attention of the ACLU?

        I'm sure Sean Hannity and Alex Jones will come up with something.
