The ACLU is an Equal Opportunity Ticker Offer

It always cracks me up to hear pigeon hole the ACLU as some sort of liberal activist group.  I guess they are if "liberal" means defending all peoples' civil liberties no matter which end of the political spectrum they fall on.  Sure, conservatives are ticked about the whole Forsyth County Commissioners' prayer issue, but I suspect they'd support the ACLU in their defense of a Florida student who wants to wear a t-shirt that says "Islam is of the devil." 

For the record I sometimes disagree strongly with the ACLU, but I do think they're very consistent.
