ACLU Honors Khizr Khan: Free Copies Of Constitution To All

Bill O'Reilly is always saying us liberals love free stuff!

So now the ACLU is giving away a pocket booklet of the United States Constitution (fits in YOUR pocket just like Khzir Khan's fits in his).

Go to the ACLU website at this link and use the coupon code POCKETRIGHTS (all caps) and they will send it free of charge.

A great way to support our nation is to have one of those handy when you encounter a Trump supporter.

The ACLU reminds us:

The ACLU is a staunchly non-partisan organization. For 96 years, we have fought to defend the rights enshrined in our Constitution. We have never opposed or supported any candidate for office. And we are not starting now.

Unfortunately, as we approach Election Day, powerful forces are promoting intolerance, inequality, and hate all across America.

Nowhere is that demonstrated more clearly than in some of the rhetoric of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. It has been alarming to witness his campaign laying bare an ugly strain of intolerance and disregard for the fundamental American values of due process, free expression, and equality under the law. He has demonized entire religions, threatened millions of immigrants, and promised to revive some of the darkest periods in our history.

When dangerous political ideas threaten liberty and justice, we have a job to do.
If Donald Trump or anyone else seeks to undermine freedom of the press, shows utter disregard for the separation of powers, or makes a mockery of judicial independence, they better be prepared to take on the ACLU. We don’t tend to sit quietly when politicians undertake an assault on our constitutional rights.

We have no role in determining the outcome of elections. But we do have a very important role to make sure we are ready to launch the most vigorous defense of liberty and rights whenever they are threatened — no matter who spearheads those efforts.
