All the complaining about the ACLU, yet isn't 'liberty and justice for all' part of the Pledge of Allegience?
The ACLU supported US citizens persecuted by their own government because they were communist or socialist. It's helped stop attacks on the rights of trade unions to meet.
It supports the separation of Church and State, as outlined in the Constitution. It supports freedom of speech, as outlined in the Constitution. It supports abortion and contraception, both of which are supported by the majority of Americans, both of which are fully legal. It supports the rights of homosexuals, again supported by the majority of Americans and the law.
The ACLU played a part in Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka, which essentially led to the end of segregation in schools. It was involved with Roe vs. Wade and Doe vs. Bolton.
It's fought the teaching of creationism as a scientific alternative to evolution. It's fought to bar the NSA from eavesdropping and data mining - it helps stop your
government from spying on you
, illegally, for whatever reason.
So I don't quite understand all this bitching about the ACLU. Everything it does is supported by the Constitution, a Constituion the right wing brings up time and time again regarding guns, but seldom brings up at other points.

At the end of the day Six Flags is a private company and they can implement whatever the hell hair policy they want.
Being a private company doesn't exempt it from the law.
