Title 42, Chapter 21, Subchapter I, Section 1988 is the mother’s milk of the United States Code for the ACLU. It authorizes the payment of attorney’s fees in cases involving civil rights. Sounds harmless enough, right? Sorry, bucko, it turns out that you are paying the ACLU’s invoice every time they launch another lawsuit. Are you happy to pay the ACLU $700,000 to kick the Boy Scouts out of a San Diego park, $500,000 to get those awful ten commandments out of Judge Roy Moore’s courthouse, and millions to prosecute every creche and cross and star of David on public property.
Like just about everyhting else associated with the ACLU, this too is a perversion of law.
