Liberal Celebrities Wore Blue Ribbons to the Emmys to Support the ACLU

Last night, Hollywood elites and Trump-haters gathered in Hollywood for the annual Emmy Award show. Like most televised awards show, this was yet another chance for liberals to virtue-signal and bash our president, all to the cheers of their fellow bubble-dwellers. Host Stephen Colbert took ample opportunity to mock Trump:

Hollywood hacks squealing like seals at low-rate Trump jokes is standard fare for the Emmys. There were, however, a few surprises during the night. First was former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer making a brief appearance. Second was the prevalence of a certain blue ribbon.

So why were celebs sporting blue ribbons? Were they all still lamenting Hillary Clinton’s loss?

It turns out the ribbon-wearers were showing support for the American Civil Liberties Union, a liberal civil rights group.  The ACLU has long been a favored partner of liberals, defending the “rights” of illegal immigrants and terrorists.

What’s ironic about this show of support is the ACLU’s stance on a recent event: The white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The ACLU defended the organizer of the rally, Jason Kessler, and paved the way for the protest to take place after the town council initially canceled it by revoking the permit. Had the ACLU not defended Kessler, the rally might not have happened and Heather Heyer may still be alive.

And yet celebrity elitists are celebrating the organization. It’s almost like liberals have short memories and a selective sense of outrage.

Given that last night’s Emmys are on track to be the least-watched ever, it looks like most of America failed to see the sanctimonious stunt. If you ask me, they weren’t missing every much.

  • Heather Heyer would still be alive if she stayed out of the street. The accident was caused by the Antifa Violent protesters that attracted a car that had slowed down for the rioters. The car's driver was afraid for his life and speed away in fear for his life. His car struck another car that had been forced to stop by the same type of rights. That car was pushed into the crowed and she was killed. I don't know if she was with Antifa rioters causing the violence or just there to oppose the unite the right people supporting the arts in the parks. Just like all of the unite the right people were not kkk, all of the counter people were not Antifa!! There were good people on both sides Trump was right to point that out and to call down both sides for the kooks on them.

  • hahahahahaha THAT is hilarious! Did you just poop out that false news out of your butt?

  • Look it up and study it yourself if you are not afraid to do so! No Republican ever owned a slave that was only a Democrat thing. All of the Jim Crow laws were passed and signed into law by Democrats. Voter rights and civil rights laws were only passed because Republicans voted them in. History is clear if you have eyes to see and a brain that can understand!

  • Can we get Generalissimo Kim to program one of his missiles to hone in on Hollywood. Make sure it is after 3 AM so you can get all of them.

  • IN THIS CASE, THE ACLU WAS CORRECT. IT WAS NOT THE STUPID RACISTS WHO CAUSED THE VIOLENCE, IT WAS THOSE SENT THERE BY SOROS,

  • THE LIBS ARE STILL SAD ABOUT KILLARYS LOSS BECAUSE ALL THEY ARE IS CLUELESS CLOD MEMBERS OF THE LOONY, LYING, LEFTEST, CRY-BABY LIBERAL LOSERS LEAGUE.

  • I could not care LESS what liberal Hollywood thinks or says. Good Lord, these people are absolutely friggin' morons and are mentally unstable, as proven by the things they say. Who the hell cares? Most of America does NOT. Besides, who watched whatever it was that was on TV last night? I sure didn't.

  • "What’s ironic about this show of support is the ACLU’s stance on a recent event: *******The white supremacist *****rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

    SAY WHAT?
