The Real Enemy Among Us

Think the ACLU is a good organization, dedicated to protecting America's civil liberties? Perhaps you will find this interesting -- if not alarming.

In 1932, William Foster, the author of "Toward Soviet America," noted:

"Among the elementary measures the American Soviet government will adopt to further the cultural revolution are the following: The schools, colleges and universities will be coordinated and grouped under the National Department of Education and its state and local branches. The studies will be revolutionized, being cleansed of religious, patriotic, and other features of the bourgeoisie middle class) ideology. The students will be taught on the basis of Marxian dialectical materialism, internationalism, and the general ethics of the new socialist society."

Foster was one of the early founders of the ACLU, and head of the Communist Party USA.

Other founders of the ACLU included Norman Thomas, the Socialist Party presidential candidate, who said:

"Americans will never knowingly vote for socialism, but under the guise of liberalism, and the respectability of the Democrat Party, they will adopt every plank of the Socialist Party platform until, one day, America will be socialist without knowing how it all came about."

Joining these two in the founding of the ACLU were Roger Baldwin. In 1935, Baldwin said of the ACLU:

"Communism is the goal."

Also included in this rogue's gallery of ACLU founders were such human gems as Elizabeth Gurley (Flynn), late chairman of the Communist Party, and Agnes Smedley, who was exposed as a Soviet agent.

Whenever you hear of a case against prayer in school, removal of Christian symbol from public places, or the removal of "under God" from our National Anthem, just consider who is behind it.

Wow. I sent them money a long time ago, after I became a Christian, but before I became a conservative. Really, a looong time ago. :)

Ouch. I bet that hurts.
If you read their statement of purpose, though, it sounds like a great organization. They just don't walk their talk!
