Ah, the - "American Communist Liberties Union". Does this sound familiar to what is happening today in our America? An excerpt is below the link - Dead Republican Presidents: ACLU and Communism Roger Baldwin, the first director of the ACLU, was a communist. He explains in his book, Liberty Under the Soviets, I joined. I dont regret being a part of the Communist tactic, which increased the effectiveness of a good cause. I knew what I was doing. I was not an innocent liberal. I wanted what the Communists wanted William Z. Foster, then National Chairman of the Communist Party USA and an ACLU co-founder, is famous for this 1932 quote: The establishment of an American Soviet government will involve the confiscation of large landed estates in town and country, and also, the whole body to forests, mineral deposits, lakes, rivers and so on. He was the author of "Toward Soviet America".
