The American Civil Liberties Union was run for its first 30 years by an American named Roger Baldwin, who helped found it in 1920. This organization pursues a leftist agenda that includes censoring prayer and recognition of God in public institutions, such as public schools. Currently, Anthony Romero​ is the first openly gay CEO to run the organization. Declassified documents and letters link early ACLU leaders with Communist Party. The ACLU challenges our laws and questions their constitutionality while causing millions in court costs and legal fees every year. Their favorite target is is God. They claim that the establishment clause in US Constitution requires censorship of religious expression. Many former ACLU members are in the Obama Administration's Department of Justice. This explains why the Veterans Administration is forcing the removal of religious services at burials in Texas. The ACLU argued against a law restricting access to pornography at libraries. The ACLU was silent in many cases you'd think they would be involved in including attacks against Joe the Plumber when he exposed Obama as a Socialist and against Carrie Prejean a contestant in the Miss USA pageant who was viciously attacked by a radical gay judge for not being pro-gay named Perez Hilton. Character assassinations from the left soon followed in both cases. The ACLU has defended polygamists, and is the single biggest advocate for pornography and even defended the Man/Boy Love Association. Under threat of being listed by the Dies committee as a Communist front in the wake of the Nazi-Soviet pact, the ACLU purged open members of the Communist Party from its board of directors in 1940. One member purged from the board was former Wobbly Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, a CPUSA member. Flynn went on to become national chairman of the Communist Party. Upon her death in Moscow in 1964, the Soviet Union gave her a state funeral in Red Square. In 1976, the ACLU posthumously "reinstated" her on its board of directors. They are highly active in the war on terror, but on the other side. They have defended defendants in GITMO and are the driving force to bring enemy combatants to the United States for trial and give detainees the same rights as US citizens. So, in your wildest dreams....how in the hell can these assholes call themselves the American Civil Liberties Union????
