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????

The ACLU defended the Nazis' right to march in Skokie, and even defended Rush Limbaugh.
Their sole purpose is to defend the Constitution.

Views of the ACLU founder:

I believe in non-violent methods of struggle as most effective in the long run for building up successful working class power. Where they cannot be followed or where they are not even permitted by the ruling class, obviously only violent tactics remain. I champion civil liberty as the best of the non-violent means of building the power on which workers rule must be based. If I aid the reactionaries to get free speech now and then, if I go outside the class struggle to fight against censorship, it is only because those liberties help to create a more hospitable atmosphere for working class liberties. The class struggle is the central conflict of the world; all others are incidental.

Proletarian Liberty in Practice

When that power of the working class is once achieved, as it has been only in the Soviet Union, I am for maintaining it by any means whatever. Dictatorship is the obvious means in a world of enemies at home and abroad. I dislike it in principle as dangerous to its own objects. But the Soviet Union has already created liberties far greater than exist elsewhere in the world. They are liberties that most closely affect the lives of the people—power in the trade unions, in peasant organizations, in the cultural life of nationalities, freedom of women in public and private life, and a tremendous development of education for adults and children...[58]

The founder of the ACLU sounds like he's quoting the Communist Manifesto.

What scares you is the truth.

They don't seem to feel the same way about freedom of speech as it is currently interpreted. They are highly selective when they feel it doesn't suit their goals.....most notably when it comes to attacks from Gays against conservatives.

What scares you is the truth.

What scares you is free speech being defended.

What scares you is individual liberty being defended.

What scares you is freedom for ALL religions being defended.

What scares you is the Constitution being defended.

So, freedom for ALL religions is threatening a city with a lawsuit if they put up a Nativity scene, or fighting to have a cross removed off land in California that has been there for years...Or is they just defend all OTHER religions but the Christian religion?

They are not defending the Constitution, they are fight AGAINST everything it STANDS FOR.

Separation of Church and State has always been a sore spot for far right whack-a-loons.

The ACLU wants sex offenders near your children [1]
The ACLU has just announced a $335 million fund-raising campaign intended to strengthen its operations in "heartland" states. In most cases, it will publicly attack in court and out, positions on issues such as "immigrants' rights, gay rights, police brutality and opposition to the death penalty." [2]
ACLU and the Federal Government Support Invasion of Illegal aliens in Washington [3]
The ACLU v. Good Judges [4]

Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum believes appointing the right federal and local judges is more important than electing members of Congress or the President. Without solid, constitutionalist judges in place, the ACLU will continue winning cases that encourage the breakdown of traditional values and constitutional rights.

The ACLU is suing to deprive public schools the ability to improve achievement through use of some single-sex classes. Separating boys and girls is known to improve achievement in some circumstances, and is being used by 392 public schools. This lawsuit is in Breckinridge County, Kentucky.[5]

Is the ACLU motivated by the $7.4 million awarded in fees to groups that forced Michigan schools to hold boys and girls sports competitions in the same season? [6]

ACLU Attitudes Infest the Ford Foundation [7]
Cell phone users can now choose a company that will donate some of its profits to liberal causes like the ACLU, Greenpeace, Planned Parenthood, Media Matters for America, Rock the Vote, Center for Constitutional Rights, Human Rights Watch, and GLAAD. [8] [9]
A Massachusetts jury completely acquits a pro-family leader for an alleged assault of an ACLU activist who was a counter-demonstrator at a pro-family rally.[10] Are the homosexual activists losing their grip on Massachusetts?
ACLU Should Get a Clue Human Events [11]
"Is there any organization so consistently anti-American, uncivil, anti-liberty and disunifying?"
Unions Frantic: Will School Choice Referendum Prevail in Utah? Human Events
The National Education Association (NEA), Utah Parent Teacher Association (PTA), the ACLU and the local NAACP chapter are working together to attack school choice.
Here's a switch - Mormon student, Justice, ACLU Join Up. The Justice Department is joining the ACLU in backing a student who lost his state-funded merit-based scholarship because he left college to serve a two-year church mission. LDSLiving
Judge sides with AFL-CIO, ACLU in putting freeze on Department of Homeland Security Plan to Warn Employers About Hiring Illegals. Fox News: [12] and Washington Post [13]
The ACLU demands $2.3 million in fees for challenging a law against illegal immigration. This demand "illustrates the circus the ACLU brought to this case," the Mayor of Hazelton said. "They had 20 attorneys sitting in the courtroom at a time, 16 of them doing nothing but running up the bill." [14]
But things can go wrong for the ACLU, like when one of their own, who happened to be the head of the Virginia chapter, gets caught and arrested, tried and convicted of downloading child pornography...from his 10 year-old son's bedroom computer! [15]
O'Reilly: Ward Churchill's demise. Bill O'Reilly says "the ACLU is exposed as a fraud" and its condemnation of former Harvard President Lawrence Summers is a double standard. Video
US Cities Suing Street Gangs in Latest Tactic to Fight Drugs, Crime. The ACLU objects. Fox News [16]
A Perception Issue? Revolving door between the American Civil Liberties Union and National Public Radio. NewsBusters:[17]



ACLU Wants the US to Lose the War on Terrorism [18] Jpatt

The American Civil Liberties Union lost a lawsuit challenging President Bush's domestic spying program, saying the plaintiffs had no standing to sue. Associated Press​ article at Fox News. [26] Jpatt
Court Ends Bible Distribution in School [27]
Guess who sued for that ruling? The ACLU, of course. Jpatt
The ACLU strikes again: it just persuaded the Ninth Circuit to forbid Congress from transferring a cross to private owners who would preserve it in the Mojave Desert, in Buono v. Kempthorne [28] Is there no end to the hostility to Christianity? Jpatt
ACLU deceit in its "'talking points' in case Uncle Harry asks why the ACLU hates Christmas so much: Tell him 'we work year-round to ensure that everyone in America has the freedom to practice their own religion (or no religion) and to keep the government out of religion.'" [29] In fact, the ACLU destroys "the freedom to" pray in the classroom, and its "keep the government out of religion" means atheism at the expense of overwhelmingly religious taxpayers. Jpatt
The ACLU strikes again! This time it has enlisted the Liberal Courts to have banned the private distribution of Bibles in public school. The federal Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit issued this ruling for the ACLU. Doe v. S. Iron R-1 Sch. Dist., 2007 U.S. App. LEXIS 19818 (8th Cir. Aug. 21, 2007). Jpatt
The Seventh Circuit just ruled against the ACLU by overturning "a lower court's decision that sectarian prayers on the floor of the (Indiana) House violated the constitutional separation of church and state."[30] Jpatt
