Newsletter #174 – Tennessee ACLU: The Left’s Biggest Hypocrite (part 1 of 5)Posted: July 7, 2015
“The Bill of Rights contains no grant of privilege for a group of people to destroy the Bill of Rights.” Eisenhower on Communism, October 1952.
The TN ACLU would like you to believe that it fights equally for everyone’s religious freedoms, civil liberties and Constitutional rights. It doesn’t.
The ACLU would like you to believe that it’s work promotes the ideals of democracy and social justice. It doesn’t do that either.
The ACLU would like you to believe that it is nonpartisan and advocates for individual rights. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
The ACLU’s work is about moving its socialist and communist DNA into the mainstream. It’s about the red-green alliance (the professional leftists and the Islamists), sharing a mutual goal of undermining the Judeo-Christian foundation of Western civilization. It’s about rejecting the individual initiative that drives capitalism in favor of collectivist redistribution of resources. It’s about partnering with groups willing to abuse and disassemble our Constitutional liberties to advance the leftist agenda. It’s about disenfranchising “the Establishment.”
It’s about socially advantaged elites showing solidarity with the “underprivileged” – that is, until they retire at the end of the day and drive their pricey hybrid cars to their children’s private school, then on to their expensive homes in privileged neighborhoods.
Socialists + Communists = ACLU
The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), was co-founded by Norman Thomas, William Foster and Roger Baldwin. These fathers of the new left, defining themselves as the “counterculture,” came to power in the 1960’s.
These men from Chicago came out of the Midwest labor movement – they were the progressives. They wanted to help the oppressed workers raise economic standards and working conditions.
Norman Thomas, a Presbyterian minister, was a six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party. He said,
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened.”
William Foster, a Marxist, was the National Chairman of the Communist Party USA from 1945 to 1957. He said,
“The establishment of an American Soviet government will involve the confiscation of large landed estates in town and country, and also, the whole body of forests, mineral deposits, lakes, rivers and so on.”
Roger Baldwin was an admirer of Stalin’s government. He said:
“I joined. I don’t 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.”
Baldwin accepted dictatorship and suppression of rights were necessary to achieve socialism.
These men formed an organization intended to destroy our country, and created an Orewellian vocabulary to subvert mainstream American thought.
“Multiculturalism,” “human rights,” “tolerance” and “social justice” is the jargon of the ACLU’s leftist ideology. They fuel their moral narcissism on the backs of the underdog and use minority rights as an excuse to substitute a socialist solution which has been proven time and time again that it doesn’t work. The ideology is a master-slave relationship to keep the minority disenfranchised and emphasizes materialism as the answer to all our problems.
The ACLU and their fellow Alinsky travelers (discussed in later parts), have perfected the art of liberal bullying along with a proficiency in name-calling, propaganda and fact distortion to achieve their ultimate Communist goals.
