I am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the
State itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek the
social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class,
and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.
Roger Baldwin, founder of the American Civil Liberties Union.
The American Civil Liberties Union accurately portrays itself as the
"Guardian of the Bill of Rights," and is the foremost defender
of our individual freedoms.
The ACLU's paramount interest is free speech, and it will defend the
right of anyone to speak in public on any topic whatever from any
viewpoint at all. After all, if unpopular speech is censored today,
popular speech will be banned tomorrow.
The ACLU's Number One
We are the American Civil Liberties Union, not the American First
ACLU President Norman Dorsen.
The American Civil Liberties Union has cloaked itself in the red,
white, and blue trappings of the First Amendment for decades. The
general public impression fostered by the group is that its first and
foremost mission is the defense of free speech.
However, the number one priority of the ACLU is certainly not
free speech! Consider the following quote from the pamphlet entitled
"The ACLU's Campaign for Choice;"
The American Civil Liberties Union has made the right to choose its
number one national priority. The ACLU's legal victories helped
establish the right to choose, and we have no intention of seeing that
right weakened or destroyed. We are challenging the Hyde Amendment in
federal court, lobbying for new laws requiring states to pay for
abortions for poor women, and fighting against the call for a
Constitutional convention in every state legislature.
This one paragraph says it all. The ACLU (often called the
"American Child Liquidation Union" by pro-lifers) was one of
the leading forces that enshrined abortion in our culture. It demands
that everyone pay for abortions with their tax dollars and is even
trying to obstruct the wishes of the people by attempting to disable the
processes of the state legislatures in trying to curtail abortion in any
The ACLU's Meddling Zealotry.
The ACLU claims to represent the rights of every group and individual
equally. However, its actions depart dramatically from its rhetoric.
The ACLU instantly leaps to the defense of sodomites, pornographers,
and Nazis, but comes down very hard on Christians, homeschoolers, and
In particular, the ACLU's legal stormtroopers demand that there be no
dignity or status whatever conferred upon preborn children, as
demonstrated by the actions described in the following paragraphs.
8-1/2 Month "Blobs."
A car carrying Janet Johnson, 8-1/2 months pregnant, was struck by a
drunken driver in Minnesota in 1985. Her baby, just days from being
born, was killed. Incredibly, the ACLU took the side of the drunk
driver and argued before the state Supreme Court that the driver was
guilty of no crime, since he didn't injure anyone. The Court agreed, and
the Johnsons couldn't recover a penny of damages.
Interestingly, in June of 1977, the Louisiana chapter of the ACLU
auctioned an abortion for $30, a divorce for $19, and a DUI defense for
No Upper Limits on Abortion.
In 1985, a number of prominent abortion supporters, including Dr.
Philip Stubblefield, past president of the National Abortion Federation,
suggested lowering the upper limit on abortions to 22 weeks for the
purpose of improving their public relations image. But Stubblefield was
shouted down when he formally presented this proposal. Abortion lawyer
Janet Benshoof of the American Civil Liberties Union demanded no upper
gestational age limit, stating as fact that abortion on demand "...
is a precondition for all other legal and constitutional guarantees of
Dead Babies = Trash.
When 16,000 aborted preborn babies were found stuffed into a storage
container behind a California pathologist's house, local pro-lifers
arranged to have a funeral service for them. However, the Federation of
Feminist Women's Health Centers and the ACLU filed suit to stop the
burial, because the ACLU claimed that the babies were only
"unwanted biological tissue," and such burial would, of
course, "violate the separation of Church and State."
Some of the babies were as large as 4 pounds. This incident shows
that pro-abortionists must deny even a decent burial to their victims in
order to make certain that the babies' humanity is concealed from the
Shoot Those Pregnant Women!
In January of 1991, the Utah state legislature passed a law that
merely made it easier for women who had been injured by abortions to
file civil suits against their abortionists. The legislature
specifically wrote into the law that women would be totally free of any
penalties whatsoever for obtaining any abortions legal or illegal.
In response to the passage of this law, the ACLU took out a
hysterical full-page advertisement in the March 25, 1991 New York
Times that was headlined;
THEY KNOW HOW TO PUNISH
A WOMAN WHO HAS AN ABORTION.
THEY SHOOT HER.
This action proved to the satisfaction of most observers the pro-life
allegation that the ACLU does not care about women or the truth. It
wants only to insure the preservation of an absolute right to abortion,
and will resort to any trickery to achieve its objectives.
The ACLU's Official Policy
The ACLU's Policy Guide.
In 1988, the American Civil Liberties Union issued for public
purchase its 576-page official Policy Guide.
Since the positions of the radical Left and the ACLU are virtually
synonymous, a conservative activist need merely glance through this
massive volume to determine exactly where the extreme Left Wing stands
on literally any issue.
The ACLU embraces the complete Neoliberal spectrum. Not a single one
of the more than 300 "Policy Statements" issued in the Policy
Guide is conservative in philosophy. In summary, the ACLU demands;
• legalization of abortion to the day of
birth, with no parental interference, and
complete state funding for the indigent;
• legalization of all drugs, including marijuana and the
"hard" drugs, like 'crack'
• legalization of all sexual perversions, including sodomy,
• legalization of all pornography, including "kiddie
• legalization of all prostitution, even homosexual and child
• immediate passage of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).
Figure 37-1 is a summary of just a few of the more than 300 major
points outlined in the ACLU's Policy Guide.
OFFICIAL POLICIES OF THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION
Official Statement of Policy
4: The ACLU supports the legalization of all
pornography, including "kiddie porn."
18: The ACLU supports ending the private
rating system of movies.
47: Despite the very clear language of the
Second Amendment, the ACLU claims, in its best blind fashion, that
"the possession of weapons by individuals is not Constitutionally
62: The ACLU demands that parents should have
no role whatever in their children's education. This means that parents
would be legally liable to sanctionsfor even attempting to take some
control over how their children are educated. The ACLU, of course,
virulently opposes all home schooling.
75: The ACLU opposes the school tuition
voucher system, because it takes too much control away from the
Humanistic school system and puts it in the hands of parents.
76: The ACLU denies that school officials may
search school lockers for drugs, even for probable cause.
78: The ACLU states school libraries may give
any material to children, including hard-core pornography. Parents
should have no input on this matter.
81: The ACLU supports a total ban on Nativity
scene displays on public property, but supports the display of Menorahs.
84: The ACLU demands that the words
"under God" be removed from Pledge of Allegiance.
88: The ACLU demands that the military
chaplain system be scrapped.
92: The ACLU urges an end to all church tax

306: The ACLU supports Equal Opportunity
"numerical remedies" (i.e., enforced quotas).
314: The ACLU endorses the Equal Rights

The Inescapable Conclusion.
Note very carefully that every one of the ACLU Policies is
designed to weaken the fabric of our society. The aggregate effect of
all of the ACLU Policies would give the individual unlimited power to do
anything he or she wanted in other words, unlimited freedom for all
people to abuse or dominate those weaker than themselves. And this, of
course, leads to anarchy and destruction of the society.
The ACLU's founder, Roger Baldwin, stated that "I am for
socialism, disarmament, and ultimately for abolishing the State itself
as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek the social ownership
of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and sole control of
those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal."
The ACLU is fulfilling its founder's stated mission admirably.
It is no coincidence that the ACLU has simply elaborated on Lenin's
famed "Ten Rules for Revolution." Its official policies are
merely a detailed action guide based upon Lenin's teachings.
What the ACLU really wants, or course, is the 'individuation'
of religion, where people may hold personal religious viewpoints and
stay at home or in their churches and pray, but are prohibited, both
legally and societally, from joining with others in attempts to make
those viewpoints public policy.
For a revealing examination of the parallels between the goals of the
ACLU and of Communism, read Chapter 95 in Volume III, "Lenin's
Rules for Revolution."
The ACLU's Ultimate Weapon.
America needs a civil liberties union. It no longer has one. I still
make my contribution because the ACLU still does some good, but if
things don't change, it could become an enemy of free speech.
25-year ACLU member Professor Alan Dershowitz.
No Consistency Here!
The Neoliberals have found a very powerful and faithful ally in the
nation's court system. Since the public at large resists the Neoliberal
agenda, and the state legislatures usually can't be depended upon to
implement it to an effective degree, the ACLU uses the court system to
force its radical worldview on all of us. The classic example, of
course, is abortion. But the ACLU is also diligently pushing homosexual
"rights," euthanasia, and a host of other extreme views upon
society through the courts.
The favorite tactic of the ACLU is to file lawsuits against anyone or
any organization that does not bow and scrape to their atheistic views.
Not surprisingly, the ACLU will go to any extremes to achieve its
This naturally leads to glaring philosophical inconsistencies, as
outlined in the following paragraphs.
The Walter Polovchak Case.
The American Civil Liberties Union is the most inconsistent gang of
cutthroats imaginable. Just ask Walter Polovchak.
Walter was a Russian boy who had lived in the United States for
several years and did not want to be forced to return to the Soviet
Union. He pleaded with a Federal court to allow him to stay in this
country until he was 18 years old and could make his own decision
regarding this matter. The boy obviously knew all too well that he was
facing a one-way trip to a vast prison whose gate only swings one way.
The ACLU immediately jumped into the fray and attacked the boy's
position in court, stating that "a minor child of tender years does
not have the right to control his own destiny." The ACLU poured
hundreds of thousands of dollars into the effort to pry the boy away
from the United States, but, just as it was about to succeed, Polovchak
turned 18, and stayed in the U.S. much to the chagrin of the ACLU.
Why does this case demonstrate inconsistency? Because the ACLU
stridently opposes any and all parental consent laws for abortion on the
ground that even ten-year old girls "... are mature enough to
control their own reproductive destinies."
Henry Polovchak's attorney, Henry Mark Holzer, summed up the
situation when he claimed that
It still strikes me as strange. The ACLU has a children's rights
project. Their attorneys argue that teenage girls are competent to
have an abortion without parental consent, but a teenage boy can't
choose the United States over a totalitarian state. The only answer
that makes sense is that their decisions aren't based on civil
liberties but liberal politics. The ACLU likes abortion, and it likes
the Soviet Union.
The Rescuers and the Black Man.
The ACLU is at its inconsistent worst when it responds to injustice
heaped upon individuals. The organization's reaction is based solely
upon the political correctness of the victim's views.
Perhaps the most glaring example of this inconsistency was recently
provided by the Los Angeles ACLU. The organization was totally silent
while scores of pro-life rescuers were beaten and injured by Los Angeles
police, but it exploded in outrage when the same type of treatment was
administered to a single Black man by the same police department.
On March 25, 1989, pro-life rescuers were bound and lifted by Los
Angeles police, who jammed their fingers up rescuers' nostrils and into
their eye sockets. The pro-lifers were dragged by their hair and ears,
and mounted police horses "accidentally" and repeatedly
stepped on them. Police stood on rescuers' backs and repeatedly slammed
their faces into the concrete pavement. At least seven people suffered
severe injuries, including broken bones.
Police sexually molested numerous women and strip-searched them in a
mocking, exaggerated, and sexually explicit manner. One wave of police
would move in and savagely beat rescuers, and retreat, then a second
wave would go in and make arrests.
A total of 600 injuries were reported out of a total of 1,100 arrests
in two days.
The response of the Los Angeles ACLU? Dead silence, despite the
organization being provided with evidence of police brutality by
By comparison, the ACLU went positively ballistic when a single Black
man was beaten by the same Los Angeles cops after being stopped for
speeding on March 3, 1991. The organization took out a full-page,
$35,000 ad in the March 12 Los Angeles Times showing a
brutal-looking policeman wielding a baton with the headline, "WHO
DO YOU CALL WHEN THE GANG WEARS BLUE UNIFORMS?" Below was a demand
for the immediate resignation of Police Chief Daryl Gates.
One would think that an organization that claims to be a champion of
a neutral right such as the right not to be beaten up by cops for a
minor infraction would be equally concerned regardless of the skin color
or belief system of the victim. This would be a consistent position. But
the glaring inconsistencies in ACLU response show it to be yet another
garden-variety left-wing pressure group, whose degree of response to
injustice is based solely upon the political correctness of the victims.
Print This Or Else!
The ACLU not only wants pro-lifers to shut up, they want pro-lifers
to approve of the abortionists, baby-killing. This is central to the
anti-life mentality: it is not enough to reduce your opponent to sullen,
glowering disapproval he must enthusiastically applaud your immoral
In early 1990, a Vermont Catholic couple who ran a private printing
press, Regal Art Press, refused to print membership forms for the state
chapter of 'Catholics' for a Free Choice (CFFC). Chuck and Susan Baker
said that they refused because CFFC consistently lies about Catholic
teachings on abortion.
Linda Paquette, a member of Vermont CFFC (VCFC), sniveled that she
was "bewildered" by the Bakers' refusal, since VCFC
"promotes freedom of conscience" and
Paquette could easily have taken her business to any other printer,
but she had to punish the Bakers because they were pro-life.
Hypocritically ignoring the Bakers' "freedom of conscience,"
Paquette, showing a complete lack of "tolerance," complained
to the Vermont Human Rights Commission, which threatened the Bakers with
a $10,000 fine and a lawsuit for compensatory and punitive damages.
The charge? "Religious discrimination!" The Commission
Investigative Report of July 11, 1990 found that businesses "...
cannot deny services to individuals based on religious doctrine ... even
if the result has the effect of curtailing the ... free exercise of the
owner's religious beliefs."
Perhaps most incredibly, the Vermont chapter of the American Civil
Liberties Union agreed to prosecute the Bakers for exercising their
'freedom to choose!'
Note that this couple run a private printing press. They
receive no government money, and are not a tax-deductible charity. In
other words, they are a private small business but they are being forced
to print material that violates their religious beliefs!
This idiocy leads one to speculate as to what action the American
Civil Liberties Union would take if a Jewish printer refused to print
flyers for the White Aryan Resistance or for any other overtly racist
The answer to this question should be obvious.
John Birchers Under Pressure.
As a final example of inconsistency, the ACLU brought suit in the
mid-1960s to have the membership lists of the John Birch Society made
public, because, as it claimed, "the public has a right to
know." Yet the ACLU has repeatedly refused to disclose its own
250,000-member list, claiming that its people had the right to be
preserved from prying eyes. This is yet another example of the liberal
Let 'Em Flunk.
Any ACLU staffer will tell you that he supports the rights of
But apparently the ACLU doesn't believe its own rhetoric when it
comes to helping out minorities who just need a little boost to make it
in society on their own terms.
In Detroit, the dropout rate for inner-city Black boys was 54
percent, and the rate for Black girls was less than half that.
Therefore, Detroit's board of education set up three special schools for
ghetto boys to help equip them with the tools and social skills
necessary to get out of their situation and better their lives.
But the Neoliberals apparently didn't like that idea. The National
Organization for Women (NOW) and the American Civil Liberties Union
immediately sued and won an injunction against the program in Federal
Court, and the City of Detroit, unwilling to spend more than a million
dollars in its own defense, closed down the schools.
The NOW and ACLU never once set foot in the afflicted
neighborhoods to talk with the parents of the boys who would have
benefitted from the program or to see what the disastrous results of
their social tinkering were. After the judge handed down his decision,
300 parents protested outside the courthouse. One mother said, "If
you have money you can go to whatever kind of school you want. But the
average Black guy can't go to special schools."
Other ACLU Silliness.
One would think that the ACLU would have better things to do with its
time than try to stamp out every vestige of religion in the public
arena. After all, it was believers that made this country great not a
motley gaggle of sex perverts, pornographers, abortionists, and flag
They Will Overcome.
The ACLU filed suit against Bernalillo County, New Mexico, to have
the cross and Spanish words Con Esta Vencemos ("With this we
overcome") removed from the county seal. It said that these items,
used continuously by the county since 1925, "promote
No Bible Clubs Period!
In late 1989, the United States Supreme Court upheld the Equal Access
Act of 1984, which held that Bible clubs and other religious clubs had
to be admitted to schools as extracurricular activities under the same
rules as other clubs.
Despite this final and decisive ruling by the highest court in the
land, Ed Doerr of Americans for Religious Liberty urged the ACLU to
intimidate schools into locking out Bible clubs by threatening them with
After failing by ballot measure three times, and by legislative
action twice, homosexuals in the state of Oregon finally managed to
convince their pro-homosexual governor, Neil Goldschmidt, to sign an
Executive Order banning job discrimination by the state based on sexual
orientation. This bypass procedure forced the views of one man on
the entire state. Such blatant disregard for the wishes of the people
and the elected legislature spurred the Oregon Citizens Alliance to
place on the ballot a measure that would repeal the Order.
The ballot measure passed, and the ACLU immediately challenged it in
court. In early 1993, the wishes of the people of Oregon were deemed
inferior to those of the ACLU, and the results of the referendum were
This demonstrates conclusively that the ACLU couldn't care less about
the will of the people and that they scoff at the mechanisms of
government that allow the people to have a voice.
The ACLU has proven again and again that it is not only pro-abortion,
but very much pro-active euthanasia as well. For example, the
ACLU's Colorado Branch intervened in the case of 34-year old
quadriplegic Hector Rodas, saying that "... he has the right to
receive medicine and medicinal agents that would result in his
comfortable and dignified death." In plain English, the ACLU
wanted him to die by lethal injection.
The ACLU vs. Parents. Ohio's state House and Senate overwhelmingly
passed a parental consent law that was approved by 76 percent of the
state's residents. But the ACLU brought suit on behalf of two
(naturally) anonymous teenaged girls, and Federal judge Ann Aldrich
threw out the new law. This court action demonstrates yet again that
the ACLU has nothing but utter contempt for the will of the people, and
will trample such will blindly in its rush towards its own vision of a
perfect society. The ACLU's warped vision of a perfect, Godless society
is all that is important to it.
The ACLU Even Opposes Chastity!
In reaction to a California sex education program that emphasizes
chastity, the ACLU's California Legislative Office sent a letter to
state legislators that stated, in part; "It is our position that
teaching that monogamous, heterosexual intercourse within marriage as a
traditional American value is an unconstitutional establishment of a
religious doctrine in public schools."
Whenever state governments fund chastity programs, the ACLU
immediately sues to have the program thrown out, since teaching chastity
is "a violation of the separation of church and state." It
never seems to occur to the ACLU that teaching comprehensive sex
education, establishing school-based clinics, and passing out condoms in
high schools also violates the separation of church and state the
'church' in such cases being the self-professed 'religion' of Secular
Watch Out, Singles!
When the State of Louisiana passed a law that forbade deliberately
exposing others to the HIV virus, the ACLU challenged the law on the
grounds that it violated the Constitution's Equal Protection Clause.
It apparently does not matter at all to the ACLU that literally
hundreds of wives and their children have been killed by bisexual or
homosexual husbands who have concealed their HIV status. All that is
important to the organization is the safeguarding of an absolute 'right
to privacy,' which is essential if perverted and anti-life activities
such as homosexuality, pornography, abortion and euthanasia are to
Figure This One Out.
The ACLU wants to make sure that it wipes out any trace of religion
even if it is the kind that 99.9 percent of the public never sees.
Three miles off the coast of Florida is a submerged statue named the
Christ of the Deep, placed in remembrance of those lost at sea. Since
the statue is technically within the coastal waters of the United States
(and therefore is, by definition, located on Federal property), the
Florida ACLU argued that it represents a violation of the separation of
Church and State.
What this means is that the ACLU will defend the right of a so-called
'artist' to submerge a picture of a Crucifix in his own urine but when
private people sink a statue of Christ in ocean water, the ACLU goes
ACLU: Gestapo in Pinstripes.
The ACLU commonly goes to extreme lengths to smear and discredit any
opponent that effectively challenges it. In fact, some of the
organization's tactics are frighteningly reminiscent of the Secret
Police that operated behind the Iron Curtain.
Just ask Congressmen Henry J. Hyde about his experience.
After Hyde introduced the amendment that would ban Federal funding of
abortions, ACLU agents tailed him constantly for a period of several
months. In support of ACLU challenges to the Hyde Amendment, these spies
gathered evidence and took pictures showing Hyde attending Catholic
Masses, reading Bible passages from the lectern, and even receiving
The ACLU demanded to read the mail that Hyde received. Although he
was in no way required to agree to such a blatant invasion of his
privacy, he agreed. ACLU staffers then constructed a large wall chart
and checked off the number of times such "offensive passages"
as "God bless you" and "Our Lord Jesus Christ" were
included in the letters to Hyde.
The ACLU spies accumulated a large pile of evidence and wrote in a
voluminous report that Hyde listened to one priest claim during a sermon
that "pregnant women and children" bore "gifts of
life." The report also stated that he "prayed
All of this 'evidence' was used by the ACLU in its attempt to
demonstrate that Hyde's beliefs were destroying his effectiveness as a
United States Congressman.
On the basis of this "evidence," the ACLU filed suit in
Federal court alleging that Hyde was a (gasp!) "practicing
Catholic" and was, through his Amendment, "... using the fist
of government to smash the wall of separation between church and state
by imposing a peculiarly religious view of when life begins."
The ACLU squawked in its pamphlet "The ACLU's Campaign for
Choice," that "The Hyde Amendment forces one religious view of
the beginning of life on poor women, a violation of the separation of
church and state."
Naturally, the ACLU was oblivious to the fact that "a peculiarly
religious view of when life begins" has already been imposed
on this country the mistaken view that life begins at birth.
The ACLU's persecution of Congressman Hyde brings to mind the old
question, "If you went on trial tomorrow for being a Christian,
would there be enough evidence to convict you?"
The ACLU found Hyde guilty as charged.
Naturally, if anyone dared to tail and harass a Neoliberal hero, like
Edward Kennedy or Henry Waxman, the ACLU would go into a legal frenzy
and denounce such tactics as "Fascism,"
"McCarthyism," and "Nazism."
It is also interesting to speculate about the Neoliberal reaction
should a conservative organization begin harassing a liberal Jewish
congressman (like sodomite Barney Frank) in a similar manner.
