The ACLU – Founded Upon a Goal of Communism for America

“I am for socialism, disarmament, and ultimately, for abolishing the state itself as an instrument of violence and compulsion. I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the properties class, and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal. It all sums up into one single purpose — the abolition of dog-eat-dog under which we live. I don’t regret being part of the communist tactic. I knew what I was doing. I was not an innocent liberal. I wanted what the communists wanted and I traveled the United Front road to get it.” –ACLU Founder, Robert Baldwin

I have seen a lot of comments from Modern Liberals, Leftists, so-called “progressives” and Democrat-voters on blogs wondering why Conservatives do not like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Well, the next time they ask, just send them this information about the founding of the ACLU and its goals for America.

Here is the profile of American Civil Liberties Union founder, Robert Baldwin, via Discover the Networks: Discover the Networks: Robert Baldwin


As World War I progressed, Baldwin co-founded the American Union Against Militarism (AUAM), again with the aim of promoting a pacifist, internationalist agenda. In 1920 he joined with several of his colleagues in the American Left to establish the ACLU. Baldwin was named the organization’s first Executive Director, a position he would hold until 1950.

The ACLU soon became enmeshed in a variety of high-profile causes; the Scopes Trial; the Sacco and Vanzetti case, which has long been a cause celebre of the Left; and the publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses.

Baldwin showed much sympathy to the Soviet economic system in his statement in his Harvard classbook, and in the foreword he wrote to Letters from Russian Prisons (1924). He embraced the view that the Russia of his day was “a great laboratory of social experimentation of incalculable value to the development of the world.”

In the 1930s Baldwin and the ACLU became linked to the Popular Front movement, which was engendered by Stalin to strengthen the Communist Party by allowing it to make common cause with socialists and other leftist groups. Baldwin himself made two trips to the Soviet Union, and in 1928 published a book entitled Liberty Under the Soviets, which contained effusive praise for the USSR.

In 1934 Baldwin authored a piece titled Freedom in the USA and the USSR.” He wrote: “The class struggle is the central conflict of the world; all others are incidental. 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. … [There] I saw … fresh, vigorous expressions of free living by workers and peasants all over the land. And further, no champion of a socialist society could fail to see that some suppression was necessary to achieve it. It could not all be done by persuasion. … [I]f American champions of civil liberty could all think in terms of economic freedom as the goal of their labors, they too would accept ‘workers’ democracy’ as far superior to what the capitalist world offers to any but a small minority. Yes, and they would accept — regretfully, of course — the necessity of dictatorship while the job of reorganizing society on a socialist basis is being done.”

Keep this in mind with regards to the catastrophic “man-caused global warming” debate. These activists have first tried to use junk science to pursuade people to accept Socialism/Communism being passed off as “global climate change” prevention. Since most people are not idiots, just simply ignorant, the more people have studied the “global warming” facts, the less people are falling for the sham. Because of that, the activists are now looking to shut down debate and force Socialism/Communism on the country. Just as Robert Baldwin said was the plan.

Be aware of this and make no mistake about it: the Democrats and the Left are Socialists/Communists and their goal for America is Communism. Since they cannot pursuade people to accept socialism/Communism, they are going to work to force it on us. The first step to doing that is shutting down debate and censoring opposing viewpoints. Don Imus situation starting to make sense to you now? Fairness Doctrine?

Pay attention, for if we do not, little by little more socialism will be implemented in this country until we have become a Communist country… just as the Communists planned.
