    Oh, yes.

    In the original 1920 steering committee of five, there was one communist, two socialists and three pacifists. In a random selection of eleven additional members, four communists, five radical socialists, two pacifists, two feminists and two social reformers. Over the years it has only become worse.

    Are you aware that many, many people were members of the Communist party at that time including politicians, business leaders, etc?

    It was a new concept and many bought into it.. Communism by it's definition sounds good - in theory.. However, in practice it doesn't work. Most of those members dropped out after several years when they realized that the "top dog" always gets the most meat....

    Yeah and so was the Soviet Union, and Castro's new Cuban government. Communism was a failed government, but did you know the first America was founded by Monarchists? Duh, everyone knows that. And we beat them out of here. So why don't you go and beat ACLU out of here too, besides things change with the times. You are beating a dead horse buddy. Why don't you go complain about the Roman Empire killing Christians, and how Rome was founded by Imperialist Pagans.

    You got the proof so I might as well agree with you. The do use the court to get there way a lot which makes it nearly impossible to change things.

    yes the ACLU was created by Communists and this is why they try to destroy the Boy Scouts of America and stand up for NAMBLA. The ACLU will try and get rid of God and fight tooth and nail for Allah.

    All one has to do is open ones eyes to the ACLU

    its no important.

    we do have an american communist party, by the way. communism is just another political party.

    party affiliation has nothing to do with created organizations. the ACLU is non-partisan. they defend all american rights.

    they have more tolerance for others than I do, I don't know if I'd help a con/rep after they just insulted me.

    Yes, actually I was aware of that, but thank you for bringing it up since very few other people are probably aware of it.
