Many accept the ACLU as mainstream, but history paints a radically different picture. Alliance Defense Fund is dedicated to exposing the myth ACLU works diligently for First Amendment rights. Since its establishment, ACLU has devoted itself to divesting America’s most cherished traditions, values, and laws.

Since its 1920 founding by Roger Baldwin and Crystal Eastman, ACLU has had strong socialist/communist ties. In 1931, Congress was alarmed by ACLU’s devotion to communism. A report by the Special House Committee to Investigate Communist Activities stated, “The American Civil Liberties Union is closely affiliated with the communist movement in the United States, and fully 90 percent of its efforts are on behalf of communists who have come into conflict with the law. It claims to stand for free speech, free press and free assembly, but it is quite apparent that the main function of the ACLU is an attempt to protect the communists.”

Baldwin openly sought absolute destruction of American society. Fifteen years after founding the ACLU, Baldwin wrote: “I am for Socialism, disarmament and ultimately, for the abolishing of the State itself … 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.”

Anarchist Emma Goldman “Red Emma” was eventually deported to the Soviet Union in 1919 for communist activities. Eastman held the highest regard for Emma and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. Eastman quote, “We feminists must all be followers of Margaret Sanger.” Eastman greatly admired the Soviet revolution.

Sanger was a passionate advocate of eugenics – an attempt to improve the human race through selective breeding. Abortion was the primary means of “improvement,” leading Sanger to write, “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Another Sanger quote about Negros and immigrants: “They are…human weeds, reckless breeders spawning human beings who never should have been born.”

At the first World Population Conference in Geneva in 1926. Sanger worked behind the scenes initiating the “Negro Project.” The “project” objective was to infiltrate black communities by presenting birth control as a health option for women to kill off the black race. Kill them off by limiting the growth of the population by abortion and sterilization. 

Earl Browder, general secretary of the United States Communist Party, 1934-1945, admitted the ACLU served as a “transmission belt” for the party. Baldwin agreed, claiming, “I don’t regret being a part of the communist tactic which increased the effectiveness of a good cause.”

The ACLU planted the seed of wokeness that we see in full bloom today being harvested by liberals. It is being cultivated at most public schools and universities, where students are indoctrinated instead of educated.
