The ACLU was ALWAYS a communist tool.
I just want to throw up. What has happened to the ACLU?
Yup, they are a bunch of tools.
You are absolutely correct. Crystal Eastman was a co-founder of the ACLU and an avowed communist. Her brother Max Eastman went to the Soviet Union, was a writer and an activist for the communist cause in America (and later saw the error of his ways and spent the last 25 years writing about the failure of communism).
Roger Baldwin, the other co-founder of the ACLU, was also a communist.
My favorite quote on this comes from an ACLU website where it claims that Baldwin's communist activities "made him something of a lightning rod for those who painted the ACLU with a red brush." ... Well, duh!
The ACLU are a bunch of fascists.
