Investigating the ACLU’s Defending of Terrorists

WASHINGTON, Feb. 15 –/MNA PRESS/ — Today CRAVE announced it is calling for immediate Congressional hearings to expose the anti—religious agenda of the ACLU. The ACLU was last investigated by a Special Committee of Congress in 1931.

Roger Baldwin, the founder of the ACLU, once said, “The courts are the vehicles we use to assert our interpretation of the Constitution.” Going to court has been the
ACLU’s method of operation for several years. In fact, the ACLU has been involved in far more Supreme Court cases than any other law firm in America.

Many people know the ACLU as the group which attacked the public displays of the Ten Commandments all over America. While the ACLU describes itself as a defender of “freedom” its actions indicate they want to stamp out freedom and our religious liberty all over America.

“These hearings are important to restore our American history and protect the traditional values of America,” said Don Swarthout, President, Christians Reviving America’s Values, AKA CRAVE. “We wish these Congressional Hearings were not necessary, but average people are unaware of the ACLU’s efforts to change our American principles. Our intent is to expose the ACLU and the very real threat they pose to our true freedom.”

According to news accounts, the ACLU supports giving 12 year old girls sexual consent rights, legalized prostitution, polygamy, child pornography, same sex marriage and abortion. Meanwhile, the ACLU defends NAMBLA. The North American Man Boy Love Association is an organization which advocates the seduction of young boys by grown men. The ACLU has defended them in court.

“The ACLU defends some extremely radical positions which are against the principles of most Americans. This investigation is all about exposing the ACLU and making their real agenda known to the American public,” said Swarthout.

“CRAVE has written to every Senator in America. It is time to find out where they stand and what action they will actually take,” said Don Swarthout. Bill O’Reilly of Fox News has said numerous times, ‘The ACLU is the most dangerous group in America.” Swarthout added, “I agree with Bill O’Reilly and believe it is time to expose the ACLU’s true agenda. We represent hundreds of thousands of people and they are very tired of the way these things are going.”

While CRAVE is concerned over the ACLU’s hostility towards religious liberty, which is most definitely a major concern to many Americans, there are plenty of other reasons that an investigation into the ACLU should be done. My pet peeve is their attacks on National Security.
There are many things that would be wise to investigate about the ACLU. Does their money go to any terrorist organizations directly or indirectly?

In October of 2004, the ACLU turned down $1.15 million in funding from two of it’s most generous and loyal contributors, the Ford and Rockefeller foundations, saying new anti-terrorism restrictions demanded by the institutions make it unable to accept their funds. “The Ford Foundation now bars recipients of its funds from engaging in any activity that “promotes violence, terrorism, bigotry, or the destruction of any state.” The Rockefeller Foundation’s provisions state that recipients of its funds may not “directly or indirectly engage in, promote, or support other organizations or individuals who engage in or promote terrorist activity.”

They fought this provision tooth and nail until they got the rule scrapped. They are now defending an individual that participated in a 15-year conspiracy to finance the group Hamas, laundering millions of dollars, some of which went to buy weapons. They are also defending an admitted agent of Al Qaeda that has confessed to attending jihad camps in Afghanistan, and is being charged with lying to the FBI about his terror ties and activities.

They fighting every government effort at National Defense such as the NSA Surveillance program, TSA Security measures, Subway searches, and the Patriot Act.

There is division within the ACLU over dissent concerns. There have been heated boardroom exchanges and an unusual number of resignations from the board. Dissidents say Mr. Romero is ignoring the A.C.L.U.’s traditions, of encouraging dissent; threatening its core principles, like free speech, and too often acting without the full knowledge and support of the board, which is supposed to guide him.

The hypocrisy of the ACLU over privacy issues is amazing. They are fighting the NSA efforts to wiretap conversations with suspected terrorists in international phone calls, all the while they are spying on their own members. So who is really spying on innocent Americans.

The American Civil Liberties Union is using sophisticated technology to collect a wide variety of information about its members and donors in a fund-raising effort that has ignited a bitter debate over its leaders’ commitment to privacy rights.

Some board members say the extensive data collection makes a mockery of the organization’s frequent criticism of banks, corporations and government agencies for their practice of accumulating data on people for marketing and other purposes.

Indeed, quite unethical and very hypocritical for such an esteemed organization. The FBI have their concerns over the ACLU. Between the shady business of their funding issues, helping America’s enemies, spying on their own members, and FBI concerns; there is no wonder why had their document shredding going on.

The American Civil Liberties Union has been shredding some documents over the repeated objections of its records manager and in conflict with its longstanding policies on the preservation and disposal of records.

The matter has fueled a dispute at the organization over internal operations, one of several such debates over the last couple of years, and has reignited questions over whether the A.C.L.U.’s own practices are consistent with its public positions.

The organization has generally advocated for strong policies on record retention and benefited from them, most recently obtaining and publicizing documents from the government about prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The debate over the use of shredders is reminiscent of one late last year over the organization’s efforts to collect a wide variety of data on its donors, even as it criticizes corporations and government agencies for accumulating personal data as a violation of privac
y rights.

There is more than enough shady business going on with at the ACLU to call for an investigation.

I am calling on Alberto Gonzales, Attorney General of the United States of America, to call a Special Counsel to investigate possible criminal wrongdoing and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law those responsible within the ACLU for any damage to top secret programs that have been enacted in furtherance of National Security and the war on terror; any funding directly or indirectly aiding a terrorist organization; giving representation, aid and comfort to admitted terrorists; invading the privacy of their own members; hindering the ability of the government to protect the citizens of the Untied States of America; and any attempt to destroy evidence of any of these acts.

If you are concerned over the ACLU, whether it be your religious liberty being attacked, or your National Security…join me, contact the Attorney General.

Correspondence to the Department, including the Attorney General, may be sent to:

E-mails to the Department of Justice, including the Attorney General, may be sent to

Office of the Attorney General – 202-353-1555

Hey, if the ACLU can call for Special Counsel why can’t I?
