Book Review - The ACLU Vs. America: Exposing the Agenda to Redefine Moral Values (Broadman & Holman)
by Gary Schneider...www.therealitycheck.org
The ACLU from its very inception has embraced principles antithetical to the founding tenets
and subsequent prosperity and decency of this nation. The ACLU and their cohorts continue to aggressively
undermine marriage, the family, the protection of children, the value of life, religious liberty and even American sovereignty
itself. To this end they have acquired vast swaths of wealth and have been successful in undermining the will of the people
in furtherance of their leftist anti-American putsch via the exploitation of the court system and their consistently applied
strategy of legal intimidation, misinformation and fear.
“That’s just demagogic hyperbole - Prove it!” you say? OK - but be warned,
the facts that buttress these assertions are not only illuminating, but are often times quite disconcerting.
Alan Sears’ (president, CEO and general
council of the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) – www.telladf.org) and Craig Osten (ADF vice president of presidential communications and research)
have crafted an important new book entitled “The ACLU Vs America: Exposing the Agenda to Redefine Moral Values”
that effectively exposes the extremist agenda of the ACLU, its tactics and ultimately the ongoing threat this organization
and their allies pose to our children, families and to the nation. It is perhaps the first work of its kind to challenge the
ACLU’s design for America in such direct, succinct, organized and empirically supported terms.
Indeed, this is not a ~215 page rant that engages in ad hominem attacks and emotional appeals
to contrive a case against the ACLU, rather – as good lawyers do, the authors build their case using historical facts,
documented statements, positions and court actions of the ACLU to, in effect, use the ACLU’s history and actions against
itself…and the facts are quite incriminating.
From it’s founding in 1920 by Roger Baldwin, a socialist with strong communist leanings,
the ACLU was never a genuine force for American liberty as defined by America’s founding fathers. Baldwin’s
family history and influences engendered a liberal elitist worldview that generally maintains contempt for the common man,
religion and the popular will of the people - A series of traits that permeate the ACLU today. Baldwin’s
family, friends and associates were replete with members of the communist party, ties to the Soviet Union, anarchists and
even eugenicists (Margaret Sanger – founder of Planned Parenthood) who advocate the pursuit of a superior race through
selective breeding and abortion.
You will discover that through decades of honing its skills of intimidation, misinformation
and fear through threats of law suits, duplicitous public relations antics and manufactured legal confrontations, the ACLU
has been successful in establishing an unholy record of legal precedents largely resulting from underfunded or ill-equipped
opposition to their attacks, rather than solid legal argument or Constitutional relevance. These attacks
have, in relative historical terms, only recently been effectively countered by organizations such as the Alliance Defense
Despite more effective countermeasures, the ACLU goose steps on unabated and arrogantly
assumes the dirty banner of protecting pornographers, violent pedophiles and an “anything goes” culture - all
the while telling us its for our own good and synchronously progresses efforts to further erode religious liberty, traditional
values, marriage, parental authority and the value of human life.
Why is this? … To what end?
If you purge God and religion as a self-control mechanism and promote immorality, a need
is created for innumerable new laws and dependence on the state for order. More laws translate to more government control
of its people and the eventual transfer of power to an elitist oligarchy that is accountable to virtually no one.
Unalienable rights, a higher power and morality to which people and governments are accountable, becomes an historic
relic having been displaced by an all powerful state. In other words, you “undo” the uniquely
American tenet, as stated in our Declaration of Independence, that all men “…
are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
--That to secure these rights,
Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed …” and, in so “undoing”, allow for the complete redefinition
of the American governmental paradigm.
As you progress through the book you will quickly and reasonably come to the understanding
that the ACLU considers the U.S. Constitution to be something that must be undone and their relevance to American law and
culture progressively marginalized. If successful in this strategic endeavor, virtually nothing obstructs them from redefining
America as an extremist secular-socialist state through the use of the courts and with activist judges as their accomplices.
The ACLU’s work toward this end is further evidenced by their recent advocacy for the use of international law and precedent
within the American legal system. That is, they desire to engender the formal acceptance of erroneous foreign
case law precedent and jurisprudence for use in American courts as a means to facilitate the erosion and relevance of the
Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Without the Constitution as America’s steadfast legal mooring, activist
judges will be empowered to randomly select and apply foreign case law in American courts that suite their personally held
Perhaps the most essential point, though, that Sears and Osten seek to impart to the reader
is this: The time has arrived when challenges to our way of life must be defended vigorously in order to once again establish
justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings
of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.
There has perhaps been no time in American history when our successful
model of American society and government has been threatened to the degree it is today; And the primary transgressors in this
truth are nefariously embodied in the likes of the ACLU, a highly sympathetic cultural elite and to a degree, the ambivalence
of we - the American people.
Nevertheless, after reading this most critical and timely book, I have a strong sense that
much of this is about to change … and you will too.
