At Least Some People Get It...

Cross-posted from Stop The ACLU
Pittsburgh Pennsylvania is a heavy Union town. There in turn, a heavily "blue" area of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania which is a "blue state" traditionally. I say "blue state" with tongue in cheek because they have 2 Republican Senators. The unpredictable Arlen Specter and the very Conservative Rick Santorum.
Rick Santorum is up for re-election in the mid-term and as a nation we cannot afford to lose such a active voice in the Senate.
I found this through a Google Alerts search done using ACLU as the keyword. It is from the opinion page of the Pittsburgh Times-Review. It must be a letters to the editor type of thing.
ACLU prayer rugs Sunday, June 19, 2005
Has anyone wondered why the ACLU has not filed a suit to stop the government from paying for Qurans and prayer rugs for Muslim prisoners at Guantanamo Bay? If the government were paying for Bibles and rosary beads, the ACLU would be raising hell. I think this demonstrates that the ACLU is not really concerned about the separation of church and state (in this case, mosque and state). It is concerned only about the influence of Christianity, because it knows Christianity stands in the way of its real goal, the same goal of other leftists, which is the supremacy of the state.

We all know that this is exactly what is going on. We have been focused on this since the founding of the Coalition and this blog.
Supremacy of the state being the goal of the ACLU is Communism. And it re-hashes the words of co-founder Roger Baldwin.
And we still field rhetoric that this was the goal of the ACLU in the 1920s and 30s. When in fact, their efforts back then were needed and affected real change in the world. It seems that the Communism angle and goal of this front organization has stepped up since the end of the cold war. Perhaps it was stepped up since the Civil Rights Amendments were passed since the only high profile issue to them was abortion. But as long as our efforts were focused on defeating the Soviet threat, they got away with corrupting our system from within. But it does seem that since the defeat and collapse of the Soviet Bear in 1991, certain predictions by Nikita Khrushchev have slowly come to pass. But instead of burying us with their rockets, it has been their ideals.
Khrushchev was regarded by his political enemies in the Soviet Union as a boorish, uncivilized peasant, with a reputation for interrupting speakers to insult them. The Politburo accused him once of 'hare-brained scheming' - referring to his erratic policy. He repeatedly disrupted a United Nations conference in September-October 1960 by pounding his fists on the table and shouting in Russian during speeches. On September 29, 1960, Khrushchev twice interrupted a speech by British prime minister Harold Macmillan by shouting out and pounding his desk. The unflappable Macmillan famously commented: "I should like that to be translated if he wants to say anything." At the UN two weeks later, Lorenzo Sumulong, the Filipino delegate, asked Khrushchev how he could protest Western capitalist imperialism while the Soviet Union was at the same time rapidly assimilating Eastern Europe. Khrushchev became enraged and informed Sumulong that he was "kholuj i stavlennik imperializma," which was translated as "a jerk, a stooge and a lackey of imperialism," then removed one of his shoes and made a move as to bang it on the table. During a Big Four summit in Paris on May 16, 1960, Khrushchev demanded an apology from U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower for the U-2 Spy Plane Crisis. This ended the conference. Later that year at the UN, he blasted Western interference in the Congo. At another occasion, Khrushchev said in reference to capitalism, "We will bury you." This phrase, ambiguous both in English and in Russian, was interpreted in several ways. He is famous for boasting to the U.S. President: "We will bury you. Our rockets could hit a fly over the United States."
Perhaps Khrushchev's meaning of our violent demise was over stated, but he in fact has been proven quite the visionary. We are no longer the moral nation that we once were. We do not have the ideals outlined in the services of the many churches each and every Sunday. Our communities have been stripped of enforcing morality codes by the threat of legal action from the ACLU.
Our cash strapped local and state governments have been strong armed in the best tradition of Soviet Russia. By being forced into policies that are contrary to the best interests of the masses of their citizens for the convenience and pleasure of the few.
And that is the true evil of this organization. That they are able to put forth their agenda without actual challenge. These local and state governments cannot afford to take on the mighty ACLU with their 400,000 + membership's dues money added to the funding that they are able to extort from the federal government.
Congressional Emergency
Urge passage of HR 2679, The Public Expression of Religion Act of 2005. What this bill does, is to remove the ability for the award of federal funds for the purpose of recovering legal fees in Establishment Clause challanges to the 1st Amendment. These suits are often taken pro bono. But once won, the attorneys are able to recover legal fees from the government.
We need to get groups like the ACLU off the Taxpayers' Dime. Call, write, or email your Congressman and Senators and urge passage of this bill. Help Put A Stop To The Most Dangerous Organization In America. We are trying to organize a march on all of the ACLU state offices in all of the 50 states. To help in this matter, we are trying to raise money to pay for advertising in our nation's newspapers promoting the march. You can help. Visit Bulldoze The ACLU online store and buy a bumper sticker or t-shirt. All of the proceedes will be going into advertising for this march. Thank You.
