I'm confused. Maybe you can help.
You seem to accept that Roger Baldwin made both those statements (the one you quoted and the one Kateikins quoted.)
So here's the conundrum.
Those statements are direct opposites. In one he advocates Communism, in the other he proposes a way to destroy Communism.
He can't be pro and anti Communism at the same time. So, which statement is the lie?
Let's work on that.
Someone who is in opposition to Communism doesn't need to lie about his thoughts.
However, Communists lie as part their operational process. One of Karl Marx's main tenets is deception (i.e. "Give the land to the peasants, ultimately to take it away again.")
So...though uncharacteristically open... the first statement has to be the truth. His goal is Communism.
Therefor, the second statement has to be the lie.
The man is proven a liar by his own mouth.
So... a Communist founded the ACLU and "the apple never falls far from the tree." The ACLU began as a group of like minded people with the goal to advance Communism.
Do you suppose that today, for some unknown reason, they have abandoned that goal?
Having said all that, I must say that I do admire the ACLU for one thing...they are one of the top three slickest organizations at disguising their true goals. They are very sharp at picking and choosing which causes they take on, and thereby cover their tracks almost completely.
That's how they get people such as yourself, who are sincere believers in helping others, to accept them as freedom fighters.
Finally, my suggestion to you is, rather than telling others to educate themselves, you take on that task and really analyze what the "main tilt" of the ACLU really is.
