On October 17, the ACLU ran a full-page advertisement in the Washington Post, describing itself as “the most conservative organization in America.” The ACLU asserted that, “Since its founding, the ACLU has fought to conserve the system of checks and balances and defend the Bill of Rights.”
Of course, the ACLU was founded by Roger Baldwin, a communist, and since its founding has promoted, at best, socialist views of how America should conduct itself. As for the Bill of Rights, we are still waiting for the first time that the ACLU has acted to defend, rather than denigrate, the Second Amendment which guarantees the right to keep and bear arms.
There is one organization which truly is “the most conservative in America.” That is the Federalist Society, which seeks to preserve and advance ALL parts of the Constitution without exception.
The Federalist Society does not, however, take out full-page ads to pat itself on the back. Neither do organizations such as the American Civil Rights Union, which enters as many cases and issues as it can, in support of all civil rights of all Americans. The distinction between these organizations and the ACLU is that these do not approach the Constitution like a cafeteria line, picking and choosing the rights they want to expand, and rejecting the rest like liver and onions.
