GLENN BECK PROGRAM
GLENN: I wanted to tell you what we have allowed to fester, the ACLU, the American Civil Liberties Union, why there are for foot baths and they're against the Baby Jesus?
Why a university publicly funded can put foot baths for Muslims in their bathrooms, why they are for foot baths in airports funded with federal dollars, they'll fight for that. But Baby Jesus, you can't have Baby Jesus. What? Are you kidding me? Can you imagine if I said, "hey I need the thing with the holy water so I can cross myself because I'm a Catholic? "Can you imagine? The ACLU would be all over it.
What is the real goal? It never makes sense. The ACLU is founded in 1920. The founding director was a guy named Roger Baldwin, he founded the ACLU in 1920. 15 years later, in his college reunion yearbook, Baldwin said and I quote from his yearbook. "I have continued directing the unpopular fight for the rights of education as director of the American Civil Liberties Union I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and the sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal." End quote. This is 15 years after he founded the ACLU. This guy has never made any bones about it.
He founded it in 1920. He was active until 1981. He wrote two books. One "Letters from the Soviet Prisons" and "Liberty Under the Soviets." This is their founding father. In "Letters from Soviet Prisons" Baldwin says "The Russian revolution was, quote, the greatest and most daring experiment yet undertaken to recreate society in terms of human values of incalculable value to the development of the human world."
Now I want you to listen to this. And I'm going to tie the next phrase. You can say that's all ancient history, Glenn, he wrote those books in the '70s. Uh huh. I'm going to tie this next phrase to something, if you watch or listen to this program, you heard it you heard it before. And it was in something else we were all trying to figure out.
In his book "Liberty Under the Soviets," Baldwin defended the Soviet oppression. Still, I want you to see if you recognize this. Defending the Soviet oppression, he said "Repression in the western democracies are a violation of professed constitutional liberties and I condemn them. Such repressions in the Soviet Union are weapons of a struggle in the transition period to socialism."
Do you recognize it? Dan or Stu? Does it sound familiar to you? Are you like why do I know that?
DAN: I think I know it. I think I know it.
GLENN: Tell me.
DAN: The transition period. That's what jumped out at me.
GLENN: No. It's very good. Very good.
STU: I was thinking of the lawyer recently.
STU: What's her name?
GLENN: Lynn Stewart. Yes! She just was this is the woman who was defending the terrorists. She was at NYU, was it NYU it wasn't NYU. I can't remember. It was one of the they're all the same. It was at the Soviet university here on the island of Manhattan. And they had her for ethics. And she condemned the United States and its tactics.
However, with the Soviet Union, when the Soviet Union used thuggish tactics, it was in the name of the people. But she says it's wrong. Gitmo. What we're doing over in the Middle East is wrong. That was for the university, wasn't it? It's the same thing. By the way, who defended her? Who's all up in arms of poor little Lynn Stewart? My goodness, it's weird. Wouldn't be ACLU, would it?
