O'Reilly Exposes ACLU
O’Reilly reveals who it is that’s funding this increasingly radical group:
“The top ACLU donor is far left businessman Peter Lewis, who has given the organization about $25 million, $25 million since 2001. Obviously, a colossal amount of money. Lewis wants legalized drugs, a libertine society. He is a true far-left believer. His pal, George Soros, another far-left fanatic, has donated more than $5 million to the ACLU since 1998. Soros is also behind the radical left organization Move On, which routinely coordinates with the ACLU.
The executive director and point man for the civil liberties group is 39-year-old Anthony Romero, another far-left guy, who actively opposes most traditional beliefs. Romero's a former Ford Foundation executive. And while he was at that operation, it gave at least $7 million to the ACLU. So it's no surprise Romero is now running the place.
So when you combine Lewis and Soros and Romero, you have three radical Americans who are bent on changing this country. And all this nonsense about protecting rights is a ruse.”
O’Reilly then plays a tape of an interview he did on “The Radio Factor” with former ACLU Board Member Michael Myers:
“MICHAEL MYERS, FMR. ACLU BOARD MEMBER: The ACLU is flush with money. It has a lot of money, and not just from Peter B. Lewis and not just from George Soros.
It has a lot of money. It's all about fundraising, and the lefty loony agenda of Anthony Romero…The ACLU has, in fact and in effect, been taken over by the hard left.”
