Sometimes a liberal front group is well a liberal front group. And you know how much liberals want to please everyone and be loved.
This reminds me of the liberals in the sixties who spied for the CIA, like Gloria Stienhem.

Although Reporters without Borders' attacks on Castro, Chavez and Aristide are perfectly alligned with the State Department's policies, and though she admitted RSF was receiving money from Reich, Morillon denied that the governmant funding the group receives in any way affects its activities. She pointed out that RSF's $50,000 payments from the CFC and a January grant of $40,000 from the National Endowment for Democracy only constitute a fraction of the organization's budget. This is true, but Menard has other rich rightist friends in Europe and the U.S., including CFC director Manuel Cutillas, head of Bacardi. CFC's executive director is Frank Calzon, another former director of CANF. Reporters Without Borders: Its Secret Deal with Otto Reich to to Wreck Cuba's Economy
Love Me, Love Me, Love Me, I'm A Liberal ....Phil Ochs
Once I was young and impulsive
I wore every conceivable pin
Even went to the socialist meetings
Learned all the old union hymns
But I've grown older and wiser
And that's why I'm turning you in
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal
