That's a different interpretation of the ACS then any I have heard before. Most attacks came from abolitionists.

Many anti-slavery people felt slavery would be strengthened by sending the freedmen to Liberia and hence removing the most potent of the anti-slavery abolitionists.

Of course, the freedmen were not real enthusiastic themselves about leaving their native land, though over 10,000 eventually emigrated.
