Another 'From Me to You' Letter from Harry Fritzius THE OGRE AND THE STRANGEST POLITICAL PARADOX IN HISTORY. Reads like a Mystery Thriller, doesn't H? Very well, Imagine a greater paradox than this. The richest, most powerful nation the world has ever known, it's very greatness living proof of (he success of It's peculiar form of government—This great nation, with eyes open wide, sits Idly by nnd allows the proponents of n completely alien form of government, (proponents of an Ideology obnoxious to the vast majority of Americans!— allows this nllen group to form a party, (The Communist Parly) n party whose avowed nim is the overthrow of the Government of the United States of America! Here's the ridiculous part of the whole thing. This RED OGRE, the Communist elements within our nation, feeds and thrives upon disunity, discontent, racial strife and bitter hatred existing between employer and employee. Mort startling Is the - fact that the Communists grow their own diabolical food. The tools they use to farm this Pandora's Box of discontent upon which they feed, consist of the very laws of the government which they seek to destroy. Just what, do you think Is the guiding, diabolically clever brain behind this sudden burst of RACIAL HATRED in the South, ANTAGONISM between employer and employee, DEMANDS OF LABOR (Already the highest paid In the world) WHICH WHEN MET BRING FORTH ONLY MORK IMPOSSIBLE DEMANDS. STRIKES by heretofore reasonable LABOR ORGANIZATIONS, in which ordinarily patriotic American laborers, upon the smallest' pretext, or no pretext at all, close down their countries' Industries at v lime when the entire world fs crying for the bare necessities nf life In order to stave oft absolute starvation, not of thousands but of millions, DISUNITY AMONG OUR LAW-MAKERS, nl a time when unity alone can bring order out of chaos and last but not least, MORAL DECAY and breaking down of the home to an extent never before heard of in these United States? For your answer, if there be any doubt in your mind, go to the basic teachings of the Communist Parly as taught by its one true love — Communist Red Russia! Their whole system of world revolution Is based primarily upon the fomenting whenever possible of the very evils outlined above. A united, satisfied country Ls po'jr ground indeed for the teachings of the Communist Party. And io tills monstrous world wide octopus creates its own food ami yrows and grows. Listen to this and explain It if you can. For national stupidity I challenge you to beat it: Our own Attorney General. Francis Biddle, has ruled In unmistakable words, (In the Bridges deportation case) that the Communist Party "seeks the overthrow of the United States government. BY FOUCE AND VIOLENCE." Yet. strange as it mny seem, our government has never seen fit to outlaw the Communist Party, which party H legally admits is seeking to destroy it!
