Father Coughlin-March 16th, 1942

Is it O.K. to be Anti-Christian, but a crime in the United States to be Anti-Semitic?

Text of Samuel Untermeyer's "SACRED WAR" speech August 7th, 1933, upon his return from the World Wide International Jewish Boycott Conference at Amsterdam, Holland and Father Coughlin's Comments March 16th, 1942.

Comment, by Father Coughlin, December 29th, 1942.

We observe that Judge Felix Frankfurter is regarded by many as President Roosevelt's chief brain cell. He is sometimes represented as the architect of the New Deal. It is recalled that his career has not been entirely divorced from Socialistic and Communistic movements.
Many Americans forget that Felix Frankfurter edited a book entitled MR. JUSTICE BRANDEIS (Yale University Press, 1932). On page 108 of that book Felix Frankfurter wrote: "Great social convulsions like the Russian Revolution are bound to have their repercussions of panic among the timed and humorless, particularly panic stimulated by all the modern incitement's to mass felling. Such times present the decisive occasions for a stern enforcement of the right to air grievances, however baseless, and to propose remedies even more cruel than the grievances."

The above words bear testimony that Mr. Frankfurter now on the side of those opposing freedom of the press was then definitely in favor of freedom of the press for the implementation of the Russian Revolution.

While we uphold and demand freedom of the press and of speech to counteract the effects of the so-called Russian Revolution in our own Country we do not subscribe to the false theory that the opponents of Bolshevism should be permitted to employ patent falsehood and criminal misrepresentation. We recollect that the revolutionaries in Russia, following October 1917, made it a crime for persons to write down or talk down the Jews. Indeed, anti-Semitism which had to do with anti-Communism because so many Jews were Communist. Thus, if one attacked a Communist who happened to be a Jew, he was accused of being an anti-Semite. If the attack was proven, the attacker was condemned to death.

Father Linden asks:

"What in God's name is wrong with America?"

"Can it be that the only true Americans are those they call 'isolationists,''appeasers,' and 'constructive traitors'?

"Or can it be that the wrong voices are to the fore---that men take their opinions not from those who have the true welfare of America at heart, but from the war makers, the scandal-mongers, the hired columnists and radio commentators with an ax to grind.

"It is a sad day for America when Americans cannot lift their voices for peace, and what they honestly believe to be the interests of the land they love, without being branded as 'traitors,...

"Like Lord Lothian and Col. Lindbergh," Father Linden concludes, " I believe we are on the verge of a New World Order. We shall have to face it, or deliberately shoulder the burdens and the wars of the old order over the entire world. Recently I wrote an article and entitled it 'Peace now or war forever.' And that is just where we are going--to war forever.

"This war will not settle world problems.

"If Germany is conquered, who will pacify Europe?
Shall the United States have that terrible responsibility? Who will keep Europe pacified with Communistic Russia with the largest army the world has ever known, and the largest array of internal agitators waiting for Germany and England to exhaust themselves?"

Following is the text of Samuel Untermeyer's address over Station WABC after his return from Europe. (From New York Times, August 7, 1933.)

My Friends:

What a joy and relief and sense of security to be once more on American soil! The nightmares of horrors through which I have passed in those two weeks in Europe, listening to the heartbreaking tales of refugee victims, beggar description.

I deeply appreciate your enthusiastic greeting on my arrival today, which I quite understand is addressed not to me personally but to the holy war in the cause of humanity in which we are embarked, Jews and non-jews alike, for we are equally concerned that the work of centuries shall not be undone, and that civilization shall not be allowed to die.

It is a war that must be waged unremittingly until the black clouds of bigotry, race hatred and fanaticism that have descended upon what was once Germany, but is now medieval Hitlerland, have been dispersed. If we will but enlist to a man and persist in our purpose the bright sun of civilization will again shine upon Germany, and the world will be a safer place in which to dwell.

As our ship sailed up the bay today past our proud Statue of Liberty, I breathed a prayer of gratitude and thanksgiving that this fair land of freedom has escaped the curse that has descended upon benighted Germany, which has thereby been converted from a nation of culture into a veritable hell of cruel and savage beasts.


We owe it not only to our persecuted brethren but to the entire world to now strike in self-defense a blow that will free humanity from a repetition of this incredible outrage. This time the Jews are the victims, next time it may be the Catholics or the Protestants. If we once admit, as is brazenly insisted by the German Government, that such fiendish persecution of the people of one race or creed is an internal domestic affair and not a world concern, how are we to know whose turn will be next?

Now or never must all the nations of the earth make common cause against the monstrous claim that the slaughter, starvation and annihilation, by a country that has reverted to barbarism, of its own innocent and defenseless citizens without rhyme, reason or excuse is an internal affair against which the rest of the world must stand idly by and not lift a hand in defense.

I have seen and talked with many of these terror-stricken refugees who have had the good fortune to escape over the border, though forced to leave their property behind them, and I want to say to you that nothing that has seeped through to you over the rigid censorship and lying propaganda that are at work to conceal and misrepresent the situation of the Jews in Germany begins to tell a fraction of the frightful story of fiendish torture, cruelty and persecution that are being inflicted day by day upon these men, women and children, or the terror of worse than death in which they are living.

When the tale is told, as it will be some day if the impotent League of Nations ever sufficiently awakens from its Rip Van Winkle slumber to the realization of its power and duty to prosecute an investigation into the facts, the world will confront a picture so fearful in its barbarous cruelty that the hell of war and the alleged Belgian atrocities will pale into insignificance as compared to this devilishly, deliberately, cold-bloodedly planned and already partially executed campaign for the extermination of a proud, gentle, loyal, law abiding people--a people who love and have shed their blood for their Fatherland, and to whom Germany owes in large part its prosperity and its great scientists, educators, lawyers, physicians, poets, musicians, diplomats and philosophers, who are the backbone of its past cultural life.


But why dwell longer upon this revolting picture of the ravages wrought by these ingrates and beasts of prey, animated by the loathsome motives of race hatred, bigotry and envy. For the Jews are the Aristocrats of the world. From time immemorial they have been persecuted and have seen their persecutors come and go. They alone have survived. And so will history repeat itself, but that furnishes no reason why we should permit this reversion of a once great nation to the Dark Ages or fail to rescue these 600,000 human souls from the tortures of hell, as we can with the aid of our Christian Friends, if we have the will to act.

Protests and please from all corners of the earth, from the leaders of all creeds, having proven as vain and unavailing, as was the idealistic dream of our martyred President of making the world safe for democracy and of protecting minorities against these atrocities, on which we are already actively embarked? Are we right in our plan? If so steps shall now be prosecuted to attain success?

Our campaign is two-fold--defensive and constructive. On the defensive side will be the economic boycott against all German goods, shipping and services. On the constructive side will be an appeal to the League of Nations to construe and enforce the labor union provisions of the Versailles Treaty and the written promises made by Germany, while the treaty was under negotiation, to protect its minorities, which have been flagrantly violated by its disfranchisement and persecution of German Jews.


As to the boycott, strange to say a mere handful in number, but powerful in influence, of our thoughtless but doubtless well-intentioned Jews seem obsessed and frightened at the bare mention of the word"boycott." It signifies and conjures up to them images of force and illegality, such as have on occasions in the past characterized struggles between labor unions and their employers, the word and all that it implies are hateful to their ears.

In point of fact, it signifies nothing of the kind. These gentlemen do not know what they are talking or thinking about. Instead of surrendering to their vague fears and half-baked ideas, our first duty is to educate them as to what us meant by a purely defensive economic boycott, and what we are doing and proposing. Admittedly, the boycott is our only really effective weapon. These gentlemen who are taking counsel of their groundless fears to the exclusion of their reason have done nothing and have no program except to attempt to arouse world opinion, which is and has been from the outset on our side, as it was bound to be because of this brutal, senseless, unprovoked assault upon civilization.

It is not necessary to belittle or underrate that accomplishment, if their aimless, fruitless endeavors in that direction may be so dignified in recognition of their good intentions, barren of results as they have been. It is sufficient that their efforts have proven unavailing and that the campaign of Schreckligheit not only goes on unabated in the face of unanimous world opinion but that it is not increasing in intensity and that the masses of German people, misled by government propaganda and suppression of free speech and of the press, are either voluntarily, or through fear of punishment at the hands of's their despotic ruler, supporting their government in this hellish campaign.

What then have these amiable gentlemen accomplished and what do they hope or expect to accomplish in the way of stemming this conflagration of civilization by their "feather duster" methods? You cannot put out a fire, and especially that kind of fire, by just looking on until the mad flames, fanned by the wind of hate, have destroyed everything. What we are proposing and have already gone far toward doing, is to prosecute a purely defensive economic boycott that will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends.


They have flaunted and persisted in flaunting and defying world opinion. We propose to and are organizing world opinion to express itself in the only way Germany can be made to understand. Hitler and his mob will not permit their people to know how they are regarded by the outside world. We shall force them to learn in the only way open to us.

Revolting as it is, it would be an interesting study in psychology to analyze the motives, other than fear and cowardice, that have prompted Jewish Bankers to lend money to Germany as they are now doing. It is in part their money that is being used by the Hitler regime in its reckless, wicked campaign of propaganda to make the world anti-Semitic; with that money they have invaded Great Britain, the United States and other countries where they have established newspapers, subsidize agents and otherwise are spending untold millions in spreading their infamous creed.

The suggestion that they use that money toward paying the honest debts they have repudiated is answered only by contemptuous sneers and silence. Meantime the infamous campaign goes on unabated with ever increasing intensity to the everlasting disgrace of the Jewish bankers who are helping to finance it and of the weaklings who are doing nothing effective to check it.

The Hitler regime originated and are fiendishly prosecuting their boycott to exterminate the Jews by placarding Jewish shops, warning Germans against dealing with them, by imprisoning Jewish shopkeepers and parading them through the streets by the hundreds under guard of Nazi troops for the sole crime of being Jews, by ejecting them from the learned professions in which many of them had attained eminence, by excluding their children from the schools, their men from the labor unions, closing against them every avenue of livelihood, locking them in vile concentration camps, starving and torturing them, murdering and beating them without cause and resorting to every other conceivable form of torture, inhuman beyond conception, until suicide has become their only means of escape, and all solely because they are or their remote ancestors were Jews, and all with the avowed object of exterminating them.

As against this, the foulest boycott in the annals of time, we are appealing to all mankind to enforce a counter-boycott. That appeal is meeting with the conviction that idealism and justice are still alive.

There is nothing new in the use of the economic boycott as an instrument of justice. The covenant of the League of Nations expressly provides in these identical words for its use to bring recalcitrant nations to terms. President Roosevelt, whose wise statesmanship and vision are the wonder of their civilized world, is invoking it in furtherance of his noble conception for the readjustment of the relations between capital and labor under their term of the sweeping Industrial Recovery Act, to the end that labor shall receive a more just share of the wealth it creates. He is about to enlist the consumers of the country in a national campaign in which they pledge themselves to boycott all manufactures, jobbers and retailers who fail to subscribe to the codes and to buy only from those who have assented and who are thereby privileged to fly the blue eagle of NRA. What more exalted precedent do our timid friends want?

With this explanation of our aims, I appeal to the American Jewish Committee, whose public spirit and good intentions I do not for a moment question, but the wisdom of whose judgment I challenge, no longer to hold aloof but to rid themselves of their timid and ill-considered prejudices and join in actively pressing this boycott as our only weapon except the appeal to the League, which I shall discuss at a later time.

I purposely refrain from including the American Jewish Congress in this appeal because I am satisfied that 95% of their members are already with us and that they are being misrepresented by two or three men abroad. Of them I ask that, prior to the meeting to be held this month in Prague by their executive committee, they instruct these false leaders in no uncertain terms as to the stand they must take on this all-important subject and demand that they shall either openly represent their views or resign their offices. One of them, generally recognized as the king-pin of mischief makers, is junketing around the Continent engaged in his favorite pastime of spreading discord, asserting at one time and place that he favors and supports the boycott and at another that he is apposed or indifferent to it, all dependent on the audience he is addressing; but always directly or indirectly delivering a stab in the dark.

There is not time now, but I hope and expect in the near future to be able to report to you the steps that have been taken and that are already under way, and the surprising and gratifying progress already made in many countries toward the success of the economic boycott in which we are engaged. Although considerable progress in that direction has already been made in Great Britain and in the United States, you will be surprised to learn that they are the least advanced and as yet the most inadequately organized of all the countries that were represented at the Amsterdam World Economic Conference, where the boycott was unanimously and enthusiastically approved by formal resolution by a rising vote.

With us in America the delay has been, due in part to lack of funds and the vast territory to be covered, but it is hoped and expected that this condition will soon be corrected. The object-lesson we are determined to teach is so priceless to all humanity that we dare not fail.

Each of you, Jew and Gentile alike, who has not already enlisted in this Sacred War should do so now and here. It is not sufficient that you by no goods made in Germany. You must refuse to deal with any merchant or shopkeeper who sells any German-made goods or who patronizes German ships or shipping. To our shame be it said that there are few Jews among us, but fortunately only a few, so wanting in dignity and self-respect that they are willing to travel on German ships where they are despised and meet with the just contempt of the servants who wait upon them and of their fellow passengers. Their names should be heralded far and wide. They are traitors to their race.

In conclusion, permit me again to thank you for this heartening reception and to assure you that, with your support and that of our millions of non-Jewish friends, we will drive the last nail in the coffin of bigotry and fanaticism that has dared raise its ugly head to slander, belie and disgrace twentieth century civilization.


March 16th, 1942



Soon nine years will have elapsed since a world-wide "Sacred War" was declared on Germany not by the United States, not by Great Britain, not by France, not by any nation; but by the race ofJews.

Startling as that statement is, it is substantiated by a public address made over station WABC, outlet of the Columbia Broadcasting System, by Mr. Untermeyer, an American Jew.

Was Mr. Untermeyer speaking as an individual, as an American citizen, as a crackpot? Absolutely, no. He was speaking as a member of "Our Race." He was speaking as the executive official of the World Jewish Economic Federation.

What was the occasion of his speech? Having returned from Amsterdam, Holland, where he presided over the International Jewish Boycott Conference--at which conference he was elected president of the World Jewish Economic Federation formed to combat the Hitlerite oppression of Jews--Mr. Samuel Untermeyer spoke most officially, most representatively, most authoritatively. In announcing the factuality of the "Sacred War," he definitely referred to "race," not religion. He went so far as to say that those Jews who did not join with him were "traitors to their race."

Nine years ago, approximately, this high Jewish official--than whom there was no higher at the moment--did not say that we "will go" to war against Germany. He said that the "Sacred War" against Germany was then under way--"actively embarked upon."

Thus, at Amsterdam, Holland, at the meeting above referred to at which Mr. Untermeyer was elected president of the World Jewish Economic Federation, a "Sacred War" was declared against Germany to destroy Germany's very Existence.

Jews all over the world were ordered not to buy from Germany, not to patronize German merchants, not to deal with firms which sold German goods, not to ship on German boats.

Mr.Untermeyer, speaking officially for all the Jews in the world on "what we are proposing and what we have already gone far toward doing, "said that his organization would "undermine the Hitler regime and bring German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends."

All this to rescue 600,000 Jews resident in the Third German Reich.

Thus, a "Sacred War" of revenge was undertaken and was under way by August 6th, 1933.

Did Mr. Samuel Untermeyer foresee that some Jewish leaders would not go along with him? He did not; for he said that all Jewish leaders of Jewish organizations would be compelled to go along with him, following a meeting to be held at Prague, Czechoslovakia that same year--1933.

O, shades of democracy!

Did Mr. Untermeyer absolve Jewish bankers as so many others are want to do for having built up Adolph Hitler? He did not. Specifically, he indicated Jewish banks for having played a great part in the creation of Hitlerism. Said he:

"Revolting as it is, it would be an interesting study in psychology to analyze the motives, other than fear and cowardice, that have prompted Jewish bankers to lend money to Germany as they are now doing. It is in part their money that is being used by the Hitler regime in its reckless, wicked campaign of propaganda to make the world anti-Semitic; with that money they have invaded Great Britain, the United States and other countries where they have established newspapers, subsidized agents and otherwise are spending untold millions in spreading their infamous creed."

But the Jewish Conference to be held at Prague would take care of the Jewish bankers and others who didn't care to go along. They would be weeded out.

We repeat that for persecution suffered by 600,000 Jews in Germany the world was catapulted into a "Sacred War" of economic boycott. The object of the war was to destroy Germany's export trade upon which her "very existence" depended. Only an irrational man would deny that such an economic war would inevitably lead to a bloody, physical war.

And what about the persecution of the 600,000 Jews in Germany? It is true that Hitler placarded their shops; ostracized many Jews from professional ranks; instituted, in some instances, concentration camps for what Hitler thought to be the more dangerous Jews. But why did Hitler practice such extremities? All civilization knows that, following the first World War, wealthy Jews from America, Britain, France, Holland, Galicia and elsewhere moved into Germany with their valuable money and purchased property which was represented by worthless inflated German marks.

Indeed, the Jews became the aristocrats of Germany--financial aristocrats, if you please, having confiscated through their monetary manipulations a great share of the wealth that belonged not only to the 2 million members of the Nazi Party but to the 50 million Catholics, Protestants and other Gentiles who did not belong to the Nazi Party. And, as far back as 1933, a world war--a "Sacred War" --was declared not only against Hitler and his 2 million Nazis but against the 50 million Catholics, Protestants and other Gentiles who were not Nazis.

Flauntingly before the American Public--nearly 9 years ago--chief executive officer Samuel Untermeyer of the World Jewish Economic Federation has the effrontery to ask the Christian of the world to join with his nationals throughout the world to destroy not only Hitlerism and the 2 million Nazis but also the more than 40 million Christians in Germany whose very existence--according to Mr. Untermeyer--depends upon their economic activities with the outside world.

What price Jewry!

Apart from the illogicity of the Untermeyer proposal, the Christians throughout the world--not defending Hitlerism for a moment--suffer an intellectual insult by the invitation to join with the racial Jews against their own fellow Christians who were more sinned against than sinning.

Perhaps the Untermeyer speech throws some light upon the refusal of the Jews to accept Father Coughlin's invitation issued November 20th, 1938, for the Jews to join with the Christians to battle against the Commissars of the Soviet Union whose hands were reeking with the blood of millions of Christians--Christians not persecuted economically, but done to death most outrageously. And at the time Mr. Untermeyer was speaking--1933--not one Jew in Germany had suffered death at the hands of the Hitlerites although they had unjustly acquired German property with their foreign gold.

Unctuously Mr. Untermeyer advertised the purpose of his "Sacred War" Jewish World-wide war to wipe out bigotry, race hatred and fanaticism. Nothing could persuade that gentleman and the world-wide organization he represented to strike a Moscow or to spend a Confederate dollar in behalf of the Negroes, for example, who were downtrodden in 1933--1933, the year made memorable for the beginning of the world war which was then "actively embarked upon."

Nearly nine years have elapsed since the beginning of this world war upon which we "actively embarked." Already millions of lives have been affected by it. Millions of homes have been reduced to rubble. Millions of children have been left fatherless. Millions of properties have been blasted out of existence. The clouds of world-wide destruction hover over us. The stench of the shambles fill our nostrils. Yet Mr. Untermeyer said that the "hell of war and the alleged Belgian atrocities will pale into insignificance as compared to this devilishly, deliberately, cold-bloodedly planned and already partially executed campaign for the extermination of a proud, gentle, loyal, law-abiding people "--600,000 German Jews whom he subsequently referred to as the aristocrats of the world."

Americans were under the impression that this was as war to save democracy; a war to guarantee the lastingness of the four liberties. Mr. Untermeyer has been truthful and told us the real objective of the war.

The entire war was planned by 1933, according to Mr. Samuel Untermeyer--not planned with its litany of defeats for France, Great Britain and the United States. But planned, nevertheless, to rescue 600,000 racial Jews in Germany among whom there were many good Jews; planned to destroy German trade upon which Germans depend "for their very existence."

Mr. Untermeyer specifically said in the interview given to the reporters when he arrived in America from Amsterdam, that capitalism in America would be forcefully lined up, as it were through means of "a peaceful revolution." Even before Mr. Roosevelt had an opportunity to discuss his plans for the reconstruction of America, Mr. Untermeyer disclosed to the world the nature of the plans.

And further, the "Sacred War" would be implemented through the League of Nations, according to the high spokesman of Jewry. We now understand the reason for the rancor which existed in the hearts of Jewry when Father Coughlin and others opposed the entrance of the United states into the League of Nations.

In 1933 America was a country with its sleeves rolled up, its head held high, and its heart throb determined to dig our way out of the depression and scale the rugged heights of national prosperity. Then we were a united country. But diabolically the poison of disunion was dumped into our national veins through propaganda, press, radio, pulpit--and boycotts.

Those who prayed night and day for the energy and will to walk hand-in-hand with Mr. Roosevelt found it impossible to do so when they envisaged the blood bath which a handful of revengeful men was preparing for us--despite the fact that "revenge is Mine, saith the Lord." And these same men have the audacity this day to talk of disunity, of bigotry, of pro-Naziism, of fanaticism.

This most historic speech of Mr. Untermeyer renders puerile the insincere words of those who dare prate of disunity. Let them indict as pro-Nazi, if they will, those who are not fearful to tell the truth; for truth was always the characteristic of a real American.

SOCIAL JUSTICE is making no attempt to answer the question, "Who started the World War?"

SOCIAL JUSTICE leaves the answer to that question to Mr. Samuel Untermeyer, refusing to alter one word of his most historic speech--a speech which speaks for itself.

The Jews of America, through their various publications persistently have calumniated Father Coughlin and SOCIAL JUSTICE both of whom were termed un-American.

Here, then, is our answer to them--in part. We will let the world know who is un-American and undemocratic. If pro-Americanism consists in boycotting in suffering 40 million German people upon whose neck there rested the yoke of the Nazi Party; if pro-Americanism consists in casting the entire civilized world into a seething cauldron of bloody war for the protection of 600,000 racialists or religionists--as you care to call them; it pro-Americanism is identified with secret economic conferences at Amsterdam and dictatorial decrees emanating from Prague which nullifies the peaceful progress of our country--then Americanism, under that interpretation, is not worth while fighting for.

If Americanism consists in propagandizing the minds of a people to engage in a war of revenge because a group of religionists residents in a foreign country is persecuted by a government that rose to power through the financial assistance of a group of Jewish Bankers, in part, would it also be American if the 20 million Catholics, for example, residents in our country lied and plotted and planned, prior to 1933, to engage our country in war against Moscow?

If that is Americanism, let us have none of it.

Of course, Mr. Untermeyer does not refer to the Jews in Germany as religionist. To him they are racialist's. But the propagandizing Jews in America eschew the word "racialist" and employ the word "religionist" not only to suit their convenience but to bandage the eyes of the blind "goyim" of America--the "goyim" who are not the "Aristocrats" but are employed to fight a world war for the Jews, who are the "Aristocrats."


Americans do queer things sometimes, particularly when they get riled, warns Geoge E. Sokolsky in the New York sun.

"At present." he adds, "the American people are generous and kindly toward refugees from European oppression, and I hope they ever remain so.

"If they discover that a bunch of refugees have banded themselves together to try to make us over, they may lose their taste for refugees and they may even kick them out of the country!

"Nothing could be more unfortunate, for some of the refugees are fine men and women who add real value to the American population.

"I would hate to see their live spoiled by a combination of European and American hyper-intellectuals who gaze daily on Central Park in New York City and think that they see the United States."

The Jew has now finally found the champion of his cause, his long looked for "Messiah." Bear this point in mind: As yet official Jewry has not condemned Communism although it has steamed up the world against Naziism and Fascism.

Does it mean that the definition of Americanism must be so comprehensive as to embrace Communism, pro-Semitism and nothing more than a toleration of Christianity.

The sinister scheme which stands behind the clamor going on at present in this country for passive coexistence with Communist Russia, under all sorts of farcical representations, through the press, the radio, the movies, the pulpit, mass meetings, soapbox oratory, street demonstrations, and last but not least on the part of public officials, with the evident objective of forcing the greatest nation on earth into One Worldism.

Is there no soul strong enough in this country to open the eyes of all the American people and make them stand up like one man to protest against this impending appalling tragedy?


In his regular weekly radio broadcast to the nation on April 30th 1939, Father Coughlin said:

"The time has come when patience ceases to be a virtue. The hour has struck when silence is treachery.

"Long enough have we blushed as a result of our Government's having placed its right hand in the gory hand of the murderers in the Kremlin. Long enough have we suffered the ignominy of recognizing Soviet Russia.

"And at length we are confronted with the policy of herding our men, women and children into a battalion of destruction with the anti-Christs, the anti-Gods and the Anti-Americans to join with the Soviet in saving the world.!

"What a blasphemy!.........

"More than twenty years ago we Americans participated in a war to end wars. No twenty years in all history has seen more wars than those which have elapsed since the signing of the Versailles Peace Treaty.

"Clemenceau, the chief signer of that document, cynically sneered that this pet treaty would breed eleven wars!

"To avoid war, we must muzzle the warmongers.

"To muzzle the warmongers, we must take the offensive-not the defensive-against the Bolsheviks who hate our God and who abhor our Constitution, and whose advertised policy is world revolution.

"And this offensive means that everyone in this audience, together with his friends and neighbors, will petition his Senator to uphold the principle of no foreign entanglements whatsoever.

"And this means no Bolshevism, no Communism, no Naziism in or midst, cost what it may.......

"Free speech does not imply the right of radicals to employ free speech in order to destroy free speech.


"Christianity and Communism cannot abide side by side."

How prophetic were those words of appeal and warning!

Did the country heed them? Look around you.

Have we repudiated the alliance with Red Russia, or have we strengthened the tie?

Have we taken an offensive against Anti-Christianity, or is Christianity in this free land itself on the defensive?

Take a close look at where we are today 2011, and who the major players are. Who control the press, The movie industry, television, and communication in general. Who control the money? Who benefited from the so called bail out?

Whose wars are we fighting today.
