Transcript The Communists and their Collaborators Senator William Jenner vjF t is u pleasure for me to come here to Cincinnati, as the guest of the Sons of the American Revolution, to meet so many devoted patriots from the heartland of our country. It is an honor for me to be asked to speak to you, who are yourselves leaders in the conflict with the Communist forces seeking to destroy our country. You are well-informed on the facts of Communist penetration. You know the substance of congressional reports on communism. 1 will not attempt to tell you what you already know. You want me to tell you what you do not know : What can we do to halt, and then hurl back, the Communist invasion of our country, and end the nightmare which keeps the world in fear'.'' In a ii-ee-nt hearing in Washington on the Strategy and Tactics of Communism, Mr. Louis Budenz told our subcommittee that the Communist conspiracy is stronger than ever in the I nitecl Slates. He says only whal you and other good fighters in the cause have he-en saying. The realization is widespread thai the power of the Communists over American life is increasing, and increasing al a frightening pace. Why is the power of the Communist conspiracy growing? What can we do to stop it? You want to know how it is possible that a dentist in the United States Army is promoted, and suddenly given an honorable discharge, when he refuses to tell of his Communist connections l" a Senate committee, while an American officer who spent long cruel months in a Chinese prison camp, watching American soldiers starving and dying in a Manchurian cave, is given a dishonorable discharge. Page 32 Remarks of Senator William /'.'. Jenner, (R-lnd.), before the Sons of the American Revolution meeting at Cincinnati, Ohio- October 15, 1954. Senator Jenner says: "f/n/Vss we quickly see the present shape of the Communist invasion, unless we quickly work out the right counterattack, then . . . you and I will live to see Ihe Soviet conquest of the United Stales." You want to know how it is possible that a Senator from a sovereign state of the I nion, following the mandate of his constituents to tear communism out by the roots, is recommended for censure by a committee of the Senate, while men who follow the same policy as the Communists are praised in the press. But let us get one thing straight. Senator McCarthy is not hunting down dentists. He is hunting for men high in our Army who protected a Communist officer in American uniform. The most destructive of all wars may be unleashed at any moment. But what good are our most heroic efforts to protect our country, if the enemy is working secretly within our defense establishment? Even one traitor in authority- over our military forces presents a mortal danger. We cannot take one useful step to safeguard America from Communists in Europe or Asia unless we can find and remove every Communist agent and every Communist collaborator from every position of trust within our gates. I am not interested in the wringing of hands. You can get a thousand speakers to view with alarm. It is too late for that. Let us pass over the dramatics, the oratory, the appeal to emotions; they are a luxury Americans cannot afford today. A group of medical doctors called together in conference to meet a mysterious invasion of bubonic plague would not spend their time telling each other horror stories about wicked germs. Military officers called together to meet invasion by secret legions of the enemy. dressed like travelers but trained tee plant atomic bombs, would not spend a precious minute denouncing the nation which reverts to such horrors. You are not the audience at a movic show on communism. You are the trained and experienced officers of the American resistance. You and I must meet the Communist threat, i "" ""' must meet it today and not tumor" You and I must help our fellow ciw to meet it. COUNTERATTACK OR CONQUEST' I say to you, my friends, that ui» we quickly see the present shape o|. Communist invasion, unless we q"' work out the right counterattack, tl"'1 and I say this most solemnly *""" I will live to see the Soviet conqual the United States. We will live to; thousands of young Americans c*l off to Communist prison camps he1* American soil, tortured by brain"' ing experts as barbarous as any ouM faced in Manchurian prison e amp- shall see old men and women M Starve. We shall see the hard col* true American leadership in politil government, in the press, in churches, led out to die with a bai on their eyes, while hysterical moi frightened men and women are l"'1 together by bayonets ice watch the! laele.
