Transcript It is the supreme duty of our Party to raise against this petty bourgeois progressive alliance which is misleading the workers with the slogans of revolutionary class action. LaFollette is a menace to the labor movement. It is placing the workers under the leadership of the petty bourgeois class with a program in direct contradiction to the interests of the workers and liquidating their class movement. If the Farmer-Labor Party, as formed at St. Paul, represented a real United Front, unifying a mass movement of farmers and workers which would stand firm and carry on the fight against LaFolletteism and the petty bourgeois progressive alliance, unquestionably the fight against LaFolletteism should be made through the Farmer-Labor Party. This is not the situation. Part of the organizations participating in the June 17th Convention are themselves infected with LaFolletteism and will be swept along in the wake of the LaFollette petty bourgeois progressive movement. Our Party, therefore, faces the question whether it shall participate in a Farmer-Labor Party campaign in which the Workers Party will have to bear the brunt of the work and will have to largely conduct the campaign through its organization, or whether it shall conduct a Communist campaign against LaFolletteism in the name of the Workers Party. A campaign in the name of the Farmer- Labor Party would, in the face of the Cleveland betrayal, unite only a relatively small part of the Farmer-Labor forces with the Workers Party. On the other hand, our Party would be greatly hampered in its agitation and propaganda and could not use the political campaign for the direct upbuilding of the Party, if the campaign were conducted under the name of the Farmer-Labor Party. The United Front campaign is only of value to our Party if it unites with us large groups of workers for common action. The degree to which this would be true
