Transcript Soviet "Anti-Semitism"—THE BIG LIE! Drums are beating and women are wailing. The primitive tribe of the Bhars is in trouble. An epidemic of cholera has broken out. Man after man is stricken with the dread disease. Sanitation and medical science are totally lacking. The only cause for pestilence known to the Bhars is the anger of evil demons, and something must be done to get rid of them. The priests swing into action. They parade the streets, chanting prayers in weird minor tunes. . . . Then the priests cast lots with small white sticks and choose a young water buffalo. They daub it with red paint. The buffalo is driven through the village. The people rush out of their houses carrying lighted torches and making a tremendous din, screaming, beating pans and drums, to frighten the cholera demons into the body of the unfortunate victim. Finally, the terrified animal is pelted with sticks and stones, driven into the jungle, and never allowed to return. The village plunges into an orgy of rejoicing, convinced that the plague has been carried bodily away. Kenneth Gould When we read stories like this, we usually smile and think how naive and uncivilized primitive tribal life was. We "civilized" people wouldn't fall for stuff like that. Wouldn't we? Don't we? The story that follows in these pages will serve to wipe out any notions of our modern superiority. It is the story of one of the dirties hoaxes ever perpetrated. The incantations of ancient sorcerers had a purpose— to drive out evil spirits. The job of the modern votaries of Wall Street's Imperialism is to destroy reason and sanity, to divide people from one another and to create hobgoblins to divert their attention from the real enemy. This is the story of the latest and foulest of the big lies to be spewed forth by the hate and venom distorted 3
