Transcript THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE -To Plead for a Return of Constitutional Government- Vol. II FORT WORTH, TEXAS, SEPTEMBER, 1960 No.9 Destruction of American Form of Government Is The Aim of Both Major Political Parties They Said It Couldn•t Happen Here; lt•s Already Happened The film showing the San Francisco riot in which Soviet agents marshaled scores of college students in that city and led them in a raid on an official hearing conducted by the House Un·American Activities Committee, is being shown in several cities of the United States. It is the first opportunity the American people have had to see Communism in action here in their own country and those who haven't got the nerve to face up to the stark and frightening fact that the International Communist Conspiracy is fi rmly entrenched and is flour· ishing in the United States had better stay away when, and if, the film is brought to their community. No one but a deep·dyed traitor to the American Republic could witness this film in all its shocking detail without shuddering in horror at the criminal dereliction of our national officials ln p t:nitting ·s deadly enemy of Christian civilization to plant its beachhead on Ameri· can soil. Young men and women with features distorted beyond all human resemblance and prodded by brutal, snarling communists including Harry Bridges, led the assault on the Congressional hearing. Bringing up the rear and whipping the evil passions of the howling mob into a frenzy were several disreputable and abandoned old females, a human derelict in the garb of a Protestant minister and assorted scum and dregs of humanity, one of them proudly bearing aloft a picture of their idol, Congressman James Roosevelt of the sovereign State of California, rec­ognized as an outstanding defender of pro·Communist activity in the United States. In attempts to put down the riot, eight San Francisco policemen were injured, two of them critically and a number of mobsters were hospitalized. The Un·American Activities Committee of the House of Representa­tives was set up by the Congress of the United States and is specifically charged with the duty of investigating Communist activities and Soviet espionage in this country and is, therefore, operating under direct legis­lative authority of the American government. The assault on the Com­mittee by the Communist mob was, accordingly, an attack on a unit of the American government. Since this film has been released the question is being constantly propounded as to why the U.S. Attorney General's Department which has displayed marked concern in upholding "the law of the land" in certain areas of the country flagrantly abrogated its duty to uphold this particular "law of the land" so arrogantly defied by Soviet agents on the West Coast. So far as is known no Federal action has been taken, or is contemplated, in punishing members or leaders of the mob. Could it be that this notorious flaw in the administration of justice was due to the fact that Mr. William P. Rogers' alert minions of the law were otherwise engaged and were, perhaps, snooping around in the Deep South trying to collect evidence that some Negro's Civil Rights were being violated? The internal security of the United States and the survival of the American Republic would seem to be heavily involved in the answer to this vital question. As it inevitably comes at sometime in the history of a great country, the time has arrived when sovereign citizens must make defiance of tyranny and the preservation of basic governing instruments the first consideration of their existence or meekly stand aside as their beloved Republic is quietly buried in the cemetery of dead nations. No American with an iota of patriotic devotion to his coun• try, or concern in the preservation of its institutions, could fail to recognize in the recent Democratic and Republican Conventions a bitter contest between the two parties to determine which could more eHectively and completely de· stroy the American governing system. It turned out that the contest between them was a tie and both at Los Angeles and at Chicago it was Old Home Week for the enemies of Constitutional Government. The platforms of both parties add up to an insult and a threat to freedom-loving citizens and no reputable American seriously interested in the sur• vival of the Republic would run for President on either one. When it is considered that millions of unthinking voters will approve and be influenced by these dual assaults on the Constitution, and in view of the further fact that it required less thon thirty thousand like-minded revolutionaries to aver­t row t s · i 1917, we have a pret y grim picture of the future of a nation which was once "the land of the free and the home of the brave." F?r f!10re than a 9uarter of a century the United States, as the only Const1tutwnal Republic left on earth, has been the target of a vicious and relentless World Conspiracy whose objective is to abolish this one remaining stronghold of freedom and add it to the motley collection of Socialist States which represent the only type of government now operat· ing anywhere else on the globe. The American people have watched with varying reactions, ranging from indifference to heartbreak, as our public servants in Washington who swore on the Bible to uphold the Constitution, have aided and abetted this World Conspiracy by gradually abandoning tested, proved and established American policies of government in favor of vague, hazy and impractical theories spun in the warped and perverted brains of world social planners. But as the recent Democratic and Republican Conventions fade into history, the indifference of apathetic Americans ha::; been shattered and the heartbreak of patriotic citizens heightened by the realization that the subversive political action of the two parties in officially giving their stamp of approval to Collectivism, means victory for the World Con .. spiracy through final abandonment of Constitutional Government in the United States by both Democrats and Republicans and the open accept· ance of a Socialist Welfare State in its place. It is true that this subversive political action taken at Los Angeles and at Chicago did not represent the sentiment of the great mass of American citizenship since ninety per cent of the delegations in both cases were composed of low-grade, self·serving local politicians and the solid, substantial and thinking element of the Republic had little voice in the proceedings. But that is the only system we have for selecting candidates for President of the United States and so the cold-blooded fact is that the voters must peacefully revolt and find some other method of independently selecting an American patriot as Chief Execu .. tive in this dark and dangerous period of the nation's history or go ahead and cowardly resign themselves once again to deciding who is the least of two evils - a man proclaiming himself a Democrat or one designated as a Republican and both openly and avowedly committed to Marxism as the accepted policy of the government over which they hope to preside. {Continued on Page 2} Millions of Americans Think it - The Southern Conservative Says It Page 2 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 1960 THE OLD GAG ABOUT "LEAST OF TWO EVILS" HAS BEEN WORN THREADBARE Before the election in 1956, after Eisenhower had betrayed Con­servatives by turning Socialist during his first term, a flock of propa­ganda flooded the country in order to gain Conservative support for the second time. And it worked to the extent that he was re-elected. The propaganda in the late summer of 1956 went about like this: "There is nothing else for us to do except support Eisenhower. We can't vote for Stevenson so we've got to vote Republican because Eisenhower is the least of two evils." That same propaganda is now being broadcast throughout the land. We've already been approached a dozen times with this malarkey: "We can't vote for Kennedy so we've got to vote Republican because Nixon is the least of two evils." Well, maybe so, but we're fed up to here with voting for the least of two evils and we are simply not having any. In our opinion , there are no shades or degrees of evil. If something is evil it is evil period and if there is anything more evil than the platform which Nixon railroaded throu.eh at Chicago, we can't think what it is. We know many Conservative Democrats who are going to vote for Nixon on the theory that he is the least of two evils and that's just dandy With us. That's·their privilege and one 'of the few rights which have not yet been taken away from Ameritan citizenS is that they may still vote for whomsoever they please. ' We are going to wait and see what alternative, if any, is offered to two "evils" and if there is none, one can always write in the name of a good American. To those who hold that this is losing our vote, we counter with the suggestion that it is also losing our vote when we vote for either of two International Socialists and opponents of Constitutional Govern­ment. · If standing for principle means losing, then we are perfectly willing to be rated as a "loser." ANNIVERSARY OF FIRST MAJOR SOCIALIST LEGISLATION CELEBRATED AT HYDE PARK Ceremonies were held at Hyde Park on Sunday, August 14 to com­memorate the official beginning of National Socialism as a policy of the American government. The occasion marked the 25th anniversary of the passage of the Social Security Act by the Congress of the United States and the adoption of the un-American philosophy that the Federal gov­ernment owes the citizens a living. Twenty-five hundred pro-Marx­ists attended the Hyde Park cele­bration including Presidential can­didate John Kennedy who made a strong pitch from the rostrum for more "cradle to the grave" legisla­tion, specifically in the form of free medical care for the aged along the line of Socialist Englan4's laws on the subject. . No mention was made by any of the speakers of Franklin D. Roose­velt's solemn promise to the Gov­ernors of the various states 25 years ago, previous to the passage of the Social Security Act, when he gave the Chief Executives his word of honor that this was mere- Jy "emergency legislation'" and that it would be repealed immediately when the "emergency .. was over. His word didn't turn out to be worth the breath he spent in giving it because from that day forward the Social Security Act was accept­ed as a permanent policy of govern­ment and it inspired other Marxist legislation with which the Federal statute book is heavily cluttered. We happened to be in the Gov­ernor's private office at Austin on that day when Roosevelt phoned in to give his phony promise and when the assurance was later re­peated to us, we gave a gentle horse laugh because, stupid though we may be, we know enough to realize that no people can be pried out of the public trough after they have once started feeding on gov· ernment slop. If there is such a thing as a completely honest politician. Ezra Benson is that. And so the Nixon advisers are telling him to .. ditch Benson''. DESTRUCTION (Continued from Pa9e I) There were thousands of words uttered at Los Angeles and at Chicago and additional thousands written in their respective platforms but not .one voice was raised by a leading candidate at either Convention to suggest a return to those basic principles so faithfully adhered to by American statesmen for more than a hundred and fifty yea rs. And it was the application of these principles, too, which resulted in building up a national economy of such strength and magnitude that we currently are enabled · to finance the rotten Socialist governments throughout the world whose degenerate, debased and subversive systems the two successful candidates for President are now demanding that we substitute for our own. Outside of a few brief references to National Defense, Taxation and Foreign Policy, not a subject was incorporated into the Democratic or Republican platforms which has any proper place in matters legitimately listed on the agenda of American political parties for discussion or whose solution the American government is Constitutionally authorized to con­sider. They both dealt with subjects which either fall within the strict jurisdiction of the Sovereign States or else belong in the category of the individual citizen's private business. No candidate of any political party who is not thoroughly steeped in Marxist philosophy would project such things as farm price supports, crop control, illegal sit-in demonstrations, medical care for the aged, urban renewal, minimum wages, public housing, slum clearance, Federal aid to education, employment practices, right to work, civil rights or other non-government issues as proper subjects for legislative action or as problems whose solution should be saddled on to the sore backs of the tax-ridden people of the United States. The platform writers who spent the major portion of their time, thought and attention on these irrelevant subjects in a supreme attempt to corral the votes of partisan blocs and minority groups, and the candi­dates who emphasize them during the campaign, know in their hearts that these planks were taken almost in their entirety out of the platforms of Norman Thomas and Earl Browder when the latter were candidates for President of the United States on the Socialist and Communist tick­ets, respectively. At any rate. we have come to the point where both major political · parties have abandoned Constitutional Government and both candidates for President are openly committed to Marxism as a form of government and a way of life. There is no sense in saying that nothing can be done because the American people are Sovereign and, united, they can do anything they want to do. The time is short before the election but in the meantime miracles could be wrought if the public temper is at white heat which it should be, and which it is reported to be. Any of several courses could be followed: There could be a quick nation-wide campaign to blitz the people into action and which would call for the write·in of the name of an American patriot dedicated to American principles of government to replace the two major candidates who have repudiated these principles. Another plan would be for good Americans to stay away from the polls and let either one of the two candidates be elected - it does not make any difference which one as their political philosophy is identical -and concentrate on the election of candidates for Congress which, after all, holds the balance of power. All members of the House will be up for re-election and where there is no opposition, a name could be written in in the case of those who have betrayed th eir constituents. By thinning out the ranks of political thieves and looters in even one branch of Congress, (which would have its shock value and frighten those who are re-elected,) the evil influence of a Socialist administration could be halted, or greatly curtailed, for four years when, let us hope, the American people will have come to their senses. The South could of course, be of fabulous help in rescuing the Republic from the threat of total Socialism by uniting for uninstructed electors but that section is in the tight vise of powerful politicians who had rather see the country given back to the Indians than take a chance on losing their committee chairmanships in Congress. A few Southern States may be depended on to take action but, by and large, the leaders will herd the people like sheep into the Democratic fold with the possible exception of several which may go Republican but that, of course, is no solution. The only other alternative is just to sit back, accept the inevitable, watch the American Republic folJow the example of all other nations who have gradually sunk into the morass of human slavery and subscribe to the theory that freedom is a lost cause. But if this happens, let us not place the blame on power·mad and unscrupulous politicians but on ourselves in whom was vested the responsibility of preserving the Republic which early American patriots so carefully constructed and entrusted to our keeping. In this connection, we call attention to a drop-head over our lead editorial in the October, 1956, edition of the Southern Conservative titled "American People Are Paying the Penalty For Surrendering Their Inherent Rights" and which, in view of the threatened collapse and dis­ruption of the American governing system seems tragically prophetic at this time: It is the inexorable law of nature that individuals must pay in full measure for their sins, errors of judgment, and wilful trans­gression of the restraints which society has prescribed for the social behavior of man. By the same token, it is the inflexible rule of an orderly governing system that the people of a nation must suffer penalty when they evade their responsibility as citizens, grow re­miss in their duty as sovereigns and fail to exercise watchful stew­ardship over those elected to represent them. For almost a quarter century, the people of the United States have stepped aside and permitted national leaders to overturn age-old precedents and hon­ored traditions; repudiate sacred covenants between the government and its people; and to violate the organic law on which such govern­ment rests. The debt-burdened, tax-ridden and unstable State of the Union in our time stems from our apathetic indifference concerning the preservation of our country and its institutions while showing anxious concern in setting up a New World Order; our renunciation of national patriotism in favor of Global Allegiance; and our will­ingness to give up our safe, soJid and secure status as Sovereign Citizens of a Constitutional Republic in return for Squatter's Rights in an International Utopian Paradise. Ct ~ p h F S.ptombo•, 1960 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE SOME OBSERVATIONS ON A FORM OF HUMAN MADNESS BETTER KNOWN AS DEMOCRATIC AND REPUBLICAN PARTY CONVENTIONS In moments of stress, all dele· gates to national political conven­tions are afflicted with a mild form of mass insanity. Instead of care­ful deliberation and calm behavior. a spirit of mob hysteria governs the proceedings and men and wo­men mill aimlessly around like cat­tle before a thunderstonn. Tread­ing endlessly up and down the aisles. they don't know where they're going nor why; neither do they know what they are going to do or say when they get there. They are only sure of one thing and that is that they must maintain perpetual motion. It is in such an atmosphere that a President of the American Republic is chosen which might possibly account for the con­fused and addled-brained type of leadership so often thrust upon us. Surely there must be a better way to get the job done. * * * Keynote speeches are usually composed equally of bull, bun­combe and baloney and this year was no exception. Walter Judd made a brilliant talk at Chicago ex­cept that none of it was true. Ob­viously he was laying down sound Republican principles which once prevailed, but which Eisenhower has smashed into smithereens. Frank Church at Los Angeles said nothing that Kart Marx hasn't said a hundred times before; and a hun­dred years earlie r. * * * The solid , substantial citizenship or the United States had no rep­resentation whatever either at the Democratic Convention in Los An­geles or the Republican Conven­tion in Chicago. Both were assem­blies composed mainly of scrub politicians of the local level totally submissive to their Wash­ington masters who are be­traying the American people every hour on the hour. Some few Southerners made token ges­tures of protest at the degen­erate and debasing platforms of both Conventions but, with a few exceptions. in the end capitulated, tuck'?d their tails and knuckled un­der to the subversive elements in control when the whip was crack­ed. Both Nixon's and Kennedy's nominations were accomplished by default on the part of responsible American taxpayers. * * * Many considerations are known to have influenced the selection of candidates in both cases. Lodge and Kennedy were intended to lend an aura of glamor to their respec­tive tickets because of their social positions and because they are from the right side of the railroad tracks. Nixon and Johnson, on the other hand, provide the earthy, horny·handed and self-made ele­ment, both of them having fought, hammered and clawed their way to the top. No attempt was made to toss in an American patriot or two to balance off the Welfare Staters and give Constitutional Govern­ment a fifty-fifty chance. That con· sideration didn't enter the picture at any point. * * * Most politicians usually wait un­til they are safely in office to double-cross and betray the people who elected them but Richard Nix­on is an exception. Being a pro­gressive and up·and-coming young man, he didn't wait until he was elected, or even nominated, but jumped the gun and sold out to Rockefeller before his selection as the Reoublican candidate was cin­ched. It there ever was a case of double-dyed treachery to Conserv­atives, that was it. * * * It is rumored that in the event Kennedy should win the election, he will name Adlai Stevenson as Secretary of State. It is our private opinion, publicly expressed. that if this tra~ic prediction should be re­alized, it would be the equivalent of a gilt-edged invitation to Khrush­chev to come over here and help himself. * * * An amusing feature of the Los Angeles Convention was provided in the "gallery delegates" who voted right along with those legal­ly elected to perfonn this function when a voice vote was substituted for a roll call. Paul Ziffren, Dem­ocratic big shot in Los Angeles whom the leaders of the party wilt probably play down during the cam­paign because of recent publicity about his "connections," is said to have combed the underworld in his search for material fo r the "cheer section" of the auditorium. * * * In our opinion this country lost a potentially valuable public serv­ant on that day when Jack Ken­nedy decided, or was persuaded, that it was politically wise to throw in his lot with the enemies of Con­stitutional American Government. With his looks, his personality and his family background of culture, education and wealth there are no heights to which he might not have gone if he had only been a sound, right-thinking: American instead of a dedicated disciple of Karl Marx. * * * Not a chirp was heard from Tex­ans at the Los Angeles Convention all of whom remained tongue-tied when the contemptible Civil Rights plank was being railroaded through even though the people of Texas had voted almost four to one in a State election against the things which this plank demanded. * * * Roosevelts were present at both conventions. John, often referred to as the "respectable" member of tbe family probably because he has kept out of the headlines. second­ed the nomination of Nixon at Chi­cago; Eleanor and James held forth at Los Angeles while Elliott was said to be lurking in the background there. Incidentally, it is the first time in her experience that the "First Lady of the World·• ever left a National Democratic Conven­tion with her tail feathers dragging tbe ground. Still "madly for Adlai" until the bitter end, she flounced out of Los Angeles when Kennedy whom she despises was picked as the standard bearer and firmly re-fused to stay and take part in the final whoopee. * * * Not only did Lyndon Johnson never have a ghost of a chance to be placed at the head of the tick­et, but he was not even nominated officially for second place. Those who were maneuvering to bring this about didn't dare put it to a vote by States because they knew he would be defeated even for the job on the tail end of the ticket, so they decided to handle it by "ac­clamation." The "noes" were so ~much stronger than the "ayes," ev­en with Ziffren's gallery delegates joining in, that there was a gasp when the "impartial'' chairman, Le­Roy Collins, gavelled Johnson into the job. This overwhelming oppo­sition to Johnson must have been disconcerting to Kennedy but John­son took it in stride. After all, he is not exactly inexperienced at achiev­ing office through devious methods. * * * . Mr. Sam Rayburn, venerable career politician who has spent practically all his adult life on either a State or Federal payroll was also a casualty of the Los An­geles Convention along with Elea­nor Roosevelt, Harry Truman and other senior citizens of the pa rty. The wet-behind-the-ears Welfare Sta ters who are now second in command to Negroes in directing Democratic Party affairs gave him a g rea t big hand to show their affection but they a lso gave him the boot when they got ready to name their candidate. * * * We've got to _give Kennedy credit for one thing if for nothing else. At least so far, he has not com­pelled his wife to hobnob socially with Negro washerwomen to in­fluence the colored vote. * * * The biggest hoax of either con­vention was the illusion that Nel­son Rockefeller was a powerful factor to be reckoned with when as a matter of fact, he is only a political gadfly with nuisance value. Until Nixon struck out in the mid­dle of the night to trade and traffic with him and to barter principle for the billionaire Socialist's non­existent influence, nobody paid any attention to him. At the convention he was a regular One-Eyed Con­nally gate-crashing his way into every conference and gathering and he never missed a bet at poking his pan into every available tele­vision camera. * * * The ubiquitous Perle Mesta who is convinced that there is no do­mestic or foreign problem which can't be quickly solved over a plate of hors d'oeuvres or a tray of cock­tails was at Los Angeles and threw her inevitable party which was so exclusive that nobody but the gen­eral public attended. She had im­partially announced that she 'would do likewise at the Chicago conven­tion but somebody must have talk­ed her out of it. The Republicans already had troubles enough. What with smouldering Conservative sentiment threatening to break out at any moment and mess up Nix­on's liberal platform, the situation. was ridiculous enough without the "hostess with the mostest" adding to the ·general comedy .. Someday it is to be booed that this well­meaning and harmless lady may find a better way to spend her mil­lions than in trying to stoke up freeloaders at parties and political conventions. * * * It is widely believed. froM the demonstration for Barry Gold­water at Chicago, that if ·the n-..te­gates had not been hog·tied be­fore they left home, the Arizona senator would have been the nom­inee of the Republican Partv. His refusal, ho\¥ever, to lend any en­couragement to the strong n., t ion~ wide movement in his behalf has caused mixed reactions among Con ~ servatives. Many believe he playe~ it smart and that he has some well­laid plans to develop a strong movement within the partv for UTlit­ing Conservative forces. But what is perhaos a maioritv of his e rs t­while fo11owers, feel that he betra y~ ed them in choking off the d ~m­onstration and asking them to sup­port Nixon. Perhaps this viewooint was best expressed by a prornin­ent person whose activity, hoth financial and otherwise. contribut­ed largely to the vast demonstra­tion of Goldwater sym9athy at Chicago, and who later sairl to us in a pe rsona \ le tter: " In a l\ rever­ence, I can understand how Jestls our Lord must have felt when one of His own group betrayed Him. That is what I conc;ider Barry Gold· water did to his Conservative sup· porters. He accepted their acclaim and adulation and then wi thdrew his name without a llowin~ a vote to be taken which would have shown his supporters how much or how little they had accomolished. To add to this ignominy, he then begged them to throw their sup­pott to Nixon. He could not have offered us a greater insult." But, regardless of what Senator Coldwater did or did not do or say at Chicago, and regardless of any one's personal views of the course he chose to pursue. the indisputable fact remains that if, during the past eight years, we had had a couple of dozen leaders in the Senate of the Arizona lawmaker's stature and with his voting record, Socialism would not today be the dominat4 ing policy of the American govern4 ment. All honest citizens must con­cur in that inescapable conclusion. * * * Not only did both political par-ties at their respective conventions make a deadly assault on the Con­stitution through the adoption or Socialist policies of government, but they openly went on record as favoring mob violence and civil disobedience to law and order through the adoption of planks bid­ding for the support of defiant, un .. ruly and irresponsible young ruf .. fians. * * * Both platforms were constructed on tbe thesis tbat tbe changing world in which we live calls for a (Continued on Page 4J Poge 4 The Southern Conservative A MONTHLY PUBLICATION OF EDITORIAL OPINION WITH NATIONAL CIRCULATION IDA M.

Any American who is able fin­ancially to send his children to a private school and yet allows the_m to go to a public integrated school for political reasons is the lowest possible specimen of humanity. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE SOME "EXALTED OBJECTIVES" TO WHICH FOREIGN AID PROGRAM IS DEDICATED A Commission of Inquiry which was created in July by t~e Belgian government and which is composed of high j.udges of ~~e Belgtan Courts has issued a preliminary report on the hornble ~trocttte~ b?' Con~ol~se troops in Leopoldville and surrounding areas whtch details m ternfymg clarity the brutal attacks on white residents there. The Commission which reported only on cases that could be docu­mented told of the raping of hundreds of women including Protestant missionaries and Catholic nuns, many of whom were ass~ulted over and over again. The Commission pointed out that 291 Belgtan women gave their testimony in hearings conducted by the gr?.UP. Following the release of this report _the Amencan State .Depart­ment came into the picture and persons wtth weak s~omachs will prob­ably find it hard to accept without nausea the reactiOn of that agency to the beastly situation. Representatives of the Department appeared. b~fore the Congress of the United States and asked for an extra appropnat10n of $100,000,000 to send to that same African government ~<and possibly other new Afri-can States." . The American people have frequently been given glimpses 1~to the horrifying corruption which attends the administration o.f the Foreign Aid Program, including the diversion of millions of dol~~rs m~o .channels not even remotely related to the announced purpose of contami!'lg Com­munism" but this latest implication that these funds are practiCally to be used in subsidizing black African rapists in their expeditions of carn-age, lust and murder just about wraps it up. . . Until now, perhaps the nearest approach to this latest perversiOn of the Foreign Aid Program occurred in 1955 when it was revealed that the recipient government of Vietnam was using their "Aid" money in encouraging the advancement of the world's oldest pro~ession. . . In the May, 1955, edition of the Southern Conservative, we said m part: We have seen the recipients of this money (Foreign Aid) put it to practically every conceivable use under the sun from building atomic weapons which may someday be turned against us to setting up tap-dancing classes for retired Himalayan camel drivers but we believe the South Vietnam government has converted a share of its Foreign Aid into a channel which even the weasel-brained reform­ers and do-gooders who initiated the program had not anticipated. We learn from the New York Times that authorities of Viet­nam's government may have utilized part of its Foreign Aid money and the prefabricated houses we sent them to reorganize, rehabili­tate and modernize their local prostitution industry and put it on an up-to-date and paying basis. "The rumor persists that part of Siligon's massive bordello was constructed with American aid dol ­lars and prefabricated housing," writes C. L. Sulzberger in the Times. We bow graCefully to the superior wisdom of those who shape our foreign policy and whose irrevocable decisions commit us to the responsibility of advancing the economic, social and cultural prog­ress of under-privileged countries of the world but we timidly rise from the rear and respectfully protest that the appropriation of American tax money to subsidize a South Pacific assignation house is hardly a proper method of achieving this worthy end. If the sponsors of the foreign aid program will have their re­search department give close study to the subject, we believe they will decide that this particular grant was unnecessary since the industry they may be propping up in Vietnam is an especially hardy perennial among human enterprises and one which will unquestion­ably survive and flourish without benefit of government support. We are also convinced that they will find that this was a thriv­ing business in the island long before the Marshall Plan was put into effect and before prefabricated houses were invented and when those engaged in it had to carry on their transactions in tumble­down shacks and dilapidated bamboo huts and, in a pinch, under the protecting branches of a spreading banyan tree. The use to which Foreign Aid has been put in these instances, how­ever, is no more immoral than the program itself which is based on rob­bery and extortion of the American people for the benefit of corrupt and depraved officials of alien governments. Those of our public servants who vote for the Foreign Aid program and appropriate money to carry it out are not only guilty of aborting the intents of the American Constitution but of criminal extortion and illegal confiscation of the money of the constituents who elect them. Chester Bowles, darling of the ADA, UNESCO and practically all other groups in the category of left-wing and anti-American acti­vities, has announced that he will not run for re-election as Congress­man from Connecticut in order to give his full time to the election of the Kennedy-Johnson Socialist ticket. The real reason he is not going to run, according to inform­ed sources, is because he knew he would get clobbered at the Con­necticut polls. Because of his recent birthday, newspapers are featuring the fact that Mr. Bernard Baruch "has been adviser to Presidents since Wood­row Wilson" as if that were some­thing to be proud of. From the frightening State of the Union and the rapid deterioration of the Re­public to a Socialist Welfare State, he must have given them some punk advice. "For a man to love other coun­tries as much as he loves his own country is the same thing as lov­ing other women as much as he loves his own wife."-Theodore Roosevelt. September, 1960 Exuberant Texas Democrat Talks Out of Turn A Mr. Larry Blackmon, financier of Mineral Wells, Texas, who was one of the ramrods of Senator Lyn .. dan's unsuccessful bid for the Dem­ocratic nomination for President is now heading up "National Com­mittee of Business and Profession­al Men for Kennedy and Johnson." In a recent statement to the press Mr. Blackmon made this ra­ther amazing and breath-taking statement in urging the election of the Democratic ticket: "Election of Senators Ken­nedy and Johnson will insure a more equal distribution of wealth than at present among all segments of our economy." We read it twice to make sure we were seeing right and not mis­taking his frank and unprecedent­ed admission for something we had read in the "Manifesto." Any literate person knows of course that Kennedy and Johnson are irrevocably committed to an outright Socialist program includ­ing Marx' theory of re-distribution of the wealth "among all segments of the economy.'' but somebody in authority had better get hold of Mr. Blackmon and out him right. It's not considered good political strategy to come right out before the election and quote Karl Marx verbatim and even some extreme left-wingers are liable to be fright­ened away by such a frank Social­ist pronouncement in black and white. Democrats and Republicans alike were running wild on the bases dur­ing the ridiculous . session of Con­gress just closed. One of them even introduced an amendment to the medical care for the aged bill which would include mental cases in its provisions. The senator was looking out for himself and his colleagues, probably. Some Observations (Continued from Page 3) re-shuffle in moral values and for the abandonment of the image of the Caucasian race as the builder of Christian civilization in the United States. Those who wrote these platforms apparently pro· ceeded on the assumption that it was black men from Africa who settled the American Republic; who manned the guns and bayonets at Lexington and Concord and who struggled through the dark winter at Valley Forge; who tunnelled through the mountains and girdled the nation with railroads; who fi­nanced and constructed factories, schools and churches, caused arid lands to blossom with fields of grain and who, in brief, took all the risks incident to the transfor­mation of a wilderness into an em­pire and that lazy, indolent and backward white people are merely beneficiaries of the blessings pro­vided by the thrift, brains and in­genuity of the colored race. * * * To sum it all up we are convinc­ed that the four men on the two tickets, Nixon and Lodge and Ken­nedy and Johnson, in private life, are all gentlemen and scholars but as American statesmen qualified to steer the Ship of State through troubled waters, they are good ski jumpers. September, I 960 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE Page 5 They Nominated the Wrong Member of the Kennedy Family According to press reports, old Joe Kennedy has been sent to Europe to remain during the Presidential campaign because his son does not want to be "embarrassed" by echoes of the Conservative political views of his father. Now isn't that just too bad? If that young sprout isn't embarrassed by his own subversive political views, he has hide like a rhinoceros and is past all possibility of embarrassment. If he only realized it, there are scores of worth-while Americans who would vote for the elder Kennedy if he had been nominated for President but who would not touch his radical offspring with a ten-foot pole. Kennedy, Sr., had the nerve to tell Roosevelt off for his un-American policies of government and, according to reliable reports, is a clear­headed, sound-thinking citizen with his feet on the ground and with a measure of respect for the American Free Enterprise System which is not even remotely understandable to his wacky, bushy-headed son. Instead of having his old man shanghaied off to Europe for the dura­tion, this adolescent Socialist should have kept his father as near to him as possible in the faint hope that he, himself, might imbibe some small measure of the latter's wisdom, experience and understanding of the American governing system which he seeks to administer. We have said many times before and we repeat that the most dang­erous American of all, in matters of government, is a millionaire Socialist who had his money handed to him on a silver platter and who has con­tributed nothing in brains, energy or initiative towards its accumulation. Invariably these second-generation millionaire Marxists develop a guilt complex as if the possession of wealth were something sinister, something to be ashamed of instead of the laudable ambition of every normal American. When they get in politics, they immediately turn to the left and strike out against the great American system which enables them to personally live in a state of luxury and splendor their own efforts could never have provided for them. While they don't share their own wealth, they are anxious to raid the Federal treasury and distribute its contents equally between any and all minority groups offering bloc votes to the highest bidder. Jack Kennedy is a typical example of the rich young Marxists who are being given entirely too much attention and say-so in a beleaguered Republic which in these tragic times is in dire need of the ripened judg­ment, sagacity and wisdom of men of mature minds. SAID, "IT WAS PLANNED THAT WAY" The great majority of the Amer­ican people must have wondered why so much stress was placed on Civil Rights at the two recent poli­tical conventions and why this sub­ject was the recipient of so much attention both at Los Angeles and at Chicago while vital matters af­fecting the security and survival of the Republic were slighted or given scant consideration. Perhaps those who labored with these Civil Rights planks did not themselves know the answer but only realized that vast pressure was behind the demand for them, and felt that the success of their respective parties depended large­ly on how they treated that portion of their platforms. There are perhaps a hundred pro­nouncements on the subject which could be quoted to show where this pressure is coming from and who originated the demand for all the racial agitation and strife which has divided the people of the United States in recent years, and caused politicians to bend over backwards in Catering to organized integra­tion groups. However, only one quotation will suffice. That is a statement by Wil­liam Z. Foster, long time head of the American Communist Party who outlined the action his party was taking in the matter and which anpears on page 93 of the Public Hearings of the State of Louisiana Joint Legislative Committee in Ba­ton Rouge, March 6-9, 1957. Mr. Foster's statement was taken from documents written by him and which were put out by Internation­al Publishers, and his reference to Southern Negroes said: "The Communist Party, alone of all political parties, fights for liberation of the Negro, both in the present day struggle and as an ultimate goal. The American Soviet Government, immediately after it takes form, will be a shattering blow to the whole monstrous Jim Crowism. To des­troy it ruthlessly will be one of the real joys of the victorious proletarian revolution. Every remnant of slavery will be abol­ished. In a Soviet system, the Negro will have the most com­plete equality, economically, po­litically, socially. The doors to every occuoation, to every social activity will be wide open to him. He will have ample land confis­cated from the great white land­lords. He will be free to do and go as any other citizen, without lack or hindrance. Attempts to maintain the capitalist white fa­voritism and ostracism of the Negroes will be punished as a serious crime against society ... Accordingly the right of self-de­termination will aooly to Negroes in the American Sovi'l't System. In the so-called 'black belt' of the South where the Negroes are in the majority, they will have the fullest ri,:?ht to govern them­selves and also to govern such white minority as may live in this section . " The Communist Party in Amer­ica no lon.eer puts out candidates to push this program. They long ago decided it was no longer nec­essary. The Democrats and Repub­licans are doing it for them. Threat of Black Dominion Now Looms Large Over the World One of the real but unannounced objectives of the Bandung, Indon­esia, Conference in April, 1955, which was to initiate plans for the dom­ination of the world by the colored races, is now being realized in Africa where black men out of the jungle are engaged in an orgy of savage crimes against white people which defies human imagination. Visitors to this country from that area of the world tell of atrocities committed by black savages who have recently received "independence" and whose conception of freedom means the right to indulge in an orgy of arson, rape and murder which is without parallel in human history. It all started with white fools and do-gooders who, under Commun­ist inspiration, plugged for the abolishment of "Colonization" and for brutal savages to be given the right to govern themselves, which they are no more capable of doing than they are of making a flight to the moon. As long as the Belgians had control in the Congo, law and order was maintained and the world heard nothing of diabolic crimes on the part of uncivilized natives which now occur around the clock. Negro psychology is the same all over the world. To them liberty means license and brute force is the only law they understand. The world is learning this fundamental fact now tjlat it is too late and the terrifying situation in Africa is brewing trouble that could mean World Warlll. In the United States, as a result of the same kind of blundering on the part of white fanatics, the shadow of the black man is looming ever larger as special favors of government and class legislation are extended to the colored race. Negroes now dominate the White House, the Supreme Court and the Congress and not one of the three branches of government would dare to take official action not approved by the NAACP. Negroes dominate both the Democratic and Republican Parties and dictated major planks in both platforms at recent national conven­tions. Negroes also control the election machinery of the Sovereign States through provisions in Civil Rights legislation and no American white citizen can any longer vote his conviction at the ballot box and have it stand up against an adverse ruling of a Negro-conscious Federal judge. How normal, decent and self-respecting white persons can aid and abet a movement designed to project a people not long out of Can­nibalism to a position of dominance over the white races of the earth is beyond human understanding 'and can only be ascribed to th~ global lunacy now permeating all sections of the world. Now that Lyndon Johnson was chosen on the Democratic Socialist ticket in second spot to "soften up" the South, we wonder if he will still refuse to rise to his feet when the band plays Dixie as he is re­ported to have done at a meeting of left-wing members of his party sometime ago in Washington when he was still hoping for first place. We imagine now that he will per­form differently and that when this immortal Southern air is played, he will spring up like a jack-in-a-box. He has proved many times that he can make a auick switch and it will be wise for him to make this one. Here's a fair sample of our "cul­tural relations" with other coun­tries. The American State Depart­ment, usin.e taxpavers' money, has sent one Calvin Dash, Negro, to Mexico where he is giving concerts to civic clubs. Dash gained promi­nence by appearing in a Broadway production written by Langston Hughes, notorious Negro atheist and Communist partisan whose blasphemous writings against the Christian religion were widely pub­licized by the American Commun­ist Party some years ago. Don't tell us television programs don't have their educational value to the young generation. A four­teen- year-old Houston lad invented a gun in which he used unchewed bubble-gum for bullets. He tried out the contraption by shooting a com­panion in the stomach. The victim was rushed to the hospital where the flow of blood was staunched and the wound treated. NLRB Strikes Blow Against American Free Enterprise In keeping with a policy of fa­voritism to labor unions and an­tagonism for industry and th;. American free enterprise system. the National Labor Relations Board hit out at the strike-ridden Kohler Company in Wisconsin recently and made a ruling that would not have been tolerated when this coun­try was a Free Republic. Under this ru ling the Kohler Company was "ordered" to rehire approximately 1,700 workers who were fired by the company six years a.eo during a strike railed by Reuther's United Auto Work­ers and which is still in effect. The Kohler Company, according to the press. plans to aopeal the order through a court suit in Chi­ca. eo. We presume that the "order" of the NLRB means that the Kohler Company will be made to pay sal­aries of men who wilfully quit their jobs and who have been harassing the company and engaging in acts of violence during the six years they were not working. One by one the blows are rain­ing down on Constitutional Gov­ernment and on the freedom which the American people once enioyed, and the people are doing little, if anything, about it. Since we insist on having "cul­tural relations" with the Soviet, we favor sending pianist Van Cliburn to Moscow as a gift to the Russian people to keep permanently Pogo 6 THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE September, 196Ct SOME UNHAPPY BUT UNDENIABLE FACTS ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING TO US It may be inconceivable and incredible to the average American but they had just as well face up to the fact that in the Congress there are traitors to this country who are lying in wait for a chance to betray us into slavery by surrendering American sovereignty to the World Court. Maybe these enemies of America have been brainwashed to the point where they do not realize the enormity of their acts and have actually been led to believe that this course is desirable but any way, there it is. Early in 1960 they had their plans all set to pass a bill through the Senate which would repeal the Connally Amendment to the legislation which accepted jurisdiction of the World Court in the settlement of world problems. The Connally Amendment which was inserted over the vig­orous protest of these anti·American politicians in 1946 provided that in accenting jurisdiction of the World Court, it would be left to the United States to determine what were domestic problems and, therefore, not subject to jurisdiction by the Court. The proposed measure which they had all set to slip by the Senate early this year would have repealed the Connally amendment and left it to the World Court to say which were and which were not domestic problems. Patriotic publications and groups got to work and informed as many people as possible of the legislation and what it would do in enslaving the American Reoublic and make the security of the United States amenable to the will of the World Court composed of aliens, including Communists. So these taxpayers, when alerted, got busy and with a barrage of letters, telegrams and cards Jit on the backs of their senators like a duck on a June bug which, of course caused the latter to retreat for the time being. Later in the year, they tried to slip this legislation through by tack­ing it on to a seemingly innocuous measure but were again caught in the act and had to take to their heels. What we are trying to put over is that those who are the real sponsors of this atte~pt to destroy American sovereignty (and that, of course, is not the senators themselves who are only carrying the ball for the_ real instigators) will never give up and when the next Congress meets m January they will be on the job again. We hope that alert patriotic Americans will watch out carefully for any further attempt to sneak this legislation by and will let their senators have it with all they've got. It's hard to believe, of course, that so-called public servants who are under oath to protect the American Republic have to be watched like enemy spies to keep them from betraying their country but these are strange times with peculiar things happening in the world and no responsible citizen can afford to let down the guard for a moment. Houston Citizens Are Victims of frame-Up The people of Houston were re­cently the victims of a frame-up on the part of chain stores operat­ing in the former city, most of which are New York-owned. In collaboration with Houston newspapers, television and radio channels who are the beneficiaries of the extensive advertising which these foreign-owned ' establish­ments control, a conspiracy of si­lence in regard to a very nauseous phase of integration was accomp­lished "without incident" as liber­al newsmen are so fond of sayiq.g. Eight of these local chain store managers plotted with the above­mentioned news mediUms and got them to agree not to mention the fact that many lunch counters in Houston were to be opened to Ne­groes. The silence was maintain­ed until the action had already been taken, and this policy put into ef­fect. There is nothing new about this procedure. It is established Com­munist policy and in its literature, the Party advises that secrecy be maintained about such a proposed venture until it is accomplished and those exoerienced in Soviet propaganda claim that it works ninetv nine per cent of the time. If there are enough decent people in Houston,. their foreign-owned According to the Chattanooga, Tennessee, News-Free Press, Lyn­don Johnson is the "Judas goat" who has been selected to lead Southern Democrats to slaughter. stores will be boycotted and left with the type of patronage they seem to prefer. However, in recent years with its industrial develooment, Houston has become thickly dotted with Reds as riff-raff from the East has gradually drifted in. Also they have more than their share of home­grown subversives including some in the -pulpit who have worked faithfully to install Communist pol­icies in matters having to do with racial relations, and now they have achieved partial success. One would think, off-hand, that Houston newspaoers at least, would have felt enough ~ratitude to re­sponsible citizens there who have sustained them throughout the years, to acquaint them with such proposed radical change in local customs, to say nothin~ of the vi­olation of iournalistic ethics which calls for the publishing of impor­tain news for the benefit of the reading public. Suppression of the news is some­thing usually associated with Rus­sia and other countries behind the Iron Curtain and not with the United States where freedom of the press has usually been taken for -granted. Louisiana Governor Seeks End Of Despotic Federal Control President Is Unfortunate In His Choice of Words During the Republican Conven­tion at Chicago, the President was quoted by the Associated Press as havin~ said in an interview to news­men that he would advise all Re­publican candidates. during the coming campaign, to "follow the great middle road and ignore the gutter, left or right." We believe the President is just a little bit late with this advice for it is the opinion of a surprising number of thinking Americans that those pohticians who, in the past seven or eight years have so squan­dered the national resources and run up almost $300,000,000,000.00 in indebtedness for unborn genera­tions to pay, were operating in subterranean channels of such depth that it would require a tall stepladder for them to even climb up to the "gutter." And there are those who consid­er that "gutter" ethics alone dic­tated the invitation to the Com­munist butcher Khrushchev to come to the United States and be royally entertained in establish­ments whose doors, only a few short years ago, were closed to true-blue American patriots who vainly tried to wam Washington politicians of Khrushchev's burial plans for the American people. And even "gutter politics" is in­adequate to explain the repeated robbery of the taxpayers in the name of Foreign Aid to alien coun­tries including Communist satel­lites; for the constant abrogation of the rights and freedoms of the American people, the abolishment of States Rights and the restriction of the God-given liberty of the cit­izens up to the point where a bay­onet could be rammed in their backs for exercising the sovereign­ty granted them in the Constitu­tion. In fact, speaking of "gutters," there is strong crystallized senti­ment in this country to the effect that the "gutter" has been the ceil­ing · in much of the executive, ju­dicial and legislative performance of recent years. Southern newspapers are empha­sizing the waning popularity of Senator Lyndon Johnson which they claim is falling like a baro­meter before a storm. Perhaps his record of olaying both ends against the middle and two-timing both sides is just catching up with him. More and more the charges are being made that "best seller" books, stage shows and motion pictures are sinking farther down into the mire of obscenity, filth and slime and that is true. But there is one thing certain - if people did not read these obscene books or attend the filthy and slimy stage shows and motion pictures, they would soon dry up. Which is further evi­dence that the responsibility for all forms of corruption is the fault of the citizenship. There is not much wrong with this great coun­try, as a matter of fact, that the people themselves could not take care of if they really wanted to. The action of Governor Jimmie H. Davis of Louisiana in interpos­ing the prior authority of that State in public school matters over that of the Federal government will be hailed by every right-thinking American as a step that is over-due in halting the increasing encroach­ment of Washington on the Rights of the States. In August, the Louisiana govern· or took over the administration of the public schools of New Orleans under a Louisiana law which per· mits him to supersede parish school boards to prevent racial integration of their educational system. Louisiana law further empowers the governor to close all public schools of that State in the event even one is integrated. Hanging like a black cloud over the situation, of course, is a Fed· era! judge imbued with the grand4 iose idea of an all-powerful central­ized government in Washington whose dictatorial and un-Constitu­tional edicts he will move heaven and earth trying to carry out. The courageous and statesmanly action of Governor Davi~ .!""~auld be supplemented and stre.,!! · f-aened by that of every other Southern gov­ernor to the end that lhe despotic rule of Federal bigots over matters which belong strictly to the States may forever be put down. Editor's note: As we go to press, a three iudge Federal court has "ordered" that Governor Davis re­turn the schools to the local school board and that the school board open New Orleans schools on an integrated basis. Governor Davis' next action has not yet been de­cided but on the outcome largely depends whether Southern States are actually Sovereign or whether they are dependencies of a power4 ful centralized (!Overnment, or die~ tatorship, in Washington. A book, " Workshop for College Psychology" by Mount, Helmick, Bugenthal and Maltzman, was the source of a questionnaire used in the Ganesha High School in Po­mona, California, recently which shocked and infuriated parents of students in that area. Such ques­tions were asked as: "How much money would you want to spit on a crucifix; eat a pound of human flesh; drink enough to become thoroughly intoxicated; choke a stray cat to death; slit a pig's throat?" A teacher decided on his own responsibility to use the ques~ tionnaire in his class but the name of this degenerate and depraved educator was not given in the press dispatch in the Los Angeles Ex­aminer which told of the incident. Here are a few examples of the flood of foreign products produced by low-wage foreign labor which is displacing much of our own pro­duction, according to For America: Radio sets by the milHons; 4.4 mil­lion tons of steel products; 625,000 foreign cars with a loss of 172,000 jobs to Americans; .1 .229,000 sew­ing machines; jewelry, tile, pottery, plywood, textiles, optical instru­ments, and gloves-all at prices far below those in this country. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE P•g• 7. Does Jimmy Roosevelt Reflect The Official Reflections of a Patriot ·on Sentiment of Congress On Soviet Sabotage? The TraCJic State of the Union Some years ago when the great Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin was relentlessly fighting Communis.t infiltration of the gov­ernment and the anny, he was believed to have come so near to striking pay dirt in high places, that a campaign to "get him" was set in motion by powerful persons In Washington. All Americans remember the disgraceful action of members of the Senate who joined in the Communist·inspired plot against him which resulted in a smear and censure by the Senate which preceded his death under mysterious circumstances only a short time later. In direct contrast to Senator McCarthy's dedicated loyalty to his country and his opposition to its deadliest enemy, we have Representa­tive Jimmy Roosevelt in the other House of Congress who, is turning heaven and earth to get all investigation into Soviet sabotage against this country halted. He is demanding in season and out that the House Un-American Activities Committee be disbanded and that the probes into the activities of Communist agents who are operating in droves in the United States be stopped and sabotage in this country be allowed to proceed without interruption. We realize that Mr. Roosevelt's pro-Communist proclivities are in­herited and that it is perhaps difficult for him to restrain them. His father's record along this line is written in the official accounts of treaties, executive agreements and legislation for all to read. His mother, while proclaiming from one side of her mouth that she is opposed to Communism, freely spouts Communist doctrine from the other side of her rather ample vocal organ, and the son would in the nature of things be expected to do likewise. But, at the same time, it seems to us rather peculiar that a member of the Congress of the United States-whose citizens the Communists have sworn to "bury"-should be allowed to operate right on the floor of the House as the spokesman for the Soviet undertakers and to oppose all efforts of loyal Americans to thwart their plans for our interment. By doing nothing to discourage or check Mr. Roosevelt's subversive activities, does the Congress actually mean to proclaim to the world that when one of its members actively opposes Soviet sabotage against the United States, he will be smeared, censured and hounded to his death but if he openly champions the right of Communists ta infiltrate American government without hindrance, he wiJI be allowed to maintain his membership in that body in good standing? If this is the official policy of the Congress of the United States, it is high time the taxpayers who pay their salaries were informed of that fact. Trujillo Is Anti-Communist So We Sever Relations With Dominican Republic! The Dominican Republic is about the last stronghold of Anti-Com­munism in the Latin American states, and its fight on this scourge is relentless and unremitting. So the American State Depart· ment in Washington announces that this country has broken off diplomatic relations with the Do­minican Republic, a type of action we have not taken with any other country almost within memory. When asked recently what about Cuba and our relations with that country, the President replied that it was not the policy of the Amer­ican government to interfere in the internal affairs of other nations. Why, then, the exception in the case of the Dominican Republic? What has the Dominican Republic done to this country that we should sever relations with them but not with Russia, Cuba and other Com­munist countries? The Dominican Republic has not sent its agents into the United States to spy, commit sabotage or steal our military secrets. They have not confiscated American holdings nor shot down American planes and held American citizens as hostages. They have not mur­dered thousands of helpless Hun­garians and then defied the United Nations to do anything about it. They haven't threatened to bury the people of the United States or sent their propagandists to this country or infiltrated the schools, churches and agencies of govern· ment of the United States with sub­versive, un-American doctrines. Their only sin, so far as we can see, is that the Dominican Repub­lic fights Communism twenty-four hours a day and shows no mercy to this deadly enemy of civiliza­tion. It is tr'ue that the Dominican Re­public is a dictatorship and has an undisputed Dictator in control there. But how about Mr. Khrushchev, Mr. Castro, Mr. Tito et al with whom we have not only not broken relations but who have been on the receiving end of our Foreign Aid and Lend Lease programs? Were they put in office by means of free elections? Is an explanation to the Ameri­can people in order or will they take this nauseous inconsistency with nothing more than a shrug and a lifted eyebrow? For years there have been many jokes about "red tape" in the trans­actions of the State Department and other agencies of the Federal government but the jokes are growing stale now that it is real­ized that the tape really is RED. The following was prepared ex~ elusively for the Southern Con~ servative by Mr. John J . Synan, member of the staff of Human Events in Washington, a public service organization whose bulle­tins discussing current political personalities and happenings con­stitute some of the most powerful writing of the age! It isn't that I - any more than you - prefer to sit with my face hung long, like a sausage for sale. Yet, here it hangs and I see noth­ing in the offing that will alleviate what is bothering me; I see nothing to bring a smile to the face of a man who loves his -country. Perhaps I should not fret, but I do. It may be, as a child I was condi­tioned to fret, perhaps I listened too well to the story told me of Washington·s reply ("I can•t quit".) when urged to desert his Contin­entals. Perhaps my sad distaste for what I see grew from that story or from the tales I was told of Lee's love of his - and my - state. Or from the tattered man of the First Marines who talked to me of orchid roots from the Canal -and he lying there on the flat of his back and saying nothing of the rot that was slipping the flesh from his bones. Nor did he ever and now he· aoesn't talk of his orchids-to­be, though his Mother tends their reality as she tends his memory. And as I tend mine. I love my country and though it is not fashionable to admit it, I do admit it and I confess I have it in my heart to destroy the political power of those who are changing my land from what I knew to some­thing I detest. Deep in my heart. And though I don't like to say it, I do know a growing contempt for those with whom I mingle, here on Capitol Hill, the elected repre­sentatives of my people. I do, for they choose to ignore a symptom of what is bothering me, the little fester which, of recent weeks has been recurring at our feet, just be­low The Hill, on The Mall. There, these recent Sundays, a benighted, cashiered Navy officer regularly holds forth as some sort of comic-opera Fuhrer and around him- like coyotes circling a bayed baboon - crowd wild-eyed men who spit obscenities; the alien breed, the Commies. Inevitably, to'rds dusk, the police close the Beginning soon, gullible Ameri­cans are going to be drenched with a heavy barrage of subversive prop­aganda which will be hurled at them via the television networks, radio and some segments of the press. This will be done under pro­grams and articles called "informa­tional" material and reputedly will be offered as a public service. The Objective, of course, is to finish the demolition job against Consti­tutional Government which has been carried on effectivelv for many years and to prepare thC oeo­ple of the United States for the takeover by One-World Govern­ment. show my friends on The Hill never see and I grow morose. Is it proposed that I sit, inactive, forever? Is it that my Conservative philosophy, my innate love of the rule of law, will compel me to rely on "duly constituted authority" un· til there is no constituted authority? Already I have seen the elemen­tary principles of my republican form of government made a traves~ ty. I have seen the glib artists of deceit change the meaning of the once-glorious word, "Freedom," in~ to a mental teat for covetous suck­ing. And I don't like any part of what I see. And now comes the "Kennedy Revolution," promising to strip from me my last treasured remnant of personal responsibility, my right to fend for myself. They would de­humanize me, make of me some­thing they will feed well, house well and stuff with medicines of their making. Well, I don't want their nos­trums. True, their "new" revolu· tion may be forced upon me - sit· ting as I am - but I shall go on preferring my own ineptness. And I am inept, I have never been mort­gage free in my life. Still, I shall continue to prefer my pink dream of a self-made tomorrow though I know, within me, poverty is more likely my end. Perhaps there are no longer enough men who feel as 1 feel, perhaps - as I hear - decadence is everywhere. And when I am put to the ultimate test, I too shaH conform. Perhaps, but somehow I doubt it. On those occasions when this thing grows too strong for me, I cross the Potomac and seek an army post I know and there gaze at the largest American flag I have ever seen flying from a mast. Some~ how it helps. And when the mood is on me, heavy, I push on to Richmond to visit the church where Henry spoke. En route I pass Quantico where my stone Marines eternally ram home the colors they raised on lwo. And as I go from one spot of my choice to another, my long face and I, I pray: God, somehow, res~ cue us. And on my way back from Rich­mond I pass the Pentagon. And I wonder that the vauntt:d comput­ers banked there in great array, I wonder they don't give off the an~ swer my poor, addled, patriotic wits give me. Call them what you will, but the fact remains that any and every one who advocates the abolishment of the House Un-American Activi~ ties Committee which seeks to pro~ teet this country from Communist infiltration, is a t raitor to the United States. They may not be members of the Communist Party but they are worse for they are doing more to advance the Com­munist cause than outright card~ carrying members. Authorities on the subiect of tax­ation say that there are 151 sep­arate taxes levied on a loaf of bread, the staff of life. Page S Texas Not Represented At Los Angeles or Chicago From reactions we have observ· ed, we believe the great majority of Texas citizens are thoroughly disgusted with those supposed to represent the Lone Star State at both the Democratic and Republi­can conventions. As a matter of fact Texas, along with other States of the South had no representation at either con­vention. This stems from the fact that the conventions of both par­ties are composed of local politi­cians who are hand-picked and the responsible elements of the var­ious communities simply are not included. ~J.-his, of course. is the fault of the people who seldom, if ever, at­tend a precinct convention and that is where the delegations to Na­tional Conventions originate. The result is that small-time politicians with axes to grind, or who are anx­ious for a ride on the band-wagon, wind up as delegates when as a matter of fact they represent no­body but themselves. At Los Angeles, there was not a voice raised against the odious and unspeakable Civil Rights plank. The Governor, members of Con­gress and all the other delegates cowered in the corner and didn't dare speak out in protest against this or any other plank because they feared it would hurt the chances of their candidate being nominated for the Presidency al­though, as it turned out, he never had a chance to begin with a nd was only too willing to grab eager­ly at the caboose as Kennedy's well-oiled train rolled by. At Chicago Republican delegates from Texas made half-hearted pro­tests against the Civil Rights plank which is almost identical to that of the Democrats but let themselves be sweet-talked out of taking the fight to the floor of the conven­tion, and after a few sparring mat­ches, went docilely along with the liberals and swallowed everything, Civil Ri~hts plank and all. Priv~te Property and Due Process of Law (Daily Oklahoman) Indirectly the 1960 Democratic platform gives its blessing to the widespread sit-in racial demonstra­tions at lunch counters. As the "party of Jefferson" the Democrats contend that "the peace­ful demonstrations for first class citizenship which have recently ta­ken place in many parts of this country are a sign to all of us to make good at long last the guar­antees of our constitution. Although generally inviting pub­lic patronage lunch counter pro­prietors are nevertheless owners of private property. They don't for­feit their property rights when they invite public patronage. Since the constitution is being invoked in this conm~ction it ought to be remem­bered also that constitutionally no person may be deprived of his prop­erty without due process of law. Forcible dispossession is what hap­pens when all the seats in an eat­ing establishment are pre-empted by people more interested in prov­ing a point than in eating. THE SOUTHERN CONSERVATIVE WILL PHONY STRUCTURE Of "HUMAN BROTHERHOOD" COME TUMBLING DOWN? Even though it is generally believed that the national election will be close, we are going to stick our neck out and predict the outcome. Our assumption is not based on any political consideration but on human prejudice, about which we've heard so much in recent years. We predict that Kennedy will lose not for the justifiable reason that he is a Socialist but for the immaterial reason of his religious faith. As a non-Catholic, we have observed over the years that there Is more prejudice in attitudes toward Catholicism than attends any _oth~r subject on the face of the earth. And no segment of the populatton 15 more permeated with prejudice of this type than members of the clergy who thunder from the pulpit against "prejudice" insofar as it affects Negroes and the social mixing of the races, but are almost totally devoid of this quality as it relates to the manner in which a man makes his prayer. Some years ago the public press was all cluttered up with accounts of the setting up of certain "National Councils" dedicated to "Human Brotherhood" accompanied by pictures showing leaders of three differ­ent religious faiths with their arms intertwined and oozing "Brother4 hood" all over the place. Being an avid student of subversive propaganda, we recognized this movement for just that and said so. It was the beginning of the heavy drive for integration of Whites and Negroes in schools, churches and other institutions and was intended to eliminate uprejudice" so far as Negroes were concerned but had no bearing on "prejudice" against white Christians. In the Southern Conservative for March, 1955, we said, in part, con4 cerning this subject: "All right, let's see how this new 'Brotherhood' scheme would work in a matter of practical and realistic politics. "Let us suppose, for example, that one of the major political parties should take the Constitution at its word and assume that complete religious freedom prevails in this country. Let's say that one of those two major parties at its convention nominates a man who happens to be a Catholic. "Under those circumstances, how long does any one think that the 'Brotherhood' racket would hold together and 'prejudice' re­main buried. "The Welkins would ring with denunciations, charges and countercharges as Protestant preachers warned all who would listen that the Pope was preparing to pull up stakes in Rome and move into the White House. 'Tolerance' would fly out the window and 'prejudice' would be back on the throne again and especially within the circles of those pious clergymen now shouting the loudest for 'Universal Brotherhood' and for the elimination of prejudice and intolerance in human relations." It was five years ago when we wrote the above but we are con­vinced that, in the meantime, there has been no dimunition of "prejudice" on the part of the Protestant clergy except as it relates to the social mixing of Negroes and whites, and that theii· intolerance of non-Protest­ants is stiii intact in all its fervid bitterness. So, come election day, we are anticipating that the good Baptist, Methodist and other Protestant brethren will come crawling out of the woodwork and line up for the fray. Their fight won't be against Kennedy on account of his being a Socialist because most of them are Socialists themselves; their massed assault will be on the "Pope of Rome." We are not betting on Kennedy losing; we are merely betting on "prejudice" winning. Since we are not a Catholic and since we do not intend to vote for either of the candidates for President, we cannot be accused of bias or 44prejudice" in our observations. We are merely reporting a situation as we believe it to exist and we could be right or we could be one hundred per cent wrong. Only time will tell. A woman reader in Detroit writes We are informed by an Austin us: "If I knew as much as you do citizen that when local people there about what is going on in Washing- _recently formed a committee and ton and could put words together went before the City Council to like you can to express my opinion request that that body rid the of it all, I would be the happiest city's news stands of lewd litera­person in the world." The lady is ture, they were confronted by a very much mistaken. If she knew group of University of Texas pro­as mucn about the double-crossing, fessors who were there to defend betrayal and downright treason on the sale of the obscene material the part of those trusted as cus- and who declared that efforts to todians of the Republic as we are suppress it were "Un-American compelled to know from constant and opposed to freedom of the reading and study of the record, press." These professors are prob­she would be the most unhappy ably not Communist Party mem­person in the world. There is noth- bers although serving the Com­ing but heartbreak involved in the munist cause. One of the major deliberate destruction of a great aims of the Soviets is to pollute nation and the more any patriotic the minds of youth with obscene cilizen knows of the details, the literature. Communist scum who greater his grief and discourage- purvey this filth are no worse than ment. college professors who defend it. Majority of Tennesseeans Have Lost Right to Complain One of the most forceful exam­ples that the American Republic and Constitutional Government are being destroyed from within was afforded in the recent election in Tennessee. Estes Kefauver, running for re .. election to the Senate from the Volunteer State has one of the worst voting records of any mem­ber of that body, according to the ACA INDEX so far as supporting Constitutional principles of the American Republic is concerned. During the past five years, he has voted against Constitutional Gov .. ernment 94 per cent of the time, and against Socialistic measures only 6 per cent. He is universally recognized as one of the willing tools of Inter­nationalists and One-Worlders and of Labor Unions and has consist­ently voted against the interests of the industrial and business con .. cerns of his own State. And yet the people of Tennes­see overwhelmingly reelected h1m thereby putting the stamp of ap· proval on the record which he has set up in the Upper House of Con~ gress as a devotee of Karl Marx: and champion of National Social· ism. The citizens of Tennessee had a perfect right to do this as they have not yet been completely disfran .. chised, but by their majority ac­tion in the matter, they have lost their right to complain of the fright· ening advance of the World Con .. spiracy in its campaign to take over the United States. FEDERAL DICTATORSHIP OR STATES RIGHTS MAY COME TO SHOWDOWN How long the Federal judiciary can continue to ride roughshod ov­er the rights of the Sovereign States may be coming to a showdown in Alabama where there is a legal stalemate between State Circuit Judge Walter B. Jones, and U. S. District Judge Frank M. Johnson. The Board of Registrars in Mont­gomery, very properly, refused to surrender voting records to Attor­ney General William P. Rogers who wanted to do a little plain and fan· cy snooping around the Montgom­ery Court House to see if, by some chance, some Negro had been de­prived of his right to vote. Judge Jones issued an injunction prohibiting Federal agents from in­specting the records in Montgom· ery or any other Alabama County. Like a bull crashing into a china shop, Federal Judge Johnson barg­ed in and ordered the Montgomery records turned over to Federal snoopers, and there ·the matter stands. The outcome depends, of course. on whether the Constitution stands up and the various States can main­tain the right to operate their own election machinery or whether a complete Federal dictatorship is already in operation with total and complete authority to cancel laws passed by the Legislatures of the several States, thereby making the Tenth Amendment to the American Constitution wholly in­operative without taking the trouble to repeal it.
