Mcfadden Renews Attack on Jews, Roosevelt

Download PDF for this date

A new blast of anti-Jewish propaganda was sent through the mails today from the Mayflower Hotel here by Louis T. McFadden, who has announced his candidacy for the presidency of the United States in the 1936 elections on an anti-Jewish platform.

The propaganda distributed by the office of ex-Congressman McFadden includes a “warning to Jewry,” announcing that “alienism must be destroyed” in the United States.

At the same time ex-Congressman McFadden issued a proclamation today urging that Jews “be kept out of control of the Republican Party.”

Addressing himself to “American Gentiles with any money left,” McFadden presents his election program as a “constructive ‘anti’ program” directed chiefly against the Jews, the League of Nations, Communism and foreign alliances. The official platform which Mr. Fadden announces, urges a severe fight against the “Jewish League of Nations,” “Jewish economics,” “Jewish international bankers” and proclaims “Christianity instead of Judaism.”

The propaganda sent out by Mr. McFadden also contains bitter attacks against President Roosevelt and terms the New Deal a “Communistic Jew Deal.”

Mr. McFadden announces officially that the national office of his campaign headquarters is in the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, the manager of which recently denied the existence of such an office in his hotel.
