A “tie-up between Father Coughlin and the German-American Bund” is charged by William A. Mueller in Look magazine. “Father Coughlin tacitly admits the partnership by including in his speeches sentences identical in tone and structure with those of Goebbels, Nazi minister of propaganda, “the writer asserts. He has also quoted sources found in World Service, Nazi propaganda handout. His Social Justice is sold at Bund meetings. Edward B. Fitch of 21 Sherman Avenue, New York City member of the Coughlinbacked Christian Front, told me he sold Social Justice at the Bund’s nearby Camp Nordland all last Summer.”
