Presidential Campaign Utilized to Spread Anti-jewish Propaganda

Download PDF for this date

Anti-Jewish elements are utilizing the Presidential election campaign to disseminate anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist propaganda, it was established here today when Republican national committeemen received “Draft MacArthur” publicity.

The material said that “the Zionists, through a controlled press, are ‘hell bent’ on naming the candidates in the Republican Party also, but this must be avoided by every means, since the Zionists, a well organized political group with a world-wide Marxist program, have succeeded in placing their representatives in key positions throughout the government structure.”

The publicity material, which was prepared by F.C. Sammons, director of the West Virginia Anti-Communist League, said that the “appointees of the Zionists are all un-American and many are foreign born. And all that is needed for America to become a Marxist satellite country is to permit the Zionists to continue to name our candidates.”
