Anti-semitic Paper Boasts It Helped Elect Conservatives

August 3, 1930
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Under the caption of “Tascherau Next,” the anti-Semitic French-Canadian weekly, “Le Goglu,” hails with delight the great victory of the Conservative Party in Monday’s national elections, and states that the “patriotic” Goglu order consisting of 62,000 members will now endeavor to oust the provincial Liberal government headed by Premier Tascherau and “its friends the Jews.”

“Le Goglu” boasts that the Goglu order helped to elect more than a score of Conservative candidates in the province of Quebec, which has always been a Liberal stronghold. The current issue of “Le Goglu” is full of malign accusations against the Jews, and contains a cartoon showing the Jews “robbing the safe of the Catholic school commission for funds to educate Jewish children.”
