Samuel Grafton declared today in his New York Post column that with anti-Fascist feeling at its peak in the United States, “the hatred of Hitler and Mussolini must be channeled against the home elements of the Fascist complex; against our own tin horn Napoleons, our racists, our enemies of the people.”

Warning that efforts were already being made to turn anti-Fascist feeling into a weapon against liberalism, Grafton said; “It must be explained to the people so that they will understand it, Thus; ‘You hate Hitler. What, then, do you think of Thorrlow, of Pulley, of Father Coughlin?'”
