COMMUNIST REVOLUTION in the STREETS
by Gary Allen
KING OF AMERICA
He is a winner of a Nobel "peace" prize, but he is
continually at war with the white man. He presents himself
as a Christian minister, but J. Edgar Hoover has called him
the "most notorious liar in the country." Many are
wondering what is behind the man whom some people
call...“King of America”

Anarchy USA: In the Name of Civil Rights - A documentary
demonstrating how the Communists Conspiracy was behind
The Civil Rights Movement. G. Edward Griffin narrating.
THERE IS NO living American today who has been praised as uncritically,
by the highest officials in the federal government, radio and television
commentators and leading daily newspapers as the Reverend Dr. Martin
Luther King. King has been named Man Of the Year by national magazines
and has been the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize. His image as a noble
crusader for "freedom" and "justice" through nonviolence makes him almost
immune to criticism.
Any factual information on Reverend King that would tend to muddy his
shining image is simply ignored by most of the major vehicles of the mass
media. The inference is that any criticism of King must be of a racist nature.
But the legitimate criticisms of King have nothing to do with the Negro race
which suffers the consequences of King’s actions. The American public is
starting to look at the other side of the King’s coin, looking to see whether
the coin may be minted in Moscow.
Gil Green, at one time a top Communist functionary in the United States,
explained the strategy for subverting the Negro in the South this way:
...in the South, especially for the Negro youth, the church is the center
of cultural and social activities. It is here that we must work. By
building our units in the church organizations, we can also improve
our work under the illegal conditions, as it will be easier to work in
the church organizations. . . these can become legal covers for our
work in the South. (Manning Johnson, Color, Communism and
Common Sense, American Opinion, 1963, p. 17.)
In order to understand King’s role in the revolutionary scheme of things it is
necessary to investigate the beliefs and backgrounds of some of the
individuals and organizations who have supported King while promoting
him to the position of Number-One-Civil-Rights-Leader-in-America.
The first organization—and perhaps the one that has been, more than any
other, responsible for elevating King to his current Olympian heights—is the
Southern Conference Education Fund (SCEF). Yet most Americans have
never heard of the SCEF. This organization is an outgrowth of an earlier
one, the Southern Conference for Human Welfare. In 1944, a congressional
committee characterized the Southern Conference for Human Welfare in
Careful examination of its official publication and its activities will
disclose that the Conference is being used to further Soviet policy.
Key posts are in most instances controlled by persons whose record is
faithful to the line of the Communist Party. (Special Committee on
Un-American Activities, Hearings on ClO Political Action
Committee, March 29, 1944, p. 147.)
Cited again in similar terms in 1947, the Southern Conference for Human
Welfare did a quick-change act and reappeared in 1948 as the Southern
Conference Educational Fund. Surprise. The organization maintained the
same headquarters, the same address, the same telephone number, the same
publication, the same executive director, and virtually the same slate of
officers! (Activities of the SCEF,, Inc., LA, part 1, Joint Legislative
Committee on Un-American Activities, State of Louisiana, 1968, p. 2.)
The Senate Internal Security Subcommittee in 1954 described SCEF as "one
of the Communist transmission belts" for the South—an organization
through which the Communists send forth the Party line. (SCEF Hearings,
Committee on the Judiciary, U.S. Senate, 1954, p. v.)
Since SCEF’s leaders have been described as being "faithful to the line of
the Communist Party," it is important that people know who they are and
what connection they have with the civil rights movement.
IDENTIFIED COMMUNIST James Dombrowski is Executive Director,
SCEF, named by government agency as Communist front. Dombrowski
and SCEF have worked closely with King and helped to finance him
The Executive Director of SCEF is Dr. James Dombrowski, a man who
has approximately sixty citations from government investigating bodies of
affiliation with various Communist fronts or Communist projects. Paul
Crouch, who defected from Communism after serving for many years as
the top U.S. Communist in the South, and who taught Revolution and
subversion for the Communists in Moscow, testified before the Senate
Internal Security Subcommittee as follows:
"Dr. Dombrowski told me on several occasions that he preferred to be
called a Left Socialist rather than a Communist; that he could serve
the revolutionary movement better under the Socialist label than the
Communist label." (SCEF, p. 49.)
Asked if that was a customary practice among top-flight Soviet operators,
Crouch answered, "Yes sir."
Working with Dombrowski in SCEF is its Field Secretary, Carl Braden.
In 1954 Braden was convicted and sentenced to fifteen years in prison for
bombing the home of a Negro who had just moved into a white
neighborhood and for attempting to place the blame on the Caucasian
neighbors. Braden was released from jail when the Warren court declared all
state sedition laws void.
IDENTIFIED COMMUNIST Carl Braden is CP organizer in the South.
Braden was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for bombing home of
Negro and attempting to place blame on whites. This is frequent
During Carl Braden’s trial for sedition, he and his wife Anne were
identified as Communist agents by Alberta Ahearn, an undercover FBI
agent who was surfaced from the Communist Party to testify in court
against the Bradens. Alberta Ahearn later told a Senate Committee that
Carl Braden was a southern district organizer for the Communist
Party. (Ibid., p. 84—85.)
Carl Braden was a national sponsor of the notorious Fair Play For Cuba
Committee which spawned the assassinator of President John F. Kennedy,
Marxist Lee Harvey Oswald.
The President of SCEF is the Reverend Fred Shuttlesworth, an ex-
convict who according to federal government files has been involved in
seven Communist-front activities since 1960. The interlocking structure
which pervades the entire civil rights movement is demonstrated here by the
fact that Shuttlesworth serves as a link between the Communist SCEF and
Martin Luther King’s organization, the Southern Christian Leadership
Conference. Shuttlesworth is Vice President of King’s organization.
REVEREND FRED SHUTTLESWORTH, an ex-convict arrested for
bootlegging is President of SCEF, serves as link between Communist
front and King’s SCLC by virtue of fact Shuttlesworth is also Vice
President of SCLC
The Reverend Shuttlesworth replaced Aubrey Williams as President of
SCEF. Williams until his recent death was also Chairman of the National
Committee to Abolish the House Un-American Activities Committee,
(sic), a Communist front of which Martin Luther King is a leading member.
The Chairman of this Committee is Frank Wilkinson, who has been
identified, in sworn testimony by an undercover FBI agent, as a member of
the Communist Party.
Williams was Lyndon Johnson’s boss in the National Youth
Administration in the nineteen-thirties. In 1945 the United States Senate
rejected Williams’ appointment as administrator of the Rural Electrification
Administration after his affiliations with the Communist apparatus had been
placed in the record. In April of 1954, at hearings held in New Orleans by
the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, Aubrey Williams was
identified as a Communist Party member by one witness who had been
in the Party and was identified by another witness at the time as one
who accepted Communist Party discipline. (Activities, Part I, pp. 13, 14.)
Despite this, President Johnson visited Williams in his home just after the
assassination of President Kennedy!

LOUISVILLE DIV. POLICE
IDENTIFIED COMMUNIST Anne Braden is, like husband Carl, a
Communist organizer for the South. Carl Braden was released from
prison when Warren Supreme Court declared all state sedition laws
When the New Orleans Police raided the Communist SCEF headquarters in
1961, they seized a large amount of photostats of correspondence, cancelled
checks, and other documentation showing that King had been working very
closely with the Communist SCEF. A letter from King to Communist Anne
Braden dated October 7, 1959, urges Anne and her husband Carl, the
Communist Party organizer in the South, to become permanently associated
with his organization. Another letter dated September 28, 1960, from Carl
Braden to fellow Communist, James Dombrowski, states that King is
anxious for leadership and staff meetings between SCLC and SCEF so they
can work together more effectively. (Activities, Part II, p. 81.) Another
communique between these two Communists indicates that Braden was
running the press releases for King’s organization. (Ibid.)
The New Orleans Police also discovered in the files of the Communist SCEF
a photograph of King speaking at an SCLC meeting. Three persons in the
background of the photo are the three Communists who run SCEF, Carl and
Anne Braden and James Dombrowski. Among other evidence linking King
with this Communist organization is a cancelled check made out to Dr.
Martin Luther King, dated March 7, 1963.
Some of the folks want me to come over to Albany, Ga., and see is we can
start something there as we have done hare— contact between the white

the library step by step and is getting better acquainted with each other. They
are laying plans for other projects, once they get the library opened--or even
while they are (censored) working on it.
Yesterday I saw Martin King, Wyatt Walker, and Jim Wood in
Atlanta. They hope that everybody from SCEF can attend their
annual meeting in Shreveport from Oct. 11 to l3. I thought perhaps
you might be able to go, as I don’t see how I can make it. I gave them
some pointers on how to (censored) construct their news releases
so that they will be used. They can't understand why our releases are
used and theirs are not - They are all very anxious to have the meeting
of SCEF and SCLC leadership and staff so that we can all work
together more effectively. People at the Student Nonviolent
Coordinating Committee are also most anxious to work with us and to
seek our help in working out a program, Jane Stembridge is looking
forward to a session with Anne during the SNOC meeting Oct. 14

BRADEN LETTER of September 28, 1960 to fellow Communist James
Dombrowski reveals that Martin Luther King wants to work closely
with the Communists of SCEF. The letter was picked up by the New
Orleans Police in a raid on SCEF headquarters. Highlander Folk School
The second organization that helped propel Martin Luther King into his
reign as recent monarch of the civil rights movement was the
Highlander Folk School of Monteagle, Tennessee. Highlander had its
charter revoked by a Tennessee court after State Police raided the school and
made arrests for illegal possession of liquor, public drunkenness and
disorderly conduct. The school was reopened as the Highlander Center in
Knoxville, with Martin Luther King as a sponsor. The Highlander School is
closely connected with the Communist SCEF and has served as a training
school for the Communists in the fields of civil rights and labor agitation for
over thirty years.
The Highlander Folk School was founded in 1932 by Myles Horton and
Don West, who was joined later that year by James Dombrowski upon
the latter’s return from Russia. Paul Crouch, for over twenty years the top
Communist official in the southern United States, testified before a United
States Senate Committee, "the Highlander Folk School is operated
ostensibly as an independent labor school, but actually is working in close
cooperation with the Communist Party." (SCEF, p. 47.)
Myles Horton, Eleanor Roosevelt,
and Jim Stokely, a writer from
Newport, Tennessee. Highlander
MEMBER OF YOUNG COMMUNIST LEAGUE, Myles Horton,
founder of Communist training operation known as Highlander Folk
School and located in Tennessee.
Before founding the Highlander Folk School, Myles Horton—a member of
the Young Communist League—was operating Commonwealth College in
Mena, Arkansas. Commonwealth College was controlled by the Peoples
Institute of Applied Religion, which had been organized by the Communist
Party. (William Nolan, Communism Versus The Negro, Chicago, Henry
Regnery Co., 1951, pp. 129—131.)
The purpose of Commonwealth College was to prepare people to infiltrate
and influence the churches in the strongly religious South, indoctrinating
them with Marxism expressed in religious jargon. Commonwealth College
was dosed by the state of Arkansas because it showed a lack of discretion.
Among other odd practices, it flew the hammer and sickle flag of
The best known meeting ever to take place at the Highlander Folk School
occurred over the Labor Day weekend in 1957. Assembled for a three-day
training session in civil disobedience were the key civil rights leaders in the
South, including representatives of the Communist Party and many
individuals with long records of service to the Communist cause. A
famous visitor was folk singer Pete Seeger, an identified Communist, who
provided entertainment for the assembled "socially conscious" citizens that
weekend. Seeger has been active in the civil rights movement for many
years and composed the modem lyrics to the song, "We Shall Overcome,"
the battle hymn of the civil rights street Revolutionaries and their
companions of the New Left.

Since the individuals involved with SCEF and the Highlander School
form a virtual honor roll of Communists, one wonders why King has
continued to work with and accept support from these individuals and
has publicity defended them against all attacks. It could be that King is
naive. However, many Americans find it is difficult to believe that a man
could build an organization the size of King’s and obtain the immense
influence and prestige that King has-in the highest circles of government-
and be naive. American citizens should ask themselves why-since all of this
information is publicly available-have not Life, Look,
Time and Newsweek and CBS, NBC and ABC informed the American public
of these facts?
King's judgment, however, have not been restricted merely to associations
with the Communists and SCEF and Highlander Folk School. In 1955, King
hired Bayard Rustin as a secretary and "advisor." King has described
Rustin as "a brilliant, efficient and dedicated organizer and one of the best
and most persuasive interpreters of nonviolence."
(Washington Post, August 11, 1961) One of Rustin’s interpretations of
"nonviolence" was given in Richmond, Virginia in September 1963, when
he suggested "that more bloody Negro suffering should be encouraged so
that squeamish northern Negroes would be horrified into line …
(Richmond News Leader, September 27, 1963.)
What is there in Rustin’s background that qualifies him for the position of
advisor to the learned Dr. King? Rustin has publicly admitted that he was for
many years a paid organizer for the Young Communist League, the
predecessor to the current Communist W. E. B. DuBois Clubs. The
purpose of the Young Communist League was to recruit young people into
the Communist Party. Rustin has also served as Field Secretary for CORE.
During World War II he became a pacifist and served 28 months-for draft
evasion-in federal prisons at Ashland, Kentucky and Lewisburg,
Pennsylvania. ("Allen-Scott Report", August 16, 1963)
In February 1957, while on the payroll of Martin Luther King, Rustin
attended the National Convention of the Communist Party USA,
ostensibly as a "non-Communist" observer. Following the convention Rustin
signed a statement, which was reproduced in the Communist
newspaper, The Worker, formerly Daily Worker, stating:
The sessions of the convention were democratically conducted with
vigorous discussion of all matters brought to the floor. There were
many indications that no individual or group was in a position to
control the convention. (Daily Worker, February 25, 1957, p. 1.)
Perhaps Bayard Rustin too is naive. Rustin, however, is obviously not naive
about all things. If you happen to be browsing through the arrest files of the
Pasadena Police Department and come across arrest record No. 33914 you
will find that Rustin was arrested and pleaded guilty in 1953 to homosexual
activities with two other men in an automobile. (Congressional
Record, August 7, 1963.)
Bayard Rustin, according to liberal columnists Evans and Novak, "has never
disguised his doctrinaire Socialist view that the root of the Negro’s misery is
the American economic system." (Philadelphia Inquirer, November 24,
Rustin never makes any pretense of hiding his Marxist beliefs or his
desire to institute them through political power. He has written:
The Negro struggle for equality in America is essentially
revolutionary. . . but the term revolutionary as I am using it does not
connote violence; it refers to the qualitative transformation of
fundamental institutions, more or less rapidly, to the point where the
social and economic structure which they comprise can no longer be
said to be the same.... We can only conclude that we are talking about
the refashioning of our political economy.... How are these radical
objectives to be achieved? The answer is simple, deceptively so:
through political power. Neither the Civil Rights movement nor the
country’s 20 million black people can win political power alone. We
need allies-a coalition of progressive forces which will become the
effective political majority of the United States. I speak of the
coalition which staged the March On Washington, passed the Civil
Rights Act, and laid the basis for the Johnson landslide-Negroes,
trade unionists, liberals and religious
groups. (Commentary, February 1965.)
Rustin is probably best known for his work in organizing the "March On
Washington" in 1963. In fact, A. Philip Randolph, the leader of the
march, claimed, "Mr. Rustin is Mr. March on Washington himself".
Randolph, a former Socialist party candidate for political office, has
had a long career as an active fronter for the Communists. At the time of
the March On Washington, co-sponsored by Walter Reuther and the United
Auto Workers, Young Communist Leaguer Bayard Rustin and Socialist A.
Philip Randolph had their pictures on the cover
of Life magazine. Life, however, neglected to mention that both of these men
had dedicated their lives to rebuilding Uncle Sam in the image of Karl Marx.
Although Rustin officially left King’s employ in 1960, he has remained
with King as an "advisor" and participates in most of King’s SCLC
functions. Rustin accompanied King to Norway for King’s acceptance of
the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, and was also with King when he
deplaned in Los Angeles following the Watts Rebellion in August 1965.
Rustin had been with King at the SCLC convention in Jackson,
In 1960, when Rustin ceased to be a full-time advisor to Dr. King, he was
replaced later in the year by a man sometimes known as Hunter Pitts
O’Dell. O’Dell sometimes operates under the names of Jack H. O’Dell; at
other times, John Vesey or Ben Jones. O’Dell does, however, know what he
is doing. Information received by the House Committee on Un-American
Activities revealed that O’Dell was in fact the district organizer for the
Communist Party in New Orleans. (St. Louis Globe Democrat, October
It was later revealed that O’Dell had been elected to the National
Committee of the Communist Party. At the time that it was revealed
O’Dell was an officer in the Communist Party; he was on King’s payroll as
an advisor and served in the top administrative slot in King’s
organization. When an individualistic newspaper pointed this out, Dr. King
"fired" O’Dell. Dr. King explained that O’Dell "may have had some
connection in the past, but we were convinced that he had renounced them
and had become committed to the Christian philosophy of nonviolence in
dealing with America’s social injustices." (Richmond News
Leader, September 27, 1963.)
In all candor it must be said that Dr. King cribbed a bit on the commandment
"Thou shall not bear false witness" when he said that he had "fired" O’Dell.
Really what he did was transfer O’Dell to another office.
Wherever King travels, North or South, East or West, he finds police
brutality under every bed, If King is correct, virtually all policemen
everywhere are by nature a brutal and vicious lot. When King arrived in Los
Angeles with his "advisor" Bayard Rustin, as the flames of four days of
insurrection were dying down, King blamed the riots on police brutality.
Mayor Sam Yorty of Los Angeles contradicted King. Said he:
For some time there existed a world wide subversive campaign to
stigmatize all police as brutal. The cry of brutality has been shouted
all over the world by Communists, dupes and demagogues
irrespective of the facts. Such a campaign has been vigorously pushed
here in Los Angeles. (Los Angeles Times, August 18, 1965, p. 3.)
Why are the police a special target of the Communists and for the Reverend
King? The local police comprise America’s first line of defense. They deal
with the Communist Revolutionaries at the local level and are responsible
for the protection of the lives and property of local citizens. The Senate
Internal Security Subcommittee, in its report, A Communist Plot Against
The Free World Police, states:
Our police are among the foremost guardians of freedom and thus a
major target of the Communists. A smear campaign attempted to
discredit the leaders among the rank and file.... The Communist press
specializes in playing up and discrediting all police action against
rioters and mobs.
The May 1950 issue of Political Affairs, the theoretical journal of the
Communist Party, declared:
A specific movement against police brutality is urgently necessary. ..
There must be a public investigation into every police department and
into the brutal conduct of police officers by Citizens’ Committees.
Clearly, this fight against police brutality cannot be handled on a
simple case to case basis. The magnitude of the issue requires the
most rapid building of the broadest front of Negro organizations.
In other words, the Communists are demanding civilian police review
boards. Coincidentally, King always demands police review boards. Maybe
it is advice that he gets from Hunter Pitts O’Dell, Bayard Rustin or Wyatt
Tee Walker. Could it be that Dr. King is naive?
Among other occasions on which King has shown poor judgment is King’s
use of the mailing plates of the National Guardian newspaper in a campaign
to solicit funds for the SCLC. The National Guardian was characterized by
the House Committee on Un-American Activities as "...a virtual official
propaganda arm of Soviet Russia." (Guide to Subversive
Organizations, Washington, DC, 1961, p. 193.)
In June 1964, King sent a telegram to Jesse Gray, a Communist who
had been leading riots and rent strikes in New York. In the telegram
King told Gray, "You have my absolute support. - . ." The Communists
considered that telegram so important that they put it on the front page of
their newspaper, The Worker. (The Worker, June 2, 1964, p. 1.) One month
following King’s promise of "absolute support," Gray called for "guerrilla
warfare" in the United States and said that he needed "One hundred skilled
black revolutionaries who were ready to die." (New York Times, July 20,
The Communists praise, consistently, only those who are doing the work
of the Communist Party. Manning Johnson, a Negro who left the
Communist Party after discovering that the Reds only intended to enslave
the colored people, had this to say to a government body concerning King:
The Communists are praising King to the highest and they are daily
quoting some of his speeches which express more or less what they
say.... I wonder who is giving him the Party Line. (Subversion in
Racial Unrest, Joint Legislative Committee, State of Louisiana,
1957, p. 205.)
The admiration verges on idolatry:
• Benjamin J. Davis., the late Communist National Secretary, called
King "a brilliant and great practical leader." (The
Worker November 10, 1963, p. 3.)
• The Worker itself praised King’s "great inspirational leadership."
(September 15, 1964, p. 2)
• King is "courageous and sagacious" according to William
Patterson, a Negro member of the National Committee of the
Communist Party. (November 25,. 1965, p. 4.)
• Patterson said in The Worker on that same date, "Millions of white
and Negro Americans should rally to Dr. King’s call …”
Just as the Communists and their sympathizers are always in favor of any
legislation that lessens the power of local government and promotes the
increase in power of the federal government, so in the realm of law
enforcement the Revolutionaries would like to replace the local police with a
national police force which they could control-as they already control many
appointed officials and elected, vote-hungry politicians in high offices. That
is why Communists work to tie the hands of local police officials-through
establishing police review boards -so that when disturbances do break out
the power of the police to control them is restrained.
Whether it is a .protest march in the South or a riot in the North the cry is
always for federal troops. The idea of a national police force is not new.
Other countries have had them. In Germany they were called the Gestapo.
Martin Luther King, the Nobel Peace Prize winner, has built his career
upon the term "nonviolence." Yet King has admitted in his own book, Why
We Can’t Wait, and in an article written for Saturday Review, that inciting
people to violence is the key to success of the civil rights march. He
Long years of experience indicate to us that Negroes can achieve this
goal when four things occur:
1. Nonviolent demonstrators go into the streets to exercise their
2. Racists resist by unleashing violence against them.
3. Americans of conscience in the name of decency demand federal
intervention and legislation.
4. The Administration, under mass pressure, initiates measures of
immediate intervention and remedial legislation.
(ML King, Jr., "Behind the Selma March", Saturday
Review, April 3, 1965, pp. 16, 17; 57.)
In other words, if you can provoke people into attacking you while television
cameras grind away and flashbulbs pop, the mass media will make your
march a success.
King, in another book, has stated his affirmative attitude toward Marx
and Marxism. King says that in studying Marx:
"It challenged me-to a growing concern about social justice ...I was
deeply concerned about the gulf between superfluous wealth and
abject poverty, and my reading of Marx made me ever more
conscious of this gulf.... Marx bad revealed the danger of the profit
motive as the sole basis of an economic system... In so far as he
pointed to weaknesses of traditional capitalism, contributed to the
growth of a definite self-consciousness in the masses, and challenged
the social conscience of the Christian churches, I responded with a
definite ‘Yes!" (Stride Toward Freedom, New York, Ballantine
Books, 1958, pp. 74-75.)
The Reverend King says that he did not accept Marxist views on
religion, but it is obvious that he did accept the basic fundamental tenet
of Communism-the class war.
It is very difficult to find a public cause upon which King and the
Communist Party have any differences. King has called upon the
President to free Morton Sobell, the Soviet spy serving thirty years in
prison for stealing our atomic secrets; he has called for the admission of
Communist China to the UN, petitioned Congress to abolish the
Committee on Un-American Activities and the Senate Internal Security
Subcommittee-the only congressional bodies empowered to investigate
Communism-joined the Communists in publicly denouncing the conviction
of Communists Carl Braden and Frank Wilkinson for contempt of Congress,
called for the pardon of Communist Julius Scales, convicted of violating the
Smith Act by advocating the violent overthrow of the United States
government; and he has demanded the withdrawal of the United States
troops which-despite an official "no-win" policy at the top-are attempting to
stop the Communist capture of South Vietnam. As the Indianapolis Star on
July 8, 1965, stated, "If King is not a Communist he might as well be; for
he is doing for them exactly what they themselves propose and have
advocated for years." For King’s positions are all official Communist or
Communist-front positions. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily make King
a Communist. Maybe he’s naive.

27, 1838; Collected Works 1:113)
In the Book of Mormon the Prophet Nephi exclaims: "O Lord, I have trusted in
thee, and I will trust in thee forever. I will not put my trust in the arm of flesh;
for I know that cursed is he that putteth his trust in man or maketh flesh his
arm." (2 Nephi 4:34)
Prophesying of our day, Nephi said, "They have all gone astray save it be a few,
who are humble followers of Christ; nevertheless, they are led, that in many
instances they do err because they are taught the precepts of men." (2 Nephi
Yes, it is the precepts of men versus the revealed word of God. The more we
follow the word of God the less we are deceived, while those who follow the
wisdom of men are deceived the most.
Increasingly, the Latter-day Saints must choose the reasoning of men [or] the
revelations of God. This is a crucial choice, for we have those within the
Church today who, with their worldly wisdom, are leading some of the
members astray. President J. Reuben Clark warned that, "The ravening wolves
are amongst us, from our own membership, and they, more than any others, are
clothed in sheep's clothing, because they wear the habiliments of the
Priesthood. . . We should be careful of them." (Conference Report, April 1949,
In 1942, President Heber J. Grant, J. Reuben Clark, and David O. McKay
warned us about the increasing threat to our Constitution, caused by the
revolutionists who, the First Presidency said, were "using a technique that is as
old as the human race--a fervid, but false solicitude for the unfortunate, over
whom they thus gain master, and then enslave them. They suit their approaches
to the particular group they seek to deceive." (First Presidency, Conference
Report, April 1942, p. 90)
That timely counsel about a "fervid, but false solicitude for the unfortunate"
could have saved China and Cuba if enough people knew what the communist
"master of deceit" really had in mind when they promised agrarian reform. Such
timely counsel could help save our country from communism, as the same
"masters of deceit" are showing the same false solicitude for the unfortunate in
the name of civil rights.
Now there is nothing wrong with civil rights--it is what's being done in the
name of civil rights that is alarming. There is no doubt that the so-called Civil
Rights movement as it exists today is used as a communist program for
revolution in America, just as agrarian reform was used by the communists to
take over China and Cuba.(2)
This shocking statement can be confirmed by an objective study of communist
literature and activities and by knowledgeable Negroes and others who have
worked within the communist movement.(3)
As far back as 1928, the communists declared that the cultural, economic, and
social differences between the races in America could be exploited by them to
create the animosity, fear, and hatred between large segments of our people that
would be necessary beginning ingredients for their revolution.(4)
Briefly, the three broad objectives were--and are--as follows:
Overthrow Established Government
1. Create Hatred. Use any means to agitate blacks into hating whites and whites
into hating blacks. Work both sides of the split. Play up and exaggerate real
grievances. If necessary, don't hesitate to manufacture false stories and rumors
about injustices and brutality. Create martyrs for both sides. Play upon mass
emotions until they smolder with resentment and hatred.
2. Trigger Violence. Put the emotional masses into the streets in the form of
large mobs, the larger the better. It makes no difference if the mob is told to
demonstrate "peacefully" so long as it is brought into direct confrontation with
the antagonist. Merely bringing the two emotionally charged groups together is
like mixing oxygen and hydrogen. All that is needed is one tiny spark. If the
spark is not forthcoming from purely spontaneous causes, create it.(5)
3. Overthrow Established Government. Once mob violence becomes
widespread and commonplace, condition those who are emotionally involved to
accept violence as the only way to "settle the score" once and for all. Provide
leadership and training for guerrilla warfare. Institute discipline and terrorism
to insure at least passive support from the larger inactive segment of the
population. Train and battle-harden leadership through sporadic riots and battles
with police. Finally, at the appointed time, launch an all-out simultaneous
offensive in every city.(6)
Police and national guard units will never be adequate to handle such
widespread anarchy--especially if a large part of our men and equipment are
drained away in fighting a foreign war. In self-defense, larger numbers are
brought into fighting on both sides. The appearance of a nationwide civil war
takes form. In the confusion, potential anti-communist leaders of both races are
assassinated, apparently the accidental casualties of race war.
Time the attack to coincide with large-scale sabotage of water supplies, power
grids, main railroad and highway arteries, communication centers, and
government buildings. With fires raging in every conceivable part of town, with
wanton looting going on in the darkness of a big city, without routine police
protection, without water to drink, without electrical refrigeration, without
transportation or radio or TV, the public will panic, lock its door in trembling
fear, and make it much easier for the small but well-led and fully disciplined
guerrilla bands to capture the power-centers of each community. Overthrow the
government! After complete control is consolidated, (and that may take many
months, as in Cuba), only then allow the people to discover that it was a
communist revolution after all.
If communism comes to America, it will probably not happen quite like that.
Even though this is the basic formula used in so many other countries now part
of the communist empire, there is one very important difference. In China, in
Cuba, and in Algeria the segment of the population which the communists used
as the "battering ram" of their revolution of force and violence was the makority
segment.(7) In America, though, the Negro represents only 10 percent of the
population. In any all-out race war which might be triggered, there isn't a
chance in the world that communist-led Negro guerilla units could permanently
hold on to the power centers of government, even if they could capture them in
the first place.
It would be a terribly bloody affair, with all Americans suffering mightily, but
with Negroes paying the highest toll in human life. And the communists know
this better than anyone else. They do not really expect to take America with a
"War of National Liberation," (which is their term for internal conquest through
force and violence), unless the aggressive revolutionary force can be broadened
to include, not only the minority of Negros, but migratory farm laborers, the
poor, the unemployed, those on welfare, other minority groups, students, the so-
called "peace movements," and anyone who can be propagandized into mob
action against established government. But unless and until they manipulate an
overwhelming majority of the population into at least sympathizing with their
revolutionary activities, they will use violence, anarchy, and sabotage, not as a
means of seizing power, but merely as a support operation or a catalyst to an
entirely different plan.
In such countries as Czechoslovakia, the communists have used an entirely
different method of internal conquest. Instead of the force and violence of a
bloody revolution (a "War of National Liberation") parliamentary and political
means were used to bring about a more peaceful transition to communism. The
communist sympathizers call this alternate plan a "Proletarian Revolution."(8)
The plan is as follows: Using unidentified communist agents and non-
communist sympathizers in key positions in government, in communications
media, and in mass organizations--such as labor unions and civil rights groups--
demand more and more government power as the solution to all civil rights
problems. Total government is the objective of communism. Without calling it
by name, build communism piece by piece through mass pressures for
presidential decrees, court orders, and legislation which appear to be aimed at
improving civil rights and other social reforms. If there is social, economic, or
educational discrimination, then advocate more government programs and
And what if riots come? Then more government housing, government welfare,
government job training, and finally, federal control over police. Thus, the
essential economic and political structure of communism can be built entirely
"legally" and in apparent response to the wishes of the people who have
clamored for some kind of solution to the problems played-up, aggravated or
created outright by communists for just that purpose. After the machinery of
communism is firmly established, then allow the hidden communists one-by-
one to make their identities known. Liquidate first the anti-communists and then
the non-communist sympathizers who are no longer needed in government. The
total state mechanism can now openly and "peacefully" be transferred into the
hands of communists. Such is the so-called Proletarian Revolution. Such has
happened in other once free countries. It has already started here.
The communists are not entirely certain whether force and violence or the use
of government or a combination of both would be best for the internal conquest
of America. At first, there was talk of splitting away the "Black Belt," those
Southern states in which the Negro held a majority, and calling that a Negro
Soviet Republic. But, as conditions changed and more Negroes migrated to the
Northern states, they applied this same strategy to the so-called "ghetto" areas
in the North. It now seems probable that the communists are determined to use
force and violence to its fullest, coupled with a weakening of the economy and
military setbacks abroad, in an effort to create as much havoc as possible to
weaken America internally, and to create the kind of psychological desperation
in the minds of all citizens that will lead them to accept blindly government
measures which actually help the communists in their take-over.
Some wonder if it can happen here. Just take a good look at what has been
going on around us for the past few years. IT IS HAPPENING HERE! If it is
to be prevented from running the full course, we must stop pretending that it
Let us consider some suggestions for our survival. The hour is late.
The communist program for revolution in America has been in progress for
many years and is far advanced. While it can be thwarted in a fairly short
period of time merely by exposure, the evil effects of what has already been
accomplished cannot be removed overnight. The animosities, the hatred, the
extension of government control into our daily lives--all this will take time to
repair. The already-inflicted wounds will be slow in healing. But they can be
healed; that is the important point.

Anarchy USA: In the Name of Civil Rights - A documentary
demonstrating how the Communists Conspiracy was behind
The Civil Rights Movement. G. Edward Griffin narrating.
1. First of all, we must not place the blame upon Negroes. They are merely the
unfortunate group which has been selected by professional communist agitators
to be used as the primary source of cannon fodder. Not one in a thousand
Americans--black or white--really understands the full implications of today's
civil rights agitation. The planning, direction, and leadership come from the
communists, and most of those are white men who fully intend to destroy
America by spilling Negro blood, rather than their own.
2. Next, we must not participate in any so-called "backlash" activity which
might tend to further intensify inter-racial friction. Anti-Negro vigilante action,
or mob action, of any kind fits perfectly into the communist plan. This is one of
the best ways to force the decent Negro into cooperating with militant Negro
groups. The communists are just as anxious to spearhead such anti-Negro action
as they are to organize demonstrations which are calculated to irritate white
3. We must insist that duly authorized legislative investigating committees
launch an even more exhaustive study and expose the secret communists who
are directing the Civil Rights movement. The same needs to be done with
militant anti-Negro groups. This is an effective way for the American people of
both races to find out who are the false leaders among them.(9)
4. We must support our local police in their difficult task of keeping law and
order in these trying times. Police should not be encumbered by civilian review
boards,(10) or asked to be social workers. They have their hands full just trying
to keep the peace. Recent soft-on-crime decisions of the Supreme Court which
hamper the police on protecting the innocent and bringing the criminal to
justice should be reversed. Persistent cries of "police brutality"(11) should be
recognized for what they are--attempts to discredit our police and discourage
them from doing their job to the best of their ability. Salaries should be
adequate to hold on to and attract the very finest men available for police work.
But, in questions of money, great care should be taken not to accept grants from
the federal government. Along with federal money, inevitably there will come
federal controls and "guidelines" which not only may get local police embroiled
in national politics, but may even lead to the eventual creation of a national
police force.(12) Every despotism requires a national police force to hold the
people in line. Communism is no exception. Our local police should remain free
from federal control.
5. Further encroachment of government should be stopped and the entire
process reversed. The solution to most, if not all, of the current problems
involving civil rights is less government, not more.
6. Lastly, we need a vast awakening of the American people as to the true
nature of the communist blueprint for revolution. Considering the degree to
which the controlling influences of the federal government and the
communications media are now furthering this communist revolution, it is
unrealistic to expect our present leaders or the networks to bring about this
awakening. In fact, they may be expected to resist it. That means individual
citizens must stand up and assume more than their share of the responsibility.
The speaker's platform and distribution of literature, study clubs, home
discussions--all must be pressed into service. All of us should read the new
book, Communist Revolution in the Streets, written by Gary Allen, with an
introduction by W. Cleon Skousen.
Each of us must be willing to discuss the problem openly with our friends--
especially those of the Negro race. The success or failure of Americans of all
races to meet this challenge may well determine the fate of our country. If we
fail, we will all lose our civil rights, black man and white man together, for we
will live under perfect communist equality--the equality of slaves.
As President David O. McKay has stated, "The position of this Church on
the subject of communism has never changed. We consider it the greatest
Satanical threat to peace, prosperity and the spread of God's work among men
that exists on the face of the earth." (Conference Report, April 1966, p. 109)
(13) He has also counseled that, "next to being one in worshipping God, there is
nothing in this world upon which this Church should be more united than in
upholding and defending the Constitution of the United States!" (President
David O. McKay, The Instructor, 1956, p. 94)
May we unite behind the Prophet in opposing the communist conspiracy and
preserving our freedom and our divine Constitution, I pray.

Lake City, Utah, and printed in pamphlet form by Deseret Book Company.
2. "From the beginning of the so-called Negro Revolution and the insane antics
identified with it. . . I had opposed all of the marches on Washington and other
mob demonstrations, recognizing them as part of the Red techniques of
agitation, infiltration, and subversion. That was included by the fact that
invariably they were proposed, incited, managed, and led by professional
collectivist agitators, whose only interest in the workers was to exploit them;
backed by the proliferation of 'liberals' of position and influence who always
run interference for them by 'explaining' and defending their course." (George
S. Schuyler, Negro Journalist; Black and Conservative, p. 341)
3. Manning Johnson, now deceased, spelled out this blueprint in his book,
Color, Communism and Common Sense (Western Islands, Belmont, Mass.).
Leonard Patterson, Mrs. Julia Brown and Mrs. Lolabelle Holmes are
currently active on lecture tours carrying this unhappy truth about the Civil
Rights movement to as many of the American people as they can reach.
4. The two classic communist manuals explaining this diabolic plot are
American Negro Problems, by John Pepper (1928) and Negroes in a Soviet
America, by James Ford and James Allen (1935). Both originally were
published by the Communist party and now may be obtained as photographic
reprints from American Opinion, Belmont Mass. 02178 [Note: The American
Opinion magazine has been renamed, "The New American," and is
published under authority of the John Birch Society, which has moved
headquarters to Appleton Wisconsin]
5. "At this moment in history, the communists are ecstatic over their success in
helping to retard our progress in improving racial relations in this country. . .
The present dangerous decline in black-white relations in the United States
could well lead us into a disastrous racial civil war, which is exactly what the
communists want and are willing to gamble on at the present moment. A racial
civil war in the United States could only breed one thing--anarchy. And once
anarchy sweeps this country, the battle will be over to all intents and purposes. .
. Certainly while the rest of the country was involved in trying to salvage itself
from a civil war, the communists would remain intact as a functioning
revolutionary cadre and would await the chance to seize power from a
government incapable of governing or defending itself from internal tyranny."
(Phillip Abbott Luce, ex-communist; The Intelligent Student's Guide To
Survival, p. 60)
6. The Communists are counting on the premise that most Americans will
discount the probability of a guerilla war in their country. The notion of a
guerilla war in the United States is so outrageous and improbable to Americans
that they would receive it as the product of a deranged mind. The Communists
are fully aware of this and are counting heavily on the fact that most of our
citizens will be mentally, as well as physically, unprepared. The shock effect of
the initial onslaught will work in favor of the guerillas." (Phillip Abbott Luce,
Road to Revolution: Communist Guerilla Warfare in the U.S.A., p. 13)
7. There is nothing more odious than the majority. It consists of a few powerful
men who lead the way; of accommodating rascals and submissive weaklings;
and of a mass of men who trot after them without in the least knowing their
own minds." (Johann Wolfgang Goethe, 1749-1832; Great Quotations, p. 624)
8. For a detailed understanding of this phase of communist strategy, the student
is urged to research the Party's official pronouncements on the subject of
Proletarian Revolution. Perhaps the easiest and best place to begin, however, is
with one of the actual textbooks used to teach communist cadres in
Czechoslovakia. It is entitled, About the Possible Transition to Socialism by
Means of the Revolutionary Use of Parliament, written by Jan Kozak,
official Historian of the Czech Communist Party and member of the National
Assembly. Reprints of the pertinent parts of this textbook may be obtained from
the U.S. Printing Office in the form of a government pamphlet entitled, The
New Role of National Legislative Bodies in the Communist Conspiracy,
published by the House Committee on Un-American Activities, December
9. It is the proper duty of a representative body to look diligently into every
affair of government and to talk much about what it sees. It is meant to be the
eyes and the voice, and to embody the wisdom and will of its constituents. . .
The informing function of Congress should be preferred even to its legislative
function." (Woodrow Wilson, quoted by Justice Frankfurter at the October 1952
Term of the Supreme Court)
10. "A questionable move currently being championed in some localities is the
establishment of civilian review boards to hear complaints against law
enforcement officers. . . When carefully considered, it is clear this drive for
external boards is an ill-advised maneuver. It amounts to the usurpation of
authority rightfully belonging to the police commander. It is a practice which
could damage effective law enforcement and reduce the orderly processes of
community life to petty bickering, suspicion, and hatred. The police executive
cannot become a mere pawn of bureaucratic committees. He must have full
responsibility for the performance, discipline, and control of his officers. . .
Such panels represent a backward step for law enforcement toward ineptness
and mediocrity. Moreover, one of the major weaknesses of these boards is their
inherent political overtones." (J. Edgar Hoover, FBI Law Enforcement
Bulletin, January 1, 1965)
11. "We know there is a calculated and deliberate attempt by some groups to
inflame hostility against law enforcement by charging 'police brutality' without
cause. To a large degree they have succeeded. The term is bandied about in all
media of communication without serious consideration as to its true meaning or
its harmful effect on a profession which is charged with enforcing the basic
rules of civilized living." (J. Edgar Hoover, FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin,
June 1, 1966)
12. "America has no place for, nor does it need, a national police force. It
should be abundantly clear by now that in a democracy such as ours effective
law enforcement is basically a local responsibility. In the great area of self-
government reserved for States, counties, and cities, the enforcement of the
laws is not only their duty but also their right. Law-abiding citizens and local
officials should vigorously oppose concerted attacks against law enforcement
and the devious moves to negate local authority and replace it with Federal
police power. . . Since local law enforcement represents the first line of defense
of our social order, it becomes a primary target of those who challenge
established authority." (J. Edgar Hoover, FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin,
February 1, 1968)
13. Statement concerning the position of the Church on Communism, made
by President David O. McKay at the general priesthood session of the
136th Annual Conference of the Church held in the Salt Lake Tabernacle,
Saturday, April 9, 1966, at 7:00 p.m., read by Robert R. McKay. The full
text is as follows:
In order that there may be no misunderstandings by bishops, stake presidents,
and others regarding members of the Church participating in non-church
meetings to study and become informed on the Constitution of the United
States, Communism, etc., I wish to make the following statements that I have
been sending out from my office for some time and that have come under
question by some stake authorities, bishoprics, and others.
Members are free
Church members are at perfect liberty to act according to their own consciences
in the matter of safeguarding our way of life. They are, of course, encouraged to
honor the highest standards of the gospel and to work to preserve their own
freedoms. They are free to participate in non-church meetings that are held to
warn people of the threat of Communism or any other theory or principle that
will deprive us of our free agency or individual liberties vouchsafed by the
Constitution of the United States.
Church is politically neutral The Church, out of respect for the rights of all its
members to have their political views and loyalties, must maintain the strictest
possible neutrality. We have no intention of trying to interfere with the fullest
and freest exercise of the political franchise of our members under and within
our Constitution, which the Lord declared he established "by the hands of wise
men whom [he] raised up unto this very purpose" (D&C 101:80) and which, as
to the principles thereof, the Prophet Joseph Smith, dedicating the Kirtland
Temple, prayed should be "established forever." (D&C 109:54.) The Church
does not yield any of its devotion to or convictions about safeguarding the
American principles and the establishments of government under federal and
state constitutions and the civil rights of men safeguarded by these.
Communism greatest threat to peace and the spread of God's word to men
The position of this Church on the subject of Communism has never changed.
We consider it the greatest satanical threat to peace, prosperity, and the
spread of God's work among men that exists on the face of the earth.
In this connection, we are continually being asked to give our opinion
concerning various patriotic groups or individuals who are fighting
Communism and speaking up for freedom. Our immediate concern, however, is
not with parties, groups, or persons, but with principles. We therefore commend
and encourage every person and every group who is sincerely seeking to study
Constitutional principles and awaken a sleeping and apathetic people to the
alarming conditions that are rapidly advancing about us. We wish all of our
citizens throughout the land were participating in some type of organized self-
education in order that they could better appreciate what is happening and
know what they can do about it.
Citizens should educate themselves
Supporting the FBI, the police, the congressional committees investigating
Communism, and various organizations that are attempting to awaken the
people through educational means is a policy we warmly endorse for all our
Communism's atheism and hate
The entire concept and philosophy of Communism is diametrically opposed to
everything for which the Church stands—belief in Deity, belief in the dignity
and eternal nature of man, and the application of the gospel to efforts for peace
in the world. Communism is militantly atheistic and is committed to the
destruction of faith wherever it may be found.
The Russian Commissar of Education wrote: "We must hate Christians and
Christianity. Even the best of them must be considered our worst enemies.
Christian love is an obstacle to the development of the revolution. Down with
love for one's neighbor. What we want is hate. Only then shall we conquer the
On the other hand, the gospel teaches the existence of God as our Eternal and
Heavenly Father and declares: ". . . him only shalt thou serve." (Matt. 4:10.)
Communism debases and destroys Communism debases the individual and
makes him the enslaved tool of the state, to which he must look for sustenance
and religion. Communism destroys man's God-given free agency.
No member of this Church can be true to his faith, nor can any American be
loyal to his trust, while lending aid, encouragement or sympathy to any of
these false philosophies, for if he does they will prove snares to his feet.
"There is no doubt that the so-called Civil Rights movement as it exists
today is used as a communist program for revolution in America, just as
agrarian reform was used by the communists to take over China and

"Civil Rights: Communist Tool of Deception"
The following two Chapters are taken from

(Published by Western Islands, Belmont MA., 1965)
Life Among the Eskimos
By Alan Stang
[I am] sick and tired of people saying this movement has been
infiltrated by Communists and Communist sympathizers.
There are as many Communists in this freedom movement as
there are Eskimos in Florida.1
----The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther
William Z. Foster and Gus Hall and other leading Communists have gone
to great trouble to make clear not only that there is no contradiction between
the two tactics the Communists in Moscow have developed for use in the
United States--"self-determination" and "civil rights"--but that the two
complement and reinforce each other and are in essence one and the
Let me sum up on this general point [says Foster], that is, the
orientation of the Negro people is first, toward full participation and
full equality in American life, and second, toward the development of
their national consciousness. Comrade Ed Strong made a good
contribution when he stressed the basic harmony between these two
streams of courses of development . . . 2
. . . Each influence the other [says Gus Hall] . . . Thus, the struggles
for full equality of the Negro national minority and the struggle for
national liberation of the oppressed nation are very closely
In the North the slogan for equal rights will be the basic slogan
[explains Communist official William L. Patterson]. A major feature
of the program in the North must be the struggle to destroy the ghetto.
. . We must smash the ghetto. The ghetto is tied to the South and to
the issue of the right of self-determination.4
How, one wonders?
". . . These are the people who are ready for revolution--any kind of
revolution . . ." says Professor Lincoln about the Black Muslims.
"Furthermore, in the segregated Black Ghetto, the illusion of a 'Black
Nation' within a surrounding and hostile 'white nation' takes on a
semblance of reality . . ."5
So what is the nature of "the basic harmony between these two streams of
courses of development," as Foster so clearly puts it?
The vast bulk of American Negroes merely aspire to precisely the
same rights as other Americans [says C. L. Sulzberger] . . . North
American extremism is of real danger only if existing injustices are
not rectified in time.
However, should there be no prompt reform, the United States could
see hideous racial quarrels on a scale hitherto unimaginable.6
". . . On fund-raising missions to corporate boards, Whitney Young,
Jr., executive director of the National Urban League, poses these
alternatives; invest in positive assistance--or risk hostility and
growing strength for the Muslims . . ."7
In 1963 he made the same prediction.
"Unless we do something, the Negro in the future will no longer react
with resignation but with bitterness and hostility."
And those are the ingredients of trouble. "We're liable to get some real
violence--in Chicago, in Detroit, in New York," Young predicts gloomily. .8
So what should we do?
The white leadership must be honest enough to grant that throughout
our history there has existed a special privileged class of citizens who
received preferred treatment. That class was white. Now we're saying
this: if two men, one Negro and one white, are equally qualified for a
job, hire the Negro.9
"The fundamental policy of a Soviet Government with regard to the
Negro generally would therefore be to create even relatively greater
opportunities for advance and progress for the Negro than for the
white. Special emphasis would be placed upon training more Negro
skilled workers . . . A Soviet Government must confer greater benefits
upon the Negroes than upon the whites, for the Negroes have started
with less . . ."10
As long as we are not allowed to establish a state or territory of our
own [says Mr. Muhammad] we demand not only equal justice under
the laws of the United States, but equal employment opportunities--
. . . The United States government should provide, free, all necessary
text books and equipment, schools and college buildings . . .11
So what Mr. Muhammad wants is more and more civil rights, until he gets
the "separation." In fact, once he gets the separation--from a government
that has been grabbed by civil rights—
". . . We believe that our former slave masters are obliged to maintain
and supply our needs in this separate territory for the next 20 to 25
years--until we are able to produce and supply our own needs."12
"Thirdly, there would be even greater aid from the Central Soviet
Government of the United States. . ." The Negroes in a Soviet
So it turns out that even Mr. Muhammad isn't completely opposed to civil
rights. Muhammad Speaks for January 31, 1964, hails the CORE attempt to
"integrate" the staff of the Jefferson Bank and Trust Company in St. Louis.14
And in an editorial in July, 1962, we read:
Muslims certainly have no opposition to the program and policies of the
NAACP . . .
There is much to be admired in the heroic struggle waged by the
NAACP since the days of its formation against incalculable odds.
Many NAACP leaders, nationally and locally, are men and women of
high intelligence and integrity.15
"If one can't gain objectives through mediation, if one can't gain
objectives after a riot," explains the Rev. Milton Galamison, leader of
the New York school boycott, "then all these things may become a
Sunday school picnic by comparison to what people are going to do
in order to get their grievances remedied."16
And so the point is, as Professor Lincoln suggests, that
"Muslim extremism may even rebound and actively assist the forces of
integration. It may, for example, force a white reappraisal of other
protest organizations, such as the NAACP which are now widely
resisted as 'too pushy' or 'radical.' . . ."17
Let's sum up: There are in the United States two kinds of "Negro Leaders":
the violents, and the "nonviolents." The violents want to destroy the Unted
States and set up their own nation on part of it. All the nonviolents want is
Americans of all colors are going to get one or the other, they are told, so
they'd better take the integration. If they don't, they'll get the self-
determination, and that's bound to be unpleasant. In other words, if the
violents make a riot, and the nonviolent Rev. Galamisson doesn't get what he
wants, the violents will probably make a bigger riot.
If you wanted to define in one word you'd pick the word "extortion."
What is important to observe is that the two strategies advance like legs on
the same man. Left to themselves, the violents would probably fall on their
collective face just because they are violent, and it's therefore easier to tell
what they are actually all about. And the nonviolents would collapse because
they would lack the violence to back threats. But notice that when you put
the two together, they both get progressively violent, or less and less
nonviolent--but the nonviolents in comparison always look like moderates.
Roy Wilkins begins to sound like President McKinley, because a Malcom X
sounds like Attila the Hun.
And Jesse Gray begins to sound like Malcolm X.
On June 28, two weeks before he arrived in Cairo to attend that meeting of
the Organization for African Unity, Malcolm formed a revolutionary group
called the Organization of Afro-American Unity, with himself as chairman.
As members of the OAAU brain trust, Malcolm named Rev. Albert Cleage,
leader of the Michigan Freedom Now party; Gloria Richardson, leader of the
Freedom Now movement in Cambridge, Maryland; Lawrence Landry,
Chicago school boycott leader; John Lewis, head of the Student Nonviolent
Coordinating Committee; and Jesse Gray--all practicing non-violents.18
As we have seen, Malcolm X has become the leading symbol of the violents.
And the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has become the leading symbol of
In fact, we are told, the Rev. Dr. King is the only man who can save us from
And so the question arises: What was the relationship, if any, between
Malcolm and the Rev. Dr. King?
What sort of person is the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?
In November of 1938 the Communist party formed an organization called
the Southern Conference for Human Welfare.19
Rob Hall, then secretary of
the Alabama Communist party, tells how "our comrades . . . naturally
watched the conference preparations closely and helped wherever
SCHW was what is known as a Communist front. Early in their movement,
the Communists came boldly out as Communists--possibly because they
assumed that other people couldn't wait to join up. But it turned out that
other people were not interested. In fact, it turned out that most people by far
of every race and country are thoroughly decent and want no part of criminal
communism. As Political Affairs said:
To the extent that we aroused enthusiasm among the Negro people, it
was largely in spite of, not because of our over-simplified
presentation of the right of self-determination. Anyone who has
worked in the South must realize that our presentation of this right for
the most part had only the effect of puzzling and confusing the Negro
people who followed our movement. They generally listened politely
to our exposition of this right, but treated it as some strange
idiosyncrasy to which we were addicted, but which could be forgiven
in friends. The most damning thing of all was that those Negroes who
took the trouble to ascertain exactly what we were driving at
generally voiced very decided opposition.21
So the Communists realized, as Jesse Gray reportedly remarked, that in
order to put people to use, they would have to develop some sort of
Consequently, they developed the strategy of the Communist "front." The
front is operated in two ways: either the Communists infiltrate an
organization, work inside it (in Communist language, "bore from within"),
and eventually capture it; or they form their own organization--and simply
invite the gullible in. In either case, many unsuspecting Americans wind up
working to further some specific Communist objective.
"Comrades, you remember the ancient tale of the capture of Troy.
Troy was inaccessible to the armies attacking her, thanks to her
impregnable walls. And the attacking army, after suffering many
sacrifices, was unable to achieve victory until with the aid of the
famous Trojan horse it managed to penetrate the very heart of the
"We revolutionary workers, it appears to me, should not be shy about
using the same tactics with regard to our fascist foe . . ."22
But what is essential, in either case, is that since the overwhelming majority
of people of any kind are thoroughly decent, the front must not only avoid
mentioning, but actively deny that it has anything at all to do with
Once the secret gets out, the Communist front has lost its value--
because most people are decent.
"Everything should be done to bring wide masses of Negroes into
these partial struggles. This is important--and not to carry the various
partial demands to such an ultra-radical point that the mass of
working Negroes are no longer able to recognize them as their own.
Without a real mobilization of the mass-movements . . . even the best
Communist partial demands get hung up . . ."23
In other words, keep the Negroes under the impression that the campaign has
something to do with what they want, when all along it has only to do with
But comrades let remarks slip. In speaking of the Southern Conference
for Human Welfare and other southern fronts, Communist James W.
Ford boasted in an article entitled
"The Struggle for the Building of the Modern Liberation Movement of
the Negro People, that "the Communists, through their pioneering
work in the South, may justly claim to have laid the foundation for
these great social movements."24
So the secret was out:
Careful examination of its official publication and its activities will
disclose that the conference is being used in devious ways to further
basic Soviet and Communist policy. Decisive and key posts are in
most instances controlled by persons whose record is faithful to the
line of the Communist Party and the Soviet Union.25
The Southern Conference for Human Welfare was conceived,
financed, and set up by the Communist Party in 1938 as a mass
organization to promote communism throughout the Southern States.26
And so the Communists abolished the Southern Conference for Human
Immediately thereafter, there appeared on the scene an organization known
as the Southern Conference Educational Fund. The Southern Conference
Educational Fund's business address was 822 Perdido Street in New
The Southern Conference for Human Welfare's business address
had been 822 Perdido Street in New Orleans. The Southern Conference
Educational Fund published--and continues to publish--a paper called the
Southern Patriot. The paper published by the Southern Conference for
Human Welfare had been called the Southern Patriot. Both organizations
used the same telephone, and both had generally the same officers.
SCHW and SCEF, in short, are the same organization. Nothing has changed
but the last two letters.
Who exactly is running SCHW-EF?
Mr. Carl Braden of Louisville, Kentucky, who serves as field director of
SCEF, has been named under oath as a member of the Communist party.28
Mrs. Anne Braden, also of Louisville, Kentucky, and editor of the
Southern Patriot, has also been named under oath as a member of the
". . . Alberta Ahearn . . . swore both in Court and later before the
Senate Internal Security Subcommittee that Carl and Anne Braden
had recruited her into the Communist Party, and that she knew them
as Communist Party members."29
Mr. Braden is a former convict. While in Louisville, he was convicted of a
felony--a matter involving some dynamite. And Mrs. Braden was indicted
It seems she doesn't like our form of government.
Carl Braden is also listed on its letterhead as one of the "national sponsors"
of the Fair Play for Cuba Committee--which sponsored member Lee
Harvey Oswald, the "lone fanatic"--and which is a Communist front.
Braden was one of the main speakers at the FPCC dinner in New York on
April 28, 1961.31
Benjamin E. Smith and his law partner, Bruce Waltzer, take part in the
"overall management" of SCEF.32
Both are under indictment "for multiple
violations of the Louisiana Subversive Activities and Communist Control
At a closed meeting of the Southern Conference Educational Fund on
February 3, 1964, at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York, Benjamin Smith,
Treasurer of the Southern Conference Educational Fund, stated:
"Come June, armies will take the field," "These armies are coming to
strike. The Southern Conference Educational Fund is one of those
armies.” "The Southern Conference Educational Fund occupies a
unique place in the South, it furnishes a staff organization supervising
others." "There will be strikes, sit-downs, movements, we must play
our part." . . . "Revolution is on its way."34
Mr. Aubrey Williams was president of the SCEF until 1963, when he
became so busy as chairman of the National Committee to Abolish HUAC--
which is a Communist front--that he decided to make himself president
emeritus. As director of the National Youth Administration under President
Roosevelt, Mr. Williams was Lyndon Johnson's boss. He also held other
important jobs in the New Deal.
". . . In 1945, however, the U.S. Senate rejected his appointment as
administrator of the Rural Electrification Administration, after his
affiliations with the Communist apparatus had been placed in the
record . . ."35
On March 19, 1954, Mr. Williams testified before the Senate Internal
Security Subcommittee that he had made the following statement in a
speech in New York on September 11, 1947:
". . . It is my belief that it is precisely at this point that we take our
stand and defend the right of any Communist to maintain his position
as an employee of the Government of the United States . . ."36
Aubrey Williams in April of 1954 at Hearings held in New Orleans by
the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, was identified as a
Communist Party member by one witness who had been in the Party,
and was identified by another witness at the same time as one who
had accepted Communist Party discipline . . .37
Yet, note this carefully: President Johnson called on Aubrey Williams at his
home just after the assassination of President Kennedy!
That's right. A man who has been authoritatively identified as a Communist
agent, and whose goal therefore is the complete destruction of the United
States, received a personal visit from the president of the United States.
The new president of the SCEF is the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth. Fred
Shuttlesworth "has been affiliated with several communist-front
and is a former convict.39
The next document is a letter dated September 21, 1960, from Carl Braden
to James A. Dombrowski. It shows that the Rev. Fred L. Shuttleworth, ex-
convict leader of the "Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights" . . .
was using the Bradens to write his news releases, obviously because the
Bradens were, and are, highly skilled professional propagandists . . . We
offer the letter.40
Dr. James A. Dombrowski was executive director of SCHW. Dr. James
A. Dombrowski is executive director of SCEF.
At the SISS Hearings in March of 1954, John Butler, former Alabama
Communist party official, testified that in July, 1942, he attended a meeting
of Communist party leaders in the Thomas Jefferson Hotel, in Birmingham,
Alabama, at which Alton Lawrence introduced James A. Dombrowski as a
member of the Communist party.41
Butler said this meeting of Communist
party leaders was held in Dombrowski's own hotel room.
It seems that Dr. Dombrowski has many friends. In 1932, along with a man
named Myles Horton, he was running an outfit called Commonwealth
College in Mena, Arkansas. Commonwealth College was controlled by the
People's Institute of Applied Religion, which had been organized by the
The idea behind the college was that since communism
in the South couldn't beat religion, the Communists would use religion by,
among other things, comparing texts taken from the New Testament and Karl
But the college--run by Dombrowski and Horton--was convicted under the
laws of Arkansas of displaying the hammer and sickle and openly teaching
whereupon Arkansas levied a fine of $2,500.00. The college
couldn't come up with the cash, so the state took over the property, sold it at
public auction and used the money to cover the costs.
A detailed Communist plot to use the college as a chief instrument for
Communist propaganda in the South is outlined in a secret report on
communism which was reprinted by the House Committee on Un-American
And on April 27, 1949, the U.S. attorney general cited
Commonwealth as a Communist front.45
Commonwealth College lived on, however, for the faculty moved to the
town of Monteagle, Tennessee, where, with the assistance of a man named
Don West, they organized the Highlander Folk School.46
Don West was district director of the Communist party of North Carolina.47
It was probably all right, though, because Aubrey Williams, President
Johnson's friend, was also involved.48
Of course the Highlander Folk School was tax-exempt. A school leaflet
advertising the 1949 winter term claims that the "purpose of Highlander
Fold School is to promote the progressive labor movement in the South."
Among the courses announced in the same leaflet is one in union problems
"deals with definite problems of the students as Labor Board
procedure, education in unions, race relations are some of the things
discussed . . ."49
" . . . It is necessary . . . to go the whole length of any sacrifice, if need
be, to resort to strategy and adroitness, illegal proceedings, reticence
and subterfuge, to anything in order to penetrate into the Trade
Unions, remain in them, and carry on Communist work inside them,
at any cost . . ."50
V. I. Lenin
What the school was actually doing was teaching the superiority of the
Soviet form of government and advocating revolution to bring it about
in the United States, and recruiting young students into the Young
. . . I have seen these YCL cards in the possession of Ralph
Tuffytaller, Myles Horton, James Dombrowski, and Bill Marlowe and
have heard them all talk in favor of the Young Communists League. I
have also heard all of the above mentioned people speak in favor of
the Russian form of Government. I have heard Myles Horton and
James Dombrowski make the following remarks ("Only a revolution
will bring about a change from our present form of Government to the
Russian form of Government"). I have heard them make this remark
on several occasions and they would be in the Highlander Folk
I have also heard Myles Horton talk about the Commonwealth
College with reference to the friendly relations between Highlander
Folk School and this Commonwealth College. I also know that
several students from Commonwealth College have visited the
Highlander Folk School from time to time.51
And this disturbed the authorities of the American state of Tennessee. So in
1960, through court action, they succeeded in closing the organization
known as the Highlander Folk School at Monteagle.
On August 30, 1961, an organization called the Highlander Research and
Education Center, of Knoxville, Tennessee, was incorporated, and
immediately received tax-exempt status from the U.S. government, since the
Internal Revenue Service had declared Highlander "a recognized
educational institution with government approval."
The director of this new organization turns out to be Myles Horton. In a
form letter dated May 15, 1963, Mr. Horton explained that:
". . . In the words of board of directors chairman, Dr. B. R. Brazeal, 'The
Highlander idea, like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, has truly been born
again in the Highlander Center.'"
Also of interest is the career of the Rev. Andrew Young, as recorded in
the Atlanta Constitution:
The administrator of the Dorchester Center in nearby Liberty County
played a leading role in the desegregation activities of the Chatham
County Crusade for Voters.
The administrator, the Reverend Andrew Young . . . received training
at the old Highlander Folk School at Monteagle, Tenn.
Before its charter at Monteagle was revoked, the Highlander School
received support from the International Union of Mine, Mill &
An officer of the union, now under indictment on a charge of filing a
false non-Communist affidavit, was one of the directors of the
The Reverend Young has been headquartered rent-free in Savannah
in the offices of the International Union of Mine, Mill & Smelter
Workers. The Subversive Activities Control Board, an agency of the
Federal Government, has found the union to be Communist
infiltrated. The Mine-Mill Union has appealed the finding to a
Federal court of appeals."52
Then there is the interesting case of a gentleman who is sometimes
known as Mr. Hunter Pitts O'Dell:
The Senate Internal Security Subcommittee declared today that "a
Communist underground was operating in New Orleans as late as
last spring . The panel made public in support of its finding the
transcripts of hearings held in that city in April.
The subcommittee said that American Communists
“sought to infiltrate labor unions, churches, farmer organizations,
parent-teacher organizations, channels of public opinion, and other
streams of influence in our society...
Much of the Senate panel's case was built up at New Orleans from
material found by New Orleans policemen in the abandoned
apartment of one Hunter Pitts O'Dell. Mr. O'Dell had been identified
in previous testimony as being the district organizer of the Communist
party in New Orleans.53
On April 12, 1956, identifying himself as Hunter Pitts O'Dell, a New
Orleans waiter, he testified before the Senate Internal Security
Subcommittee. He invoked the Fifth Amendment and refused to say
whether he was a southern district organizer for the Communist
Robert Morris, counsel for the subcommittee, said information had
been received that O'Dell was, in fact, a district organizer for the
Communist Party in New Orleans; that O'Dell gave "directives to the
professional group" in that city, and that he operated under three
different names--the two other names being John Vesey and Ben
In 1958, when O'Dell was living in Montgomery, he again declined to
answer questions about his Communist party activity.
In 1962, the House Committee on Un-American Activities published a
two-volume study entitled Structure and Organization of the Communist
Party of the United States.
On page 576, there is a list of those elected to the national committee of the
Communist Party, U.S.A., as known to the committee in November, 1961.
Among the names was that of Hunter Pitts O'Dell.
Mr. O'Dell apparently also found time to do some work for the Dorchester
Center, near Savannah, Georgia, which is operated out of Mine, Mill &
Smelter by the Rev. Andrew Young, who is operated out of the Highlander
School, of Monteagle, Tennessee.
The name of Bayard Rustin has long struck fear into the heart of every
Mr. Rustin said that in 1938 or 1939 he had joined a Young
Communist League group at City College in New York. But he
insisted that he, like many members of the youth group, never became
a member of the Communist Party because the party was ultra-
suspicious of young college students and had little confidence in their
Mr. Rustin knows best of course, but the peculiar thing is that one of the
major reasons for the existence of the YCL was to recruit young college
students into the Communist party.
This record, based on FBI and police reports, is as follows:
As a student at the College of the City of New York in 1936, Rustin
joined the Young Communist League and was active in its operations
on the campus and elsewhere.
In World War II, he was arrested several times for making speeches
advocating resistance to the conflict against Hitler and Mussolini. As
a professed conscientious objector, he served 26 months in the federal
prisons at Ashland, KY., and Lewisburg, Pa.56
He says he resigned from the YCL in 1941.
. . . Rustin worked closely, often as an office holder, with: the War
Resisters League, the World Peace Brigade, Liberation magazine, the
Medical Aid to Cuba Committee, the second General Strike for Peace,
the Monroe (N.C.) Defense Committee, the Committee for Non-
Violent Action . . . the Greenwich Village Peace Center, and any
number of other groups, ad hoc committees, petitions, etc., few of
which are arrestingly wholesome . . .57
". . . The Young Communist Leagues must strive in every way to unite
the forces of all non-fascist mass organizations of the youth, including
the formation of various kinds of common organizations for the
struggle against fascism . . .58
Mr. Rustin has also been active in a group called the American Forum
for Socialist Education, which is Communist dominated.59
Early in 1957, he spoke at the City College of New York to some four
The students . . . applauded heartily when Rustin appealed for a
student campaign to ban the H-bomb.
Other speakers were Joseph Clark, foreign editor of the Daily
Worker; Eric Haas, of the Socialist Labor Party . . . and Myra Tanner
Weiss, of the Socialist Workers Party.
. . .
Rustin strongly supported the non-violence tactics of the Montgomery
movement. He contrasted the democratic reforms in Poland with the
"retrogression to Stalinism in Hungary," and attributed the difference
to the fact that in Poland the workers pursued non-violent tactics
while in Hungary they resorted to violence . . .60
Observe that Mr. Rustin believes that what happened in Poland was good--
and somehow equates it with the Montgomery movement.
It is interesting to note that he was fresh from the sixteenth national
convention of the Communist party of the United States, in which he
participated, in February 1957, as an official "non-Communist" observer.
The observers observed in a signed statement
that the sessions of the convention were democratically conducted
with vigorous discussion of all matters brought to the floor. There
were many indications that no individual or group was in a position
to control the convention. . . .
Finally, we wish to protest vigorously against the continuance by
Senator Eastland's Senate Internal Security subcommittee of the un-
American practice of governmental inquisition into political opinions
and activities, as instanced by the summons to Eugene Dennis [a
Communist official] to appear next Monday before the subcommittee .
In 1958, Mr. Rustin was one of five Americans who went to Russia under
the sponsorship of a group known as the Nonviolent Action Committee
Against Nuclear Weapons.62
The January, 1963, issue of Fellowship reveals Mr. Rustin to be a "friend" of
Kwame Nkrumah, the Communist dictator of Ghana. In the same issue
Rustin is credited with having worked to establish a center for nonviolence
at Dar es Salaam, Tanganyika, where, as we have seen, Communist troops
are now in training.
In September of the year, he was in Richmond, Virginia, where he
"that bloodier Negro suffering should be encouraged so that
squeamish Northern Negroes would be horrified into line . . ."63
He was fresh from the march on Washington, which he conducted on August
28th, for the ostensible purpose of helping to pass the civil rights bill, the
day after which he urge that the only hope for Negroes was to "go left."64
On February 3, 1964, Mr. Rustin successfully conducted the New York City
On the next day, photographers recorded his departure from a cocktail
party at the Russian mission to the United Nations.
"Rustin said his presence stemmed from his activities in the
Committee for Non-Violent Action, a civil rights group, and his pre-
occupation with artistic freedom in Russia."65
"He has denied ever having been a member of the Communist Party . .
