Dishonest Communists vs. Honest Liberals April 6, 1952
“The controlling core of the communist parry in American is underground, composed of men and women who do not admit their affiliations and in control of front groups often composed of sincere, patriotic Americans.
“The Russian War Relief, the American Soviet Friendship Society, and the Spanish Refugee Appeal were supported by Americans about whose patriotism there was no question, yet where controlled by people I knew in the communist party, on direct orders from their superiors.”
Q: Do you believe loyalty oaths are effective?
A: No, one of the first things I was ordered to do was deny my membership in the communist party.
