In the real-world we make choices and those choices express our values and priorities.

I'm unclear about what alternative choices you propose that we should have made. Furthermore, where would your choices have led us, i.e. the likely outcome of those choices?

My choices would have kept us with a smaller federal government and kept a lid on those so-called economic rights that are even now squeezing out our political rights the way counterfeit currency squeezes out real money.

Here we go, perhaps this will interest you:




Ten years I labored in the cause of Communism. I was a dedicated "comrade." All my talents and efforts were zealously used to bring about the triumph of Communism in America and throughout the world. To me, the end of capitalism would mark the beginning of an interminable period of plenty, peace, prosperity and universal comradeship. All racial and class differences and conflicts would end forever after the liquidation of the capitalists, their government and their supporters. A world union of Soviet States under the hegemony of Russia would free and lead mankind on to Utopia.

Being an idealist, I was sold this "bill of goods" by a Negro graduate of the Lenin Institute in Moscow.

The color of one's skin is no bar to a young man or woman dreaming of making a better world. Like other Negroes, I experienced and saw many injustices and inequities around me based upon color, not ability. I was told that "the decadent capitalist system is responsible," that "mass pressure" could force concessions but "that just prolongs the life of capitalism"; that I must unite and work with all those who more or less agree that capitalism must go.

Little did I realize until I was deeply enmeshed in the Red Conspiracy, that just and seeming grievances are exploited to transform idealism into a cold and ruthless weapon against the capitalist system-that this is the end toward which all the communist efforts among Negroes are directed.

The rest is here:

Ah... I see you already know about Manning Johnson. My dear man, could it be that you are here on FR under false pretenses? Infiltrating, as it were? You're wasting your time if you are...

Wizard---your paranoia slip is showing....How does one "infiltrate" a website which is open to anyone who wants to discuss and debate just about any topic of interest?

Yes, I am quite familiar with Manning Johnson. He testified in 1958 that the NAACP was a "Communist front" and at other times he simply said it was "Communist dominated". Obviously, the Birch Society immediately elected him as one of their heroes. In April 1951 Manning admitted lying under oath during the sedition trial of Steve Nelson.

After Manning died in 1959, the JBS discovered Julia Brown and appointed her as their resident expert on civil rights matters but Julia explicitly said that the NAACP was NOT Communist controlled or dominated and, in fact, was an entirely legitimate organization working "for first-class citizenship for all Americans." She even declared that the Communists "hated the NAACP".

So what should a Bircher believe?

Incidentally, Julia Brown did not write the 1966 book (I Testify) published under her name by the Birch Society publishing arm. Julia hired Carleton Young to write it.

Julia rejected two chapters that Young sent to her for review because she "didn't want that type of information in her book". According to Julia, Carelton had fallen under the influence "of the Birchers" and she described their views as "lunatic right". Ouch!!

But, as interested students know, Julia underwent a major attitude change when she recognized the revenue potential of appearing as a paid speaker before Birch-sponsored committees around the country.

For a real hoot -- check out pages 10-12 of her book where she gives a totally false account of her marital history.

According to the book version, as a teenager living in Atlanta, she met her first husband (Edward Harris) and she married him when she was 17 years old (i.e. 1915). She then moved from Atlanta to Asheville NC. According to Julia, Harris died and she subsequently re-married in 1944 and settled in Cleveland.

The truth of the matter is starkly different:

(1) Her first marriage was in 1918.
(2) Edward Harris didn't "die" -- Julia divorced him.
(3) After her divorce, she married Jack Latimer in Atlanta
(4) She divorced Latimer in 1939
(5) She then married Fred Brice in Chicago but divorced
him in 1940
(6) She then married Curlee Brown in 1944 and considered
divorcing him as well, but changed her mind

I will be devoting a lengthy chapter of a book to Miss Julia and her habitual inability to tell the truth. I'm sure you can hardly wait!

"When black Americans look back in time and ask the question "who stood with us during our civil rights battles?"

Considering that the vote FOR the Civil Rights Act was 92% Republican and 62% Democrat, one has to wonder at the choice they eventually came to make.

I do believe, in fact, that the NAACP is a Communist front. They care nothing about the color of one's skin (all legal battles on that front won long ago) as much as political ideology that favors communist regimes. Explain their relentless attacks on Justice Brown, Condoleeza Rice, Justice Thomas and Colin Powell recently?

FBI HQ file 100-403529, serial #167 is a May 4, 1961 FBI document which discusses Communist infiltration of the NAACP:

“The NAACP is subject of Bufile 105-18867. No information is disclosed that this group is communist-infiltrated or controlled.”
