those who betrayed their country. You are actively defending Alcibiades and his sell-out to Persia. 7 The Communists are not questioning, philosophizing or speculating. They are agents of a foreign power who wish to defeat us and set that power over us.
As I see it the Communist Party is an international Ku Klux Klan devoted to the extirpation of all human rights and liberties among nonmembers and the destruction of all governments which it does not control. It has enslaved the peoples of Russia and her neighbors, it has murdered millions, it is conducting a war against the United Nations, it has undercover agents in every country trained to destroy and taught that any method that wins for their despotism is a good method. Some of these agents sit on the Council of the Authors' League and protest vehemently when their continued advocacy of Russian policy brings them into disrepute. I think it should bring them into disrepute. I think they should be ousted from any position of influence or honor which they hold. I think this should be done legally and deliberately, and why an honest man like yourself thinks it should not be done is what I cannot understand.
The heart of our argument, of course, is that you believe our local Communists to be acceptable citizens, while I believe them to be enemy agents, engaged in wrecking us from within. The evidence on this side is over-whelming. I think you are ignorant of it or prefer to ignore it.
