Communists Stage Fake Birthday Parties, 1962

I never realized that the communists in America resorted to such underhanded tactics to promote their cause. Good thing the FBI was on top of this scheme!

From the Chicago Daily Tribune - June 6, 1962.

And the Dems and Reps thought what a great idea, thus was born the $300 a plate dinners with rubber chicken and boring speakers.

I've never, ever, met an honest-to-God communist. Socialists by the dozen but never anyone who wanted to give up what he had to provide for someone else's comfort and/or well being.

$300 a plate??? Wow! Inflation sure has hit that number hard.

I used to work for a guy who was a Polish Jew, born in Russia. The FBI used to send a fresh-faced young someone every couple of years to ask probing questions to determine if he was a sleeper. His reply was to say that, if the US wants to stamp out Communism in the US, round up everyone they suspect of Leftist leanings, and send them, at US expense, to live in Russia for a couple of years. They'll come back staunch Republicans, and it has to be cheaper than trying to catch sleeper agents.

The thing is about those 'nazis' is that they've got the right idea but are just couching it wrong. The influx of illegals is getting pretty bad and Greece is one of the main entry points along with Italy due to the accessibility by sea from Africa.

They come here and live off the 'state' which is already over burdened with rampant socialism and cronyism. Last year we paid more in taxes than we had income to the tune of about 120% and didn't get @#[email protected]# to show for it.

Something has to be done to reverse the condition or it's going to end in a major explosion.

BTW, how's the USA doing with it's 13,000,000 illegals and 3,000+ a day new arrivals in Texas????

Think about it.

You're attempting to brand the current spate of nationalism with what happened back in the 40's. That's too broad a brush! All except a few of the nuts that are being featured on 99% of the news (I use that term lightly) casts most of these people just want this influx of illegals gone along with their drain on the economy.

There's also an undeniable impact on crime being visited upon us by these 'refugees'. Last year, in the main square of Athens (which has turned into a no-go zone after dark) two of them got into a sword fight!
