NUMBER ONE PUBLIC ENEMIES

WE RECOGNIZED Russia.

Now it is just as well to recognize what we recognized.

It is the same old Russia as under the Czars.

There is the same old wholesale indiscriminate massacre of opponents of the despotism, whether those slaughtered be guilty or innocent of crime.

*     *     *

There is the same old conflict for position and power in which the masses are trampled under the feet of the battling factions.

*     *     *

RIGHTS, liberties, opportunities, the people of Russia had not under the Czar and have not under Stalin.

Is it not about time for all of us Americans to realize that peace and progress and happiness only thrive in the soil of liberty and free democracy?

Is it not time for us to realize that those who are attempting to transform this American Republic into a Communistic tyranny of class against class are, above all others, the Number 1 Public Enemies of our country and our people?

They are the most flagrantly seditious and traitorous element of our community.

WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST.
