The extremist right wing groups constitute a threat to our liberty by creating suspicion and distrust of neighbor against neighbor. They discourage free speech and the right to dissent. They spread fear that the internal threat of Communism within America is more dangerous than the outer threat of Soviet power. They accuse our government, churches, labor unions, schools, libraries, of being “traitors and agents of the communist conspiracy.” The United Nations, they say, is a communist “plot.”
To counteract this disruptive force, National Women’s League urges constant vigilance in defense of the democratic process and the strengthening of the basic liberties of all Americans guaranteed in our Bill of Rights.
