1938 Fascism or Freedom


The 'JW's' claim that Fascism, Nazism and the Roman Catholic Hierarchy have
combined to destroy the right of the people to assemble to worship. The flyer
promotes a radio show delivered in England which the above groups are
attempteing to prevent being heard. It claims city officials in New Orleans and
Rochester deny these people the right to assemble to hear this speech. It goes
on to say that a polic officer, one McNamara, a Catholic Fascist, gave his
police the command to break their broadcasting equipment, and if anyone
interferes, shoot to kill!'
