M Y C O L L E C T I O N — A page from Quick magazine, April 1952, saying that the U.S. Immigration Service would begin to "round up aliens" who are "behind the scenes Communist operatives" and deport them. The fact this sad and sinister bit of propaganda is printed on the same page as record peace time steel production and "Annie Get Your Gun" ratings is incredible to me.
This particular example of radical right politics may date back almost sixty years, but it reminds me of the Teaparty/anti Obama rhetoric we're hearing more and more of every day. Do we never learn?
