The Nachrichtendienst supplies inte resting data upon communist propaganda in the U.S.A.
It is carried out by 35,000 paid agitators, and 6,000 platform speakers; it owns 700 periodicals, and is supported by the United League of Trade-Unions, twentyone communist trade-unions, the Young Pioneers, the League of Working Youths, sixty-two communist summer camps, twenty-five communist students' unions, and so on.
Now the communists are striving to get a footing in religious organisations, mainly among the Protestant Dissenters.
For this purpose they camouflage themselves as Christians and champions of peace.
A ballot upon "war and Fascism" is being propagated amongst Baptists and Congregationalists, which in reality is nothing but hidden communist propaganda which, whilst attacking all patriotic national elements, extols the Soviet Union as the most peaceful country. At the same time, an open propaganda of purely communist demands, such as nationalisation of means of production, collectivisation, etc., is carried out.
This underhand activity has been unmasked in the New York American (December 12, 1935) by two prominent ministers, Mr. F. A. Frazier (Congregationalist) and the Baptist Pastor Mitchell.
