Perspective: "Race Mixing is Communism"

People here have had great difficulty recalling the way McCarthy used accusations of 'communist' to rip this country apart. This label has been used in the past as a tool by others motivated by hatred and fear who will say anything to forward their own agenda. No one wanted to write "I am a racist" on a sign. If you want to silence debate without a fair-minded debate, simply demonize your opposition. It's much easier.

Here is a photo of a rally at the State Capital Building in Little Rock, AK in 1959. They were protesting against racial integration at a local high school. In their minds, race mixing was symptom of the 'communist threat.' Anyone supporting race mixing was a communist and a traitor to the United States. If this threat went unchallenged it would destroy the United States and "everything the founding fathers fought for." You'll also recognize the reference to the "Antichrist" in the middle - seems familiar doesn't it?

Now, history repeats itself because we didn't learn. Maybe we never will.

Your first image link says to me:

You don't have permission to access /academic/cas/gpa/posters/ja1935aa.jpg on this server.

If it was a comparison, I'm missing half of it and others probably are too.

Just to let you know.

It would seem that people didn't know what Communism means back then either.

Not that it surprises me. Accusing somebody or something of being 'communist' is apparently the de facto argument for those who don't actually have a valid point to make.

Schools in the United States: failing students since 1959 (and probably years earlier)!

The word Communist back then, .... was used as " Terrorist" is today.

simply a way to make a villain out of anyone or anything they dont agree with.
