Ephesians 5:6 (KJV) Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Alexander Trachetenberg, (1885-1966), longtime activist in the Socialist Party of America and later in the Communist Party USA. From a speech in Madison Square Garden in 1944.
“When we get ready to take the United States we will not take it under the label of communism; we will not take it under the label of socialism. These labels are unpleasant to the American people and have been speared too much. We will take the United States under labels made very lovable; we will take it under liberalism, under progressivism, under democracy. But take it we will.”
