Abstract

In jailing Communists, the Truman Administration is jailing itself. This sounds very silly, and I put it that way deliberately, to be provoking. How could clapping a few unimportant Reds in jail be equated, even metaphorically, with jailing the Administration? Anyway it's smart stuff-so the Humanites say in private-how can they attack the Democrats as Reds so long as the Democrats are putting Reds in jail?
