Join the C.I.O. and Help Build a Soviet America: A Factual Narrative

New Haven: Constitutional Educational League, 1937. First Edition, Second Printing. A virulent attack by a far-right group on American labor leader John L. Lewis, who "works hand-in-glove with the disciples of revolution to help create a movement which he, himself, predicted some twelve years ago, would pave the way for the destruction of our government by the Communist forces." Interestingly, there's a notice on the rear wrapper offering a $1,000 reward "to anyone who can prove that a single charge made in this booklet is untrue." The author, Joseph P. Kamp (1900-1993), was heavily involved in far-right activities, principally by issuing pamphlets that took aim at labor, communists, and politicians whom he thought weren't sufficiently anti-communist. Kamp was sent to jail in 1950 for contempt of Congress; he had refused to hand over information on the funding of his organization, which was suspected of having pro-Nazi sympathies during World War II. During the 1950s, he was involved in a number of controversies related to his distribution of right-wing pamphlets. SCARCE. Item #1499
