WITNESS FOR TROUT FISHING
 
        IN AMERICA PEACE
 
In San Francisco around Easter time last year, they had a
 
trout fishing in America peace parade. They had thousands
 
of red stickers printed and they pasted them on their small
 
foreign cars, and on means of national communication like
 
telephone poles.
 
 The stickers had WITNESS FOR TROUT FISHING IN AM–
 
ERICA PEACE printed on them.
 
 Then this group of college– and high-school—trained Com—
 
munists, along with some Communist clergymen and their
 
Marxist-taught children, marched to San Francisco from
 
Sunnyvale, a Communist nerve center about forty miles away.
 
 It took them four days to walk to San Francisco. They
 
stopped overnight at various towns along the way, and slept
 
on the lawns of fellow travelers.
 
 They carried with them Communist trout fishing in Ameri–
 
ca peace propaganda posters:
 
“DON’T DROP AN H-BOMB ON THE OLD FISHING HOLE I”
 
 “ISAAC WALTON WOULD’VE HATED THE BOMB!”
 
 “ROYAL COACHMAN, SI! ICBM, NO!”
 
 They carried with them many other trout fishing in Amer–
 
ica peace inducements, all following the Communist world
 
conquest line: the Gandhian nonviolence Trojan horse.
 
 When these young, hard-core brainwashed members of
 
the Communist conspiracy reached the “Panhandle, ” the
 
emigre Oklahoma Communist sector of San Francisco, thou–
 
sands of other Communists were waiting for them. These
 
were Communists who couldn’t walk very far. They barely
 
had enough strength to make it downtown.
 
  Thousands of Communists, protected by the police, marched
 
down to Union Square, located in the very heart of San Fran–
 
cisco. The Communist City Hall riots in 1960 had presented
 
evidence of it, the police let hundreds of Communists escape,
 
but the trout fishing in America peace parade was the final
 
indictment: police protection.
 
 Thousands of Communists marched right into the heart of
 
San Francisco, and Communist speakers incited them for
 
hours and the young people wanted to blow up Colt Tower, but
 
the Communist clergy told them to put away their plastic
 
bombs.
 
 “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should
 
do to you, do ye even so to them . . . There will be no need
 
for explosives, ” they said.
 
 America needs no other proof. The Red shadow of the
 
Gandhian nonviolence Trojan horse has fallen across Ameri–
 
ca, and San Francisco is its stable.
 
 Obsolete is the mad rapist’s legendary piece of candy. At
 
this very moment, Communist agents are handing out Witness
 
for trout fishing in America peace tracts to innocent children
 
riding the cable cars.
