. . .A CITY so disgraced
by a recent Liberal smear attempt that its citizens have just elected two
more Conservative Americans to public office.
. . .A CITY that is
an economic "boom town," not because of Federal handouts, but through conservative
economic and business practices.
. . .A CITY that will
continue to grow and prosper despite efforts by you and your administration
to penalize it for its non-conformity to New Frontierism.
. . .A CITY that rejected your philosophy
and policies in 1960 and will do so again in 1964--even more emphatically
MR. KENNEDY, despite contentions
on the part of your administration, the State Department, the Mayor of
Dallas, the Dallas City Council, and members of your party, we free-thinking
and America-thinking citizens of Dallas still have, through a Constitution
largely ignored by you, the right to address our grievances, to question
you, to disagree with you, and to criticize you.
In asserting this constitutional right, we wish to ask you publicly the following questions--indeed, questions of paramount importance and interest to all free peoples everywhere--which we trust you will answer. . .in public, without sophistry.
These questions are:
WHY is Latin America
turning either anti-American or Communistic, or both, despite increased
U. S. foreign aid, State Department policy, and your own Ivy-Tower pronouncements?
WHY do you say we have built a "wall of freedom" around Cuba when there is no freedom in Cuba today? Because of your policy, thousands of Cubans have been imprisoned, are starving and being persecuted--with thousands already murdered and thousands more awaiting execution and, in addition, the entire population of almost 7,000,000 Cubans are living in slavery.
you approved the sale of wheat and corn to our enemies when you know the
Communist soldiers "travel on their stomachs" just as ours do? Communist
soldiers are daily wounding and or killing American soldiers in South Viet
WHY did you host and
entertain Tito--Moscow's Trojan Horse--just a short time after our sworn
enemy, Khrushchev, embraced the Yugoslav dictator as a great hero and leader
you urged greater aid, comfort, recognition, and understanding for Yugoslavia,
Poland, Hungary, and other Communists countries, while turning your back
on the pleas of Hungarian, East German, Cuban and other anti-Communists
WHY did Cambodia kick
the U.S. out of its country after we poured nearly 400 Million Dollars
of aid into its ultra-leftist government?
WHY has Gus Hall, head
of the U.S. Communist Party praised almost every one of your policies and
announced that the party will endorse and support your re-election in 1964?
WHY have you banned
the showing at U.S. military bases of the film "Operation Abolition"--the
movie by the House Committee on Un-American Activities exposing Communism
WHY have you ordered
or permitted your brother Bobby, the Attorney General, to go soft on Communists,
fellow-travelers, and ultra-leftists in America, while permitting him to
persecute loyal Americans who criticize you, your administration, and your
WHY are you in favor of the U.S. continuing to give economic aid to Argentina, in spite of the fact that Argentina has just seized almost 400 Million Dollars of American private property?
WHY has the Foreign
Policy of the United States degenerated to the point that the C.I.A. is
arranging coups and having staunch Anti-Communists Allies of the U.S. bloodily
WHY have you scrapped
the Monroe Doctrine in favor of the "Spirit of Moscow"?
MR. KENNEDY, as citizens of the United States of
America, we DEMAND answers to these questions, and we want them
