I came across this on FB a few days ago and thought it was rather prescient in how it predicted our current events.

Published in 1947 and described by some as as 'Red Scare Propaganda', 'Is This Tomorrow' was a comic book that served as a warning against Communist infiltration

Early in the book, it covers issues such as racial strife, Antifa, media control, a slipping social morality, an abandonment of the sanctity of life, demonization of capitalism, countywide riots, attacks upon police officers and more.

From there is describes an relentlesss transformation of America from the land of freedom we've traditionally known to one that embraces communist control of the people for the greater good of the state.

The CPUSA has been working to change the US political scene for 100 years, since the time of the Russian revolution and the first world war. The effort was overt through the 1930's, but became primarily covert following WWII.

Who recognizes this "anti-fascist"?

I think that picture is from the early 1940's.

He was named for Woodrow Wilson and along with his buddy, Pete, wrote songs to be published in the Communist party newsletters of the day. I can almost guarantee that you have sung some of their songs.

I just went to his home town a couple of days ago. I live 1 hour from the Lyndon B. Johnson National Park in Johnson City. The home and the hanger with Air Force One is closed... but you can still walk around the farm and see all the various buildings. It's actually quite nice...
