Says GOP And Liberty League To Enslave People
DEVELOPMENT FASCISTS TO BE NECESSITY
FARLEY ATTACKS LIBERTY
LEAGUE AS ALLY OF G. 0. P
TO ENSLAVE U. S, PEOPLE
(By The Associated Press)
Miami, Feb. 6, — In a
direct, sharply worded at
tack on the American Lib
erty League, Chairman of
the Democratic National
Committee, James A. Far
ley, termed the group, the
“center and soul of preda
tory powers.”
Making not a single re
ference to Alfred A. Smith
who recently addressed a
Liberty League Dinner in
Washington, D. C., Farley
labelled the League as a
militant ally of the Repub
lican National Committee.
The League, Farley said,
would perpetuate the sorry
business of the Mellpns
and Morgans, in reducing
95 percent of the people of
this nation to the status of
serfs.”
Continuing, Farley de
clared “the American Lib
erty League speaks as con
clusively for the reaction
aries of their party as does
Herbert Hoover, the U. S.
Chamber of Commerce, the
National Manufacturer’s
Association. Indeed the or
ganization is composed to
a large extent, of represen
tatives of that big business
which brought the United
States to the outer rim of
ruin.”
