Walter and Victor Reuther's Secret Memorandum (mobilizing opposition against the Right Wing)


Recommended Posts

This so-called "Reuther Memorandum" written in the early 1960's (c. 1961?) launched a concerted response from the far right against

the Reuther brothers (UAW union leaders) who were strong supporters and allies of JFK. This book was published by the Liberty Lobby, authored by Billy James Hargis of the Christian Crusade a leader of the Anti-Communist Liaison Committee of Correspondence and purchased by tens of thousands of rabid and vitriolic far right wingers. Hargis was a close friend of Alex Rorke, Charles Willoughby,

Edward Hunter, Sarah McLendon who were all on the ACL-Comm of Correspondence. These 5 were a microcosm of the elements

who were allied to kill JFK. "BJ" as Hargis was affectionately known, penned the forward to this opposition manuscript shortly thereafter.

It turns out that this was one of the last nails in the coffin of JFK. The alliance of these forces from the far right laid out the fate

of JFK and carried out his execution after their attempts at character assassination failed: The anti-Union forces, the anti-Semites, the integration opposition, the anti-Communist forces, the pro-Military forces (especially the anti-CIA foes from Army Intel) and the anti-Catholic elements all agreed on one thing: JFK Must Die, Dean Rusk and Dean Acheson must go and Bobby Kennedy must follow

shortly thereafter. And you think the CIA acting alone did it? You must be kidding! Really you must be kidding, right?
