Quotations: Blasts From the Past

A few words of wisdom from those who made this country great:

  • “You hear about constitutional rights, free speech and the free press. Every time I hear these words I say to myself, ‘That man is a Red, that man is a communist!’ You never hear a real American talk like that.”
    –Mayor Frank Hague, Jersey City, New Jersey, 1938
  • “I don’t feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves.”

    –John Wayne

  • “Without censorship, things can get terribly confused in the public mind.”

    –General William Westmoreland
