"Communist [including Socialist] leaders have steadily insisted that Communism cannot live in just one country.  Just as we fought to make the world safe for democracy, so they are fighting to make the world safe for Communism. They are fighting this fight today.  Every country must become Communistic, according to their idea.  So they have sent out missionaries.  The have supplied them well with funds.  They have won converts. These converts have been organized into little groups called cells," each acting as a unit under the orders of a superior.  It is almost a military organization.  They attack where there is unemployment.  They stir up discontent among those oppressed. ... They work their way into the unions, where they form compact blocks.  They publish and distribute little papers and pamphlets. At the New York Times they pass out one called "Better Times." At the Presbyterian Hospital, it is called "The Medical Worker." At the College of the City of New York, it is called "Professor, Worker, Student." At Teachers College, it is called "The Educational Vanguard." These are scurrilous sheets.  In one issue I noted twenty-nine errors of fact.  After a recent address of mine they passed out a Dodger attacking me, with a deliberate error of fact in each paragraph.  These pamphlets cost money - more than $100 an issue.  The idea is to try to entice into their web those generous and public-spirited teachers, preachers, social workers and reformers who know distress and want to do something about it.  These Communists know what they are doing.  They follow their orders.  Particularly they would like to dominate our newspapers, our colleges and our schools.  The campaign is much alike all over the world.  I have seen the same articles, almost the same pamphlets, in France and England as in the United States.  

You see, when it comes to fighting Communists I am a battle-scared veteran.  But after twenty years I cannot tell one by looking, at him.  However, only the leaders proclaim their membership.  The clever are silent, hidden, anonymous, boring from within. You can only tell a Communist by his ideas."

Their method of working their way to the seizures of power he describes as follows:

"Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed.  Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union.  Talk on soap boxes. Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue. Play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class.  Try to break people to picketing, strikes, and mass meetings.  Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible, so that the people will lose confidence.  Then in time of national peril [a fake pandemic], during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or on a general strike, walk (he didn't say run, rush, attack, etc. He said, 'walk.') into the capitol and seize the power (possibly by an election).  A well-organized minority can work wonders."

I came across this address last night and was alarmed by the similarities today, more than eighty years later.  Thought for the day, "Evil will not rest - it is relentless; therefore, We Must Be Equally Relentless."
