"[The Communist racketeers] were out to dominate Hollywood. They wanted a constant supply of of sympathetic money. They had the world's richest amusement market almost in their grip and they had bled it pallid and they were bleeding it white.They were conspiring to use the prestige of stars to propagandize and influence the millions of fans who adored those stars; they were conspiring to use writers to inject red bait into their scripts; directors to give the Red slant; [crew-members] to infect the whole unions, milking the town, turning it gradually to their purpose - the conversion of Hollywood into another Moscow from which they hoped to operate as a Red-dyeing plant to color the entire nation... It almost worked. It offered everything; popular stars, unending supplies of money, talent and the most effective propaganda medium in the world."
