If there was one man who would not have been surprised to learn that the earliest election results in Twenty-First Century America were placing socialists in high office, that man would have been Martin Dies (1901 - 1972). Dies was the co-founder of the House Committee on Un-American Activities (aka, HUAC or "the Dies Committee), that investigated the possible disloyalty and subversive undertakings of private citizens, public employees and organizations suspected of having Fascist or Communist loyalties. In this article Dies looks back at the past thirty years and the failings of the U.S. Government to halt the migration of Marxists into the country. He was especially irked by the part played by his own Democratic party to stem this tide:
"Over the last thirty years the United States, as well as Central and South America, has been invaded repeatedly by ununiformed soldiers of the Soviet Government - agents of the International Communist Conspiracy. Our government has been furnished repeatedly with conclusive evidence of this invasion and yet has done nothing to exclude and deport the invaders... To make matters worse, 'Liberal' administrations since the time of Franklin Roosevelt have urged that what few immigration restrictions we have to prevent their entrance be removed... Roosevelt was not interested in the fact that many of those entering were Communists; after all, he told me that some of his best friends were Communists."
