Scope and Content Note

Rockwell begins by criticizing those who would try to stop him from speaking. He says Jews do not attempt to stop communists from speaking on college campuses, but scream when an anti-communist tries to speak on campus.
The thesis of Rockwell's talk is that one cannot effectively run a democracy when lacking any information, and much information has been suppressed in America. He claims the Russian Revolution was the capture of Russia by the Jews. He further says that Jewish people rise to the top of businesses in order to control what is and is not published. Moreover, he claims that all corruptions of institutions (abstract art, free form poetry, etc.) is being done by Jewish people.
He further criticizes what he calls the growth of liberalism. Included, he believes there is a difference between white and black people aside from the color of skin, in opposition to the belief of liberals. He claims the civil rights movement is run by communists. Rockwell also laments the growing number of visible (his word) "queer" people. He wants America to be a white, Christian nation.
The crowd often laughs at his claims.
He defines communism as the mutiny of quantity versus quality; the takeover of society by what he calls inferior groups of people.
The tape sounds like it is a copy of a disc record.
