15. Sad that such courage
By Robeson and many others seem to have done little in hindsight.

With pigs like Coulter and other revisionists pissing on these true 'freedom-fighters', it makes the spectre of more HUAC type 'show' trials more palatable to the public imagination by suggesting there are presumeably 'limits' to political freedom.

If you notice today, the Statists have learned to have most of this stuff done in secret and so we don't even have grainy black and white records of these heros standing up to the drunks, sadists and powermongers
