Who talking about whom?
It was both unfortunate and disasterous that the Republican Party nominated —— as its candidate for President of the United States. In foreign policy, Mr. —— advocated a narrow nationalism, a crippling isolationism, and a trigger-happy attitude that could plunge the whole world into the dark abyss of annihilation. On social and economic issues, Mr. —— represented an unrealistic conservatism that was totally out of touch with the realities of the century. The issue of poverty compelled the attention of all citizens of our country. —— had neither the concern nor the comprehension necessary to grapple with this problem of poverty in the fashion that the historical moment dictated. On the urgent issue of civil rights, —— represented a philosophy that was morally indefensible and socially suicidal. While not himself a bigot, Mr. —— articulated a philosophy which gave aid and comfort to the bigot. His candidacy and philosophy would serve as an umbrella under which extremists of all stripes would stand. In the light of these facts and because of my love for America, I had no alternative but to urge every person of goodwill to vote against Mr. —— and to withdraw support from any Republican candidate that did not publicly disassociate himself from —— and his philosophy.
