Workers of the World Unite! | Destroy Communism

Chicago: Christian Veterans of America, [ca. 1946]. A small broadside courtesy of Frederick Kister’s Christian Veterans of America, which appropriates Marx’s famous dictum into a nationalist, pro-labor message.

The Christian Veterans of America was a post-war nationalist group founded by veteran Frederick Kister. Kister blamed the Jews for Communism and campaigned on behalf of veterans who he maintained were forced to compete with alien labor for scarce jobs. The group established chapters in a number of cities and featured prominently in Arthur Derounian’s post-war expose, The Plotters.

Offset printed in red on cream stock (11” x 8 ½”). Union bug to the bottom. Toning to paper, else a well-preserved copy of a scarce item. Not found by us in OCLC. Any CVA material is unbelievably scarce. Item #10032
