1 July 1966. Thought for the Week: "These days I live, talk
and dream Rhodesia. I don't know when I have ever been involved in
such a loving and inspiring project."
"It is the belief of many that the spirit which made England great,
seems now to have become embodied in a small country called Rhodesia."
All press services carry the news this week that
the talks between officials of the British and Rhodesian Governments
are in a deadlock. As we go to press there is news over the radio that
talks will be resumed at a "summit" meeting in London on the 6th September.
We fail to see how talks between officials who have no power to decide
anything can "deadlock". These people can only clear the way for decisions
on a political level.
As each week goes by and Rhodesia not only survives, but consolidates her position, the worries of Mr. Wilson increase. Should Rhodesia despite her problems, gradually move into the position similar to South Africa, forced to become self reliant, rebuilding her economy to suit the changed circumstances. Mr. Wilson will be a two time loser, and the international cabal for which he is merely a runner will no doubt award him appropriately. They have no time for failures.
RACE & REVOLUTION
The current splurge of sensationalism being whipped
up by the press on the Negro "freedom" march in Mississippi is in line
with classical communist revolutionary tactics. As such the world press
is more than irresponsible. It shows that the communist conspiracy has
so penetrated this medium of mind conditioning as to exert powerful
influence over policies conducted by the so-called free press. We may
observe that this outbreak of Negro demonstrations in America is in
line with the climatic conditions. Therefore we can expect as the weather
becomes finer the demonstrations will be staged all complete with some
The leaders of the Negroes are obviously moving into the stage of premeditated violence. "White folk must go," and cries of "black power" are calculated to promote the necessary conditions for civil war dear to the heart of the revolutionary. None of these tactics could be successful without the co-operation of those supplying cheap worldwide publicity.
VIETNAM: THE NEXT STAGE APPROACHING?
There is little doubt that the internationalists are having a tough time even with everything in their favour to destroy any reserves of nationalism. One of their prize showpieces in this war to destroy national independence is the United Nations. We have been treated to some remarkably tearful predictions of what would become of us if we lost the services of this modern tower of Babel. But to top all this is the campaign to keep U Thant in his position as Secretary-General. It seems that the Burmese Socialist threatened not to stand for the next election to his position when his term expires. It seems he is frustrated over Vietnam.
Nothing more convincing could be evident that
everything is not going well for the internationalists than the report
in the Melbourne Herald 25.6.66. U Thant let it be known to a
number of diplomats, including the Australian Ambassador that he considers
no price is too high to pay for an end to hostilities in Vietnam - not
excluding a Communist take-over of South Vietnam. The report goes on
to say that there is talk in the UN that the Secretary General is "compromising
his duty of neutrality."
Nor does it surprise us that the Canadian Government of Lester Pearson is to the forefront in these moves. The Melbourne Herald again on 27.6.66 reported through their correspondent Don Peterson, in New York that Mr. Chester Ronning, described as Canada's "veteran Asian expert" (all the "experts" side with Uncle Ho) has been sent by Mr. Pearson and Mr. Martin to sound out Hanoi. From the report it seems that Hanoi is willing to listen.
After Air Marshal Ky's handling of the subversive
elements among the Buddhists and increasing military defeats of the
Viet Cong, plus increasing pressure on the American Government to adopt
a more realistic bombing policy in regard to Haiphong and other important
installations in North Vietnam, the position has definitely deteriorated
for the Communists in Vietnam. They must now rely more heavily on the
conspiracy in the international sphere to change the situation. Hence
Mr. U. Thant.
CUBA A NEW BASE FOR WORLD-WIDE SUBVERSION
While General de Gaulle has been helping along
the dangerous myth that the Soviet Union is now mellowing and that Western
Europe should seek closer links with the Soviet, the world's press has
been significantly silent about the intensification of Soviet global
subversion, directed from Cuba in association with the Chinese Communists.
Speaking at this Cuba conference, the Soviet
delegate, Sharaf Rashidov, urged the creation of a "united front against
the common enemy, international imperialism, headed by the United States",
and said that Russia is " responding to movements of liberation in Latin
America." This statement was no surprise to students of international
subversion, as twelve months previously, on January 18 1965 the Soviet
issued a communiqué directing the Communist Parties of the Western Hemisphere
to push "on an ever greater scale in the movement of solidarity with
Cuba on the entire continent."
There is little doubt that Cuba is being developed as a general headquarters for the planning and directing of wars of subversion in Asia, Africa and Latin America. These are the three major strategic target areas now being concentrated upon by Moscow and Peking.
TREASON CHARGE AGAINST ERIC BUTLER?
As expected, the delivery of a big tanker of
Australian and New Zealand petrol to Rhodesia on June 10th has enraged
the revolutionaries everywhere. When the Australian League of Rights
sponsored the fund to buy petrol for Rhodesia the Leftists lost no time
in attacking this proposal in the Federal Parliament. This attack reflected
the openly expressed attitude of the Communists.
During his Rhodesian tour Mr. Butler said that if the Australian Government wanted to take action, he would be pleased to defend himself when he returned to Australia. Mr. Butler arrived in Perth last week and "The Australian" of January 24 carried a letter from a Mr. Terence G. Lowes, Secretary of the Labor Club of the University of Newcastle NSW, calling for a treason charge against Mr. Butler and his associates. Mr. Lowes claims that the organising of petrol for Rhodesia was "a case of deliberate and premeditated treason, for it is the supplying of vital assistance to open rebels against Her Majesty, to whom all Australians, including Mr. Butler, are bound by law to show allegiance."
Commenting from Perth, Western Australia, Mr. Butler states: "It is clear that the successful organising of the "Petrol for Rhodesia" project has been a major successful blow against the revolutionaries and their dupes. I would welcome any charge which the Government cares to bring against me. This would enable the despicable double talk of the Government's spokesmen to be exposed, and to show to the Australian people how real treason is being perpetrated.
The Rhodesian Government is far more legal and constitutional than many of the Governments accepted by the Australian Government. It is upholding the traditional British concept of Civilization, law and order, and constitutional Government, at a time when the British Socialists are betraying these concepts.
It is most sickening to hear Socialists talking about loyalty to the Crown. This is more double-talk. The revolutionaries are becoming desperate because they now realise that the magnificent stand by the Rhodesians has brought into existence an upsurge of international anti-Communist activity, which is the first real threat the revolutionaries have experienced for a long time.
