Hear John T. Flynn

This audio of an entire America First Committee rally from June 1941 is a real treat. The sound quality is crisp and clear:

The all-star line-up includes John T. Flynn (about 4:30 minutes into the audio), probably the most important activist in the “Old Right” during the 1940s and the 1950s.

Speaking after Flynn is John Cudahy, a former ambassador to Ireland, Belgium, and Poland and a Democrat. To enthusiastic applause, Cudahy not only condemns Roosevelt’s foreign policy but calls for reestablishment of the gold standard!

My old friend and associate at the Institute for Humane Studies, John E. Moser, has written the first, full-length biography of Flynn:
