Father Charles E. Coughlin writes an editorial in his antisemitic publication Social Justice, daring the Post Office to ban it from the mail.
"Go ahead... do your worst; ban Social Justice — and then observe whether the tide of anti-Semitism in America fades out or flames from a prairie fire into an uncontrollable holocaust! The worst possible injustice that Social Justice could do to the Jews of America would be to discontinue publication of its own volition, seizing this opportunity to blame the Jews for our retirement.
Were we to succumb to such a satanic temptation, the pogroms which crimsoned the soil of Europe would rank as a poor second to what would occur on the Streets of New Y ork."
The last issue of Social Justice will be dated April 20 in order to avoid sedition charges.
