Harry Truman on fighting communism

"Now I am going to tell you how we are not going to fight communism. We are not going to transform our fine FBI into a Gestapo secret police. That is what some people would like to do. We are not going to try to control what our people read and say and think. We are not going to turn the United States into a right-wing totalitarian country in order to deal with a left-wing totalitarian threat."

-- Harry S. Truman, in a speech regarding the threat posed by domestic communism, April 24, 1950
