As an example of the confidence with which policies are foisted on the Comintern sections and afterward justified, you will be interested to learn that a police raid recently carried out in Durban against defaulting native tax-payers, who, however, offered no resistance, was hailed in the Inprecorr recently as a triumph for the Comintern’s new South African slogan. The raid was falsely referred to as a “native revolt” due directly to the application of the new policy which had increased the influence of the C.P. What are the facts?
These statements incline South African Communists – both in the Party and out – to laugh. But they are apparently swallowed whole in other countries, where faithful worshipers at the shrine of Stalin acclaim the correctness of his line. When will the Comintern cease to mislead? In fact, its line in South Africa is proving as true as did its line in China.
