Even a Song of Freedom Can
Hit an Occasional Sour Note

By the Oak-Woodser
How wonderful to sing the
songs of freedom, to rejoice in
the deliverance from oppress-
ing forces, to be mindful of
the God-given right to seek
fulfillment in such ways as we
desire.
This is the way we celebrated
Passover during the past week.
And during our post-seder dis-
cuSsions, after the children had
gone to bed, many of us talked
of the multitude of places
where people are not yet free.
We spoke of South Africa
and Apartheid; of Russia, where
freedom chokes on fear; of our
own Southland, which yet per-
sists in policies of segregation.
Over 3,000 years and some
men still need to be taught
that their fellows were born
to be free—bound not by
shackles, but only loosely re-
strained in the gem-like brace-
lets of human decency.
Freedom, because it safe-
guards the rights of the in-
dividual, unfortunately means
that sometimes we must bear
with the rabble-rousers and
trouble-makers who use the
_ very word "freedom" to de-
clare their intent to promote
fascism.
And here we are posed with
the real puzzler. How far
should one go in allowing a
bigot, a crackpot, a peddler of
hate to use democratic pro-
cesses to espouse causes that
are its antithesis?
And how are we, as Jews in
a country founded upon and
dedicated to freedom, to react
to a man who uses the public
streets of the nation's capitol
to espouse our annihilation?
There is no such problem
to be faced in a totalitarian
state, where if one espouses
opposite causes one is dead—

-

if not physically at least po-
litically.
But here, a Faubus can speak
of running for the Presidency
or a Rockwell can organize an
American Nazi Party.
So subtle is this aspect of
our democracy that even our
major Jewish defense agencies
have differences of opinion.
And Jewish attorneys of the
American Civil Liberties Union
are asked to defend—and feel
an obligation to do so—a hench-
man of Rockwell in a bizare
court case involving a street
fight with a Jewish leader.
One of our leading agencies
says that Rockwell and his
numbers are so small that every
bit of publicity is a boost not
only to his ego but to his
organization.
Another agency arches - its
back at his every phrase and
would expose his every deed
of notoriety for the anti-demo-
cratic mouthings of a sick in-
dividual.
By ignoring a Rockwell,
you risk the • spread of his
venom to other misguided
people, especially in areas
where there are no Jews and
even less understanding of
Judaism. Yet, if you fight
him, you feed his vanity and
establish an atmosphere of
martyrdom that wins him a
larger audience and perhaps
even some sympathy from
those who fail to understand
the threat he makes to free-
dom.
What you hope will happen
is that he'll get laughed right
off his street corner. That, un-
doubtedly, is the only real solu-
tion, -and it can't be made only
by Jews
