Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Labor was much more 'infiltrated' by Mafioso types than by Communists. Walter Reuther, John Lewis and Harry Bridges were close to what would have passed for Labour or Social Democrats in the post war period. Accusations of 'Communism' were a deliberate smear by politicians without principle, such as Joe McCarthy.
