Read Groucho Marx’s FBI File

Groucho Marxist

Groucho Marxist

He wasn’t just Hollywood. He wasn’t just Jewish. Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx was a proud and vocal liberal Democrat with a mouth and a wit that should have been registered as lethal weapons.

So, naturally, the FBI started a file on him.

“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.”

This would be an example of those famous words, nearly 300 pages worth, actually.

Click. Click again. And again. And again.

Thrill to the the chase. Titter at the figleafed innuendo. Marvel at the waste of taxpayer dollars.

That’s your weekend reading list, sorted.
