The Case Against the Reds Questions 1. Is Attorney General Palmer on the Left or the Right? Is he Authoritarian or Libertarian? Support your claim with evidence from the text. 2. What is really meant by the sentence in the fifth paragraph beginning “Upon these two basic certainties...?” Which other groups (besides Communists) in the present or past have been treated similarly? Do you think this treatment is legitimate? Explain. (P.S. This isn't one of those questions that only has one “appropriate” answer. Reasonable people disagree.) 3. Describe the relative importance of evidence and claims throughout the speech. What can that tell us about the purpose of the speech and/or the context in which it was delivered? 4. Use Analytical Method #1 (Implicit to Explicit) on the final sentence of the speech (“It is my belief...”). Come up with some good stuff.
