Churchill - Credits Atom Bomb With Stopping Reds

Churchill on speakers platform, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. View of large crowd applauding as he comes to mic in MCU. Speaking: ...I have no technical & no University education and just had to pick up a few things as I went along (applause). Shot of crowd.

15:13:59 We are now confronted w/ something quite as wicked, but in some ways more formidable than Hitler. Because Hitler had only the Herrenvolk pride, and anti-Semitic hatred to exploit. He had no fundamental theme. But these 14 men in the Kremlin have their hierarchy, & a church of Communist adepts, whose missionaries are in every country in a Fifth Column, obscure people about awaiting the day when they hope to be the absolute monsters of their fellow countrymen & pay off old scores. They have their anti-God religion and their Communist Doctrine of the entire subjugation of the individual to the State; knowing behind it stands the largest army in the world in the hands of a government pursuing Imperialistic Expansion as no Czar or Kaiser has ever done. I must not conceal from you tonight the truth as I see it. It is certain that Europe would have been Communized, like Czechoslovakia, London under bombardment some time ago, but for the deterrent of the atomic bomb in the hands of the United States. Standing applause by crowd & those on platform.
