Daley Plaza, November 1, 1985.
	
     CAROL MARIN: This is the group called Civilian Military 
Assistance rallying in Daley Plaza a week and a half ago. 
Rallying in praise of Ronald Reagan's Central American policy; 
rallying to raise money to overthrow the Sandinistas of Nicaragua.
	
     ART JONES: One, two, three, four. No more Reds, no more war.
	
     CAROL MARIN: On this day the head CMA cheerleader was Art 
Jones. Back in the Seventies, Art Jones was part of the Nazi 
movement in Cicero. Now in the Eighties, his America First 
Committee works with national neo-Nazi and white far-right organizations.
	
     ART JONES: Communism will be defeated.
	
     CAROL MARIN: Jones, a Vietnam veteran, says he is a patriot, 
and wants to stop the spread of communism in Central America; so 
does the CMA and so does the World Anti-Communist League.

     JOHN SINGLAUB: I represent hundreds of thousands of 
Americans who are sympathetic to your cause and want to help.
	
     CAROL MARIN: Both the CMA and the World Anti-Communist 
League, the latter reportedly at the urging of President Reagan, 
have been supplying financial support for Nicaraguan rebels. But 
for some time now there has been a question of whether these 
anti-communist groups have been attracting, and in some cases 
enlisting, people like Art Jones--people who combine neo-Nazism 
with their anti-communism.
	
     CHIP BERLET: It's clear that there are neo-Nazis and 
anti-Semites in both the World Anti-Communist League and CMA.
	
     CAROL MARIN: People who study the far right, like Chip 
Berlet of Midwest Research, believe there is within the 
anti-communist movement now, a struggle going on.
	
     CHIP BERLET: Inside the World Anti-Communist League itself 
there has been a fight for almost twenty years; with the 
anti-communists who are not Nazis and not anti-Semites trying to 
get rid of the Nazis and anti-Semites...and they haven't succeeded.
	
     CAROL MARIN: Tonight, in at least one case, they have, 
however. Since our recent inquiries about Art Jones and his 
relationship to the CMA, Jones has been thrown out by the Illinos 
leader of CMA who says his group disavows racism and 
anti-Semitism. Meanwhile, Art Jones tonight told us he will still 
privately help the CMA while he works on other things, like his 
next project--organizing the Klan, Aryan Nations and neo-Nazis to 
protest the upcoming national holiday marking the birth of Dr. 
Martin Luther King.
