  8. The Communist Party Dissolution Bill- Reaction
    List
    Public

    What was the reaction of the Australian public to the Communist Party Dissolution Bill and how did both sides of the arguments of For and Against present themselves through local news outlets?

    The Communist Party Dissolution Bill was a divided issue that dominated Australian newspapers and homes in 1949 through to 1950. This was a fundamental split in the politics of Australia and was heavily discussed and propagated by both the “Yes” and “No” sides as they protested the others views and ideals. The research that has been conducted highlights this discrepancy of views represented through primary sources of letters and newspaper articles showing both sides of public opinion on the dissolution bill. The comparison between the Queensland right-winged newspapers and the newspapers specifically written for the Working-class who rely on a certain level of socialism is obvious and is emphasised in these primary sources. The Queensland right-winged newspapers are very clear with their support of the dissolution of the Australian Communist Party claiming that the parallels between the Communist Party and Trade Unions are falsely perpetrated by the Communist Party leaders and that they are “…falsely describing anti-Communist laws as anti-Trade Union laws,” and that the arguments brought up by the socialists and left-wing supporters are in fact perpetrated by the Communists themselves. The Illustration (6) shows us the kind of propaganda that the “Yes” side used to sway voters using incredibly emotional language and binary terms to suggest that you are either an Australian or a Communist and that there is no such thing as a sharing of ideals between these two states of being. These ideals differ for the “No” side of the argument and this shows that they were both arguing their ideals with just as much vigour, there was no perceived ‘right answer’ and Australia was split. The primary source listed as 8th in this list shows that there were protests against the Menzies plan to dissolve the Communist Party not just from those of great political standing but from housewives as well and this protest is continued in Socialist newspapers from the time. In the 1st source in this list there is long article that again uses emotive language to discredit Menzies’ actions as a Prime Minister stating that the “…the party to which Mr. Menzies belongs pursues policies and aims which, if consummated, would lead inevitably to Fascist-like changes in the social structure.” These primary sources support my question as they analyse the differing ideals of the overall reaction to the introduced Bill, highlighting its importance in Australian Politics.
