This chapter recounts the full takeover of the AFT leadership by Counts and his liberal supporters, who by 1940, as Coudert’s inquisition unfolded, were able to push an anti-communist agenda on the entire union on the claim that communist teachers act in bad faith and must be expelled not only from the union, but from the schools as well. Supporting this campaign were liberals and social democratic intellectuals in New York City, who fashioned a justification of the emerging anti-communist crusade around the claim that communists inherently act in bad faith.
