Strange quote[edit]

Is there a non-conspiracionist source of this quote from Frankfurter? “The Order’s working and involvement in America is immense. The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.” I dont know if is true but if it is then someone put it into the article.

The earliest source for this quote was published 20 years after Frankfurter died, by Ratibor-Ray M. Jurjevich, The War on Christ in America: Christian Fortress in America Under Siege--Christophobes of the Media and of the Supreme Court in Action (1985), p. 296, attributing it to Felix Frankfurter as "an agent of the anti-American conspiracy". There is no earlier attribution to anything remotely similar to this quote, even in equally conspiratorial and anti-Semitic works, marking this as the date when this quote was manufactured.

For future reference, this is most likely a made up quote: — SJ
