We have seen this threat before. Rachel Maddow's podcast Ultra tells the story
Of America First. Illuminating, riveting, and if we are smart, instructive.
Its as if the invisible forces who cultivated the Lauren Boberts and EmptyGs of our era studied this history. Im persuaded they did. The circus like tactics, the profoundly cynical and anti-American beliefs cloaked in the flag are all too familiar. If you havent listened yet, please do. Wherever you listen to podcasts. If you dont this is a good reason to start.
John Favreau Offline. Theres a lot here.
FDR and the new deal...They liked the way Hitler treated big business..
The Businessman's plot was found out and never got going. When the nazi got involved it got started again.
This is where I first heard it on a PBS radio program from the BBC years ago...
What amazes me is all this stuff is in the library of congress!!! It's been known for years.
Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it.
I was surprised at how familiar it all felt.
And history has forgotten all about them until now.
I knew there was a Nazi-movement pre-WWII. I knew about America First and Lindburgh. I knew about the isolationists and anti-immigration/anit-jew zealots
The rest? I'm 67 years old, well read, and didn't have a fucking clue about the extent that the Nazi influence went in Congress and society. No idea about the sedition trials. Or the terrorist attacks.
It was all so very familiar. Shockingly so. It was a very established movement thruout the country.
I've started a book on the era, "Hitler's Friends". He had many here.
Jewish conspiracies and Protocols of Zion when shed had to much to drink. Everyone thought she was just nuts.
This woman was her friend since they were children. They were not really close friends. They were still pals until they died but my Grandmother thought she was out of her mind to believe that garbage.
When I asked my grandmother about it she said Ina is not very bright in some ways.
Now I understand where the poison came from. Im thankful my family never ate it. I have to wonder if I would think the way I do if they had.
Would love to share them with someone who doesn't have any devices.

Good luck and thank you for sharing with your friend. Aloha.
Wishing you the very best luck
I'm glad someone out there noticed. I only wish we could get more people to see the road ahead.
bc I didn't know how big this Pro-Nazis movement had gotten in the USA, and higher ups affected.
Yeah, knew about Lindberg, and Nazi rallies at the older MSG, but not all the rest! Wow
It took her about a year of work, not to mention the others who worked on it. I realize we listen to ads but is that where the money comes from? I wonder how the decisionmakers think about this.
...i.e., her show that has ads.
Other podcasts have ads, or limp along on listener contributions.
From this day forward, its going to be only America first, Trump said during his (2017) Inauguration, invoking a phrase that has troubling roots in nineteen-forties nativism and anti-Semitism. About a week later, Konstantin von Notz, a Green Party parliamentarian in the German Bundestag, tweeted, America First is an update of _Deutschland, Deutschland über alles _. . .
to believe it while others simply ignored it. Much too focused on bashing HRC.
