gee. Deep insight.
You've directly quoted something I did not say. Where did you go to school?
And this from a poster who suggests that Prescott Bush was the only Nazi sympathizer in America who was dealt with swiftly at the time. Not true. It wasn't until late 1942 and after tens of millions of Russians, Jews and other ethnics were slaughtered in Europe and Asia and Red Army looking good for victory in Russia and probable victory in Europe, too, that fascism began falling out of favour back in the U.S. The race to Berlin was on only after the Red Army turned the tables on the fascist invaders at Leningrad and Stalingrad. Bush and other American Nazi sypmathizers supported fascism early on.
Prescott Bush laundered Nazi money through a Dutch-based bank, we know. And a parade of American fascists have sold weapons to the mullahs in Iran, ran guns to Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge in "democratic Kampuchea", armed Contra terrorists who murdered women and children and bombed hospitals and schools, traded guns for drugs, did business deals with Osama bin Laden. They reconstructed Himmler's SS after the war and later funded mujahideen terrorists in Central Asia. Today their freedom fighters trained to murder innocents and hijack planes are referred to as "Al Qa'eda."
And ol’ granpa Prescott was an early supporter of the Eugenics movement racial purity or American Eugenics movement well into the 1950s and decades after most groups in North America had abandoned the idea after Nazi horrors were revealed over a decade earlier.
Yes they traded with the enemy for many months after the act was signed. Other US corporationists continued doing business as usual inside Nazi Germany by special US Governmental approval while it was common knowledge the Nazis were liquidating European Jews and as those fleeing Nazi occupations in Europe were barred from emigrating to America all the while.
We already know what happened in recent history, thank you very little. Anglo-American fascism and the ongoing Gladio terrorism carried over from the cold war era makes us want to throw up.
