Poppy Bush fired Nazis from Repuglican Party (1988)
Dubya is now calling the democrats fascists, but how does he explain Poppy firing these fascists from the Republican party and his close relationshisp to WWII Nazi Yaroslav Stetsko?

Regarding Bush's involvement with Nazis, the Village Voice reported on Nov 1, 1988 in "The Real Nazis Behind Every Bush," that "the seven protofascists given the boot by his campaign team two months earlier had been part of the GOP's systematic recruitment of the most extreme rightwing elements in the Eastern European ethnic communities of the United States... The Bush ally with perhaps the closest ties to Hitler's Germany was Yaroslav Stetsko, whose group, the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations , was a prominent participant in a 1983 White House meeting featuring talks by both President Reagan and the vice president. Bush signed a photograph taken at that meeting 'To the Honorable Yaroslav Stesko, With Best Wishes, George Bush.' ...

1. Fired only when it became an embarrassment.
But Nazis and Nazi sympathizers have made a home for themselves for years in the Republican Party as part of "ethnic outreach committees".

Nazi collaborators involved in George HW Bush's 1988 campaign included:

1.Radi Slavoff, GOP Heritage Council's executive director, and head of "Bulgarians for Bush." Slavoff was a member of a Bulgarian fascist group, and he put together an event in Washington honoring Holocaust denier, Austin App.

2.Florian Galdau, director of GOP outreach efforts among Romanians, and head of "Romanians for Bush." Galdau was once an Iron Guard recruiter, and he defended convicted Nazi war criminal Valerian Trifa.

3.Nicholas Nazarenko, leader of a Cossack GOP ethnic unit. Nazarenko was an ex-Waffen SS officer.

4.Method Balco, GOP activist. Balco organized yearly memorials for a Nazi puppet regime.

5.Walter Melianovich, head of the GOP's Byelorussian unit. Melianovich worked closely with many Nazi groups.

6.Bohdan Fedorak, leader of "Ukrainians for Bush." Fedorak headed a Nazi group involved in anti-Jewish wartime pogroms.

4. Excellent
Just a reminder, folks: there is an unbroken line of war profiteers/Nazi-sympathizers/fascist influence and tendencies running through the Bush family for 4 generations.

We don't just need to defeat Bush in Nov (if we can, given electronic voting, felon purges and other vote suppression and outright fraud), we need to run them out of politics forever.

11. No souce. However it has been the OBSERVED POLICY of the Imperial
Family to do this, since the Bloodless Coup of 2000.

They have been stopped not once. EVERYTHING they couldn't get through by legal means, has been accomplished anyway by resurfacing it in another place a short time later.

Faith-based Funding
Totali Information Awareness
Terrorism Futures market

much MUCH more...

With no Free Press to call them on it, one wonders how long thi sort of thing has been going on.

No link, but the pattern of Fraud and Abuse anmd disregard for the institutions of the Old American Republic suggests it's VERY LIKELY.

3. "George Bush and his fascist fan club"
Very good info on this page from 1988, in the form of a timeline:

A Radical Electronic Resource: George Bush, anti-Semites and the Big Lie

9/10/88 -- The Philadelphia Inquirer runs an article by David Lee Preston which corroborates much of the material in Washington Jewish Week. Preston also cites the Bellant report which describes how the Republican Party has been recruiting ethnic facists, racists and anti-Semites for over 20 years, through its Heritage Groups Council.

...

New York Post columnist Pete Hamill in a column titled "George Bush and his fascist fan club" quotes Menachem Rosensaft, president of the Labor Zionist Alliance and leader of the International Network of Children of the Holocaust:

"He accepted their resignations. And he said he was against anti-Semitism. But when they were gone, an aide said the charges against these men were `unsubstantiated and politically motivated.' Clearly Bush wanted them out once they were exposed, but he still wants the votes of their constituency."


9/29/88 -- Ron Kauffman, Northeast political director for Bush Campaign tells the Jewish Advocate newspaper the Bellant report as "totally outrageous." Mark Goodin, Bush Campaign spokesman, denounces Bellant's report and says people who voluntary resigned from campaign "vigorously defended" themselves against the charges. "We were not able to substantiate any of the allegations...These individuals maintain fierce opposition to the
charges. We certainly accept that explanation."

So the Bush campaign has come full circle to a total whitewash of the allegations. Just last week author Charles R. Allen Jr., an expert on the emigre Nazi network, questioned the candor of Bush when he "professed ignorance of pro-Nazi backgrounds" of the ethnic campaign supporters. Allen produced a 1983 photograph of George Bush shaking hands with Yaroslav Stetsko, then leader of the pro-Nazi Anti-bolshevik Bloc of Nations. The photo was taken at a White House reception. Bush signed the photo: "To the Honorable Yaroslav Stetsko with best wishes - George Bush." Allen also produced a 1976 RNC memo in which Bush, as RNC Chair, is reported to have reviewed the past work of the Republican Heritage Groups Council and set goals for the coming year. What Allen, Bellant and other critics conclude is that if George Bush becomes President he will continue to collaborate with Nazi collaborators, anti-Semites, fascists and racists as long as their hard-line anti-communism is useful to the Republican Party and a militant foreign policy.

10. I don't think they were ever actually FIRED anyway
Edited on Fri Jun-25-04 05:22 AM by tom_paine
They just moved to different operations, and a lazy corpulent, disgraceful media would never know.

The "Liberal Media" wouldn't tell us even if they did know.

13. I recall it being Shrub who did the actual firings
Edited on Fri Jun-25-04 06:30 AM by Solly Mack
Contrary to popular republican myth, Shrub was very much a Washington insider, as he worked for his fathers campaigns for President.


The Washington Post ran a story about the firings when they happened. The story broke prior to that...


and some of the ones fired went to work for the republican party...they had been working on GHWB's campaign staff when fired.

I remember when all this was happening...though not every detail to be sure.

Also, google Laszlo Pasztor and Republican Heritage Groups Council...you'll find he was a founding member.
