4. Rec'd even though it's a history channel production
A bit biased, but there are some nuggets in there.

5. Gee. Wall Street considered FDR ''a traitor to his class.''
The traitors thought they'd have to pay for the "socialist" government programs.
Truly explains how little "trickle down" there's really been since the Great Society.

Background: Smedley Butler Stopped American Fascist Conspiracy to Overthrow FDR

Thank you for the link to the program, bobbolink. All Americans --
and all people who care about freedom --
should know about the good General Butler.

6. K&R, going to watch this tonight.
Edited on Sun Jul-26-09 08:44 PM by Naturyl
Why don't the schools teach us about this fascist plot? Could it be that only the "education" which is likely to result in an obedient, indoctrinated workforce is provided, and anything likely to undermine that is omitted?

Hint: Yes.

7. All of the above....but, you know, it's also partly because FDR himself QUASHED it.
Which led to the failure to follow up on Nixon, Iran-Contra, etc., on down to the crimes of the Bush-Cheney era.

I need to watch that last part again, because I think it's tied in to these later crimes......

:(

9. Marked fer tomorrow.
43 minutes is tough to do before bed, but I am watching this.

The more things that go in wormholes will be to ALL of our detriment.

16. Recommended, because it's always the "uber patriots" who commit treason.
Just as now, it is the rightwingers who daily preach treason against the president and the country.

17. Butler's voice sounds a lot like George C. Scott in "Patton"
Just what you'd expect from this lifelong warrior.

22. A fascist takeover of American Democracy for the purpose of doing Wall Street's Bidding.
Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.

Thank GOD we've learned from this sort of chicanery and not allowed the plutocratic influence of Corporate America anywhere NEAR our precious foreign policy, economy and democracy.

. . . . Oh wait . . . .
