"A clique of US industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. I have had plenty of opportunity in my post in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime. … Certain American industrialists had a great deal to do with bringing fascist regimes into being in both Germany and Italy. They extended aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there."
William E. Dodd
U.S. Ambassador to Germany
quoted in Facts and Fascism, by George Seldes, and Trading with the Enemy, by Charles Higham, 1937

Reader comments about this quote:
William Dodd here failed to mention the US Industrialists' criminal conspiratorialists, the international financiers / bankers (fed and friends). Other than that, said conspiring fascists have grown their statist theocracy, in the Union of Socialist Amerika (USA) to psychologically, religiously and in all ways fetter a once free people.

    They are rampant today in the entertainment industry. Sean Penn and his ilk.

    Not to mention how our government dumped tons of aid and money on Germany after WWI. Our government demanded they have a democratic government so they did and elected Hitler.

    The Rockefellers were/are the main ones. Their vehicles being the Federal Reserve, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and even the United Nations -- all founded with their direct aid. Such 'philanthropy' has brought America to its knees. For every dollar we are in debt, the Rockefellers profit. Of course the Rothschilds are the true rulers of the world -- they have been working at it for centuries. Most cannot even conceive of the wealth and power that these familes have. Tax the rich? Good luck! The taxes go to them! These guys wrote the book that takes 90% of a person's labor's, money, and property over a lifetime -- multiply that by every country using fiat currency under the thumb of their banking monopolies around the world.

    Sounds just like America today.

    Yes, the big industrialists of America were perfectly happy to work both sides of WWII. After all, its all money, and most of them were sociopaths with no sympathy for real people (a trait many of them still have). They first fell madly in love with Mussolini in the 20s (before Hitler's rise), who replaced government officials with representatives of the largest Italian corporations. Business in Italy was booming. Unfortunately, there continues to be confusion between Socialism and Fascism. They are opposite ends of the spectrum socialism comes from the left and is focused on the working class. Fascism is a product of the far right and inextricably tied to out-of-control capitalism. Yes, the Nazis used the term socialist but never trust what a government or political party calls ITSELF. A groups label is a form of propaganda, and they all want to sound appealing to their societies. Many of the ordinary people of Germany, originally attracted by socialist ideals, were furious with Hitler for abandoning socialist principles but not dropping the hypocrisy of the label. It was Mussolini, who originated the doctrine (and the word) of Fascism, who later identified Hitler's Germany as similarly fascist (which is why they both joined the Axis.) The USSR and Cuba are supposedly socialist, but why no socialist party? Just the communist. And it's the Peoples Republic of China. REPUBLIC? It's a dictatorship! And the people hardly matter! East Germany called itself the German Democratic Republic. The ONLY thing accurate about THAT label was German! And, yes, as the US drifts toward a police state and military hegemony, we need to recognize that neither of those is compatible with democracy, and history is repeating itself.

    What is ironic and terrible is the fact that the Nazi party was funded by the Rothschild's and Warberg and other wealthy industrialists. Our Liberty is not threatened by government or the military but by it's own greed, ineptitude and self-indulges - in other words the the average Joe and the International bankers.

    And by the way, for you who think this (NWO) is a socialist conspiracy, think again. Just look who profits from war - the last thing socialist's want is a world government - as socialist world government would be administered by the people and a fascist world government would be controlled by the wealthy elite (corporation's and international banking cartels) and their paid thugs, the military.

    Robert, would you clarify what you meant. (-; Were you saying socialists are psychotic with split personalities? Do, or do not socialists claim they want government to be administered by the people? But the socialists do, or do not want the world administered by the people? It is exactly the statist structure of a democracy, in toto - socialism that creates sufficient hate that war is possible, the profiteers always sink to the level of socialist administrators ;-) I for one don't want the tyranny of people rule, I want the freedom of natural law being administered.

    I only give it a three because this is not an opinion about philosopy or politics but it is the truth, the absolute truth. Corporations in this country are now free to do the same thing and they do statistically generally supporting so called conservatives/Republicans to the detriment of the individual and freedom, and the concerpt of one man, one vote, and of government by the people.

    Prescott Bush was laundering money for the Nazi's and IBM "New York" provided them with equipment to count the Jews they were murdering. If you want the truth in any situation, follow the money.

    Mike, if you do not understand what I am saying then any further retort would be useless. Take care, Robert
