Sometimes it skips a generation. No, not balding: the Bush Family's penchant for Facist Government

Posted By on July 25, 2007

Too insane not to share, I can’t wait to hear the whole thing.

From the BBC:

Document uncovers details of a planned coup in the USA in 1933 by a group of right-wing American businessmen

The coup was aimed at toppling President Franklin D Roosevelt with the help of half-a-million war veterans. The plotters, who were alleged to involve some of the most famous families in America, (owners of Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodtea, Maxwell House & George Bush’s Grandfather, Prescott) believed that their country should adopt the policies of Hitler and Mussolini to beat the great depression.

Mike Thomson investigates why so little is known about this biggest ever peacetime threat to American democracy.

This ought to be a good one. Listen HERE

    Read more about General Butler, a true patriotic American that exposed this attempted coup. He also wrote an amazing piece called War Is A Racket. Required reading.

  3. I’m not surprised. What i don’t get is people try and try to impeach the man and he hides Evidence To Keep himself from getting Impeached. That’s why people like Pelosi and Reid have to hold up on Impeachment. More is explained on my latest post on my blog.

    OK, I really shouldn’t read Harry Potter before reading stories like this… I just had an image of Teressa Heinz Kerry as a Death Eater™, carrying out her grand-father-in-law’s dream of facist rule.

    PS, there were plenty of “New World Order” conspiracies surrounding George Bush senior’s presidency to indicate that there was no skipping a generation.

    When I was a young boy of 6 or 7, my mother, aunt and uncle used to talk about this. My mother said the people behind it should have been executed but that they were too powerful so Roosevelt had to let it slide.

    And if you think about it, doing away with anything that remains of the New Deal is one of the main objectives of the Cons today. But when it comes to bringing fascism to America, they are succeeding where their fathers and grandfathers failed. They must have realized that the best way to boil the American people is not let them know they’re being boiled.

    Heil Bush – God Save the King – Hail to the Chief

    This administration is not going to leave office unless forced to leave. There will be an “event” either before the election, or after the election but before transfer of the Presidency, that will “prevent” the transfer of the Presidency and may even be used as a reason for nationwide martial law. The PNAC policies (see current administration), “New World Order” mentality, and the wholesale attack on our country and our Constitution by this administration should be proof enough for anyone with half a brain that fascism is their goal.


  7. Loud Patriot says:

    Oh! And, much to my dismay and disbelief that people don’t even see it, their succeeding.

    Brawlin Dem is right. The ONE true goal of the neo-cons is to dismantle the New Deal. Period. People say their goal is to create a theocracy. But that’s only a means to an end. So is the neo-con foreign policy. The one true goal is to let capitalism run amok again.
    This is why I always want to strangle all those “liberal” Ron Paul supporters and all of those CRAZY left wingers who claim that the New Deal and certain elements of the Progressive movement were PART of the “NWO”. If all of this Government intervention into the economy was fought tooth and nail by the elites both then and now, how is possible that it is party of their “plan”?? Grrrrr!

    …how is IT possible that it is PART of their plan…

    I doubt we will see an overt grab for the throne in 2008, but I do think there will be plenty of terrorist scares and incidents between now and then to keep the fear in the public conscience. No, I think the plan is to lay this f-ed up government on the next democratic administration, and then blame all the problems on them for the next four years. It’s in the best interest of big business/big insurance/big pharma to make life hell for any democratic President to try and get another neocon back into office.

    Massive debt, broken military, broken health care system, broken educational system, broken justice system, broken FEMA, broken NASA, broken NSA, broken homeland security, rotting infastructure, and on and on. This are the legacy of Dubya, and none of them will be cheap to fix.
