Bush Family Tried to Bring Fascism To America Even Before Bush/Cheney Took Power

From Dick Cheney’s Energy Task Force to Bush’s shifting of Medicare dollars to Medicare Advantage Plans to the K-Street Project, the economic policies of modern Republicans are much more characteristic of fascism than of capitalism. Larisa Alexandrovna shows that fascism may be “genetic” in the Bush family.

The connection between Prescott Bush and Nazi Germany has been well known. A BBC Documentary shows that Prescott Bush was also part of an attempt in 1933 to overthrow FDR and replace him with a fascist government:

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 Hse & 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.

Since the 1930’s there have been three serious threats to our democratic system of government: the 1933 coup attempt, Watergate, and the erosion of liberties under George Bush. The Bush family was directly involved in two out of three.

    the documentary was broadcasted on radio4 the other day, and i was listening to it. just a couple of points: both the inquiry at the time and today’s research admitted that there was no link between the Liberty people and the plot.

    The speculation is that the link is missing because FDR stroke a deal with them so that they would not be exposed in exchanged for supporting (or not interfering with) the new deal.

    such speculation, i have to say, has no support apart from complaints by Butler – the high ranking general whom the plotters had tried to recrute and who exposed them – that some big names he had mentioned were left out by the enquiry.

    it’s all in the documentary anyway
