Ask a Jew why old Jewish men preferred to buy Cadillacs.
They wouldn't buy Lincoln Continentals because those are Ford products.
Henry Ford was a devout Aryan, much like his colleagues Thomas Edison, Harvey Firestone, and most of the other multimillionaire industrialists of his era. Henry Ford was also very vocal in his prejudices against Jews and Blacks. He even bragged he liked Adolf Hitler's book, Mein Kampf, in which he is the only American mentioned. Ford proudly accepted the Grand Cross of the German Eagle award - the highest award the Nazi's could bestow on a foreigner - on July 30th, 1938, his 75th birthday, for his anti-Semitic writings in Detroit newspapers.
Henry Ford was more vocal than most industrialists of his era, but he certainly wasn't alone. Even celebrities like Charles Lindbergh, the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, were notorious racists. He wrote western prowess in aviation was "one of those priceless possessions which permit the White race to live at all in a pressing sea of Yellow, Black, and Brown." In the November, 1939 issue of Readers Digest, Lindbergh wrote "We, the heirs of European culture, are on the verge of a disastrous war, a war within our own family of nations, a war which will reduce the strength and destroy the treasures of the White race. Our civilization depends on peace among Western nations, and therefore on united strength. We can have peace and security only so long as we band together to preserve that most priceless possession, our inheritance of European blood, only so long as we guard ourselves against attack by foreign armies and dilution by foreign races." Adolf Hitler also awarded the Order of the German Eagle, but with a star, to Lindbergh.
The Aryan belief, the main political ideology in this country only recently discussed in public debate, was established by our county's founders. Even Thomas Jefferson, who had no great love of religion, -- "Religions are all alike – founded upon fables and mythologies"-- embraced it, as his suggestion for the Great Seal of the United States was no less than Hengist and Horsa, the two Germanic, Aryan Saxon brothers who, after invading England in 455 and becoming the first kings of Kent, ideologically founded the Anglo-Saxon race. The white supremacy ideology was embraced from Jedidah Morse to Ralph Waldo Emerson.
In 1907, Joseph P. Widney, Chancellor of the University of Southern California, wrote in his widely read two-volume set, The Race Life of the Aryan Peoples; "Despotism is the one type of government which seems to be normal to the mind of the Negroid, the Mongol, and the Semite; and to-day is to them as three thousand years ago."
The three laws of the Aryan dogma are: The white race founded all civilizations; when the white race maintains its whiteness, civilization is maintained; when the white race loses its whiteness, civilization is lost. Fairly straight forward, or rather, simple. It was the de facto rule of American politics until democrat Harry Truman integrated the American military in 1948 and social responsibilities were forced on us by the discovery of the atrocities of Nazi Germany. The Aryan sympathizers lost social face in America during the Civil Rights years of Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, but always simmered just below the medias' attention, until Barack Obama was elected president. Then it began to boil once again, erupting in Charlottesville, Virginia, under the mentorship of President Trump.
It is again in full swing, bolstered and propagated by the interests of many diverse powers, including foreign powers which have seeded and propagated the insidious disintegration of our Democratic government. If you think the descendant families of the wealthy, international industrialists of the past have changed, you haven't paid attention to the billions of dollars spent to defeat President Obama’s social programs, or the effort taken during his tenure to prevent ANY legislation proposed by a black President from being signed into the law of the land. Medical reform, as a simple and sought-after, popular cause, was a four year battle, and regardless of its value, is the prime target for repeal by Conservatives today.
The Aryans supremacists are smarter today, they simply mask their hatred and prejudices behind the Bible and their interpretation of the Constitution. Educating the masses about the history of racism and the Critical Race Theory, especially with the fear of future generations of Latino and Black becoming the voting majority in America, is not to their advantage. Democracy is not to their advantage.
