We have seen this threat before. Rachel Maddow's podcast Ultra tells the story

Of America First. Illuminating, riveting, and if we are smart, instructive.

Itís as if the invisible forces who cultivated the Lauren Boberts and EmptyGs of our era studied this history. Iím persuaded they did. The circus like tactics, the profoundly cynical and anti-American beliefs cloaked in the flag are all too familiar. If you havenít listened yet, please do. Wherever you listen to podcasts. If you donít this is a good reason to start.

5. This was a continuation of the conservative reich wing businessmen trying to over throw

FDR and the new deal...They liked the way Hitler treated big business..
The Businessman's plot was found out and never got going. When the nazi got involved it got started again.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_Plot

This is where I first heard it on a PBS radio program from the BBC years ago...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007tbs0

What amazes me is all this stuff is in the library of congress!!! It's been known for years.

7. Yep. We are just living in the echoes of that time.

I was surprised at how familiar it all felt.
And history has forgotten all about them until now.

8. Amazing the untaught history

I knew there was a Nazi-movement pre-WWII. I knew about America First and Lindburgh. I knew about the isolationists and anti-immigration/anit-jew zealots

The rest? I'm 67 years old, well read, and didn't have a fucking clue about the extent that the Nazi influence went in Congress and society. No idea about the sedition trials. Or the terrorist attacks.

It was all so very familiar. Shockingly so. It was a very established movement thruout the country.

I've started a book on the era, "Hitler's Friends". He had many here.

15. My Grandmother had one friend who would mutter about

Jewish conspiracies and Protocols of Zion when sheíd had to much to drink. Everyone thought she was just nuts.

This woman was her friend since they were children. They were not really close friends. They were still pals until they died but my Grandmother thought she was out of her mind to believe that garbage.

When I asked my grandmother about it she said ĒIna is not very bright in some ways.Ē

Now I understand where the poison came from. Iím thankful my family never ate it. I have to wonder if I would think the way I do if they had.

Would love to share them with someone who doesn't have any devices.
Thanks!

14. Wherever you download apps, go there and search podcast.

(Apple) Download an app. Mine is just called Podcast but the url is https://www.apple.com/apple-podcasts/

On your app search for Ultra Maddow

Once youíve found the podcast play an episode

Poke around for an option that looks like save or check settings, scroll down to the bit about downloading and deleting played episodes.

Thatís the best Iíve got at hand. If you are a Windows user Iím not sure but you can certainly find a way on google.

Good luck and thank you for sharing with your friend. Aloha.

11. I'm on episode 5 and the parallels with what's going on today are frightening.

Simply frightening.

I'm glad someone out there noticed. I only wish we could get more people to see the road ahead.

13. Have to listen to last ep (#8) It's been shocking, fascinating, troubling...

bc I didn't know how big this Pro-Nazis movement had gotten in the USA, and higher ups affected.

Yeah, knew about Lindberg, and Nazi rallies at the older MSG, but not all the rest! Wow

Highly recommend!👍

21. Isn't it! How do they make this available for free?

It took her about a year of work, not to mention the others who worked on it. I realize we listen to ads but is that where the money comes from? I wonder how the decisionmakers think about this.

Hard to believe actual ad time would fund it.

25. My guess is that the podcast is available for free because it feeds back into her show...

...i.e., her show that has ads.

Other podcasts have ads, or limp along on listener contributions.

23. "America First"

~
ďFrom this day forward, itís going to be only America first,Ē Trump said during his (2017) Inauguration, invoking a phrase that has troubling roots in nineteen-forties nativism and anti-Semitism. About a week later, Konstantin von Notz, a Green Party parliamentarian in the German Bundestag, tweeted, ďAmerica First is an update of _Deutschland, Deutschland Łber alles _. . .í

26. And yet, we witnessed Putin/Trump doing much the same thing to us in 2016 and many refused

to believe it while others simply ignored it. Much too focused on bashing HRC.
