BUND HIGH WATER MARK. (maybe)

Zenith


German American Bund parade on East 86th St., New York City, October 30, 1939


Arguably, the zenith of the Bund's history occurred on February 20, 1939 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Some 20,000 people attended and heard Bund leader Fritz Kuhn criticize President Franklin D. Roosevelt by repeatedly referring to him as “Frank D. Rosenfeld”, calling his New Deal the "Jew Deal", and stating his belief of Bolshevik-Jewish American leadership. Most shocking to American sensibilities was the outbreak of violence between protesters and Bund storm troopers.

JUST MOVING ON

Dear MoveOn member,

A few weeks ago, Senator Bernie Sanders released a list of the 10 companies worst at paying their fair share in taxes. We liked it, and our designer Gabe quickly put it into chart form and put it up on our website.

What happened next was exciting: Tens of thousands of people started sharing the chart on Facebook. Blogs started posting links to it. It began to really blow up—and that gave us an idea: What if we could get this popular chart in front of millions of people today as they're finishing their taxes?

So here we go: We're going to try to saturate Facebook with the chart below, so that everyone sees the shameful behavior of these 10 companies. Can you join in? All you have to do is click this button to share it:

"TOIDI" SPELLED BACKWARDS (Toady?)

IDIOT: n. a member of a large and powerful tribe whose influence in
human affairs has always been dominant and controlling. the idiot's
activity is not confined to any special field of thought or action,
but "pervades and regulates the whole." he has the last word in
everything; his decision is unappealable. he sets the fashions and
opinion of taste, dictates the limitations of speech and circumscribes
conduct with a dead-line.

from Ambrose Bierce's Devil's Dictionary

FECK THE BRITS!

What a wonderful country we might be were we not a spin-off from these pretentious, pompous, self-absorbed people...the British. I'm on board with American Exceptionalism ONLY if by that we mean...EXCEPT for the Brits!!

Video of violent Afghan protests over Terry Jones Koran burning

Subtitle this one "The Power of one ignorant motherfucker to wreak havoc in an internet connected world." Terry Jones, like his friend Fred Phelps, would have remained regional phenomena just 30 years ago. Today, they have access via their computers, and can spread their venom far and wide.
