The Bushes and Hitler's Appeasement

By Robert Parry
May 18, 2008

The irony of George W. Bush going before the Knesset and mocking the late Sen. William Borah for expressing surprise at Adolf Hitler’s 1939 invasion of Poland is that Bush’s own family played a much bigger role assisting the Nazis.

If Borah, an isolationist Republican from Idaho, sounded naïve saying “Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided,” then what should be said about Bush’s grandfather and other members of his family providing banking and industrial assistance to the Nazis as they built their war machine in the 1930s?

The archival evidence is now clear that Prescott Bush, the president’s grandfather, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from and collaborated with key financial backers of Nazi Germany.

That business relationship continued after Hitler invaded Poland in 1939 and even after Germany declared war on the United States following Japan’s bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941. It stopped only when the U.S. government seized assets of Bush-connected companies in late 1942 under the “Trading with the Enemy Act.”

So, perhaps instead of holding up Sen. Borah to ridicule, Bush might have acknowledged in his May 15 speech that his forebears also were blind to the dangers of Hitler.

Bush might have noted that his family’s wealth, which fueled his own political rise, was partly derived from Nazi collaboration and possibly from slave labor provided by Auschwitz and other concentration camps.

Do we ever learn from History?

The CONSTITUTION is NOT going to "collapse" into pulverized dust no matter how much thermate/explosives or planes they throw at it

I'm glad you posted this Betsy ...

The same thought was going thru my mind when I saw his speech on the news. How in the world could he say appeasement with his family history and current policy without laughing while his shoulders were bouncing up and down.

Think about the premise of "1984"

Black is white, lies are the truth...

Nearly everything these criminals say is a lie, the truth is 180% opposite of what comes out of their mouths.
Once you realize that nearly everything they say is a lie or in furtherance of a lie, discovering the truth becomes easier.

Right! Also, no Bushies were ever properly "vetted" by the

mainstream media! Furthermore, why didn't any of the Bushies political opponents bring any of this filth to light? (e.g., Gore & Kerry said nothing during their campaigns.)

People going for jobs at Burger King are vetted/background investigated more than the Bushies ever were!
