George W. Bush And Adolf Hitler

The GALLERY section today received a search for george w bush adolf hitler video clip. The page has a video clip showing a CNN military analyst comparing U.S. President George W. Bush with Adolf Hitler. Later, I read about a controversy over a contest called Bush in 30 Seconds conducted by an Internet group called Move, who had invited people to submit television advertisements against Bush. Republicans and a leading Jewish group, the Anti-Defamation League, said they were outraged by two submissions in the contest, which compared Mr. Bush to Hitler.

When Bush, Anti-Defamation League, and Hitler are spoke in the same context, it reminds me of the book George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography by Webster G. Tarpley & Anton Chaitkin.

On March 31, 1933, the American-Jewish Committee, controlled by the Warburgs, and the B’nai B’rith, heavily influenced by the Sulzbergers (owners of the New York Times), issued a formal, official joint statement of the two organizations, counseling “that no American boycott against Germany be encouraged,” and advising “that no further mass meetings be held or similar forms of agitation be employed. The American Jewish Committee and the B’nai B’rith (mother of the “Anti-Defamation League ”) continued with this hardline, no-attack-on-Hitler stance all through the 1930s, blunting the fight mounted by many Jews and other anti-fascists…

The American Jewish Congress hired Jacob Chaitkin as the legal director of the boycott against Nazi Germany. The American Federation of Labor cooperated with Jewish and other groups in the anti-import boycott. On the other side, virtually all the Nazi trade with the United States was under the supervision of the Harriman interests and functionaries such as Prescott Bush, father of President George (H. W.) Bush.

Meanwhile, the Warburgs demanded that American Jews not “agitate” against the Hitler government, or join the organized boycott. The Warburgs’ decision was carried out by the American Jewish Committee and the B’nai B’rith, who opposed the boycott as the Nazi military state grew increasingly powerful.

The historical coverup on these events is so tight that virtually the only expose of the Warburgs came in journalist John L. Spivak’s “Wall Street’s Fascist Conspiracy,” in the pro-communist New Masses periodical (Jan. 29 and Feb. 5, 1934). Spivak pointed out that the Warburgs controlled the American Jewish Committee, which opposed the anti-Nazi boycott, while their Kuhn Loeb and Co. had underwritten Nazi shipping; and he exposed the financing of pro-fascist political activities by the Warburgs and their partners and allies, many of whom were bigwigs in the American Jewish Committee and B’nai B’rith.

John L. Spivak later underwent a curious transformation, himself joining the coverup. In 1967, he wrote an autobiography (A Man in His Time, New York: Horizon Press), which praises the American Jewish Committee. The pro-fascism of the Warburgs does not appear in the book. The former “rebel” Spivak also praises the action arm of the B’nai B’rith, the Anti-Defamation League. Pathetically, he comments favorably that the League has spy files on the American populace which it shares with government agencies.

Thus is history erased; and those decisions, which direct history into one course or another, are lost to the knowledge of the current generation.
