I actually like Huey as a tragic villain allying with those scumbags out of convenience, and his America being markedly less shitty than theirs. (Yes, he's corrupt and a bit of a tyrant, but that's miles better than Moseley/Ford and Pelley)
I think this idea could be accomplished to an extent, like a path where Long trusts Gerald L K Smith and/or Charles Coughlin to much during the war and ends up regretting it afterwards. But having the Business Plot and KKK filling that roles is just too big of a leap for me, at least with how insistent the devs have been with making Kaiserreich “realistic”.I actually like Huey as a tragic villain allying with those scumbags out of convenience, and his America being markedly less shitty than theirs.

I’ve always liked the idea of the Buisness Plot being a federalist path. I mean a military junta and corporate kleptocrats? Practically made for each other. As for Huey’s ideology, his ruling style is enough to make him an autdem even if his day to day policies are socdem. That said, the Kaiserreich ideology system is wonky so it ends up lumping Huey in with the likes of Petain and Wrangel, so I can see why some may see SocDem as better.CMV : Huey should be SocDem and the business-friendly aspects of the AUS should instead become part of the Federalists. Maybe Pelley can stay as part of the AUS, given that he does implement some economic populism (for White Protestants only, of course).
Also, the AUS and CSA should start off in a coalition together.
This is actually a really interesting idea. This could also make a Caesar!MacArthur victory more interesting, as MacArthur definitely seems like the guy who would just sell out the American economy to the corporate interests that stayed loyal to him.the business-friendly aspects of the AUS should instead become part of the Federalists
Sounds like a really cool idea.A while back on this thread, when we were speculating on a “even more realistic version of KR”, I pitched the idea of Floyd Olson leading a SPA-AFP coalition called the “populists” against MacArthur’s “nationalists” in a spanish civil war esque two way setup. In my view the coalition would break down after Olson’s death if the war goes on for long enough, as Huey was still a capitalist and anti-communist OTL.
I rememer reading that the SS was scared by the iron guard, to the point that they agreed that it was a good idea to keep Antonescu fascistic junta in power to prevent the Iron guard from taking over. Hell, they drank human blood on their cerimonies.After looking at the event files I am happy to report that despite Cordreanu being somewhat toned down or defanged(irl apparently he wanted deindustrialization and neo-fedualism), he is NOT whitewashed in any capacity despite some worries.
The mod makes it clear what a fascist scumbag he and his movement are. After coming to power, they use brutality to intimidate people into voting for him, and they coordinate violent mob violence on political opponents, Jews, as well as cause synogague burnings. The LAM are very petty as well, trying to dig up details on the king's mistress(particularly relating to her Jewish ancestry) to discredit the king as weak and remove him. Oh, he also implements measures to make sure only Romanians get higher education.
