True, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the Democrats would win though.A corrupt Socialist (yes I know he was just a union boss but this is the 60s) and a left-wing African-American? You would single-handedly resurrect the Democratic Party with that ticket.
You mean that lunatic lawyer? Caught up in the Grey Scare and detained for some time due to his previous association with the German-American Bund, released and now writes up propaganda for the Syrians denouncing Israel and the US control of it.Minor Question, What are the current activities of a certain "Francis Parker Yockey?" and is there a version of a Nazi party in America?
Good. They deserve persecution.You mean that lunatic lawyer? Caught up in the Grey Scare and detained for some time due to his previous association with the German-American Bund, released and now writes up propaganda for the Syrians denouncing Israel and the US control of it.
As for Nazis in America, they likely would have gone through a similar persecution as the Communist Party of the USA went through, officially banned around the time of Long's second term. But I can tell George Lincoln Rockwell, will have a different role on this Timeline. Rockwell remained in the military and served during Operation Sunset and Patton's expedition on Russia. He was very supportive to both MacArthur's and McCarthy's campaigns, coming in to oppose Long's "Communistic" Policies. Although he does have a certain admiration for Germany and believes China and communism is the enemy the US should focus on, as well as having a vitrolic hatred of the Japanese, he is not a Nazi in this world and there is the possibility I will use him for a major role later on.
To be fair, Yockey is just a wacky writer. If he was a spy? Sure. If he was actually able to incite, say, a lynch mob or even a organize a neighborhood watch? Yeah straight to jail. But the guy was just a mediocre lawyer who not even the RSHA/SD would bother with. His writing is a ramble which is borderline unreadable, if you want to go after someone who's actually a threat to democracy and is minimally competent to lead a Nazi America, then look for the types of Rockwell, not Yockey.Good. They deserve persecution.
Tbh i have been interested in a Pop Culture chapter of this TL for a while now, though i would prefer a chapter on Military technology (even if that was only mentioned way back in 2021 alongside a chapter on former Yugoslavia, and i doubt we’re getting either anytime soon).And I am quite tempted to make the last chapter be something more general than focusing on a single country, either with changes to Pop Culture or the start of the Space Race.
