From Wikipedia:Explain, because I don't think you know much about either.
After Hitler took control in Germany in 1933, Borah thought well of the new chancellor's repudiation of the war guilt and other clauses of the Versailles treaty, and saw much of value in his new social and economic programs. Despite the Nazi mistreatment of the Jews, Borah did not speak out against Nazi Germany, though many urged him to do so, as he felt that each nation had the right to run its own affairs. Borah opposed large-scale immigration by Jews from Germany, feeling that was "impractical with millions of Americans unemployed". By 1938, Borah was speaking out against the continued persecutions, but still felt that the European issue could be settled if Germany's former colonies were returned.
When it comes to opposing Nazis, you either do or you don't. There's no equivocating necessary. It isn't so simple as "Nazis vs. Good Guys" but if you do nothing to stop the Nazis, you are absolutely one of the bad guys.The world is not divided into Nazis and Good Guys?
"Some day another Bismarck will arise and the Germans will wipe the French off the face of the earth — and I hope they do." https://books.google.com/books?id=lxoOdaCDbpEC&pg=PA593 I'm inclined to think this was more a statment of frustration (shared by many Americans in the 1920s) with France's recent foreign policy (the Ruhr occupation, etc.  ) than a serious anticipation of Hitler. In that same conversation, he said, "Mussolini is a coward. Somebody should call his bluff. Dictators are all cowards." His dislike for France and Italy had also been revealed by a radio address in 1923 when he accused them of "making waster paper of the Treaty of Versailles."
Interesting. Granted that this is in the realm of fantasy due to american isolationism, what would a "france-critical"(?) US administration look like? The "isolationist" Borah urged the US to protest the Ruhr occupation: https://www.nytimes.com/1923/05/05/...nator-wants-united-states-to-complain-of.html
Huey never said that. Indeed, he actually replied to the question if fascism ever came to America, that 'it will be called anti-fascism.'As Huey Long said, "if fascism ever comes to America, it will be under the banner of 100% Americanism." What most people don't realize was that "100% Americanism" was one of the slogans of the 1920s Klan, and Huey's audience would have understood that reference as well as we would understand a MAGA reference.
Mind elaborating? Reasonable people can also debate with an open mind.I disagree with almost everything you wrote there, but reasonable people do that from time to time.
No, thx. That kind of political discussion goes on another forum and I'm not getting dragged into bringing a mod hereNo it can't happen for a series of complex social, political and economic factors that mean if people want to posit the USA with a Nazi president the onus is on them to come up with a plausible scenario, which I frankly doubt they can do.
