Stormer has been unfaithful to reality

Reader comment on item: None Dare Call It Treason... 25 Years Later

Submitted by JJ Honick (United States), Dec 5, 2010 at 18:15

There is little doubt that communists, Soviet style, had many agents working here over years. What demeans Stormer's terribly one sided book is that he totally ignores the similarly treasonous work of the likes of Henry Ford, Fulton Lewis Jr, Col Robert McCormi, Charles Lindbergh and other major figures who not only helped to finance Hitler but often acted as propagandists for him. In one case, a GM executive even wrote a book proposing Fascism in America.

Major industrialists tried to get a Marine Corps hero to leade a plot to overthrow the Roosevelt White House. Major figures financed Nazi parades down Fifth Avenue in New York. This is only a short resume of treasonous activity by the far right no less dangerous than the folks Stormer sees. So why has he only given such short shrift in his book, perhaps a couple of references to Hitler? These cannot be simple oversights. In the end, he has become more novelist than historian.
