Fact of the Day
As the poster child for production and democracy, Henry Ford has a seemingly clean reputation. In reality, as an anti-Semite Henry Ford was actually a role model to Adolph Hitler. It is said that Ford was as much a propagator of fascism as he was of democracy.
Henry Ford was also known to be able to quote full excerpts of America's schoolmaster: McGuffery's Reader. McGuffery's Reader was a radically protestant (pun intended) grammar school story book that is said to have anti-Semitic undertones.
"The international financiers are behind all war. They are what is called the International Jew -- German Jews, French Jews, English Jews, American Jews. I believe that in all these countries except our own the Jewish financier is supreme... Here, the Jew is a threat."
-Henry Ford, 1920. New York World
