In the 1930s, the New York Times praised Adolf Hitler

Earlier this year, the media praised Kim Jong Un's sister in the Olympics despite her being part of a regime that mass murdered millions of innocent people.

Sadly, this isn't the first time the media fell for a mass murderer's charms.

In the 1930s, the media was swooned by Hitler and portrayed him as a kind man beneath his angry persona.




Equally haunting, however, are another set of images that are oft-forgotten: In the years preceding World War II, news outlets from home magazines to the New York Times ran profiles of the Nazi leader that portrayed him as a country gentleman — a man who ate vegetarian, played catch with his dogs and took post-meal strolls outside his mountain estate.



Even as late as 1939, Hitler was still given praise by the US media even though its becoming increasingly obvious that something was off about him.




On Aug. 20, 1939, the New York Times Magazine published an article describing the day-to-day life at Hitler’s mountain chalet.

This was 12 days before Germany invaded Poland and started World War II, nine months after the violent anti-Jewish pogroms of Kristallnacht, and six years after the first Nazi concentration camp opened at Dachau.

Many people including Sinclair Lewis tried to warn people about how dangerous Hitler and the Nazis were only to be ignored. Sinclair Lewis himself wrote the book It Can't Happen Here because his wife visited Germany and talked to a Nazi official in 1934 and learned about their plans from the official.

New York Times, giving fake news since 1930s.

The MSM should get punished for the twisting of information to make it seem opposite of what is the truth. Media should be somewhat regulated like it used to be, it has gotten much more chaotic for our society today than it used to be. It is turning into the National enquirer.

Yep more regulations, more power given to the government over private business.
That will solve all our problems right.

Wouldn't a more educated populace be a better fix to this problem?

So how should the media portray the U.S. and its leaders, I wonder...


Over a period of three years or so, we killed off — what — 20 percent of the population,” Air Force Gen. Curtis LeMay, head of the Strategic Air Command during the Korean War, told the Office of Air Force History in 1984. Dean Rusk, a supporter of the war and later secretary of state, said the United States bombed “everything that moved in North Korea, every brick standing on top of another.” After running low on urban targets, U.S. bombers destroyed hydroelectric and irrigation dams in the later stages of the war, flooding farmland and destroying crops.

Although the ferocity of the bombing was criticized as racist and unjustified elsewhere in the world, it was never a big story back home.

The U.S. war crime North Korea won’t forget

Yes they did. There was a short period of time back when Hitler was first gaining power that not only the NYT but ALL the mainstream capitalist media praised him. The great fear at that time was that the communist revolution would spill out of Russia and over into Germany and take over Europe.
So the capitalists, as exemplified by the information conglomerates went out of their way to support anyone who might stop that from happening. This was also the period in which numerous international industrialists gave Hitler financial support to gain that power. Chief among those industrialists was Henry Ford. Yes indeed, western capitalist were all a flutter to find a way to stop communism from ruining their cash cow of an economic system.

Uhhhh for your information I'm no Trump supporter and I think he and Fox News are just as guilty when it comes to fake news.

Not all anti establishment types are Trump supporters. In fact, I see Trump as part of the problem too.

So quickly you guys turn a Hitler thread into a Trump thread. Are we still going on with that narrative? That Trump is literally Hitler? And Trump supporters are Nazis?

Don't let the headline fool you. This is a North Korea thread masked as a Hitler thread. Back to NK: CIA puppet state (probably) and (possibly) now changing!

As coincidence would have it I just watched a documentary last night on the American Nazi Party leading up to and during WW2. It wasn’t only The NY Times, but a large number of Americans who supported Hitler, went to rallies, and marched with the armbands and everything.

I think it says more about the need for group identity in Americans than it does about any particular news agency. The NY Times were far from alone at that time in their support of Hitler and Nazi Germany.

Apparently Prescott bush was involved with the Nazis.


George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany. The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.


How Bushes grandfather helped hitlers rise to power.

One of the interesting things about Hitler and how he was perceived in the USA , beyond the power struggles of the 1930s and early 40s is the manner in which schools taught about him in the next generations.
My folks fought in that war making me of the early boomer generation. The way we were taught about Hitler was akin to him almost being an isolated event. A simple singularity on the international scene. Well, him and El Doce that is. We were taught to see them as hold overs from histories past where dictators were common but that now the world had pretty much grown out of that.

There was no schooling about the economic webs that run through all of international politics. We were taught to see him and Mussolini as anomalies rather than products of battling economic systems. For this reason, as it seems that Trump has been brought into this thread, that as much as I dislike Trump and would like to see him gone, I think it will do little to cure any of the problems that the corruptions within the capitalist system, corruptions that Trump has successfully abused to his own benefit, are recognized as the foundation of our current problems.

There is a fear that down the line in the next few decades we will see an authoritarian leader in the US. We are seeing the foundations for an authoritarian culture like suppression of free speech by violence because "muh feelings".

All it takes is for someone to convince the masses by saying that he/she will provide a better solution for the current mess and that authoritarian rule is the only way to make country go better.

It will take time though but we will be there eventually.

As the saying goes, "death by a thousand paper cuts".

We had the same regulations thirty years ago as we have today. But society now abuses our privileges more. Watch TV, not nearly as much stuff that was bad for society was on TV thirty years ago. Chaos is not good for society.

When a person flips off a cop because the cop is trying to get in between traffic so he can stop someone and the person who he is after gets away because of lack of cooperation gives the guy a ticket, the person goes to court and gets the ticket dropped because of our freedom of speech during an appeal. Now I do not know why the fact that the person was interfering with law enforcement doing their job wasn't used to give the ticket.

There are laws that people need to yield to law enforcement while they are doing their job, also emergency vehicles. But lately people are not complying with the laws, stopping traffic to protest when an ambulance or police car is trying to get through. Where do you draw the line on freedom of speech and right to protest? Our society is crumbling, a lot of people think their beliefs and rights are more than other people have. For the good of the people and society as a whole has to be considered.

But education is conditioning, and lately the conditioning is not being done correctly. Yes, educating people to act properly in society and to understand that all people have equal rights and that we must consider others rights is good. The truth should be given to people, not partial truths spun our of context.

That's a nice spin on it. The "zomg the media is wrong" spin. The NYT wasn't the only entity in the USA that was praising Hitler...tons of supporters of Hitler within these shores...The Bush family, Henry Ford, IBM, General Electric, Singer...the list goes on and on.

As soon as Hitler declared war on the US most of those companies immediately stopped doing business and supporting Nazi enterprise. However, Standard Oil used shell companies and neutral country fronts to keep supporting them. That's the real story...not that "in the 1930s the NYT got it wrong."

Keep spinning though, there's enough sheep that will buy it.
