History. Politics. Nonfiction. HTML:Rachel Maddow traces the fight to preserve American democracy back to World War II, when a handful of committed public servants and brave private citizens thwarted far-right plotters trying to steer our nation toward an alliance with the Nazis.
/>  
Inspired by her research for the hit podcast Ultra, Rachel Maddow charts the rise of a wild American strain of authoritarianism that has been alive on the far-right edge of our politics for the better part of a century. Before and even after our troops had begun fighting abroad in World War II, a clandestine network flooded the country with disinformation aimed at sapping the strength of the U.S. war effort and persuading Americans that our natural alliance was with the Axis, not against it. It was a sophisticated and shockingly well-funded campaign to undermine democratic institutions, promote antisemitism, and destroy citizens confidence in their elected leaders, with the ultimate goal of overthrowing the U.S. government and installing authoritarian rule.
 
That effort workedtongue and groovealongside an ultra-right paramilitary movement that stockpiled bombs and weapons and trained for mass murder and violent insurrection.
 
At the same time, a handful of extraordinary activists and journalists were tracking the scheme, exposing it even as it was unfolding. In 1941 the U.S. Department of Justice finally made a frontal attack, identifying the key plotters, finding their backers, and prosecuting dozens in federal court.
 
None of it went as planned.
 
While the scheme has been remembered in historyif at allas the work of fringe players, in reality it involved a large number of some of the countrys most influential elected officials. Their interference in law enforcement efforts against the plot is a dark story of the rule of law bending and then breaking under the weight of political intimidation.
 
That failure of the legal system had consequences. The tentacles of that unslain beast have reached forward into our history for decades. But the heroic efforts of the activists, journalists, prosecutors, and regular citizens who sought to expose the insurrectionists also make for a deeply resonant, deeply relevant tale in our own disquieting times.… (lisätietoja)

(2023) Kirkus: America beat fascism once. Maddow?s timely study of enemies on the homefront urges that we can do so again.

Ahistory of America?s admirers and enablers of the Third Reich, from fellow travelers in Congress to Nazi spies and other enemies of democracy.

Politicians espousing civil war. Radio hosts howling about the liberal domination of culture. Militias training to hunt down Jews, leftists, and Democrats. If it all sounds like a run-up to Jan. 6, 2021, there?s a reason. As MSNBC host Maddow demonstrates in this sharp-edged history, the fascist strain in America runs deep. The author opens her contextually rich narrative with George Sylvester Viereck, whose 1907 novel, The House of the Vampire, ?is seen today by precisely no one as the world?s greatest gay vampire fiction,? though it certainly was a pioneer of the genre. The German-born Viereck was also a Nazi agent who dispensed money to pro-Hitler publications, many of whose talking points found their way into the mouths of politicians on Capitol Hill. Fascists pinned great hopes on Huey Long, who ?ran Louisiana like a mob boss,? but who was assassinated before he could exercise national power. Calvin Coolidge was a milquetoast president; however, as Maddow shows, within his administration were strong anti-immigration advocates, some of whose policies were adopted by the Nazis in Germany. Well-known supporters of fascism included Father Charles Coughlin, who mixed anti?New Deal fervor with antisemitism. ?We want strong men,? said one militant acolyte. ?Men to fight for America?s destiny and link it with the destiny of Adolf Hitler, the greatest philosopher since the time of Christ.? Frightening current-day parallels aside, a web of patriots rose to battle the fascists, taking down the most prominent pro-Nazis, even if many of their elected officials lived on to battle civil rights and other progressive causes.

Maddow writes about the 1930s and early 1940s when isolationism strongly influenced public opinion. In fact, many people in US society thought that maybe the fascists weren't such a bad thing, especially compared to the Communists and the Jews. Antisemitism was rampant, not just in Germany, but in the U.S., too. Some of this was covered in Maddow's podcast, but she goes into more detail here. ( )

I thought this might be difficult to read but instead, in her usual totally organized way, Maddow works her way through this complicated story of what has been going on in this country for a very long time, even as it continues right through today. Incredible people who have almost been lost in history have tried to put at least a control over what has been happening with the steady rise of fascism world-wide but so frighteningly, in this country. There are so many people who have been involved in one way or another, from powerful political people to people within the justice system, to plain ol' citizens pulled in. What makes people believe what they hear? Why are facts so hard to get through to people instead of the voices full of lies and misinformation? This long story that continues today is just remarkably presented by Maddow. It needs to be read because it is exactly what the title says it is for the country we live in now. How can we work through the present without a much better understanding of our past? ( )

I ended up having to put this to the side a few times for other books and it is such a good book that would have benefited from a big read in one sitting. The research is very deep, about the fascist elements in the US leading to WWII and the connections to Nazi Germany. It's a time period I am interested in and I knew nothing about these people in general. Rachel Maddow is so good at putting the stories in context and also making them so very relevant to current events. A great read.
