Thank god, I really wonder where we’d be today if some of our current members of Congress were residing during World War II. I think we’d all be speaking German right now and the world would have a serious shortage of jews.
Curious they should say that, since the President who led us thru that very necessary war was FDR, one of our greatest, and the anti-war America First Committee – Gerald Ford was a member, BTW – had a definite vein of anti-Semitism running thru it.. And since George Bush’s grandpappy Prescott (Columbus native and a man who did business with Nazi Germany in the 30’s) was allegedly part of a coup led by business leaders to overthrow FDR in 1933 and institute a Fascist regime.
Anyway, isolationism as a guide for foreign policy is a complicated, cross-party issue. 1930s isolationism was definitely a diverse tent. But the anti-Iraq War sentiment voiced by the vast majority of Americans definitely is not one based in isolationism.
