This is an educational video put out by the United States Army in 1947. You can always spot a fascist. He’s the man who attempts to “divide and conquer” a people against itself. The message seems very relevant today.
Is this a short film or is this a feature length film? This is awesome.
It’s a short educational film put out by the United States Army.
Don’t Be a Sucker! is an anti-racist propaganda film produced by the US War Department in 1947. An American who has been listening to a racist rabble-rouser is warned off by a naturalized Hungarian immigrant, who explains to him how racist demagogy allowed the Nazis to rise to power in Germany, and warns Americans not to fall for similar demagogy propagated by American racists.The film was made to make the case for the desegregation of the United States armed forces.
It’s sad that in year 2015, it’s still applicable.
The best line:
“They gambled with other peoples’ liberty, and of course they lost their own.”
Those are the stakes.
Yes, that’s brilliant. So true. Down with Trump.
