I don't know anything about Tucker's grandfather, but if you want a complete understanding of just what a worthless piece of shiat his father was and how big of an influence he had on the Tucker Carlson we know today, watch the HBO mini-series "The Lady and the Dale."

It's a very poorly written and poorly executed mini-series, so don't expect to really enjoy it. But it will teach you a lot about the actual history of Tucker Carlson's brand of awfulness.

I love to listen to old radio shows--30's through the early 70's'--and there are a surprising number of "don't be a racist/bigidiot PSAs right around the close WWII and for a few years after.

I wonder when Uncle Sam decided that the problem was fixed and they stopped running them?

My guess is during the Nixon Era and his "southern strategy".

Yes, we know.

Now maybe you should Google some shiat about how terribly black soldiers were treated during and after WWII, after fighting for freedom from the awful, racist Nazis.

Racism in America is not a recent phenomenon. It wasn't invented by Fox "News." It's just been a really great business model for them, apparently.

I guarantee you that if TV was a thing during WWII, there'd have been plenty of folksy racism on display. We didn't mind liberating Europe from the evil racist regime. The U.S., not so much. Took another 20 years or so. And even then, it obviously didn't get rid of all of them. They didn't just spring up from nowhere.

Almost every old man in the racist small town I grew up in said something similar to that.
 
2021-12-06 6:32:30 PM  
Paul Lukas was a staunch adversary against fascism and the Nazis. He portrayed both sides in movies of the era to show again and again why the world should be very afraid.

Watch Confessions of a Nazi Spy, where he plays a Nazi and his acting is superb in getting across their fanaticism. Watch The Watch on the Rhine where he portrays a German underground participant. And most of all watch Address Unknown as he starts out as a German living in America with his family and Jewish business partner, returns to Germany for the business and gets swept up in Nazi fascism. There is more to it but I wouldn't want to spoil how it turns out.

All excellent portrayals of Nazi fascism and why America should be very afraid (at the time), and all very relevant to the RWNJs and organizations attempting to bring it again.

Probably around 1950, you know, when there was a war to fight not against fascists.

"Despite its principles of tolerance, Freemasonry in the United States has historically been divided between so-called mainstream Masons and traditionally black Prince Hall Masons. The mainstream Masons did not recognize the Prince Hall group until about 1990, when a thaw began in Connecticut and spread to all but 10 states [...]"

The Masons may wish to be so enlightened like that, but when I first replied with "allegedly" it was because I know (present and in the past) a few racists that were also Masons. It's why I never asked to be one of those guys. Anyway... I am saying that a lot of organizations have a certain veneer, and want to be seen in a certain light, but deep inside they are as rotten as a barrel full of old bananas.

Those messages were mostly about not being bigoted towards the Irish, Polish, and some Italians.
Took a while to build up to telling people not to be bigoted towards the "darker than the Lawrence Welk audience" groups.

Without missing a beat they would pick up on the war department part and go, "see? Now they admit they are at war with us real Americans!"

While completely and utterly ignoring the real point that makes about themselves.

Hell, I see that regularly in movies from the start of motion pictures until the 50s when "under God" was added.

My hometown, the Baptist church there is where the phrase "In God We Trust" began and petitioned to be put on US currency. We also had a signer of the Declaration of Independence.

That's the southern grand lodges, for the most part.  The same ones that also ban gay men.  The rest of Freemasonry in the United States is open to all men regardless of race or ethnicity.

/ forget the  abouth the argument of the descendents of slavery. Push the idea of the descendents of the "Greatest Generation" for White supremancy  against African-Americans. Red-lining, Jim Crow laws, etc. If one  wants to push towards  a lot of jackasses kneel in real hard to crash the idea  that fake ideal of 50's culture.

The US government made this anti-fascism film

Otherwise known as propaganda. The government knew then (and knows now) that the US's greatest weakness is our everyone-for-themselves racial salad, which is really bad during wartime but a great way to keep the lower classes in check during peacetime.
