  •  Add to the list Prescott Bush, W.'s grandaddy, (8+ / 0-)

    who was also busted by the DOJ under the Trading With the Enemy Act for helping to finance the Third Reich.  
    "Busted" isn't the right word.  Brown Bros Harriman (Bush's financial and shipping Co) got a slap on the wrist.

    Here's the best rundown of how pervasively eugenics its confluence with Fascism saturated US business, finance, government and culture, all the way into the 1980s (see a reference in the piece to G.W. Bush's continued dalliance with eugenics even that late in the game).

    •  Reading that article was horrifying. Took a bit. (0+ / 0-)

      It describes the 20th Century's equivalent of smallpox blankets to Native Americans. Genocide. Pre-genocide by sterilization. Anyone not white or rich. Everywhere.
      2,000,000 sterilizations done worldwide, by rich white USian eugenics-believing people with the sole aim of preventing non-whites from procreating. They didn't care that kids 8-10, after "testing," were sterilized. They didn't care that they did business with Nazi Germany through WWII.
      Hitler got ethnic cleansing ideas from our rich family sons of the Gilded Age, with their obsession with race purity and dubious ideas about selective breeding to make better and more of ... them, of course.
      I knew about the sterilization assault in Puerto Rico, so common it's called merely la operación. See youtube.
      Jesus fucking god, I am so ashamed to be a part of the population that doesn't go out and start (^*$&#! rich fucks like the hellish fucking Bushes and those shitbag Kock Bros. They all play checkers with the population at large by dint of their dough. How dare they?
      And Planned Parenthood is far, far removed from this nasty business.
