The Bush-Nazi Connection

leave a comment »

The Guardian has an excellent report on Prescott Bush (G.W’s grandfather) and his dealings with Nazi Germany. These facts have been known for some time, but have seen very little mainstream attention. Certainly nothing like this has graced the pages of the New York Times. Put shortly, Prescott Bush was an amoral war profiteer who had no qualms making money off of genocide. You say I exaggerate? Read the article:

George Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

The new documents, many of which were only declassified last year, show that even after America had entered the war and when there was already significant information about the Nazis’ plans and policies, he worked for and profited from companies closely involved with the very German businesses that financed Hitler’s rise to power. It has also been suggested that the money he made from these dealings helped to establish the Bush family fortune and set up its political dynasty.
