Italy 1922, U.S. 2017

Interesting post on Facebook:

Interesting piece on U.S. press reaction to Fascist takeover in Italy. Provides a perspective on how truly far we are now from Fascism in the U.S. More so than in 1922 when repression of labor and socialist organization was at it's height and racism was the law of the land in the form of Jim Crow laws.


Fort Worth Star-Telegram, 30 October 1922
“Fascisti Leader Backed by 1,000,000 Armed Men is Now Unchallenged Ruler of Italy”
