I knew there was a reason I didn't like Fords.

Two interesting things this reminded me about.

1 There is some pretty good circumstantial evidence Ford was a contributor to the Nazi party

2 The other American to receive that award was Charles Lindbergh

Charles Lindbergh and Adolf Hitler were both named Times magazine men of the year. I knew that Henry Ford had ties the Nazi regime because of a term paper I had to write. There are several influential people throughtout history that had similar backgrounds.

Henry Ford died in 1947. My father wasn't even born until 1948. My patronage of the Ford Motor Company has no bearing on his legacy, and vice versa. In modern times, the FMC is the only "domestic" vehicle manufacturer not to accept Obamabucks, and my truck was manufactured in Kansas City, MO. These two things are much higher on my list of concerns than how dead guys patted each other on the backs before the world was at war.

It is well known Henry Ford was an anti-semite. I believe he even published an anti sematic news paper for a while. I remember the first time Schindlers List was played on TV and "Brought to you by Ford with no commercial interuptions". My thought at the time was he was turning over in his grave.
