I’m sorry…. but this is all crazy talk. Pure unadulterated crazy talk. I’m a nice liberal Democrat who would love nothing more than to pin an actual Nazi label on the Bush Family, but lets be honest…. they weren’t connected to the Nazis. No more than FDR or Eisenhower. And I think we can safely save neither FDR or Ike were Nazis.

Prescott Bush doesn’t even fall into that odd category of people who disliked the Nazi methods, but none the less thought the Nazis were making positive changes in Germany in the 1930s. Charles Lindbergh being the most famous of people who thought that way. A little more extreme, but still not anywhere near being an actual Nazi, was Henry Ford.

First, the corporation that was seized for the duration of WW2 was Union Banking Corporation. It was cleared of wrong doing at the end of the war by none other than the Democrats in power the FDR and Truman Administrations. It did have some German holdings for a corporation own by Fritz Thyssen, who was connected to the Nazis in Germany…. but they were not Nazi-assets. Basically, any business leader in Germany had at least some contact with the Nazi German Government in the 1930s and 1940s.

Also, another person who was on the board of Union Banking with Prescott Bush was Averell Harriman. The same Averell Harriman who was then Ambassador to the Soviet Union. The same guy who was a prominent member FDR’s foreign policy team handling WW2. Later he was Governor of New York. He was one of the major Democratic Leaders in late 1940s and 1950s. He tried to run for President in the 1950s, but could never really get the idea very popular with anyone outside of NY much.

So, if Prescott Bush was working for the Nazis then so was Harriman and, since they had to know it too…. so was FDR, Churchill, Stalin, Truman, Eisenhower, etc.

Also, let us bear in mind that Eisenhower sent Major General Henry Jervis Friese Miller home from England before D-Day because the guy got drunk and talked too much in a restaurant about the plans for D-Day. Miller was also demoted back to Colonel. This was a guy who was a personal friend of his for decades. And it was something that could have been hushed up and overlooked if they had wanted. No damage was actually done. So, Ike was not the forgiving kind of guy who overlooked shit.

Yet, who was one of Eisenhower’s point people in the Senate in the 1950’s to work against Joe McCarthy? Prescott Bush. Now, I don’t like how Ike did backroom political maneuvering against McCarthy.

I think it would have been better if he had directly taken the floor against Tailgunner Joe, but he didn’t. He used backroom petty politics to force McCarthy into a corner and, in the end, it worked. I think Eisenhower just making a speech where he said “Joe McCarthy is an idiot and nobody should listen to him” would have been a nice direct route that would have worked, but at the same time I understand his reasoning for not doing that. The reasoning was this: what if it fails? If Eisenhower made that speech and it doesn’t work, McCarthy would have emerged in an even stronger political position. And I can at least understand why Eisenhower would have wanted to avoid that.

So, he took that indirect route to chip little by little at McCarthy and eventually helped McCarthy hang himself politically.

Prescott Bush worked closely with the Eisenhower administration and helped get McCarthy censured by the Senate.

I don’t think Eisenhower would have worked with Prescott Bush if he knew him to be really sympathetic to the Nazis. It just wouldn’t have happened.

I’m sorry, but I would love nothing more than for it to be true. As I said, I am very much not a supporter of the Bush family politics. But it’s just not true. In my view, there is more than enough wrong with the Bush family politics without the need to believe total bullshit.
