"Forward-March!" a photographic memorial of World War I
The White House Putsch was an Congressionally-investigated conspiracy of moneyed interests which tried to overthrow President Franklin D. Roosevelt during the early years of the Great Depression. The allegations of the plot came to light when Marine Corps General Smedley Butler testified to the existence of the plot before the McCormack-Dickstein Committee in 1933 [1].

In this testimony, Butler claimed that a group of several men had approached him as part of a plot to overthrow Roosevelt in a fascist military coup using the recently created American Liberty League constructed for the purpose of the coup
with the model being the 1930's French fascist Croix de Feu.

SO the American Liberty League was FASCIST?
They wanted a dictatorship like the Nazis?
What does that say about "labels" and "slogans"?

In their final report, the Congressional committee supported Butler's allegations on the existence of the plot [2], but no prosecutions or further investigations followed.
... John W. McCormack and Samuel Dickstein. It was called the Special Committee on Un-American Activities Authorized to Investigate Nazi Propaganda and Certain Other Propaganda Activities. In 1934, it held public and private hearings in six cities, questioned hundreds of witnesses and collected testimony filling 4,300 pages. Its mandate was to get “information on how foreign subversive propaganda entered the U.S. and the organizations that were spreading it.”

It did not do well in dealing with homegrown U.S. fascists, nor did it consider how Americans helped spread fascism abroad. It did investigate the fascist plot to seize the White House, but was criticized by John Spivak, Smedley Butler and others, for not revealing – let alone questioning – the powerful men behind the plot.

General Smedley D. Butler testified under oath before the McCormack-Dickstein Committee, the first of the Un-American Committees, that he had been offered the leadership of a Fascist coup d'etat in America not once but forty-two times.
Of these the only important one was that backed by leaders of the American Liberty League, Wall Street bankers and brokers, and the ruling clique of the American Legion.

The Plot to Overthrow FDR (Smedley D. Butler)  Video Cassette  BUY
In 1932, while many Americans felt it was the way out of the Depression, a powerful group of financiers and industrialists saw the New Deal as a threat. THE PLOT TO OVERTHROW FDR reveals this group's plan to either overthrow the newly-elected president or force their agenda on him. They intended to use a paramilitary organization of disgruntled WWI veterans inspired by Marine General Smedley D. Butler to coerce the government. But Butler, discovering the details of the conspiracy, blew the whistle, triggering a Congressional investigation. Leading scholars, historians and government officials reveal the details of one of the most bizarre schemes in American history.
America refused to listen to the few newspaper correspondents and the still fewer experts, such as Professor Robert Brady ("The Spirit and Structure of German Fascism"), who before the Second World War tried to warn the nation that reaction and Fascism were the real dangers because there was money in them, and because there was big money back of them.
Prescott Bush, the Remingtons, du Pont and J.P. Morgan, fomented a Plan for the Old American Century, which included assassinating FDR, creating concentration/slave labor camps, and installing a Nazi government after the Hitler model - a New World Order! Hitler's words for this Nazi bliss were simply, the "New Order." Hitler's partners and financiers in war crimes, the Bush crime family, added to Hitler's words the neo-Nazi/neoconservative term: "World."

"Occupied America" website chronology: "1934 - Coup d'etat attempt (?) by JP Morgan, du Ponts, GM people, American Legion reps., turned to Smedley Butler, former Marine Commandant who allegedly turned over information to Roosevelt. [He] was forced to resign as Commandant after he called Mussolini a Dictator." And later: "McCormack-Dickstein hearings into coup attempt confirmed it, but the report was not immediately released."
[Think Warren Commission, 9-11 Commission, Commission investigating Pearl Harbor, Abu Ghraib Army investigation, etc., etc., etc.]

notes: "[The] United States Chamber of Commerce issues report 'Combating Subversive Activities in the United States,' [think USA PATRIOT Act] that blueprinted a legislative and intelligence program against the political left that would last through the 1950's, maybe beyond. [The] report demanded passage of anti-subversive legislation, including a sedition law and demanded an agency within the Justice Dept. be created to deal with subversive activities. A supervisor from the 'Nazi Labor Front' rides with every shipment of the Harriman-Bush line. Hamburg-Amerika [Bush] provides free passage to those going to Germany for propaganda purposes [bringing demo-crazy to the volk]. The Line also subsidizes pro-Nazi newspapers [The New York Times?].
Butler saves Amerika from Nazi fascism and even possibly saves FDR's life, and the great Fraudulent Despotic Ruler fires him for calling Mussolini exactly what he was: "a fascist!"  (true?)

Look at all these American Supporters of European Fascism
prominent and wealthy American businessmen helped to support fascist regimes in Europe from the 1920s through the 1940s.  These people helped to support Francisco Franco during the Spanish Civil War of 1936, as well as Benito Mussolini, and Adolph Hitler.
famous Americans and companies that were involved with the fascist regimes of Europe are: William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy (JFK's father), Charles Lindbergh, John Rockefeller, Andrew Mellon (head of Alcoa, banker, and Secretary of Treasury), DuPont, General Motors, Standard Oil (now Exxon), Ford, ITT, Allen Dulles (later head of the CIA), Prescott Bush, National City Bank, and General Electric.  (And of course Thomas Watson of IBM.)

Standard Oil, DuPont, Alcoa, and Dow Chemical were crucial in supplying the Nazi regime with the materials needed for war.

Fascist organizing in 1933 was apparently (no, obviously) a reaction to labor unrest and labor demands (hence the term "reactionary") and to libertarianism in general (which used to be called "liberalism" and was pro-business but also pro-labor and pro-freedom ... LIBERTY), emerging over the previous decades during the Rise of the Industrial Age and the desire for lots of cheap labor.  The Industrial Workers of the World was the first big union effort in which workers fought for rights above slavery and for a decent standard of living.

(AFL, CIO and other labor groups became controlled adjuncts of govt via the corporate-compliant and corporate-run NLRB -- yes, corporate mgmt controlled the top level of the "tamed" labor movement -- most would consider such an arrangement to be a conflict of interest).

"The IWW, whose members were and are known commonly as Wobblies, advocated such radical ideas as an eight hour work day and a forty hour work week, fought and sometimes won bitter freedom of speech fights, ..."

The industry owners naturally fought back, individually and collectively, using the brute force of hired thugs and brute force of the police, state militia, and Feds, as well as legal maneuvers.  In most cases the political power sided with the money, not the workers.  In at least one case, Matewan, the sheriff Sid Hatfield who sided with miners was later killed by Baldwin-Phelps "detectives" hired by the feudalistic coal company to force miners to work for scrip.  It is more than interesting that the Pinkerton detective firm BECAME the FBI, and a retired FBI agent later formed Wackenhut.  Both were labor-busting detective agencies, and the FBI was just an extension of that, with law enforcement powers of the government.  Of course, they didn't enforce the Constitution, they violated it.

Pro-Corporate Business propaganda costing billions of dollars tried to equate labor movements with anti-Americanism and later totalitarian Communism, in the public mind.  Hear Alex Carey's talk at the bottom.

Note: At that time, labor was not a domesticated animal controlled by the National Labor Relations Board appointed by the President.  It was independent, run by workers not by management.  That made it "dangerous and seditious".  I'm sure there emerged some IWW members who DID push for an outright Marxist government, but I think in the beginning it was mostly for Constitutional protection for workers against criminal violence by hired thugs and govt agents.

This was of course a global struggle, not just American, and it's what the Hitler Project and the Mussolini Project and Franco, etc. were created to fight against.

IWW fought to organize workers into worldwide labor solidarity.  Naturally the aristocrats in Europe and the capitalist/aristocrats in America fought in the opposite direction, to splinter and/or neutralize radical labor and human rights groups, to deny freedom, and to organize the whole world in their interests.  These globalists (global capitalists) count NAFTA as a watershed moment, as this and other new trade laws undermine and virtually eliminate popular governance.

Some old school conservatives say the march to centralized "socialistic" control goes back to 1913, the unconstitutional creation of the centralized cartel of private banks called the Federal Reserve System, and 1916 the creation of the Federal Income Tax, sold as a way to get even with the rich robber barons, but actually designed to tilt the playing field towards the richest robber barons.  The anti-communist Palmer Raids rounded up tens of thousands of American citizens for having political views the govt didn't like.  Conservatives who opposed Woodrow Wilson's war were charged under the Sedition Act.  That's quite totalitarian too.   But the fascism angle is not just despotism, it is for the systemic militarization of civilian society.

I'm open to comments and criticism on this viewpoint, but I think it works in a nutshell, and there's much evidence and context to back it up.

Alex Carey

The Attack on Democracy
Alex Carey said that the people of the US have been subjected to an unparalleled, expensive, 3/4 century long propaganda effort designed to expand corporate rights by undermining democracy and destroying the unions. The 20th century, he wrote, is marked by three historic developments: the growth of democracy via the expansion of the franchise, the growth of corporations, and the growth of propaganda to protect corporations from democracy. Carey’s unique view of US history goes back to World War I and ends with the Reagan era.

Noam Chomsky dedicated his book “Manufacturing Consent” to the memory of Alex Carey. Chomsky says that the Australian sociologist would have written the definitive history of propaganda in the US, had he lived to complete his work. This is a fairly complex production with many voices, historic sound clips, and source material. The program has been used by writers and students of history and propaganda.

Under Cover -- Four Years in the Nazi Underworld of America. (1943)

by John Roy Carlson  (provided by Dave Emory)
Part I  Part II (PDF file)  Book Description by Dave Emory

I disagree with some of Emory's conclusions about the GWOT, but the raw facts he provides are tremendous, see audio below.  In particular, he says we're fighting a REAL war on terror being subverted by a "Fifth-column" of pro-fascist, pro-terrorist individuals and groups within the govt, and very close to the GOP.  He compares this to FDR sending troops to fight Nazis while Wall Street and pre-CIA supported Nazis.  In that way, he compares Bush to FDR, as patriotic, pro-democracy fighters. 

FDR was believably anti-Fascist.  Fascists (below) totally despised FDR as a communist, as they believed democracy = communism.   On the other hand, Bush IS a member of the fascist network, Emory admits that, and the rise of fascism in the US and abroad serves the goals of the Bush regime.  I see no logical reason to assume that the Govt's War on Terror (Islamo-Fascism) is anything but a ruse to roll out more domestic fascism, as they have desired to do for decades.

We got to clean up this Goddam Democracy.
(They wanted to destroy the Democratic and Republican parties, NOT because they were too Corporate Fascist, but because they were too democratic.)

Buy Christian
Stop Persecuting Christians
Wake Up Christians.  Look around you.  See what's happening to America.
"I am not content to walk in the footsteps of Christ. I will walk ahead of him with a club."
today:  with a nuke

some quotes:
This country is overrun with Foreigners, Niggers, Jews. 
Is this the White America of our Fathers?
Is this the land of Christian patriots of blood-sucking Communists.
This country has been stolen from us Christians by a bunch of conniving rats.
Join the NRA.

What are we going to do about it?  We'll go to work on the Jews.
Kill the Jews, hang them from lamp-posts.  There won't be enough lamp-posts.
(For a good fascist, it doesn't matter WHO the "enemy" is:  Mexican illegal immigrants, Jews, Polacks,  or even Arabs (who were once more accepted as "enemies of the Jews" instead of "sand-niggers").  Just so there's a target for hate, and so it's not the very top elites who DO control all society's resources and are not confined to a race or religion.)

There's foreigners everywhere.
My son can't get a job, but the damn foreigners get jobs.
Let's wipe every atheistic Communist off the face of the earth.
Let's show em real Christian power.

Hate!  Did you hear what I said?  We must learn to Hate!!
To join the 100% Christian-American-Patriotic  movement you didn't have to be Christian or American.  Heathens and Mohammedans welcome.

Japanese, crooks, thugs, racketeers.
Just one requirement:  Hate Niggers, Jews, Polacks, Catholics, Communists, bankers, Labor Unions.

Hitler and Mussolini are men of peace.
(formed anti-war movement to DEFEND Nazi Germany)

Father Coughlin published Social Justice -- anti-semitic rag, but not as extreme as American Nationalist.  Some branches lured well-dressed respectable people with same messages.

more quotes:
Democracy.  They throw it in your faces.
You hear it on all sides till you get sick of it.
What is this Democracy?  It is a rotten form of weakness, a defeatist, and pacifist attitude that can only mean defeat.
I say the hell with Democracy and up with the banner of American power.

We can chuck our democracy and turn Nationalist (synonymous with Fascism).  (from a "pro-American" viewpoint!!!!)
Red white and blue Swastika flag.

You got to create terror to get somewhere.  You got to terrorize the Jews.
I got a list of big shot Jews and your Tolerant Christians. Wait til the time comes to use it.
... brass knuckles and lead pipes.

Fear of Red Revolution:
1) established presence of a hypothetical enemy
2) frightened and then spurred the religious to ACTION
3) enlisted family man to protect "loved ones"
4) established need for action for self-defense
5) secret revolutionary cells
6) caching arms and ammunition
7) declared the need for a Holy War

Christianity is nothing but Jewish propaganda.  My religion is National Socialism.  Christianity is bunk.

They would pass out flyers on the streets, yell at people who looked Jewish, and gangs would wait in alleys to beat up critics.

Have things changed that much?
In the early 40's, America had Father Coughlin on radio and ragged bands of pamphleteers, and other forces.  Now, "respectable fascists" like O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, Limbaugh, etc. appear on CNN and Fox, have their own popular TV shows from which to agitate.
Pro-fascism and destroying democracy has gone mainstream.
