The US always supported fascism. Look at WWII, GM,IBM, Ford Motor Company (and many other businesses and banks) all supported Hitler and the rearmament of its military. Even Prescott Bush, the uncle of George Bush, and father, and grandfather, was very much instrumental in working with Brown Brothers Harriman.

Fast forward eighty years give or take and the US is supporting and training the Azov militia in Ukraine. WTF and we complain about Trump and the supposed “alt right”?

We supported the rearmament of Hitler because the US thought Hitler could take-out communism [read:the Soviets. Read: Russia]. Today we support the Azov militia [read: fascists] because they may be able to take out Putin and again, Russia.
