While Mr. Hicks' posts no longer come through on my version of APUG, I cannot escape his quotations when used by others. Although Henry Ford's anti-semitic views were well known through the publication of his "newspaper", The Dearborn Independent and he was in fact mentioned in "Mein Kampf", I would think he might want to check his facts about much of this "book" being "lifted" from Henry Ford's writings. I can find no information that addresses this. Even us pseudo intellectuals need to keep our facts straight.

Also, in the interest of historical correctness, Henry Ford was awarded and did accept the "Grand Cross of the German Eagle" here in Dearborn in 1938. Ford later renounced his anti-semitic beliefs under business pressures and the threat of boycott although it is widely believed this was less than sincere.
