In California, folk songs that were originally German were removed from children's songbooks. In schools across the nation, teaching the German language came to an end. Libraries across the nation removed from their shelves books by German authors. Under pressure from the public and a crusade led by former president Roosevelt the editors of German language newspapers shut their papers down. A few German-Americans were forced to kiss the American flag. Some of them were forced to parade before irate townspeople as objects of ridicule. A German-American was lynched in southern Illinois. Kids threw stones at Dachshunds. And teachers lost their jobs for expressing their opinions on the issue of war and peace.

I saw a movie, I believe by Adam Curtis, that made a strong case that Wilson was always, secretly, pro-war, and used public relations to sway the citizens.

now that we know shitsrael is the world's enemy can we take back our currency and call it liberty dollars, or pharmaceuticals and toss that industry in the toilet, or guillotine the heads of politicians who have a clear relationship with shitsrael, amongst others?!...
