Hypersensitive, paranoid Jews target Henry Ford Museum
DEARBORN, Mich. (Feb. 13) - Mitt Romney officially entered the 2008 presidential race Tuesday, a former one-term Republican governor of Massachusetts suggesting that his record of leadership inside and outside government uniquely positions him to tackle the country's challenges.
. . . . Romney's choice of a museum honoring auto pioneer Henry Ford as the site of his presidential announcement was strongly criticized Monday by Jewish Democrats, who noted Ford's history of anti-Semitism.
The former Massachusetts governor was taken to task by The National Jewish Democratic Council.
The council "is deeply troubled by Governor Romney's choice of locations to announce his presidential campaign," executive director Ira Forman said in a statement . . .
. . . Forman said Romney's "embrace of Henry Ford and association of Ford's legacy with his presidential campaign raises serious questions about either the sincerity of Romney's words or his understanding of basic American history."
Ford was bestowed with the Grand Service Cross of the Supreme Order of the German Eagle by Adolph Hitler
Eric Fehrnstrom, a spokesman for Romney, said the candidate will go ahead with his announcement as planned.
"Governor Romney believes our country needs to put innovation at the forefront if we are to ensure a stronger, safer and more prosperous America," Fehrnstrom said. "The Ford Museum embodies that bold, innovative spirit."
For starters, the museum is named for Henry Ford but is not specifically dedicated to "honoring" him.
Though Henry Ford was anti-Semitic, another big reason why Hitler admired Ford was that Hitler saw the Ford Model T as the forerunner of Hitler's Volkswagen, the "people's car."
Possibly an additional reason for Mitt Romney's choice of the museum for his announcement is his ties to Michigan and the auto industry. His father George Romney was a governor of Michigan and an executive in the auto industry.
I visited the Henry Ford Museum and saw nothing anti-Semitic there.
What is next? A boycott of Ford vehicles?
Also, Charles Lindbergh, despite his Jewish-sounding name, was accused of being an anti-Semite. So should the Spirit of St. Louis be removed from the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institution?
