Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Minorities banding together to fight fascist right ... what has happened in the American 21st Century? A long recovery of the Republican rightwing extremism after McCarthyism and Barry Goldwater ... and Hillary Rodham was a supporter? Just as the Kennedy's were. Fighting Communism with FBI's J.

When Jewish WWII vets pulverized postwar UK fascists to tamp down rising racism | Times of Israel |

Six months after the end of World War II, Britain's fascist leader, Sir Oswald Mosley, attended a Christmas party. He was given a rapturous reception by 1,000 stalwart supporters -- complete with raised-arm salutes. Despite the defeat of the Third Reich which he had so admired, Mosley remained convinced that Britain's fascist moment was still to come.

But the former head of the British Union of Fascists would also face a group of equally committed opponents -- mainly Jewish ex-servicemen -who fought, spied upon and, ultimately, helped to defeat Mosley's much hoped-for return to the political stage.

As Daniel Sonabend brilliantly captures in his new book, "We Fight Fascists: The 43 Group and Their Forgotten Battle for Post-war Britain," this was a tale of often bloody, and occasionally terrifying "organized chaos."
