I’m reading about Charles Lindbergh’s WWII-era efforts to keep the US from fighting against Nazism, and wow, he’s Tucker Carlson. The same enormous popularity and charisma frittered away on defending an obvious evil. The same pouty incapacity to condemn a terrible regime. The same verbal acrobatics to pretend there’s a moral equivalency between
Great Britain and Nazi Germany Ukraine and Russia.
Lindbergh, by the way, was a vicious anti-Semite, which I didn’t know. And so was Henry Ford, which I didn’t know either.
