Henry Ford's "Anti-Semitic" Publications On Jews

Professor Jonathan Sarna talked about how industrialist Henry Ford founded and supported a newspaper that published anti-semitic articles. This class was from his course called “It Couldn't Happen Here: Three American Antisemitic Episodes.” Henry Ford’s international weekly, The Dearborn Independent, published an article in 1920 describing the “International Jew” as the world’s foremost problem. Sarna describes Ford as having conservative social and political views and disliking Jews because their progressive beliefs.

Essential to the understanding of popular attitudes in today's rustbelt, and also revealing about how conservatives have been diverted into self-defeating and delusional ideologies going back a century

Can conservatism ever be reconciled to modernism?
