This Video from The 1940s Has Never Been More Relevant

More than 70 years later, a video from the 1940s is having it’s round as a viral video on the internet.

In the wake of the violent white supremacist ‘Unite the Right’ rally in Charlottesville this weekend, Americans were forced to accept the sobering realization that a neo-Nazi movement has been brewing for some time.

In response, one Twitter user named Michael Oman-Reagan tweeted a video from 1947, originally produced by the U.S. War Department (later the Department of Defense) that is eeriely relevant to today’s issue.

Originally a 17-minute film, “Don’t Be Sucker” was shown in theatres post-WWII to deconstruct the Nazi’s social engineering of Germany at the time, an ideology that wasn’t far off from the facist sympathizers in the States at the time.
