Video: Old newsreel warning Americans of the danger of hate and targeting sections of the population

From the US War Department (1947) via YouTube

An interesting old newsreel from the US War Department during World War Two. It provides a chilly reminder of what is going on today in many countries, including Australia. A very important point is made. There are those who would divide us in order along lines of race and faith, in order to control this. Along with it comes the notion of superiority, for some. We should question the spreading of hate through assertions that refugees and Muslims are wrecking our civilisation and the doctrine of alternative facts. These ideas are not new and if we don’t learn from the past, we may well repeat it.
