1934 U.S. corporate elitists calling Roosevelt a traitor to his class for having implemented his New Deal policies, tried to involve Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler in a treasonous plan to foment an armed coup against Roosevelt. Instead, Butler turned on the Banana Republic Capitalist’s, stating that he was fed up sending men abroad to get slaughtered defending Standard Oil interests, and that he’d had enough of what he called, “being a gangster for capitalism.”
The Fascist Plot to Overthrow FDR
In 1933, Retired Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler was approached by wealthy industrialists and bankers who were plotting to create a fascist veterans’ organization called the “American Liberty League” and use it in a coup d’état to overthrow United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt, with Butler as leader of that organization.
Marine Corps Maj.-Gen. Smedley Butler was approached by a wealthy and secretive group of industrialists and bankers, including Prescott Bush, who asked him to command a 500,000 strong rogue army of veterans that would help stage a coup to topple then President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
The proven record of Prescott Bush’s involvement in financing the Nazi war machine dovetails with the fact that he was part of a criminal cabal that actively sought to impose a fascist coup in America.
President George Walker Bush’s grandfather (Prescott Bush) and great grandfather (George Herbert Walker) were among Wall Street’s ultra-right wing elite.
