Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 – April 7, 1947) was an American industrialist, manufacturing innovator, and business magnate. The founder of the Ford Motor Company is lionized for his role as chief developer of the assembly line technique of mass production, which built affordable automobiles for the masses. However, there was a dark side to Ford, one that has often been overlooked or downplayed. Henry Ford was a virulent antisemite who single handedly introduced and disseminated the fake Protocols of the Elders of Zion to the American people.
Quote: “In 1918, Henry Ford purchased his hometown newspaper, The Dearborn Independent. A year and a half later, he began publishing a series of articles that claimed a vast Jewish conspiracy was infecting America.” | “A close friend recalled a camping trip in 1919 during which Ford lectured a group around the campfire. He ‘attributes all evil to Jews or to the Jewish capitalists,’ the friend wrote in his diary. ‘The Jews caused [World War I], the Jews caused the outbreak of thieving and robbery all over the country, the Jews caused the inefficiency of the navy…’ ”
