A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on consequences, country, danger, government, history, influence, judaism, lies, majorities, peace, people, strength, survival, tolerance, virtue, and war

Instead of agitating for war, the Jewish groups in this country should be opposing it in every possible way, for they will be among the first to feel its consequences. Tolerance is a virtue that depends upon peace and strength. History shows that it cannot survive war and devastation. A few very far-sighted Jewish people realize this and stand opposed to intervention. But the majority still do not. Their greatest danger to this country lies in their ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government.

Charles Lindbergh (1902 - 1974)
