10 Things They Didn't Teach You in School.

  1. Fascist Coup Planned for America

    Another piece of history that you probably weren't taught about at school concerns a little known plot to implement a fascist takeover in the United States. The plot, recently investigated by BBC Radio 4, was led by wealthy industrialists and bankers, including Prescott Bush (grandfather of George W. Bush), who were displeased with Franklin D. Roosevelt's progressive political policies in the early 1930's. The plan may have succeeded were it not for a Marine Corps Major General named Smedley Butler, who blew the whistle on the plot after being approached by the influential power brokers who wanted him to lead the uprising.
