How liberating 9 5, 5:58am

Not true. One of the biggest names in mass media at the time was Father Coughlin, who outright advocated we support the German side of the war. People were able to hold pro-Nazi rallies without any fuss. We like to think that in the 30's and 40's, the US was entirely anti-fascist and dead set against Nazism, but entire swaths of the country were not. When the war began, patriotic fervor tended to squash any public displays of support for enemy nations, and after the war the nation took a hard look at what the results of Nazism actually were and it has basically become the secular equivalent of Satan.
