Charles Lindbergh's September 1941 Anti-War Speech
This is a classic and timely speech by the legendary Charles Lindbergh on the subject of non-interventionism in European affairs. He gave this presentation at an America First rally a couple months prior to the December 7, 1941 "surprise attack" by Japan on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor. The majority of the American people wanted no part of the conflicts raging in Europe and Asia, but behind the scenes President Franklin D. Roosevelt, while promising to keep the U.S. out of any these wars, was secretly steering the country into them.
The historical record conclusively proves that the Roosevelt administration had advance knowledge of the Japanese plan to strike Pearl Harbor but did nothing to warn military commanders in Hawaii to have it prevented. The attack was allowed to go forward so America would be forced into another world war just as Roosevelt had been planning all along to legitimize communism and further the drive to build world government under the United Nations that would be created at the close of the war.
