Don’t Be A Sucker

May 22, 2010

This 1947 movie made by the War Department starts out with a couple examples of people getting suckered, then segues into… well seemingly into a Tea Party rally, except they’re talking about Negroes and Catholics and Freemasons instead of gays and Latinos and atheists…

“Hey, what’s wrong with the Masons? I’m a Mason!” says the young man who’s been agreeing with racist harangue up til that moment.  The Hungarian immigrant next to him replies; “And that makes it different, doesn’t it?”

“Prejudices are made for us by someone who wants something.  Somebody’s going to get something out of it… and it isn’t going to be you.”
