This is an excerpt from the new book, When the Right Went To War: The True Story of How the American Left Fought Fascism and the War for the World from World War I to the Second World War.
The title is a reference to a famous quote by American revolutionary, and writer John Steinbeck, that he said: “We must fight fascism with our lives.
It will destroy us all.”
Steinbeck was a radical populist who was a staunch supporter of the French Revolution and the American Civil War.
He wrote about how, “when we have a great war, the American people will have no friends.”
The War For the World is Steinbeck’s account of the American right’s support for the French and German Versailles treaties during World War II.
The Right was in many ways like a social club.
Steinbeck describes how in the summer of 1919, while his father was on the warpath, he was invited to a party hosted by one of his old college buddies, George F. Will.
The two men had a few drinks, and the conversation turned to politics.
Will told the story of the year before, when his father had tried to recruit a group of college Republicans to the National Republican Committee.
Will said the young men were shocked to find themselves on the same side as the Bolsheviks.
Will explained how the National Republicans would go into battle, “with no political organization.
We went into battle and made a few speeches.
And that’s all that was left for us, was to go back to our own dorms and to drink beer and smoke cigars and watch television and read.”
Will said that the National Conservatives were the “real” Republican party, but it was a “totally different thing.”
Will described how the Republican National Committee in the 1940s and ’50s, which had been dominated by men like Franklin Roosevelt, was “a party of the people.”
Will explained that the new Republican party was a combination of the New Deal, the Great Society and the Tea Party.
But it also included “the most vicious racists and the most violent, bigoted elements of the left.”
The American Right’s support of the Versaillese treaties had a political dimension.
In 1920, as the French were threatening to attack the United States and World War One was raging in Europe, American conservatives were calling for the war to be declared “sooner or later,” even if it meant that Americans had to pay more taxes.
Will wrote, “The more a country is forced to pay for the wrongs done to the people of the United Kingdom, the more urgent it becomes to do something about it.”
Will wrote that this sentiment was not just shared by the conservative media.
“Every newspaper and every radio talk show in the country, and in the nation, was urging the nation to pay the Versas debts.”
Will went on to write: The Versaills debt was the ultimate political issue.
In every political situation, there is a demand for money.
The demand for payment, however, is often masked by the demand for peace.
It is the demand that is the most difficult for the American public to understand.
This is not a demand that can be met by any one government.
It can be satisfied only by a complete revolution in the American mind.
The French and the German Versas had a devastating impact on the American population.
In fact, it is a good thing that the American left didn’t follow Will’s lead.
Instead, it embraced the Versasi treaties, arguing that the Versarillese Treaty was a treaty of peace and friendship between nations.
It also said that it was in the best interest of America to pay their debts.
The American right was also not afraid to push the American Constitution through Congress.
They had an excellent chance of passing the Constitution, as it passed the House of Representatives in 1920.
Will described this in the book: There was no question that the right wing of the Republican Party was eager to make the Versais Versaillon Treaty the law of the land, and it was the American constitution that was the tool that was used to get it passed.
The Constitution was a huge victory for the right.
It provided the necessary checks and balances in a constitutional system that had been under constant attack for the previous century.
The Versaillias Versaillinas Treaty was not the first time that the Republicans had used the Constitution to force the Constitution onto the American voters.
The party had used similar tactics to force a series of amendments through Congress during the Civil War and Reconstruction.
Will was not alone in his admiration for the Versanis Versaillian treaty.
“The American Constitution has been used in a variety of ways, most notably through the ratification of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,” he wrote.
“There is no doubt that the ratification campaign, through its constant use of the Constitution and its emphasis on the Constitution as the vehicle of legislation, helped to bring about this historic change.”
