PLEASE TELL YOUR EXTRAORDINARY TALE ABOUT THE MOHAWK VALLEY:

Did you know that Dupont bought the Remington Arms gun company for the purpose of trying to overthrow FDR with a fascist takeover in 1934?

I first read/heard of this in a book that had been banned in the United States called. It was a free PDF I stumbled upon online and said to my college friend, hey didn’t your Dad work at Remington Arms? So we started reading it together. 

The book is called  DuPont Dynasty: Behind the Nylon Curtain by Gerard Colby

This is a link to a free PDF version of it.

Here a two important  excerpts from it detailing the people involved, including Douglas MacArther.

The tense year of 1934 was also when the Du Ponts suddenly bought a 56 percent interest in Remington Arms, the manufacturer of small arms and one-third of the country’s “sporting” ammunition. This investment secured a market for Du Pont gunpowder, as well as Remington’s additional asset as the largest producer of steel knives in the country.

Soon afterward, Du Pont also acquired the Charles Packer
Company, one of the country’s largest makers of shotguns, the Peters Cartridge Company, and the King Powder Company of Ohio.
60 These were all market-related acquisitions, but, according to charges before a Senate committee later that year, may also have been marked for more illegal purposes.

For in these same summer months of 1934, Remington Arms, the treasurer of the American Liberty League, and the name “Du Pont” were all implicated in one of the most bizarre plots in American history, a plot confirmed by the Dickstein-McCormick House Investigating Committee, to forcibly overthrow the Roosevelt administration and with it, the government of the United States.

On November 20, 1934, General Butler revealed the whole ugly scheme by testifying before a private session of the Special House Committee on Un-American Activities. He suggested that if the Committee wanted to get to the bottom of this, they question the biggest interests involved: Grayson M.-P. Murphy, General Douglas MacArthur, Hanford MacNider, ex-National Commander of the American Legion, and leaders of the American Liberty League. The Committee called none of these, but it did have James Van Zandt, National Commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and Gerald MacGuire testify under oath.

Van Zandt corroborated Butler’s testimony and admitted knowing of the plot. MacGuire, on the other hand, would admit only that he had met occasionally with Butler, but claimed that he had been “misunderstood.” French’s testimony, however, corroborated Butler’s and Van Zandt’s. But the Committee, perhaps frightened of the implications, refused to delve further into the conspiracy, suppressing much of the most incriminating
testimony in its official report to the House on February 15, 1939. Nevertheless, the report confirmed a plot to overthrow Roosevelt with a fascist coup d’êtat:

“In the last few weeks of the Committee’s official life it received evidence showing that certain persons had made an attempt to establish a fascist organization in this country.… There is no question that these attempts were discussed, were planned, and might have been placed in execution when and if the financial backers deemed expedient.

This committee received evidence from Major General Smedley D. Butler (retired), twice decorated by the Congress of the United States.” Butler testified before the Committee as to conversations with one Gerald C. MacGuire in which the latter is alleged to have suggested the formation of a fascist army under the leadership of General Butler.
