For people who don’t know: there’s a short film documentary about this event that is nominated for an oscar.
You can see it here:
After you watch the short film, read this Washington Post article about the [star of the film](https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2017/10/17/when-american-nazis-rallied-in-manhattan-one-working-class-jewish-man-from-brooklyn-took-them-on/).
Reminds me of the silver legion of America.
Note that this is not today’s MSG, which was built after Penn Station was knocked down in the 60s, and is actually the fourth MSG. The first two were actually on Madison Square!
They totally missed an opportunity to make more swastikas by arranging the guys dressed in white in a different fashion.
Was it known in the US that the Nazis did genocide during this time?
You’d fill it 5 times over these days with the Trumpkin N*zis in America. Sobering to look at these old images and see we haven’t learned a thing.
Just think… 36 short months later, many of these men would face compulsory conscription and be sent to the Western Front…
I liked the musical (“The Producers”) much better.
A nazi rally on the day I was born. **LOVELY.**
And all these folks went on to have children who are parents to this day..
Just people living in the moment, not a cell phone in site.
Forget the Nazi rally at MSG. What about the nazi neighborhood in Yaphank Ny?
All those police there to club anyone who didn’t behave appropriately.
Wow, this is crazy and was not aware of this event. Watched the short film “A Night at the Garden” which was very eye opening.
Hey look, the 33% we’re so familiar with!
Was there ever a rally like this in Britain? If so,
I assume it was arranged under the British Union of Fascist lead by Oswald Mosley?
Try reading “The Transfer Agreement” by Edwin Black… beyond sinister!

This was billed on the marquee outside as a “pro america” rally. Just like the traitors in the Republican party like to say today.
Where’s Timothy McVeigh when you need him?
