Dearborn Beats Its Breast over Henry Ford’s Anti-Semitism, Ignores Islam

Dearborn, Michigan’s local historical commission has adopted a resolution calling on Mayor Jack O’Reilly to reverse his recent firing of the editor of the commission’s quarterly magazine, the Dearborn Historian, over the January edition’s cover story. O’Reilly also killed the issue’s release, but the article was published anyway in the online news site, Deadline Detroit. The censored story, “Henry Ford and The International Jew,” was meant to mark the centennial of Henry Ford acquiring a local newspaper, the Dearborn Independent. Ford used the paper to launch a 91-week series of anti-Semitic articles, repackaged into book form as The International Jew.
