Fascisti of America, Omaha 1922 (Edward Jajko, USA, 08/28/17 4:54 am)

Knowing that Eugenio Battaglia is highly sensitive to misuse of the term Fascist, I almost hate to inform him that, in the matter of the "Fascisti of America" he has unnecessarily deployed his defenses of Mussolini (and has gratuitously slighted the people of 1920s Nebraska).

This iPhone in my hands is so brilliantly designed by the Apple engineers just a couple of miles from my house that I am unable to figure out how to extract and post the URL link. So I suggest to Eugenio that he Google "omaha fascisti of america" and then read the extract from, believe or not, the Journal of Electrical Workers and Operators.

JE comments:  Following Ed Jajko's instructions, I found the (very long) link:  https://books.google.com/books?id=vb0uAQAAIAAJ&pg=PA626&lpg=PA626&dq=omaha+fascisti+of+america&source=bl&ots=Rn1-y3ZJTV&sig=wqPv5Q2MIhhlxRZcyktSKAvH7ls&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjslraO7_nVAhUB94MKHahmAb4Q6AEIOjAD#v=onepage&q=omaha%20fascisti%20of%20america&f=false

The article is from 1922, and it stresses that the American Fascisti, headquartered in Omaha, are not connected to the Italians.  To their credit, the Electrical Workers take a mocking stance against the nativist Fascisti and their fellow-travelers, the KKK:  "The Fascisti of America (distinct from the Italians organized in this country) are now on their feet and eagerly bidding for trade in the whipping and murder games."  Note the emphasis on organizing.  Remember when Barack Obama was derided for his roots as a "community organizer"?

So did Tim Ashby get his dates right?  There was a self-described fascist group in Omaha as early as 1922.
