Architect and anti-Semite Philip Johnson dead

T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Joseph Campbell, Charles Lindbergh: there’s an endless list of famous anti-Semites. Johnson helped organize a U.S. fascist party. He worked for the Nazi sympathizer and radio broadcaster, Father Charles E. Coughlin. He attended one of Hitler's Nuremberg rallies in 1938, and in 1939 he followed the German army into Poland. "We saw Warsaw burn and Modlin being bombed," he wrote. "It was a stirring spectacle." Get the full dirt.
