The most famous of these radio personalities were Iva Ikuko Toguri D'Aquino (pictured above right), who broadcast for Japan and came to be known as “Tokyo Rose”; Mildred Elizabeth Gillars, her German counterpart, referred to by Allied troops as “Axis Sally”(above left); and Rita Luisa Zucca, the Italian propagandist, also called “Axis Sally” (you’d have thought they could have found another name, like “Fascist Fatima”)
These women shared four fundamental similarities. All three were US citizens, raised in the
Tokyo Rose was a Methodist. Rita Zucca and Mildred Gillars were both Catholics. Rita was even educated in a convent. But then, the vast majority of the Third Reich and Italian Fascists were good Christians as well.
There are many other famous US Xtian traitors, also Muslims, Jews, and probably atheists - although in my research I couldn’t find any specific designation of atheist among the top ten American traitors.
Given the infamous record of Jesus worshiping home grown turn coats, you’d think that flag waving self righteous Christians would be more circumspect before they branded fellow Americans as un-American just because we don’t buy into supernatural foolishness.
No doubt right wing flag pin wearing “Love it or Leave it” shouting fundie Xtians will protest and say their traitor brethren in Christ weren’t “true Christians.” But since Jesus wasn’t an American, and cared only if they accepted him as their Lard and Slaver, he wouldn’t have given a fiddler’s damn about their politics. It’s just common sense. But then again, common sense doesn’t compute with fundies.
Bottom line: professing belief in resurrected man-gods, going to religious schools, wearing a cross around ones neck or planting crosses on public land doesn’t make one a patriot or “true American.” It just makes one a religionist as prone to selling out one’s homeland as anyone. History is proof of that.
