Mexico: FOR Liberty, AGAINST Nazis (WWII toons, video)

mexiconaziSeventy-some years ago, Mexico joined the Allies (AKA the United Nations) to fight against Nazi Germany. Contrast and compare with 2016 when the U.S.A. will soon be “led” by its very own homegrown fascist.

Back in the good old days, the U.S. Office of Inter-American Affairs produced and released the propaganda flick Mexican Moods praising our new World War II BFFs south of the border, the place where cheeto boy wants to build his wall.

Sometimes shaky period color footage is matched by shaky period narration and musical production numbers as the film celebrates Mexico’s joining the United Nations, silver making in Taxco, modern Mexican airports, Aztec ruins and rituals and Mexican movie and stage stars like handsome young comedian Cantinflas.

Remember, we’re all Americans! ¡Somos todos Americanos!
