Historical political conspiracies, part 3
Back for round three, we're taking on three quick topics this time--the early nineteenth century's obsessions with the nefarious doings of the Masons, the mid-nineteenth century panic about Catholics overrunning our precious, lily-white Protestant republic, and the pre-WWII anti-semitic fervor that frankly couldn't have come at a worse time. It's a cavalcade of ridiculous historical paranoid nonsense to temporarily distract you from the contemporary, ridiculous paranoid nonsense that haunts your every waking moment.
