Older and Older
From a link I've had on this blog a long time
    Fascists and Nazis, yes, but few today have heard of the Sinarquista in Portugal, the Falangista in Spain, the Croix de Feu and Cagoulard in Belgium and France, the Stahlhelm in Austria, the Knights of St. Michael and the Iron Guard in Roumania, the Ustachl in Yugoslavia, the Arrow-Close of Hungary and others in Poland, Lithuania , Norway and elsewhere.
Erased from memory are the isolationist, pro-fascist and obligatorily anti-Semitic movements in the United States: the Silver Shirts and their "fuhrer" William Pelley, styled after the Nazi Brown Shirts, or Fritz Kuhn's German-American Bund, or the pro-German isolationism of Lucky Linde's America First, or the Crusaders for Economic Liberty, the American Vigilanate Federation or the Priest from Detroit, Father's Coughlin's National Union Party.
