The picture below was taken during a KKK march sometime in the 1920's:
"American First" had another resurgence in 1940, and its main proponent was Charles Lindbergh.
The idea is still alive today.
An “America First” rally featuring Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was rejected by a third California venue on Saturday just hours before the event was set to start.
The city of Anaheim nixed the rally planned for the Anaheim Event Center because of “public safety concerns,” spokesman Mike Lyster said in a statement Saturday. The city and the operator of the center shared concerns about the rally. Lyster did not elaborate on which safety issues worried them.
At its peak in the 1920's, the KKK had 4 million members, including many prominent citizens.
Charles Lindbergh's flight in 1927 made him an American hero, and the kidnapping of his son in 1932 increased his esteem to most of the nation. Although he never ran for president, he used his public platform to champion patriotic and isolationist ideas, notes The Smithsonian Magazine. As a member of the notorious America First Committee, he advocated against the U.S. involvement in WWII. With some of his speeches, he aimed to protect the "gold star mothers," the American women whose children died in the war.
Today, the face of "America First is a rapist from Florida and a crazy woman from Georgia, who thinks that California wildfires were caused by Jewish lasers in space.
