If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Someone must have called Mayor O'Reilley

Updated: Wednesday January 30 10:43 a.m. EST The current Mayor of Dearborn, Mayor John B. “Jack” O’Reilly, has ordered the issue of Dearborn Historian containing this deep dive into Ford’s anti-semitism not be sent into circulation, Deadline Detroit reports. O’Reilly took exception to the cover of the quarterly magazine, which featured a quote from Henry Ford next to a picture of the automotive tycoon. The quote read: “The Jew is a race with no civilization to point to, no aspiring religion, no great achievement in any realm.”As the Dearborn Historian is a publication of the City of Dearborn, the mayor has the prerogative to nix an entire issue. The story can still be found on Deadline Detroit’s website.
