So what? A few years ago, I received a written letter of thanks and a medal and accommodation from the recent former President of the United States. Does that mean that I agree with him or support him? Not even a tiny bit!!! I was recognized for a selfless act while following orders. Not for one second did I support the man's policies. Why judge Henry Ford for some recognition that a monster like Hitler gave him? Not Ford's fault.

Historians use that as a basis for calling Henry Ford some ugly things. By the way, there is no law against not liking someone or a group of people. Political correctness was not one of Henry Ford's concerns. As a fellow engineer, I like the way he thought when it relates to machinery. The rest of the stuff about him isn't any of my business.
