Salutations to Con for acceptance, now. Henry Ford directly supported the Nazi Party(Of Germany during and before WW2), allow me to show you the money.

Article 1. Henry was an established and highly active Anti-Semite.
Henry Ford was the author and proprietor of a series of pamphets/booklets titled "The International Jew".(1)If you decide to read into it you will find him flinging accusational and blatantly racist material. May I note I became a best seller in Germany, and Germany would in time distribute and translate it into 12 other languages, even today it remains in re-print, and is admired zealously by Neo-Nazis and White supremacists alike. Not only that, but he made public statements denouncing the Jewish race, Throughout this Book and Copies of his newspaper, "Dearborn Independant".

Provided below is a link to all contents within "The International Jew". I would suggest you skim read and develop a sense of its meaning.

Article 2. He was awarded, and graciously accepted "The Cross of the German Eagle Order" from Nazi Germany.
In 1937, Adolf Hitler instituted a entirely new medal for foreign confidentials, and Supporters. That year, Henry Ford would be the first recipient of this dubious honour. Wouldn't you expect an Opposer/denier of the Nazi party to deny this without thought?

Article 3. He gave permission to Hitler himself, for the Construction of Ford Truck and Automotive factories in Nazi Germany, and quite possibly used P.O.W. Slave labour within these establishments.

Article 4. Henry Ford sent Hitler/NSDAP monetary assets.
Henry Ford is recorded to have sent 40,000 Deutchsmarks to the NSDAP, for continued printing of "The International Jew", while, interestingly and most confounding, he would deliver through couriers, 50,000 Deutchsmarks on Hitler birthday. Definitively between the year of 1937-1939, and unknown but quite possibly Until Hitlers demise.

Not really debatable. Kind of hard to refute a well established historical fact.
