Abstract or Summary
  • During the depression era, millions of Americans listened to the weekly radio addresses given by Father Charles Edward Coughlin. He devoted his career to speaking out against the evils of America and felt it his duty to warn Americans against the perpetrators of this evil. But after 1934, the tone of his messages became anti-Semitic and his following decreased. His hatred of Jews escalated and in 1942, he was permanently removed from the air waves. A literature review will examine the nature of American anti-Semitism up to 1934 through literature, periodicals and newspapers. The literature review will also identify the key anti-Semitic terminology that Father Coughlin used in his sermons. The analysis and interpretation will show how stylistic tokens of anti-Semitic rhetoric pervaded Father Coughlin's sermons from the beginning of his career, which led to his downfall as a demagogic orator.
