Washington DC - (Ass Mess): Campaign managers for Governor Mitt Romney's 2008 White House bid are begining a frantic rearguard action ahead of expected anti-Mormon sentiment which a new 9/11 movie about the 11 September 1857 act of religious terrorism may unleash.
Romney, a Republican 20/1 outsider in the 2008 race, is unlikely to be helped by the reopening of the 150 year old controversy into the Church of Latter Day Saints' darkest hour which is being recreated in a movie starring Jon Voight and Terence Stamp.
Next month's launch of Christopher Cain's film about the Mountain Meadows Massacre recreates the scene when fundamentalist Mormon settlers opened fire on a wagon train leaving more than 120 men, women and children dead in a South Utah flower field.
The film asks the fundamental question: who in authority knew of the impending massacre and why their actions failed to prevent it.
A chilling parallel touches on Brigham Young's letter telling church members in southern Utah to let the wagon train pass, and alleged letters sent by Pope Pius XII to Nazi overlords in World War II telling them to stop deportations of Jews, gypsies and other non-Arians to extermination camps.
In both instances the vital correspondence arrived too late.
Young's letter came two days after the massacre; Pius XII's two months.
In both instances suspected intervention by pro-massacre financial sources is suspected.
In the UK and in many part of the US the entire 1857 incident has been surgically excised from history books and students at national schools and colleges are systematically excluded from exposure to the records.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints erected a memorial on the massacre site in 1999 and has steadfastly maintained that Young had no role in the event.
As far as Pius XII is concerned the entire official state secrets systems of the so-called civilised western democrcies hinge on a massive whitewash of criminal records going back to the bankrolling of World War II.
These show Vatican collusion with Nazi supremacists, assorted US and European fascists including prominent British families: the Freemans and Freeman Mitfords - ie Baron Redesdale and his hell-whore daughter Unity; the Astors, the Mosleys and other assorted British Fascist Party cohorts.
And behind them the vast coffers of US banking giants including the Rothschilds.
In London political salons today the roots of 21st century Bush Administration fascism are regularly reviewed in the light of the massive failure by sucessive British governments to cull the horror of the second Baron Redesdale
and his relations whose collaboration with racists in power positions spawned the chimera of the current Bush/Blair monstrosity.
Cain's film is released on 22 June.
