Let's say you're in the market for a car. Choices are plenty! We'll make one guess, however: you're not buying a Dodge. Has any Jew ever owned one?
Well, take a look on the right. Yep, that was Dodge's logo until the 1930s. What secrets lie in its history? Perhaps we were wrong to turn our back on Dodges?
The theories for the logo are many. The Dodge Brothers in question were company co-founders John Francis and Horace Elgin. Some say they were Jewish. Some say the logo was to piss off competitor (and America's #1 antisemite) Henry Ford. And some say it was to appease Jewish investors (for what is a Jewish rumor without overt antisemitism?).
No, no, and no. There were no outside investors, the brothers were actually friends with Ford, and they were clearly not Jewish. The reason for the Jewish star? It's not there; it's just two interlocking Ds.
So, no, you're not buying that Dodge...
