Cartoon About World War 1: Seeing war in a positive light in 1936 (4 years before world war 2)...
The "Southern Blue Bloods" financed the North vs. South Civil War (History repeating itself?)...
The themes of glory in war as well as mocking scenes such as the Confederate soldiers playing Jazz all reflect the attitude of that time (The South must have felt sympathy for the Nazis to some extent given their natural affinity for each other). Seeing war as glorious is an old story used by old men (illustrated by Metallica below) ... usually "chicken hawks" i.e. people who wouldn't go to war themselves - or send their family - and often have records of draft dodging but also those who have bought the propaganda of their time, i.e. the followers of the chickenhawks.
