1943 US War Department Anti-Fascist PSA

Al-Jazeera released this video and they claim it is a 1943 U.S. Department of War propaganda video.  If it is verified from 1943 that is quite remarkable on how very much it mirrors lots of recent events, but I am holding judgment until I see some confirmation because on Youtube this was posted on 08/13/17 and I can't find any source of it before August of this year.

Edit: Nevermind, this is confirmed from the 40's, but this sources it as originally from 1943 and then re-released in 1947 (above snippet of the video is seen starting at 2:00 in):

nice post grot. we could remind people that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it, but the current fascists are completely convinced they are not fascists, but noble protectors, shielding victims from unwholesome ideas and opinions.
