Scientific Dadaism: This was an interesting history paper: 'Reactionaries and Einstein's Fame: "German Scientists for the Preservation of Pure Science," Relativity, and the Bad Nauheim Meeting'. The story of a fascist anti-relativity astroturf organization:

Indeed, the theory of relativity was being “thrown to the masses” in exactly the same way as “the dadaist gentlemen” promoted their wares, which had to do as little as relativity with the observation of nature. No one should be surprised, therefore, Weyland concluded, that a movement had arisen to counter this “scientific Dadaism”.

Update: In other anti-Semitism news, I also found interesting this paper on Moscow State University's "Jewish [Math] Problems".
