Hollywood actor Patton Oswalt has compared Antifa terrorists to the brave U.S. troops who landed at Normandy on D-Day.
Oswalt’s praise of the far-left group was in direct response to President Trump’s Sunday announcement that the U.S. would be declaring Antifa a terrorist organization.
“I’m 100% with you Donald!” Oswalt tweeted sarcastically with a photo of the World War II D-Day landing. “Antifa has been horrible for so long. Here’s some anti-fascists ruining a perfectly good beach day in France! Wish you could have been there to stop them!”
Breitbart.com reports: The Ratatouille star compared Antifa rioters — who have destroyed numerous small businesses and assaulted innocent bystanders in recent days — to U.S. troops landing at Normandy on D-Day.
Oswalt’s conflation of Antifa with U.S. soldiers who fought Nazi Germany during World War II is a common tactic used among left-wing defenders of the extremist organization who take the name “Antifa,” or “anti-fascist,” at face value.
Following President Trump’s announcement on Sunday, Twitter was flooded with users who expressed solidarity with the violent group by tweeingd the hashtag #IamAntifa while also noting relatives who fought during World War II.
