Leftists: D-Day GIs Were Antifa
Written by R. Cort Kirkwood
The radical Left beclowned itself this weekend with the claim that the Antifa goons who are looting and burning American cities and attacking cops are doing the same job as the American boys who landed at Normandy.
The 76th anniversary of the Allied landings on June 6, 1944 to open the final campaign in the liberation of Europe occasioned the absurd equation that came from at least four people who should know better.
Not surprisingly, one is a top advisor to socialist Bernie Sanders, whose presidential campaign staffers promised to burn cities and murder cops if he lost nomination, and then promised gulags and firing squads if he landed in the White House.
But more frightening and somewhat surprising is the idea that masked looters and criminals, who attack the innocent with little fear of resistance or being shot and who destroy and loot businesses, are comparable to highly trained fighting men who landed on a beach and faced artillery and enfilading machine gun fire to free countries from Hitler’s murderous dictatorship.
Foreign Policy Advisor
One of the commentators was Matt Duss, Sanders’ senior foreign policy advisor. Duss tweeted that “June 6, 1944 [was the] Largest ANTIFA operation in history,” a remark that invited this rejoinder: “You are either insane or incredibly stupid. No other explanation.”
Another of the bright lights who think Antifa is comparable to the boys of the 29th Infantry Division who landed on Omaha Beach is Mara Liasson, a reporter for National Public Radio and contributor to Fox News.
Responding to an animated map that depicted Allied forces on the coast of France, Liasson offered this one: “Biggest antifa rally in history.”
Replied Florida state Representative Anthony Sabbatini, “FYI if you are unaware of how FAR LEFT FRINGE @NPR has become, look no further” than Liasson’s tweet. “One of their top journalists just equated the American troops who landed in France on D-Day with the subhuman violent leftist freaks known as ‘Antifa.’”
Paul Farhi, media writer for the Washington Post, hastened to suggest likewise: “Friend points out on D-Day anniversary that the men who stormed the beaches of Normandy were the true and original antifa.”
That, in turn, invited this observations from a reporter for the Daily Mail about the fact that the original Antifa was pro-communist, meaning pro-dictatorship, and the reporter’s noting that the flags of the groups are the same:
The original Antifa, BTW, were the German communist Antifaschistische Aktion party. Here’s their 1932 conference. Look at the flag. Now look at the modern Antifa flag on their handbook.
The tweet featured of photo of radical Islamist Keith Ellison, Minnesota’s attorney general, holding an Antifa Handbook.
The remarks are hardly surprising given just how unhinged Sanders’ staff members are, or how openly leftist the media have become, largely thanks to their Trump Derangement.
Sanders did not fire staff members who promised mayhem and murder whether Sanders won or lost.
“I’m ready to start tearing bricks up and start fighting,” one said. “I’ll straight up get armed, I want to learn how to shoot, and go train. I’m ready for the f***ing revolution, bro…. I’m telling you. Guillotine the rich.”
Said another, “If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination … f***ing Milwaukee will burn. It’ll start in Milwaukee,” he said. “We’re gonna make 1978  look like a f***ing Girl Scouts’ f***ing cookout.”
Remember what happened when McGovern got f***ed in Chicago in 1978? Riots. F***ing people getting beaten by the cops. The cops are gonna be the ones getting f***ing beaten in Milwaukee. They’re gonna call up the National Guard for that s**t. I promise you that.
The rhetoric did not, apparently, surprise or displease the elderly socialist, who has repeatedly praised communist mass murderer Fidel Castro and the Chinese Reds.

Sanders and his staff members aside, it’s safe to say that none of the men who landed at Normandy were sued for an unprovoked attack on or terrorizing a journalist.
The men who landed at Normandy were fighting this nation’s enemies in a declared war. Antifa is this nation’s enemy and has declared war on its people.
