Today is the 76th anniversary of D-Day, the day that the United States landed on French beaches to take on the Nazis and helped save the world.

Their great effort and sacrifice is why it’s incredible that some in media would compare the heroes of the Greatest Generation to the weaselly rioting little anarcho-Communists and other radical leftists who misleadingly cloak themselves with the name “Antifa” and claim they are “antifascist.”

But some did so, today of all days, including NPR’s Mara Liasson.

Vox ‘journalist’ Aaron Rupar:

Here’s the foreign policy adviser for Sen. Bernie Sanders (Socialist-VT).

Comparing WWII veterans who stormed the beaches with today’s terrorists, the people who have been burning and looting cities, as well as attacking and killing cops and other Americans is a disgraceful take.

Antifa now is actually more like the National Socialists we fought then. The Nazis started by beating up opponents in the streets. The thing about it is, it’s not just the Neo-Nazi folks Antifa thinks are fascists, it’s you and anyone to the right of Antifa. Antifa in one form or another has been rioting for decades having absolutely nothing to do with Neo-Nazis. They go to the G-20s and riot there. Why? Capitalism. Nothing to do with Nazis. That’s just a cloak to cover their radical leftist nature.


This is what they did and what they are about. How did this help anyone to destroy people like this?
