Actor Patton Oswalt claims Antifa thugs are comparable to heroic U.S troops who fought in WWII

Hollywood actor Patton Oswalt has compared the violent leftist terrorist group Antifa to the brave troops who landed on the beaches of Normandy, France on D-Day during World War II to defend against the Nazi invasion of Europe.

The Ratatouille star claims the heroic troops are comparable to Antifa thugs because the left-wing terror group's name is short for "anti-fascists."

On Sunday, President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. will officially designate the extremist group as a "terrorist organization."

In response, Oswalt tweeted a photo of the World War II D-Day landing, that he sarcastically captioned, “I’m 100% with you Donald!”

“Antifa has been horrible for so long," he added.

"Here’s some anti-fascists ruining a perfectly good beach day in France!" Oswalt continued.

"Wish you could have been there to stop them!"

Antifa rioters have destroyed numerous small businesses and assaulted innocent bystanders in recent days, according to Breitbart.

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 tweeting the hashtag #IamAntifa while also noting relatives who fought during World War II.

In reality, Antifa is an extremist group that uses physical violence to intimidate ideological opponents.

Antifa rioters tend to dress in all black — so-called “black bloc” — with their faces covered in order to conceal their identities from law enforcement.

Antifa members have physically assaulted conservatives and supporters of President Trump.

They have also destroyed property and set buildings ablaze during protests against prominent conservatives, including the 2017 Berkeley protests that resulted in significant damage to the UC Berkeley campus.

Journalist Andy Ngo was physically attacked by Antifa members during a 2019 clash in Portland, Oregon, which has become a hotbed of Antifa activity.

The mainstream media has tended to ignore or downplay Antifa’s violent tactics, often referring to the group by the less threatening name “Anti-fascists.”

Atty. General William Barr said Sunday that Antifa has hijacked the protests following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in order to promote its own violent goals.

“The voices of peaceful and legitimate protests have been hijacked by violent radical elements,” Barr said.

"Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate, violent, and extremist agenda."

He said the Justice Department will treat violence carried out or instigated by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting as “domestic terrorism.”
