The Lincoln Project — the notorious group of supposed conservatives who were out to get former President Donald Trump but ended up disgraced and humiliated — continues to demonstrate a stunning lack of self-awareness and basic intelligence.
Joining the legion of left-wingers who sing the praises of Antifa — the lawless, militant thugs who disguise their identities while ganging up and terrorizing those who get in their way — the Lincoln Project used the anniversary of D-Day to equate Antifa with the soldiers who stormed Normandy’s beaches to fight Adolf Hitler and Nazis in World War II.
Here’s the ad the Lincoln Project ran:

“The work of opposing fascism is as American as apple pie,” the text of the group’s Twitter post read. “As we again face the rise fascism — this time on our own shores — that work must continue.”
The ad included a video whose narrator actually referred to the World War II allies as “Antifa” — as if any of those incredibly brave and honorable soldiers would be caught dead participating in any of Antifa’s thuggish behavior.
Incredibly, the tweet has received over 10,000 likes since Sunday, as well as a number of kudos-drenched comments. But not everybody is buying what the Lincoln Project is trying to sell:
- “Those American soldiers loved America, loved the flag, were patriotic, brave, HATED Nazism AND communism, and would never destroy the property of innocent American citizens,” one commenter said. “Complete opposite of today’s America-hating Antifa domestic terrorists.”
- “Anyone comparing current day Antifa (Marxists) to veterans of Allied countries in the world wars needs their diplomas revoked and their heads examined,” another user said. “Honor the heroes and please refrain from invoking parallels to domestic terrorists within the same discussion.”
- “Stop. Just stop. You don’t get to befoul the greatest generation by usurping their accomplishments,” another commenter declared. “They were fighting you, vacuous imbecile.”
