Don Cheadle Embarrasses Himself. Mistakes Eagle Pin for Nazi Insignia...
Have you taken the slightest peep at the news over the past two years? If so, you'll know the left has Nazis on the brain. All day, every day, twice on Sunday since they've replaced church with making dumbasses of themselves. If a conservative so much as partakes of a delicious Caesar salad, the left will try rationalizing it as a secret rallying cry for the Third Reich. Especially a salad with gluten-filled croutons. My God.
Don't believe me? Just give this knee-slapper a look-see. Actor Don Cheadle, most famous for being the Avenger people care the least about, tried moonlighting as a Nazi hunter and came up magnificently short. Much to everyone's amusement.
Well, what they did not see coming is that the guy is named Ed Martin and his eagle pin is for the … wait for it … Eagle Forum:
@DonCheadle @CNN His name is Ed Martin and he is with the Eagle Forum. Phyllis Schlafly founded the conservative org. Ugh. 😑— Kim Martin 🆘 (@Kim Martin 🆘)1503103422.0
So you know, the motto for the Eagle Forum, founded in America in 1972, (not in Germany, circa the 1930s) is "Leading the pro-family movement since 1972." The motto is not "Leading the white people to the promised land of milk and Vanilla wafers."
Poor Donnie. And I'll bet he thought he'd really stumbled onto something.
Eagles don't automatically equal the second coming of Hitler, foolish Donald. Now, if the eagle were clutching a swastika in its talons, he might have had himself a point. But, instead of doing his homework, Don staged a makeshift Twitter Nuremburg trial and embarrassed the crap out of himself.
Leftists have completely worn out the term Nazi. Kind of like feminists who believe everything, including a stop sign, is a symbol of the patriarchy. Before Trump, Nazism involved goose-stepping, toothbrush mustaches, and a disdain for yarmulkes. Now, the definition is anyone or anything leftists don't like (see Antifa Targets New ‘Fascist’ Adversaries: ‘Neo-Nazi’ Furries! and Leftist Snowflake Writer Claims Using ‘Snowflake’ Insult Makes You a Nazi…).
But, ask people who were actually present in Nazi Germany? They have a different opinion of who best fits the Nazi bill. Here's a hint. They stab horses, destroy monuments, and shut down free speech at every turn. Should you not want to click the links in the previous sentence: AntiFa.
Don Cheadle should stick to what he knows best: reading words written by people smarter than he is.
Five years ago, the KKK and neo-Nazis were a handful of geriatric farts, having secret white power barbecues in the woods. But now, with the advent of leftist identity politics, Klansmen are growing in number and mowing down protesters in their Challengers. Rather than dismissing them as just a minority of crazy dumbf*cks, the left is giving too much credit and attention to the neo-Nazis. As Cheadle did by trying to make an eagle lapel a Nazi symbol.
The point is, maybe it's time to give this tired rhetoric a rest.
While we're on the subject...
