"The work of opposing fascism is as American as apple pie. As we again face the rise [sic] fascism — this time on our own shores — that work must continue," the Lincoln Project's account tweeted Sunday. Project Lincoln's account specified Friday that the "work must go on" to combat "the rise of right-wing fascism."
Project Lincoln used the Normandy attack by sharing free publicity for the violent Antifa organization, comparing its radical members to American patriots.
The video re-shared by Project Lincoln several times on Twitter features heroic music and cuts of World War II soldiers battling Nazi Germany differentiated from modern-day radicals moving to burn down American cities.
"Who is Antifa?" the ad begins, claiming that Antifa "stormed the beaches of Normandy, parachuted into the French countryside..." The video claims Antifa "took down Nazi machine gone nests, tore apart the Third Reich's strong holds, liberated concentration camps, liberated France, Italy, Belgium, Holland." The ad says that Antifa is part of "a war we still fight today" against fascism. Images of former President Donald Trump and Fox News host Tucker Carlson flashes as the narrator claims that anti-fascism is not "a cable news talking point" but "an American ideal that should be memorialized because it was paid for in blood."
On Friday night, MSNBC host Brian Williams, who still has not told viewers of the Lincoln Project's ethical problems, ended the show by showcasing the new ad lauding Antifa members and likening the operatives to World War II veterans.
"An important anniversary is coming up this weekend," Williams said to the camera. "We hope you can take a moment and remember it. It was beyond bold. It was outlandish. Over 150,000 men invaded the French coastline under withering German fire to begin their march across Europe where they would go on to win World War II 336 days later. While others will debate whether or not we could possibly mount such a thing today as broken as we are, there was a time when we saved the world from tyranny and fascism. If it wasn't our finest hour, it's hard to say what was. And the folks at the Lincoln Project are out with a reminder to all."
Antifa engages in tumults and attacks journalists despite what Lincoln Project wants you to believe. Antifa just attacked and assaulted journalist Andy Ngo for covering the latest far-left protest in Portland last weekend. This is not the first time Ngo has been attacked as he has been targeted multiple times by the organization.
