To the editor:

So it sounds as if World War II Vets are terrorists. Apparently they are according to Commander “Bone Spurs” Trump, some Republicans and people like Mr. Vaughn Roy, who seem to think and speak so.

See, what Mr. Trump, or those Republicans or Mr. Roy do not seem to realize is those brave men and women who fought Hitler and Nazism of World War II were members of Antifa. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, those soldiers were some of the baddest and the original anti-fascists.

See, Anti-fa, or anti-fascists means against fascism. I am an anti-fascist, and so are all those vets who fought in World War II. They were fighting against the Fascism of Hitler, they sure were not fighting for it now were they? So in fact the vets of World War II were Antifa.

And if Mr. Trump, Mr. Roy or anyone else wants to call me, or the vets of World War II terrorists for being against fascism? Then have at it. Because anyone who is against Antifa means they are for fascism, which makes them a traitor and an enemy of all freedom-loving patriots of the United States and the world over.

Fascism is a form of radical right-wing, authoritarian, ultra-nationalism movement, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.

The first fascist movements emerged in Italy during World War I. Fascism is placed on the far-right within the traditional left-right political spectrum.

The real dumb thing is? The fascists just do not seem to want to learn from their own history of defeat. They were defeated during the Civil War, World War I and World War II. Sure they gained some power for a while, but in the end? They lost and those of Antifa were the cause of their defeat. Maybe that is why they are so afraid of Antifa now? Because they know that each and every time fascism reared it's ugly head upon the world the anti-fascists put them down and they lost?

So call me a terrorist all you wish because I stand with Antifa. Insult and degrade me all you wish for my participation in the anti-fascist movement. Because you would also have to insult and degrade and call terrorists, each and every World War II vet you run into who fought the fascism of Hitler. And are you, Mr. Roy, or Commander “Bone-Spurs” Trump or any Republican willing to do that?

Again, if you are against anti-fascists then you are FOR fascism. Which would make you both an enemy and a traitor to the United States. And no one should respect or give any quarter to any enemy or traitor of the United States, whether they be fascists or pathological lying, treasonous psychotics in our Oval Office currently residing there, pretending to be a president. Our vets of World War II surely did not. Neither will I or any other member of Antifa.
