1. Considering he just labeled all of us who are against fascism as terrorists,

this would naturally come next. He's not even trying to hide it any more.

I think we can call it fascism now.

Let's vote the fucker out.

And watch out for the Republicans. They CHEAT. They'll steal your absentee ballots, outright. They did it in my district, then ran a Boss Hogg lookalike. I will never forgive them for those two things alone. Now, pro-Nazi crap? They gotta go.

NEVER give your mail in or absentee ballot to someone who comes to your house and claims to be any kind of election official. That is the tactic they used and then they naturally never turned in those ballots they stole. NC had to endure a Boss Hogg lookalike when Republicans were allowed to run a whole list of new candidates, aka allowed to change horses and run again. It was a miserable nightmare.

5. Labeled anyone opposed to fascism a terrorists... and mocking us as well.

Yeah, this is on purpose and don't even begin to try to tell me they do not know what they are doing. They know, they solidly know.

8. Vote him out

It is not enough to just vote him out and take back the Executive Branch, but we have to completely purge the Republican Party from the Senate and the House this November by voting all the mother....ers out of office. After that, there must be a reckoning for all of their enablers through prosecution.

24. No it's not so hard to believe.

Because of the “pandemic” of ignorance we have to wade through, neck-deep.

And way too often it’s willful ignorance. Deliberate. Intentional. “Baked-in.” Willful. The “I know what I know” excuse, or the “my mind’s made up” syndrome.

4. Snarkily: I'm sure it's just a little "inside joke" among enthusiastic campaign staff, right?

By the way, do we know who's creating this "messaging"? I'd sure like to find out.

6. Bears all the hallmarks of Stephen Miller

Trump is far too stupid and uneducated to pull off a stunt like this without Nazi cooperation.

9. Facebook takes down Trump ads 'for violating our policy against organized hate'

New York (CNN Business)Facebook (FB) on Thursday said it had take action against ads run by President Trump's re-election campaign for breaching its policies on hate. The ads, which attacked what the Trump campaign described as "Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups," featured an upside-down triangle.

The Anti-Defamation League said Thursday the triangle "is practically identical to that used by the Nazi regime to classify political prisoners in concentration camps."

"We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate. Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group's symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol," Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesperson, told CNN Business.

The ads targeted the far left group Antifa, calling on Trump supporters to back the President's calls to designate the group a terrorist organization.

21. I hate fucksticks up here in the north who do shit like that

Do they not know who in the fuck their ancestors likely fought for? When they do shit like that they piss and shit on the graves of the men and women who fought for the Union against a band of traitors.

16. They are claiming its an emoji

Last edited Thu Jun 18, 2020, 06:50 PM - Edit history (2)

Which it is, it's a Windows version of the imojie labeled upside down red triangle (https://unicode.org/emoji/charts/full-emoji-list.html).

The problem with that argument is what does it have to do with the post if not a reference to Nazi badges? There is no logical reason to post it with the content unless its a reference to Nazis.

Edit to add:

https://emojis.wiki/red-triangle-pointed-down/

Meaning of 🔻 Red Triangle Pointed Down Emoji
Red Triangle Pointed Down emoji is a red triangle with its top pointed pointing down. You can use this emoji as another version of an arrow. Use it instead of the ⬇️ Down Arrow emoji to tell the person you are talking to to pay close attention to what you are going to send next.

This emoji can also be used to tell someone to lower the volume of whatever they are watching or listening to. Send it with the 🔊 Speaker High Volume emoji to kindly tell them to pipe down.

18. Are Swastikas that far behind... Trump loves white supremacy ...

Can you just imagine all the blonde women gushing over their new leader's symbol the Swastika?



Originally Swastika were a markings used on maps to show where Shinto Temples were located. There is a huge history about it before it was weaponized by Nazi Germany.

19. Per the Washington Post article, there were 88 ads that featured the symbol

88 is American nazi slang for Heil H*tler.
