Just in case anyone still doesn’t believe these people are Nazis promoting trump to Neo Nazis and white supremacists the trump campaign decided remove all doubt and plausible deniability by flat our running ads with Nazi symbols.

Facebook removed trump campaign’s Nazi symbol ads:

Leaked document makes trump’s Nazi symbol use look even worse:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions ... ook-worse/

According to this article, they ran 88 versions of the ad - numerology referring to Hitler as “H,” is the 8th letter of the alphabet and “HH,” (or 88) stands for “Heil Hitler.”

It's not the first time this sort of thing has happened, this one was in 2015.

8O

Well that is also disgusting.

Absolutely insane that a country who helped defeat the Nazis is embracing their revival.

I don’t know how anyone at all can defend this. Even a trump supporter. They like his closed borders against Mexican migrants and tough talk on trade with China so they’re willing to just accept a heavy dash of Nazism along with it? Like wtf? So bizarre!

Well, they're still not willing to openly embrace it. That's why they're still insisting ANTIFA are actually fascists instead of countering that they're just ANTICOM or otherwise owning that the same guys who cosplay as Nazis at rallies are the most legitimate successors to the original Nazis and not the people who promote punching literal modern brownshirts.

Antifa doesn't use the symbol Nazis used in death camps for liberals and socialists. Can you cite a source supporting your claims that ANTIFA has used the red triangle? And not a right wing source one attempting to justify Trump's use, I mean one prior to Trump's use.

ANTIFA uses this symbol:

PS: Sane people know the guys who cosplay as brownshirts are Nazis, and they're the guys you view as allies Sly. Not the guys who show up to protect other left-wing protesters from those guys.

:lol:

The one single example cited by the trump campaign of Antifa using a red triangle as a logo is on some random Spanish guy’s t-shirt design.. because it’s not a symbol associated with Antifa. It’s a Nazi symbol and the trump campaign knows it. Then they doubled down with the “88,” numerology just to make sure everyone knows they’re Nazis.

Nazis were fascists. Antifa is anti fascist. Antifa are not Nazis. They’re the polar opposite. Wtf? :?

Tell thst to Apple and Facebook.
I believe antifa gave up trying to “reclaim” it.

What happen is nothing kore then a mistake. Trumps staff are only humans. I’d bet most teens wouldn’t know what that symbol is. Most young people don’t know much about ww2 or the holocaust other then hitler killed a lot of people.
Most people aren’t into history like me. Most people didn’t have a ww2 survivor come give presentation of the Holocaust for 2 weeks to their class.
It think it’s sad that USA students can’t go visit the death camp like European students get to. Though videos of smiling laughing young adults tell me even those who go don’t get it.
I don’t think I’d be doing anything but crying if I went there. Certainly wouldn’t take selfies in the gas chamber where thousands of people were murdered.

The guy who gave the presentation was worried once he and others are gone it will be forgotten and seen as some non important distant thing. And I think he was right.
People will remember hitler as a meme for evil a thing to call your political opponents but they don’t remember the victims, symbols or events.

Death camps are not Disney land.

You still haven't substantiated the claim that antifa ever attempted to 'reclaim it'. Are you able to?

You can’t possibly be serious. I’d bet there’s about a 0% chance you actually believe this and about a 100% chance you’re simply excusing the trump campaign for using Nazi symbols and numerology to appeal to American neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

There is literally NO way that the trump campaign didn’t know this was a Nazi symbol OR that “88,” is Nazi numerology. None. Zero. Whether you want to acknowledge it or not, these people are not stupid and knew EXACTLY what they were communicating and did it intentionally. This was no mistake.

the most dissocial part of all this is that they refuse to just come clean about it to the rest of us, only within their own tribe. the rest of us are to continually be lied to.

in their "minds" they thought they could slip this past us, they thought we didn't know what they were saying.
