Have intellectual and moral integrity declined to a point in America where people will say anything, no matter how absurd, as long as it’s “woke”? A good indication the answer is “yes” is the June 6 edition of The 11th Hour with Brian Williams, on which the following words were heard:
“Who is Antifa? They stormed the beaches of Normandy, parachuted into the French countryside, and gave their lives to face down and fight back against fascism.”
Got that? Our fathers and grandfathers who lost limb and sometimes life in WWII were just like the puerile, pasty-faced, privileged children who wear masks as they commit crimes, riot, and destroy property in the name of overthrowing our entire American system.
The Antifa apologia the fabulist Williams gave air time to was courtesy of the quite odious anti-Trump group the Lincoln Project; it was in a video the latter created and that Williams played at his show’s conclusion. It was so shocking that American Thinker editor-in-chief Thomas Lifson said he was “speechless” while the Right Scoop’s Fred T similar stated, “I don’t know if I have the words to express to you my horror and disgust at seeing this clip.”
