Operation Overlord... or the largest Antifa operation with operation Bagration.*winks*
Oh US and Allies, you used to be on the right side of history, what happened for you to fall to the Fascist side?
I know you're joking, but the US has always gone hand in hand with Fascism and racism, with a few winks and sly nods. Nazi Germany was heavily influenced by US Eugenics, sterilizing and sequestering of native populations and even the carbon monoxide gassing (delousing, not genocide, officially) the US did on Mexican immigrants in the 1920s. The only reason the US actually got involved in WW2 is because Japan attacked the US, arguably the US would have stayed neutral without that sequence of events. The Nazi party itself was fairly well represented across the US in the 30s, unfortunately. This is not to say the US didn't ultimately do the right thing in fighting against the Axis forces, but it's shades of gray, much like Russia's treaty with Nazi Germany (until Germany attacked Russia) that gets swept under the rug these days. Woodrow Wilson screened The Birth of a Nation in the white house, and of course this is the same country that had some states not only secede from the Union in an attempt to keep slavery, but also fight again less than 100 years later against desegregation. Then all the post WW2 shit like the Tuskegee syphillis experiment which continued until 1972, various experiments on US citizens of every color, FBI work against black leaders basically from 1950 until today, etc. etc. The USA has quite the checkered history, that seems to be constantly ignored. You probably know most of this, I just felt like bringing it up, because the nostalgia glasses people sometimes have to WW2 era America get on my nerves.
