I saw this “Antifa” (Anti-Fascist) symbol on this painting of a cow in Washington, D.C.
As a child of Holocaust survivors, I certainly understand and can even sympathize with the view of the anti-fascist movement — certainly, we should all unequivocally appreciate, love, and want to protect freedom and human rights!
However, I think throwing around labels like fascist, perhaps where it is more about political disagreements doesn’t help to identify the really bad actors out there in the world and what they can and even would like to do to harm all of us.
Anyway, I am pretty sure that this cow is no fascist.
I would also like to say that the red and black with this symbol here is way too close to looking like how the genocidal Nazi’s themselves portrayed the dreaded and infamous swastika in red and black.
It would be great if we use symbols and labels carefully, and let the cows go back to being cows. ;-)
