Hattip to commenter Nate Winchester.
So here’s the thing: In my opposition to the ugly and evil policies of the Trump Administration and its conservative Christian supporters, my approach has been strongly influenced–ironically–not by “liberalism” as my critics always assume, but by conservatism, and particularly my respect for my Dad and what he endured fighting Nazis in World War II.

Go here to read the rest. Leaving aside that it is a completely insane analogy, Shea and other Leftists would regard the vast majority of American troops who fought in World War II as being Nazis for the views they held on race, sex, homosexuality, nationalism, etc. Invoking the past to support political actions of today is always fraught with peril, but I doubt if Shea sees this, as history has never been his strong suit.
