Actor Don Cheadle is triggered by an eagle lapel pin; will they be taking that away next?

Nazis! Nazis everywhere!

Actor Don Cheadle was outraged on Friday when he caught what he, presumably, believed was a Nazi symbol on the lapel of CNN guest Ed Martin.

“Hey, @CNN … Anybody wanna talk about my man’s lovely brooch on his lapel? Anybody minding the store. #WTAF?!?”he wrote on Twitter with a clip of Martin talking on CNN.

His followers quickly took their cue and began calling out the “Nazi” symbol.

Actually no it isn’t.

It’s a pin that represents the Eagle Forum. A conservative group founded by Phyllis Schlafly of which, Martin’s bio says, he was the “hand-picked successor.”

Literally minutes of research would have assuaged Cheadle’s fears.

A look at the two Eagles side by side shows that they look nothing alike.

Many people mocked Cheadle and his followers for assuming the pin has Nazi origins.

Yes he does. But he is a liberal so it probably isn’t coming.
