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.

OMG did they not even see it? He may as well be wearing a Nazi armband!

For those not familiar, it is the same eagle that the nazi party used to top their swastika marching flag poles (i.e. like Roman Army), /1

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.
It is an Eagle Forum pin. Has Nothing to do with Nazis. pic.twitter.com/eQSGa0hHKm

Come on man this is not productive. It’s not a nazi eagle.

“Ermahgerd, I can’t tell the difference between these eagle pins. Must be a Nazi symbol!”
That is EXACTLY how stupid this argument is. pic.twitter.com/q8mePeSQ9J

Shame on you Don Cheadle. You owe this man an apology for attempting to brand him a nazi. You’re becoming part of the hate.

Yes he does. But he is a liberal so it probably isn’t coming.
This isn’t helpful, Don. Not everything is Nazi paraphernalia.

To you & all the bobble heads hallucinating Nazi imagery, I remind you the eagle has been OUR national symbol all along. Get a grip.
