United Auto Workers president Shawn Fain compared Israel to fascist nations of World War II in a tweet celebrating the union’s call for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza after Hamas violated a seven-day truce.

The UAW is one of the largest unions to join left-wing calls for a ceasefire.

Mancilla said that the UAW “opposed fascism in World War II, we ended up opposing the Vietnam War, we opposed apartheid South Africa, and we mobilized the resources in the entire labor movement to join us in that fight.” (Trending: Disgraced Democrat Sued For Sexual Assault)

He said that the UAW was calling for “an immediate, permanent ceasefire … so that we can get to the work of building a lasting peace, building social justice, and building a community, a global community of solidarity. … to ensure that workers and oppressed people and poor people across the world are on the path to winning the justice that they so deserve.”

The union’s regional director emphasized the need for social justice and a global community of solidarity.

The comparison of Israel to the Nazis has been criticized as a form of antisemitism and Holocaust denial.

The UAW did not issue a statement condemning the Hamas terror attack on Israel.

The union is a political ally of President Joe Biden and has a significant number of workers and retired members.

A UAW regional director, Brandon Mancilla, said that “the labor movement would not be able to achieve the transformative goals it has for social justice, for worker justice, for economic justice, if it turned a blind eye to what was happening across the world.”
