Detroit Pride parade interrupted by neo-Nazi group

The Detroit Pride parade Saturday was reportedly interrupted by a group of white nationalists carrying weapons and performing Nazi salutes.

Fox News reported the arrival of members from the National Socialist Movement (NSM) sparked outrage at the annual march.

Images circulating on social media appeared to show a white nationalist ripping apart a rainbow flag and another urinating on an Israeli flag, according to Fox News.

The Southern Poverty Law Center classifies the NSM as one of the largest neo-Nazi organizations in the country.

The Motor City Pride Parade was expected to draw 40,000 attendees and is the largest Pride Month event in Michigan, according to the eventís Facebook page.

2. IMO, the best approach is to show who those people are

there are consequences: losing jobs, families, etc. However, as much as I donít agree with antifaís methods, they seem to be an effective deterrent to neo nazi as they work on a principle of pre-emptive strike (violence against neo nazi before they do violent acts). Goes on to show that free speech is not free from consequences and responsibility for the speech.

3. FFS I'd ask what is wrong with people

but clearly their parents did not raise them to respect other people and not to be Nazis.
