White supremacist appears to urinate on an Israeli flag as nationalist group interrupts LGBT celebration in Detroit
Detroit, MI – White supremacists caused outrage among the LGBT community when one of them appeared to urinate on an Israeli flag and gave Nazi salutes during a Pride event in Detroit.
The National Socialist Movement (NSM) interrupted the family-friendly event on Saturday, holding placards with their slogan and swastika flags. The white nationalist group is one of the largest neo-Nazi organizations in the United States and is known for anti-Jewish and racist protests. Images show LGBT supporters attempting to block them joining the event. Police are seen in the vicinity.
Today at Motor City Pride, a friendly LGBT+ event, Detroit PD escorted Nazi's in full uniform outside of the entrance to the festival. Detroit PD bruised those that tried to intervene (see below) and allowed this to happen. pic.twitter.com/lDcbemzhek— marc (@marcklock) June 9, 2019
