Neo-nazis unfurl swastika flag at rally outside South Dakota Capitol

Source: The Independent (UK)

A neo-Nazi group displayed a Nazi flag on the steps of South Dakota’s state capitol building as the group of extremists attempted to hold a rally on Saturday.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem condemned the rally, which was held just two days after the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

“Today, Nazis attempted to rally at the SD Capitol without a permit and were escorted away by Highway Patrol officers. Nazis are not welcome here in South Dakota.” she wrote on her personal X account.

“We stand on the shoulders of generations of Americans who have fought for the Freedom of all — here and abroad. We stand for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We reject all hatred and Nazis. Full stop."

Out of curiosity, does the "event photographer" dressed in the same as the "Blood Tribe" count as a "journalist"?

I am surprised Noem condemned them. Maybe miffed she wasn't invited to address the "crowd"

This is one of them. What is particularly galling is these little pukes doing this right after D-Day for attention.

Sic semper tyrannis, though.

Real tyrants like Hitler - not statesmen like Lincoln, as many RW southerners think the phrase should refer to.

Noem actually condemned the fascists’ rally? Seriously, I’m surprised that she did. Since she can’t come right out and hug them tight, I would have expected her not to say anything about half her voters (and the GOPQ’s voter base).

But really, who is she kidding?

If Trump started wearing a swastika tomorrow, she'd invite those fucks to the Governor's mansion the next day.

Probably aren't aware of the full WW2 inferences of the symbol or the original Sanskrit source.

While the incident apparently did happen, the picture is incorrect. I have been to Pierre many times and there is no big hills anywhere around (only Missouri River breaks with high prairie grass) . Also, the pix appears to be of a march somewhere else. Appalachia perhaps. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of ridiculous low info assholes here in SD.
