Why white nationalists are misappropriating Red Wings logo

Why white nationalists are misappropriating Red Wings logo

One marching group of protesters, perhaps from the Michigan-based white nationalist group called Detroit Right Wings, which uses a logo similar to that of the Red Wings, was spotted touting the Detroit trademark at the rally by HuffPost's Andy Campbell.

Their responses may include pursuing legal action regarding "the disturbing demonstration".

Multiple white nationalists carrying tiki torches were at the University of Virginia for the rally that continued on Saturday morning.

The Detroit Right Wings are part of the Identitarian movement, which began in Europe but has spread across the Atlantic Ocean in recent years. This specific use is directly contrary to the value of inclusiveness that our League prioritizes and champions.

The logo has been altered slightly in the center, and the people holding the signs belong to a group from MI called "The Detroit Right Wings". The GoFundMe raising resulted in only $328 from four total donations.

On Saturday, fights erupted and a few people were injured after a white supremacists group and counter protesters clashed in Charlottesville, Virginia, forcing local police and Gov. Terry McAuliffe to declare a state of emergency.
