Neo-Nazis Set Swastika Ablaze After Georgia Rally

This weekend, Neo-Nazis gathered for a march in Newnan, Georgia. The rally was organized by the National Socialist Movement (NSM), one of the largest white supremacist groups in the country. 

Hundreds of police were dispatched to the town to keep anti-racist protesters and neo-Nazis separated. The event was branded similarly to the infamous NSM-organized violent “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville that took place a year ago. Newnan residents were visibly angered that a hate group was allowed by the city of Newnan to march through their streets.

After the rally, Neo-Nazi’s burned an enormous swastika in Draketown, a town 50 miles outside of Newnan. Members of the NSM gave the Nazi salute and shouted Sieg Heil as the Swastika Burned #NoNaziNewnan
