Red Wings Condemn Use of Logo at White Nationalist Rally

On Saturday morning, several marchers were seen carrying the Detroit Red Wings logo, an incongruous symbol among the more blatant displays of Nazism.

That's because a white nationalist group called the Detroit Right Wings, members of which made the trip to Charlottesville, adopted the logo as their own.

The group has been marching with the Red Wings logo and displays it on their YouTube channel, which has a total of 16 subscribers. "We are exploring every possible legal action as it pertains to the misuse of our logo in this disturbing demonstration". The team adds that it believes hockey is for everyone and celebrates the diversity of its fan base and the country. It is not yet evident whether that group was in attendance in Charlottesville.

A right-wing blogger said he planned the "pro-white" rally to protest Charlottesville's decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from a city park, according to The Associated Press.

Scores of white nationalists with torches marched, chanted racial slurs and attacked counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Va. last night.
