White Supremacists Stole the Detroit Red Wings Logo


A Michigan-based white supremacist organization attracted attention during the all-around awfulness that was yesterday by marching through Charlottesville bearing signs featuring the Detroit Red Wings logo.

The group, the Detroit Right Wings, appears to have co-opted the logo in service of a dumb pun. But there’s one awful difference between the NHL team’s logo and the white nationalists’- the spokes in the wheel on the Detroit Right Wings’ image have been altered to resemble the Nazi SS lightening bolt. Naturally, the Red Wings were quick to disavow-and threaten to sue- the neo-Nazis who’d co-opted their logo.
