CNN

Tess Asplund says she was angry and 'just did it'.



Picture courtesy CNN, David Lagerlof.

On May 1, Neo Nazis marched in Sweden. They are against non-whites immigrating there.

The photographer states:


"She was in real danger," said Lagerlöf. "She had nothing to stand up to those guys. The Nazis that she confronted, there were many of them, they were bigger, they are used to violence, and what she did was she went up to them, stood in front of them and stared at the leaders, stared them in the eyes, and it should have ended really bad. "


The photo has gone viral and was shared by J.K. Rowling who called Asplund 'magnificent'.

That takes a lot of courage. If one person can do that,in the face of danger, we all should be doing that.

More from Lagerlof:


"We live in a polarized society ... and lots of people feel like racist movements are gaining ground right now," Lagerlöf said.


He isn't kidding. I can see it here, sadly.

This is the kind of thing that can make a difference. It wasn't planned or staged. Both the woman and the photographer, who does not know her, were shocked at the response worldwide.

Spontaneous acts of humanity are powerful.

Well I'm boycotting CNN right now, so tell me... how did this dangerous situation end?

Where are the rest of Sweden? Just let these idiots do this and only one person opposes it. That's outrageous. I can guarantee if there was a neo nazi March in my city there would be a counter March that would make those little racists wet themselves.

It is just a general power salute against something. It's in Sweden, so it would probably not be what you think.

If she is giving the black power salute then she shouldn't

But,if she is giving the general power salute then I agree with her.

Just realized this is in Sweden. Failure on my part. I let my emotions cloud my judgment.

Why would you boycott CNN? It was reported in so many places, you would have to boycott much of the internet.

She was removed from a moving parade, gently. It is not me or any American saying it should have ended dangerously for her, it was a Swedish photographer. He was not employed by CNN.

I am not surprised those would show up that found fault with this. Again, sad.

Even if it was a 'Back power salute', why would she be 'no worse than them?' Black people in Sweden aren't having parades saying all white people are bad and should be removed. In fact, I don't see that anywhere.

Are these actual Nazis or just people against the destruction of their native culture?

Trust me it is here.

Louis Farrakhan and several BLM protesters have called for the murder of whites. On several occasions.

It seems when the calls for genocide come from that side,it isn't covered much and doesn't get much media attention.


ETA: I won't be replying anymore. I won't get into a debate about racism. Racism is racism no matter who it is by and who it is against.

I noted who the group is. They are a neo nazi group, yes.

wiki


The aim of Nordic Resistance Movement is to establish a Nordic National Socialist government by revolution or elections.[7] The organization says its fight will require bloodshed.[8] SMR praise Adolf Hitler[9] and Corneliu Codreanu in their publications.
