Man in car emblazoned with Nazi symbol plows into refugee demo in Sweden

A man suspected of having neo-Nazi links has confessed to driving his car into a crowd of rejected Iraqi asylum seekers who were protesting against their deportation in the Swedish city of Malmo. Police have opened a hate crime investigation.

The man, 22, whose identity has not been revealed, admitted that he had driven his car into the crowd of asylum seekers, who rallied outside the Swedish Migration Agency office in Malmo on two occasions last weekend.

The perpetrator’s car had a Nazi symbol on it, police confirmed to local media. A video obtained by Swedish national public broadcaster SVT Nyheter shows the car with a Nazi eagle and swastika on its front.

    He was obviously a Lone Wolf with mental health issues.

    • And an obvious misunderstander of Nazism!

      • Literally Hitler

        The vast majority of Nazis are wonderful peace loving humanitarian cornerstones of society.

      The local nazi centre should hold a meet and greet for the community to combat misinformation and media stereotypes about nazis.

    Volvo. Reputedly safest car on the road. Provided you’re sitting in it.

    Inside job.
    Literally and probably factually.

      I thought the same thing – especially since he also had knives on him and only ran over the placards, not really aiming for the people. Also – the police released him after questioning…. without releasing a photo or the name of the suspect so I’m guessing it wasn’t Erik or Lukas. 😛

    A real ‘NAZI’ would not have used a Volvo.

    • He’s a Yuppie Nazi!

      At least it’s not a Ford Theatre!

    So… someone rams their car into a crowd of pedestrians then gets all stabby while yelling “Allah Akbar” and the authorities scratch their heads over motivation. One bird lover has an accident with an ancient religious symbol on the car and they assume it’s a Nazi.

    Is it just me or, looking at the video, the emblem is on the BACK of the car? Top notch reporting there. Fact checking at it’s best. This story will probably be swept under the rug really fast or start falling apart soon.

    Nazi? …coincidence…

    It’s a mental illness and we must look at the root-causes or what it is that muslims are doing to provoke a peaceful man to snap and do a criminal act.
