News Item: Soldiers of Odin, dubbed 'extreme anti-refugee group,' patrol Edmonton streets

Subject

Misappropriation / White Supremacy

Description

This is a news article from the CBC website about the activities of an extreme anti-refugee group dubbed the 'soldiers of Odin'. Their logo is a viking (with horned helmet) with a Canadian flag as a beard. Organisations such as this are a reminder that the historical misuse of pseudo-viking imagery by far right groups (including in Nazi Germany) to express notions of racial exclusion and white supremacy continues today.
