We checked back in our archives thinking NBC News had already run this story, but the previous piece appeared in USA TODAY. As we said then, USA TODAY managed to “obtain” video from a person stopped at a red light, but they didn’t have any reporters stationed nearby who could interview any of these protesters to see what they wanted … and ask Gov. Ron DeSantis why he hasn’t done anything about it.
A group of about 15 people wearing clothing and bearing flags emblazoned with Nazi insignia demonstrated outside the entrance to the Disney Springs shopping center, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Office. https://t.co/BOGUJutrec

Julianne McShane asked the ADL to help her make sense of it all:
Groups of neo-Nazis and white supremacists spread antisemitic, white supremacist and anti-LGBTQ messages outside Disney World and in the nearby Orlando, Florida, area Saturday in the latest examples of rising antisemitism in the U.S., officials said.
About 15 people wearing clothing and bearing flags emblazoned with Nazi insignia demonstrated outside the entrance to the Disney Springs shopping center, said the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, which said deputies were dispatched around 10:40 a.m.
The extremists dispersed after about two hours, and no one was arrested, the sheriff’s office said.

Divide 15 by 240,000,000 adults and let me know how we’re looking.

Just a couple of days ago we reported on a group of Nazis in Florida who say they support Joe Biden and his Ukraine policy.
Nazis that support Biden.
Tell the whole story, NBC.

I am disgusted and condemn these Biden supporters.
— Dave Roetman (@DaveRoetman) September 5, 2023

And here you guys are, promoting this group and giving them visibility.

Last time we saw this story the Nazis were flying DeSantis 2024 flags. We guess they’ve moved on to Biden.
