Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven spoke out against the rise of neo-nazi movements and urged people to not start “tolerating the unacceptable.”
Löfven’s comments come after Donald Trump decided not to condemn the white supremacists rally in Charlottesville.
According to Bloomberg, Löfven said during a speech in Eskilstuna, “It may be easy to try to laugh away these angry men with big words, small hearts and closed fists,” citing recent rallies by “Nazi groups, the Ku Klux Klan and white power protesters in Charlottesville.”
“But all fascist movements were small when they were founded and were able to quickly gain followers during difficult times.”
Another white supremacists rally was supposed to take place in Berlin on Sunday, but the 500 neo-Nazis were stopped by an estimated 1,000 counter-protesters, AP reported.
