PIERRE, S.D. (KELO) – A group of people waving the Nazi flag were seen attempting to protest at the state Capitol in Pierre today. According to a press release sent by the Department of Public Safety, the group tried to march at the state capitol this afternoon before South Dakota Highway Patrol asked them to leave. Officials say the group did not have a permit to protest on the premises.

In response – Governor Kristi Noem said on X, “We just celebrated the 80th commemoration of D-Day, when the take-back of Europe from Freedom-hating Nazis began. Today, Nazis attempted to rally at the SD Capitol without a permit and were escorted away by Highway Patrol officers. Nazis are not welcome here in South Dakota. We stand on the shoulders of generations of Americans who have fought for the Freedom of all — here and abroad. We stand for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We reject all hatred and Nazis. Full stop.”U.S. Representative Dusty Johnson also commented on X saying,” This is atrocious.”

State Representative Will Mortenson commented on X, “Hearing reports about Nazis marching in Pierre. I don’t know that rock they crawled out from under, but they are not welcome here.”
