  1. WHY ARE they using The Detroit red wings logo? Just don't come to DETROIT with that bullshit… I PROMISE you, we will SHUT THAT SHIT DOWN!!!!

  2. I never seen so much bullshit in my life Geroge Soros paying lot of over time there they could took down the statue down in the middle of the night when everyones a sleep or in the middle of winter and it's to cold to protest why doit on a hot summer day cost millions of dollars of damage no but don't asks these simple questions??????????

  3. If you had a Right Wings logo here you would be dead. Even if you live in Detroit and don't like Hockey this logo is our city just like the old English d

  4. Trump is talking right in his speeches about this and isn't trying to say its ok like obama. Obama is to blame for this racial tension were having!

  5. It is no coincidence that the Red Wings logo is used as a symbol of hate. Michigan has always been a racist place. Tiny testicle terrorists aka angry and ignorant white males have fallen down in life. These white males want a handout for just being white. Also when you look at the Trump administration and how it has hate members like Bannon within it, it's no wonder Trump did not go hard on yesterday's death by white male terrorists in VA. The Illitch's and Trump says one thing and do another. Watch their actions far more than listening to their words.
