Weatherman canned after endorsing characterization of gun-toting, right-wing, pandemic skeptics as ‘Nazi sympathizers’ and ‘miscreants’

Kare 11 announced Friday that Sven Sundgaard was no longer with the network following an entry on his Facebook page, where he reposted the words of Rabbi Michael Adam Latz calling out demonstrators who have staged rallies in cities including Minnesota, in which those activists demand their states gets back to business in the throes of a pandemic.

A Minnesota weatherman was cut loose after using his social media account to promote the characterization of protesters demanding to reopen the state ASAP as “White nationalist Nazi sympathizer gun fetishist miscreants.”
That controversial posting further warned “Armed extremists” should not be taken lightly.
KARE-11 announced Friday that Sven Sundgaard was no longer with the network following an entry on his Facebook page, where he reposted the words of Rabbi Michael Adam Latz calling out demonstrators who have staged rallies in places including Minnesota, in which those activists demand their states gets back to business in the throes of a pandemic.
The comments were removed from Sundgaard’s Facebook page, but not before Alpha News in Minnesota took a screenshot.
KARE 11 released a statement on Facebook Friday stating that “Due to continued violations of KARE11′s news ethics and other policies, we have made the decision to part ways with Sven Sundgaard.”
Sundergaard joined the network in March 2006, according to a bio that has been removed from the news outlet’s website.
Rallies like the ones Latz references in Minnesota have popped up across the nation in recent weeks as health officials warn the COVID-19 pandemic, which has infected more than a million people in the U.S. and taken more American lives than the war in Vietnam, will continue to present a health crisis if effective safety measures currently in place are abandoned.
President Trump tweeted his support to “Liberate Minnesota” on April 17.
His suggestion was met with resistance on Twitter, where video of protests in front of the governor’s mansion were posted.
More than 5,000 coronavirus infections have been confirmed in Minnesota, resulting in 371 deaths. The state’s former governor, professional wrestler Jesse “The Body” Ventura, said this week that he’s considering running for president.
