Norwegian parliamentary representative Heidi Greni (SP) shared an article from the website of the Nordic Resistance Movement, a neo-Nazi movement, on Facebook.
Greni shared the article in the comments section of newspaper Nationen’s debate article “Eating less meat is out of the question.”
The article referred to 18 studies that establish that meat-eaters have better mental health than vegans and vegetarians, newspaper VG writes.
Greni eventually deleted the post and distanced herself from the neo-Nazi organization the Nordic Resistance Movement. She said that she intended to share Dagsavisen’s article on the same topic.
“Of course, I distance myself from this organization completely and from all Nazism, homophobia, and racism. Of course, I deleted this post immediately when I was made aware of it, and I regret that I have contributed to spreading articles from an organization I absolutely do not support,” Greni wrote to the newspaper.
