A man identified as a white supremacist by the Anti-Defamation League was removed from a Sanders campaign rally in Phoenix on Thursday after unveiling a flag with a swastika and shouting obscenities and other slurs.

Sanders said after the fact that "whoever it was, I think they’re a little outnumbered tonight.”

The Vermont senator is the son of Polish immigrants who fled the Holocaust in Europe.

“Good people, regardless of how they vote, should call this out in no uncertain terms,” Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt told NBC News.

Mike Casca, a spokesman for the Sanders campaign, told The Hill on Friday that "the senator is aware of the flag with the swastika on it and is disturbed by it."
