A man wearing a Nazi armband in downtown Seattle got punched out after throwing a banana and yelling bonkers slogans at passersby.
Sean Patrick Duff told the newspaper he encountered the man while walking to see “Baby Driver.”
The unidentified man was “belligerent” and yelling “Alex Jones-style,” and a small crowd gathered, according to Duff.
A white bystander approached the man and told him to “get the f*ck out of our city,” and the neo-Nazi called the man an “ape and threw a banana at him,” Duff said.
Another man ran across the street at that point and punched the neo-Nazi in the jaw, knocking him unconscious.
Duff admits he was very high on marijuana during the incident, so he did not get involved, but said he was hoping someone would punch the neo-Nazi.
“Everyone was so joyous,” Duff said. “It was like a bonding for the community.”
He said a few people came forward to help the unconscious man, but he said they backed off when another bystander pointed out he was “Nazi trash.”
“Nobody wanted to help him,” Duff told the newspaper.
The crowd dispersed when police arrived, and officers said the man declined to provide information about the incident and left after removing his swastika armband.

At a time when a generation of war has stressed military families and sapped the treasury?" the newspaper asked. "The Des Moines Register editorial board endorses Elizabeth Warren in the 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses as the best leader for these times."
Lev Parnas’s attorney hilariously trolls Mitch McConnell in bid for witnesses during impeachment trial
The attorney for Lev Parnas trolled Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Saturday in a bid for a "fair" impeachment trial.
Attorney Joseph Bondy posted to Twitter a video mashing together the audio of Trump meeting with Parnas and Igor Fruman along with the music from Rick Astley's 1987 song "Never Gonna Give You Up."
Posting the song as an online prank, known as rickrolling, dates back to at least 2007.
Included with the video was a message to McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Bondy urged the two to "vote with integrity and conscience."
President Xi Jinping warns China’s coronavirus situation is ‘grave’ due to ‘accelerating spread’ of the virus
President Xi Jinping warned Saturday that China faced a "grave situation" as authorities raced to contain a virus that has killed 41 people and caused a drastic scale-back of Lunar New Year celebrations.
The world's most populous country, which is scrambling to contain the disease that has infected nearly 1,300 people and overwhelmed health facilities, is building a second field hospital and closing more travel routes.
After more countries reported cases, Xi said at a Communist Party leadership meeting on the disease that China was "faced with the grave situation of an accelerating spread of the new coronavirus" but that the country will "definitely be able to win the battle," according to state media.
