‘Everyone was so joyous’: Witnesses cheered white supremacist punched out for ranting ‘Alex Jones-style’

Published

A man wearing a Nazi armband in downtown Seattle got punched out after throwing a banana and yelling bonkers slogans at passersby.

Witnesses provided more information to The Stranger about the Sunday afternoon incident, which was widely reported the following day.

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.

Joe Biden says he won’t stand in the way of a possible prosecution of Trump

Published

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told NPR on Thursday that while he was unsure if it was "good for democracy," if elected he would not stand in the way of a hypothetical Justice Department prosecution of President Donald Trump for crimes committed in office.

"Look, the Justice Department is not the president's private law firm," the former vice president said. "The attorney general is not the president's private lawyer. I will not interfere with the Justice Department's judgment of whether or not they think they should pursue the prosecution of anyone that they think has violated the law."
