Members of a Virginia county council got into it with an EMT who bragged about “terrorizing” a black child with a needle on his neo-Nazi podcast.
Roanoke’s WSLS reported that Patrick County Council members grilled EMT Alex McNabb, a co-host of the Daily Shoah podcast (“shoah” is the Hebrew term for “holocaust”) after residents became fearful.
Council Chairman Lock Boyce got into a shouting match with McNabb over a story told on the podcast in which the EMT (who went by the pseudonym “Dr. Narcan”) purposefully stabbed a black child with a needle.
“Dr. Narcan enjoyed great, immense satisfaction as he terrorized this youngster with a needle,” the podcast narration reported, “and stabbed him thusly in the arm with a large-gauge IV catheter.”
“Did you say that?” Boyce asked McNabb, raising his voice. “Did you make that up, do you think that’s funny?”
“I think it’s funny,” the EMT responded, later adding that his “audience” agreed.
The chairman told McNabb that “to even have a thought like that is repugnant.”
“You are talking about torturing children who are in your care,” Boyce said.
WSLS reported that McNabb claimed “Dr. Narcan” is a character and the scenes he illustrated were satirical. He went on to characterize the backlash against his involvement in the neo-Nazi podcast as a free speech issue.
“This is about free speech,” the now-suspended EMT said, “which is under assault in this country.”
McNabb was outed as a Daily Shoah co-host earlier in December by The Huffington Post, and told the website for the report that he is not a racist and doesn’t discriminate against patients based on race.
WSLS noted, however, that “Dr. Narcan” referred to black patients as “gorillas” and used racial slurs to describe them and in 2016 joked about a primarily-black apartment complex that he frequented at work.
“The complex is noted for large groups of people from all over Africa and West Africa — funny how they self-segregate,” McNabb said on the podcast. “It’s jokingly referred to as ‘Ebola Alley’ by the crew that regularly works there — so many sick people coming in and out of there.”
