Bartender explains why he swiftly kicks out Nazis even if they're 'not bothering anyone'

Back in 2017, when white supremacist Richard Spencer was socked in the face by someone wearing all black at Trump's inauguration, it launched an online debate, "Is it OK to punch a Nazi?"

The essential nature of the debate was whether it was acceptable for people to act violently towards someone with repugnant reviews, even if they were being peaceful. Some suggested people should confront them peacefully by engaging in a debate or at least make them feel uncomfortable being Nazi in public.

Others believed that it is totally fine to punch a Nazi.

2. A dude with SS emblem and swastika tattoo's showed up at a blood drive and I got rid of him.

I registered donors at the blood drives. this was at a grocery store at Grangeville, Idaho. Yup. Just as unsurprising as you'd think. I would have flat out told him he was refused because of the tattoo's, but he told me he hadn't eaten all day and it was right before shut-down time.

The next time we were there, a couple recruiters from our HQ were there. I warned them about him and gave them a good description. So what happened when he showed up? One of the dumbshits sent him in anyway! And this time, he was wearing a replica German army camo jacket! I'm not making this up. I doubt the kid recruiter really recognized the jacket for what it was. It didn't have obvious Nazi insignia on it. I called a supervisor at the HQ and told her I was booting the guy, and if I didn't do it, our lead on the bus would. She agreed totally.

3. Did they get paid to donate? Is that why he came back?

4. Blood centers can't pay donors. Plasma centers do, but that plasma is not transfused to patients.

He came back because he thought the only reason he was turned away was the empty stomach thing. It's not like when they tell you to fast before getting tubes drawn for blood work. If you don't eat before donating that much more blood, it can cause a severe reaction. That's usually what went on if you hear about people passing out and or puking.

6. I'm Jewish and don't get it.

His blood is blood.

Do you think the recipient will suddenly start marching around in leather boots?

Or is it a drug/meth thing?
