An alt-righter protests Minneapolis' MayDay parade. It does not go well [VIDEO]

May Day is an ancient Northern European spring festival that evolved into an honor for working people here in America. But lately it’s gathered another meaning for the alt-right: It’s a day to protest lefties, and to celebrate a dominantly white culture from centuries past.

Never mind that said culture was one of abject misery for most. Historical scholarship is not a conservative strong suit.

So it was only fitting that a protester showed up at Minneapolis’ MayDay parade, which ran through the Phillips and Powderhorn Park neighborhoods. His was a one-man procession, featuring a Make America Great Again hat and the flying of the Kekistan flag.

“I saw him earlier in the day and he was flying the flag,” says Alexander Just. “I didn’t pay much attention to him. I just thought it was weird.”

Then he heard yelling, a confrontation. A photographer by trade, Just began to videotape.

The footage shows a lone man, seemingly trapped between anger and fear. A crowd surrounds him, with some calling him a “Nazi.”

“He wants people genocided!” one man repeatedly shouts.

Others urge peace and attempt to calm. But it isn’t easy to tame emotions when people believe a Nazi’s in their midst.

The protester tucks his MAGA hat into his jacket and disassembles his flag pole, brandishing the pipes in the international signal for go-time. “We can either talk or we can fight,” he announces to his tormentors. Then he draws a line in the sand.




Geezus, the nut jobs just can't keep to themselves.

1. Good for these people to protest this nazi bully and idiot and what he stands for. I know that...

we all have the right to peacefully assemble and so forth, but to slap parade goers in the face with his bigotry and hatred in a May Day Parade? Come on now, be realistic and respect the rights of others.

2. Exactly!

Those guys protesting that alt-right loser had just as much right to say what they did.

3. "When I hear the word culture, I reach for my gun"

When the Nazis achieved power in 1933, Hanns Johst wrote the play Schlageter, an expression of Nazi ideology which was performed on Hitler's 44th birthday, 20 April 1933, to celebrate his victory. It was a heroic biography of the proto-Nazi martyr Albert Leo Schlageter. The famous line "When I hear the word culture, I reach for my gun", often associated with Nazi leaders, derives from this play. The actual line in the play is, however, slightly different: "Wenn ich Kultur höre ... entsichere ich meine Browning!" "When I hear 'Culture'... I release the safety catch on my Browning!" (Act 1, Scene 1)
