Army commends composed soldiers for their restraint against neo-Nazi in Poland
The US military today commends a group of young US soldiers for exercising restraint while being verbally harassed by a racist neo-Nazi at a shopping center in Poland.
A video of the incident went viral this week and it is believed that notorious anti-Semite and racist Jon Minadeo Jr. harasses the young men.
He told one of the soldiers, who is black, to “stay away from white women,” used the N-word and repeated anti-Semitic and homophobic statements.
The soldiers have not been identified. They ignored him and walked away, despite growing increasingly frustrated, and were filmed calming each other down at times.
In a statement to DailyMail.com on Friday, a US military spokesman praised their response.
The U.S. military expects all soldiers to adhere to Army values, while on duty and off duty. We commend all soldiers who show discipline and restraint when confronted with provocative behavior,” said Lieutenant Colonel Terence Kelley.
Just months ago, 39-year-old Minadeo was arrested in Poland for wearing a swastika necklace and posing with vulgar banners taunting Jewish leaders outside the front gates of Auschwitz. During World War II, Auschwitz functioned as a concentration camp where an estimated 1.1 million people were exterminated.
The man first gets the soldiers’ attention by asking “you Americans” in the now-viral video
After the man filming said “stay away from those white women” to the black soldier, one of his friends comforted him by patting him on the back and continuing to move him toward the exit.
One of the soldiers seemed frustrated after the man said, “You are now in a white country. We worship n*****s and Mexicans don’t’
During Minadeo’s gruesome Auschwitz stunt, he held up a sign that read ‘Greenblatt suck 6 million d***s’. Both signs in the photo refer to Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, who has led campaigns against anti-Semitism in the US
Handcuffed and Arrested Today in Poland for (((Hate Speech))) Relating to Aushwitz [sic],” Minadeo wrote in a separate Gab post. “Just released tonight with a fine and my chains and computer temporarily confiscated. Life is good! You can’t stop me Jews! #HandsomeTruth.’
Minadeo, who heads an anti-Semitic network called The Goyim Defense League, had previously posted a video showing him verbally assaulting a South Asian man near the Atrium Reduta Shopping Center in Warsaw.
A video, which surfaced on YouTuber Jameson’s Travels account and on Twitter, has been credited to Minadeo. He posted a link to Jameson’s Travels video on Gab, an American alt-tech microblogging and social networking service known for its far-right user base.
“I’m from America,” says Minadeo. And in America… there are too many of you here. So why are you in Poland? Do you think you can just invade Poland? Why don’t you go back to your own country?’
He continues to harass the man, who tries to ignore him: ‘Why don’t you go back to your own country? Why don’t you go back to your own country? Why are you here? Why are you here?
‘Why don’t you go back to India? Are you from India? Sir, just answer. I just want to know. I can film you… this is my country. I am European and Europeans want to know why you think you have the right to invade our country.’
When the man asks Minadeo to stop filming, he accuses the man of “f*****g up Europe,” calls him a “parasite,” and tells him to leave “my country.”
“This is my country,” Minadeo claims. ‘I am European. Why do you come to the land of the white man? You are committing genocide against our race… You are an invader. Go home, intruder. We don’t want you in Europe… Poland for Polish only.’
It is unclear whether Minadeo is behind the new images – which show the American soldiers being abused.
In the new footage, which went viral on social media this week, four men in army uniforms carrying the American flag showed clear restraint after being accosted by the taunting man.
The person filming asked the group if they are in Poland spreading the “George Floyd culture,” and what they think of the US Secretary of Health as a “f***ing t****y.”
He then hurls abuse at the black soldier in the group, warning him to “stay away from those white women,” and that “miscegenation used to be a crime in your country.”
The man behind the camera – who bizarrely has an American accent – continues by saying ‘you’re in a white country now, we worship n*****s and don’t worship Mexicans’.
The video, which was thrown onto social media, quickly sparked outrage — with over a million viewers.
In the two and a half minute video, the man repeatedly antagonizes and lures the American soldiers into responding, using targeted language and interrogation tactics.
The clip begins with the man approaching the four soldiers and asking “you Americans?” to which the men answer ‘yes’.

He then immediately asks the group ‘you guys here to spread sodomy or what? Isn’t that what America’s most important export is?’
The group initially laughed at the abuse – they immediately turned their backs on the persistent man filming them.
The person filming, who is not in the footage, follows up on his initial sodomy question and says “what is it, is it George Floyd culture or is it sodomy,” referring to the “number one export” he mentioned earlier.
He later asked the group “are you here to spread ‘the anal’ before saying ‘isn’t that what you are learning in your training?”
As the soldiers continue to walk away, the man again tries to get them to react from a different angle.
He asks “what do you think about it making your health secretary so crazy?”
The unidentified man appears to have been referring to transgender US Secretary of Health Rachel Leland Levine.
California hate monger Jon Minadeo Jr denounced this South Asian man over four minutes on video, calling him a ‘parasite’ and demanding he leave ‘my country’
“How about defending a country that has no meaning for citizenship?” he then asks. “Every Mexican who crosses the border is literally one of you.”
The men seem to be talking to each other, walking in pairs and still ignoring the filming man.
As the group approaches the exit of the building, the man decides to try another approach by making a racist remark to the lone black member of the group.
‘Keep Poland white’, you hear the man say, but he gets no answer.
“Stay away from those white women. Hey, stay away from those white women.”
The soldier turns for a moment before his friend puts his hand on his back, comforts him and leads him to the exit.
The man then continues to try to challenge him, saying that ‘miscegenation used to be a crime in your country’.
Miscegenation is determined as the “crossing of people considered to be members of different races.”
In a reply tweet with a second video, the man filming yells at the group, “You’re in a white country now, we worship n****** and Mexicans don’t.”
At that moment, the man who had walked with the black soldier began to turn around, looking frustrated at his statements.
The black soldier then comforts him back, petting him and pushing him away.
The video ends with the unidentified cameraman yelling ‘you’re not welcome here guys’ as the men leave him behind.
Twitter users praised the soldiers for their restraint. One user said, “To the American soldiers, I couldn’t be more proud of you if you were my own sons.
“You walked with dignity and courage. Thank you very much for your service and your honor. You make the United States proud every day.”
Another said, “That just pissed me off. He has nothing better to do than be racist.
“He decided to pick a fight with the most important people of our country. He was salty from the start when they ignored him, so he started to get even more racist.”
