A notorious American anti-Semite who was arrested at Auschwitz has been accused of abusing US troops and telling black soldiers to ‘stay away from white women’ in a video recorded at a shopping mall in Poland.
The video shows a man recording himself hurling racist and homophobic vitriol at a group of US soldiers who appear to show considerable restraint as they ignore their abuser.
The video, which appeared on YouTuber Jameson’s Travels account and on Twitter, has been credited to Jon Minadeo Junior.
Minadeo 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.
In the post, Minadeo wrote ‘BOOMER ALERT!!! WRAK AND GAS COMMENTS LETS F*****G GOOOOO!!!’
In a post on Twitter, internet trolls accused Minadeo of making the video, with many commenting that it was the ‘same guy’ from a video in which the founder of the American extremist group Goyim Defense League is seen abusing a man who looks to be South Asian.
One user said: ‘Apparently same guy, same way, same place attacked an Indian guy. Identified as California-based Jon Minadeo of Goyim TV.’

Minadeo is the founder of the American extremist group Goyim Defense League and is often seen posting racially motivated posts on the alt-right social media platform
Referring to Minadeo, another said: ‘Landing tentatively on this fine person like the gentlemen in the video. And no, I’m not worried about whether this is the wrong neo-Nazi. Laugh out loud.’
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 America proud every day.’
Another said: ‘It just pissed me off. He has nothing better to do than be a racist.
‘He decided to pick a fight with the most important people in our nation. He was salty from the start when they ignored him so he started being even more racist.’
The horrifying clip shows the moment four men wearing army gear with the American flag show restraint after being confronted by the man inside a Polish shopping centre.
The man first gets the soldiers’ attention by asking ‘you guys Americans’ in the now viral video
After the man filming said ‘stay away from the white women’ to the black soldier, one of his friends comforted him by patting him on the back and continuing to move him towards the exit
The man filming asks the group if they are in Poland to spread ‘George Floyd culture’ and what they think of the US health secretary being a ‘f***ing t****y’.
He then hurls abuse at the black soldier in the group, warning him to ‘stay away from the white women’ and that ‘miscegenation used to be a crime in your country’.
The man behind the camera – who bizarrely has an American accent – follows up by saying ‘you’re in a white country now, we don’t worship n*****s and Mexicans.’
The video, which has been slammed on social media, quickly sparked outrage – with more than a million people watching.
In the two-and-a-half-minute video, the man repeatedly tries to antagonize and bait the American soldiers into responding by using targeted language and questioning tactics.
The clip starts with the man approaching the four soldiers and asking ‘you guys Americans?’ to which the men reply ‘yes’.
Then he immediately asks the group of you here to spread sodomy or what? Isn’t that what America’s biggest export is?’
The group initially laughed off the abuse – immediately turning their backs on the tenacious man filming them.
The soldiers remain calm when confronted by the man in the mall
The men all wear US Army briggers with the American flag on them in the video
The person filming, who does not appear in the footage, follows his initial sodomy question saying “what is it, is it George Floyd culture or is it sodomy”, referring to the “number one export” he had previously mentioned .
He later asked the group ‘are you here to spread ‘the anal’ before saying ‘isn’t that what you learn 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 of your health secretary being af***ing t****y?’
The unidentified man appears to have been referring to transgender US Health Secretary Rachel Leland Levine.
‘How do you feel about defending a country that has no meaning in being a citizen?’ he then asks. ‘Every Mexican who crosses the border is literally one of you.’
The men appear to be talking amongst themselves, walking in pairs and still ignoring the man filming.
One of the soldiers appeared frustrated after the man said: ‘you are in a white country now. We don’t worship n*****s and Mexicans
The soldiers continue to walk together throughout the video, successfully ignoring the man
As the group approaches the exit of the building, the man decides to try another approach by making a racially targeted comment to the lone black member of the group.
‘Keep Poland white,’ the man is heard saying – gets no response.
‘Stay away from the white women. Hey, stay away from the white women.’
The soldier turns briefly before his friend puts a hand on his back and comforts him, leading him towards the exit.
The man then proceeds to try to provoke him, saying that “mixing used to be a crime in your country.”
Miscegenation is defined as “intermingling of people considered to be members of different races.”
In a reply tweet with another video, the man filming yells at the group: “you’re in a white country now, we don’t worship n****** and mexicans.”
At that point, the man who had been walking with the black soldier began to turn around, looking frustrated at his statements.
The black soldier then comforts him back, pats him and pushes him away.
The video ends with the unidentified cameraman yelling ‘You’re not welcome here guys’ as the men leave him.
The soldiers appeared in lockstep as the man continued to hurl racist and homophobic comments at them throughout the video
The video ends with the men completely walking away from the man who had been following them
The men have since been praised by army officials and social media users for their refusal to engage with the man, who was looking for a reaction
In September, Minadeo wrote that he had been arrested after demonstrating in front of the former extermination and concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The 39-year-old uploaded a photo on Gab on August 28 of himself holding a sign reading ‘Greenblatt suck 6 million d***s’ alongside neo-Nazi Robert Wilson, who held a ‘Shoah the ADL’ sign on the right. outside the Arbeit Macht Frei gate in Auschwitz.
Newsweek recently spoke with the US Army’s director of media relations, Terence Kelley, who said the matter is under investigation at this time.
Kelley said officials are also looking into the authenticity of the video.
He said: ‘The US Army expects all Soldiers to uphold the Army’s values, both on and off duty.
‘We commend all soldiers who show discipline and restraint when confronted with provocative behaviour.’
The responses, or lack thereof, from the soldiers drew praise from those who came across the Twitter thread.
‘Thank you for posting this. Too often, the service members who choose the harder right over the easier wrong go unrecognized, says verified Twitter user Charlotte Clymer.
“Proud of our boys for keeping calm,” wrote another.
‘This is the military I know and served in. I served 22 years with people like this. The restraint…the reassurance…in the midst of hate from what sounds like an American or Canadian. THIS IS WHAT WE DO,’ one person wrote.
