Shocking video footage of a confrontation inside a Washington state gun shop has gone viral, after the antagonist – a transgender ‘Antifa wannabe’ – accused the owner of being a Nazi before grabbing a stack of Bibles and throwing them at the storefront.
Private Sector Arms, a firearms dealer in Olympia, WA, was the scene of the bizarre episode that many thought was a stunt before store owner, Don Teague, is visited by local police near the end of the video, which has been viewed over 500,000 times in one day.
It is unclear whether the Antifa is male or female, and although it appears that it could be either, it was identifying as a male on the day of the incident, according to a police officer on the scene.
The video starts shortly after the Antifa enters the shop, and viewers later learn that it asked Teague if he “sells to k*kes,” before implying that Teague is a Nazi because he flies the Gadsden and colonial US flags in his front window.
“You wouldn’t do anything illegal, would you?” it asks Teague.
“Of course not,” Teague replies. “I’m a law-abiding citizen. Aren’t you?”
“We’re all law-abiding in our own ways,” it replies, before asking again. “Let’s see here… really, you don’t do anything illegal?”
“Nope. Do you do anything illegal? Why would you come in here and ask me that?” Teague responds. “The first thing you did was ask me if I sell to k*kes. I don’t even know what that is.”
The Antifa clarifies the meaning of the slur, proclaiming, “I love Jews,” before coming across Teague’s display of free Bibles.
“You can take one of those if you want,” Teague offers. “You can read it, burn it, do whatever you want with it.”
“Really? That’s nice of you, because I would burn it,” the antagonist replies, raising questions about its professed love for Jews.
“So it’s very Christian though, right?” Antifa inquires, before asking if it can take all of the Bibles, to which Teague replies, “You go right ahead.”
After the Antifa throws the Bibles out of the front door, Teague asks it to leave, and after a tense back-and-forth, it eventually does – only to collect the Bibles and begin throwing them at the front of the store and onto the roof.
Teague dials 911 and officers quickly arrive on the scene.
