Days after a person wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood jarred shoppers in Santee, California, a couple turned up for their grocery run in anti-Semitic masks in the same Southern California community.

In a video that has now gone viral, a couple is seen wearing face masks with Nazi swastikas glued onto them — reportedly to protest COVID-19 safety measures in the state.

Dustin Hart posted a 14-minute clip to BitChute, “a video platform used mostly by far right-wing ideologues and conspiracy theorists,” according to an Upworthy report.

He justified his behavior by saying….

“We were peacefully protesting all the crazy lockdown rules that have been and are continuing to be enforced here in San Diego, California. These crazy rules are destroying any quality of life we had left. Now we are unemployed and literally have nothing better to do and nowhere else we are allowed to be.”

As the couple roams around the supermarket, an employee tells them that they can’t wear masks inside the store. While it’s compulsory to wear one in some stores, it’s perhaps safe to say that most stores won’t allow it to be hate-mongering propaganda.

Hart responds to the essential worker by saying it’s his First Amendment right to decorate his mask as he sees fit. “This is America, land of the free,” he declares.

Soon, deputies from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department are called in. They reason with the duo to take off their masks at the “family-friendly” store. Hart tells them that he was planning on it — at the check-out counter.

‘I see the LGBT flag and that’s offensive to me…’

Hart tells the police, “We have a Nazi for a governor. Now you guys are here, literally proving my point.” And it doesn’t stop there. Hart takes a dig at the LGBTQ too.

The officer goes on to explain that the mask is offensive. Hart responds, “I see the LGBT flag and that is offensive to me and I don’t call the cops. I would just like to go back to work. All I get to do is sit home and fester. I want to get out of my house and go to work and be productive.”

Although no arrests were made at the time of this incident, the Sheriff’s Department released a statement that it “does not condone hate or acts of intolerance.” They added, “We are a county that is welcoming of people from all backgrounds.”
