Jon Minadeo Jr, an American neo-Nazi who was arrested at Auschwitz earlier, is now accused of abusing US troops and passing homophobic and racial comments at a mall in Poland. The racist abuse came to light through a viral video shot at the mall where the person recording tells a black soldier to "stay away from white women."
According to the Daily Mail, many including YouTuber Jamesons Travels accused Minadeo of being the man behind the camera after the video went viral. Besides, Minadeo shared a link to the video containing the abuse on his Gab account.

Just a little bit ago, this video popped on my feed. It shows a man hurling racist insults and other comments towards a group of U.S. Army Soldiers, presumably somewhere in Poland.

Who is Jon Minadeo Jr?
Jon Minadeo Jr, a San Francisco Bay-area antisemite, founded the extremist group Goyim Defense League. He posts racially motivated content on Gab, a right-wing social media site.
After posting the video, he asked followers to "wreck" the comments on YouTube by writing, "BOOMER ALERT!!! WRECK AND GAS COMMENTS LETS F*****G GOOOOO!!!"
In the two-and-a-half-minute video recorded, a man believed to be Minadeo approaches four men in Army gear with the American Flag and asks them, "You guys American?" They respond, "Yes." Filming the group, he then asks whether they were in Poland to spread "George Floyd culture." He continued his abuse by asking what their thoughts were on the US health secretary being a "f***ing t****y," apparently referencing transgender Health Secretary Rachel Leland Levine.
His rant did not stop there. He went on to hurl racist abuse at the black soldier in the group by warning him to "stay away from those white women" and said, "miscegenation used to be a crime in your country." "You're in a white country now, we don't worship N-word and Mexicans," he added.
In the wake of the vitriol, the black soldier was comforted by his fellow serviceman. However, the man continued his taunts and yelled, "You're not welcome here, guys," before the end of the video.
In September this year, Minadeo, 39, was arrested for releasing an image of him posing with antisemitic banners at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.
