Man Confronts "Nazi" at D.C. BBQ Joint, It Doesn't Go Well

Just like D-Day.

There’s a BBQ Joint in D.C. that opened under President Bush called Hill Country BBQ. Having eaten there many times, I’ll give it the Bonchie seal of approval. It lives up to it’s billing as a very good representation of Texas pit BBQ.


Given it’s food styling, it draws in one of the more diverse crowds in the area and it was no surprise that some Trump supporters decided to eat there after the Fourth of July festivities on the National Mall.

One of those people happened to be wearing a MAGA hat and this apparently triggered the crap out of some liberal dude who describes himself as a “progressive communicator.”

He’s protected his Twitter due to the sheer ratio he’s been receiving, so I can’t embed the actual tweets.

Just got thrown out of Hill Country DC for standing up to a Nazi. Don’t go there ever again. They support Trump and Nazis. @HillCountryWDC @HillCountryBBQ

Guy wears MAGA hat at my favorite restaurant. I say “hey are you from dc?” He says “no.” I say “we don’t tolerate racism in this city.” His girlfriend then physically jabs fingers into my chest and starts threatening me. Management tells me to leave, not woman who assaulted me.

I’m literally shaking after reading that.

So the “Nazi” he was confronting was actually just some random guy trying to enjoy his brisket. He offers no evidence (nor does he even try to claim) that the man was acting out in anyway that called for confrontation. This was literally just a liberal being so overly triggered by a hat that he turned into Captain America and walked over to the table. Perhaps funnier is that in the midst of his harassment, the innocent man’s girlfriend punked Helmstetter by telling him to bug off.


Instead of just taking the loss, Helmstetter decided it’d be a good idea to squeal that he was assaulted and run to Twitter with his harrowing story.

Even better, when contacted, the restaurant did the right thing and didn’t kowtow to the possible mob being summoned.

Just called the manager there and his answer was “we are an equal opportunity restaurant who welcomes all political viewpoints” before hanging up on me. cool, except MAGA hats actually make clear that POC and LGBT are not welcome at all.

And for the record, the Nazi’s girlfriend assualted me by jabbing her fingers into my chest repeatedly, and I simply backed up. Yet I was told to leave, not the Nazi or his Nazi girlfriend.— TJ Helmstetter (@TheTJHelm) July 5, 2019

Actually, POC and LGBT persons are clearly welcome just like everyone else. A red hat is not a threat to anyone nor does it delineate that a person is a “Nazi” simply because they support President Trump. The assumptions being made by this clown are just moronic. How much of a wuss do you have to be to get that worked up over someone quietly eating their dinner?

To clear up his confusion, when you violate someone’s personal space and harass them in a private setting, there is some amount of push back allowed. No one is getting arrested and charged with assault for putting their fingers into your chest and telling you to step back.


Also, I’ll note that political discrimination is illegal in Washington D.C.

This is what you get in a society who’s excesses have reached such a high level that people have to invent tyranny in order to give their lives meaning. This guy really thinks he’s a heroic fighter of Nazis because he got triggered by a MAGA hat and endured an “assault” at the hands of someone’s girlfriend. It’s pure delusion.

Unfortunately, these kinds of stories are becoming more and more common as left-wingers seek to not just disagree with their opposition, but banish them from polite society. We’ve seen numerous examples of attacks on Trump supporters, politicians, and administration officials in eateries across the country. It’s gross and uncalled for.

Eventually, someone is going to do this to the wrong person and things are going to escalate to an undesired place. We’d all be much better off as a civilization if we went back to leaving politics in the political arena. Disagreement does not denote evil on your opponent and trying to create a segregated society where people can’t even enjoy a peaceful meal is leading us into a dark place.


For the moment though we can simply point and laugh at this guy. I have a feeling he won’t be standing up to anymore “Nazis” for a while.
