Noted In Passing: Here on Earth Seattle Ace Hardware Employee Pulls Out Baseball Bat For Mask Fight

“We’ve now entered the stage of America reopening where apparently at an Ace Hardware in Seattle that means using a bat to enforce the mask rules. Video of Sunday’s mask fight at the Tweedy & Popp Ace Hardware in Lake City, Seattle is making the rounds and shows a store employee protecting the store from Bobby Dixon who tried to enter without a mask, according to TV station KOMO.” — Seattle Ace Hardware Employee Pulls Out Baseball Bat For Mask Fight – OutKick

    cux…the whole lot.
    Hardware stores have shit sitting all over the place disguised as non-weapons.
    WTF for?
    A stack of those tomato cages can put an assailant in the emergency room.
    Why was the victims friend just standing there?
    Cause he is a cuck.
    silly sissies

    Yeah, well it’s Seattle so, you know.
    Mask theater, follow The Leader’s demands or be voted off the island.
    And yes the lot are cuckbois.

    If masks actually worked to prevent the transmission of viruses this might make a ‘little’ sense. But the mask was always a symbol to be used by politicians to make it appear that they are actually doing something about Covid. We have been had. WAIT FOR IT…. Some politicians will soon call for mask mandates forever. No flying, no shopping or eating out without wearing a mask.

    I’ve seen girls that can throw a punch harder than that.
    Oh, that’s right, this was Seattle.
    I do see a lawsuit out of this. Since when does store management have authority to assault someone for not wearing a mask? NEVER.

    Too-small peepee.

    Wasn’t it just yesterday that a customer in Fukbum, Georgia, shot a cashier at, I guess it was a grocers, for demanding he put on a mask? Shot him dead, and wounded another slavemaster.

    Interesting how the mask went from a small tool in a health crisis, to an I’Q. test overnight. We are sitting on a powder keg.

    Interesting, it was the Ace Hardware store in our little town in the Shenandoah Valley that was the first local business to adamantly enforce our Govnr- Coonman’s mask mandate.

    I won’t waste pixels talking about how deeply I loathe the whole mask bullshit. I cut the sleeve off of an old T-shirt. When I can’t avoid going into a store, I put it around my chin, leaving my mouth and nose uncovered. A couple months ago I visited my local Ace to get sandpapers, contact glue, and some other miscellaneous stuff for the stone project. The old guys who run the place are some serious old-school pros. They’re walking encyclopedias of all things hardware related. I had about fifty bucks worth of stuff at the register. The girl working that day asked me to pull up the mask. “Do you want to sell me this stuff, or enforce your mask rule?” I asked. She sold me the stuff without a further word. I haven’t seen her there since.
    The bitch at the local Vons checkout went damn near hysterical on me because I wouldn’t obey her. She was vocal and loud. “Pull up your mask!” I completely ignored her ranting, and stuck the card in the machine. I completely ignored her as she danced around like she was avoiding a skunk, trying to give me the receipt and cash back, all the while repeating, “Pull up your mask” like she had a computer chip in her head.
    I deserved a medal for self control, I really did.
    I did not leave my purchase at the register.
    I did not raise my voice.
    I did not get in her face, and yell,”Shut the fuck up,” at the top of my lungs.
    And I am embarrassingly capable of pulling stunts like that. I’ve done it.
    But not this time.

    Not much of a “fight.”
    I didn’t see a single drop of blood from all that bitchslappery.
    I’m just hoping that a bunch of man-bun-wearing, triggered libtards don’t watch the video and use it as an excuse to burn down the Hardware Store.
    But if they do, what the hell- maybe it might catch the whole city of Seattle on fire and do the USA a big favor.

    We don’t wear no stinking masks anymore here in Ohio.

    Here in Phoenix the only places requiring masks are government buildings. Post offices, the VA hospital, and such. Plenty of places you see staff wearing them, but no one says anything to customers. But no chain retail business would treat a thief like that. Ace stores are locally owned.

    If a store asks me to wear one on entry, I’ll either comply or leave. Their store, their rules.

    I cannot imagine ever purchasing anything from a store who shoved a law abiding customer out the door with a bat like that. It looks like the video guy and the guy who tried to enter knew there was going to be trouble, and went looking for it. Still, people can post just the video of the guy with the bat on Yelp over and over.

  • Gordon Scott June 17, 2021, 1:30 AM

    Upon further review, there’s something weird going on here.
    First, no retail employee has a bat ready to fight off evil mask offenders. The store guys were expecting this. Second, the guy recording video is positioning himself to shoot video, not walk into a hardware store to purchase something. He’s expecting this.

    No one on either side was surprised. And no one but the two combatants wanted to fight. The others stayed back, and did not confront.

    A store owner would want the employees to say, “A mask is required for entry. We will not serve you without one, and you will not be able to make a purchase. If you cause trouble, you are clearly visible on store video and we will prosecute.”

    At a guess, the employee is the owner’s son, and the customer has some private beef with him.

    @Gordon: staged
    Didn’t look right from the beginning.

  • nunnya bidnez, jr June 17, 2021, 5:53 AM

    If it is, then the entire video is an incitement to riot; it’s riling people up, so they’ll go out and burn stuff down.
    Is posting staged videos, with the forethought that it will cause mayhem, any different than the relentless airing of the Rodney King edited video?

  • ghostsniper June 17, 2021, 6:55 AM

    2 white cux slapping each other like little bitches is going to incite whom to burn?
    What I saw was a business owner being abused by a potential employee and potential customer.
    If it wasn’t staged, does that mean if anyone unmasked approaches the door they will be assaulted the same way? The business owner should fire the employee and perhaps even have him arrested.

    My understanding is the Burning, Looting, Murdering requires no reason.

    In Illinois just last Friday our governor told us that since we had been good little boys and girls for getting enough people vaccinated, that we could open back up. If you are vaccinated then you don’t have to wear a face diaper, unless the business requires it. Well, I “identify” as vaccinated, so I now shop maskless. Most people are still fully masking anyway. Idiots.This week my husband and I are in South Dakota. The state and national parks allow unmasking indoors if you are fully vaccinated. Miracle of miracles, everyone must be vaxxed,because no one is wearing a mask anywhere, except for a few very frightened Karens. No social distancing is evident either. Restaurants are at full capacity and people are seated elbow to elbow at the bar. Even most employees are unmasked. It’s wonderful to see people’s faces again.

    I’ve a captive of the State of Wa. I wouldn’t call the Lakeway Ace Hardware part of Seattle…but clearly the whole west side of the Cascades has lost their friggin minds. I’m RN with 40 years exp on top of a microbiology science. Unless it is a N95 mask…all you are doing is protecting an open wound from you coughing on it. We use them to prevent bodily fluid splashes on our faces OR drips and coughs on open wounds. That is all. LOL IF a surgical mask is not good enough to protect one from TB…which is a very large bacteria…how could it possibly contain a virus?

    I live near Mt. Baker. We have mountain bikers zooming down the sidewalk or roads…with MASKS ON out in the beautiful air. You still can not go anywhere here to shop without a mask. People will jump off the sidewalk to avoid me walking my granddaughter in a stroller…BECAUSE I don’t wear a mask outside in a park where I might see 2 or 3 people. The sheeple actually wear masks in their cars…alone…driving down the road and going thru McD take out. Last week…was first time I saw the parking lot at fast food places with cars since March 2020. Heard people could go in and eat…with their masks. Rather bleak…but at least they are letting the local day care to start taking kids and letting them play outside. 2 months ago…they were closed and no kids playing outside. We apparently have Vaccine passports here in Wa now. Not sure how they plan to enforce it.

    I never wore a muzzle then nor now! I refuse to conform. People ask me “why, don’t you know hundreds of thousands of people have perish because of COVID”. I say, people die from causes of obesity and we all still eat shit and you don’t see the government stepping in.
