The Seattle Airport Nazi Was Arrested, Will He Now Get Help?

On November 20, a passenger at Seattle Tacoma International Airport’s gate D10 took advantage of the opportunity of a full flight of passengers to declare his allegiance to Adolf Hitler and plead for the start of a race war, yelling “sieg heil!” and “heil Hilter!” The man was arrested and held on psychiatric grounds.

Naturally the internet found him and doxxed him, but it turns out in a fairly sympathetic way. Here’s a man that’s both unwell and alone, and crying out for help on social media even as he rants about Jews and other forces in the world that he blames for his struggles (mein kampf..).

For instance, the man clears up the record on why Hitler was misunderstood.

He founded his own political party, the Christian Workers Party, which calls for socialism and revolution – and his manifesto explains that he has exposed himself in Seattle to approximately 50,000 people and was being mind controlled to show his manhood to hot women. The man seems both unwell and… ideologically confused.

He wrote a book, his own History Of The World.

It is the most dense history of the world ever. Read this book 10 times and become smarter than a Harvard PHD in History. It is 210 History books that iI have read Paraphrased into 1 book. Since e 2013 i have read 210 History books. Refer to the Notes to see the books that i read. I wanted to prove I had read the books. I would read 8 hours a day every day for years. Was the size of the book was similar to profiles in courage but was better than that book. It’s like a college textbook no filler or anyalsis or political talk just the paraphrased facts from the 210 history books I read. Went into the nazis in 3 pages in the book was mostly about ancient greece ancient rome the middle ages and the enlightenment era that was most of the book so please buy this book. This is volume 1 volume 2 will be my disertation for my phd. But a 500 page book from yale may have 10 facts ( of course 500 page books from yale are good,; I am not criticizing them) in the rest is filler, where a college textbook has hundreds of facts in it. It was more similar to college textbook

Perhaps this gets at the root of his issues?

Here’s a sympathetic discussion that summarizes what’s been learned about the man who disrupted boarding of that American Airlines flight to Dallas.

This wasn’t a sudden breakdown. It’s a man who has been unwell for some time, and for whom it took showing up at the airport and saluting Hitler to get any attention at all. He lives in Seattle, so exposing himself to tens of thousands of people doesn’t attract attention. That’s just a Tuesday. He needed to disrupt a flight’s boarding, and have law enforcement called by American Airlines. It remains to be seen whether this leads to an intervention of any sort, or whether he’ll be left to write volume two of his magnum opus.

  1. Gary – So you’re enabling a sexual predator by giving him even more of the attention he craves?

  2. I do not see what purpose is served by publicizing the plight of a mentally ill person having a psychotic break in a public place. It certainly has nothing to do with airlines, miles and points, etc.; this guy’s meltdown could just have easily have occurred at a Seahawks game or aboard a light rail train. Why go here?

  3. I don’t profess to know what goes on in other people’s minds .

    Thus, I have no idea why Gary chose to publish this story or why the guy for which the story was about picked an airport to display his hate for others.

    Regardless, he should receive mental health for his mental illness and maybe some sort of therapy to rid him of his affinity for antisemitism.

  4. He’s a white male. Definitely no help coming- especially in Seattle. Go walk the streets of Seattle – vast majority of homeless are white males. This is gonna be another one soon due to doxxing by “liberals”.

  5. Reading his tweets posted up there, I’m not sure if he meant “Bakunin” or “Bukharin”. And I don’t think that he does either.

  6. @Don I hate to interrupt your baseless attack on “liberals” with facts, but 2/3 of Seattle’s residents are non-latinx white. Only 7% are Black and the remainder a mix of API and latinx. So…one would expect that the homeless population would somewhat reflect the demographics of the larger city.

    And for everyone asking why Gary would post a piece like this it’s really quite simple: it’s click bait and we all clicked on it. Look at which posts tend to get the most comments…it’s the incendiary ones.

  7. Sadly it’s doubtful he will get any help. Washington state has a mental health system that is unable to help enough people. Wait times for psychiatric beds in a psychiatric facility are long and unless he seeks help the chances of him getting help are very low.

  8. On his facebook page he makes fun of Trump, so he’s not a MAGA guy. Hmmm…Wonder if he’s really a BIDEN guy. If that turns out, it’s definitely a plot twist people posting on here didn’t see who are complaining about the GOP LOL.

    Seriously: WHY POST THIS NUTJOB AT ALL? Has nothing to do with miles or points or flying, just some crazy goon at an airport making a scene.
