The woman told horrified shoppers she was wearing the swastika as a protest against Joe Biden. A couple has been banned from Walmart after wearing Nazi flags as face masks to one of the company’s Minnesota stores. The incident was captured by shocked onlookers shopping at the Walmart in Marshall in the state’s south-west on Saturday, the first day that people in the state were ordered by the governor to wear masks in indoor businesses. (Customers shopping in Walmart stores nationwide have been required to wear masks since Monday). (…) In the video filmed by Ruesch and uploaded by Mueller to Facebook, which has since gone viral, the young couple can be heard confronting the older pair wearing the Nazi symbols. “You’re sick. You have an illness,” says Ruesch. “You can’t be American and wear that mask. You cannot. We literally had a war about this.” “I’m not a Nazi. I’m trying to show you what’s going to happen in America,” the unidentified woman responds. “If you vote for [Joe] Biden you’re gonna be in Nazi Germany. That’s what it’s going to like.” Her male companion, who was wearing a Trump shirt, then says, “We’re living under a socialist state.” (…) The couple was offered alternative disposable face masks but refused to take off their Nazi coverings. They then became belligerent when they were asked to leave by store managers, prompting local police to be called. They were subsequently issued trespass notices and banned from Walmart facilities nationwide for at least one year. “What happened at our store in Marshall, Minnesota, is unacceptable,” Walmart spokesperson Delia Garcia said in a statement provided to BuzzFeed News. “We strive to provide a safe and comfortable shopping environment for all our customers and will not tolerate any form of discrimination or harassment in any aspect of our business.” Garcia said Walmart was asking customers to ensure the safety of all people in the stores.
