GEORGIA (COUNTRY): Neo-Nazis Pelt Vegan Cafe Patrons With Sausages Because Gays Eat There

The Guardian reports:

A vegan cafe in the centre of Tbilisi was shocked to find itself the subject of far-right ire after a group arrived and threw meat on patrons’ plates, leading to a public brawl.

Customers said a group entered the cafe wearing sausages around their necks and carrying slabs of meat on skewers, before attacking customers and staff.

Witnesses described the attackers as “far-right extremists”, and said the clash spilled onto the street outside after the attackers were asked to leave. Minor injuries were reported but the perpetrators fled before police arrived.

A statement issued on Facebook by the Kiwi Cafe on Monday described the incident as “an anti-vegan provocative action” accusing the attackers of being “neo-Nazis” who support “fascist ideas”.

The statement also alleged that members of the group had come to the neighbourhood a month earlier and asked a nearby shopkeeper whether foreigners or members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community frequented the cafe.

Ultra-nationalists had marched through Tbilisi over the weekend. The Kiwi Cafe says they will continue to accept all customers “regardless of their nationality, race, appearance, age, gender, sexual orientation, or religious views.”

        Well, it’s also apparently partly rooted in ….getting weird about food and poop, but with angers? 🙂

    Neo-Nazi sausage fest , and not their first .

    • Sk3ptic

      My thoughts exactly. They must really love their meat. If you know what I mean.

      • Todd20036

        Nope. Sorry. Completely clueless here. Whatever do you mean?

        • Sk3ptic

          Right? Why don’t these secret cock lovers realize they just outed themselves to the rest of us who know?

  • Mike C

    They obviously don’t know their history.

    • Sk3ptic

      They sure don’t–but that’s never stopped stupid.

    • David Walker

      I wonder if they yearn for the good old days the way our older, fatter haters do. They know little to nothing about it, but they’re sure it was great.

    • Gene

      history has a habbit of being RE written Mike…from Denmark to France (especially France) to the Netherlands…and on to the areas of the caucuses, LOTS of the population were MORE than happy to welcome the NAZIs.. Georgia was no exception. This is just a new growth on old roots…fascism in all its forms has ancient history there. Its Stalins homeland, afterall

  • TampaZeke

    Were they wearing hats that said, “Making Georgia Great Again”?

    • Todd20036

      That’s a typo. The hats read: Make Georgian Grates again.

      They makes grates.

            Sounds like the perfect flashbacks. And I know what you mean…that music can make a lasting impression.

    • another_steve

      If Donald Trump — with the support of the KKK and his theofascist base here in the U.S. — is elected President in November, we can expect to see more of this kind of anti-gay violence here in the states.

      The thugs will feel empowered.

      They’ll be ready to go.

        I’m still going to laugh if they show up wearing chains of bratwurst, though. “When they came for me, they brought lunch.” 🙂

    I was chatting with this Georgian guy on Grindr and told him I’d love to visit that country. He basically said I should forget because it’s full of homophobic people. It’s a shame because it looks so beautiful, in terms of culture and scenery, not to mention being apparently where viticulture originated (and there’s some awesome wine that comes from there, all with its own regions and grape varieties).

    That said, the existence of Georgian neo-Nazis is bizarre because most Russian Nazis hate people from the Caucasus (and the actual Nazis hated Slavs).

  • HAAAAAAA

    LOL

  • Sam_Handwich

    Ok, boys. Vegans are a threat to your meat-eating existence just like gays are a threat to your pussy-eating existence.

    Which is to say that we’re the OPPOSITE of a threat, because there’s more pussy and meat for YOU, idiots.

    • Craig S

      I’m a vegan who doesn’t mind having sausage slapped on his face, but this does seems bit extreme.

      • NZArtist

        Does being vegan prevent you from swallowing semen?

        • Craig S

          Veganism is a personal journey for everyone and we all make decisions based on our beliefs. I figure as long as the semen provider wasn’t (seriously) injured, then it is ok. Of course, if the provider eats some pineapple beforehand, that just sweetens the deal 🙂

          • NZArtist

            So ethically farmed semen is okay. 🙂

          • Bluto

            This here blog thingie is so educational.

          • tristram

            Well, in its own special way. And I do enjoy the repartee. That said, I have to admit that the incident sent a shiver of real terror down my spine. Georgia is one of a number of countries in that area where intimidation and violence against lgbt people and other non-conformists appears to be increasing. This incident seems to be a quite sinister escalation of the intimidation evidenced by the visit by the same crowd last month. And as in Russia, the cops never get there until the haters have left. So the message now is, we can come into your place and do what we want to you and nobody’s gonna touch us. And while the timing of the visit to Tbilisi of Brian Brown and his WCF klan may have been coincidental, there’s nothing random about the larger context. I don’t know what we can do about it, but I really feel for our folks over there.

          • Craig S

            I do support sustainable semen sources, yes.

        I doubt they’re gay, since we’re the least violent of all males. I guess they’re all celibate.

      Sadly, it’s not the first group of would-be Nazis I’ve seen go down the tragic path, it starts with nifty nylon flight jackets and buzzcuts, next thing you know they’re roving around trying to cause aggro over bootlaces, all hopped up on liverwurst and authoritarianism, pretending to like German folk music at the Wursthaus. I blame society.

  • Steven Leahy

    Oh, so now we can’t even eat what we want? I thought right-wingers were all about FREEDOM!

    So, each in their own way evolution deniers, but which ones most bear the ‘damning’ resemblance right now. 🙂

  • NancyP

    Huh? You’d think they would thank the vegans for leaving MORE MEAT FOR THEM!

    • David Walker

      Why be grateful when you can be violent? Besides, you’re asking them to think something through. That’s expressly forbidden in their…well, they don’t have a handbook, so whatever it is they listen to.

  • JTC

    I wouldn’t put it past the rednecks in the Georgia stateside to do that here.

    And really, Tbilisi police? Arresting the server? I guess it would have been far too hard to go after the people actually starting all this shit. Or perhaps you side with the neo-Nazis. I’ll go with the latter.

    • Goodboy

      Explains why they’re running around in broad daylight with lots of witness with impunity.

    • Paulino

      Of course you’ll assume the police side with neo Nazis based on a tweet. Imagine what I could do with a ring in your nose.

      • Goodboy

        In Russia anyways it’s common for the police to turn the other way with the Neo Nazi’s bashing certain minority groups. Even before gays were set up as a scapegoat.

  • NZArtist

    It’s the Kiwi Café? They apparently mean the fruits as well as the birds. How very strange.

    • Adam King

      Or New Zealanders? Maybe vegans think New Zealanders are vegetables.

  • Goodboy

    The only arrest the cops made was the server?

    • JustSayin’

      Where do you see that a server was arrested? Are my eyes going that bad i missed it in the above story?

        In the below tweet.

  • Jay George

    What kind of asshole bullies pick on a bunch of vegans? Do they feel threatened by the dietary restraints of others? They’re fearful because a gay guy might be eating a floret of broccoli? What the hell? What the actual fucking hell? There is nothing more revolting than a goddamn Nazi except a bunch of Nazis throwing sausage at vegetarians. ARGH!

    • Friday

      Frankly, this may be the old punker talking but if I saw a bunch of skinheads wearing sausages like it was a thing I’d be laughing too hard. 🙂

      • Jay George

        If you’re an old punk, you know that skinheads didn’t start out as racist assholes. They were just assholes. 😀 I hate Nazis worse than anything.

        • Friday

          Yeah, very few went full-on Nazi, actually. Personally glowered at Tom Metzger once, though, heh, heh, not so tough without an ‘audience.’ 🙂

          • Jay George

            Good for you! 😀 I turned over a Klan literature table once at street fair, but I was blackout drunk at the time.(I don’t do that any more.) I heard all about it the next day from my anxiety ridden, stressed out friends. 😀

          • Friday

            Heheh. 🙂 Yeah, we ran off the Klan a couple times, too, but they weren’t really feeling their oats like they seem to be posing right now. 🙂

          • Jay George

            Honestly, I would be seriously afraid to “protest” the klan the way I have in the past. One, I’m older and have more sense, but they are about a million times more ready to shoot people than they were in the 70s & 80s.

    • madknits

      Well, you know, Christians have felt threatened by Jewish dietary restrictions for centuries.

    You would think the neighbors would have noticed a squad of goons wearing meat walking down the street.

  • Better be glad they did it in Tblisi. They tried that shit in the U.S. with some of the vegans here, there would have been blood. Definitely a “nobody out-crazies Ophelia” moment.

    It sounds like there is a pretty large neo Nazi resurgence in what was the USSR. What is it with these people and repression? For that matter, will our homegrown Nazis be encouraged by their apparent successes? We are going to have a lot of gay people in large groups throughout the USA during Pride Month.

    • abel

      The next few years will be increasingly dangerous for LGBTs, especially if The Donald become POTUS. Our “advances” in civil rights have angered a lot of scumbuckets. The backlash we’re seeing in legislatures and local governments is at least handled civilly. What’s coming might not be.

      • Helen Damnation ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Please don’t say he will become POTUS. That isn’t going to happen. He needs much of minority votes, which he will not get. It cannot happen. Please someone, tell me this cannot happen.

        • abel

          You’d think he wouldn’t get any minorities, any immigrants, any gays, or any women! But elections are funny things, as history teaches us. (“Dewey Wins!”) Once the GOP bosses and The Money get behind The Donald, he just might do it. He is unafraid of telling bald-faced lies, of grandstanding, of throwing tantrums, making promises he won’t keep, changing his opinions by the minute, and we still don’t know who his veep candidate will be. (Some here have suggested that he may actually be suffering early Alzheimer’s, which will of course remind his adherents of their sainted Ronnie Reagan.) The man has no integrity, just like most politicians, but he’s raised it to the nth power. Believe me, Helen, I pray it doesn’t happen, but we have to recognize that, crazy as he is, Trump is a viable candidate.

    • bambinoitaliano

      It’s call trickle down oppression. Start all the way up from Putin. Marginalizing minority groups as a way to divert attention away from real crisis that will highlights the shortcomings of the oppressors.

  • Elliott

    I just did a word association experiment. I imagined the word “vegan” and I thought about the first and most recurring word. All I came up with was “trustworthy”. When I do the same thing for Ukranian, I just get “ashes”.

    That tells me all I need to know.

  • GanymedeRenard

    I don’t know if this has already been said, but isn’t it bizarre that Tblisi is also the city where Brian Brown’s hate group will hold their hate fest (did they do it already?)?

    And attacking vegans, really? What will these scumbags do next.,, burn down marketplaces? Quite frankly, it worries me to see the resurgence of these types of extremism in both sides of the Atlantic (or the Black Sea in this case).
