Seattle Ace Hardware Employee Pulls Out Baseball Bat For Mask Fight

Videos by OutKick

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.

“It was actually quite terrifying,” Dixon told KOMO. “I’ve never had anybody come at me with a weapon like that, and it was flight or fight. And I was trying to get out of there, and he kept coming at me super aggressively.”

Dixon told the station that he and a friend went in to buy screws. Dixon was masked, but his friend wasn’t. Store employees told the friend, who says he’s fully vaccinated, to get out because the store has implemented a mask policy.

Dixon says the video shows him trying to reenter the store to talk to a manager over the experience and that’s when he was met by the baseball bat.

Look, this stuff is happening all over the country and that’s clearly not the shocking part here. What’s shocking is that an Ace Hardware employee feels that it’s necessary to play enforcer with a Louisville Slugger when he could’ve just locked the door and called police. Instead, Bret Boone decides he’s going to start a line brawl — while masked up — to defend his hardware store from these mask terrorists.

Notice how the guy wearing an Ace shirt has his mask pulled down to yell at the customers. Good luck to all of you who are still living in areas like this. Meanwhile, I’ll be over at Costco maskless and suckin’ down samples while chatting away with the friendly old ladies serving up lunch, one bite at a time.

  1. There is much we have and will continue to learn from this insane Covid agenda.
    One thing we’ve seen is just how easily a ‘Nazi’ state can become reality. These mask nazis are all ready for action at the flip of a switch – all because they’re so pathetically programmed by mainstream propaganda. These are the same peops who want to ‘defund the police’ and the next day will scream, “Only the Police should have guns.”
    “Let the experts and the science tell us what to do.”

  2. Dear Jesus, do kids even wrestle or box with their friends anymore or do siblings not fight anymore? Everyone on these “fights” look like people who have never ever had any kind of physical altercation in their lives. I would’ve jabbed a tomato cage as far in that imbecile’s face as it would go.

  3. For someone to be that afraid of something so remotely dangerous looks like mental illness. I honestly think many people have ptsd from 18 months of being told they’re going to die from covid or kill someone with it by being around them. When you have ptsd you become “hyper-vigilant” and are constantly on high alert at the slightest indication of danger related to the trauma. We have millions acting like this who really need counseling. It’s no joke.
