A Navy man was stabbed by an anti-fascist after being mistaken for a neo-Nazi. The reason they thought he was a neo-Nazi? His haircut.
The victim is 26-year-old Navy officer Joshua Witt. This scary incident went down in Sheridan. He took to his Facebook page to talk about it and admits that he is lucky to be alive.
Here is his Facebook post on what went down.
Josh made sure to state that he has no tattoos or anything else that would indicate that he is a neo-Nazi. His friends have stepped in and explained that it's his freaking haircut that triggered them.
Many people have considered his hairstyle as the neo-Nazi cut. The incident from the Charlottesville protest have went a long way in establishing this. It's actually one of the most popular cuts for a man. Buzzed on the sides, slightly longer on top.
The Facebook post Joshua made his over 20,000 shares and has gone viral. According to his recount of the story, he was simply pulling up to Steak 'n Shake in Sheridan Colorado when he opened his car door and heard someone ask, "Are you one of them neo-Nazis?" At this point he is already have a knife swung at him.
Luckily he was able to dive back in the car and slam the door shut. At this point the Antifa stabber was already running away. Fortunately the stabber missed the target he was going for. “The dude was actually aiming for my head,” Witt added.
So this guy is in the Navy, where short hair is mandatory. Many of the branches of the United States Military as well as law enforcement require this type of haircut. So if this person attacks anyone they see with this haircut, there is a good chance they are stabbing law enforcement officers and those who serve our country.
