According to KRON, Johnny Ramondetta, a neo-Nazi who attended the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, recently lost his job in San Francisco.
An unidentified viewer reportedly tipped off the news station to his alter ego, Johnny Monoxide, who is known among conspiracy theorists.
The Southern Poverty Law Center notes that Ramondetta is a neo-Nazi who appears in several alt-right podcasts.
A poster with Confederate flags and Nazi propaganda stated that Ramondetta was scheduled to speak at the “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.
Ramondetta had been performing work for Rosendin Electric at a hospital in the Bay area. Fliers were posted on a hospital that quoted Ramondetta’s podcasts with his racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic rants.
Rosendin Electric told KRON that “it is committed to providing a work environment that is free of discrimination and harassment,” and added “Mr. Ramondetta is no longer employed with Rosendin Electric.”
Ramondetta’s union is the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local Union 6 in San Francisco, which said: “He has a right under the U.S. Constitution to free speech but he has to do so within the confines of the law.”
IBEW said it cannot expel Ramondetta from the union which has caused outrage on social media.
KRON tried to contact Ramondetta, but did not hear back.
Ramondetta’s Twitter account has also been suspended.
