Have You Heard the One About the Rapper That Mooned The Nazis?

Categories: LOLZ
The National Socialist Movement (the American Nazi Party) held a rally in St. Louis on April 18 under the Gateway Arch, and in response, a large crowd gathered to protest the Nazis. Police and park rangers erected barricades to separate the two groups.

Park Rangers and St. Louis police kept the two groups on opposite sides of the Arch, but it was a distance that couldn't stop a moonrise.
Several media outlets, including the RFT, covered the event. Here's the slideshow that was posted on the Daily RFT, to give you an idea of what the crowd and atmosphere was like. 

Among the protesters was Tef Poe, a hip-hop artist from St. Louis. This fact might have gone unnoticed, if not for the caption on this picture submitted to the website for the Post-Dispatch:

Intrigued, we called up Tef Poe to hear his Nazi mooning story. Here it is, verbatim save for a bit of minor editing for clarity and conciseness:

When I went to go down there I was amped. I woke up early in the morning, caught the bus like three hours beforehand. I got dressed up like I was going to a job interview. I was looking forward to it.

When the rally actually started about there were about 150 of 'em [Nazis]. They started marching and I went into go mode.
I started yelling all kinds of stuff. It was mostly funny to me that these guys are dedicating their lives to come out and do this. It's idiotic but noble at same time. I don't agree with views at all but I respect their dedication.

Anyhow, I started having direct, back and forth conversations with them. Before I knew it every media outlet was talking to me...They said we're going to follow you around cause you're the only entertainment.

I had the crowd chanting 'Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart' and stuff like that. One of the main Nazis started talking and when he stopped to take a breath I yelled 'Your breath smells like hot dog water!

Then he hung his hand out and made a noose. And I'm like 'Ooh I'm scared.' I was heckling the heck out of them dudes.' I came out to make their lives a little harder and have fun and laugh at 'em. 

Eventually I yelled something and he said 'You shut your black ass up!' And then I said 'I got a black ass for you!' And turned around and mooned him.

Then cops came over. They were park rangers or something. I could tell they weren't from St. Louis because they had a country twang accent-- they from part of Missouri that calls it Mizz-urr-UH. He said 'Son, if you drop your trousers one more time I'm going to ask you to leave.

I went to actor mode. I figured if he did something it'll be on caught on camera. I said 'You need to be asking them to leave. They're spreading this hateful bullshit.' People clapped and applauded.

He didn't do nothing. He turned around and said 'If you drop those trousers again I'll ask you to leave.' 

After a while I was like 'I better chill out. He's looking for somebody to get ignorant on.'

All in all, the rally was fun. I wish I could go to one every day. I could travel with them and have some fun.

Police discouraged shooting photos of them convening under this overpass just south of the Arch, but this photo was snapped from a car outside the rally.

Tef Poe: responds to the park ranger and his wife...

First off I would like to say that none of this was some sort of publicity stunt and I was just attending the rally and acting sporadicly.I never indicated that your husband was a racist and I actually never directed any negative energy towards your husband.He only spoke to me once and I didn't fabricate anything,he said I'd have to leave if it happened again and that was the end of it.(and for the record he did not refer to me as Sir..lol)The bigger issue here isn't the fact that I mooned the Nazi's but more so the fact in 2009 there are still people bamboozled by the foolishness of racism and sexism.I've read a couple comments about people asking why bother even going such a rally and my response is simple..just because you choose to ignore it doesn't mean it isn't happening and for the most part like I've also previously said what type of self respecting human being would take these characters serious? They have just as much of a right to speak their mind as I do and thats the beauty of the situation.I went to a protest to protest.People have expressed a few things about the mooning incident but the funny part is I was also on KMOX and I expressed my feelings about the rally and the views of the Neo Nazi's to the news anchor in a very self respecting and dignified manner yet that interview doesn't get as much coverage so go figure..

No disrespect intended to officer Mike just telling the story as it happened from my perspective

Seems like Tef Poe is just copying the tactics of the old communist professor David "bare bum" Lethbridge.

They imagine it makes a convincing argument.

Dear Tef Poe,

While I applaud your efforts to voice the views of dislike to the Nazis (which I agree with 100 0/0) I do not care for how you handled the telling of your story of that day! The Federal Park Ranger (of the St. Louis Arch) who spoke to you about your mooning, is my husband. He to was not happy about the rally that was taking place, but he was just there doing his job trying to keep the peace. But at the same time in telling your story to RFT you painted a some what raciest picture of him also. I was not there, but I know for a fact he would not ever refer to a grown man as Son! I am almost certain he said Sir. As he always speaks to everyone with some sort of respect. This has to do with his Army back round as he is a Army Reservist also. Now as far as the Country Twang Accent, he does have a little of that, but only because he moved from Kansas City, MO to the Ozarks as a child. But I really do not know what that had to do with anything. I guess the main reason why I responded to this is to say, Please do not bring yourself down to the same level of the Nazi s's and be ugly to wards someone who was just doing his job and trying to keep others from getting hurt. The Nazi s's also had plenty to say to him also, about how he was not doing his job in letting all those other people harass them. So just be happy that you where heard by the bad guys, but please don't beat up on the good guys.

Thanks The Park Rangers Wife

i applaud tef for coming out to protest and acknowledging the value of free speech, both yours and theirs.

i also applaud mike for contributing to this discussion and stating his view of the events. i grew up in sw missouri and still have a tendency to pronounce it miz-zur-ah.

communication is the enemy of hate.

@MikeYou can't go and straighten out the distortion on the story. These people need to belong to something, and since mocking Nazis is easy to do, they need it to give them selves some purpose. So they feel like they are being "involved" in some pseudo-political issue.

I believe I said "SIR, If you drop your pants again, I will ticket you for disorderly conduct." I would never call a grown man son because that is disrespectful. I save that for 8 year olds.

I also told Mr. Poe that he had every right to continue protest the actions of the NSM but that waving his rear end around wasn't appropriate in public. I "didn't do anything" because there was no further reason to deal with Mr. Poe.

As for my country accent, I moved here from the Lake of the Ozarks when I was 14. After 30 years here, attending St. Thomas Aquinas HS and UMSL and still living here I think I qualify as a St. Louisan. BTW, I pronounce it "Missour-eee, not Miz-zur-ah".

Most racists have been abused by someone, mainly sexually. So they are seeking a "family" environment, a sense of care and companionship. Unfortunately, these groups know that and prey on those types of people and suck them into their group. So the next time you see a neo nazi, just picture him getting butt banged by his father or uncle or both. Then it all makes sense and life can move on. Oh and most of them have the IQ of dirt anyways, so pity them.

90% of the anti-Nazi gathering is white.

How come we don't see 90% black gatherings protesting against Louis Farrakhan?

Awesome story. Tef Poe seems to have a great attitude about the whole thing. The Nazis are so pathetic I think making fun of them is much more appropriate than getting angry.

If a Nazi rally bothers someone so much, then don't fucking go to it...if a Black Panther rally bothers someone so much, then don't fucking go to it...freedom if speech, that is what makes our country unique...and if you only want to hear the things said that make you happy, and leave everything else out....then pack your shit and move to North Korea...

The fact that people feel this way still shows the problems our country faces, but the whole event has been more productive in fighting against racism. This negative publicity brought on by themselves encourages a greater percentage of people to fight against such actions and ideas. However, it is a two way street and denying them the right to demonstrate means that no one can demonstrate, no matter how unpopular the topic or group may be. We have to take from this what we can, and in my opinion, is that we can unite our asses together and wipe racism from this great nation. I couldn't resist. . .

these nazi (insert feminine hygeine product here)'s hate minorities. Going by their logic, since they are in the minority, they hate themselves.

Wouldn't it be a riot if they actually started to protest themselves for being the inferior race(ist)? Even one better. They started a mass campaign of genocide against themselves. I'm sure we'd all contribute to THAT cause. What a bunch of idiots.
