More details are coming out in the Jesse James scandal and they’re not pretty. We know he’s a cheating, lying, conniving douche, and when 5-10 more women crawl out of dank strip clubs to sell their stories for cash we’ll be interested but not surprised. Perhaps most damaging to his wife’s public image is the rumor that James is a white supremacist. We’ve heard that there are photos for sale of the 40 year-old making the Nazi salute. I was willing to give the guy an uncalled-for benefit of the doubt – like maybe he was really young and drunk when those photos were taken and his more racist buddies put him up to it. According to both In Touch and The Enquirer this week, that’s not the case and Jesse is a proud raging racist with a fascination for Nazi memorabilia. Both magazines even include the detail that he has a surfboard in his office with Hitler on it. As naive as this sounds, I honestly never realized that there were people who could be considered intelligent and successful who would openly display crap like that. Like even if they had those really disgusting tendencies, wouldn’t they try and hide it?
A wide-ranging Enquirer probe into the tattooed “Monster Garage” star’s secret double life has also discovered many allegations that he owns Nazi memorabilia and is a raging racist who’s quick to hurl vile ethnic slurs…
In another sick twist, The Enquirer has discovered Jesse’s Nazi memorabilia. He kept it in his office and the home he shared with Sandra. Jesse also reportedly was photographed wearing Nazi regalia and giving a “Heil Hitler” salute.
“Jesse has a long surfboard with a full-length picture of Adolf Hitler doing the ‘Sieg Heil’ salute, along with a swastika, in his office,” explained the insider.
Jesse- a former bodyguard for heavy metal bands Slayer and Danzig – is also racist and anti-gay, claimed the source.
“I think Jesse hates gays, Jews, blacks and Hispanics. He uses racist and homosexual slurs,” the insider said.
Photographer Billy Barrera, who’s from El Salvador, told The Enquirer that Jesse hurled a racial epithet at him when Barrera was outside West Coast Choppers after Sandra’s recent Oscar triumph for “The Bind Side.”
According to Barrera, Jesse told him: “You’ve got a lot of balls coming up here alone, you dirty Mexican!”

You know the photographer story is from a paparazzo that Jesse was annoyed at. It’s still unconscionable for him to say that to the guy.
In Touch’s report on the Nazi surfboard is straight from fellow racist Michelle McGee, or mistress #1. They report that she says “Jesse proudly showed her a ‘Hitler surfboard’ that he keeps in his office at West Coast Choppers. He also had sex with her, she says, on a coach he has that ‘was made from a coffin.’”
Kaiser and I have been talking about this quite a bit. She thinks that once James is outed as a white supremacist it will irreparably damage his massively betrayed wife’s reputation. I disagree. Look at all truly despicable behavior that James hid from Sandra over the years. He had three sexual harassment lawsuits that we know of, and the National Enquirer is reporting that there are at least 11 mistresses. It’s not that much of a stretch to think that he hid his racism from her as much as possible. She didn’t know he was banging strippers on the couch in his office day after day and maybe she didn’t know he had a surfboard with Hitler’s face on it. Surely she had a sense that her husband was racist, and maybe she talked to him about it, but it’s also possible she was willing to overlook it because she loved him and he seemed to act normal around people from different backgrounds. The guy was able to fake it with Sandra for years, and maybe he was able to fake tolerance as well.
