John Elliot, who was known for banning neo-Nazis and Proud Boys from his punk bar, Streets of London Pub, has passed away from COVID-19.

9NEWS anchor and NEXT host, Kyle Clark, shared on Twitter that Elliot was battling cancer when he was infected with COVID-19 for a second time.

Colfax's Streets of London Pub, often referred to as Streets Denver, celebrated 20 years in 2018. However, over those two decades, the punk dive got a reputation for neo-Nazi clientele. When Elliot bought the bar a couple of years ago, he was ready to change that.

Elliot told Westword that the new policy was updated on Facebook as the following:

'Streets, as a bar and as a venue, welcomes EVERYBODY...everybody who isn't about hate, racism or bigotry, that is.

We f***ing hate racists, bigots, misogynists or apologists for that kind of sh**. Period. Bring that sh** here - get kicked out and 86ed. Start that sh** here - get kicked out and 86ed. Support that sh** here - get kicked out and 86ed.

So yeah, we're ABSOLUTELY intolerant. Intolerant of Proud Boy f***wits. Intolerant of racist sh**heads. Intolerant of bonehead douchebags. Intolerant of a**hole racist 'skins. Intolerant of misogynistic bulls**t.
Intolerant of anyone who makes excuses for that kind of f***ed up un-American shit. Streets isn't a home - or even a stopover - for ANY of that ignorant f***ery.

None of that sh** is punk...it's just f***ing lame and we don't want it here.

Don't like it? Too f***ing bad.'

On November 12, the bar shared on Facebook that Elliot had passed. There is a GoFundMe for his family here.

 

Our hearts are utterly crushed to tell you all that Jon passed away yesterday from health complications.

There truly...
