Many readers would have seen the viral video of a man in a restaurant who raged against employees who were speaking Spanish and “threatened to report the Spanish speaking workers to immigration authorities, saying he assumed they were probably undocumented. He also complained that they were on welfare and his tax dollars are supporting them.”
Who this this bigot in Midtown Manhattan? What's his name?
Please share this.
Here he is harassing & insulting two women for speaking Spanish…TO EACH OTHER in the middle of Manhattan.
Trump has empowered ugly white people like this to say whatever they feel like saying. pic.twitter.com/WbHlet6H7c

Journalists easily tracked him down and found that he is Aaron Schlossberg, a lawyer and a fervent Trump supporter, and that his behavior did not surprise many of his former classmates in college and law school. Shaun King reports that “Several Muslim leaders across the city told me that he has randomly stalked and harassed them over the past few years and they just didn’t know who he was.”
Another reporter, the lead editor at A Plus, says he recognized the man from a video last year. Based on that video, Isaac Saul says the same man was screaming at Jews saying they weren’t Jewish. He describes him as “a die hard Trumper.”
I wouldn’t soon forget him. Had that crazy look in his eyes. Was a die hard Trumper and pretty unreasonably upset there were Jews supporting Palestine around.
What I would like to see with some of these xenophobes is for someone to ask them to show papers proving that they have documents proving that they are in the country legally. They seem to feel that since they are white, their right should be taken for granted when that need not be the case. It would be nice to see their reaction when challenged to prove their citizenship.
