Gutfeld blames NYC subway Marine choke-out on ‘outraged leftists’: ‘It’s because of George Floyd’

The leftist mob has seized on an unfortunate incident that took place on New York City’s subway system in which an ex-Marine intervened to protect passengers from a mentally disturbed, homeless black man, subduing him with a choke hold that would result in his death.

Quick to pounce was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) whose incendiary remarks proclaiming that the former Marine is a “murderer” and that his act to neutralize the threat to his fellow subway riders was a “public execution” threaten to ignite another racial conflagration along the lines of the George Floyd riots that raged in the crime-ridden city during the summer of 2020, but it’s all politics to the left just as it was three years ago.

Greg Gutfeld wasn’t having any of it and called out AOC and her fellow racial arsonists’ spin on the death of 30-year-old Jordan Neely who is being portrayed as a harmless Michael Jackson impersonator despite his extensive history of arrests, one for punching an elderly woman in the face.

On Thursday’s edition of “The Five,” the crew discussed the incident as well as Ocasio-Cortez’s inciteful rhetoric with the Fox News funnyman setting the record straight with a scorching rant in which he laid the blame for the chain of events that ended with Neely in the morgue squarely at the feet of “outraged leftists” where it belongs.

“I rode the subway for years until it became unsafe,” he began. “I’ve been in that situation. And what everybody does is essentially try to mind their own business or get off the train. And then luckily, I’ve never been in a situation where it gets that violent.”

“But, this feels like a Bernie Goetz moment,” he said, referring to the New Yorker who in 1984, shot four black males who were trying to rob him on the subway, as he launched into his righteous rant.

“Anyone accusing anyone else of supporting that guy of non-compassion can go screw themselves, right?” Gutfeld said.  “We’ve been talking about what’s going on the subways. We’ve been talking about what’s been going on in the streets, the mentally ill being left to suffer on the street, the criminally deranged left on the street to attack and push women in front of trains and beat people over the head with pieces of wood.”

“We have been talking about the danger to themselves and the dangers to others for years. And I have nothing but contempt for the outraged leftists who caused this, who ignored this. They are like the person on the subway who just gets on their phone,” he continued.  “Like I wonder, I wonder, would AOC or anybody on the Squad or what’s his name – Chris Hayes? Anybody like that, would they actually step in?”

“I have to wonder, would they actually, you know, would they see somebody being menaced by a violent felon, would they actually try and intervene or would they decide not to share the risk and just step away because metaphorically, that’s what they’ve been doing for the last five years,” he stated.

“So they’re disgusting. If anybody says this is like George Floyd, no, it’s because of George Floyd,” Gutfeld opined. “Because since George Floyd, we’ve had the resulting chaos and defunding, the emasculation of the police egged on by the Squad, by the media, by different media outlets except CNN, that created the pathway and a void where you saw fewer police and you — who had to fill the void? We predicted this. Citizens are going to fill the void.”

‘None of the liberals gave a damn,” he later added. “They didn’t….crime to them became a political idea so screw you when you’re on the subway and then finally, they find a crime and they can manipulate it. But this is not the start of the story, right? This is the end of the story. The political cowardice, the negligence, the vicious anti-police rhetoric, the criminal coddling brought us here, right? This story has been going on for years.”
