Heroic Marine vet Daniel Penny breaks silence about subway choke-out: ‘This had nothing to do with race’

The funeral for the left’s latest racial martyr was as much of a spectacle as many had predicted as the violent thug who met his tragic and untimely demise on a New York City subway train was laid to rest with race-baiting Rev. Al Sharpton delivering the eulogy for Jordan Neely on Friday, and the next day, the heroic good samaritan who accidentally sent the Michael Jackson impersonator to his great reward broke his silence.

Marine Corps veteran Daniel Penny, a passenger onboard the Lower Manhattan F train where the 30-year-old criminal ran amok, who acted selflessly to protect the terrified subway riders from harm by subduing Neely with a chokehold that unfortunately ended his moonwalking and granny-beating career, sat down with the New York Post for an exclusive interview, breaking his silence for the first time since the incident and his subsequent legal lynching by Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.

“This had nothing to do with race,” the soft-spoken 24-year-old USMC vet told the outlet’s Dana Kennedy, denying the false narrative that has been ginned up in order to weaponize race. “I judge a person based on their character. I’m not a white supremacist.”

“I mean, it’s, it’s a little bit comical. Everybody who’s ever met me can tell you, I love all people, I love all cultures. You can tell by my past and all my travels and adventures around the world. I was actually planning a road trip through Africa before this happened,” Penny said.

He also insisted that despite the smears, he is not a vigilante who would take the law into his own hands, “I’m a normal guy.”

While he wouldn’t go into details of exactly what went down on the subway with his life hanging in the balance after Bragg had him arrested and charged and a hostile jury from a local pool poisoned by media and Democrats like Sharpton and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez awaits, he did say that the situation when Neely snapped and began threatening the passengers was not like “anything I’d experienced before.”

“This was different, this time was much different,” he said, pausing before repeating that.“This time was very different.”

Neely, who has been canonized by the media as a sweet and good-hearted kid who enjoyed dressing like the “King of Pop” and performing for bystanders wasn’t singing and dancing on that fateful day, according to accounts from those who thought that the train ride might be their last and they could be killed at the hands of the out-of-control assailant in their midst, a man who despite his relatively young age, had racked up an impressive rap sheet of over 40 arrests including the brutal assault of an elderly woman.

According to the New York Post, one witness recounted that Neely “went on an explosive tirade just before his caught-on-camera death, telling people he was willing to ‘kill a motherf—er’ and “[take] a bullet” and go to jail.”

“The rhetoric from Mr. Neely was very frightening, it was very harsh,” the witness told the outlet.“People that travel the subway see and hear everything — this was different. And frightening.

Like the seasoned race grifter that he is, Reverend Sharpton flat out lied to Neely’s mourners, claiming that the deceased thug wasn’t threatening anyone and suggesting that Penny’s actions were motivated by the thug’s skin color.

“I can tell you that the threats, the menacing, the terror that Jordan Neely introduced to that train have already been well documented.” Penny’s attorney Thomas Kenniff said, adding that the witnesses would provide a truthful account of what happened. “I don’t think it’s going to even be controversial. There are numerous witnesses from all different walks of life who have absolutely no motive to do anything other than to recount what actually happened. They are uniform in their recollection of events.”

“I was going to my gym,” Penny told the outlet. “There’s a pool there. I like to swim. I was living in the East Village. I take the subway multiple times a day. I think the New York transit system is the best in the world and I’ve been all over the world.”
