A witness, who was on the New York City Subway during the incident that led to deranged criminal Jordan Neely’s death, has fired back at the false narratives being pushed by Democrats and their allies in the corporate media.
The witness, who has remained anonymous over fears of retribution, specifically singled out radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for peddling divisive claims about the incident.
The woman told Fox News that she is retired, identifies as a person of color, and has lived in New York City for over 50 years.
She excoriated politicians for racializing the incident, and she called Marine Daniel Penny, who has been arrested for “manslaughter,” a “hero” for defending the other passengers on the Subway.
Recalling the incident, the witness said she was reading a book when 30-year-old Neely started threatening other passengers on the subway on May 2.
“I’m sitting on a train reading my book, and, all of a sudden, I hear someone spewing this rhetoric.
“He said, ‘I don’t care if I have to kill an F, I will. I’ll go to jail, I’ll take a bullet,’” she said.
She revealed that people were terrified and started crowding around the exits of the moving train to get away from Neely.
“I’m looking at where we are in the tube, in the sardine can, and I’m like, ‘OK, we’re in between stations. There’s nowhere we can go,’” she explained.
“The people on that train, we were scared.
“We were scared for our lives.”
However, she said that “hero” Daniel Penny bravely stepped in and took action after Neely used the words “bullet” and “kill” during his tirade.
“Why in the world would you take a bullet? Why?” she said.
“You don’t take a bullet because you’ve snatched something from somebody’s hand.
“You take a bullet for violence.”
She said that she stayed in order to make a statement to the police and that she and at least three other passengers thanked Penny for his actions.
“Mr. Penny cared for people,” she added.
“That’s what he did. That is his crime.”
She went on to call Penny a hero.
“It was self-defense, and I believe in my heart that he saved a lot of people that day that could have gotten hurt,” she added.
The witness singled out socialist congresswoman AOC as an example of politicians who were unfairly maligning Penny.
“There was AOC saying that this gentleman was lynched,” she said.
“Why would she do that? She’s supposed to be for all people.
“This isn’t about race,” the woman asserted
“This is about people of all colors who were very, very afraid and a man who stepped in to help them,” she added.
“Race is being used to divide us,” she warned.
After being charged with manslaughter by George Soros-funded Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Penny was released from jail on a $100,000 bond and is due in court in July.
The woman concluded with a warning about standards dropping in the U.S.
“It’s not looking that good for us,” she said.
“You know, we were supposed to be an example to other nations but are turning into a Third World country.”
