In addition to being one of the most liberal cities in the United States, New York City has always been characterized for being a place where crazy things could happen anytime. Naturally, if you combine these two different realities, the door is open to any kind of bizarre and unpredictable situation.
Basically, this is exactly what happened on Wednesday, when an unhinged social justice warrior was captured on camera after he plunged onto a subway track. Believe it or not, this man had no better idea than ranting about equality while threatening to commit suicide in front of everybody. Almost a metaphor of the American left itself.
Fortunately, photojournalist Eli Wohl arrived at the scene in order to capture the horror show. At the time she pointed her camera to the social justice warrior, he was holding a bottle of vodka. Then, he suddenly licked his finger and threatened to touch the third rail.
Apparently, the man was drunk during the whole episode of decadence and leftist drama. As reported by the New York Post, the social justice warrior jumped onto the subway tracks around 1: 30 p.m. while praising equality and the social justice movement. While he was trying to kill himself –or acting as he wanted to– he claimed he was doing it over gender inequality regarding the unfair treatment of females.
Of course, a lot of people were concerned and couldn’t believe what was happening. After all, you won´t find a young man ranting about leftist talking points while trying to kill himself on the subway every day. Not even if you live in New York City.
While he was complaining about racial justice and women´s rights, frightened witnesses pleaded with the social justice warrior to get off the subway tracks. As you could imagine, he kept with his show some more minutes in order to get more attention.
According to the New York Post, Whol explained that almost every single person who was watching this horror show was pleading with him. They were asking him to come up and stop the nonsense. In addition, the photojournalist pointed out that whatever he did, he kept on mentioning different social issues, “women´s rights and racial stuff.”
While the responders tried to get the man off the subway tracks, he kept taunting them by licking his fingers while touching the third rail.
Fortunately, there was another witness who saw the deranged incident and decided to speak about it. We´re talking about comedian Michelle Collins, who tweeted about the occurrence soon after it finished.
On her tweet, she explained she saw a man on the subway tracks of New York City at Bryant Park threatening to kill himself “over the unfair treatment of women.” Then, she wrote that while she was waiting for the train, she spoke to an older woman about the incident. Apparently, this person asked if the social justice warrior was a communist. Finally, Collins finished the tweet by saying she hopes the man gets help and pointing out that “New Yorkers as per usual did not bat a lash.”
As reported by the New York Post, the social justice warrior eventually left the tracks without any injury. While some people assured he was going to commit suicide, many explained that this was nothing more than a freak show.
Lamentably, some New York City residents assured that these kinds of situations are not exactly something new. Apparently, since the first period of former president Barack Obama, some liberal cities such as this one or Los Angeles has experienced a very particular phenomenon.
In a NY first, I just saw a man on the subway tracks at Bryant Park threatening to kill himself over the unfair treatment of women.

We´re talking about demonstrations where social justice warriors manifest their disagreement with everything related to America. This way, it´s not rare to see people ranting against capitalism, and pushing the idea that socialist societies are better and that America has always been some kind of patriarchy.
While this is not the same situation that happened in the 1960s, the United States is now watching is the most pathetic reincarnation of these wannabe socialist movements, with absolutely nothing to complain about. In fact, it would be a surprise if a similar incident as the one that that happened in the New York City subway doesn’t get repeated over the next few years, especially with an effective Republican President in office.
