NYC Pride Turns Violent — Attendees Brutally Attack Elderly Hot Dog Vendor, Clash With Police

By Cassandra Fairbanks

New York City’s Pride festivities devolved into chaos and violence on Sunday evening, as attendees clashed with police and left an elderly hot dog vendor bloodied and injured.

The attackers claimed that the vender had used a “slur” to justified multiple people assaulting him. It is unclear what the slur allegedly was, or if it actually happened.

“An elderly hot dog seller in the city’s embattled Washington Square Park had a busted lip, bloody nose and was seen bleeding from his head after being punched in the face several times by a woman,” the Daily Mail reports. “The man was seen standing next to his food cart when he was suddenly caught off-guard, punched in the head and nearly knocked off his feet.”

As the vendor attempted to run away, he was chased by a mob of people until police intervened and surrounded him.

Police also had to deploy pepper spray earlier in the evening after the crowd attempted to breech metal barricades around the Greenwich Village park.

Tensions were already high between NYC Pride and the New York Police Department, as members of law enforcement were banned from participating in their parade until at least 2025.

At least eight people were arrested during the chaos.

“A 23-year-old woman allegedly threw a water bottle at police and bit a lieutenant; a 20-year-old woman allegedly threw water at police. They were arrested for assault, criminal possession of a weapon and resisting arrest, police said,” PIX 11 reports. “Additionally, a 29-year-old man and 30-year-old man allegedly slapped lieutenants, officials said. They were given desk appearance tickets and charged with obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest, the NYPD said.”

Pride marches became an annual event in 1970 to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall uprising, which started after a police raid on a Manhattan gay bar.

    i may be wrong, but thought i heard a man say “suck my d**k”. if that was the vendor, is that a slur? i think not, but anything triggers these leftists to violence

    I just spent a few weeks in NYC and van confirm this stuff has been happening daily there. “Protester” have been taking over public parks, screaming at people to repeat their rhetoric and threatening violence if passerbys don’t comply. My wife and I were nearly assaulted for refusing to wish one of them a “happy birthday”. It’s ridiculous and just violent thugs asserting force over the spineless city.

    Having lived in China for many years, and previously been a large critic of the authoritarian government, I’m honestly starting to have compassion for that way of life as twisted as it sounds. At least I, as a law abiding member of society, can walk around there in the inner city at 3 in the morning and feel perfectly safe. I believe the American ideal of Liberty is the greatest political philosophy ever created by man, but it is time for libertarians and conservatives to wake up and realize that those times are gone. Franklin’s quote of a “Republic if you can keep it” was true, and I believe it’s time to admit that we could not keep it.

    At this point, the only way forward is a right wing authoritarianism is the only way out. To what degree authoritarianism is to be used is the real debate. Save for that, I will strongly consider moving back to China in the coming years. I don’t want to, but if the choice is Democrat authoritarianism or CCP authoritarianism, frankly the CCP is better. A sad state of affairs. I dream of a society where the government just leaves us all alone, but it seems so far away from where we are that getting there without an authoritarian right is impossible.

    Given the track record of these people, i doubt that it actually happened.
