Idiot Lawyer in Manhattan Steps on Own Racist Dick - Goes Viral

An attorney who berated some Spanish-speaking people in a Manhattan restaurant is now paying the price for his bigotry. First, Shaun King picked it up and tweeted out a request for an ID on the lawyer. He got that right away. Now, the tweet and video of this idiot has gone viral, and has been picked up by media all over NYC and beyond.

Link to Google News Search.

People have lined up, too, to dis the moron in Google Reviews and on his Facebook page. This attorney is going to need a good PR firm right quick-like, but I don't see how he's going to recover from this soon.

1. White man who threatened to call ICE on Spanish-speaking workers busted as Trump-loving NYC attorney

White man who threatened to call ICE on Spanish-speaking workers busted as Trump-loving NYC attorney
An attorney whose anti-immigrant rant went viral was also shown screaming about “fake Jews” at a pro-Trump rally.

Aaron Schlossberg was identified as the customer who loudly complained that employees at Fresh Kitchen were speaking Spanish to customers — and he threatens to call ICE on everyone after he’s laughed out of the coffee shop.

Schlossberg, whose law office is next door to the midtown Manhattan coffee shop, boasts in his online biography that he’s fluent in Spanish and conversational in French, with a basic knowledge of Mandarin Chinese and Hebrew.

He turned up in another viral video in May 2017 after taking part in a rally in support of right-wing provocateurs Milo Yiannapoulos and Pamela Geller.

9. Oh, yes. Turning point in Aaron Schlossberg's career.

Superiors are warned that he's not house trained and presentable.

Bet these people are feeling pretty oppressed these days, no doubt yammering about suppression of speech, but it was worse in the days when the internet wasn't needed to identify the people who got themselves talked about.

He's gonna be a little famous, and not in a good way. I predict some sleepless nights.

14. Yes! How these people come out must vary

tremendously depending on situation. I wonder every time. Life in shambles, mostly unaffected,...?

Suspect business may already be adapting by learning to use an official employee laundering via time at a resort or church retreat with counseling, like (mostly right wing) politicians already do. For employees who don't trigger the grounds for immediate firing trapdoor, of course.

But, if it is, he's going to have some trouble getting new clients, I'd think, for a while.

6. He has testimonials on his webpage

Two are companies. One has closed up their site and the other has disabled their contact form. I guess someone has already notified them that their name is on a bigot's web site.

Aaron Schlossberg, Instantly Infamous Lawyer, Gave $500 To Trump Campaign

May 16, 2018 By Dave Goldiner

Aaron Schlossberg, the Manhattan lawyer who achieved instant internet infamy for confronting Spanish-speaking people in a deli, gave $500 to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

The donation to Trump was revealed by OpenSecrets.org.

Schlossberg erupted at fellow patrons and workers at a midtown Manhattan deli after he overheard them speaking in Spanish.

He threatened to call immigration agents, although there was no reason for him to suspect they weren’t Americans.

Schlossberg attended the tony Haverford School in suburban Philadelphia and Johns Hopkins University for college, according to his LinkedIn page. He also graduated from George Washington University’s law school.

18. Damn. Not even safe to hate on Mexicans anymore.

I didn't listen to the video, but the article I read said he looked around for people to be on his side and found none.

Poor guy.

19. Yeah, I'm playing my tiniest violin right now.

Based on the English spoken by one of them, I'm pretty sure they were Puerto Ricans - just as native born Americans as that asshole lawyer.

is Puerto Rican, so she's as much an American Citizen as that creepy lawyer.

23. Pretty much every language from around the World gets spoken in Manhattan.

Part of living in a big city is the fact that people come there from everywhere and bring their languages, customs, religion, and foods with them.

conservatives can't accept the variety of people who exist.

28. How does one become an attorney and not understand the 1st amendment?

I thought that in the USA you were allowed to say anything that you want? I was far from the best student in school, but I did take civics. Do lawyers have to take civics? Anyway, I'm going to go back to my Duolingo app on my iPad and keep plugging away. I need to be prepared to stop speaking English in the event that I run into some racist jackass. This seems to be happening way to often lately.
