Hate crimes have been steadily on the rise since President Donald Trump took office in 2016.
Though quick to denounce actors critical of him or politicians who disagree with his views, one group that President Trump is always hesitant to criticize are actual Nazis who believe the President shares their views about white supremacy.
One such Nazi felt so emboldened that he thought it would be a good idea to stand in the middle of New York City's Union Square to spread his vile beliefs. Boy, was he wrong.
The entire incident was captured in an immensely satisfying video:
New Yorkers Unite like Avengers to Egg A NAzi Jovi Val At Union Square MAY DAY 2019 (unedited) youtu.be
The Nazi, also known as Jovanni Valle (or Jovi Val), was arguing with several bystanders about LGBTQ rights (guess where he stands on the issue).
Then, out of nowhere, a man standing several feet away turns and pelts the nazi with an egg!
The Nazi tries to retaliate by tackling the egger, but several other New Yorkers quickly joined in the tussle, throwing the Nazi to the ground and stealing his flag.
The first man continued to egg the Nazi as he pathetically tried to get his flag back.
Twitter was absolutely in love with the footage.
Say what you will about New Yorkers, they don't tolerate bigotry in their city.
Many people couldn't help but also note that, while the passersby responded to him appropriately (anger, disgust), the fact that a Nazi felt emboldened enough to speak in public is a bad sign.
This guy must have never been to Union Square before. It's NOT a safe place to be a Nazi.
Well done, New Yorkers! You may be many things, but Nazi eggers are among the best.
