In their quest to drive racial discord in America, the radical left has employed the “Gentle Giant” strategy in the death of Jordan Neely, a vagrant who was allegedly acting in a threatening manner aboard a New York City subway train — while there is video footage of Neely being restrained, it’s not clear what events led up to that moment.
Neely, a homeless man who had been arrested 44 times on charges like assault and disorderly conduct, is black, while the 24-year-old former U.S. Marine who restrained him in a chokehold was white — the unidentified Marine was held briefly before being released.
In an effort to advance a political agenda, videos of Neely doing Michael Jackson impersonations on the subway in an apparent attempt to earn money were pushed on social media by those who hate America. People like U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., claimed Neely was “lynched” even though a black man helped restrain him.
He was 30 years old.
Black men deserve to grow old—not be lynched on a Subway because they were having a mental health crisis.
Jordan deserved better. Accountability now. pic.twitter.com/aX5qcryrbx

The media was all in on promoting the narrative, of course:
Jordan Neely, 30, was a Michael Jackson impersonator who performed for years in Times Square and on the subway. A neighbor later said his dancing helped him in his struggle with mental health pic.twitter.com/jgkvnyoqTj

By the way, the video Pressley shared was from 2012 according to Twitter’s Community Notes:
Wow- I’m now having a huge appreciation for Community Notes!
Ayanna Pressley just got her ass CHECKED.
Before, the left was able to get away with their lies and false narratives about fake hate crimes by silencing the truth. Now they’re gonna get burned by the truth. LOVE IT! pic.twitter.com/OZJUPcp0Z6

Fellow squad member U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., declared that Neely was “murdered” because he “was houseless and crying for food.” This being the same cabal that painted Michael Brown as a gentle 300 lb. giant, glancing over the fact that he was shot dead while violently attacking a Ferguson police officer he outweighed by a hundred pounds — this assessment coming from a Justice Department led by Eric Holder.
As always, there appears to be much more to the story as conservative commentator Matt Walsh noted.
“The media is calling Neely a ‘Michael Jackson impersonator’ in their headlines but according to this he stopped the MJ routine and became a belligerent vagrant nearly a decade ago,” Walsh tweeted, sharing a snippet of a nine-year-old Reddit post about Neely.
Independent journalist Andy Ngô also shared the Reddit post.
A post on Reddit from nine years ago warns the public about #JordanNeely. The man’s death after being restrained by passengers has ignited BLM rage because one of the passengers involved appears to be white. https://t.co/H2x7htqD8J pic.twitter.com/eHKarkHgj7

“Used to be all cool, dancing to MJ in the subway train, but as of late he’s become a maniac.,” the Oct. 2013 post begins. “Sometime in late Spring/early Summer I saw him in the train, his radio f*cked up and he was angry as f*ck, cursing and bad mouthing commuters screaming ‘What the f*ck are you looking at? Dont f*cking look at me!’ Totally didn’t expect him to act as such.”
“Ever since that day he’s just been a scary dude to me. He doesn’t dress up anymore. No more dancing…just asks for money. Occasionally shouting obscenities,” the person continued. “Today, however was odd. Sometime in the morning, on my way to school I’m sitting on the bench and out of nowhere hear someone just going off, cussing up a storm. It was the MJ dude. Everyone besides this guy was quite. A MTA crew was there but did nothing and just let him continue blow his gasket. Train arrives and I just get in the car he’s not in because I’m sure as f*ck not getting in the same car as him. Dude didn’t even wait till he got inside the train. I was scared for the people next to him out of fear that some one was gonna fall on the tracks.
“Just avoid the guy at all costs, try not to look at him at all. Stay safe.”
There is also a video of a man pushing a woman into a train that is purported to be Neely, but that cannot be confirmed. A 2011 video showed Joey Boots, of Howard Stern fame, being physically attacked by a Michael Jackson impersonator he was agitating, this too was alleged to be Neely.
While there has been a national outcry over Neely’s death, it wasn’t that long ago that a black man executed a white man in downtown St. Louis that was summarily dismissed as soon as it was reported.
Remember when a black man executed a white homeless man who was just sitting on the street and there was national outrage? Me neither, in fact no one even hear about it. Why? The Jordan Neely outrage is manufactured.pic.twitter.com/yx4mmDKm9i

Media should’ve just gone the Trayvon Martin route & used a picture from when he was 8 years old.
