A gay man was brutally assaulted on a Brooklyn train by a hateful degenerate spewing homophobic slurs as reported by the Daily News:
"You're a f*cking f*ggot and are probably f*cking the guy right next to you," the assailant seethed, before repeatedly punching the 29-year-old victim in the face on a Manhattan-bound C train about 9 a.m. Thursday, police said. * * * "N*ggers like me take care of f*ggots like you," the unhinged assailant said before spitting in the victim's face and punching him two more times, according to cops.
Hate crimes have dramatically risen in the five boroughs over the last year.
I've lived up and down the East Coast, including 15 years in NYC, and travelled repeatedly back and forth across the country, and the worst homophobia I've personally encountered in my life on a regular basis was in the Big Apple; it's hardly the progressive city many espouse it to be.
