Racist lawyer bro Aaron Schlossberg claims to be member of New York Bar Association — he’s not

Published

on

New York City’s racist-ranter was outed this week as Aaron Schlossberg, after he lost it with Latino workers, who were speaking Spanish to each other. While the rant was bad enough, the man took it to an even greater low by threatening to call immigration agents. The outburst has since gone viral, as have the details surrounding Schlossberg’s identity and his affiliation with the Bar Association.

The attorney, who is an avid supporter of President Donald Trump, has had multiple incidents of racist outbursts. According to New York’s NewsOne, the lawyer has come under the scrutiny of Yelp reviewers, who have ripped him for his behavior. Others have called for the lawyer to be disbarred.

In fact, Gothamist announced Thursday that New York Congressman Adriano Espaillat and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. have now filed a grievance in court against the attorney.

“There is simply no place for the scourge of racism and the vulgarity of bigotry in our great nation,” the filing says. “Our country, a nation of immigrants hailing from countries around the globe, who have earnestly and diligently worked to make our nation extraordinary and worked to, as President Lincoln emphasized while quoting the Preamble to the Constitution during his first Inaugural Address, form a more perfect Union.”

It goes on to call Schlossberg’s actions part of “the egregiousness of bald-faced racism, in all of its ugliness,” and demanded that it be officially rejected.

“The audacity to profile and verbally assault innocent bystanders and customers in a public commercial location is a violation of our civil society,” the filing says. “We watched Aaron’s video and we were disgusted. We are filing this formal grievance to the State Grievance Committee because to affirm that such misconduct and behavior will not, and must never be tolerated.”

Ironically, the added attention has called into question Schlossberg’s background. His law office website advertises himself as “a member of the New York State Bar Association,” except, a phone call to the group revealed he is not.

“Mr. Schlossberg is not a member of the New York State Bar Association,” managing director Dan Weiller told NewsOne.

His website also claims that he speaks fluent Spanish, proving that the attorney might want to call ICE on Spanish speakers, but he’s happy to take their money if they seek his services.

Trump is a vampire who feeds off his own followers — and no one deserved to be drained more than Jeff Sessions

Published

on

Former senator and disgraced former Attorney General Jeff Sessions has finally come, at age 73, to what is almost certainly the end of the road for his villainous political career. On Tuesday night, the right-wing Republican who served as a U.S. senator from 1997 to 2017 lost in his comeback attempt, defeated in the Republican primary for his old seat by Tommy Tuberville, a man whose cartoonish name better suited his previous career as head football coach at Auburn. The runoff election between the two wasn't even close, with the Riverboat Gambler (a silly and self-serious nickname for Tuberville, especially when "The Tubz" was right there for the taking) taking more than 60% of the vote.

Constructed mainly of wood and steel, it was personally filmed for the movie's exterior shots by Scott, who had it "repainted dark gray and weathered extensively to imply decades of deep-space travel," said event organizers Prop Store.

Florida State Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R) is facing a backlash online after appearing Wednesday on CNN to argue against mask mandates, which are intended to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Sabatini told CNN host Brianna Keilar that mask mandates were a violation of Florida's constitution. "This is something government has never done before. We've never had government telling people what you have to do with your own face," he said.
