Thanks Kendra!
Y'all know that's fake, right?
I originally said it had to be performance art or something like that. It's over the top even for this scum puppy. So in a roundabout way, I was asking if it was fake ;)
My sleep deprived didn't pick up on that :oops: :bag:

Sorry I'm going to have to run, looks like his FB page is a hoot. He's crying like an author who just got a bad review :roll:
Edit: Could this be a spoof page and not the real deal?
I think it may be a spoof page. Somewhere yesterday there was a link to his FB page, and when i clicked on it, it said "sorry this content is unavailable." I think he took it down.

Here's the link, which is titled The Law Office of Aaron M Schlossberg Esq PLLC

He got in both "Law Office" and "Esq." What a putz. (Well, we already knew that.)

Also, I read yesterday that he didn't even have an office there. He just used the address, got his mail there, had his phone routed through there, and used the conference room.
Corporate Suites told The Post that it had terminated an agreement to provide meeting space, mail handling and telephone services to Schlossberg.

Yes, this new era makes one discover a new appreciation of karma when it bites the gluteals of nasty over-privileged Trumpistas, like Herr Schlossberg.

Reactions are telling. The Fresh Market customers that were the target of Schlossberg's racist rant laughed at him and filmed him. When Schlossberg was confronted by media, he hid behind an umbrella, called 911 to whine, and ran away. :rotflmao: :bag: :rotflmao:

Details of Schlossberg's 2009 Philadelphia arrest.
The Midtown lawyer caught on camera hurling racist insults at Spanish-speaking restaurant workers was once busted for threatening a cop at a Phillies game, according to a report Friday.

Aaron Schlossberg, 42, allegedly barked, “You’re f—king dead” at a police officer who was responding to complaints about him at the sporting event in 2009, according to Philly Voice.

Fans had reported Schlossberg for “disturbing other patrons and refuse[ing] to stop” at a game against the Atlanta Braves on April 5, 2009, according to court documents cited by the website.

When a security guard told the hothead lawyer he would be booted from the game, he allegedly lashed out at a female cop, according to the paper.

Can't watch the whole thing. Did he step out and thank the crowd for showing up? Asking for a friend...

To be perfectly consistent, Schlossbeg should be insisting everyone on the island of Manhattan speak Algonkian or the Mohegan language.

I suspect he would objections to that as well.

It is a fake page that posted this tweet
The Law Office of Aaron M Schlossberg
Yesterday at 3:34pm ·
I sincerely thank those few nice people who supported me in such a hard time. Especially, Mr. David Duke, Mr. Alex Jones, Senator Steve King and Mr. David Dennison. You have restored my faith in humanity.
The Law Office of Aaron M Schlossberg
13 mins ·
As many of you had already guessed, this isn’t his page. I created it as a social-experiment motivated by two academic and two personal factors:
1. Curiosity over people’s reaction to a violent and openly racist individual.
2. Curiosity as to the nature of his potential supporters.
3. Personal feeling of disgust for his behavior.
4. Frustration over his sneaky disappearance from Facebook on the very day of infamy.

I thank everyone for their inputs, positive and negative. I apologize for trying to incite your reactions through different posts. These were all done with genuine curiosity. Hope you will all forgive me.

I have also hurt the feelings of Aaron’s many supporters who direct messaged me on this page. I responded to most of them with mean hateful comments about their appearance or their economic status. His supporters felt insulted, hurt or offended. My intention was only to let them experience the sting of hate when you are on the receiving end.

I hope everyone understands that no position of superiority exists permanently. It is dynamic and always relative. Every single nationality and race will be placed on that receiving end at one point or the other. In my travels, I have seen the cycle of racism consuming communities, turning them from victims to predators and back.

I will be shutting down this page soon. I learned a lot of things in the past two days, about the society and about myself. I realized is that if you wear the skin of a racist for too long, you end up turning into one. If you are interested, you can follow my twitter persona for updates on projects like this or for my inane thoughts and realizations.

https://twitter .com/Glavsetsurvivor <I broke this link. see below>

Hope Aaron learns his lesson.

Before leaving, I earnestly request everyone that you don’t resort to violence. He needs to be shunned and shamed for his actions but not physically harmed. Violence is not a solution for anything. Violence and hate will turn you into an Aaron. Don’t be an Aaron.

ABC 7
Manhattan attorney behind race-fueled restaurant rant issues apology

A Manhattan lawyer whose race-fueled tirade inside a Midtown restaurant went viral has apologized and said he respects and appreciates "the remarkable diversity" New York City offers.

Attorney Aaron Schlossberg posted the message on his Twitter and LinkedIn pages, saying he is not racist and is "deeply sorry" for his actions.

"To the people I insulted, I apologize," he wrote. "Seeing myself online opened my eyes - the manner in which I expressed myself is unacceptable and is not the person I am. I see my words and actions hurt people, and for that I am deeply sorry. While people should be able to express themselves freely, they should do so calmly and respectfully. What the video did not convey is the real me. I am not racist. One of the reasons I moved to New York is precisely because of the remarkable diversity offered in this wonderful city. I love this country and this city, in part because of immigrants and the diversity of cultures immigrants bring to this country. Again, my sincerest apologies to anyone and everyone I hurt. Thank you."

Lawyer caught on video in anti-immigrant rant apologizes: 'I am not racist'

https://abcnews.go.com/US/lawyer-caught ... itter_abcn
"To the people I insulted, I apologize," Aaron Schlossberg, 42, said in the mea culpa. "Seeing myself online opened my eyes -- the manner in which I expressed myself is unacceptable and is not the person I am."

:snippity:

"While people should be able to express themselves freely, they should do so calmly and respectfully," he said. "What the video did not convey is the real me. I am not a racist."

He said one of the reasons he moved to New York is because of its "remarkable diversity offered in this wonderful city."

"I love this country and this city, in part because of immigrants and the diversity of cultures immigrants bring to this country," he said. "Again my sincerest apologies to anyone and everyone I hurt."
Hard to take this too seriously because there are so many videos of him engaging in this behavior over a period of years.

Of course he's a racist. Of course this is the way he is. He's done it before. Captured on video.

Note to people issuing public apologies: "This is not me" or "This is not who I am" have no business in your apology. It is you. It is who you are. Say you're sorry. Say you've learned some hard truths about yourself. Be sincere. But don't take back the apology by making the specious claim that you shouldn't be judged by your actions.

The little snot has learned nothing. He's surely watched videos of himself being charming to foreigners, there are several from which to choose.

Own it, Aaron. At least you'd earn a soupçon of respect for that.
