Daniel Penny Silences Al Sharpton, Says He Had Moral Obligation to Step In: ‘I Was Protecting Minorities’

U.S. Marine veteran Daniel Penny has silenced civil rights grifter Al Sharpton by setting the record straight in a new interview with Fox News.

Last month, Penny restrained a deranged homeless man who was threatening passengers on the New York City Subway.

Unfortunately, the man, Jordan Neely, died following the incident.

Despite evidence from video footage online and eyewitness statements, Sharpton, radical Democrats, and their allies in the corporate media have claimed that Penny “murdered” Neely.

Sharpton even shamelessly pushed claims that Penny was a “vigilante” who “executed” Neely on the Subway.

However, Penny said he had a moral obligation to act because the other passengers were terrified.

He told Fox that “the majority of the people on that train that I was protecting were minorities.”

He said he internalized the message of late civil rights activist Eli Wiesel who spoke to his high school class about the Holocaust.

“One of the overall messages that he talked about was that good people did nothing,” Penny said.

“It’s a lesson that I carry with me to this day.

“If Neely had carried out his threats, he would have killed somebody.

“Between stops, you’re trapped on the train, and there’s nowhere to go.

“You can try to move away, but you can only do so much on a packed car.

“I was scared,” he revealed.

“I looked around, and I saw older women and children, and they were terrified.”

“The majority of the people on that train that I was protecting were minorities, so it definitely hurts a lot to be called that,” Penny said about being smeared as a racist by Sharpton.

“It has obviously taken a toll.”

“It was a little bit humiliating I would say but, I mean, it is what it is,” he said about being perp-walked.

“That’s how things are playing out.”

“I was working two jobs as a student,” Penny said about people who donated to his cause.

“My family doesn’t come from money, so I’m incredibly thankful for this fund and all the people who have supported me.”

He said the Neely family is in his prayers:

“They’ve been in my prayers. I feel for their loss,” he told Fox News Digital.

“Like Jordan, they’re also victims of a failed system.”

Meanwhile, witnesses who were on the Subway and saw the incident firsthand have refuted the false narrative being peddled by Sharpton and the media.

“It was self-defense, and I believe in my heart that he saved a lot of people that day,” a witness said.

She recalled Neely ranting, “I don’t care if I have to kill an F, I will.

“I’ll go to jail, I’ll take a bullet.”

Steven Raiser, Penny’s lawyer said:

“Danny could have went to the corner of the train and waited for Neely to come to him.

“But it might have been too late for the little girl that was sitting in the middle of the train that Neely was screaming at.”
