Brooklyn dad demonstrates how to handle pro-Hamas protesters blocking the street, emerges as hero


As pro-Hamas protesters continue their antics of blocking traffic to unsuccessfully drum up support for a ceasefire in the war with Israel, angry motorists are taking matters into their own hands.

One driver in New York City had enough as his path to Brooklyn was blocked by demonstrators who seemed to have the freedom to obstruct traffic with no immediate consequences. More than 300 protesters were eventually arrested in the Big Apple Monday.

Outbound traffic at the Holland Tunnel and the side entrances in Manhattan to the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg bridges were blocked by the protesters Monday, earning the sympathy of none of the frustrated commuters.

But one father emerged as a hero when a video caught the moment he stepped out of his car when reasoning with the demonstrators to move out of the way proved unsuccessful.

“You’re disrupting traffic!” he angrily told those near his open window. “You can’t do that! It’s against the law!”

When that proved pointless, the unidentified man stepped out of his car to persuade the demonstrators differently.

“I’m gonna have to start throwing fists at y’all, I’m not gonna run you over… get away from my car,” he said as he shoved those standing directly in front of his car.

“Get away from my car, I have a daughter in Brooklyn!” He shouted as the demonstrators held their positions.

Eventually, he got back into his car and began driving forward, warning those who continued to block him, “Get out of the way, I have to get home.”

“Cops eventually started unlinking the pro-Palestine demonstrators at the Brooklyn Bridge, who strapped their arms together with metal tubes, concrete and tires in their latest attempt to demand a ceasefire in Israel’s invasion of the Gaza Strip,” Daily Mail reported.

“Officers rounded up the cuffed protesters and lined them up in single file before hoisting them onto a MTA bus to be processed,” the outlet reported. “NYPD Chief John Chell said 325 people were arrested on Monday after blocking the bridges about 9.40am, until they were cleared out by 11.15am.”

“In lieu of summons, many protestors will face misdemeanor charges with a desk appearance ticket,” he said.

Meanwhile, the frustrated father trying to get to Brooklyn made it through the human barricade and earned the admiration of those on social media.
