WATCH: New Yorker Lets City Have It in Memorable Protest Against Ridiculous Rules on Pizza Ovens

As we reported earlier, new draft rules from the New York City Department of Environmental Protection are now going after restaurants that have coal and wood-fired pizza ovens, demanding that they have expensive emission control devices installed to cut carbon emissions by 75 percent in the name of fighting climate change. Even Elon Musk called it out, “This is utter bs. It won’t make a difference to climate change.”


NYC pizza is also one of the most iconic things in the city, and this could have a big impact on those businesses. It’s likely to put some of these places in real financial trouble if they have to decide whether or not they can afford to comply with this crazy rule, and it’s likely to do some of them in. For what? Because somehow doing this to the pizza ovens in NYC is going to have an impact on climate change? It’s ridiculous.

One guy wanted to make that point in a very colorful way, and it’s now gone viral. Scott LoBaido, who describes himself in this Twitter profile as “a Patriot- Artist-Activist,” decided that he was going to send a message to the folks in City Hall and throw his own “New York Pizza Party.” He threw that party right outside the gates, right in front of a police booth, which is always there to protect the building. LoBaido didn’t mince words. He ripped city officials on their priorities when they are focused on this kind of thing.

Warning for graphic language:

The woke-ass idiots who run this city are doing everything in their power to destroy it. We have naked men with their titties bouncing around all over this city yesterday [for Pride celebrations] in public, in front of children. We have the most violent raging crime rate ever. We are being invaded by illegal immigrants who are being treated way better than our homeless veterans, our teachers, and first responder heroes who were fired — and still not compensated — because they didn’t take the Fauci injection.


LoBaido spoke about how the city schools were failing kids, and he chastised the city officials who were “afraid of pizza?”

“The world used to respect New Yorkers as tough, thick-skinned, and gritty,” LoBaido said. So he was throwing this “New York Pizza Party.” “Give us pizza, or give us death!” LoBaido shouted. He then started tossing pieces of pizza over the gates at City Hall.

The police ultimately did stop him, and then they issued him a summons for what he had done.

What was ironic is that he got a summons for tossing the pizza, yet the naked people in front of children around the Pride event were just cool with the city. LoBaido probably got more punishment than all manner of violent criminals in the city with that one summons, given that it’s New York City. Most on social media cheered his action, although some bemoaned the fate of the poor pizza, which they would have liked to eat.


A Brooklyn pizza joint thanked him for his actions.
