Meanwhile, in the Democratic hellhole of New York City…

A New York City subway passenger was set on fire by a fellow tire hanger on Saturday, suffering burns on 30% of his body.

Petrit Alijaj, 23, said the attacker, now identified as 49-year-old Nile Taylor, threw a cup of flaming liquid at him on Saturday as he was on his way to see the Statue of Liberty with his fiancée and cousin.

Alijaj, originally from Albania, told the New York Post that he jumped in front of his fiancée to protect her.

“I protect my fiancé with my body,” he told the New York Post.

It turns out Nile Taylor is a repeat offender!

The NYPD identified him as the same man who threw two cans of flaming liquid at subway commuters in February.

WATCH:

According to The Post, Nile Taylor was arrested a few blocks away from the crime scene at Canal Street and Renwick Street.

The New York Post reported:

The crazed lunatic who threw flaming liquid at an unsuspecting straphanger also tried to set fire to a group of commuters in a Manhattan subway station earlier this year, police said Sunday.

Nile Taylor, 49 – who is in custody on an assault charge during the fiery Saturday afternoon attack on 23-year-old Petrit Alijaj at Manhattan's Varick Street station – has now been charged in connection with a similar incident on February 5 at the West 28th Street subway station as well, police said.

Surveillance footage of the February incident shows a man now identified as Taylor. He holds two cans of flammable liquid and throws them at a group of people at the station.

No one was injured in the incident and the suspect fled and has remained on the run to date.

On Saturday around 2:45 p.m., Alijaj and his fiancée were about to get off the No. 1 train at West Houston and Varick streets, headed to the Statue of Liberty, when Taylor allegedly threw flaming liquid at him.

“I protect my fiancé with my body,” he said.

Alijaj eventually ripped off his burning shirt as his attacker fled the scene.

“I touched myself to put out the fire,” Alijaj recalls. “So while I was running, I was burning.

“The doctors said 30% of my body was burned. But I don't think it's 30%. Maybe more than 10%,” he said.
