A day after she reported it, Louisiana police reveal that the Muslim woman made up the story about being assaulted by a man wearing a Trump hat. The woman called police to say that two white men, one wearing a Trump hat, hit her several times, screamed racial slurs at her, pulled off her headbag, and stole her wallet.
KATC Lafayette police had been investigating the incident as an armed robbery and hate crime. However, Thursday afternoon police issued a terse statement, saying that she had admitted she made up the entire story. “There were no witnesses or video surveillance on the scene.”
The woman, described by police as an 18-year-old student at University of Louisiana, became the focus of stories around the world as other reports came in of assaults, graffiti and other incidents with racial overtones that are occurring across the nation. (The vast majority being attacks on white Trump supporters by Clinton supporters)
The department’s initial report indicates the offenses in the case were being investigated as armed robbery with a weapon and hate crimes.
So how many of these other alleged attacks on Muslim ‘victim jihadis’ were also fabricated?
At New York University, Muslim students reportedly awoke to discover that the door to their prayer room had been defaced with the word “Trump!”
At San Jose State University, a campus-wide alert sent to students reported that a woman had her hijab forcibly removed by a “fair skinned male” with such force that it “caused the victim to lose her balance and choked her.”
San Jose State University sent an email that a woman had her hijab ripped off by a white male with such force it choked her as she fell
