Here’s what happened: Inside a Macy’s at a Connecticut shopping mall, a Muslim woman in a hijab overheard an unidentified woman talking on her speaker phone saying:
“Muslim women’s husbands force them to wear head wraps,” and then something about “losing her keys and not being able to find anyone who could speak English” and “you immigrants are taking over” after the Muslim hijabi woman sarcastically repeated what the woman on the phone had said.
That was it. Seriously. Now CAIR wants to turn an obvious free speech issue into a “racially-motivated” (What ‘race’ is Islam?) hate crime and police are taking this hoax seriously. And they wonder why so many people in America hate Muslims.
