Police in Layfayette, LA continue to conceal the identity of a Muslim woman who filed a politically and/or racially motivated false report.
The Muslim claimed that she had been attacked by two white men wearing Trump attire. The men were alleged to have attacked her with a “metal object”, ripped off her hijab, and stolen her wallet.
The 18-year-old University of Louisiana at Lafayette student, who police haven’t named, reported that two white men jumped out of a gray sedan and accosted her while she was walking near campus, striking her several times in the back with a metal object, and knocking her down. She also told police they shouted racial obscenities at her before fleeing. Police said they weren’t able to identify any suspects and that she declined medical treatment.
News organizations including ABC News and the Puff Ho were quick to report the ” crime”. The Louisiana ACLU was in high dudgeon:
. . . tying it to the anti-Muslim rhetoric of Trump’s campaign.
“We condemn this rhetoric and this behavior. We call on all Louisianians to reject anti-Muslim bigotry. Muslim Americans and residents have the same rights that we all do: to practice our religion freely and openly, to live and work without fear, and to participate equally in public life,” the ACLU of Louisiana said in a statement.
The Muslim propagandist soon changed her story, after police failed to find any evidence that a crime had occurred, nor any corroborating witnesses in what would have been a busy area at the time of the alleged attack.
She now admits fabricating the entire story.
She made up the entire story about being attacked, about her hijab being taken. There was no truth to any of it,” Lafayette Police Department spokesman Cpl. Karol Ratcliff said.
The Muslim hoaxer, whom police are refusing to identify, has been charged with a misdemeanor.
Look for this incident to appear in Hamas-CAIR’s next tally of “Islamophobic” hate crimes.
