Against an 11 year old??? Much better that she have to personally stand up and issue a straight no excuses apology. First in front of her classmates, then on television. The humiliation will be (probably already has been) more than sufficient punishment, plus it will bring home the bit about taking responsibility for ones actions.

Of course in my era her backside would be somewhat redder as well, but that's no longer politically acceptable.

(The headline should read: A hijabi hoax that fooled Progressive Canada)

A hijabi hoax that fooled Canada

Quote:
There was obviously more to it than met the eye, but not for our bleeding-heart, guilt-ridden politicians, hungry for the Muslim vote bank in some pockets of Toronto.

Within hours, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appeared with his Muslim Citizenship Minister Ahmed Hussen to validate the yet unsubstantiated story of a Muslim being attacked because of her religion.

Toronto Mayor John Tory and Premier Kathleen Wynne, both facing elections, joined the chorus of condemnation, without waiting for any police confirmation about whether a crime had been committed.

Now Toronto Police say the alleged attack on an 11-year-old girl wearing a hijab last week was a hoax. In other words, the hijabi girl and her brother simply made up the story.
My bold.

Let's call a spade a spade. They did not "simply make up the story". They outright lied.

It's truly unfortunate that she's only 11 & can't be charged.

Since You Asked

Quote:
No suspect in custody, and only the hours old claims of children, but "Islamophobia" was cited as the motive. How did that happen?

It happened because your industry is sick with agenda journalism, wherein every story is framed for partisan advantage. Shame on you all. Hacks.

Nails it. Comments probably offensive to SJW's.

An attacker did not cut her hijab, police say. But why did the TDSB let the tearful 11-year-old face the cameras?

Quote:
I don’t believe this was any grand conspiracy by the girl’s parents or that anyone else “put her up to it”, though certainly her parents, community, the TDSB, our whorish politicians and the ever reliable media enabled her. She simply sought to take advantage of what she has been taught: Muslims are always the victims of Canada’s inherently “Islamophobic” society. When you teach entitlement victimhood it should come as no surprise that everyone from kids to race baiting grifters will be quick to take advantage of it. Look no further than Motion M103, the effort by Justin’s Muslim handlers to enforce sharia law and criminalize Canadians who criticize the cult of Islam.

This message was reinforced by the statements made by Trudeau, Wynne and Tory once news broke that they had been gamed by an 11 year old girl. Each took the opportunity to remind Canadians that they are racists. None condemned the hoax and none will ever condemn the divisive and dangerous program of privileged victimhood that perversely educated the little hoaxer and that they enthusiastically use to scam ethnic votes.
That's funny... this phony hate crime...

Quote:
You can almost smell the journalism...
CBC News is not naming the 11-year-old because she is a minor. Police spokesperson Mark Pugash said the girl who reported the incident will not face any legal consequences.
Don't worry, Muslim community... CBC still has your back...
Amira Elghawaby, a human rights advocate based in Ottawa, said she was saddened to learn that the girl's story was not true, adding it will likely only serve to "embolden those who do hold discriminatory views of Muslims."
Victimhood forever.
Links' bold.

Right. 'Cause non-Muslims are the issue here...

I am wondering about the attention seeking narrative that the Lamestream is using to try and divert attention away from the fact that they were so gleefully sucked in by the original tale.

Does it not seem more likely that an 11 year old who is different would be teased and taunted? In her case the difference was the Hijab. Since her parents demanded that she wear it, and her environment made wearing the uncomfortable even unbearable, did she solve the problem by cutting it off then concoct the story to deflect her parents anger?

Possibly he hated wearing it, but even for an 11-year-old that would seem like a terminally short-sighted strategy--would work only until the next morning.

Don't know her school, but in the one my son attended, teasing and taunting gets you booted out on your ass with a suspension almost immediately.

Perhaps but teachers cannot always be watching and certainly taunting goes hand in hand with the age bracket. An unfortunate age in many ways as kids know they can be hurt, but do not understand that they are hurting others, or maybe just don't care. Thank God most of us grow beyond that.

OTOH if the young gal was a chronic attention seeker, why on earth did the school authorities and/or her parents not instantly recognize the ploy and prevent it from being reported to the police or if protocol demanded at least include a strong disclaimer.

eMacMan, where did you find this bit of info? Or are you speculating? From my personal exposure to muslim culture, the hijab has not been seen as something forced upon a young girl; rather, within their cultural norms, it is seen as a symbol of maturity (typical begun to be work at puberty), and embraced, not shunned.

We should be conscious of interpreting matters through our own cultural perspective lens.

I thought it was clear that the entire post was speculative, and of course whether it is forced or a matter of choice depends largely on the parents and local community.

That said I still see flaws in the attention seeking narrative.

There are enough articles, even in the Toronto Star, where girls speak out against enforced wearing of headwear, so your speculation is not unreasonable.

Yup, I have seen this frequently on many sites in the west as well.

I can certainly remember my mom forcing me to wear long underwear when the temps dropped below ~25°C. Never mind that the dominant culture thought long underwear was for sissies only, that I found it uncomfortable, that it was only three blocks to school, and that we generally ran those three blocks and did not notice the cold at all.

So yes parents can and do force unwanted attire on their kids, regardless of their religious outlook.
