Flare pants. My mother refused to order straight-legs for me at one point.

I hate this story.

I feel bad for the girl.

This is obviously the parents doing. Either it's their direct doing or it's their terrible parenting skills. I love my 11 year old daughter but if she came home with a crazy story like this I would have of course been very concerned and attentive...but after that I would have asked a lot of questions.

I mean imagine our parents listened to us wholesale growing up and took what we said as the absolute truth? My folks would have believed I never failed a test for not studying. The teachers all hated me! I wasn't that I didn't try hard enough, it's just too hard! And so on and so on.

Yes, we should. How'd that complete absence of consciousness work out for ya last time?

And, if you are truly interested in the topic, go up to my post 22 on this thread, click the first link & scroll down to this quote:

Quote:
Amir Taheri, the Iranian-born author and expert on Islamic issues wrote an extensive piece on the phenomenon of the hijab for the New York Post in 2003.

According to Taheri, “This fake Islamic hijab is nothing but a political prop, a weapon of visual terrorism. It is the symbol of a totalitarian ideology inspired more by Nazism and Communism than by Islam. It is as symbolic of Islam as the Mao uniform was of Chinese civilization.”
Yeah, my bold.

Muslims fear backlash over hijab hoax as school takes heat for press conference

A gen-u-wine psychologist? Well, saaaalute...

Quote:
After that revelation, psychologist Dr. Oren Amitay was among those questioning the Toronto District School Board for giving the media access to the girl.

“I’ve been involved in a number of issues where the school board, acting with the best of intentions but being driven by political correctness and virtue-signalling, has made some wrong calls,” he told CTV News Channel on Monday.
Ya think?

Quote:
Digital media strategist Mark Blevis says the story’s initial popularity, as well as its harsh turn after it was revealed to be false, shows just how quick people are to jump to politically-motivated conclusions.

“With outrage culture there’s this big movement towards piling on,” he told CTV Ottawa.
Nah...

Why Hijab Hoax Girl Lied

Quote:
Central to the whole narrative is the supposed “Islamophobic” anti-Muslim crime-wave sweeping the nation. The rumors spread and the media regurgitates the lies without any evidence to back them up. And then, after the hoaxes are debunked one by one, the media is, by that time, bored and no longer interested.
Interesting read.

Yet Another Fake ‘Islamophobic Hate Crime’

Quote:
Frightening, heartbreaking, disquieting -- and fictional. Toronto police announced Monday: “After a detailed investigation, police have determined that the events described in the original news release did not happen.” Asked if the incident was simply a hoax, police spokesman Mark Pugash declined to say. The Toronto District School Board was likewise terse: “We are very thankful that this assault did not in fact happen. We won’t be commenting further.”
More:

Quote:
There should be an investigation. Faking “anti-Muslim hate crimes” is a big business, designed to manipulate public opinion and public policy, and so when these hoaxes are exposed there need to be consequences.

What did Khawlah’s family know? Were any Islamic organizations involved? There needs to be a full and honest investigation, especially now, as Canada is clamping down on criticism of Islam in line with the “anti-Islamophobia” Motion M-103. But there will be no investigation as long as Justin Trudeau, who jumped to sympathize with Khawlah Noman but has been silent since her hoax was exposed, is prime minister. “Islamophobia” is still a grim reality of Canadian life, as far as Trudeau is concerned, and no number of hoaxes is going to change that.
Yeah, my bold.

Nails it.

Apology not accepted...

Family offers ‘sincere apologies’ for 11-year-old girl’s false hijab-cutting story

Quote:
The family of an 11-year-old girl who falsely claimed that her hijab was cut by an attacker in an incident last week that captured national attention has expressed their “sincere apologies to every Canadian.”

At the time, the family said they “assumed it to be true just like everyone else.”

The family shared a statement of apology exclusively with the Star. It came two days after the conclusion of the police investigation into the allegations, finding that the events “did not happen.”

The incident prompted a widespread backlash on social media condemning the false story.

The family said they were “deeply sorry for the pain and anger caused in the past several days.”
Not even close.

I think the family's apology is OK, given no indication that they were trying to stage the hoax. Only thing I disagree with is their promise to "support" their children--punishment seems like a better avenue.

If a white child had accused, say, a Native adult of an attack and was then found lying, you can well imagine not only the outcry but the cries for "justice" from the left the world over.

Why are we willing to allow a double standard here? The Prog "leaders" who denounced this despicable "hate crime" still haven't apologized for getting it wrong (let alone the reactionary who started this thread, despite his cries on these boards for everybody else to admit their culpability...). We get some soft soap BS that Canadians are racists anyway &, if this ever does actually happen, well, we told you so.

As far as the "support" is concerned, I agree with you. Couple hunnert hours of community service at an appropriate venue would be acceptable. There needs to be consequences. A slap on the wrist with a "Bad girl" ain't gonna cut it. Not for this level of infraction.

The family apology on its own satisfies me. The progs and their media handmaidens have way more work to do.
