The hijab hoax was a damaging incident

Quote:
The fact that a child has apparently been thrust into these highly political debates – entailing entrenched hatred, bigotry and the victimhood narrative – is a matter of grave concern. While we still don’t know exactly what happened, the incident suggests even young children can learn the “us vs. them” script. The mantra of Muslim victimhood is powerful enough that this child perhaps became a willing player in something odious. What is she hearing at home? What is she hearing at school?
Bold mine.

Precisely.

More:

Quote:
In fact, from one end of the country to the other, expressions of sympathy have poured in from Canadian politicians and the public. This sympathy serves many strategic purposes. Islamist advocates seek to garner more support for liberals who would afford them special attention as the most harassed of religious groups.
Yep.

Further:

Quote:
This hoax is as damaging as the incident it pretended to be. While young Khawlah cannot be held responsible for her actions, the two adults involved should be.
Nails it.

And one of the reasons why a simple apology is unacceptable to me. Lifting a chocolate bar from the corner store is one thing. Fabricating a lie that garners international attention is quite another.

I still see no reason to suspect it was a hoax perpetrated at the adult level. Regrettable and perhaps borne from a prog-infested sewer of bad ideas.

Intentionally perpetrated? Perhaps not.

But where did the seed for the idea come from in the first place? It wasn't children...

I recall two blacks I worked with in Denver. "G" could not make it through the day without claiming to have suffered some sort of racial taunt or insult.

"C" on the other hand liked to tell the story of going to Duffy's on St Patrick's Day and having a waiter hovering at his shoulder seeming to want him to hurry up and get out. He commented: "I thought it was the first time I encountered prejudice since leaving Houston 5 years ago. Then I looked around and noticed they were doing the same thing to everyone. They were just trying to clear space for the people waiting outside."

Sometimes people are looking to take offense even where none is intended. Perhaps the girls parents fall into this category. Remove that filter and they certainly should and hopefully would have waited for the dust to clear before talking to the press.

Questions, questions, questions...

4. But the question then becomes: why did they obscure this woman’s face as well? She’s not the mother. Who is she. Why don’t they want her image shown?

Quote:
5. Could it be because she is an executive in Kathleen Wynne’s very own Liberal riding association?

Hijab Hate Crime Hoax in Toronto Is Latest of Many

Quote:
The girl will not face charges for her false report — it would be ridiculous to charge a child with a crime — but it is just the latest example of how false hate crimes can stir up controversy and divide people, even at the highest levels of government. Similar false claims have been filed in the United States.
Muslim Derangement Syndrome in Canada

Quote:
In Canada, any Muslim can perpetrate a bogus “hate crime” with complete impunity. Likewise, Muslims can stab police officers and attack a 75-year-old grandmother and Canadian authorities will slap a gag order on any hint of Islamic motivation. This is a symptom of Muslim Derangement Syndrome (MDS).

Those afflicted with MDS welcome any Muslim, even if they cannot verify background and even if the Muslim has been deported from the United States. MDS induces complete credulity over Muslim hoaxes but when Muslims attack innocent victims the MDS types lapse into a state of willful ignorance over possible motives. When anyone invokes Islam as a motive, MDS victims break into uncontrolled utterances of “Islamophobia,” “racism,” and “diversity is our strength.”

I'm tired of hearing about diversity being a strength. Let the progs pick a baseball team based on diversity, while I pick a team based on ability and the needs of my team. Would be sheer luck if they won a single game.

Every time I hear that phrase I want to hurl in technicolor...

So, what's the thrust here?

I should be writing more popular, viewer friendly posts? Something else?

Hey, CM, it's been more than 6 weeks since you put your gullibility on display.

Any Muslims attacked recently by Canadians? Haven't read anything on MotherCorpse or MotherJones. Have you? Nothing from Mr Dressup or his cadre of misinformed idiots eiher, although he's probably still celebrating his wildly successful India trip...
