That shocking rise in hate crimes

A Muslim student appeared in a New York court on Thursday to admit to inventing a story that she was harassed by Donald Trump supporters on the subway.

Yasmin Seweid, 18, told police that a group of drunken white men yelled “Donald Trump!” at her, and called her a terrorist. She wrote an emotional Facebook post, saying it had been “dehumanizing”, and provided police with a description of the suspects.

Inconsistencies in the tale were put down to trauma.

But then, last week, her strict Muslim parents reported that she had disappeared from her home – only to reappear the following day. Questioned by the police, she broke down and admitted that she had made the story up to cover for being out late with her friends.

I never did bother to find out what Amanduh thought about this but no doubt we’ll be told that there’s a real fundamental truth in the original tale. You know, like the gang rape on campus in Virginia and so on….

  1. I’ve stopped reading the Graun and the BBC, but no one seems to allege that there’s been a sustained rise here, do they?

  2. You know, like the gang rape on campus in Virginia and so on….

    It took hundreds of years of sustained blood libels before we came up with the Holocaust. The Left seems determined to cram all that into a few dozen years.

    They hate us. They really do.

    To all intents and purposes, there is no such thing as a hate crime from the White community.

  3. So many of these “hate crimes” have been debunked it’s ridiculous. Same with Brexit when the Remoaner media started running more stories on hate crimes to make it look like the actual number that were occurring had risen.

    I’m not quite sure how it’s meant to work. Because the number who voted for Brexit turned out to be 52% rather than 48% as predicted then racists suddenly exist where they didn’t before?

  4. Identity politics has created rafts of victims just waiting for a suitable crime to attach themselves to, some get impatient…

  5. As Mal Reyolds points out, very, very few of these allegations ever stand up. My default view now, whenever I see one (and yes, I’m looking at you Nadiya Hussain…) is ‘File under #neverhappened’.

    I note that Ms. Hussain has a new book out next month that needs a bit of publicity. Not that this could be in any way connected to this appalling racist incident that really happened, splashed all over the papers and social media for millions to see.

    Perhaps I’m being too cynical but like you Julia, my first reaction is to call bullshit on these “racist” events. You’d think that all the racist graffiti and swastikas that keep appearing everywhere – according to Twitter – would be supported by photographic evidence (nearly everyone has a camera phone), or at least corroborated by someone else. You’d also think that given the upsurge in the reporting of these incidents, they would be a corresponding rise in these cases going to court and this we’re not seeing.

    I suspect that people tend to post these stories for a bit of virtue signalling or attention, although in Ms. Seweid’s case, she was covering up for being bad muslim. Whatever the reason, no one is going to believe them when it does really happen.

  7. I think that Mark Zuckerberg will need to hire quite a few people in his battle againsts fake news.

    Yasmin Seweid will be the archetype of the successful candidate.

    Incidentally, I’ve just found “Christmas Greetings from All Your Friends at the FSB” in my inbox. Anyone else getting this?

  8. The internal logic of this, of course, is that by falsely reporting a “hate crime”, the perpetrator can be regarded as attempting to stir up hatred for the white community. Which would be, in itself, be a hate crime. And should be prosecuted.

  9. What would be a suitable punishment for false hate crime accusations?

    How about being kicked down a flight of stairs.

  10. Two stories:

    1)

    Last year a three monitor scroll facebook status went viral. A women emoted and raged about ‘creeping racism’ and ‘anger’ etc. The story she provided was heavy on intricate detail and projection. She was white by the way. Claimed a man who was late and frustrated said something racist about the train announcer (who by their accent was not british) and then assaulted her with his umbrella.

    When you stripped away the obsessively self-centered approach to events and obvious projection, I read it as:

    ‘I got on the train, this guy was angry because he was late and the train was held. He swore and threw his umbrella in frustration, part of which clipped me on the arm’

    An entirely boring and unremarkable experience in London.

    2) This is the best

    Another facebook status that found its way shared onto my newsfeed concerned another Lononder and woman.

    She wrote that she was sitting on a bus, on the morning after the Scottish Independence referendum.She expressed her experiences as indicative of rising english bigotry and intolerance, and because of what happened to her (as you will find out) the general tolerance of such barbarous incidents.

    So this woman was sitting on a London bus, morning of Scottish Ref Result, sitting behind a couple. The man in front of her said to his partner:

    ‘That’s put the jocks back in their box’

    So.

    She launched into full shrieking mode at this guys unrepentant fascism or something, hitting him with a verbal barrage for having the temerity of saying something tame to his partner.

    She used this an example of creeping english bigotry.

    But wait, what’s more! She said what happened next is a sign that its becoming normalised.

    Because of her tirade against this man, the bus driver ejected her to the applause of the other passengers who did not intervene to save her from the consequences of opposing fascism or something.

    She put all this up on facebook, and expected her brain dead left mates to agree that she was the victim of something and hearing one man refer to scotland as ‘the jocks’ is indicative of something more.

    Rather than reading this as an example of a mentalist lefty who is has appalling manners, no social sense and obviously deranged who deserved being kick off the bus for abusing a man for passing a rather tame opinion about another nation’s independence referendum.

  11. I went on a date with a Hungarian girl in the summer. For some reason we met up in Bermondsey and not knowing the area that well, ended up in a reasonable looking pub.

    We got some drinks and sat outside. There was a drunk on the next table who tried to engage us in conversation – being good Londoners we ignored him completely. This was on a Monday night.

    Eventually we were talking about Brexit – I was expressing my doubts that it would result in repatriation of Europeans currently living here.

    The drunk interjected again, asking me if I was a psychic who knew the future. I couldn’t really understand him but he appeared to be annoyed at my suggestion that no one would be sent back hope. I think.

    Anyway, we moved tables and the evening carried on. But I think that sort of unremarkable incident was the sort of thing that people with an axe to grind get wound up about. Ultimately it came from a man who was so drunk on a Monday night that I couldn’t understand him.

    But if I’d been so minded I could have worked it up into a “racist incident”, perhaps with an added bit about me standing up to him and everyone in the pub applauding and giving me $100% notes.

  12. “Yasmin Seweid, 18, told police that a group of drunken white men yelled “Donald Trump!” at her, and called her a terrorist.”

    Maybe they all had very bad eyesight and it was mistaken identity.

    Very bigoted of her to be so insensitive to the differently-abled.

  13. ‘she had made the story up to cover for being out late with her friends’

    Is she to be beheaded or stoned?

    How does her story cover for being out late?

    “I’m late cause someone yelled Donald Trump.”

    ‘But then, last week, her strict Muslim parents reported that she had disappeared from her home – only to reappear the following day. Questioned by the police, she broke down and admitted that she had made the story up to cover for being out late with her friends.’

    This is incoherent.

  14. Like the article on the BBC by someone with Tourette syndrome saying theatres should be more understanding of people with her condition, totally missing the point that the theatre isn’t discriminating against her but being considerate of its customers and anyone shouting loudly at random would be asked to leave regardless of the reason.

  15. Like the article on the BBC by someone with Tourette syndrome saying theatres should be more understanding of people with her condition

    Does the BBC employ newsreaders with Tourettes? I’d actually pay my telly tax to watch that!

  16. One hate crime debunked, therefore all hate crimes never happened. Jo Cox?
    Doesn’t the depraved quality of that murder/ assassination ; the sheer buffoonish hatred, show that’s it not simply a matter of numbers. Only one good natured MP shot with a cut-down garden gun and hacked about while meeting her constituents?
    Really nothing to worry about: not as if house prices have slumped or anything important. Everybody loves us in Europe for our eccentric sense of humour so it doesn’t matter if they think we’re racist.Its the Strictly final tonight : look on the bright creative side of our wonderful culture and rejoice.Put on you big knickers and rejoice!
