These fourth grade black and Latino students’ reaction to racism is far more mature than the behavior of college aged social justice warriors

My blog has a category called “social justice warriors,” which includes a huge number of examples – many with videos – of the immature, irrational, and absurd behavior of college aged social justice warriors, who oftentimes act like spoiled, crybaby toddlers throwing temper tantrums.

By comparison, take a look at the mature, dignified, and psychologically healthy way that these fourth grade black and Latino students, whose “Panther Bots” robotics team had just won a competition, reacted to the racist taunts that were hurled at them. After these fourth grade students from Indianapolis’ Pleasant Run Elementary School had racial slurs thrown at them, they responded by saying

“I feel like what they say doesn’t affect us.”

and

“When you are a good team, people are going to hate you for being good and I think what people say can make you greater.”

I hope the social justice warriors on college campuses will learn a lesson from these fourth graders.

Here’s a picture of the happy champions (image taken form here, used under fair use):

New York state ends literacy test for prospective teachers because too many blacks and Hispanics failed. I wonder if they will extend this to other areas.

The New York Times recently reported:

The Board of Regents on Monday eliminated a requirement that aspiring teachers in New York State pass a literacy test to become certified after the test proved controversial because black and Hispanic candidates passed it at significantly lower rates than white candidates.

And there you have it.

The radical left thinks that racial diversity is more important than competence.

I wonder if they will be extending this kind of insanity to other professions, such as to medical doctors who perform surgery to save people’s lives, or to engineers who design bridges that are safe and which are able support the weight of all the cars, trucks, and buses that drive across them, or to auto mechanics who fix the brakes on people’s cars so they don’t crash and die.

The New York Times once reported:

The rate of AIDS among black women is 27 times the rate among white women.

Based on the same logic, the test which detects HIV antibodies in the bloodstream is also racist, and therefore, should also be eliminated.

New York considers ending literacy tests for prospective public school teachers because too many black and Hispanic applicants were failing

The New York Post reports:

State education officials plan to scrap a literacy exam given to prospective teachers

And why are they doing this? The article continues:

Sources said education officials also were concerned about the disparity between passing rates among white and minority candidates.

In 2013-14, only 48 percent of aspiring black teachers and 56 percent of prospective Hispanic educators passed, compared to 75 percent of white candidates, the website Chalkbeat reported in February.

And there you have it.

The public school bureaucrats think that when it comes to hiring teachers, racial diversity is more important than knowing how to read.

This is what happens when you put idiots in charge.

Forensic evidence proves that white customer did NOT write racist note to black waitress

In Virginia, after a black waitress claimed that a white customer had written a racist note on a receipt, people donated more than $3,600 to the waitress.

However, the receipt with the racist note is actually a reprint of the original receipt, and was printed after the restaurant had closed. So there’s no way that the racist message was actually written by the customer.

Lawyer: Racist Note Given To Black Waitress In Virginia Is A Fake

February 25, 2017

A black waitress who received thousands of dollars in donations after she claimed she received a racist note and no tip from a patron last month, fabricated the incident, the customer claims.

Kelly Carter, a waitress at Anita’s New Mexico Cafe in Ashburn, Va., claimed that a white man stiffed her on his $30.52 restaurant bill and wrote “Great service, don’t tip black people” at the bottom of his receipt.

But the receipt was fabricated, says Daniel Hebda, a lawyer for the patron.

Hebda said in a statement Friday that his client did leave Carter a small tip — one penny — because her service was poor, not because she is black.

“Our client did not nor would he ever write anything about refusing to tip African Americans because of their race,” Hebda said, according to WTOP.

“Our client has no ill feelings towards African Americans. Our client did not leave a $0.00 tip. Our client tipped $0.01 out of his own conviction against tipping well for poor service.”

Hebda said that his client did write on the receipt, but only the message “terrible service.”

Websites like the Huffington Post, Raw Story, the Daily Mail, the New York Daily News and others posted the story as an example of racism in America. The Loudon County NAACP became involved, and a Virginia man opened up an online fundraiser that brought in more than $3,600 for Carter.

Carter’s boss, Tommy Tellez, said last month, after Carter reported the receipt, that customers were showing up to the restaurant and just “dropping cash off” for Carter.

“I was appalled, though it’s kind of in line with the political landscape,” Tellez said at the time.

Though Carter’s story went viral, there were some early indications that her claim did not quite add up. For one, the receipt she posted online was printed several hours after Anita’s New Mexico Cafe closed. The receipt also bore markings showing that it was a reprint of an original receipt.

Hebda says he has reached out to Anita’s “and demanded that they set the story straight and find out who is responsible.”

It is unclear what will happen to the funds donated to Carter.

According to WTOP, the Loudon County NAACP says it is standing behind the waitress.

“It’s sad any way it goes,” Philip Thompson told the TV station.

Georgetown Islamic Studies Professor: Slavery OK, So is Non-Consensual Sex

Georgetown Islamic Studies Professor: Slavery OK, So is Non-Consensual Sex

February 10, 2017

A professor at Georgetown University is teaching his students that men do not need consent to have sex with women, and that slavery is justifiable under Islamic teachings.

Islamic Studies professor Jonathan Brown recently lectured at the International Institute of Islamic Thought, where he shared his alarming beliefs with students in attendance in his lecture, “Islam and the Problem of Slavery.” Freelance writer Umar Lee expressed his shock over the 90-minute lecture, which included explicit endorsements of rape and slavery.

Brown himself uploaded the lecture to YouTube.

According to Lee, Brown’s lecture was supposed to revolve around slavery in Islam, but the lecturer moved its focus to criticize the United States, United Kingdom and China. Brown described slavery in these non-Muslim societies as brutal, which they were, but lauded the historically inhumane practice in Arab lands and Turkey.

“Indeed, according to Brown, slaves in the Muslim world lived a pretty good life,” wrote Lee. “I thought the Muslim community was done with this dishonest North Korean style of propaganda. Obviously not.”

Brown decried the use of prison labor in the United States and highlighted other problems inherent in Western society, but refused to address the abuse of foreign laborers in the Gulf or the ghastly treatment of prisoners in the Middle East. It was a one-sided lecture that glorified his religion while demonizing Western society.

The Islamic Studies professor said that in Muslim societies, “slavery wasn’t racialized,” unlike the United States. Lee points out that this is untrue, given that in the Arab world, black people are referred to as “abeed,” the Arab word for “slave.”

Brown stated that slaves were “protected by Sharia,” omitting the various atrocities committed by slave-owners. Girls and women were forced into the sex trade and their male counterparts were often castrated.

“In general you don’t find the brutality that you see in American slavery,” said Brown, who described the historically common practice as “investments” and “walking venture properties” for slave-owners.

The soft-pedaling and revisionism of historical atrocities is deplorable, to say the least.

Historically, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams conducted warfare against vassal states of the Ottoman Empire to end the Barbary slave trade, in which North African pirates conducted constant raids into European coastal towns to capture men and women for slavery.

Brown defended slavery, stating, “It’s not immoral for one human to own another human” by comparing it to marriage—a quid pro quo arrangement in which both slave and master benefited from the arrangement.

“I don’t think it’s morally evil to own somebody because we own lots of people all around us and we’re owned by people,” said Brown.

A female attendee asked Brown about the permissibility of sex with slaves, to which the professor stated that “Consent isn’t necessary for lawful sex,” and defined consent as a Western concept that emerged with women’s suffrage and female body autonomy. Brown, he said, believes that marital rape was an invalid concept in Islam.

Had Prof. Brown’s words been spoken by a practicing member of any other religion, they would’ve lost their jobs and shunned out of the academic world.

Milo Yiannopoulos: “White pride, white nationalism, white supremacy isn’t the way to go”

Milo: White Nationalism is Not the Answer

January 26, 2017

Breitbart News Senior Editor MILO declared that “white pride,” “white nationalism,” and “white supremacy,” are not the answer during his talk at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs tonight, urging people to avoid fighting left-wing identity politics with identity politics.

“The reality is, if you force everyone to play identity politics, if you insist in pitting whites against blacks, women against men, straights against gays, the reality is you guys are gonna win and the left isn’t going to like it very much,” declared MILO. “But there’s a better way. Don’t fight identity politics with identity politics.”

“White pride, white nationalism, white supremacy isn’t the way to go,” he continued. “The way to go is reminding them and yourselves that you should be aspiring to values and to ideas.”

“You should be focusing on what unites people and not what drives them apart,” MILO concluded. “You shouldn’t give a shit about skin color, a shit about sexuality… You shouldn’t give a shit about gender, and you should be deeply suspicious of the people who do.”

Here are five examples of social justice warriors blocking ambulances

1) In December 2014, in Berkeley, Missouri, Alvin Henry Jones Jr., 62, died two days after Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that was carrying him.

2) In January 2015, in Milton, Massachusettes, Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that was carrying Richard McGrath, 82. The protestors chained themselves to barrels full of concrete to make especially sure that no vehicles could get by. In February 2016, after 10 of the protestors pled guilty to “willfully impending an emergency vehicle,” and were sentenced to six months of probation and 60 hours of community service, their spokesperson said that they were not sorry for what they had done.

3) In July 2016, in Memphis, Tennessee, Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that was trying to get to a child, after the same Black Lives Matter protestors had blocked the same child’s parents’ car from taking him to the hospital.

4) In March 2016, in Chicago, Illinois, Black Lives Matter protestors blocked an ambulance that had its emergency sirens blaring. In this video, you can see that many of the protestors deliberately repositioned themselves so they were standing specifically, directly in front of the ambulance, even though its emergency sirens had already been blaring for quite some time:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvCdAuBBh0U

5) In February 2017, in Hew Haven, Connecticut, anti-Trump protestors blocked an ambulance that was carrying a critically ill patient. Because of this, the EMTs had to perform an emergency medical procedure on the patient in the ambulance, instead of it being performed by doctors at the hospital. The lawyer for these protestors said it was not their fault that they blocked the ambulance, because the police did not tell them about the ambulance.

Black Lives Matter crowd cheers as activist calls for an end to capitalism, demands white people give up all of their possessions, and says “we need to start killing people”

The fact that abolishing private property has been a total failure in each and every country where it has been tried, and has led to nothing but misery, poverty, hunger, famine, empty shelves in stores, dictatorship, oppression, censorship, political imprisonment, and a shortage of toilet paper, the crowd cheers as this Black Lives Matter activist calls for the U.S. to do the very same thing.

They also cheer as she says, at 1:50, “we need to start killing people.”

German court says people named “Mohammad” were “justified” in setting fire to a synagogue, and gives them zero jail time

German court calls synagogue torching an act to ‘criticize Israel’

January 13, 2017

A German regional court in the city of Wuppertal affirmed a lower court decision last Friday stating that a violent attempt to burn the city’s synagogue by three men in 2014 was a justified expression of criticism of Israel’s policies.

Johannes Pinnel, a spokesman for the regional court in Wuppertal, outlined the court’s decision in a statement.

Three German Palestinians sought to torch the Wuppertal synagogue with Molotov cocktails in July, 2014.  The local Wuppertal court panel said in its 2015 decision that the three men wanted to draw “attention to the Gaza conflict” with Israel. The court deemed the attack not to be motivated by antisemitism.

Israel launched Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014 to stop Hamas rocket attacks into Israeli territory.

The court sentenced the three men – the 31-year-old Mohamad E., the 26 year-old Ismail A. and the 20-year-old Mohammad A.—to suspended sentences. The men tossed self-made Molotov cocktails at the synagogue.  German courts frequently decline to release the last names of criminals to protect privacy.

The attack caused €800 damage to the synagogue. The original synagogue in Wuppertal was burned by Germans during the Kristallnacht pogroms in 1938. Wuppertal has a population of nearly 344,000 and is located in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The court said the men had consumed alcohol and there were no injuries to members of the synagogue.

A 13-year-old who lived near the synagogue and noticed the flames informed the police. Several days before the fire, a person sprayed “Free Palestine” on a wall of the synagogue.

After the local Wuppertal court decision in 2015, Volker Beck, a leading Green Party MP,  said the “attack on the synagogue was motivated by antisemitism” and blasted the court for issuing a decision stating that the goal of the attack was to highlight the war in Gaza.

“This is a mistaken decision as far as the motives of the perpetrators are concerned,” he said, adding that the burning of a synagogue in Germany because of the Middle East conflict can be attributed only to antisemitism.

“What do Jews in Germany have to do with the Middle East conflict? Every bit as much as Christians, non-religious people or Muslims in Germany, namely, absolutely nothing. The ignorance of the judiciary toward anti-Semitism is for many Jews in Germany especially alarming, ” said Beck.

Black student stages fake KKK hate crime in Baltimore

I’ve said this before and and I’ll say it again: the only reason that social justice warriors create fake hate crimes is because there aren’t as many real hate crimes as the social justice warriors wish there were.

Police Charge Student For Threat Made At Arundel High School

January 11, 2017

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Anne Arundel County Police Department has charged a 14-year-old girl with a juvenile citation for sending a threatening tweet related to Arundel High School.

Police began their investigation after Arundel High School officials told them about a suspicious Twitter account.

The account, named @KoolkidsKlanKkk, reportedly sent out a tweet that read, “We’re planning to attack tomorrow”.

This account used similar language to a racial petition that had been passed around Anne Arundel High School by the “Kool Kids Klan”.

Police worked with Twitter, and were able to identify the person who created the account and sent out the threatening tweet.

That person has been identified as a 14-year-old African American female who attends Arundel High School.

Authorities interviewed the girl while she was with her parents, and police say she admitted to creating the Twitter account and sending the threatening tweet.

She was charged with a juvenile citation for disruption of school activities and released to her parents.

“It makes me really upset. I can’t believe that students would write something like that,” said parent Michelle Fitzurka.

“I kind of felt unsafe at the school and a little hurt,” said Taylor Nash, a freshman at Arundel High.

The school district said all the students involved in that incident were disciplined, but the students were not identified, and to complicate an already tense situation, Wednesday night hundreds showed up for a meeting at the school, but some parents still had questions.

“That is not good enough. What’s going to happen with the students that are still here?”said parent Tamara Hannah.

“The federal law prohibits me from telling you exactly what the consequences were. But I will say to you that the school acted swiftly, they acted aggressively and they administered appropriated disciplinary action,” said Bob Mosier, chief communications officer of Anne Arundel Public Schools.

As parents left the school, there’s hope the community will begin to heal.

“I am very confident that Ms. Davenport and the staff at the school is going to do everything they can to keep all of our children safe,” said parent Sheri Paris.

“I just hope that we can all come together, not just here at the school, but as a society,” said parent Lisa Smith.

Anne Arundel County Public Schools Superintendent George Arlotto released the following statement:

“I want to thank Police Chief Tim Altomare, State’s Attorney Wes Adams, County Executive Steve Schuh, and their staffs for their thorough and expeditious work to identify a suspect in the online post that threatened violence at Arundel High School this week. The anonymity of the internet provides a murky and complex disguise for many who want to threaten the safety and security of our communities. Our partners in the Police Department and county government peeled back that disguise quickly in this case, in the process reassuring parents, students, and staff that our schools are safe places in which to educate our children.”

Chicago foursome in custody after live streaming kidnapping and torturing Trump supporter

January 4, 2017

A disturbing video of a white man being tortured by four black individuals while tied up and gagged has surfaced as a Facebook Live yesterday from a woman named Brittany Herring. During the video, the white man’s clothes are cut, peppered with cigarette ash, is kicked, punched, and cut as Herring speaks to the camera.

The reason for the torture is that the white man supposedly voted for Donald Trump.

The victim is reportedly special needs, and was a “high-risk missing person” according to police.

During the video, the foursome can be heard saying things like “F*** Donald Trump! F*** white people!” and laughing as they torture the man.

Watch the edited version from Fox32 in Chicago below. Some may consider this graphic.

Chicago police have said that the foursome are now in custody, but no charges have yet been filed. The young man is was treated at an undisclosed hospital, but has since been released.

A Muslim student in Michigan claimed a man threatened to set her on fire. Police say it’s a hoax.

A Muslim student in Michigan claimed a man threatened to set her on fire. Police say it’s a hoax.

December 21, 2016

A University of Michigan student who told police that a stranger threatened to set her on fire if she didn’t remove her hijab could soon face a felony charge for false reporting.

Police say there is no evidence proving the student’s report to authorities in November, when she claimed that an intoxicated man threatened her outside the Ann Arbor campus. The investigation will be turned over to the Washtenaw County prosecutor’s office, which will decide if the student should be charged.

Lt. Matthew Lige, a detective with the Ann Arbor Police Department, told The Washington Post Wednesday that because the act of intimidation the student reported to police is considered a felony, she could be charged with a felony charge of filing a false report. Under Michigan law, that crime is punishable by up to four years in prison or a fine of not more than $2,000.

The student, whose name is not being released at this time, told police that a man in his 20s or 30s approached her between 5:30 and 7 p.m. on Nov. 11 and threatened to set her on fire with a lighter. She also said the man had an average height, an athletic build and an unkempt appearance.

After interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance videos, investigators with the Ann Arbor and University of Michigan police departments and the FBI found “numerous inconsistencies” with the student’s statements, according to a news release.

Lige said the identity of the student, previously identified as a 19-year-old woman, will not be released until she’s charged with a crime.

Fake hate crime in Greenville, Mississippi: black man burns black church, writes “Vote Trump”

Arrest made in ‘Vote Trump’ burning of Mississippi black church

December 21, 2016

Greenville, Miss. — Mississippi authorities have made an arrest in the burning of an African-American church spray-painted with the words, “Vote Trump.”

Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesman Warren Strain says Andrew McClinton of Leland, Mississippi, who is African-American, is charged with first-degree arson of a place of worship.

McClinton was arrested Wednesday. Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi, was burned and vandalized Nov. 1, a week before the presidential election.

It was not immediately clear whether McClinton is represented by an attorney.

Greenville is a Mississippi River port city of about 32,100 people, and about 78 percent of its residents are African-American.

After the fire, Hopewell congregants began worshipping in a chapel at predominantly white First Baptist Church of Greenville.

Fire Chief Ruben Brown told The Associated Press the sanctuary of Hopewell M.B Church sustained heavy damage in the fire, while the kitchen and pastor’s office received water and smoke damage.

The words “Vote Trump” were also spray-painted on an outside wall of the church.

Muslim college student who claimed Trump supporters attacked her on the subway under arrest for making story up

Muslim college student who claimed Trump supporters attacked her on the subway under arrest for making story up

December 14, 2016

She made it all up — and now she’s under arrest.

The Muslim college student who claimed she was harassed on the subway by three men who shouted “Donald Trump,” called her a terrorist and tried to rip her hijab off her head has admitted to detectives that she concocted the entire story, the Daily News has learned.

Yasmin Seweid, 18, has been charged with filing a false report, a police source said.

Seweid had numerous opportunities to admit the incident never happened but again and again stood by her story, the source said.

On Wednesday, after again being confronted with questions from detectives increasingly suspicious of her story she recanted and said she made it all up, citing family problems.

The police source said criminally charging her was appropriate.

“This isn’t something we normally like to do but she had numerous opportunities to admit nothing happened and she kept sticking by her story,” the source said.

“We dedicated a lot of resources to this — and don’t get me wrong, this is what we do — but we had guys going back and forth, looking for video and witnesses. And we couldn’t find anything.”

“Nothing happened — and there was no victim.”

It wasn’t immediately clear what Seweid hoped to gain by lying to police.

The Baruch College student claimed that on her way home to Long Island the night of Dec. 1 she encountered three drunken men on an uptown No. 6 train.

She said straphangers stood by and did nothing while the trio mocked her and tried to tear the religious garb from her head.

“It made me really sad after when I thought about it,” she said. “People were looking at me and looking at what was happening and no one said a thing. They just looked away.”

She provided police a description of the suspects, one of whom police believed they saw on video following her when she got off the subway at Grand Central Station to look for police. At the same time, there were inconsistencies in her story.

For awhile, police believed those to be nothing more than typical of someone traumatized, but detectives could not find witnesses or any significant video.

Then, last week, she left home and was reported missing on Thursday — only to turn up safe and sound Friday.

That, sources said, increased the suspicions surrounding her tale.

In Michigan, video shows police tying a black man to a chair and beating him so badly that he lost vision in one eye

Police tie black man to chair and beat him until he loses vision in one eye

Frankie Taylor has filed a lawsuit against the police department in Eastpointe, Michigan, after the brutal ordeal

December 8, 2016

A black man in Michigan has filed a lawsuit against his local police department after he was beaten by police so badly that he lost vision in one eye.

Frankie Taylor was arrested for alleged drink driving on 10 August last year. He was taken to the police station, restrained, tied to a chair and savagely beaten.

The disturbing incident at Eastpointe police department was caught on camera. The footage was obtained by Fox News.

After a verbal exchange, the officers get Mr Taylor on the ground and restrain him. They then tie him to chair facing the camera.

“If you keep acting like a child, you’re going to get strapped in that chair and you’re going to stay there,” an officer says to Mr Taylor.

Another officer puts on a pair of gloves and beats the victim until he loses consciousness. His cries of pain and fear are clearly heard in the video.

There are four officers surrounding Mr Taylor while he is tied in the chair.

“Stop resisting,” the officer says automatically as he lands punches on Mr Taylor’s face and head. “Stop resisting.”

“The guy hit me so many times, it made me cry once I seen the tape,” Mr Taylor told Fox news. “I was knocked out.”

He previously had an implant under one eye for glaucoma, but the beating dislodged it and led to his loss of vision.

His lawyer, James Rasor, said the police moved Mr Taylor to jail the next day instead of hospital. By the time he went to a Detroit hospital for surgery a few days later, it was too late to save his eye.

Mr Rasor said his client has “horrible nightmares”. The lawsuit requests a sum of money greater than $75,000, excluding legal fees and punitive damages.

He was not allowed to make a phone call once he got to the jail last August, Mr Rasor said, unlike other detainees who are white. The lawyer described the incident as police brutality.

Eastpointe police department could not be immediately contacted for comment.

A firefighter in upstate New York is facing a felony arson charge after authorities say he set his family’s house on fire and wrote an anti-police message outside as a potential cover-up.

Jason Stokes, 41, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to felony second-degree arson following the mysterious Aug. 10 summer blaze in Endicott, just west of Binghamton, local station TV WBNG reported.

Stokes, his wife and two teenaged children escaped the home safely, state police said.

Broome County District Attorney Steve Cornwell described an “obstacle course” inside the house that firefighters had to get through.

“There were gas cans, full gas cans and other containers full with flammable material, placed throughout the home as if it were an obstacle course to get around,” he said at a press conference Tuesday.

Authorities say they found a “Blue Lives Matter” flag outside the home and a spray-painted message on a wall reading: “Lie with pigs, fry like bacon.”

Cornwell called the message, which he refused to repeat, a “despicable display of how law enforcement should be viewed in society today.” He suggested that the message was meant to throw off investigators into believing anti-police protesters were to blame. He declined to speculate on a possible motive.

At the time of the incident, the family suggested that the fire was a targeted attack against them, WBNG reported.

Stokes was released Wednesday on $10,000 bail. An attempt to reach him for comment Thursday was not immediately successful.

The Press & Sun-Bulletin of Binghamton reported that Stokes has worked as a firefighter with the Endicott Fire Department since March 2005. He has been placed on administrative leave following the charges.

A trial date is set for April 17.

KKK holds parade to celebrate Trump’s victory

KKK holds parade in Roxboro

December 3, 2016

ROXBORO — The Ku Klux Klan held a parade in North Carolina Saturday, but moved it to the afternoon and one county over from where the group said it would gather to celebrate Donald Trump’s election as president.

State troopers blocked intersections as the KKK parade of about 30 vehicles drove through the city’s downtown and major thoroughfare, the Times-News in Burlington reported.

Men and women shouted “White power!” and “Hail victory!” from vehicles flying KKK flags, Confederate battle flags, Donald Trump flags and Christian flags during the afternoon parade, the newspaper reported.

Hundreds of protesters and observers had arrived in Pelham Saturday morning preparing to demonstrate against the KKK, the Times-News reported. The group, which the Southern Poverty Law Center lists as a hate group, had originally told the paper it would hold its “Victory Kavalkade Klan Parade” in the morning in the “vicinity of Pelham.”

Several groups across the state, including in Greensboro, Mebane and Charlotte, held rallies Saturday to counter the Klan event.

A U.S. born Muslim NYPD officer who ran into a burning building to save a baby and an elderly man is the victim of a real hate crime

I’ll definitely take the word of any police officer who runs into a burning building to save a baby and an elderly man.

Plus, they have a real suspect in custody.

Muslim NYPD officer threatened, told ‘go back to your country’

December 5, 2016

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said he’s “sick to my stomach” over an incident in which a Muslim off-duty NYPD officer was reportedly threatened over the weekend by a man who said, “I will cut your throat, go back to your country.”

The officer, Aml Elsokary, said she had just dropped off her 16-year-old son in Brooklyn Saturday evening when a man begin arguing with the teen. When Elsokary, who was not in uniform, intervened, the man allegedly told her, “ISIS [expletive], I will cut your throat, go back to your country,” before fleeing the scene.

Elsokary, a 34-year-old Muslim-American, is an 11-year-veteran of the NYPD. She was wearing a hijab at the time of the incident, according to the NYPD.

Within 24 hours of the incident New York police arrested Christopher Nelson, 36, and charged him with menacing as a hate crime and aggravated harassment. Nelson was ordered held on $50,000 bail, according to Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez.

Nelson’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request from CNN seeking comment.

There are approximately 900 Muslim-Americans currently serving on the NYPD, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday at a news conference in which he addressed the threat against Elsokary.

“This is her country, she is an American, she is a New Yorker, and this is her home. We cannot allow this hatred and bias to spread,” de Blasio said.

Elsokary, who regularly wears a hijab while on duty in Brooklyn, was praised for her heroism after she helped save a baby girl and an elderly man from a burning building in April 2014, according to a press release from Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams.

“I help everybody no matter what your religion is. I’m born and raised here and I am here to protect you all. The department has supported me in wearing my hijab. I want to thank my Muslim officers for standing by my side,” Elsokary said at Monday’s press conference.

The incident involving Elsokary is just one in a recent rash of hate crimes in New York, authorities said.

On Monday, an off-duty Muslim NYC transit employee was assaulted by a male passenger at Grand Central Terminal. The man allegedly called the uniformed employee a “terrorist” and pushed her down a flight of stairs.

The transit employee sustained injuries to her ankle and knee and was transported to an area hospital, according to a statement from Governor Andrew Cuomo, who directed the Metropolitan Transit Authority, the State Police and the state Division of Human Rights to investigate the matter.

“This is the great state of New York — we welcome people of all cultures, customs and creeds with open arms. We do not allow intolerance or fear to divide us because we know diversity is our strength and we are at our best when we stand united,” Cuomo said.

Hate crimes in New York City are up 35% from last year, with a “huge spike” in incidents right after Election Day on November 8, NYPD Chief of Detectives Bob Boyce said Monday. Most of the reported hate crimes have been anti-Semitic in nature, followed by anti-Muslim crimes, Boyce said. De Blasio said the uptick in hate crimes were “obviously connected to the (presidential) election.”

Critics accused President-elect Donald Trump of fostering xenophobia and Islamophobia during the divisive presidential campaign. In an interview last month Trump said he was “so saddened” to hear about vitriol hurled by some of his supporters against minorities and told them to “stop it.”

“You can’t have a candidate for president single out groups of Americans negatively and not have some ramification for that, not have something as a result of that. It’s very troubling. Look, a few times recently the President-elect has spoken out against it. He needs to keep doing that,” de Blasio said Monday.
