Yasmin Seweid, Woman Accused Of Making Up Story Of Anti-Muslim Harassment On Subway … Update: Arrested for Filing a False Police Report
HMM, DO THE DEMOCRATS AND MSM CARE ABOUT THIS FAKE NEWS ….
18 year old Yasmin Seweid, the woman who claimed she was a victim of a hate crime and anti-Muslim harassment appears to have made up the entire story. Oh wait MSM and Democrats, would that be fake news? The Muslim student who said she was harassed on the subway by drunken, hate-spewing white men shouting “Donald Trump!” It was all a lie. She made the story up because she broke curfew. She was charged with filing a false police report and obstructing governmental administration. So we are presented once again with another phony “Islamophobic” hate crime that the MSM was all too willing to embrace and jump on. Maybe the hate crime is that she accused Christians of assault?
Police on Wednesday said a New Hyde Park teen made up a story about being verbally attacked on a New York City subway train because she is Muslim.
Yasmin Seweid, 18, was brought in for questioning by police around 2:30 p.m., sources told CBS2. She was charged with filing a false police report and obstructing governmental administration, sources said.
Seweid claimed that she was verbally assaulted by a group of three men on the subway around 10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1. She told CBS2’s Tracee Carrasco she got on the No. 6 Train at 23rd Street and Park Avenue after leaving an event at Baruch College.
“I heard them talk, but I had my headphones in, I wasn’t really listening, I had a long day. And they came closer and I distinctly heard them saying, ‘Donald Trump,’” she said.
“They were surrounding me from behind and they were like, ‘Oh look, it’s an f-ing terrorist,’” she said. “I didn’t answer. They pulled my strap of the bag and it ripped, and that’s when I turned around and I was really polite and I was like, ‘can you please leave me alone?’ and everyone was looking, no one said a thing, everyone just looked away.”
Seweid said no one stopped the men, not even when she claimed they tried to tear off her hijab.
“They kept saying, ‘You don’t belong here, get out of this country, go back to your country,’ and finally they came really close and they were like, ‘Take that rag off your head,’” she said.
Seweid also criticized President-elect Donald Trump personally.
Since Donald Trump’s election night victory and at the direction of Hillary Clinton campaign operatives, social media users have been scolded and warned over the scourge of “fake news” from supposedly respected journalistic outlets, on the web and on network television. Clinton herself, just last week, even blamed her election loss partly on the dangerous spread of fake news.
So enter the curious case of Yasmin Seweid, the 18 year old New York City college student whose story of being harassed and assaulted by three Donald Trump supporters on a line 6 subway train went viral. This came on the heels of reports — many exaggerated — a so-called “surge” in Trump-fueled, hate-filled activity.
