CNN’s Camerota: Americans Should Wear Hijabs to Stand in Solidarity with Muslims

Since the election of Donald J. Trump as president-elect, the claims of hate crimes against Muslims has increased. CNN did its part to push this propaganda  by doing a piece on a Muslim woman’s claim that she was spit on by someone as she was wearing her hijab. Now, I’m not saying it didn’t happen but the reality is such a claim is completely hearsay. There was a similar claim by an LSU student which, upon investigation by police, was found to be a hoax.

Whenever a hate-filled letter is sent to a mosque, a Muslim claims they were spit on, or anti-Muslim graffiti appears somewhere, it is reported as fact that it was done by a Trump supporter with no real evidence to support such a claim. But, hey, why let a little thing like facts get in the way of a propaganda push that “Fearful Muslim Women Take Steps to Stay Safe” as the network reported on the Trump Transition.

During CNN’s New Day, host Alisyn Camerota introduced the piece in which they used data from the progressive and highly biased Southern Poverty Law Center about a rise in “hate crimes” against Muslims. Following the video, Camerota shared her idea of how Americans can and, in her mind no doubt, should respond to these claims of “hate crimes.”

Camerota suggested that Americans should wear hijabs, headscarves worn by Muslims, in order to stand in solidarity with Muslims. This propaganda push for Americans to wear hijabs comes just one day after a Muslim Somalian refugee, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, who had permanent resident status and was a student at the university, used his car and a butcher knife in an attack on the Ohio State University campus. One student died and numerous more were injured. Officer Alan Horujko killed Artan upon arriving on the scene.

Artan is on record as praising radical Imam Anwar al-Alwaki, whose propaganda has been linked to numerous terrorist attacks in the U.S. and worldwide, as a hero.
