Faking Hate Crimes: Always A Bad Decision


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

A Muslim student told police she was the victim of abuse on a subway. After investigating, police say it didn't happen. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"The attack described by Yasmin Seweid sounded all too familiar. The 18-year-old Muslim woman from Long Island told police and media outlets in early December that she was riding the subway home one night from Baruch College, where she is a student, when three drunk men cornered her and began screaming “Donald Trump!”

“Oh look, a f—ing terrorist,” they purportedly yelled. “Get the hell out of the country!”

She tried to ignore their taunts, she said, but that only made things worse. First they yanked on her bag, breaking the strap, then tried to rip her hijab off her head, Seweid told the New York Daily News on Dec. 3.

Throughout the whole ordeal, she said, no one on the packed train came to her aid.

The highly publicized incident bore many of the same hallmarks as scores of other anti-Islamic hate-crime incidents reported in the wake of Donald Trump’s November victory in the presidential election.

But police now say it was all a lie.

On Wednesday, two weeks after the alleged attack, Seweid was arrested on misdemeanor charges of filing a false report and obstructing government administration, New York Police Department spokesman Adam Navarro told The Washington Post."*

      +elchivo918 Look I’m not denying that there are also cases where women lie
      about being raped. The point I’m trying to make though is that even you
      have to admit there must be some cases where women aren’t lying out of all
      the rape cases there are every year. We may disagree on the number of those
      cases but I’m sure we agree that at least a few people out of thousands are
      telling the truth. Those women are generally discredited or their cases not
      properly investigated. So if women are also not lying about those some
      cases of rape then what do you do about the said rape if in the majority of
      cases there is no way to prove a rape happened? Let the guy who raped the
      girl go and keep doing what he does? And honestly its pretty hard for a
      women to delude herself that she has been raped. If she says “No I don’t
      consent to having sex with you.” and someone forces her to have sex that’s
      rape. Its a pretty simple concept. I don’t know about your suicide rate
      statistic. I looked into it and found that women tend to use more
      nonviolent means of suicide such as overdosing and often-times it doesn’t
      work as well. Here’s an article from the guardian that I found on that
      statistic. (

      Primarily TYT gets their news material from establishment left leaning
      media – which they quote as truth, without doing any research – thats why
      they are mad about fake news – they never vet the stories. There are some
      exceptions like DAPL, but mostly they just aggregate and insert their
      opinions. They are not journalists, they are pundits.

      include cases of fake hate crime reports of both camps in the same video.
      Especially on “equal culpability” subject matter like this one. This is how
      you unite the divided people in love and in their stupidity too, so no-one

      It would be more correct to say that “if you don’t agree with everything
      TYT says you are not a far left progressive, but may be a classic liberal,
      anrcho-capitalist, centrist, right leaning or right-wing”

      would be creating an echo chamber ?

      +Mark Broadhurst The lies in where when most of you conservatives or

      full of him self. NO! Cenk said see we cover both sides of the craziness,
      just a a joking kinda of hubris manner, which is fine. The main problem I
      see with these trolls that come here as if they are actually trying to get
      a different perspective and always throw out this “I don’t want to be in an
      echo chamber” BS! is that they never come wanting the facts, they want to
      feel slighted in some way, they want to make fun of Cenk’s skin color or
      his weight which is irrelevant. I honestly feel all you Sargon of Akkad
      watcher that come here are pathetic and really need another hobby than just

      and here is the dodge christians always give when they know what they are

      them for dodging like this.

      also you do know everything in the new testament does not make any sense
      without the old testament and NONE OF IT MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL but you
      could make a connection.

      the bible say slavery is ok in many different situation, the people say
      abortions is ok in many different situation, the bible say rape is ok in
      many different situation, the bible say killing gay people is ok in many
      different situation, the bible say killing non-believers is ok in many
      different situations and so on over and over and over and yet the

      Agreed. Faking a crime only makes it more difficult for actual victims to
      find justice (and deal with an ever-increasing skeptical public). However,
      we must be careful – failure to prove a crime (like sexual assault) does
      not mean that the victim was lying. It would be terrible for victims to not
      only *not* receive justice, but then be punished for it.

      Eugene Duits agreed. Did you see about that case in Canada where a girl
      publicly accused a politician of raping her in front of the crowd and the
      crowd chanted they all believe her. After investigating and the politician
      losing his job the police came out to say she dodged them when they tried
      to investigate the original allegation and lied about having being tested
      with a rape kit. She later went on LIVE television and confessed that she
      willingly had sex with him TWICE but hated herself for it because she has
      mental issues, and decided after that she must have been raped. As of yet I
      don’t think she has been charged with any crime.
