Media Party admits #HijabHoax — but they don't regret a thing

Rebel Staff

That 11-year-old Muslim girl who said on Friday she was attacked by a man with scissors, twice, who cut her hijab — it was a lie. As we reported yesterday, police say it just didn’t happen.

But was there even a flicker of embarrassment in the Media Party after the fraud here was revealed? 

Here’s the Globe and Mail:

The hijab story wasn’t true – but our compassion must not waver

Oh, is that what lying to police, terrifying a school, pitting one religion against another, and demonizing Canadians — is that "compassion"?

Here’s CTV:

Muslims fear backlash over hijab hoax as school takes heat for press conference

Yeah, the school should. And the police. And the politicians. And the Muslim lobbyists who were pushing the lie that Canadians are racist.

The only racist liar I see is the mom. (If you agree that she should be charged with public mischief under Canada's Criminal Code, join the thousands who have signed out petition at HijabHoax.com)

Then there are her enablers in the media, who wanted that hate crime to be true.

Especially the CBC, who were the worst and the weirdest. They blared out this young girl’s name and image for days, using our tax dollars. But suddenly they've decided not to use her name or picture anymore.

But will they at least follow up with the mother about why she lied? Of course not.

Stories like this are almost always hoaxes. Tonight I'll remind you of just a few.

Because there are so many. At least in the media, there are more cases of Islamophobia hoaxes than there are of real Islamophobia.

This has been a very revealing incident:

It’s shown everyone from our schools to our police to our media to our politicians are in on the scheme — the scheme to demonize Canada as a den of violent Islamophobes, that only they can solve with more power over you.

NEXT: Former police officer turned security expert Leo Knight tweeted an offer to write a Toronto Star op-ed to "how they were played and what they missed" when covering the hijab hoax story.

Whether or not the Star takes him up on that offer, Knight joins us to talk about that very topic.

THEN: Speaking of Twitter... Colin Craig, Interim Alberta Director for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, has been debating NDP academics about their online behaviour, asking:

Taxpayers provide the UofA with over 60% of its revenues. Should we at least be entitled to civil tweets from profs like @andrew_leach during the work day?

Craig comes on to discuss his concerns.
