Feminist Journalist Charged With Hate Crime For Trying To Help A Muslim Woman
Bwahahahaha! A liberal undone by liberalism.
She was waiting to pay at the checkout when she noticed a man with two small children also queuing. They were joined by a woman wearing a hijab and a long black tunic who began unloading an overflowing trolley, one item at a time.
She says: 'I glanced over and thought, “This poor woman's going to be there for hours.” Her husband was standing closest to me, so I said to him, “Will you help her?”
'He said, “I've got the children.” I said, “Well, I can help her” and he replied, “What's it to you?” I said, “This is what feminism's about - women helping women.”
He said, “Oh, get lost.” I looked at the woman and said, “We live in a society in Britain where rights are equal - if you need help you can ask for it.” ' [...]
The couple became infuriated. 'The husband came up behind me and said in my ear, “You f*** off,” which I found very intimidating,' Miss Heathcote-Drury says. 'I wanted to get out of the shop as quickly as possible, but he approached me again.'
She called for a security guard and when one arrived, he began speaking to the man. Meanwhile, Miss Heathcote-Drury, who had paid for her shopping, was making her escape down the aisle when she claims she felt a sharp pain in her left shin and stumbled.
'The woman was standing with her hand on her hip and smirking. She wanted to humiliate me. Then she hit me on the left cheek.'
Photographer and feminist Cinnamon Heathcote-Drury was ultimately charged with a hate crime, even though she was the one attacked. The politically correct, multiculturally-sensitive police officers took the Muslim couples accusations as fact, without ever hearing Heathcote-Drury's side of the story.
But I'm not sympathetic. As Warner Todd Houston at Breitbart says:
Her liberal ideology is responsible for giving this Muslim couple no reason at all to adopt her cultural ways. So, why should this Muslim man help his wife, anyway? His culture doesn't allow for that, and this journalist's culture is telling him that his culture is a-okay.
The fact that the Muslim couple then used the weakness in the journalist's own culture to attack her by perverting her so-called "hate crime" laws -- well, that is just too funny.
Liberals made this multicultural, PC bed. Now let them sleep in it.
