This has happened over and over again: a minority comes forward to claim that a Trump supporter attacked her/him, yet the story later turns out to be a hoax. And that is what we have once again in New York: Another liberal has been caught fabricating a “hate crime” by a Trump supporter.
Last week a black woman in New York told police that a group of white teens attacked her verbally yelling pro-Trump slogans, then the next morning her car tires were slashed, and a note saying “go home” was left on the windshield.
Now she is admitting that she lied about the whole thing.
The story comes from New York’s ABC 7:
Officials said 19-year-old Adwoa Lewis, of Baldwin, told police Friday that she was driving home when a group of four teenagers approached her, yelled “Trump 2016!” and stated that she didn’t belong here.
Lewis also claimed that after she parked her car in front of her house, she woke up the next day to find slashed tires and a note that read, “Go Home.”
After an investigation, police learned that this altercation did not take place, and police said Lewis admitted to writing the hateful note and placing it on her own car.
Lewis is charged with making a false punishable written statement and was released on an appearance ticket.
This is hardly the first time a liberal has tried to pin a fake “hate crime” on non-existent Trump supporters.
Just to name a few examples, in November of 2016 a black man claimed that he was attacked by a white man yelling pro-Trump slogans on a New York bus. It turns out the man lied about the attack.
In December of 2016 a black man was arrested after he claimed his church was vandalized and burned by withe men who left “vote Trump” spray painted on the church walls. But police found that the black man committed the vandalism himself.
Though police in Philadelphia refused to identify the race of a suspect in the spray-paint vandalism featuring pro-Trump and pro-Nazi slogans on a local building, surveillance video appears to show a black man is the top suspect.
The story of a University of Louisiana Lafayette student who said she was beaten and had her Muslim headscarf pulled of her head by men “wearing Trump hats” fell apart after police became involved. The student later admitted she lied about the whole thing.
