A woman who wore a headscarf to protect her from the sun returned from a hike in the East Bay hills to find her car vandalized and burglarized, and a note left behind by the culprits reading “Hijab Wearing Bitch,” officials said Wednesday.
Nicki Pancholy, 41, of Milpitas said she felt fear and panic after discovering the note on her car. She said she is not Muslim and wears a bandanna around her head because she has lupus.
“I did not come the next day for my hike because I was scared to come,” Pancholy said. “I didn’t know who was watching me. I would like for the violence to end with me.”
Police are classifying the incident as a hate crime after the note found on Pancholy’s dashboard read, “Hijab Wearing Bitch. This is our nation, now get the F— out.”
Apparently there have been over 430 cases of hateful intimidation reported nationwide since the elections according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The center also stated that many incidents involved direct references to the President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign and slogans. I wonder what the percentage of these reports are 100% fabricated? 15%? 25%? 75%? We’ve seen many hate crime hoaxes in the past and it seems the frequency has been increasing steadily during Barf Obama’s Presidency.
There is one little thing that makes me suspicious about this story, however. She’s had a “Go Fund Me” page that was created on September 20. Before this alleged incident, she managed to raise $0 for her mission of world peace by climbing a mountain. I’m thinking she needed more publicity to get her Go Fund Me page rolling. It’s just a hunch. What say you?
