Special laws for special classes in Connecticut
Just when we were catching our breath from the last hijab crisis, a “shocking” new one emerges.
A woman had a brief conversation with a Muslim family about hijabs, and immigrants at a Macy’s in Connecticut. Apparently, it was the Muslim family that initiated the conversation.
But, since these two did not see eye to eye on the hijab, terror-tied CAIR has to get involved.
CAIR exec director Tark Aqoadi is very concerned about this.
“People are emboldened to say what they think…”
And, you know what that means – hate speech. But, not to worry CAIR has the answer.
“And the solution isn’t to spout out more hate and xenophobia. It’s to meet your neighbor.”
Unfortunately for this particular fairy tale, that is exactly what happened. And, the Muslim family did not like what they found. So, now the police are investigating a “racially motivated incident.”
Considering the amount of security cameras at malls, the odds are good that police can identify the Macy’s shopper. What will happen to her next as a result of her chance encounter with her neighbors is anybody’s guess.
When the Macy’s shopper said the immigrants are taking over she may have been more right than she knew.
EXCLUSIVE: Police investigating video of *racially motivated mall confrontation in Manchester
*Islam is not a race.

MANCHESTER — A shocking mall confrontation in Manchester was caught on video. The incident has sparked a police investigation. The incident happened at the Buckland Hills Mall inside the Macy’s store just before 8 p.m. Monday.
Manchester Police Lt. Ryan Shea confirmed they are investigating a racially motivated incident.
The video posted on social media shows a still unidentified shopper is heard making a comment toward a Muslim woman who was with her daughters. She can be heard saying their husbands force the women to wear hijabs, which is a traditional Muslim head covering.
The daughters, who want to remain anonymous said, “We’re living in this country with freedom. That’s why we’re wearing our head scarf because we can wear it.”
She said it all started when the woman was talking to someone on speaker phone. “And she goes, ‘oh yeah I’m trying to look for my keys but there’s no one here to ask for help. They are all immigrants and they don’t speak in English.’”
They then started speaking to each other. “She’s like yeah but you immigrants are taking over.” She said, “I’ve always just had love and care from the community here.”
The video caught the attention of CAIR Connecticut American Islamic Relations. Tark Aouadi is the Executive Director.
Aouadi said, “We’re seeing more of this. People are emboldened to say what they think…They are using the idea that this is a free country and that we have free speech to shield against what is real hate. And the solution isn’t to spout out more hate and xenophobia. It’s to meet your neighbor.”
Manchester Police are investigating.
They are trying to identify the woman in the video making the remarks. She left before the police arrived.
