Times Square Man Hits Hijab-Wearing Woman With Sign, Calls Her a "Fucking Terrorist"

TimesSquarearrest.jpg
Ah, Times Square. That place has everything--Broadway shows, naked body painting, anti-Semitic Elmo.

This weekend, it was also the site of an ugly race-based attack. An unidentified man was captured on video swearing at Times Square demonstrators, including a woman wearing a hijab, whom he called a "fucking terrorist" before hurling a sign at her.

"Are you out of your mind?" the woman, Rachel Gunnoe, is heard starting to say before the man charges toward her. He was quickly handcuffed by two NYPD officers, but it remains unclear whether the man will face any charges.

The demonstrators were in Times Square to protest the military coup in Egypt.

Gunnoe, at stay-at-home mom from New Jersey, tells the Voice it started when the man shoved a group of children as he was exiting the subway. "The first three kids he pushed out of the way, and [then he] ran up and started screaming, and I started screaming to the police, who were behind him, 'He just pushed these kids out of the way.'"

At that point, the man turned his attention on her. "I was holding a sign that said 'Mr. Obama it is a military coup,' and he took the sign out of my hands and he threw it and said that I'm an effing terrorist," Gunnoe says. The sign hit her square in the nose. "Thank God I wear glasses, 'cause it probably would have hit my eye."

Gunnoe says she told officers at the scene she wanted to press charges, and was told that she did not need to give a statement because the officers witnessed the attack.

The chutzpah of this dog, bringing up the persecuted Copts!  "What if," this Muslim terrorist asks??  No need to fantasize, you Islamist slag: that's exactly what's happening in Egypt under your Muslim Brotherhood terrorist bedfellows!!!

Are you assuming the man is Christian? What is the name of the square in Egypt where the Islamists sexually assaulted the western dressed reporters? Did the CPD protect them?

Wait, wait, wait ... this was a woman who was dressed in a hijab, and she says, "Thank GOD I wear glasses," and not "Thank ALLAH I wear glasses"?????  What kind of Muslim IS this slave to Allah?  And what kind of penance will she have to do now for that blasphemy against Allah?  Poor lady.  Maybe her little Muzzammil Hassan can set her straight in that cute, little, tender Islamic method?

@smitten4written @villagevoice It's called fighting fire with fire, using a thief to catch a thief...stop playing dumb.

@cowandspoon @villagevoice These muzzies are like those customers who take unfair advantage of a store's generous refund policy...Muslims here who support terrorists (she was protesting in support of the Muslim Brotherhood) aren't exactly freedom-loving citizens -- they're just an Islamic KKK, the same mentality!

@Cali_NY @pete1589 Aww, golly Cali, you have the sweetest temperament, dontcha?  Just LOVE that simplistic insult you just hurled against me.  And what else can we expect from Muslim minds, eh?  After all, you're all so pissed off because jo momma Hagar was tossed out of the Abrahamic clan due to Sarai's anger with Hagar, and Ishmael was 13 years older than Isaac and bullying him around because Isaac had the blessing and Ishmael did not.  Cast out of the family, you're cast out of the Salvation available only through Jesus Christ.  But don't worry, you can still take your vengeance to us here on earth, because our religion is Love, and yours is hatred, as you amply demon-strate.  You guys and gals do the beheadings and internecine atrocities as they are occurring all OVER the Middle East as anyone can see.  And now you're overflowing Europe and the U.S. in order to punish us amply for our sins of fornication, abortion, homosexuality, Feminism, divorce, birth control and all the other 'FREEDOMS' we've enjoyed the last 50 years since the Beatles and John "We're bigger than Christ" Lennon (RIP) introduced satan's dogma's to us.  Our churches are empty, our children are in the sewers for rat food after our abortions and garbage disposals have taken care of the evidence.  So welcome to Amerika, darling!  We believe in Almighty Science, and you are here to punish and overwhelm us.  What's taking you so damn long?

@Cali_NY @pete1589 Gee, thanks for the loving kindness you've shown me, darling.  That's what I just ADORE about muslims.  And it all stems out of the fact that you folks were thrown out of Abraham's family because Sarai was peeved at Hagar.  That's why you are all so steamed and pissed off against the legitimate Jews and Christians.  That's why your blessed kindness turns into vile insults, because the beheadings and pandemic chaos that embodies the societies of the Middle East are so different from western civilization.  That's also why God sends insulting animals like you into the west in order to punish us for our sins of abortion, divorce, bed hopping, Feminism, homosexuality and all the other abhorrent sins we've been committing the past 50 years with impunity.  Welcome to Hell, Cali!  See you there later, okay?  ir you beat me there, please say hello to 'satan and his multi-million denizens, okay?  Love ya!
