FAIRFAX, VA- Another day, another hate crime hoax.

The latest incident took place in Fairfax, Virginia, where a physical altercation between Fairfax High School students led to claims of an anti-Muslim, racist hate crime.

The problem is, according to the Fairfax Police Department, that never happened.

The Post Millennial reports the Dec. 14 incident, which sparked CAIR-backed student protests, led to initial claims from a student, Ekran Mohamed that she was “called racist slurs, was pushed by two male classmates, and had her hijab pulled, which exposed her hair.

An Instagram video posted a few days ago by a woman who said she was Mohamed’s aunt had her describe the incident, saying that her niece was in a monthly marketing class meeting, when an Egyptian male student “drew the Islamic flag and put a cross on it, like a red cross, like an X,” she said.

She said that the male then specifically looked at her niece and two female friends, also Muslims.

After class ended, Mohamed walked to see a friend, at which time her backpack accidentally struck a male student. At that point, the male’s friends told him Mohamed said he was “ugly and little.”

At that point, the male student allegedly tried to grab Mohamed’s hijab from the back, she said. She turned around, grabbed his hair, and punched him in the stomach.

Mohamed said that the male student then threw her into a desk, which resulted in bruising to her left side.

After that, paramedics were called to the school because Mohamed collapsed on the floor because she claimed she couldn’t breathe. Paramedics were dispatched for what the school claimed was a “panic attack.”

After the incident, Fairfax police opened an investigation into the incident, with the usual suspects, so-called “advocacy groups,” such as CAIR—the Council on American-Islamic Relations—calling for a probe into what they referred to as a “hate crime” at the school.

On cue, other left-wing advocacy groups got involved, including the “Pride Liberation Project” and “FCPS Pride.” It is unknown if the Mohamed is part of the alphabet coalition.

In a press release, the Fairfax Police Department debunked the claim of a hate crime:

The police investigation determined the physical altercation between two Fairfax High School students was not a hate crime. The investigation revealed there were no racial comments made by either student.

The female student confirmed her hijab became partially undone during the altercation, exposing her hair. The female student advised that the information posted on several social media websites, stating that racial comments were used during the altercation were false.

While police determined there was no hate crime basis to the incident, their investigation continues. That matters not to the grievance mob, however.

After the altercation, a petition was circulated urging for accountability on the school’s behalf.

“As the victim forever has this moment engraved in her mind, [someone] has already returned to school with no consequences.

This is not right, this should have never happened, and the school is covering this up. As you sign this petition we plan to show whoever we can that and the school needs to take accountability for this disgusting incident. We plan on doing whatever we can to get justice and make our schools feel safe again.”

As of publication, nearly 32,000 people have signed the petition.

Last Thursday, hundreds of students walked out of the school in protest.

The district told station WTOP that at around 8:10 a.m., some 350 students “exercised their right to protest following an incident between two students that took place in school on Tuesday afternoon…Fairfax County Public Schools and the City of Fairfax Schools support the right of students to peacefully protest.”

MANCHESTER, CT- We’ll take “Things that never happened for 1,000…Alex.”

Or at least never happened to the extent that is being alleged. Last month, a high school football game took place between East Catholic High of Manchester, CT., and Montville High School, located in southeastern Connecticut.

The contest took place on East Catholic’s home field.

After the closely contested game, which East Catholic won in overtime, it is alleged that a racially motivated incident occurred between East Catholic football players and fans toward the Montville cheerleaders, according to a Montville High cheerleader named Nadya Wynn, 16.

According to WFSB in Hartford, at the game’s conclusion, Wynn said they were getting their belongings together after the game when the alleged incident occurred.


“The student section came rushing down and over to where we were standing, and they were cheering on their team at first and we ignored them and walked to get our bags. The football team [East Catholic] came in and started stomping on our stuff.”


Wynn said the cheerleaders got their things together and started walking toward the bus.

“These three or four kids said, ‘Go home n-word, go home n-word’ to me and they were just screaming,’ she said.

We know that at least part of that story is not true. In exclusive video obtained by Law Enforcement Today, as well as photographs of the post-game, the East Catholic football team never went near where the Montville cheerleaders were gathered. In other words, the football team did not “stomp” their bags as Wynn alleged.

As might be expected, the superintendent of Montville responded to the allegations in a statement:

“Based upon the serious nature of accounts we have received regarding the incident which occurred at Friday night’s football game against East Catholic (which was hosted by East Catholic), I have requested that CIAC [Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference] conduct an external investigation. CIAC has appointed an investigator to gather the evidence necessary to gain a complete understanding of the event.”

East Catholic’s president, Sean Brennan issued a statement as well the following Monday:

“We continue to investigate issues raised at last Friday’s football game against Montville High School and, while we do not believe anything inappropriate was said, we take this matter seriously and have met with our student body to reiterate our Student Code of Conduct and the behavioral expectations we have for our students.

We have been in contact with the CIAC and will cooperate with any next steps, and I ask if anyone has information which would assist in our investigation, please feel free to share it with me.”

As one might expect, the alleged incident fired up the race hustlers, including a woman, Keren Prescott, who has made it her life’s work over the past year or two to insert herself into stirring up racial strife in Connecticut towns.

Last year, for example, she targeted a business in Somers, CT., for Black Lives Matter protests because they had the audacity to support police.

Somers, a rural town located about 20 miles north of Hartford is a sleepy, well-to-do community which is hardly ground zero for the KKK. Likewise, she also organized BLM protests in the adjacent town of Stafford Springs, also not a town known for racial strife. In other words, Prescott is a “solution” in search of a problem.

According to the Journal Inquirer, Prescott seized upon the allegations made by the Montville student to once again make matters much worse. After the alleged incident, Prescott and a group called PowerUp CT organized a series of protests over what they claim are continuing racial issues at East Catholic.

“All these acts are horrible, but when I saw spitting was involved that just sent me to another place,” said Prescott, who last year was spit at by a woman during a protest at the state Capitol building in Hartford.

Prescott was apparently unhappy with Brennan’s statement, saying he was “showing his true colors” by dismissing Wynn’s account of the incident.

“That means one of two things to me: That means he doesn’t believe any of what these girls say happened, or he believes this stuff happened, but he doesn’t deem it as inappropriate,” Prescott said.

During the incident at the state Capitol last year, the woman who was accused of spitting at Prescott was given accelerated rehabilitation and has to complete 100 hours of “anti-hate” curriculum over two years as a form of probation.

Prescott however wasn’t happy with that, probably hoping the woman would have gotten the firing squad. As a first-time offender, the suspect, Yuliya Gilshteyn had the ability to apply for the program.

“This just set a precedent that you can spit on black people if you’re white, you can call them a racial slur, and you can commit a hate crime and you will go unpunished,” Prescott whined. “All it did was pave the way for more hate crimes like that to happen.”

Prescott also hates herself some Donald Trump and supporters of the now former president.

Prescott wanted towns which play East Catholic to boycott playing against the school until students are held accountable.

She also said she was going to write the CIAC and demand disciplinary action for an incident of which there is no evidence backing the allegations.

For his part, Brennan said the school, which has a minority population of about 30% doesn’t have any type of rampant issues with racism, The Day reported.

He said any such incidents of racism are handled by the school, including one video from last year where two students used racial slurs on a social media site. He said any such incidents result in consequences for those who offend.

Brennan noted that last year, the school started a “Students of Color” union at the request of students, and said staff members have done diversity, inclusion, and equity training. He also met with and agreed to work with a group called Veterans for Black Lives Matter and the Connecticut Youth Forum.

According to The Norwich Bulletin, Montville High School officials released a letter last week in which they accepted an apology from East Catholic. The CIAC has said both schools will be sending student reps to an upcoming training session on sportsmanship.

“We look forward to bringing together student leaders from both of our schools to ensure we all learn from this incident,” officials wrote.

As far as Prescott goes, she is nothing but a professional agitator. Her Instagram account is full of pro-BLM, anti-police posts. While the organization is based in Manchester, CT., Prescott seems obsessed with trying to find racism in small Connecticut towns.

She also bought into another racist hoax, the discovery of “nooses” at an Amazon construction site in the town of Windsor, a suburb of Hartford.

They decided to show up for a Trump support rally in Glastonbury, another upper-middle class community just east of Hartford, again hardly a stronghold of the KKK.

A tour through her Instagram account found a number of protests organized throughout northern Connecticut, most not in response to any particular incident but because Prescott and her group are simply trying to remain relevant.

As expected, she is also a big fan of George Floyd. On the one year anniversary of Floyd’s death, she posted on her Instagram, referring to him as a “father, son, friend, brother and lover.” She forgot criminal and drug addict.

Prescott is planning a 12-hour protest at East Catholic on October 21 (honestly, does this woman actually have a job?). Despite there being zero video evidence (and face it, everyone has cameras on their smartphones) that what is alleged to have occurred after the football game did in fact occur, Prescott is intent on stirring up trouble and furthering the racial divide. It apparently must make her feel important.
