A New York woman has been charged with a hate crime after she allegedly attacked two Muslim women who were simply out pushing their baby strollers.
According to prosecutors, Emirjeta Xhelili allegedly approached the two women and began to yell Islamophobic slurs at them, trying to rip off their hijabs as well as punching them in the face and kicking them in the legs.
“Get the f*ck out of here,” she reportedly yelled at the two women. “Get the f*ck out of America, b*tches… This is America — you shouldn’t be different from us.”
Additionally, she did not seem to care for the well-being of a 15-month-old baby that was in one of the strollers as she allegedly tried to knock it over.
“She didn’t even care for the well-being of a baby — that’s how serious this hate crime is,” Assistant District Attorney Kelli Muse said.
Xhelili, who calls herself Mary Magdalene on Facebook, has made several posts on social media expressing her support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who she seems to describe as a type of savior in several of her posts.
“Can’t hide I love Trump,” she said in one post. “When I had no hope and I thought everyone was bad, I looked at Trump goodness and speeches (sic)…And I had hope.’”
Xhelili also stated that she believes Martin Luther King Jr is a fraud because, “You can’t be a black Christian.”
