It looks like the ripple effect from the NZ mass memeing is now spreading.
Hours after dozens of people were killed in an attack on two mosques in New Zealand, a man was attacked “with a hammer” and a “batten” outside an east London mosque.
A group of three men shouted Islamophobic abuse as they drove past the place of worship on Cannon Street Road, eyewitnesses said.
They called people attending Friday prayers “terrorists”, they added.
A few worshippers followed the blue car, only for the men to climb out of the vehicle and attack one of them with a weapon, thought to be a hammer. Police said the 27-year-old victim sustained head injuries.
So the victims chased down and started a fight with the aggressors? Am I reading that right, fake news? Ridiculous.
The two groups fought before the men climbed back into the car and drove away.
In the video, you can clearly see Moslems armed with what look to be knives or lead pipes attacking a car trying to escape.
They didn’t think twice
At one point, it looks like a brick is thrown at the car, and one of the hajis clambers up on the front end of the car to try and stop it.
In a clip filmed by a witness, one of the alleged attackers can be seen clinging to the car’s bonnet in an attempt to get away.
That’s one way to get around town, sure.
From the video, it’s clear that the back windshield has been broken by the “victims” who are giving chase.
Both White and Moslems seem to have been emboldened by the NZ attack.
Although I shouldn’t say that just yet. This is just one encounter. But it would make sense that Whites would feel inspired by the shooting and Moslems would be incensed to take revenge as well. Both sides inflamed, just like the shooter said they would be in his meme-ifesto.
