Video shows stranger attacking Asian woman with hammer in NYC

Source: NBC

An Asian woman in New York City was attacked in the head with a hammer by a stranger who demanded the victim remove her mask, police said Monday.

*snip*

Hours before the attack, hundreds of New Yorkers, including city officials, gathered at a rally in Flushing, Queens, denouncing the wave of hate crimes against Asian American communities.

“If you hate, get the hell out of here because you don’t deserve to live in New York City,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at Sunday's rally.

On Saturday afternoon, a group of five teens punched a 15-year-old Asian boy while spewing anti-Asian remarks at him in Rego Park, Queens, according to authorities. The boy was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

8. This has nothing to do with Trump.

This racism has been going on forever. It needs to be called out for what it is and the racists in this case and their enablers need to be called out as well.

I hate Trump, but this isn't him.

9. Well, it's a lot bigger than him - sure. But certainly not "nothing" to do with Trump.

Yes, hatred against Asians (or any minority) long predated Needy Amin - and yet, there's no question he's exacerbated and weaponized it.

And just when public anxiety was at its highest.

19. Look I get that racism is part of this country. But the frequency has increased due to the rhetoric

of one orange asshole who made it OK. Review footage of his early rallies if need be. This resonated with the existing deplorables and they feel entitled to act upon the messaging. That is what is playing out.

13. We need to own this ourselves.

We just look silly blaming Trump for an assault on Asian women by a black woman in NYC. Biden won NYC with over 70% of the vote, and 90% of Black women voted for Biden nationally. The idea that we can blame Trump for this stuff is absurd.

Not everyone that votes on our side is a good person, and we look better if we're honest about faults, and don't pass the blame when it's deserved.

15. Trump still deserves a ton of blame.

Even if the attackers are not Trump loving deplorables, it's clear his rhetoric has permeated throughout the spectrum.
