Real perpetrators, real victims of religious persecution.
Jeremy Joseph Christian is a 35 year-old white man who, according to some press reports, is also a “white supremacist.”
Christian, you see, while aboard a train in Portland, Oregon, allegedly hurled “ethnic and religious” slurs at two young women who, evidently, appeared to have been Muslim. “Get off the bus and get out of the country because you don’t pay taxes here,” Christian is reported to have said. He also, supposedly, expressed a dislike for Muslims and characterized them as “criminals.”
Three men who are now being hailed as “heroes” intervened. Christian killed two of them, slashing their throats. The third man was stabbed as well, but survived and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
