Masslive is reporting that the lawyer for Robin Rhodes, the Worcester man accused of committing a hate crime against a Muslim woman at JFK airport, says the entire thing is overblown. Turtleboy is gonna take it one step further and report information we’ve been given by credible sources – Robin Rhodes is the victim and the story is almost entirely made up. Here’s what we are told actually happened:
“The woman doesn’t actually work for Delta, she works for some contracted transport company at the airport. So he was in between flights home from a vacation in Aruba and wanted to change out of his clothes and tried two bathrooms close to each other that were locked and then tried to open the third door. Apparently the girl was in her chair praying and the door hit her and she freaked out and starting calling him things and saying how he’s a Trump supporter etc. So he tried to get the lady to relax and argued back a little because she was going nuts and walked away. But before he knew it the security was coming for him with her, screaming that he disrespected her while she was praying and that he said Trump was taking over now and some other crap. There were no witnesses. The doors had no signs on them so he didn’t know which was the bathroom. He had to wait the whole weekend to get bail, and originally they wanted $100,000. Guess he’s pretty messed up over it. I really don’t think on his way back from Aruba he said I want to mess with some Muslim. He’s a geek.”
So we did some research. First, it’s been widely reported that this woman was a Delta employee. She was not. She works for a company called ISS, which Delta contracts to do a lot of things at two airports, including running the Sky Club. Most media outlets ignored that fact. The local CBS affiliate in San Francisco is the only one that mentions ISS. This doesn’t prove that it didn’t happen, but it certainly shows that the mainstream media cannot be trusted to report the truth.
This is what the Sky Club looks like in JFK airport:
It’s like a Panera Bread for world travelers. As you can see, it’s not that big. And if this incident happened as the woman says it did:
Rhodes moved away from the door and Khan ran out of the office. Rhodes followed her, got down on his knees and began to bow down in imitation of a Muslim praying, shouted obscenities and said “Trump is here now. He will get rid of all of you. You can ask Germany, Belgium and France about these kind of people. You see what happens,”
Then a bunch of people would’ve witnessed it, and someone would’ve taped it. It’s simply not believable that something like this could happen in such a public setting and no one would record it.
Here’s another fact – Delta is very sensitive to any sort of allegations of Islamophobia. Last May they were sued by one of their former employees because one of their other employees accidentally threw his prayer rug in the trash while she was cleaning out one of the closets.
Then in December Youtube prankster Adam Saleh made national headlines when he Facebook Lived himself getting kicked off a Delta flight because he spoke in Arabic and this upset people. So yea, if an ISS employee who happens to be a 60 year old Muslim woman says that some white guy from Worcester did something Islamophobic to her, obviously they’re gonna believe her.
Oh yea, and he wasn’t arrested by the NYPD. He was arrested by the airport police. Who aren’t even really police. They arrested him because she ran and got them first.
So why was he charged if he didn’t do anything? Simple – politics. District Attorney Richard Brown is an old white guy in a borough that’s anything but that. In the last 10 years alone Queens Muslim population has doubled. There are 57 mosques in Queens in 2010, but there were only 31 in 2000. Muslim people vote, and this woman more than likely lives in Queens. The DA could afford to arrest and charge the white guy from Worcester. He can’t afford to lose the support of the growing Muslim population in his county.
Wouldn’t be the first time a district attorney has arrested someone unjustly for political gain. Durham, NC District Attorney Mike Nifong made national headlines when he charged three Duke lacrosse players with raping a black woman. It turns out the entire thing was made up and the stripper was insane. He lied and withheld evidence that would later exonerate the three Duke students because the stripper was black, and Durham County has a sizable black population. But before the truth came to light Mike Nifong was reelected in a close election, largely because he carried the black vote by so much.
Then there’s Baltimore County DA Marilyn Mosby. She arrested six Baltimore cops and charged them with ridiculous crimes which would prove to be impossible to convict in court. All six officers ended up having their cases dismissed after a string of not guilty verdicts from African-American judges. Of course she did this because she’s elected by a city that’s mostly black, and Freddie Gray was a black man who died in police custody.
This is why electing DA’s is dangerous. Because they’re politicians, and all politicians care about are appearances and numbers.
The bottom line is that this case is going to end up getting dismissed. There’s cameras all over the place, and they’ll confirm that she was likely lying about most of this. She’s a working class woman who was upset with this first class passenger because he bumped her and interrupted her prayer time. Gender mixing during Muslim prayer time is a big no-no. Then they got into an argument because she freaked out about it, and she made up the part about Trump because when you do that you get everyone’s attention. Blaming Trump for your problems is so hot right now.
Most importantly, Robin Rhodes is a mild-mannered nerdy guy who has no reason to do what he is alleged to have done. His past history shows no signs of any ill will towards Muslims, or love for Donald Trump. And as we showed last week, he’s given thousand and thousands of dollars to Congressman Jim McGovern, a staunch critic of President Trump:
We’ve spoken to people who know him from the Country Club. Many of them don’t like him BECAUSE he’s such an opinionated liberal. And opinionated liberals don’t attack Muslim women in the name of Donald Trump. Case closed.
