This time, the invisible hordes of haters are (not) seen in Austria.

From The Daily Mail:

PUBLISHED: 11:19 EST, 19 January 2017

A 14-year-old Muslim girl who claimed she was pushed in front of a train simply for wearing a headscarf has been challenged after police checked CCTV tapes.

The girl, identified only as Sinem, claimed on social media she had been called a ‘terrorist’ and was pushed onto the tracks by a man who had taken offence at her headscarf at a railway station in the Austrian capital of Vienna.

She told an online anti-racism forum she was only saved at the ‘last second’ by another man who pulled her onto the platform before the S-Bahn train arrived at Wien-Döbling station.

The girl, whose parents are originally from Turkey, said she was taken to hospital with minor injuries and her parents filed a criminal complaint after hearing what had happened.

But The Local reported that Vienna police spokesman Irina Steirer said officers had searched through tapes of CCTV cameras on the platform and found no trace of the incident the girl described.

She said: ‘We have looked through the CCTV and at the time when the incident is alleged to have occurred nothing can be seen on the records.

‘Both the alleged victim and the accused are captured on CCTV, but nothing ever happens and they are both simply seen getting on the train.’ …

The original claim was widely reported in the Austrian media and one anti-racism group blamed Austrian Foreign and Integration Minister Sebastian Kurz for having called for a ban on civil servants wearing headscarves.

Last month an American woman, Yasmin Seweid, claimed three men shouting ‘Donald Trump!’ attacked her and tried to pull her hijab off in the New York subway.

New York Police Department later claimed she had made the incident up and have charged her with filing a false report and obstructing governmental administration.

But Science demonstrates that Hate Waves are invisible.
