WorldNetDaily reports a decision by Hillary Clinton to jump the gun and decry “racism and violence” by a group of white men in New York has blown up in the Democrat front-runner’s face.Three University of Albany students claimed they were the victims of a racial attack on a CDTA bus Jan. 30, which prompted the former secretary of state to magnify their story on social media Feb. 4. After race protests on campus, a #DefendBlackGirlsUAlbany Twitter campaign, and tearful speeches, police now say a white girl was the real victim.“A whole bunch of guys started hitting me and my two friends, punching us in the head,” Asha Burwell wrote in an Instagram post after the incident. She also said the driver “let the bus sit at the stop at the social science building while my friend got beat in the head by white guys.”
Cops have charged Ariel Agudio, Alexis Briggs and Burwell, all 20 years old, with misdemeanor assault and attempted criminal mischief, the Albany Times Union reported Thursday. Clinton has not addressed her previous show of support for the girls, one of which yelled “white b–ch!” at a 19-year-old commuter.
