A North Carolina woman known for her racist rants that were captured on video is being accused of attacking a 14-year-old and ripping the hijab off another woman, the Citizen Times reports.

Rachel Dawn Ruit first received notoriety when she was caught on video yelling racial slurs and threatening people in downtown Asheville. But on July 4, her threats turned physical when she ripped off the hijab from a woman and attacked the 14-year-old, who is Black.

Ernesta Carter witnessed Ruit attack the girl after saying she needed to be “put down” and if she fought back “she would be raped.” Ruit then grabbed the girl by the groin, Carter said. When Carter started running towards the altercation, that’s when Ruit targeted Nahlah Karimah who was the woman wearing the hijab.

Carter then saw Ruit jump on top of the girl, “clawing and biting her,” grabbing the girl’s necklace and choking her.

“When I tried to pull her off the black child, other racists jumped in” and put the woman wearing the hijab in a chokehold. At one point, someone pulled out a can of pepper spray.

Ruit was later arrested at a hospital where she, Karimah, and the girl were being treated. Ruit was charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and second-degree trespass. She was released on $1,000 bail.

Published

The president's 2020 election campaign continues to play defense in Arizona, a once reliably-Republican state.

"President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is looking to shore up support among a specific population of Arizonans: members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," the Arizona Republica reported Monday. "Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Mesa Tuesday to help launch a 'Latter-day Saints for Trump' coalition in what appears to be a late-in-the-game play to win over LDS voters, who tend to vote Republican but hold values that clash with some of the president's."

Politico on Monday reported on how Donald Trump may have imperiled his 2020 presidential campaign by failing to reach a deal with Congress on the next round of stimulus.
