A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned.
Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, Stay down, f----t!
Im walking down some block by myself and then the next thing I know, Im surrounded by a group of Hasidic Jewish men and theyre attacking me, Patterson said. I was alone. I was an easy target. Im black. Im gay, a whole slew of reasons.
The New York City College of Technology student left for a fun night out with friends, and returned with a broken eye socket, a torn retina, blood clotting, and cuts and bruises to his knee and ankles.

"He was so intoxicated that he doesn't remember what he was doing before the incident? Was he walking along minding his own business and these thugs just picked on him for no reason? BTW how did they know he was gay? Was he wearing a sign? Are Hassidics hanging out all night playing the knockout game?"

It wasn’t racism, they just hated his fashion sense.
I think his homeies beat him up for whatever reason. Maybe not paying for his drugs or something. His story sounds really fishy - like all those other “attacks” that proved false.
I have never met a Hasidic who I was worried about being near.
I have met those who are not afraid of standing their ground.
Some game player knocked on the wrong door.
I speculated on another thread on this story that there’s much more going on here than we are hearing. All your points are valild especially how did these people know he was gay. Sounds like a drug deal gone bad.
Another day, another one of these fairy tales.
So where is his PayPal account for sympathy donations?
Gruesome injuries that no one should suffer. But, I can understand the rage of the ones responsible ... oh wait, I’m sounding like a lib.
How did he know they were Hasidic Jews and not Amish tourists?..................
Either he’s lying, or he’s too drunk or drugged out to remember.
If this had happened further south, he’d probably claim it was a gang of violent Amish.
Count me amongst the skeptical....
Expanded “Knock Out” game.
This is more along the lines of Monty Python material...
Hasidic Jews in a gang attack on a gay black person?
I believe this part of the story.
This sounds bogus.
I guess this gay black art student is lucky the ones who found him weren’t other blacks. He’d have been shot.
The media have turned this country into an ethnic time bomb waiting to explode.
The latest “Reichstag fire” incident from the left.
And we all remember how many victimhood hoaxes there have been.
Exactly.. more liberal contrived hate crimes.
oh no, a reverse intifada by violent Jews
The WH will be all over this!
I bet they even ripped his pantyhose
I wonder if he was dressed “fabulous”...
I call B.S. as loudly as I possibly can!!!!

This is the computer age after all.
These publications are getting ridiculous elevating such words to the level of the REAL F word.
I knew sooner or later that these roving bands of Hasidic Jews were going to cause trouble. If they are not careful, people may begin to randomly assault Jews world wide for no apparent reason.
I live in a “diverse” area that has gays and Orthodox Jews living together. This seems bogus, but what do I know?
hey wait- since when do we reveal the race/religion of the perps? did I miss an rules announcement?
...another lying Democrat.
Gay victim fraud.
How did they know you were a homosexual?
it's because Amish tourists are only allowed out between three and four o'clock in the morning.
At 4:30 a.m.? Yeah, right.
He made it up, just like all the others.
Or the fellows who did the job on him made it up and presented it for his required use if he preferred it not to happen again.
Time for obama to start erecting walls around jewish neighborhoods. This is the excuse he has been looking for.
this sounds fake..
That’s a possibility, but it sounds like he was pretty wasted. I don’t think I’d remember the cover story if I was smashed *and* beaten up.
Maybe it was his ex-boyfriend and the ex-boyfriend’s new boyfriend.
So.. no witnesses except the drunk homo?
And this makes the news?
Ding! Ding! Ding!
It’s much more likely he passed out from being so intoxicated. But that wouldn’t win him any ‘victimhood’ points.
That is true. The injuries could be accidental - tripped and fell on his face.
I’m having trouble picturing the Hasidic mob beating him about the ankles!
He’s making it up. It’s what Leftist “activists” do.
Are we sure they were’nt the infamous Amish? If you were drinking the mistake would be understandable.
I should have read a few more replies before posting.
Did they also forget to leave a tip ?
As others have already suggested in skepticism here:
- The principal slur-word against homosexuals in the Yiddish-rich Hasidic vocabulary is not “fa*got” but “fagele.”
- Also, if we are even POSTULATING an attack (... bear in mind, I don’t think it happened like the guy says) by supposedly bigoted ultra-orthodox Jews, wouldn’t it be more likely that such attackers would refer to the victim’s RACE? (”Schvartze,” etc.)
- what were ultra-orthodox Jews even doing up and about at 4:30 a.m.? It was no longer Shabbat, but still, if your religion closely observes sunrises and sunsets, you tend to sleep nights, not days.
You know it was black dudes, or maybe just one.
This guy was blind drunk and got all queery on somebody who wasn’t interested.
You said “fairy tale”!!!???
You can’t say that about a “fashion student”!!!!
