Hate Crime Hoax Spree Continues, This Time Hitting A Small College – The Daily Caller

A small college in Minnesota was shutdown by protests earlier this month due to concerns about a racist note found on a students car. St. Olaf College announced Wednesday that the note was a hoax perpetrated by a student seeking to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate.

This is the second high-profile hate crime this month that has been discovered to be a false flag. Last week, a church organist in Indiana was arrested for spray painting his own church in an attempt to mobilize a movement.

The hoax at St. Olaf College did indeed start a movement as a protest cancelled classes on May 1. Two days prior, a student said she found a letter on her car that read: I am so glad that you are leaving soon. One less nigger that this school has to deal with. You have spoken up too much. You will change nothing. Shut up or I will shut you up.

This lead to days of demonstrations with students chanting: This ends now. Local police ended up investigating who was behind the note and two other racist ones reportedly found.

Were confident that there is no ongoing threat from this incident to individuals or the community as a whole, St. Olaf College president David Anderson said in a school-wide message. In another email he added, The reason I said in my earlier note that this was not a genuine threat is that we learned from the authors confession that the note was fabricated. It was apparently a strategy to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Samantha Wells, the black student who found the note, wrote on social media, I will be saying it was a hoax. I dont care. There is nothing more that I can do.

Wells told police last week that she doesnt want to file a report and didnt show law enforcement the note as she took [it] outside and had a ceremonial burning to destroy it.

The Daily Caller has done extensive reporting on the recent surge in fake hate crimes.
