Ben Shapiro Banned From St. Olaf College On Anniversary of …

NORTHFIELD, Minn. St. Olaf College has banned conservative commentator Ben Shapiro from appearing on campus this April, saying the event poorly coincides with the anniversary of last years hate crime hoax.

Conservative students at St. Olaf have been working since November to coordinate an event on campus featuring Shapiro. The event, sponsored by Turning Point USA, was scheduled for April 23, however, the administration called off the event a week before the contract was set to be finalized, calling the timing inappropriate.

Last April, St. Olaf erupted in protests triggered by a racist note left on an African American students car. The note was eventually revealed to be a hoax designed to draw attention and stir up racial discord on campus. Despite the source of the protests being fake, the school administration said the campus is still healing and having Shapiro speak nearing the anniversary of the disturbance would be deeply concerning.

The issue is not about whether Ben Shapiro can come to our campus, but when, St. Olaf President David Anderson wrote in an email to the event organizers. As you all know, the only date that Mr. Shapiro has indicated he is willing to travel to our campus is at a time that coincides with the anniversary of last years protests. This is deeply concerning. Our campus is still healing from that experience.

The administration has failed to explain why they are attempting to connect Shapiro with the racial hoax, instead merely dismissing the timing as inappropriate. Anderson claims they want the campus community to be focused on building unity as they approach the anniversary of the protests, saying an event featuring Shapiro would be counterproductive to that goal.

One year after the unrest, I would like this to be a time where our community is focused on building unity, Anderson wrote in an email. For these reasons, having Mr. Shapiro come during the last week of April is counterproductive to that goal, and inappropriate.

Conservative student and Turning Point USA chapter President Kathryn Hinderaker has been leading the efforts to bring Shapiro to campus, working to coordinate the event for almost a year when the administration shut it down. Hinderaker understands the desire prevent further provocation, however, she rejects the notion that Shapiro and the hate crime hoax have anything in common.

Ben [Shapiro] and the racist note have absolutely nothing in common, so having them on the same day should be no issue at all if the school has any interest in fostering intellectual diversity among its students, Hinderaker told Alpha News. I had students emailing me for days after that expressing how disappointed they were in the administration. They robbed their students of an incredible opportunity, and I find that to be a real shame.

According to Hinderaker, the schools actions not only highlight a double standards for conservatives on campus, but also try to make a connection between racism and conservatism, an assumption she calls completely false and offensive.

Would they allow a liberal speaker to speak on this day? Of course they would. This shows the connection the school is supposing between racism and conservatism. This assumption is not only completely false, but offensive, Hinderaker said. The school considering conservative thought to be racist shows a deep lack of understanding, along with a clear unwillingness to foster civil discussion among their students.

The administration attempted to remedy the situation by encouraging the event coordinators to find another date. Having spent months working to secure the April date, Hinderaker explained there were no other 2018 dates available. Despite the inability to reschedule, the administration refused to reverse their decision. However, Hinderaker said the conservative groups on campus will continue to try to secure another conservative speaker for this spring.

We are already planning to bring in a different speaker this spring, and hope to bring in a another conservative speaker this fall, Hinderaker said. Hopefully we will be allowed to follow through with these events.

Terrorist-tied Linda Sarsour SCAMS Americans Out of 80k …

Another day, and more misinformed liberal getting scammed out of their money in an effort to alleviate their white guilt. Noted Islamic-extremistLinda Sarsour, who hates western culture, loves sharia law, hates Christians, and hates men, recently managed to scam Americans out of 80,000 based on a completely fabricated hate crime hoax. On June 4th, Linda Sarsour tweet out the following along with a picture of a Muslum woman who has a bruised lip and nose:

She doubled down on June 5th:

Sarsour started a fund-raising campaign forWarsame with a $100,000 goal, stating thatWarsame will miss work due to her injuries.So, just to examine this, Warsames injuriesare expected to heal in two weeks. That is $100,000 for two weeks, and only half a day spent in the hospital. That would mean if 100k is two weeks of work leave Warsame makes 2.4 million dollars a year at her job. BUT that is not the real issue here.

The real issue is that this entire hate crime report has been a disproven hoax.Warsame along with a few other men and women began attacking a group of neighbors (of various races, not white men) following a neighborhood dispute that began when Warsame was screaming at and beating her child in a common area of the neighborhood. This story was corroborated by the police department who dismissed any allegations of it being a hate crime.

More VIA Daily Caller:

Samantha Morales says that the Sarsour and CAIR have the story all wrong, including the allegations that racial epithets were hurled at Warsame.

Morales, 31 and of Mexican heritage, says that she was attacked first by a mob of men and women, including Warsame, following a neighborhood argument involving a woman and her son.

What happened is not what she is claiming. The woman that is in the hospital, I feel sorry for her, but she is one of the women who was kicking and hitting me after I got tased, Morales told TheDC in a phone interview on Monday.

Morales, who works as an insurance claims agent, says that her boyfriend, Ricky Boyce, is the man alleged by Sarsour and CAIR to be the white man who hurled racial insults at Warsame.

But both Morales and Boyce say that he uttered no racial pejoratives in Saturdays incident, which they say began after Morales intervened while a woman of African heritage who lives in her apartment complex was yelling at and hitting her son with a shoe.

I didnt even have time to talk to any of them because they were over there jumping [Morales] at the time, Boyce told TheDC, denying that he made racial remarks during the incident.

Morales says that Sarsour and CAIR have ignored another major piece of the story: Morales herself was transported to the emergency room by ambulance because of the injuries she sustained in Saturdays melee.

Theyre not even mentioning that I was the victim. They came at me. The woman thats in the hospital is part of the group that was aggressing me, Morales said.

Morales said that the saga began after she yelled from her porch at a woman who was screaming at her child and hitting him with a shoe in a common area behind her apartment.

I went outside. I wasnt trying to get involved. I just thought the presence of an adult would have stopped her, Morales says.

Who is to blame for the hijab hate crime hoax in Canada?

Monday I wrote about a hoax hate crime in Canada which involved an 11-year-old girl who told adults that a man with scissors had tried to cut her hijab as she walked to school. The school district arranged a press conference featuring the girl, her younger brother, and her mother. During the press conference, police said they were investigating the incident as a hate crime. Within hours, the story became international news and everyone from the Mayor of Toronto to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau weighed in to condemn the attack and express support for the girl. ButMonday police announced the alleged attack never happened. It became clear that the girl had admitted to authorities the whole story was a hoax.

Since Monday there has been a new round of follow-up stories in Canada about the hate hoax. The girls family has offered an apology, claiming they simply believed the girls account was true. Their public statement reads in part:

When our young daughter told the school that she was attacked by a stranger, the school reacted with compassion and support as did the police.

When we arrived at the school on Friday, we were informed what happened and assumed it to be true, just like everyone else. We only went public because we were horrified that there was such a perpetrator who may try to harm someone else.

HuffPost Canada wrote a piece headlined The Girl Who Lied About Hijab Attack Deserves An Apology. Thats taking it a bit too far in my opinion but I do think that there are adults who are ultimately more to blame. Bottom line: An 11-year-old cant arrange a press conference at her own school. That happened because adults, including those working in the media, wanted to spread this story far and wide. The HuffPost story actually gets to the core of the problem[emphasis added]:

When did we assign this level of attention to a childs stories? When race and religion are involved, we seem to lose all perspective. Because the story appeared to be one where hatred was a motivating factor, where a child was attacked for wearing a religious head covering, we felt a kind of national outrage. Did the child know that she was hitting Canadas sensitive button? We dont know.

An editorial in the Calgary Sun reaches a similar conclusion [emphasis added]:

Canadians should show compassion and forgiveness toward this child and her parents.This child was victimized by authority figures around her, who assumed the wors[t] and who couldnt wait to turn her into a poster child for their own agendas.

What were those agendas? CTV News offers some blunt speculation:

Psychologist Dr. Oren Amitay was among those questioning the Toronto District School Board for giving the media access to the girl.

Ive been involved in a number of issues where the school board, acting with the best of intentions but being driven by political correctness and virtue-signalling, has made some wrong calls, he told CTV News Channel on Monday.

Amitay suggests the story may have been pushed forward by an overeager school official who wanted to do the progressive thing, but didnt take the time to properly vet the girls account.

This was definitely the wrong call, he said. And whoever allowed it to go forward should be held accountable in some capacity.

For the record, the same CTV story includes this denial of responsibility:

The Toronto District School Board says it did not organize a formal press conference for the girl.

Our motivation for commenting on the issue at the time was out of compassion, care, concern and support, the TDSB said in a statement on Monday. The school board said it was doing the same as many elected leaders at all levels via interviews and on social media.

I honestly am not sure what that means. The press conference took place at the school with the participation of school officials. If they didnt call it, who did? Are they claiming the family called it? Was the school obligated to agree to that? I dont think so. There were many moments along the way where an adult could have and should have said Maybe we should let the police handle this first. That didnt happen because an anti-Muslim hate crime targeting a child makes a great story for progressives looking to demonstrate their moral outrage.

Here’s The Latest Hate Crime Hoax Caught On Video …

Since the political rise of Donald Trump, the Left has ramped up their coverage of “hate crimes,” many of which have been uncovered to be perpetrated by hoaxers looking to advance a false victimhood narrative.

The latest string of “hate crimes” discovered to be a hoax comes to us from New Jersey, where it turns out a black male vandalized five black churches, for which there is video surveillance evidence. At the time of the attacks, the Left hyped the incidents as evidence of their grim narrative of an America plagued by constant racial targeting, particularly against minorities. In other words, the “hate crimes” helped bolster the Left’s drive to divide the country by race.

A total of five churches saw stained glass windows shattered and church signs broken and damaged.

In the wake of the incidents, Governor-elect Phil Murphy slammed the “cowardly acts” and an investigation was launched.

“Disgusted by reported vandalism of African-American churches across Morristown. These cowardly acts will not shake our faith,” Murphy tweeted. “They will renew our determination to come together as one NJ.”

But it turns out that the targeted churches were not the result of a hate crime spree. According to NJ.com, “Authorities have ruled out bias as the motive in the vandalism of five predominantly black churches after charging a 45-year-old Morristown resident on Sunday.”

The suspect, Zuri C. Towns, apparently attended services at one of the churches as a child. He’s been charged with four counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and one count of third-degree criminal mischief, per NJ.com.

“As a result of the investigation, no evidence was obtained that would indicate this was a bias incident which legally requires purpose to intimidate a person or group based upon their protected class,” said a news release from authorities.

Here’s the church’s pastor talking about the vandalism, over the weekend:

Here’s the video surveillance from Church of God in Christ for All Saints showing Towns throwing rocks at the church.

Hate Crime Hoax Map – American Renaissance – amren.com

Click on markers in the map above to see summary details of each hoax.

For more detailed information, including a sortable spreadsheet view, click here.

* * *

Hate crimes are considered a serious problem. There are increased penalties for crimes motivated even in part by prejudice, and the FBI issues an annual report on hate crimes. Hate crimeswhich are also known as bias crimesare reportedly on the rise since the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump. However, a number of high-profile alleged hate crimes have proven to be hoaxes that were staged by the victim.

How many hate crimes are hoaxes? How often does a black person send himself racist hate mail or a Muslim woman falsely claim that whites tore off her hijab? No government agency counts these incidents, but now we can answer these questions.

We have done an analysis of recent hate-crime hoaxes with a particular concentration on the period beginning June 2015the month Donald Trump announced his candidacyand ending December 2017. We believe there were enough hoaxes in that two-and-a-half year period to provide what we believe are representative data.

We have attempted to include every case of every instance of every kind of bias hoax. The only exceptions are fake bias crimes against people with mental or physical handicaps. These cases are extremely rare, and it is possible that there was not a single reported hoax of this kind during the period beginning in June 2015.

Otherwise, we believe our data, based on an extensive media searches and on existing compilations, are exhaustive. We will also update our database as future hoaxes are reported. If readers know of cases since June 2015 that we have missed, please contact us here.

Findings

It is clear from the map that hoaxes occur in virtually every state, and are most common in population centers. It is also clear from the fine-grained sorting of data that is possible using filters, that of the 101 people who perpetrated hoaxes from June 2015 to December 2017, by far the largest number (44) fabricated acts of bias against blacks. The next most common victim categories of fake bias crimes were Middle Easterners/Muslims (17), non-whites in general (13), and LGBT people (10). Sixty-four percent of the hoaxers are male.

In the FBIs latest hate crimes report, blacks are overrepresented as offenders. They account for 26.1 percent of those cases in which the race of the perpetrator was known, meaning that they were 2.4 times more likely than non-blacks to commit hate crimes. It is not possible to make a direct comparison to whites becauseand this is a long-standing defect in a report that is supposed to highlight race and ethnicitythe report does not clearly distinguish between whites and Hispanics.

In the case of hate-crime hoaxes, black overrepresentation is much greater. As indicated in the graph below, over the last two-and-a-half years, on a per capita basis, blacks were 13.3 times more likely than whites to commit hate-crime hoaxes, and Middle Easterners were 34.7 times more likely. In our data, Hispanics and whites are clearly distinguished, and Hispanics were as likely as whites to perpetrate hate hoaxes. The few cases in which the race of the hoaxer is not known are not included in the graphs that follow.

For the most part, it is correct to assume that bias-crime hoaxes are committed by a member of the group that was falsely targeted: gays commit anti-gay hate hoaxes, and blacks commit anti-black hate hoaxes.

Of cases with whites perpetrators, only 3 of the 18 committed hoaxes in which whites, as a race, were the targets of fake hate; the rest meant to draw sympathy to LGBT people, other non-white groups, or women. A few progressives, for example, have drawn swastikas or written racial slurs in the hope of evoking sympathy for non-whites or to justify increased anti-racist activity.

Whites were therefore more likely to perpetrate hoaxes designed to evoke sympathy for non-whites or Muslims than for whites. We found no case of a non-white committing a false hate crime meant to promote sympathy for whites as a group.

Eighty-nine percent of hoaxers tried to convey the false appearance of racial orin the case of Muslims and Jewsa religious/ethnic bias. If we restrict our analysis to these hoaxesthat is to say, if we exclude cases in which the fake targets of the hate crimes were LGBT people or womenwhites are the group least likely group to be hoaxers, and the multiples for other groups rise accordingly.

Middle Easterners, at 69 times the white rate, were the group most likely to fabricate hoaxes of this kind, and Hispanics were almost twice as likely as whites to be hoaxers.

Many incidents officially reported to the FBI as hate crimes are never solved because the perpetrator is never identified. A certain number of unsolved hate crimes are likely to be hoaxes like the incidents described in detail in our interactive map. In the absence of confirmation there is always the possibility that a bias crime is a fabrication intended to evoke sympathy for the group of which the victim is a member.

We will update our data as new hoaxes come to light.

Again, we urge readers to keep us informed about hoaxesor even suspected hoaxesof which they are aware by sending us press or police reports.

Yet another "hate crime" turns out to be a hoax – Hot Air

This all getting too repetitive at this point. Once again a high profile hate crime involving racist graffiti swept the nation a little over a month ago, creating tremendous excitement in the mainstream media. Were referring to the horrible incident at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School, where five black cadet candidates found racist messages sprayed on message boards outside their dormitory rooms. That kicked off a lengthy investigation and warnings from the schools administration about the need for diversity and all the usual messaging. This served as additional fodder for the SJW crowd, providing proof of what a horrible, racist nation America has become under Trump.

Now, at long last, the mystery has been solved and the hateful racist is being identified. Unfortunately, the perpetrator turned out to be one of the black cadets who was targeted. (Washington Post)

But on Tuesday, the school made a jolting announcement. The person responsible for the racist messages, the academy said, was, in fact, one of the cadet candidates who reported being targeted by them.

The individual admitted responsibility and this was validated by the investigation, academy spokesman Lt. Col. Allen Herritage said in a statement to the Associated Press, adding: Racism has no place at the academy, in any shape or form.

The cadet candidate accused of crafting the messages was not identified, but the Colorado Springs Gazette reported that the individual is no longer enrolled at the school. Sources also told the Gazette the cadet candidate committed the act in a bizarre bid to get out of trouble he faced at the school for other misconduct, the newspaper reported.

Its great that the academy is still reinforcing the message that racism has no place at the academy because thats absolutely true. But it might have been helpful for them to note that this wasnt racism. I dont know how much credence we should give to the former students explanation. Its being claimed that he was attempting to divert attention from other disciplinary action he was facing over performance issues. Perhaps thats the case in this one instance, but most of the time it isnt.

It seems obvious that most of these hoaxes, particularly on college campuses, are designed to perpetuate the image of rampant racism. If you cant find any actual racism to highlight I suppose you have to cook up some on your own. Still, everyone always seems to have an excuse. That black guy in Kansas who claimed that racist graffiti was painted on his car turned out to have done it himself. But he then claimed that it was a Holloween prank that got out of hand.

Pull the other one, Dauntarius. Its got bells on it.

If theres any amusement to be found in this story its the utter puzzlement expressed by the Washington Post reporter as to why someone would possibly do this. You see, the real problem here isnt the people perpetrating the fraud, but the damage being done to the cause.

Its unclear exactly what prompts people to commit these hoaxes, stunts and false reports. But such revelations have become a major concern for civil rights activists who document racist and anti-Semitic incidents, particularly amid a rise in reported hate crimes since the election.

Yes, its all so unclear, isnt it? Its just a mystery for the ages. One couldnt even hazard a guess as to why somebody would do this. The best they can do is craft an explanation like the one used following the other recent hate crime hoax at Kansas State. That one was described as a prank. Oh, it was in very bad taste, of course, but still a prank, right?

The fact is that activists need to have an enemy to battle if they hope to attract the media attention and liberal public sympathy they crave. And if nobody is willing to step up and actually do something racist, an industrious social justice warrior will just have to take matters into their own hands and do it themselves. And then when theyre exposed, what might have been a productive conversation about racial tension (which absolutely still crops up in spots) gets flipped entirely off the rails. Good job, kids.

CAIR Releases App for Reporting ‘Hate Crimes’, ‘Bias Incidents’ – Breitbart News

According to a press release, Making Democracy Work for Everyone willgive users the ability to immediately report bias incidents they experience, which CAIR describes as an important feature during a period of increased hate incidents targeting American Muslims and other minority groups.

The free CAIR app offers advice about an individuals constitutional rights when contacted by law enforcement or the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and when facing discrimination in the workplace or at school, the release continued. It also offers contact information for CAIRs national headquarters in Washington, D.C., and for chapters nationwide.

In the press release, CAIR claimed that a spike in hate crimes against Muslims were due to the election of President Donald Trump.

We urge all American Muslims and their supporters to download CAIRs app and to take advantage of its much-needed features, particularly the function allowing reporting of bias incidents, saidCAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.

CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper also attempted to link hate crimes to President Trump in an interview with CNN.

It has been on the back burner for some time. Its development got accelerated though with the election of Donald Trump, said Hooper to CNN. Its on a daily basis now that we are issuing a statement about some hate crime somewhere in the country, some days multiple incidents. One of the reasons we wanted to make the app is because thats how so many young people access the world, they feel more comfortable using an app than making a phone call sometimes.

A lot of these incidents go unreported so anything we can do to make it easier to report, we want to do, he continued.Anybody can report. Thats one thing weve noticed its not just Muslim-Americans who are experiencing more hate incidents, its all groups of minorities.

There have been dozens of fake hate crimes since the election of President Trump.

Earlier this month, three African-American State University of New York at Albany students received probation and community service after falsely reporting a hate crime. In November 2016, a Muslim student who claimed that her hijab had been pulled off of her head by Trump supporters was charged with creating a hate crime hoax.

In May, a racist letter left on a black students car at St. Olafs College in Minnesota was revealed to be a hoax, while in the same month, an Indianachurch organist admitted that he vandalized his own church with Trump and Nazi slogans.

Other revealed hoaxes include a University of Michigan student who claimed that a white man threatened to set her hijab on fire, a black man who posed as a white man in a racist letter campaign, a man who set fire to an immigrant-owned market in an attempt to frame conservatives, a Muslim Wisconsin student who tagged his own dorm room with anti-Muslim graffiti, a Texan who tagged his own home with racial slurs, a Bowling Green State University student who faked a mugging by Trump supporters, a man who faked KKK crimes and an abduction, and a Muslim who falsely claimed she was threatened for wearing a hijab.

St. Olaf College has banned conservative commentator Ben Shapiro from appearing on campus this April, saying the event poorly coincides with the anniversary of last years hate crime hoax.

The woman that is in the hospital, I feel sorry for her, but she is one of the women who was kicking and hitting me after I got tased, Morales told TheDC in a phone interview on Monday. Morales, who works as an insurance claims agent, says that her boyfriend, Ricky Boyce, is the man alleged by Sarsour and CAIR to be the white man who hurled racial insults at Warsame. But both Morales and Boyce say that he uttered no racial pejoratives in Saturdays incident, which they say began after Morales intervened while a woman of African heritage who lives in her apartment complex was yelling at and hitting her son with a shoe. I didnt even have time to talk to any of them because they were over there jumping [Morales] at the time, Boyce told TheDC, denying that he made racial remarks during the incident. Morales says that Sarsour and CAIR have ignored another major piece of the story: Morales herself was transported to the emergency room by ambulance because of the injuries she sustained in Saturdays melee. Theyre not even mentioning that I was the victim. They came at me. The woman thats in the hospital is part of the group that was aggressing me, Morales said. Morales said that the saga began after she yelled from her porch at a woman who was screaming at her child and hitting him with a shoe in a common area behind her apartment. I went outside. I wasnt trying to get involved. I just thought the presence of an adult would have stopped her, Morales says.

Who is to blame for the hijab hate crime hoax in Canada?

Monday I wrote about a hoax hate crime in Canada which involved an 11-year-old girl who told adults that a man with scissors had tried to cut her hijab as she walked to school. The school district arranged a press conference featuring the girl, her younger brother, and her mother. During the press conference, police said they were investigating the incident as a hate crime. Within hours, the story became international news and everyone from the Mayor of Toronto to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau weighed in to condemn the attack and express support for the girl. ButMonday police announced the alleged attack never happened. It became clear that the girl had admitted to authorities the whole story was a hoax. Since Monday there has been a new round of follow-up stories in Canada about the hate hoax. The girls family has offered an apology, claiming they simply believed the girls account was true. Their public statement reads in part: When our young daughter told the school that she was attacked by a stranger, the school reacted with compassion and support as did the police. When we arrived at the school on Friday, we were informed what happened and assumed it to be true, just like everyone else. We only went public because we were horrified that there was such a perpetrator who may try to harm someone else. HuffPost Canada wrote a piece headlined The Girl Who Lied About Hijab Attack Deserves An Apology. Thats taking it a bit too far in my opinion but I do think that there are adults who are ultimately more to blame. Bottom line: An 11-year-old cant arrange a press conference at her own school. That happened because adults, including those working in the media, wanted to spread this story far and wide. The HuffPost story actually gets to the core of the problem[emphasis added]: When did we assign this level of attention to a childs stories? When race and religion are involved, we seem to lose all perspective. Because the story appeared to be one where hatred was a motivating factor, where a child was attacked for wearing a religious head covering, we felt a kind of national outrage. Did the child know that she was hitting Canadas sensitive button? We dont know. An editorial in the Calgary Sun reaches a similar conclusion [emphasis added]: Canadians should show compassion and forgiveness toward this child and her parents.This child was victimized by authority figures around her, who assumed the wors[t] and who couldnt wait to turn her into a poster child for their own agendas. What were those agendas? CTV News offers some blunt speculation: Psychologist Dr. Oren Amitay was among those questioning the Toronto District School Board for giving the media access to the girl. Ive been involved in a number of issues where the school board, acting with the best of intentions but being driven by political correctness and virtue-signalling, has made some wrong calls, he told CTV News Channel on Monday. Amitay suggests the story may have been pushed forward by an overeager school official who wanted to do the progressive thing, but didnt take the time to properly vet the girls account. This was definitely the wrong call, he said. And whoever allowed it to go forward should be held accountable in some capacity. For the record, the same CTV story includes this denial of responsibility: The Toronto District School Board says it did not organize a formal press conference for the girl. Our motivation for commenting on the issue at the time was out of compassion, care, concern and support, the TDSB said in a statement on Monday. The school board said it was doing the same as many elected leaders at all levels via interviews and on social media. I honestly am not sure what that means. The press conference took place at the school with the participation of school officials. If they didnt call it, who did? Are they claiming the family called it? Was the school obligated to agree to that? I dont think so. There were many moments along the way where an adult could have and should have said Maybe we should let the police handle this first. That didnt happen because an anti-Muslim hate crime targeting a child makes a great story for progressives looking to demonstrate their moral outrage.

Here’s The Latest Hate Crime Hoax Caught On Video …

Since the political rise of Donald Trump, the Left has ramped up their coverage of “hate crimes,” many of which have been uncovered to be perpetrated by hoaxers looking to advance a false victimhood narrative. The latest string of “hate crimes” discovered to be a hoax comes to us from New Jersey, where it turns out a black male vandalized five black churches, for which there is video surveillance evidence. At the time of the attacks, the Left hyped the incidents as evidence of their grim narrative of an America plagued by constant racial targeting, particularly against minorities. In other words, the “hate crimes” helped bolster the Left’s drive to divide the country by race. A total of five churches saw stained glass windows shattered and church signs broken and damaged. In the wake of the incidents, Governor-elect Phil Murphy slammed the “cowardly acts” and an investigation was launched. “Disgusted by reported vandalism of African-American churches across Morristown. These cowardly acts will not shake our faith,” Murphy tweeted. “They will renew our determination to come together as one NJ.” But it turns out that the targeted churches were not the result of a hate crime spree. According to NJ.com, “Authorities have ruled out bias as the motive in the vandalism of five predominantly black churches after charging a 45-year-old Morristown resident on Sunday.” The suspect, Zuri C. Towns, apparently attended services at one of the churches as a child. He’s been charged with four counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief and one count of third-degree criminal mischief, per NJ.com. “As a result of the investigation, no evidence was obtained that would indicate this was a bias incident which legally requires purpose to intimidate a person or group based upon their protected class,” said a news release from authorities. Here’s the church’s pastor talking about the vandalism, over the weekend: Here’s the video surveillance from Church of God in Christ for All Saints showing Towns throwing rocks at the church. WATCH:

Hate Crime Hoax Map – American Renaissance – amren.com

Click on markers in the map above to see summary details of each hoax. For more detailed information, including a sortable spreadsheet view, click here. * * * Hate crimes are considered a serious problem. There are increased penalties for crimes motivated even in part by prejudice, and the FBI issues an annual report on hate crimes. Hate crimeswhich are also known as bias crimesare reportedly on the rise since the candidacy and presidency of Donald Trump. However, a number of high-profile alleged hate crimes have proven to be hoaxes that were staged by the victim. How many hate crimes are hoaxes? How often does a black person send himself racist hate mail or a Muslim woman falsely claim that whites tore off her hijab? No government agency counts these incidents, but now we can answer these questions. We have done an analysis of recent hate-crime hoaxes with a particular concentration on the period beginning June 2015the month Donald Trump announced his candidacyand ending December 2017. We believe there were enough hoaxes in that two-and-a-half year period to provide what we believe are representative data. We have attempted to include every case of every instance of every kind of bias hoax. The only exceptions are fake bias crimes against people with mental or physical handicaps. These cases are extremely rare, and it is possible that there was not a single reported hoax of this kind during the period beginning in June 2015. Otherwise, we believe our data, based on an extensive media searches and on existing compilations, are exhaustive. We will also update our database as future hoaxes are reported. If readers know of cases since June 2015 that we have missed, please contact us here. Findings It is clear from the map that hoaxes occur in virtually every state, and are most common in population centers. It is also clear from the fine-grained sorting of data that is possible using filters, that of the 101 people who perpetrated hoaxes from June 2015 to December 2017, by far the largest number (44) fabricated acts of bias against blacks. The next most common victim categories of fake bias crimes were Middle Easterners/Muslims (17), non-whites in general (13), and LGBT people (10). Sixty-four percent of the hoaxers are male. In the FBIs latest hate crimes report, blacks are overrepresented as offenders. They account for 26.1 percent of those cases in which the race of the perpetrator was known, meaning that they were 2.4 times more likely than non-blacks to commit hate crimes. It is not possible to make a direct comparison to whites becauseand this is a long-standing defect in a report that is supposed to highlight race and ethnicitythe report does not clearly distinguish between whites and Hispanics. In the case of hate-crime hoaxes, black overrepresentation is much greater. As indicated in the graph below, over the last two-and-a-half years, on a per capita basis, blacks were 13.3 times more likely than whites to commit hate-crime hoaxes, and Middle Easterners were 34.7 times more likely. In our data, Hispanics and whites are clearly distinguished, and Hispanics were as likely as whites to perpetrate hate hoaxes. The few cases in which the race of the hoaxer is not known are not included in the graphs that follow. For the most part, it is correct to assume that bias-crime hoaxes are committed by a member of the group that was falsely targeted: gays commit anti-gay hate hoaxes, and blacks commit anti-black hate hoaxes. Of cases with whites perpetrators, only 3 of the 18 committed hoaxes in which whites, as a race, were the targets of fake hate; the rest meant to draw sympathy to LGBT people, other non-white groups, or women. A few progressives, for example, have drawn swastikas or written racial slurs in the hope of evoking sympathy for non-whites or to justify increased anti-racist activity. Whites were therefore more likely to perpetrate hoaxes designed to evoke sympathy for non-whites or Muslims than for whites. We found no case of a non-white committing a false hate crime meant to promote sympathy for whites as a group. Eighty-nine percent of hoaxers tried to convey the false appearance of racial orin the case of Muslims and Jewsa religious/ethnic bias. If we restrict our analysis to these hoaxesthat is to say, if we exclude cases in which the fake targets of the hate crimes were LGBT people or womenwhites are the group least likely group to be hoaxers, and the multiples for other groups rise accordingly. Middle Easterners, at 69 times the white rate, were the group most likely to fabricate hoaxes of this kind, and Hispanics were almost twice as likely as whites to be hoaxers. Many incidents officially reported to the FBI as hate crimes are never solved because the perpetrator is never identified. A certain number of unsolved hate crimes are likely to be hoaxes like the incidents described in detail in our interactive map. In the absence of confirmation there is always the possibility that a bias crime is a fabrication intended to evoke sympathy for the group of which the victim is a member. We will update our data as new hoaxes come to light. Again, we urge readers to keep us informed about hoaxesor even suspected hoaxesof which they are aware by sending us press or police reports.

Yet another "hate crime" turns out to be a hoax – Hot Air

This all getting too repetitive at this point. Once again a high profile hate crime involving racist graffiti swept the nation a little over a month ago, creating tremendous excitement in the mainstream media. Were referring to the horrible incident at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School, where five black cadet candidates found racist messages sprayed on message boards outside their dormitory rooms. That kicked off a lengthy investigation and warnings from the schools administration about the need for diversity and all the usual messaging. This served as additional fodder for the SJW crowd, providing proof of what a horrible, racist nation America has become under Trump. Now, at long last, the mystery has been solved and the hateful racist is being identified. Unfortunately, the perpetrator turned out to be one of the black cadets who was targeted. (Washington Post) But on Tuesday, the school made a jolting announcement. The person responsible for the racist messages, the academy said, was, in fact, one of the cadet candidates who reported being targeted by them. The individual admitted responsibility and this was validated by the investigation, academy spokesman Lt. Col. Allen Herritage said in a statement to the Associated Press, adding: Racism has no place at the academy, in any shape or form. The cadet candidate accused of crafting the messages was not identified, but the Colorado Springs Gazette reported that the individual is no longer enrolled at the school. Sources also told the Gazette the cadet candidate committed the act in a bizarre bid to get out of trouble he faced at the school for other misconduct, the newspaper reported. Its great that the academy is still reinforcing the message that racism has no place at the academy because thats absolutely true. But it might have been helpful for them to note that this wasnt racism. I dont know how much credence we should give to the former students explanation. Its being claimed that he was attempting to divert attention from other disciplinary action he was facing over performance issues. Perhaps thats the case in this one instance, but most of the time it isnt. It seems obvious that most of these hoaxes, particularly on college campuses, are designed to perpetuate the image of rampant racism. If you cant find any actual racism to highlight I suppose you have to cook up some on your own. Still, everyone always seems to have an excuse. That black guy in Kansas who claimed that racist graffiti was painted on his car turned out to have done it himself. But he then claimed that it was a Holloween prank that got out of hand. Pull the other one, Dauntarius. Its got bells on it. If theres any amusement to be found in this story its the utter puzzlement expressed by the Washington Post reporter as to why someone would possibly do this. You see, the real problem here isnt the people perpetrating the fraud, but the damage being done to the cause. Its unclear exactly what prompts people to commit these hoaxes, stunts and false reports. But such revelations have become a major concern for civil rights activists who document racist and anti-Semitic incidents, particularly amid a rise in reported hate crimes since the election. Yes, its all so unclear, isnt it? Its just a mystery for the ages. One couldnt even hazard a guess as to why somebody would do this. The best they can do is craft an explanation like the one used following the other recent hate crime hoax at Kansas State. That one was described as a prank. Oh, it was in very bad taste, of course, but still a prank, right? The fact is that activists need to have an enemy to battle if they hope to attract the media attention and liberal public sympathy they crave. And if nobody is willing to step up and actually do something racist, an industrious social justice warrior will just have to take matters into their own hands and do it themselves. And then when theyre exposed, what might have been a productive conversation about racial tension (which absolutely still crops up in spots) gets flipped entirely off the rails. Good job, kids.

Hate Crime Hoaxes – reddit

Hate Crime Hoaxes (HCH) A subreddit dedicated to cataloging incidents where people have lied about being the victim of a hate crime. Rules are few, but important: Posts should primarily be direct links to news articles describing the incident. Articles regarding hate crime hoax statistics are also welcomed, as are stories of HCH from other countries or articles examining the media’s role in promoting hoaxes. Try to summarize the background of the hoax as best you can in the headline without editorializing. Try to be as clinical as possible this means refraining from vitriol and sarcasm. Note the date of the article and the city/state where the hoax took place in the headline title. This makes it easier to search for duplicates. Please do not submit duplicate of the same event without a good reason. Karma is not a good reason. Seeing that the existing article leaves out a ton of important details or comes from a questionable source are good reasons to submit a better one. Duplicate stories are subject to removal. Local news sources are best. If an interesting topic is discussed in a blog, HuffPo, AmmoLand, etc. look for the link to the original news article. Mods reserve the right to replace posts with a more relevant link. Off-topic and opinion pieces will be considered for deletion. Commenting is unmoderated, except in instances where the comment violates Reddit’s policies (giving out personal info, for example). Blatantly racist comments will result in an immediate ban. Terms like Jew, Jewess, blackie, whitey, chink, cunt, Pope worshipper etc are examples of descriptions that are unnecessarily inflammatory. Identity politics and attention whoring knows no limit based on race, gender or ideology.

CAIR Releases App for Reporting ‘Hate Crimes’, ‘Bias Incidents’ – Breitbart News

According to a press release, Making Democracy Work for Everyone willgive users the ability to immediately report bias incidents they experience, which CAIR describes as an important feature during a period of increased hate incidents targeting American Muslims and other minority groups. The free CAIR app offers advice about an individuals constitutional rights when contacted by law enforcement or the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and when facing discrimination in the workplace or at school, the release continued. It also offers contact information for CAIRs national headquarters in Washington, D.C., and for chapters nationwide. In the press release, CAIR claimed that a spike in hate crimes against Muslims were due to the election of President Donald Trump. We urge all American Muslims and their supporters to download CAIRs app and to take advantage of its much-needed features, particularly the function allowing reporting of bias incidents, saidCAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. CAIR spokesman Ibrahim Hooper also attempted to link hate crimes to President Trump in an interview with CNN. It has been on the back burner for some time. Its development got accelerated though with the election of Donald Trump, said Hooper to CNN. Its on a daily basis now that we are issuing a statement about some hate crime somewhere in the country, some days multiple incidents. One of the reasons we wanted to make the app is because thats how so many young people access the world, they feel more comfortable using an app than making a phone call sometimes. A lot of these incidents go unreported so anything we can do to make it easier to report, we want to do, he continued.Anybody can report. Thats one thing weve noticed its not just Muslim-Americans who are experiencing more hate incidents, its all groups of minorities. There have been dozens of fake hate crimes since the election of President Trump. Earlier this month, three African-American State University of New York at Albany students received probation and community service after falsely reporting a hate crime. In November 2016, a Muslim student who claimed that her hijab had been pulled off of her head by Trump supporters was charged with creating a hate crime hoax. In May, a racist letter left on a black students car at St. Olafs College in Minnesota was revealed to be a hoax, while in the same month, an Indianachurch organist admitted that he vandalized his own church with Trump and Nazi slogans. Other revealed hoaxes include a University of Michigan student who claimed that a white man threatened to set her hijab on fire, a black man who posed as a white man in a racist letter campaign, a man who set fire to an immigrant-owned market in an attempt to frame conservatives, a Muslim Wisconsin student who tagged his own dorm room with anti-Muslim graffiti, a Texan who tagged his own home with racial slurs, a Bowling Green State University student who faked a mugging by Trump supporters, a man who faked KKK crimes and an abduction, and a Muslim who falsely claimed she was threatened for wearing a hijab.
