It seems that Rolling Stone, months after holes (big enough to drive a truck through) were poked through the alleged rape case that was said to have occurred at the University of Virginia.

Via Yahoo news

The author of Rolling Stone’s discredited “A Rape on Campus” story, Sabrina Rubin Erderly, will apologize Sunday in conjunction with the release of the Columbia Journalism School’s external review of the erroneous story, according to media reports.

Rolling Stone will also pull the story from its site and put Columbia’s review in its place, Brian Stelter reported Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” The decision to take the story down is a fairly unprecedented step in the digital media era.

The reportedly 12,000-word review is expected to be a damning piece that places fault in all corners of Rolling Stone for errors made in the reporting and storytelling process for the campus rape story, published in November. Rolling Stone will also be taking responsibility for its errors, Stelter reported.

The review will be authored by Columbia Journalism School Dean Steve Coll. It is expected to be published on the Columbia Journalism Review’s website as well as on Rolling Stone’s site.

In March, police in Charlottesvile, Virgina issued their investigation’s findings, saying they found no evidence a rape occurred at the University of Virginia on the night in question in 2012.

Of course, there will be no disciplinary action taken in this case.

Via CNN

Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner has decided not to take any disciplinary action against the editors or fact-checkers involved in the discredited story “A Rape on Campus.”

This means no one will be dismissed or suspended as a result of the error-filled story, according to people with direct knowledge of the decision.

Wenner believes the missteps by the magazine’s staff members — from managing editor Will Dana on down — were unintentional, not purposefully deceitful.

After all, the truth wasn’t a goal in writing this story.  The goal was advancing a narrative.  The only actual issue for Rolling Stone, in my opinion, is that they were caught.

But what did they think about Klingon Disruptors?

OK, maybe it wasn’t a Klingon Disruptor, but the Kossacks really stepped in it when they decided to run a story about the guns that could be purchased and carried in Georgia.  The Mental Recession has more…

The Daily Kos, a far, far, far left-leaning group of basement dwellers, has posted a handy guide for their readers to see what guns can be purchased and carried in Georgia under the new Guns Everywhere Law.  The member post, titled GUNS, GOONS, AND GEORGIA, even includes a poster-type image of such guns.

Problem is, the author used a poster full of toy guns, including a “pulse rifle” which can only be seen in science fiction movies such as Aliens.

The caption below the image reads:

“These guns can be purchased anywhere in Georgia and carried into a church, bar, school or library.”

Here is the image:

Toy Guns

As they are toy guns, they indeed could be purchased and carried openly in Georgia.  The lone exception being the pulse rifle.  Because …

It.  Doesn’t.  Exist.

The Aliens Versus Predators site describes the pulse rifle as a “22nd century” era weapon used in “various engagements with the Xenomorph and Yautja” alien species.

Alrighty then.  the Kossacks got caught lamenting the availability of fictitious toy guns.

However, in “gun free Chicago,” there were over 80 completely unexplainable cases of Sudden Onset Lead Poisoning during the July 4th weekend.   Good thing they have tough gun laws out there, isn’t it?

And by the way, how much would  one of those Pulse Rifles set me back? Or, maybe even  a Klingon Disruptor?

Faking an Atrocity: Eleven Fake Hate Crimes, And the Liberals That Stage Them

Share

One of the predictable things about liberalism are all the lies-not just those needed to present their ‘ideas,” but all the other lies needed to perpetuate them.  After all, when you entire ideology is based on lies, you have to lie a lot to do keep the train wreck moving forward.  Here is a list of recent hate crimes perpetrated by liberals, against themselves…

Perhaps attempting some misguided publicity stunt or perhaps trying to make others see hate where there is none, these people have gone to great lengths to claim they’ve been targeted. Here’s a look back at some of the most recent and egregious hate-crime hoaxes:

1. At Hofstra University in 2009, a freshman girl claimed she was gang-raped by five men in a dormitory, only to recant her claims when a video of the sexual encounter surfaced showing she was not forced at all. Four men were arrested before she finally admitted she was lying.

2. Meghan Lanker-Simons of the University of Wyoming anonymously posted fake rape threats to herself on Facebook in 2013 in a case that got national media attention.When police investigated the incident, they found “substantial evidence” that Lanker-Simons posted the fake rape threat from her own personal computer while it was in her possession.

3. A little over a year ago at Oberlin College, two students conducted a massive series of racist stunts such as putting up a Nazi flag, passing out anti-Islamic fliers, and putting a “whites only” sign above a water fountain. After getting classes cancelled for a “Day of Solidarity,” one of the students said that the entire thing was a “joke” in order to get an “overreaction.”

4. In one of the most famous hate-crime hoaxes of late, Crystal Mangum falsely accused three Duke lacrosse players of raping her in 2006. Following the allegations, the Duke lacrosse team was suspended for two games; the coach, Mike Pressler, was forced to resign; and the three accused were arrested and vilified by the national media. The charges were eventually dropped and Mike Nifong, the corrupt Durham County district attorney, was removed, disbarred, and sued into bankruptcy. In November 2013 Mangum was convicted of murdering her boyfriend.

5. Last year, a lesbian waitress in Connecticut, Dayna Morales, claimed that a couple wrote on a receipt, “I’m sorry but I cannot tip because I don’t agree with your lifestyle & how you live your life.” After Morales gained national media attention and received thousands of dollars in donations that she promised she would give to Wounded Warriors, the accused couple revealed that they wrote no such note and actually left a rather generous 20-percent tip. Morales was exposed as having a history of lying, and Wounded Warriors said that they had never received a donation from Morales.

6. Oprah Winfrey whirled up a media frenzy last year after accusing a Swiss sales assistant of racism. Winfrey said the saleswoman told her that “you don’t want to see this bag” because Winfrey is black. ”It is too expensive. You cannot afford it.” The sales assistant felt powerless caught in the media “cyclone,” as she put it, and flatly denied having ever told Winfrey she could not afford the item. “I don’t know why she is making these accusations,” the saleslady said. “She is so powerful and I am just a shop girl.” 

7. Last fall Vassar College was struck by a string of hateful remarks spray-painted on student residences, including “Fuck N*ggers” and “Hey Tranny, Know Your Place.” A few days after the university’s Bias Incident Response Team reported that multiple offenses had occurred on campus, the university announced that the perpetrators were actually two members of the Bias Incident Response Team.

8. Two gay parents were throwing a birthday party for their child earlier this year when they received a note from a homophobic parent saying her child would not attend the party because she would “not subject my innocent son to your ‘lifestyle.’” The media were outraged until it was revealed that there were no gay parents, no allegedly homophobic parent, and no birthday party. In fact, the entire spectacle was a joke created by a New York radio show in order to “spur a healthy discourse on a highly passionate topic,” as they explained.

9. In 2011, two lesbians told authorities that someone had spray-painted “Kill the Gay” on their garage and left a noose at their door. They said it was probably the Homeowner’s Association retaliating against over a dispute about their dog. However, the FBI investigated and found out that the women had spray-painted their garage themselves and likewise had placed the noose on their own doorstep. They were charged with criminal mischief and false reporting.

10. Joseph Baken claimed that three men had beaten him after he came out as a homosexual at a bar. A picture of his bruised faced was widely circulated online, and Baken was held up as a victim of homophobia. Soon after his short rise to fame, a video surfaced showing Baken attempting a backflip on a paved street. He struck his face on the curb exactly where the injuries were in his viral picture. Soon after, he pled guilty to filing a false police report.

11. Alexandra Pennell, a student at Central Connecticut State University, reported that she had received an anti-gay message under her door. As an apparent target of hate, she spoke at an anti-hate rally for hundreds of students. But when the police tried, through a surveillance camera outside her room, tried to find out who it was, they found that the camera had been disabled. After setting up a hidden camera, they discovered Pennell was the one writing her own hate letters. She did not admit it until the police showed her the video.

When your lie is that you are hated and under attack, and there are no real attacks, you have to invent the attacks.   In the mean time, liberals terrorize anyone who disagrees with them.

You know; tolerance!

Fake Hate Crime: Tennesse Anti-gay “Hate Crime” Faked?

Share

It seems that when reality doesn’t fit the narrative, reality will be invented. At least that’s what folks in the feminazi crowd, like Meg Lanker Simons, and in the Gay community, like Joseph Baken, like to do.  When they can’t claim real hate, they create some. Consider it, “do it yourself social engineering.”  There is another case in the works, and The Other McCain has more from Tennessee, where Joe Williams had an attack that might just have been self inflicted…

Whether or not Paris, Tennessee, is such a hotbed of homophobic hatred as to cause Williams to fear for his life, however, it now appears that this alleged hate crime never happened:

A man who told police he had been robbed and beaten at a Paris health food store a few days before Thanksgiving was arrested after he allegedly withheld information about the incident and has now been charged with filing a false report.
Joe Williams, 32, of 803 E. Wood St. was arrested [Dec. 20] after turning himself in at the Henry County jail.
Williams originally told officers he had been beaten and robbed Nov. 20 at Healthy Thyme, which is at the same address as Williams’ home. . . .
Officers later found inconsistencies in Williams’ story. Paris Police Sgt. Ricky Watson said Williams failed to bring up certain facts known to investigators on three different occasions.
“He was given three opportunities to disclose that information, and he chose not to,” Watson said.
That leaves investigators trying to determine how much of Williams’ story might have been true.
“We’ve not been able to verify or dispel any of the statements made about the actual robbery or fire,” Watson said. “We’re looking into Mister Williams, and we’re looking into whether it did or did not happen.”

The apparent fakery by Williams probably won’t be reported in bold headlines by some outlets that reported the story originally.

These people are obviously mixed up, or, are they just liars?  It’s hard to tell; but one thing is certain, when reality doesn’t fit their victimhood narrative, reality is wrong, and must be altered!  Just consider it reality, with some lies and fakery thrown into the mix.

New Hampshire Democrats Wage War on a Woman: Create Fake Marilinda Garcia Facebook Page, with Bonus Hitler Quotes

Share

As we all know, democrats, or progressives, or socialists, are so very, very, tolerant. Their tolerance knows no depths, until, that is, someone disagrees with their agenda. Then, for some strange unknown reason, hypocrisy, they become the most intolerant creatures of ever walked the earth. The latest example of this comes from New Hampshire, where Republican Marilinda Garcia is considering a run for Congress.

Ms. Garcia is very attractive and is reportedly equally conservative, and as we covered before, local Democrats had to rush out to attack her. Because, as we all know, is the evil Republicans that are waging a war on women, right? For their latest active tolerance, Democrats decided to help Marilinda Garcia by creating a Facebook page for. They were so incredibly thoughtful, but they decided to attribute quotes from Hitler to her. America’s Watchtower as more…

New Hampshire Democrats are scared to death of Marilinda Garcia; so afraid that they viciously attacked her on Twitter almost immediately after she announced she would seek the Republican nomination to face off against ultra-moonbat Ann Kuster.

But apparently the New Hampshire Democrats did not think that attack went far enough so they created a fake Marilinda Garcia Facebook page complete with Adolf Hitler quotes which they attributed to Marilinda Garcia. This is beyond despicable, they have reached a new low–if that is possible.

 …

Here is what her spokesman had to say:

Brad Stevens, a campaign spokesman for Garcia, called the “crude fake social media account” a disappointment in the candidate’s early campaign.

“Marilinda hasn’t been an announced candidate for Congress a full two weeks and she has already been the subject of multiple personal attacks,” he said in an email. “But Marilinda knows the struggles facing New Hampshire families of losing health insurance due to ObamaCare regulations, sluggish job growth and burdensome debt are the real issues that need to be front-and-center in this campaign and not dirty political attacks.”

in the end, this is yet another example of how the Democrats operate. Their candidate is on record as supporting Obama care, which is cause people to lose hours at their jobs, lose their healthcare plans, forces them to purchase more expensive plans to give them less, it is cost people their jobs. They cannot possibly debate Marilinda Garcia on the facts, so they have to smear her to keep their low information voters on the plantation.

Just remember, it’s the Republicans that hate women, right?

Fake an Atrocity Alert: Black Pastor Set Fires, Painted Racial Graffitti to Fake a Hate Crime

Share

Once again, someone follows the great liberal tradition of “faking an atrocity.”  Consider it playing the (insert aggrieved group of your choice here) card, but with creative license.   Sometimes, when one is claiming to be a victim, they have a hard time convincing others, especially if their narrative is completely divorced from reality.  So, in that event, if they cannot point to real victimization, they will invent some themselves.  That is what a pastor did, and it didn’t end well for him…

Olander D. Cuthrell, 41, a minister of music at Good Shepherd Baptist Church, admitted to torching his own porch and writing “n*gger” on the house.
The Times Dispatch reported:

A black Baptist minister from Chesterfield County was sentenced Thursday to serve two years in prison for setting his front porch ablaze in a phony hate crime attack that included racist graffiti he painted to deceive police.

Olander D. Cuthrell, 41, a minister of music at Gospel Shepherd Baptist Church, told the judge he was both ashamed and embarrassed for pouring a mixture of oil and gasoline across part of his family’s front porch and igniting it March 15 after becoming overwhelmed by financial problems.

Minutes before, he spray-painted the N-word on two sides of his rental house in the 7800 block of Little Ridge Court to divert attention from himself and bolster his claim of being the target of a racially motivated attack.

He further perpetuated the fraud by igniting a 16-ounce bottle filled with oil and gas inside an inoperable, family-owned 1992 BMW parked outside the house.
After setting the two fires, he went back inside the house, undressed and climbed into bed, “waiting for the house to burn down,” Chesterfield prosecutor Laura Khawaja told the court in arguing for a stiff punishment.

His oldest son discovered the porch fire after the family dog woke him, and was able to extinguish the flames with water before it spread to the house occupied by Cuthrell, his wife and three of his sons. The car fire burned out on its own.

The incident prompted Chesterfield police and the FBI to investigate the matter as a possible hate crime, and Cuthrell fueled that notion by telling several news outlets he was the victim of a racially motivated attack.

This is a very common occurrence, as we have covered here at the CH 2.0

Story Update: Police Share How They Caught Meghan Lanker-Simons Faking a Rape Threat

Share

If you recall, I covered that Meghan Lanker-Simons, campus lefty and feminazi, was alleged to have faked her own hoax.  She allegedly crafted a Facebook post threatening to rape herself- clearly a sign of the self loathing that permeates most liberals.  

meg lanker simmonsmeg lanker simmons2

Note how she allowed the drama to build, and then came in made the longest, and golly-gee, the bravest post of them all?  Almost as if she knew it was coming, and was set up to draw attention to herself.  In fact, this entire affair can be spelled out out in five words…

Please pay attention to me?

Of course, when she was caught and accused, there were many indignant claims of innocence.  Then, we found out the “Meg” had an interesting history, including being charged with a gun crime…

The Other McCain has more

When last we checked in on Think Progress award-winning blogger Meg Lanker-Simons, the progressive feminist was charged with making a fake Facebook threat to “hate-f*ck” herself. Now it turns out that “Meg Lanker-Simons” is the alias of a dangerously crazy criminal formerly known as Meghan Michelena, who in 2006 pleaded guilty to aggravated assault after getting fired from a Wyoming radio station:

According to court records, she was charged in November 2005 in District Court with aggravated assault.
Lanker-Simons, then Meghan Michelena, pleaded guilty to the charge in May 2006 as part of a plea agreement, records indicate. . . .
Lanker-Simons walked into an Albany County radio station she’d been fired from with a Glock 22 .40 caliber handgun.
She confronted a man who had decided to terminate her, the affidavit reports. The man also told her, the court documents state, that she would not be rehired.
Lanker-Simons “pulled a semi-automatic pistol from her purse, waved the firearm around and pointed (the) firearm at (the man),” according to the affidavit.
The man, according to the affidavit, said he was “in fear for his life.” . . .
She was sentenced to six years of probation in July 2006.
The probation sentence was subject to numerous stipulations, including . . . undergoing counseling . . .
Court documents state she violated probation by being “unsuccessfully discharged” from a residential treatment program.
In April 2007, she was again sentenced to probation with the stipulation she complete a treatment program in Utah.

So, today, we find the in the arrest affadavit, the Police tracked the fake rape threat right back to her own computer…

The Daily Caller’s Eric Owns share a local publication’s details about the investigation:

The Laramie Boomerang has now published details from a court-filed affidavit describing how police believe the strident leftist perpetrated her failed hoax.

The kerfuffle began in April when an unsigned posting was made to a Facebook page called UW Crushes. “I want to hatefuck Meg Lanker-Simons so hard,” the post read. “That chick runs her liberal mouth all the time.”

The posting brought national attention to the Cowboy State’s flagship college. There was a feminist rally. Initially, the administration stood firmly behind Lanker-Simons. A school official denounced “rape culture.”

Police investigated the incident, quickly determining that Lanker-Simons posted the message on her computer while it was in her possession. It was her alleged obstruction of the investigation that led to a misdemeanor change or interfering with a peace officer.

According to the affidavit, a search warrant served on a company called SurveyMonkey.com was essential.

The post went through SurveyMonkey’s website, so the online questionnaire outfit was able to provide a slew of useful information including IP addresses and login information for the administrators of UW Crushes. The website also provided the IP address of the computer which generated the post.

University police then asked an information technology staffer at the school to “research the IP address of the original sender of the message” and “see if he could track that to one specific computer or individual,” explains the Boomerang.

The employee soon struck gold. He told police the IP address belonged to a computer called “ElComputerdeMeg.”

“The user logged into the computer at the time was meghanm, or Meghan Michelena, also known as Meghan Lanker-Simons,” the affidavit testifies.

The only mystery is whether or not the denials will continue, or if silence will be the response.  Either way, it’ll take more than a name change for Meghan Lanker-Simons to have much of any credibility.

Meg Lanker-Simons Really Meghan Michelena, Guilty of Gun-Related Crime

Share

Wow, when it rains, it pours.  And if by pouring, you really mean batsh*t insane moonbattery!  If you recall, both Jim and I covered the sad tale of Meg Lanker-Simons, a typical liberal-feminazi-commie that gained notoriety by engaging in the fine liberal tradition of staging her own atrocity.  She posted a rape threat against herself (which is hard enough to believe if you look at her), and then bravely defended herself against the marauding, evil conservative.  If by marauding, evil Conservative you really mean Meg Lanker-Simons.  For, you see, old Meg was caught red-handed by the campus police, and cited.

But, that isn’t the end of the story.  It gets even more interesting.  As it turns out, Meg Lanker-Simons is apparemtly really Meghan Michelena.  And, Meghan Michelena, has a claim to fame-she was fired from a radio station, and responded by showing up and pointing a gun at people! The Other McCain has more

There is more at The Other McCain, so get over there and check it out.

So, not only did she commit a crime, which got her involved in the criminal justice system, she also had a rather rocky course through the mandated treatment that she was to receive.

I wonder what the reaction will be from the supporters of Meg Lanker-Simoms Meghan Michelena will be?  Or will this be someone else’s fault, just like always?

Liberal Loons: Were They Born That Stupid or Did They Have To Work At It?

Share

Most of us on the right of the political spectrum recognize that not all liberals are loons. Most of us are capable of admitting that there are some loons on the right, as well. But, to this humble observer of the asylum. it does seem that the liberals have a disproportionate share of the loons.

I came across this liberal loon story at American Thinker. The protagonist in this story is a young woman by the name of Meg Lanker-Simons. She is a student at the University of Wyoming. She is a liberal activist and she writes a popular blog where she expresses her liberal views. That, by itself. does not qualify her for being exceptionally stupid. The rest of the story, however, does qualify her as being exceptionally stupid. Miss Lanker-Simons has demonstrated a level of stupidity that she could not possibly have come by naturally. She has acquired a level of stupidity that she could only have achieved with great dedication and  hard work on her part. Let’s see if you agree.

Someone on the university campus operates what is referred to as “ a college “crush” Facebook page.” A vile message was posted on this page, which was directed at Miss. Lanker-Simons. Language Alert:

“I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it,” it read.  ”I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and she’s gonna be a good Republican bitch,” the post reads, according to a screenshot.

Our young liberal activist wasted no time posting the comment on her own blog and commented calling it :

disgusting, misogynistic, and apparently something the admins of this page think is a perfectly acceptable sentiment.

A surprisingly civilized response, don’t you think? But, the U of W students were rightly outraged. I would hope that most conservatives would be equally outraged by such vile and childish prank. The campus police were not amused. They began investigation. I assume they wanted to find  the perpetrator and charge the person with a “hate” crime. The police were successful in finding the “hater”:

The University of Wyoming Police Department issued a citation to Lanker-Simons for “interference” for “false statements she made to the UW Police Department,” according to a UW statement referred to by Laramie Boomerang Online.

“Subject admitted to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then lied about not doing it,” according to the citation.

The University of Wyoming also confirmed a statement that the police had “”obtained substantial evidence verifying that the offending Facebook post came from Lanker-Simons’ computer, while the computer was in her possession.”

Oops! My guess is that had the vile message been sent by someone from the right side of the political spectrum, they would have been smart enough not to use their own computer. Miss Lanker-Simons was not that smart.

What’s the chance that she will be charged with a “hate” crime? You probably shouldn’t hold your breath.

Sane people might think that the fans of Miss Lanker-Simons’ blog would have dropped her like a hot potato. Sane people would be wrong. Her fans have set-up a Facebook page to defend her actions, which they believe were justified:

“Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent we believe what she did was justified and deserves not to be held accountable for her accusations we stand behind you sister,”

I rest my case. The left does have a disproportionate number of loons.

Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

Liberal Blogger, Meg Lanker-Simons Accused of Embracing Leftist Tradition: Stages own Rape Threats

Share

Liberals have a long an historic traduiti0n…of lies and deceit.  We’ve covered quite a bit of that here, especially when they stage their own “atrocities.”  That fine tradition was recently continued by one Meg Lanker-Simons, a liberal blogger, and student at the University of Wyoming.  Viral  Read has more on the story…

A student at the University of Wyoming who claimed she was targeted for a Facebook rape threat because she “runs her liberal mouth all the time” faked the threat against herself, police say. Meg Lanker-Simons, 26, has been charged with interference with a police investigation by giving false statement.

The phony threat, posted on a Facebook page called “UW Crushes” was cited as “an example of rape culture” by Lanker-Simons in an April 24 item on her Tumblr blog, where she urged readers to tell the administrators of the page that “this kind of misogyny is not okay.”

However, UW police said, they interviewed Lanker-Simons and searched her computer, and ”obtained substantial evidence verifying that the offending Facebook post came from Lanker-Simons’ computer.” Lanker-Simons “admitted to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then lied about not doing it,” according to the citation for a misdemeanor, which can be punished by up to a year in jail.

So, yet another liberal fakes their own threat/attack/injury.  A PDF of the citation can be found here.

Here is the screencap of the the actual “threat.”

Please pay attention to me?

And, of course, Think Regress, who has a history of fakery themselves, has honored Meg Lanker-Simons in the past as well (again from Viral Read).

Lanker-Simons’s “Cognitive Dissonance” site was recognized for an award last year by the Center for American Progress’s Think Progress site. She also hosts a weekly talk-radio program on Laramie’s KOCA-FM.

Birds of a feather…

To have these kinds of disconnects from reality takes some truly twisted logic.  For example, she protested in an attempt to prevent Dick Cheny from speaking on campus, and the very next year, she filed suit to have Bill Ayers, who belonged to leadership of an organization that built bombs and BLEW PEOPLE UP, speak on campus.  the legal underpinnings of the suit? 

UPDATE:  Here’s the stuff about her and Ayers working together:

University of Wyoming student Meg Lanker and University of Illinois-Chicago Professor Dr. William Ayers filed suit against UW and UW President Tom Buchanan in federal court in Cheyenne Thursday afternoon seeking an immediate injunction against the university for the “current and imminent violations of plaintiff’s (Lanker and Ayers) rights guaranteed under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.”

University of Wyoming Communications Director Jessica Lowell had no comment.

Filed by attorney David Lane, the complaint alleges that UW “acting under color of state law” has barred Ayers from speaking on campus and further declared that such actions are prior restraint against the rights of Ayers and Lanker to freedom of speech, freedom of assembly and freedom of association.

Note that Ayers, and to repeat, a guy who was in the leadership of an organization that BLEW PEOPLE UP, has rights. Dick Cheny?  Not so much.  Why?  Because in the the Marxist future that Meg Lanker-Simmons and Bill Ayers want for us, only THEY have rights. You have rights, but only in as much as you completely agree with them.  You don’t agree, well, we know what happens to you…

That’s their brave new world, and they’ll keep working hard to implement it, even if they have to fake atrocities to do it.

Another Hate Crime Hoax? Is Sharmeka Moffitt the Latest to Fake a Hate Crime?

Share

If you recall my commentary on the Occupy Movement, I made the point that leftists love to set up “atrocities” so they can claim to be victims.  For example, they will antagonize and provoke others into either attacking, or defending themselves.  Then, they try and tell the world that they are the victims.  However, when they cannot set one up, they aren’t above faking one completely.  In that vein, enter one Sharmeka Moffitt, who claimed she was attacked, and set on fire.  Then, “KKK” was carved into her car.  However, after garnering a great deal of sympathy from the left, she was exposed as a fraud.  Michelle Malkin has more...

Via The Franklin Sun:

Two days after multiple law enforcement agencies began an investigation into the attack and burning of a Winnsboro woman at Civitan Park, authorities now believe the wounds were self-inflicted.

According to Winnsboro Police Chief Lester Thomas, evidenced gathered at the scene of the incident shows 20-year-old Sharmeka Moffitt’s initial claims that she was attacked and set on fire turned out to be false claims made up by Moffitt. “This is a case in which the investigators had to pursue the facts that were presented,” Thomas said. “It’s been a very disturbing case for everyone involved.”

On Sunday, officers responded to a 911 call around 8 p.m. near the walking trail at Civitan Park to find Moffitt with burns covering her body. It was less than a minute from the time the call from Moffitt came into the 911 center that officers from the Winnsboro Police Department and the Franklin Parish Sheriff’s Office were on the scene at the park located on Hwy. 15.

Moffitt could not identify the race of her attackers, but said three men wearing “T-shirt hoodies” doused her in a flammable liquid and set her on fire at the park. The responding officers found no suspects or vehicles at the park where the attack allegedly occurred….State Police arrived by helicopter with its crime lab team to gather evidence shortly after Moffitt was taken for medical assistance. Law enforcement officials gathered evidence from the scene all night, finishing its scaling of the crime scene by Monday morning.

After analyzing the evidence at the State Police Crime Lab, it was discovered Moffitt’s fingerprints were on the cigarette lighter and the lighter fluid recovered near the wooded area around the crime scene.

“There is more physical evidence along those lines that back this up,” Thomas said.

Um, once again, another hate crime hoax.  I had seen this story a few days ago, and put it on the back burner, as time was needed to see if the actual facts jived with the story.  However, the Huffington Post had no problem running the story, without any actual evidence at all…

A Louisiana woman was the victim of a horrific attack during which she was reportedly set on fire and had her car defiled with the letters “KKK,” police reported Monday.

Sharmeka Moffitt, a 20-year-old African-American woman, made an emergency call to police on Sunday night claiming three men wearing white hoods or hats attacked her, doused her with flammable liquid and set her on fire at a park in Winnsboro, La., CBS News reports. Moffitt, who said she was unable to identify the race of her attackers, was able to extinguish the fire with a water spigot before police arrived.

Officers found the letters “KKK,” an apparent reference to the Ku Klux Klan, written on the hood of her car, according to CBS News. “KKK” was smeared on her hood in a paste-like substance.

Franklin Parish Sheriff Kevin Cobb confirmed that “KKK” was written on the hood of Moffitt’s car with a racial slur underneath, WMBF News reports.

To their credit, the Huffpo did update the story to reflect that it was a hoax.  However, they ran with it as if it were true, only to be exposed as a hoax.  And this little blogger is responsible enough to wait to see where the actual facts led?

As for our hoax artist, considering the fact that she set herself on fire, it might be safe to guess that she is suffering from some sort of mental illness.  But the comparison to the left is still valid.  When attention needs to be drawn to their causes, nothing is off the table, including faking a hate crime.

How to NOT Stage a Bigfoot Sighting

Share

On an aside from from our normal political banter, there are ways to not stage a Bigfoot sighting.  This is one of them…

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — A man dressed in a military-style “ghillie” suit and apparently trying to provoke reports of a Bigfoot sighting in northwest Montana was struck by two cars and killed, authorities said.

The man was standing in the right-hand lane of U.S. Highway 93 south of Kalispell on Sunday night when he was hit by the first car, according to the Montana Highway Patrol. A second car hit the man as he lay in the roadway, authorities said.

Flathead County officials identified the man as Randy Lee Tenley, 44, of Kalispell. Trooper Jim Schneider said motives were ascertained during interviews with friends, and alcohol may have been a factor but investigators were awaiting tests.

“He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting,” Schneider told the Daily Inter Lake  on Monday. “You can’t make it up. I haven’t seen or heard of anything like this before. Obviously, his suit made it difficult for people to see him.”

Um,  it might be a fun idea to trick people into thinking that they’re seeing bigfoot.  However, it should probably be done far away from a busy road.

Lesbian Allegedly Stages own Hate Crime

Share

In the great leftist tradition of staging an atrocity to gain public support, Charlie Rogers, a former women’s basketball standout at the University of Nebraska, allegedly staged a hate crime to gain support for gays.  KMOX has more…

Four days before Charlie Rogers crawled naked and bleeding from her Lincoln home, screaming for help, she outlined in a Facebook posting what investigators believe was her motive for faking the July 22 attack, Police Chief Jim Peschong said at a news conference.

“So maybe I am too idealistic, but I believe way deep inside me that we can make things better for everyone. I will be a catalyst. I will do what it takes. I will. Watch me,” read the July 18 posting, according to police.

Furthermore, genetic testing on evidence gathered at the crime scene undermines Rogers’ account of what happened, Peschong said.

Charlie Rogers, 33, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to making a false police report and was released on her own recognizance. She didn’t respond to a message seeking comment left Tuesday at a number listed as hers, but her lawyer, Brett McArthur, said she maintains the attack happened and plans to vigorously defend herself.

We’ve seen this before.  We saw it recently with a fake attack on a gay male.  Then, we saw it with the occupods, who used the elderly and used children as human shields.  It’s a time tested tradition.  If they can’t make a point with facts, they’ll do it with staged atrocities.

We’ll have to see how this comes out.  I doubt it’ll get much more coverage if it turns out that she is guilty, but you never know.
