    If America Is So Racist, Why Are There So Many Race Hoaxes?

    Truth!! The left has to gin up fake outrage because evidence of real racism is so rare today.

    The take-a-way is at the very end of the article:
    If there were a lot of racism, there would be no need for hoaxes. No Jew in Germany in the 1930s made up an anti-Semitic hoax. No Jewish shop owner ever made up a charge that a Nazi hurled a rock through his store window. The reason? None was needed. Nazi hatred against Jews was real. It didn't have to be faked. To convince people that America is racist, you have to fake it.

    Nice Dennis Prager column, with a dozen handy examples. And you and I could list a dozen more. We've been saying this for some time.

    Remember Tom Servo's thread, I'm calling it now.... about the Jussie Smollett hoax?

    • "If these governors won't help, I will use my powers as president and get them out of the way." — Joe Biden, explaining fascism.
    • "Put aside all of these issues of concern about liberties and personal liberties and realize we have a common enemy and that common enemy is the virus." — Dr. Anthony Fauci, misidentifying the common enemy.
    • "Thieves only carry weapons for self-protection and to provide the householder an incentive to cooperate." — Texas State House Rep. Terry Meza, proposing to bar "castle defense" protection for victims of home invasions.
    • "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there." — Elizabeth Warren, explaining socialism.
    • “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” — Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.
    • "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." — CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    You can't make this stuff up.

    Oh, wait. . . .

    Another hate crime hoax: Oregon commission candidate admits he wrote ‘racist’ letter to himself
    An Oregon man gunning for a seat at the political table has joined the ranks of now notorious hate crime ‘hoaxers’ Jussie Smollett and Bubba Wallace.

    A Hispanic candidate for an Oregon county commission seat has admitted he faked a ‘racist’ letter to himself, though he now says he never meant to “mislead” anyone.


    OK, ok. Had to pause.

    Jonathan Lopez, who ran an unsuccessful primary campaign for a seat on the Umatilla County commission in May, had initially claimed that a racially-tinged letter had been left in his mailbox.

    But in an email to the press on Monday, Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston said Lopez admitted to law enforcement that he wrote the letter.

    The chief added that the case would be turned over to the district attorney’s office to decide whether to prosecute Lopez for filing a false police report, which is a Class A misdemeanor in the state.

    “From the onset, this alleged incident has been thoroughly investigated,” Edmiston wrote in an email to the Lagrand Observer. “Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media. The end result is a verbal and written admission by Mr. Lopez that the letter was fabricated.”
    As seen in the photo, the letter said that Lopez and other “Mexicans” were “not welcome here.”

    “America is for the God-fearing, pro-gun, pro-life humans who refuse to be controlled by the government,” the letter said.

    After being contacted by the East Oregonian newspaper, Lopez said that the incident was simply a big misunderstanding, and that he only wanted to talk to Edmonton about alleged racism in Umatilla County. He claimed that he only sought to use the letter as an example of the kind of racism some people experience but don’t talk about in public very often.

    “I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out,” Lopez said, adding he “never meant to mislead” anyone.
    That's sort of what Tawana Brawley said. She didn't mean for it to get out of hand.

    Meanwhile, there's another misunderstanding:
    Lopez, who is also a member of the city of Hermiston’s Hispanic Advisory Committee, placed fourth in the May primary.

    The police chief said Hermiston officers had learned that Lopez never served in the U.S. Coast Guard as he claimed in election materials, which — if true — is a violation of the Stolen Valor Act of 2013.

    So far, the Observer reported, Lopez, 29, has not provided authorities with any proof of his claimed service.

    Stolen valor. What scum.

    It seems all these things are hoaxes. Except the white people getting randomly punched and the clips of that sort thing being uploaded for the general amusement of savages. I know I wake up every morning thinking, "Gosh, what old lady/young girl can I punch to make my friends laugh?".
    "Alexa, slaughter the fatted calf."

    Stolen Valor Act???? OK, it's smarmy to lie about your service (or lack thereof), but I'm not convinced this legislation is any more valid than its predecessor, which was ruled a free-speech violation. If they want to make it an automatic disqualification for public employment or political office, I'll buy that. A criminal offense? Not so much.

    If it weren't for AOC's tales of trauma from Behind the Bathroom Door, this Minnesota bozo would win the Smollett Award for the week:

    U. Minnesota student claims racial profiling, fear of being shot; recorded footage shreds narrative

    Thank God for the video.

    Somewhere I read that about 99% of such reported incidents are fraudulent, like this one. I don't remember the source, and I'm skeptical. It sounds like a Steven Wright statistic. ("47% of statistics are made up on the spot.")

    But even if only 4 out of 5 are hoaxes, clearly the perps perceive an advantage in making the claim that outweighs the mockery they risk.

    And clearly some Democratic House Representatives feel the same. (Tlaib: “What happened on January 6th, all I could do is thank Allah I wasn’t there”)

    I think there is plenty of racism in this country. The Koreans think they are genetically superior to the Chinese, the Chinese say the Japanese are the descendants of Chinese sailors and indigenous apes. The Japanese have demonstrated their contempt for Chinese, Koreans, Pinoy, etc... and none of them want anything to do with sub-saharan black Africans.

    The most racist page on Facebook is Black news site NEWSONE.

    The legitimate goal is to eliminate the ACT of discrimination not the THOUGHT of racism.
    The year's at the spring
    And day's at the morn;
    Morning's at seven;
    The hill-side's dew-pearled;
    The lark's on the wing;
    The snail's on the thorn:
    God's in his heaven—
    All's right with the world!

    And they will go to extremes to do it. One lesbian woman beat the shit out of herself outside a tavern, then claimed she was set upon by gay haters.

    When she found out they had videos....

    I don't think this hoax has fully come out in the open yet, but it's looking like the FBI completely ginned up the so-called kidnapping plot against Gov. Whitmer to create a white supremacist, domestic terrorist enemy for political purposes.

    The group accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Gov. Whitmer was riddled with FBI informants who took leading roles, according to BuzzFeed
    The anti-government extremist group accused of conspiring to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer had been infiltrated by at least a dozen FBI informants — some of whom took leading roles in the scheme, BuzzFeed News reported.

    At least 12 confidential FBI informants assisted the investigation into the extremist group accused of conspiring to kidnap the Democratic governor, according to the news outlet's report.

    An examination of the case by BuzzFeed revealed that "some of those informants, acting under the direction of the FBI, played a far larger role than has previously been reported."

    For example, an Iraq war veteran informant "became so deeply enmeshed in a Michigan militant group" that he rose to second-in-command of the group, BuzzFeed reported.

    The war vet told members of the group to convene with other potential suspects and even paid for members' transportation to meetings, according to the news outlet.

    Another man who advised the militia group on where to place explosives and offered to get as many as needed was also an informant, BuzzFeed reported.

    In total, 14 men were charged last year in the alleged domestic terrorism plot to kidnap Whitmer. The defendants have all pleaded not guilty to the charges.
    Men accused in plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Whitmer claim FBI set them up
    The men accused of plotting to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer last September claim they were set up by the FBI because of their conservative political views.

    There were at least 12 FBI informants involved in the investigation to thwart the alleged scheme by a militia group known as the “Wolverine Watchmen” — but the agents actually took an active part in it right from its inception, according to court filings, evidence and dozens of interviews reviewed by BuzzFeed News — and now some members of the group are accusing the feds of entrapment.

    One informant from Wisconsin allegedly helped organize meetings where the first inklings of the plot surfaced, even paying for hotel rooms and food to entice people to attend, Buzzfeed News reported.

    Another undercover agent allegedly advised the group on how to blow up a bridge to aid their getaway — and promised to supply them with explosives. . . .
    Maybe the FBI just got around to watching that old movie Wag the Dog.
