From Daily Caller:
The year 2015 saw an absolutely bumper crop of fake hate crimes, fictional racist events, bogus claims of anti-gay animus and comically sad misunderstandings about innocent symbols.
It’s hard to know where to start.
Well, start anywhere really, but here’s one:
2. A Columbia University student pitched a fit and cried racism because she couldn’t get into a Yale frat party. A Halloween party thrown by the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chapter at Yale University caused a huge fracas after a Columbia student visiting campus claimed she was denied entry because it was “white girls only.” The Columbia student, Sofia Petros-Gouin, said an SAE member repeatedly declared “White girls only” and only permitted white women — specifically blonde white women — to enter. “I was shocked,” Petros-Gouin told gullible Washington Post reporter Susan Svrluga. “I was disgusted.” Later, the fraternity’s president said another Yale student hocked a loogie on him. Also, Yale students insulted black SAE members by calling them “Uncle Toms.” Yale officials opened an official investigation. They conducted scores of interviews. About a month later, school officials concluded that exactly no racism had actually occurred at the frat’s Halloween party. “Before the party became crowded, all students — including men and women of color — were admitted on a first-come, first-served basis,” a Yale dean wrote. Later, when the party was hopping and people started queueing outside to get in, frat members began turning people away with “harsh language” — but no racism. More.
Reality check: It actually doesn’t matter what happened. In a world where evidence does not matter, where falsifiability is under siege even in science, facts are superfluous to the need to act out a drama to justify one’s place in the growing ecology of victimhood. In the new economy, many superfluous people will need to stake a claim to be either lifetime victimcrats or lifetime victims. Much trouble could be spared by awarding them their status early, perhaps conflating the two groups, as they may prove difficult to sort. Incidentally, it’s not exclusive; almost anyone other than a dead white male can play.
