Another ‘Racial Attack’ Ruled a Hoax in College Town

The laid back and trendy college town of Iowa City was plunged into turmoil a little over two weeks ago, after a black University of Iowa freshman claimed that three white men had viciously attacked him in the downtown and called him a racial slur.  A media firestorm ensued, with the first report airing on a Chicagonews station.  Iowa City police quickly declared they were investigating a possible hate crime and even consulted with the FBI.  City and university officials were on the defensive.  Social justice warriors held protests.

The hate crime, however, turned out to be a hoax – just as more than a few observers had suspected all along.

    There’s just never enough real hate to go around.

    • We need a Royal Commission.

        That will certainly eat up a lot of money and a huge amount of time – years I mean, but yes indeed.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Royal Commissions tend to add a percentage interest to that hate, so it grows exponentially as Royal Commission members arse the dog for those long years. Bottom line, it’s all about getting fucked Canadian-style.

    Its really apparent that any and all suggestions or reports of hate crime must be considered absolute bull shit of the highest order. More specifically any suggestion of an attack on a muzzy is an effing lie.

    The media is all over “hate crimes” then goes silent when they’re revealed to be hoaxes.

    I keep saying that as long as there are no consequences/no price to pay for these, they will continue. We are actually rewarding, once again, bad behaviour here and are therefore encouraging it.

  • Hoax = joke. I don’t consider it a “joke” when people try to extort money by this sort of thing, ruin somebody’s reputation, get them fired, etc. It’s at least fraud and defamation — the former criminal, the latter actionable in civil court.

    Obama Son lies, media cries. When can we hunt these liberals for sport?
