College Student Pleads Guilty To Slashing Her Own Face, Making Up Post-Election ‘Hate Crime’

A 21-year-old Michigan woman pleaded guilty Monday to fabricating a “hate crime” in which an unknown white male approached her and slashed her face with a safety-pin, local news outlets are reporting.

University of Michigan student Halley Bass admitted she scratched her own face with a pin after becoming frightened by a classroom discussion in her women’s literature class.

“I had been in a discussion in my women’s lit weirdly and there were a few people in my class that sort of said some things that scared me,” Bass said. She claims she was “suffering from depression at the time.”

Bass originally “claimed her attack was part of the surge in hate crimes following the election of Donald Trump a week earlier,” MLive.com reports. She told police after the fake attack that she believed she was targeted because of a safety-pin she was wearing.

    if she does not face the consequences ,and they should be harsh, this will become an accepted believed example of right wing hate and used to justify fascist reactionary violence

    Self mutilating feminists? They why do they hate real feminists like Ayaan Hirsi Ali who had that happen TO them? One would think they’d embrace mutilation. I call for student health programs for feminists so they can all undergo FGM.

    • That’s very multicultural of you.

      • Hard Little Machine

        Slashing yourself and claiming you were attacked by Trump is pretty much the Casey Anthony of feminism. These people are bonkers.

          She is clearly insane. She will likely need care all her life. And you Michigan taxpayers will pay for it. Not that I’m gloating. We have plenty of these wackos in Canerduh that I’m paying for.

    A safety pin? WTF? She says she got attacked with a safety pin and the cops took her seriously?

      I suspect that the original injury (a scratch rather than a slash, really) was accidental, and that she was constrained in her hoax by the facts on the ground (or the skin). When you’ve accidentally scratched yourself with one of those pins worn to show you’re “woke” to white privilege, it’s hard to convince even fellow SJW’s that you were attacked with, say, a machete.

    According to the Progressives, Trump is still responsible, because had Hillary been elected instead of Trump, she would not have been driven to self-harm.

  • Watchman

    Doesn’t she know that they have diapers now that use adhesive tabs? She might be able to forgo her use of safety pins altogether.

    Many university students are are in a perpetual state of ‘teenager’. She seems to have been preserved from a much earlier stage of development.

    This ‘woman’ would have no qualms about sending an innocent male to prison for a very long time. It is high time that those that encourage women to engage in machiavellian/malicious/sociopathic behaviour be held accountable and imprisoned for the same period of time had a wrongful conviction occured.
