Fake Hate Crimes Pose Real Threat

American society equates victimhood with power, to the point where people are committing crimes against themselves.

For the first time in a century, Kansas State University closed its doors during the school year for something other than bad weather. All classes from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. were canceled on November 14 for a K-State Unity Walk and a KSUnite rally. Students, faculty and staff left their classrooms, dorms and offices to rally against racism. The events were organized after a Jewish student’s sukkah (a temporary hut used during the festival of Sukkot) was knocked over and a black student’s car was defaced with racist graffiti.

Wild Blue Yonder

A general’s overwrought response to a race hoax at the Air Force Academy was off-base.

American politics has been largely free of military influence since George Washington defused an incipient army mutiny at Newburgh, New York, in 1783. There have been relapses, including George McClellan’s presidential maneuverings before the 1864 election, and the insubordination of the politically ambitious Douglas MacArthur in 1951. But military deference to America’s elected civilian leadership has been so consistent for so long that even faint political activism by high-ranking officers stands out. Recently, a three-star air force general nudged up to, if not across, that thin line—taking to YouTube to accuse the institution, its cadets, and its staff of racism.

Latest hate crime stats show African-Americans more likely than whites to commit hate crimes

Data that contradict the approved narrative of the left rarely garner headlines.  Minorities must always be victims of the heartless white majority, you see.  So our helpful government bureaucrats bury data that contradict that approved story and forces those interested in the truth to bring out their calculators and crunch the numbers a little.

Sweden lists milk as a hate symbol

In a new report on “the white hatred” in Sweden, by the Total Defense Research Institute (Foi) commissioned by the government to map comments written on sites on the internet, milk is listed as a hate symbol and a symbol of “white power,” along with the okay-symbol much used by Donald Trump.

WaPo Thinks Fake Hate Crimes Might Energize ‘Right-Wing Commentators’

The Washington Post seems to think the real problem with fake hate crimes is that conservative media scrutinizes them too much, when in reality many hate crimes deserve such scrutiny because they are fabricated.

In a WaPo article titled “A black student wrote those racist messages that shook the Air Force Academy, school says“, reporter Samantha Schmidt covered the recent revelations that racist messages written at the Air Force Academy in Colorado were put there by a black cadet.

Schmidt then wrote, “These reports have also energized many right-wing commentators and President Trump supporters, who argue that reports about hate speech and racist graffiti are often fake accounts disseminated by liberal media.”

London Police Visit Mosques to Encourage ‘Hate Crime’ Reporting

Transport for London (TfL) and London’s police are teaming up to encourage people to report “perceived” so-called “hate crimes”, specifically targeting Muslims by going into mosques.

The police will be working with the True Vision website, used by anti-Brexit campaigners to claim the vote to leave the European Union (EU) caused “hate crimes” and Tell MAMA, a discredited “anti-Islamophobia” group that lost government funding in 2013 after exaggerating statistics to further their cause.

Why Trump Shouldn’t Have Signed the Resolution Condemning ‘Hate Groups’

On Thursday, President Trump signed a congressional resolution about the events that took place in Charlottesville, VA, in August:

Resolution … expressing support for the Charlottesville community, rejecting White nationalists, White supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, and other hate groups, and urging the President and the President’s Cabinet to use all available resources to address the threats posed by those groups.

Great idea, right?

Jews urge attorney general to ‘stand up to hate’

A new petition calls on Ontario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi to respond to the Jewish community’s complaints and concerns about hate crime and hate speech.

The petition, launched Friday by the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies (FSWC), says no charges were laid in relation to Al Quds Day held outside Queen’s Park on June 24 where speakers expressed anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial, as well as spoke in favour of the annihilation of the Jewish people and Israel.

Pssstt… Someone is not the ascendant voting block
