The Liberal who cried Wolf

In a world that has become so polarized by the “fake news” mantra against most mainstream media outlets, it’s pretty bad when people have to create hate crimes, because there simply aren’t enough real hate crimes to justify all the activism against such ghost causes.

Police say the “Empire” actor has turned himself in to face a charge of making a false police report when he said he was attacked in downtown Chicago by two men who hurled racist and anti-gay slurs and looped a rope around his neck. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says Smollett turned himself in early Thursday, Feb. 21 and was arrested. The charge could bring up to three years in prison for the actor, who’s black and gay Empire Cast Member Attack, Chicago, USA – 21 Feb 2019

As disturbing a reality as it is, a “Hoax Crime” is not new, nor of recent vintage. This being said, the absolute plethora of them being launched in our current political climate, is beyond pandemic.

1999 – James Green of Baytown, TX, staged a fake hate crime burglary of his home, wrote anti-Black slurs on his interior walls; later convicted of insurance fraud for burning down his own home.

2004 – Claremont McKenna College Professor Kerri Dunn; spray paints racial and anti-Semitic slurs on her own car, in a hoax crime.

2005 – Rondell Taylor; Elementary School teacher sends self and two other teachers, Thanksgiving Cards, with threats and racist attacks.

2006 – Internationally known Duke (University) Lacrosse hoax rape case where a Crystal Gail Mangum, caused all kinds of damage by claiming 3 white students raped and robbed her.

2008 – Safia Jilani of Chicago was arrested for falsely blaming an invisible white man who “hit her over the head with a gun” and “wrote anti-Muslim stuff on a mirror.

2008 – Continental Airlines flight attendant Sharon Brown falsely claims wife of Joel Osteen assaulted her on the plane and tried to rush the Cockpit – and our winner tried this with another flight attendant in 1995.

2009 – Hofstra University freshman Danmell Ndonye names 4 individuals in a false rape case.

2011 – Matthew Randall Moe falsely accuses two police officers of assaulting him.

2013 – Results finally achieved in the 1987 false rape case of Tawana Brawley – Al Sharpton’s initial claim to fame.

2014 – Richard Kennedy of Blackpool, England falsely claimed to be assaulted because he is gay.

2016 – Kean University student Kayla McKelvey (Leader of a Black student group) is convicted of tweeting anonymous threats to Black Students, to “she wanted more people to attend a 2015 rally on racial issues”

2016 – A 26-year-old Syrian refugee set a hotel on fire in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany; and sprayed swastikas on the walls, to – “protest against the cramped living conditions in the hotel”

2017 – George Nathaniel Stang; a white male church organist spray painted “swastika, “fag church,” and “heil Trump” on St. David’s Episcopal Church in Indiana, to – “mobilize a movement.”

Though I could easily provide hundreds of additional examples, 2018 and 2019 have been banner years for the hoax crime industry in America, with a great number being perpetrated because of the Liberal-Left’s hatred and vitriol for Trump and his supporters.

Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh nomination nightmare.

Adwoa Lewis of Long Island falsely reports 4 Teenagers confronted her while yelling “Trump”, telling her she didn’t belong in the area, and even wrote a faked “go home” note and placed it on her car.

A bisexual senior at North Park University in Chicago claimed she was a victim of a homophobic note and hateful emails following Donald Trump’s win in the presidential election, but made it all up.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says humans only have 10 years to live.

We can’t forget the Covington Kids, Nathaniel Phillips and the Black Hebrew Israel debacle at the anti-abortion March for Life rally in Washington, D.C.

A Texas woman blames law enforcement for an offensive note aimed at Mexicans; turns out she wrote it herself.

A Texas Waiter – Faked a hate crime by writing “We don’t tip terrorist” on a customer’s receipt, whom he blamed.

And our most recent winner in the Jussie Smollett faked attack where “White Trump Supporters” supposedly beat up the Black Gay actor, poured bleach on him and put a noose around his neck.

Innocent lives are forever destroyed when such hoaxes are finally revealed:

1912 – Bill Wilson wrongly spends 6 years in prison for the murder of his wife and daughter: The bones used as evidence as being the bodies of the two supposed victims turned out to be those of several people; the catch here is that the wife and daughter were found alive, living in a different state.

1974 – Gregory Bright and Earl Truvia are wrongfully convicted of murder and spend 27 ½ years in prison.

1980 – Joyce Ann Brown spent 9+ years in prison for a murder and robbery she never committed.

1987 – Glen Woodall is sentenced to two life terms + 203 and 335 years consecutive, on two false accounts of rape, kidnapping, and robbery, and was exonerated after spending 5 years in prison when DNA evidence proved his innocence.

1989 – Debra Jean Milke spent 23+ years in prison on a false charge that she orchestrated the shooting death of her own son.

1992 – Two Black Men: VanDyke Perry and Gregory Counts, served 26 years in prison for a hoax rape.

2002 – Potential Football star Brian Banks served 5+ years in prison for a hoax rape charge; completely ruining any chance he may have had as an NFL prospect.

2008 – Adrian Thomas, pressured by investigators lying about his child dying of blunt force trauma, threaten the arrest his wife for the murder of his son if he doesn’t confess. After 6 years in prison, it turned out the child died from Sepsis.

2016 – 19-year-old Nikki Yovino receives one year in jail for a hoax rape case involving two students of Sacred Heart University.

I don’t believe the worst damage in such cases is in the acts themselves, or even in the intentions of those perpetrating these hoax crimes; the worst damage done here is to real victims of real abuses.

In a world that has become so polarized by the “fake news” mantra against most mainstream media outlets, it’s pretty bad when people have to create hate crimes, because there simply aren’t enough real hate crimes to justify all the activism against such ghost causes.

Real victims of real crimes are increasingly more and more, being viewed with instant skepticism, denial, apathy, and even indifference because such a large number of reported “hate” crimes are actually fraudulent to begin with.

Hoax Crimes not only destroy lives of those directly involved but also send out ripples into the court of public opinion that often cause real crimes to occur, in retaliation or pay-back, by the mindless masses that simply react to anything they believe justifies their own violence.

When used for political aims, such cases remind me of Firefighters who set fires, Law Enforcement officials that commit crimes in order to frame others, and of Munchausen syndrome by proxy: a condition where someone (typically a caregiver) will imagine or even cause harm to their “patient/client” out of selfish desire for attention, to be seen as their “Rescuer/Savior”.

Though Trump is certainly not the 1st Politician or President to be the center of so much directed hoax crime, the use of such for political aims is the truest definition of terrorism.

This needs to stop.
