I don’t know if there have been more “hate crimes” committed in the name of Donald Trump or anti-hate crime hoaxes committed to make Trump supporters look bad.
I’m suspecting it’s the latter, but it’s hard to tell, because the media hypes everything and we never really learn how it washes out. Was it a hoax or not?
Well, thanks to our friends at Town Hall, they have the top ten genuine anti-Trump hoaxes that were actually reported as hoaxes by the media. Who knows how many more there were …
A black man was arrested for arson and vandalizing his own African-American church a week before the election. He spray painted “vote Trump” on the outside and set his church on fire.
Something tells me he wasn’t singing Jesus Culture’s “Set a Fire” worship song, either.
An 18-year-old Muslim woman claimed she was robbed by two white men outside of the University of Louisiana Lafayette campus. She said they took her wallet and hijab in the attack, and identified one of them as having a Trump hat.
Well, she lied and was charged with filing a false report by the police.
A black woman had a viral Facebook post alleging a group of white, male Trump supporters harassed her at a gas station — until the police started investigating. Then she deleted her post and recanted the story.
A gay Canadian filmmaker said he was assaulted by Trump supporters election night at a bar, then beaten in an alleyway. He posted a bloodied picture of himself in an Emergency Room as evidence, saying they smashed a beer bottle on his head along with several gay slurs.
Turns out none of it was true.
An 18-year-old Muslim woman in NYC said she was attacked by three drunk men who screamed “Donald Trump!” and called her an “f**ing terrorist” along with “Get the hell out of the country.” She said they tried to yank her hijab off and no one on the train helped her out.
Not only was this made up, but her excuse was that she lied to avoid the wrath of her parents’ curfew punishment. Could this be classified as a Muslim on Muslim hate crime?
Two Northwestern University freshman spray-painted racist, homophobic graffiti along with Trump’s name inside the university’s chapel, along with a few other derogatory things defacing pictures of Muslim students and the word “God.”
If you’re going to do something like this don’t go for every single immature, racist stereotype — of course they were freshmen.
Anti-Latino graffiti at Elon University that said “Bye Bye Latinos Hasta La Vista” was done by a latino student who later claimed it was a “joke.”
Looks like the joke is on the media for not investigating before reporting.
This one is just bizarre. Police say a man faked a hate crime, set his ex-girlfriend’s car on fire and then staged his own abduction, using his own blood and writing “KKK” and “Trump” in an attempt to throw off detectives.
A black, female Bowling Green State University (BGSU) student claimed that white, male students wearing Trump shirts threw rocks at her and yelled racial slurs the day after the election.
It turns out, after a thorough investigation by police, she wasn’t even in the location she said she was in, and she only continued to change her story.
Three black students claimed to be attacked by white men on a bus – causing protests and outrage on social media and their campus, even a tweet from HRC – but it turned out they were the “aggressors” on the bus – teaming up on a 19-year-old white woman.
Surprised they didn’t blame Russia…
You almost have to feel sorry for these people and their desperate grab for attention.
Or maybe not …
