How many so-called hate crimes are faked? Hard to say. As far as I can tell, nobody is keeping statistics on the fake ones, but the FBI uses our tax money to keep track of the real ones and since passage of the Matthew Shepard/James Byrd, Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, it has authority to investigate them as well. However, even the so-called hate crime this act was named for is questionable.
A recent book by Stephen Jimenez called “The Book of Matt: Hidden Truths About the Murder of Matthew Shepard” asserts that the two men convicted and serving life for the murder were not “homophobes.” One, Jimenez claims, was Shepard’s lover strung out on meth. This twist came out fifteen years ago when the murder was first committed, but was swept under the rug
by homosexual activists who made lots of political hay calling it a “hate crime” with the willing cooperation of our Mainstream Media. Jimenez was asked why, as a homosexual himself, he would write such a book. “As a gay man,” he said, “I felt it was a moral thing to do.” He makes the case that Shepard was killed while trading methamphetamine for sex. The mainstream media has largely ignored Jimenez’s book. Homosexual activists have pressured bookstores to cancel Jimenez’s appearances.
So, if this signature “hate crime” is a fake, how many others are too? It makes me wonder. I began keeping a file of fake hate crimes a few years ago and there are far too many examples to possibly list in an 800-word, op-ed piece like this. According to FBI statistics, there were 5796 hate crimes committed in 2012. Of these, slightly more than half were racial, almost a fifth involved sexual orientation, and most of the rest were religious - the vast majority of those against Jews. I assume the FBI counts only convictions because otherwise there’s no crime, right?
|The Allegedly Reverend Al Sharpton and Brawley|
The Mainstream Media has been faked out numerous times going back to the allegedly Reverend Al Sharpton’s charges in the Tawana Brawley rape charge and more recently in the Duke Lacrosse team rape allegation. Later, both of those were widely reported as scams, but when more recent cases are found to be faked, the media has been giving the falsification scant attention compared to the original allegations.
Just the past few months produced these:
A fellow in Paris, Tennessee claimed he’d been robbed, beaten, and had a homosexual slur written on his forehead last month. Last week, he was arrested for withholding information on the crime. He’d done it all to himself.
|Waitress Dayna Morales fired, could face criminal charges|
A lesbian waitress in New Jersey claimed last month a customer wrote on her check that she wouldn’t be tipped because of her lifestyle. She got lots of attention on television and in newspapers and received donations from around the world. She was exposed after the customers produced the actual receipt with no slur and showing a generous tip. She was fired.
Last August two students were caught distributing anti-Muslim, anti-homosexual, anti-Jewish, and racist literature at Oberlin College. They were Democrat Obama activists and said they were only kidding. The faculty had gotten all riled up for months. Mainstream Media gave it lots of attention, but virtually ignored it when discovered to be faked.
After a majority of Americana twice elected a black president, it looked like racial discrimination had disappeared from America but for a lunatic fringe. After cities, states, colleges and virtually every other public institution outlawed of discrimination against homosexuals, and state after state has legalized gay “marriage,” it became harder to choreograph victimhood. Are the hustlers and thugs who made a living out of racial and sexual discrimination trying to keep their faux outrage going? Are they manufacturing hate crimes now?
Most recently has been the attempt by GLAAD to make Phil Robertson’s expression of traditional, Judeo-Christian teachings on homosexuality into hate speech. That’s what the thugs at GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders) and the so-called Human Rights Campaign (HRC - largest homosexual lobbying group in America) do to anyone who expresses disapproval of sexual behavior they strive to normalize. They pushed the A&amE Network and Cracker Barrel into dropping Robertson and Duck Dynasty products respectively, but there was a huge public backlash - again.
Evidence is mounting that Americans have had enough of knee-jerk racial and homosexual goon squads.
