Why Hate Crime Hoaxes are Dangerous (According to your Friendly Neighborhood Liberal)

index-315754_1280This is the era of the hate-crime hoax. Just this week we found out that a Jew was behind the much decried “anti-Semitic” bomb threats to Jewish centers in the last few months. So it was interesting that it came out this week that the horrifying story of a White Texas girl, that she had been kidnapped and gang-raped by three Black males, was a falsehood. The hoax seems to have had no political motive, and was probably perpetrated with the intent of cover up for cheating on her boyfriend.

It is worth mentioning that this is the only such hate-crime hoax I have ever heard of. With White people as stigmatized and disempowered in society as we are, it just isn’t worth it to a White person to make up a story like this. Not usually. In that sense then, this story is a sign, albeit a regrettable one, that things are changing for the better for White people: it means positive things when someone thought that this might work for a White girl too, like it had worked for Crystal Mangum, Sharmeka Moffitt, and Tawana Brawley—even though doing it is of course not a positive thing.

There have been many others who have staged “hate incidents” and blamed them on White people. There is a great list of recent incidents here. And when all of those incidents happened, and were proven to be a hoax, there was nary a word about the fact that such hoaxes are malicious. Nothing about how they slander whole groups of people. Oh, but this hoax was different. The people being falsely accused weren’t White—and that makes all the difference. Just ask the Denison, Texas police chief Jay Burch:

“Breana Harmon Talbott’s hoax was also insulting to our community and especially offensive to the African-American community due to her description of the so-called suspects in her hoax. The anger and hurts caused from such a hoax are difficult and all so unnecessary,” Burch said.

“We have mixed emotions on a case like this,” Burch said. “We’re happy it didn’t occur, but there could be permanent damage as a result — a damage of relationships within our community, damage to the reputation of our community.”. .

“These kind of things are hurtful to the community in general and specifically when a race is alleged to have committed a crime on a particular race — it’s going to be hurtful to that part of our community,” Burch said. “It’s difficult and in this case it was just so unnecessary.”

Oh is that so? White people should know about it. No one is more perniciously slandered, and since every hate-crime hoax I have heard of before or after this one, was against White people, this sudden discovery of how damaging they can be sure is interesting.

Where was the acknowledgment of all the damage caused “when a race is alleged to have committed a crime on a particular race” when the race alleged to have committed the crime is White? Why haven’t authorities in any of these anti-White hate-crime hoaxes bemoaned that fact that such hoaxes are “especially offensive” to the White community due to descriptions of the alleged attackers in those hoaxes?

Instead, those other authorities said things like this when they found out about the hoaxes:

“Basically we had to follow the facts,” Cobb said, according to The News Star. “This was a disturbing case for all involved. All indications show this was a self-inflicted situation.”

Mr. Nifong declined interview requests Friday, but said in an e-mail message that his decision to dismiss the rape charges showed he was “willing to go in whatever direction the evidence takes me.” And in a three-hour interview on Thursday, Mr. Nifong said he would not hesitate to drop all the charges if the accuser expressed doubt about the identity of the men she has accused when she sees all three defendants at a pretrial hearing set for February.

“If she came in and said she could not identify her assailants, then we don’t have a case,” Mr. Nifong said. On the other hand, he continued, “If she says, yes, it’s them, or one or two of them, I have an obligation to put that to a jury.”

. . .Nifong said that he still believes something happened in the bathroom at the party that night.

If not a rape, Nifong testified, then perhaps a physical assault or act of intimidation. “Something happened to make people leave that scene so quickly.”

Oh the difference it makes! No talk of damage to relationships, insult of the community, or offense to the White community. Just dry recitations of having to follow the facts—as if the facts were a burden.

But then again, facts are always a burden to the left when they don’t cast blame on White people. There are no more persistent haters of truth and justice.

No surprise here: just the left being its ever predictable anti-White self.
