Virulent anti-Trumper and TV actor Jussie Smollett now stands accused of creating a fake hate crime to get attention. But his alleged faking is only one of a growing number of fake hate crimes passed off as real by the media in the era of Trump.
When Donald Trump came to office in 2016, liberals started the gnashing of teeth and rending of garments over the “wave of racism” they insisted was swamping the nation. And to “prove” their claim, they began touting a long list of “hate crimes” all of which quickly turned out to be fake, staged “crimes” meant to help the liberals prove their lies.
The Daily Caller recently posted a list of these fake hate crimes proving that liberals don’t care about truth. As long as it fits their agenda, they’ll push it out.
The list of dozens of fake hate crimes shows that the liberal media will report anything as a “hate crime” so that the preponderance of reports makes America look bad, even if those reports later turn out to be fake, manufactured “crimes” instead of true incidents of hate.
You see, the media’s goal is not to report the truth. Its goal is to make it look like the nation is filled with hate. Their process is this: Report the fake hate crime as a true example of hate all because of Donald Trump. Don’t do any fact checking, just report it. Then, when the police investigate and discover it is a false report and that there is no hate crime at all, the media then quietly notes the truth later knowing full well that few people will see the correction and that most people will only remember the banner headlines that there are hundreds of hate crimes being perpetrated because of Trump.
The media lies. That, they feel, is now their job. Lies meant to push a liberal agenda.
In any case, Daily Caller has a growing list of fake hate crimes this week.
Here are a few:
ANTI-MUSLIM HATE CRIME IN MICHIGAN TURNS OUT TO BE A HOAX (NOV. 2016)
A Muslim woman at the University of Michigan received national attention from national outlets like The Washington Post in November 2016 after she claimed a drunk 20-something man threatened to light her on fire if she didn’t remove her hijab. The university condemned the “hateful attack,” which turned out to be a hoax.
BISEXUAL STUDENT FAKES TRUMP-INSPIRED HATE CRIME (NOV. 2016)
Taylor Volk, an openly bisexual senior at North Park University claimed to be the target of hateful notes and emails following Trump’s election in November 2016. Volk told NBC News that “I just want them to stop.” But the “them” referenced by Volk turned out to be herself, as the whole thing was fabricated.
GAS STATION RACISM GOES VIRAL — THEN POLICE DEBUNK IT (NOV. 2016)
Philadelphia woman Ashley Boyer claimed in November 2016 that she was harassed at a gas station by white, Trump-supporting males, one of whom pulled a weapon on her. Boyer claimed that the men “proceeded to talk about the election and how they’re glad they won’t have to deal with n—–s much longer.” Boyer deleted her post after it went viral and claimed the men had been caught and were facing criminal charges. Local police debunked her account.
WHITE MEN ROB MUSLIM WOMAN OF HER HIJAB AND WALLET — EXCEPT IT NEVER HAPPENED (NOV. 2016)
An 18-year-old Muslim woman in Louisiana claimed in November 2016 that two white men, one of whom was wearing a Trump hat, attacked and robbed her, taking her wallet and hijab while yelling racial slurs. She later admitted to the Lafayette Police Department that she made the whole thing up.
Daily Caller has many, many more and the list grows nearly every month as liberals fake “hate crimes” in order to smear Trump and the right.
