I mentioned this two days ago, but it bears repeating: you seem to hear of a lot of hate crimes hoaxes these days, but they all seem to come from the Left. Here is a fairly extensive list of such hoaxes.
The vast majority of these "crimes" were ostensibly perpetrated against either blacks or gays, but in fact were committed by members of those communities. Their purpose seemed to have been to stir up outrage against people who target those groups. There were a also a handful of anti-Semitic crimes, though several of these seemed to have been committed for the purpose of covering up insurance fraud, rather than stirring up outrage against anti-Semites. And there were a few rape hoaxes listed.
There were two white women who falsely claimed to have been assaulted by blacks. One was a woman who poured acid on herself, disfiguring her own face. (Think Munchausen's Syndrome.) And one was a woman who was trying to cover up her extramarital affair (her lover had beaten her up.) Neither of them seemed motivated by a desire to stir up racial animosity.
I didn't see a single hate crime hoax "aimed" at white, heterosexual males. I saw none directed at Hispanics, either. And I saw only one directed at Asians.
Almost all of the hoaxes were theoretically perpetrated against members of America's most favored "victim" groups, blacks and gays.
What statement does this make about their movements, and more to the point, their adherents?
What exactly are the benefits accruing to those who manage to successfully position themselves as "victims" these days? They must be considerable if people go to such lengths to be viewed as such.
How dishonest and shameless does someone have to be in order to stage such a hoax, and then try to maintain it until he is caught?
And what does it say about the Left that the hoaxers all seem to come from their side?
