A massive racism hoax took place at Oberlin College in February 2013 in which two students made seemingly racist, anti-Semitic and other such posters, graffiti and emails for the purpose of getting a reaction on campus, not because they believed the hostile messages. At least one of the two was an Obama supporter with strong progressive, anti-racist politics.
School officials and local police knew the identity of the culprits, who were responsible for most if not all of such incidents on campus, yet remained silent as the campus reacted as if the incidents were real. National media attention focused on campus racism at Oberlin for weeks without knowing it was a hoax.
The hoax was confirmed when Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller recently obtained police records. Now it’s out in the open. Here is the history of how the hoax developed, played out in the media, and was covered up by the Oberlin administration.
The “hate” incidents cause campus and the media to erupt in protest
During February 2013 into early March, there were racist, homophobic and anti-Semitic postings on an Oberlin message board and in graffiti and signs around campus.
The issues burst onto the national media scene when a student claimed to see someone walking in a Klan robe late at night.
Professor Bill Jacobson, who wrote the above, notes that Michelle Malkin – an Oberlin College alum herself – was also on top this issue from the get go. She wrote a follow-up yesterday. More here. To make matters worse on this story is the discovery that Oberlin College officials KNEW this was a hoax … but said nothing. Of this, Darleen Click writes:
The college’s administration knew early on this was a hoax and chose to remain silent. They deliberately fed into the Leftist narrative that America is more racist than ever.
Will there be any consequences for Oberlin’s despicable behavior?
Probably not, as “fake but accurate” is a guiding Leftist principle.
Sad, but true.
As I’ve said many times before, if “hate crimes” are so widespread in this country, why do liberals CONSTANTLY have to fabricate them in order to “prove” what a “racist/sexist/homophobic” nation the US supposedly is?? Maddening.
