Shocking discovery in
hoax bias incident
at Vassar College

Daily Caller, by Robby Soave

Original Article

Posted By:trapper, 11/27/2013 4:35:50 PM

Reports of bias incidents at Vassar College that involved hateful messages left on students’ doors were actually elaborate hoaxes — and the perpetrator is none other than the student member of the Bias Incident Response Team, The Daily Caller has learned. This fall semester at the liberal arts college in New York saw a curiously high number of bias incident reports. [snip] The task force had one student member: Genesis Hernandez, who is transgendered and was also a vice president of the Vassar Student Association (VSA), the student government.

Comments:
If a person pasted feathers on himself and crowed like a rooster at dawn every day, no one would be surprised if he showed additional signs of mental illness. Yet when a man thinks he is a woman, or vice versa, everyone is somehow shocked and surprised when he/she exhibits other maladaptive behaviors.

Excellent comment, trapper. (I also like the playful use of "shocking" in the headline.)

Dovetails nicely with yesterday´s story about the NJ lesbian waitress who fabricated a nasty note on one of her customers receipts.
Just like blacks, women, Muslims and other assorted "minorities", the left has convinced these folks to play the victim card to advance their standing, rather than treating them like human beings.
What a despicable and destructive thing to do to people.

Is "Genesis" a man who thinks he´s a woman or a woman who thinks she´s a man? Not clear to me. Anyway, no harm, no foul. Nobody got hurt(except feelings, maybe)so this made me laugh. The joke is on snooty old Vassar.

Hardly "shocking". These fake hate crimes happen quite frequently these days. Probably more fake ones than real ones.

I´m getting the impression from recent weird happenings; knock out games, fake racism, fake ethnic crimes, etc. that there are a lot of people in this country who no longer have an anchor in decent, moral, human to human responses, and are doing desperate acts to get attention or cry for help. Destroying the family unit has cut a lot of folks off from guidance and comfort of belonging somewhere , where they count. No, I don´t have an answer or easy fix, but it is getting more widespread.

These malcontents seem to have such huge egos, serious look-at-me disorder. And when no one looks, because honestly, most people are more concerned with their own self-interests and don´t CARE about the tender feeeeeeeelings of the protected ones - this is upsetting to them, as is any slight or even misunderstanding. So it´s no wonder how frequently we hear of episodes of fraud or a hoax to crate a great put-upon and wounding of their fragile existences. It helps to draw attention to themselves and they get to play victim in a spotlight.

Shocking discovery? Hardly. Most of these stories turn out to be hoaxes. No doubt there are occasional exceptions when what is claimed to be true is actually true - but I cannot think of one offhand. They are almost always fabrications concocted by malcontents, sociopaths or the mentally ill. Perpetrators seldom seem to suffer significant personal consequences from such frauds, or if they do, we do not hear about them. Some, like John Kerry and Al Sharpton, actually avoid prison and go on to fame and fortune.

Certainly not "shocking," since this has become standard operating procedure for militant ______ (fill in the blank). And there are no consequences because this is now accepted by these militants and their enablers as a necessary tactic in their war against the "enemy" (i.e., normal people).

And while I´m at it, though slightly off topic...what´s the deal with Vassar still being an "all-wymyn" institution? I thought diversity was the desired goal these days. Ever notice that all-male institutions (military academies, Boys´ Clubs, etc.) are now forcibly inter-and-trans-gender safe, but all-wymyn institutions are still, ummm, impregnable? What´s with that, Vassarettes?

Shocking.

When there was a spate of "bias crimes" against Muslims shortly after 9-11 (most of which were insurance scams) I realized that I had already decided the majority of reported bias/hate crimes against blacks and gays were self-inflicted, and the ones against Muslims probably were, too.

It has been so long since an honestly biased crime has been reported, were there ever any real ones?

A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday ordered Google Inc to remove from its YouTube video-sharing website an anti-Islamic film that had sparked protests across the Muslim world. By a 2-1 vote, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday rejected Google´s assertion that the removal of the film "Innocence of Muslims," amounted to a prior restraint of speech that violated the U.S. Constitution. The plaintiff, Cindy Lee Garcia, had objected to the film after learning that it incorporated a clip she had made for a different movie, which had been partially dubbed and in which she

At the Olympics opener, there was Vladimir Putin, looking every inch the stolid Michael Corleone in the baptism scene from Godfather II. Putin was waiting impassively for those big snowflakes to turn into Olympic rings while plans were hatching in the Ukraine to commit murder. The Corleone baptism went better than the snowflakes spectacular, though. The snowflakes malfunction was worthy of the Soviet era. One snowflake failed to transform -- except on Russian TV, which, per London´s Telegraph, opens magically as Putin watches coolly. Fakery has always been a Russian specialty; brutality another.

As NewsBusters previously reported, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry and a panel of comedians last weekend senselessly mocked a picture of former Governor Mitt Romney’s family because it included his adopted black grandson. Although she’s already apologized on Twitter, Harris-Perry began her show Saturday with a heartfelt apology much of the time fighting through a lump in her throat and tears: MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY: Good morning.

House Republicans "capitulated" in agreeing to the two-year budget deal reached last night and left the country to deal with an unsustainable fiscal situation until the peak of the presidential primaries in 2015, when nothing will get done, former federal budget director David Stockman told CNBC on Wednesday. "First, let´s be clear—it´s a joke and betrayal," Stockman, who served under President Ronald Reagan, said on "Squawk on the Street." "It´s the final surrender of the House Republican leadership to Beltway politics and kicking the can and ignoring the budget monster that´s hurtling down the road."

We spend more than any other nation on earth yet rank in the bottom quartile (26th out of 34) of OECD (developed) nations in the latest international comparison, the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA).

Josh Rogin reported in the Daily Beast Monday that there is a rift in Barack Obama’s foreign policy team over Egypt. “Before Secretary of State John Kerry’s recent trip to Cairo,” Rogin wrote, “National Security Adviser Susan Rice told him to make strong statements in public and private about the trial of deposed President Mohamed Morsi.

GCC member countries – Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – already deem homosexual acts unlawful.

The attorney for Lois Lerner blasted the House GOP for recalling the former IRS official to testify next week, saying it would only serve to embarrass her and could increase threats against Lerner and her family. Bill Taylor, Lerner’s attorney, told House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that he told committee staff in January that Lerner would continue to invoke her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination if recalled, and that she would "happily testify" if given immunity. Taylor, of Zuckerman Spaeder, said he heard nothing further from the committee until Issa wrote to him on Tuesday, saying he was hauling Lerner
