Leftists Turn to Fake Hate Crimes After Seeing Trump's America Isn't as Bigoted as Dems Promised

Share

In a world of fake news and hateful bias, one of the most malicious acts that can be perpetrated on the American public is a hate crime hoax.

A hate crime hoax occurs when a person or persons fabricate a bigoted act, then claim they were the victim.

The establishment media typically pounces because the lie fits their narrative.

And the story goes viral. The only problem is that the act was fake.

How often does this happen, you might ask?

Well, independent journalist Andy Ngo, who’s simply the best at assembling records of these types of hoaxes, just released his newest list.

“For Pride month, I assembled in one place some of the most prominent confirmed and alleged hate crime hoaxes involving LGBT+ identified people in recent years. A news source is provided for every anecdote,” he tweeted. (If you don’t already, you should follow @MrAndyNgo on Twitter. Immediately.)

First, Ngo listed the hoax at St. David’s Episcopal church in Bean Blossom, Indiana.

And remember when supporters of President Donald Trump were blamed for Nazi vandalism in a Brooklyn synagogue? It was a hoax.

Right before Trump was elected, a church in Mississippi was burned, and it was set up to look like Trump supporters did it. It was a hoax.
