One should add further fake 'hate-crimes'

Reader comment on item: More Muslim "Hate Crime" Myths

Submitted by Anon. (Israel), Dec 19, 2016 at 10:27

1. The 18 year old woman in NY who pretended she was attacked on the subway in "Trump's America", which she assured people "is real".
2. The 18 year old woman in Britain who pretended to have been similarly attacked a few weeks ago, and who confessed she made up the event.

3. The fake 'hate-crime' of a Sikh placing a holy and old Sikh book on the wall or at the doorstep of a Sikh temple, which had originally been described as an attack in which assailants threw "a holy book" at a Sikh temple,
quote: "In a "hate incident", a Sikh holy book was "maliciously" thrown over the locked gates of a gurdwara in the West Yorkshire region of England."

4. The fake "hate-crime" in which newspapers all over the world pretended that a right wing nationalist in Europe (I think it was in France) ran over a Muslim woman and pulled out his phone to take a photo of her. Anyone looking closely at the photo would have noticed he looked middle-eastern. Later on it was announced his name is Mohammed.

By the way, I do not doubt that all or almost all of the nazi signs which had curiously cropped up after Trump's election were drawn by "social justice warriors", who would consider themselves to be perfectly justified in doing so, knowing these would be found and blamed on Trump supporters. They'd see what they're doing as a kind of 'victimless crime', which hurts only Trump supporters, whom they believe to be Nazis anyway. The equivalent of having crooked cops plant evidence on people they believe are guilty.

It would also have filled them with immense pride at seeing the media report on their handiwork. How often does one get to act and see it reported on national media?

They would have felt extremely proud and very very virtuous to boot. At the very least the media ought to have reported the possibility that the nasty fringe of the left known as Social Justice Warriors have a tremendous incentive to draw such signs.
