Another Day, Another Fake Anti-Gay Hate Crime

Between the homophobic birthday invitation (fake), the lesbian waitress receipt (fake) and Matthew Shepard (fake)… there seem to be more fake gay hate crimes than real ones.

A UNC-Chapel Hill freshman who told police he was attacked by a man who burned his hand and called him an anti-gay slur made a false report,

A lesbian couple spray painted the phrase “kill the gay” on their own garage

Floyd Elliott, of Independence, told police that two attackers cut him in the stomach, branded him with a hot knife, and attempted to carve the word “Fag” on his forehead. Later, Elliott admitted to police that the injuries were self-inflicted.

A Tennessee health food store owner who claimed that three men beat him and robbed his store in an anti-gay attack was arrested for filing a false police report

A rash of gay-bashing incidents at Tamalpais High School was the work of a student gay leader who claimed she was the victim of hate crimes,

A series of “hate crimes” at Vassar College were an elaborate hoax, carried out by the left-wing leader of the school’s official “Bias Incident Response Team.” Messages included “Hey Tranny. Know Your Place.”

In March, hundreds of students at Central Connecticut State University held a rally to back Alexandra Pennell, a student who told the crowd that she had been receiving notes in her dormitory room attacking her for being a lesbian. Now Pennell has been expelled from the university and faces numerous criminal charges that she faked the notes,

An openly gay student at the College of New Jersey who told a campus gathering last spring that he received death threats and hate mail has confessed to fabricating the messages

A 15-year-old transgender student in California who claimed to have been beaten and sexually assaulted in a school bathroom recanted after a police investigation

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. But here’s one from 2012.

A young man who told police he was beaten up in a would-be hate crime appeared in court today admitting that he made the entire incident up.

The story of Joseph Baken travelled from Missoula, Montana across the country when a picture of his scratched and bruised face made waves on the internet.

Now, Baken has declared in court that he made the false police report after video surfaced of him attempting to do a back flip and failing.

So it was really an anti-somersault hate crime. And now here it comes again (graphic content at link), except this time it’s from the UK.

 A drama student who became an internet sensation after claiming he was savagely beaten up for being gay has admitted he caused his injuries himself when he tripped on the pavement.

Richard Kennedy, 18, from Blackpool, told police he was set upon by a gang of homophobes when he left a gay nightclub in Preston, Lancashire,.

He posted photographs on Facebook of his battered and bleeding face, dislodged teeth, and gaping knee wound, with the caption ‘An example [of] why homophobia is wrong and it’s disgusting that it’s still around in 2014′.

“A sex life is private and has nothing to do with no one, needless to say it’s absolutely disgraceful to violently attack someone because of who they are. My confidence has gone, im utterly embarrassed to be seen in public, the only reason I am putting this picture up is because I want you to see me as an example. An example why homophobia is wrong and it’s disgusting that it’s still around in 2014.”

The post was shared by more than 182,000 well-wishers.

Even though Kennedy had given a fairly detailed description of what happened, writing, “got violently assaulted last night by a group of c___s, all because of my sexuality, covered in blood and literally stomped on my face causing my teeth to go into my gums,” the police decided to pretend that it was all a big misunderstanding.

“This is just another homophobic attack that happens every day, but it needs to stop, this is wrong, this is disgusting and using sexual preference as a motive to be violent and abusive is utter inhumane,” Kennedy wrote.

I agree. This rash of fake homophobic crimes is disgusting, abusive and needs to stop.

But just wait. Tomorrow there will be another one and that Drama major you went to college with will share it along with a rainbow flag and some nasty comment about Republicans.

    By God, they think to themselves, I’m going to capitalize on “hate crimes” against gays, get a lot of attention, and maybe collect a lot of money!

    • laura r

      a SUE op. like macro racism, but more dramatic & more $$$.

  • UCSPanther

    False rape accusations: Same thing.

    The Romans had a law that allowed for a person who falsely accused another, especially out of malice to receive the same penalty as though they committed the crime themselves.

    Maybe if a few of these whiners got it for hate crimes and other charges as their hoaxes would entail, the others would think twice before filing false reports.

    • truebearing

      Great idea. That would put an end to it.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      So does the Bible.

      • MarkusUSA

        Technically incorrect. No such punishment for false witness exists in the Bible. All it says is that it will not go unpunished… meaning God will dish out the punishment.

    • A Z

      The woman who made the false charges in Lincoln, Nebraska got a week in jail and 2 years probation.

      Before she caved, she told the press how disappointed she was with the police. I don’t know who she wanted the police to round up?

      • Toa

        She probably wanted the cops to go after all the white males within a 100 mile radius. They didn’t, hence her whining.

  • Norman Dostal

    mentally ill people-sad, but stop bashing gays and these problems will go away. Mathew died from self hating gay bashers-how is that fake?

    • truebearing

      Matthew Shepard? His death wasn’t fake but the story concocted about it being gay bashing was completely fake. He died from violence that resulted from two meth abusers going psychotic after a sustained meth binge. Shepard was apparently involved in dealing meth with his murderers.

      You are falling for a false narrative fabricated by the same kinds of opportunistic, morally bankrupt gays we just read about.

    • UCSPanther

      That narrative has been shredded, burned and completely laid bare.

      The lesson: Never get involved in the drug trade. That will cut down your chances of dying in a violent and horrific manner drastically.

    • laura r

      mathew was involved w/hustlers, drug dealing. he wasnt a nice boy taking a stroll & was victim to knockout game. the murderer should be in jail, but mathew is no poster boy. bad example, is that the best you can do?

    • CowboyUp

      Apparently ‘these problems’ did go away, or leftist gays wouldn’t have to bash themselves and perpetrate hoaxes.

  • A Z

    Here is another fake hate crime that made national news. The person who put the nation through all the sturm and drang received a week in prison.

    “Police, LGBT community bonded through reported hate crime”

    “Detective Inspector Paddy O’Neill said: ‘We managed to recover some CCTV footage which shows the injured party falling face-first onto the pavement. We have showed him the CCTV and he now accepts his injuries were caused during the fall.
    ‘Having had oversight of the investigation… I accept his report was made in good faith.’”
    I don’t know which one is worse:the moron who created all the fuzz or the Police…

    homosexuality is a mental illness. It explains why long-married men turn homosexual,it explains how homosexuals can get better and return to normality.It explains Ellen DeGeneres statement that she was normal until another girl converted her to homosexuality. It explains the high rate of suicides of homosexuals. It explains the unhealthy,destructive behavior of homosexuals,even in the face of serious diseases such as HIV/AIDS.
    Homosexuality wasn’t removed from the mental illness list by scientific breakthrough, they weren’t cured, the Gaystapo simply forced a vote on the APA.

    There’s no such thing as a “chosen sexual orientation.” There are only abnormal sexual preferences which are not chosen per se but can be chosen to be addressed.

  • wileyvet

    This is how the left operates. It does not matter that these are fake, because it is what could happen in a racist, homophobic, sexist, islamophobic etc. etc. etc. society like America. It is always the agendas that matter, and little things like truth only get in the way. Lies and deception are their stock in trade, because their real motives and ends are so abhorrent that no sane person would swallow what they are pushing otherwise.

  • truebearing

    There is a pattern here. These people want to be victims. They want to be pitied for their weakness, but use it as a weapon. The tyranny of the weak…that is the inverted America we now live in.

    • Terry DeCarlo

      Fuck you.

        Well said.

And I know you’re not gay I was jk. Lighten up man. You is funny. Where you live? I’m very curious. Someplace quite secluded I’ll bet. Scary.

      • A Z

        Are you telling us you are not a twink or a chub but a castro clone or a bear?

        One Castro clone has a popular blog and he had 3 speeches on the bad zex. It seemed to me that he picked psychologically damaged people to satisfy his lust. So after reading them it looked like mental disorder to me.

        I mean would a sane culture come up with the terminology of top and bottom? That sounds like master and slave. Now that is sick, sick, sick.

            Wow. Is this a joke? You’re obsessed with gay terms and lingo. I’m not. That’s why I’m normal and not like those screeching queens you always see. Get over it man. They exist. Ignore them, please. You’re eating yourself up. You actually scare me, I have to go. wow. This is a joke right A-Z? I mean it, I’m scared. Wow. Where you live A-Z, just curious.

            Sorry, but we will be filming gay bars and gay parades. Cell Phone cameras and other cameras are so ubiquitous. Don’t forget about ObamaCare and all the data collection.

            A few years ago I was at a popular gay blog. They supported trannies. They had no clue as to the cause genetically, epi-genetically, or whatever, but by G-d they were going to support them no matter what.

            Question is would they support it if the cause was not so much genetic but societal pressure? You should study baboons, chimps and other monkeys more (And not just bonobos – that is a gay favorite).

            Why does it matter? When you have Joycelyn Elders and committee wanting to mainstream trannies into the military and putting out a report, it is a problem.

            Why would I know about tops and bottoms? The gay community made sure everyone knew. They outed the tough on illegal immigration sheriff of Pima country. Some of the proof was Grindr accounts. Your kind did this.

            I was a baboon conservationist on the cape peninsula in South Africa for 7 years. Got arrested a few times, but it was worth it.

          No wonder the idiot has to live with his Grandma, he can’t even figure out how to play a DVD on his own.
          It’s funny how so many gay men go drama queen bimbo when they try to go femme, and how so many gay women go redneck Ahole when they try to go masculine. They adopt the worst stereotypical caricatures of the gender they are trying to emulate.

      • Drakken

        The question is? What were you doing to put yourself in that predicament in the first place?

          Toasted drunk trying to buy meth in a gay area, that’s what Drunkken I mean Drakken hahaha hahaha They got the guy too, white, 6’11″ I aint lie either. Can I post it on here,

          • truebearing

            You sound like you still are drunk and doing meth.

          • Drakken

            Ok twinkle toes, goody for you, stay drunk and on meth and I have a feeling it will happen again.

      • truebearing

        Brain injury? My brother has the same problem. He doesn’t have any impulse control either.

  • Tothepoint

    Same with so called Muslim victims in the USA. There are no Muslim victims. Just peacefully talking to a Muslim in the USA is now a felony crime. Hateful Muslims who feel they are superior commit real felons and lie about others who dare to talk to them.

          • Terry DeCarlo

            Now that you mention it, yeah you have something there but did this have to be called “Another Day, Another Fake Anti-Gay Hate Crime?” What maybe .002473% of mos have filed a fake anti-gay hate crime and you guys get your panties in a bunch? Calm down fellas, calm down.

          • Terry DeCarlo

            make that .0002473% of flamers. Good night cowboys, I’ll be dreamin’ bout ya hee hee.

          • A Z

            I personally know of two “hate” crimes second hand. We are talking 2 1/2 and 3 decades ago. It is not the people whom I hang around talk about, plan or would want to do.

            We do however care if educators are using books like Heather has 2 Mommies and try to teach as a lifestyle to be celebrated.

            We do care about the gay agenda when civil unions are not enough. Then we are being told ‘civil unions for everyone with people getting married at a church of their choice’ is not enough. at that point people realize that this is not about tolerance but you have to celebrate the gay lifestyle.

            As far as your stat given the # of hate crimes if you multiply the number of fake hate crimes listed here by 10 you would have about 10%. so yes it is a problem.

          • laura r

            im sick of all this gay stuff. so are my gay friends.

          • 1stworlder

            You have a good point when the San Francisco Gate published who committed the most hate crimes queens howled because it wasn’t whitey.

          • CowboyUp

            Sure you can post a pic of your bill here, click that little gray picture graphic in the lower left of the comment dialog box. While you’re at it, you can also post a photo of the police report and the pics they took of your injuries. A pic of your DD-214 would be nice too.

        You have been here less than a month or you have not been reading comments or you have just came to this site.

        Obviously, we really hate people lying about being victimized.

        Seeing as people have started to collect the false reports, one of the things we want its to see what percentage of crimes are false police reports. Seeing as people have started to collect the false reports

          Granted, but did this “article” have to be called “Another Day, Another Fake Anti-Gay Hate Crime?” Fuck You Daniel Greenfield, let’s have a drink sometime, just the two of us. NO not at a gay bar dipshit

          Actually, it would make a lot of “activists” very unhappy. They rely on “hate crimes” for their livelihood. If there are no hate crimes they must manufacture them to stay in “business”. Wait for a “real” hate crime and see the absolute glee from the activists.

      Waste of resource and unneeded anyway. You destruct the myths. Then you use John 8:11

      John 8:11 “Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more”

      I think many of these people are “made” by society. After you get a critical mass then it takes on a life of its’ won, which is a very pernicious thing. If you crowd rats, they will turn on each other even if they have all the food and water they need. There is always a pecking order and people are subject to it from day 1. No animal can betray its DNA. I have seen vertebrates turn on each other on the basis of a difference of 1 allele on a color gene. then there is the confusion factor.

  • Jimmie the Greek

    False hate crimes are alleged in order to cause fear of violence in the minds of minorities. That means they are not “false” hate crimes, they are quite intentional hate crimes. They are intended to terrorize an ethnic, racial or gender group, and they clearly do that.

    It may be that the perpetrators of these “false” hate crimes hope the ULTIMATE outcome will be positive (i.e. more rallies, greater hate crime penalties, more white guilt, more hetero shame, etc.) but they are achieving those goals by terroristic means–not by terrorizing the “guilty” people (i..e. whites, Christians, heaters) but by terrorizing the very minorities they say they love.

    They should be punished for terrorism/hate. Whatever their ultimate goals are should not matter.
