Hate crime that is. Because damn it, hate crimes are a serious problem, even if nutty Leftists have to make them up. Dan Riehl, with a new look to his blog, tells the tale of deceit by Charlie Rogers, Lesbian, catalyst, and liar
A former University of Nebraska women’s basketball star faked an attack in which she allegedly carved anti-gay slurs into her skin because she felt it would spark change, police said Tuesday.
“So maybe I am too idealistic, but I believe way deep inside me that we can make things better for everyone. I will be a catalyst. I will do what it takes. I will. Watch me,” read the July 18 posting, according to police.
Ah yes, the natural evolution of the Left. Rahm Emanuel is famous for saying never let a good crisis go to waste. Rogers takes that a step, or two farther, by faking a crisis that can then be exploited for “change”. Of course Rogers is not the first Lefty to go this route is she? There have been numerous “racist” incidents that have sparked outrage, that turned out to be fake. And, to be fair, maybe Rogers, and those other Leftist starter kits are just emulating the Sharpton model for self-starting race baiters. And, of course, we all know that many Leftists LOVE to feel like a victim don’t we? This is, in part, why the Democratic tactic of making everyone feel like a victim is so successful.
As I have noted before, if you understand the Left, understand this. When they see by any means necessary, they mean it!
Also, as long as we are talking about the phonies on the Left, let us touch on another manufactured crisis,
global warming, er climate change, whatever the Left is calling it this week. At The Other McCain, Stacy McCain notes that climate change zealots fake it too
For my money, the funniest thing in National Review editor Rich Lowry’s reply to global-warming guru Michael Mann is this:
Is it too much to ask that world-renowned climate scientists spend less time on Facebook?
Mann posted a number of enraged Facebook rants because his notorious “hockey stick” graph, projecting a sharp increase in global temperatures caused by CO2 emissions, was brutally mocked by Mark Steyn.
Mann is on the faculty of Penn State, which claimed to have conducted an “investigation” of scientific fraud in Mann’s climate-change studies. Is Mann therefore “the Jerry Sandusky of climate change”? It’s a fair question, said Steyn:
If an institution is prepared to cover up systemic statutory rape of minors, what won’t it cover up?
Since the 2009 release of the ClimateGate e-mails — remember “hide the decline”? — it has become obvious to most lay observers that Mann and his colleagues valued their hypothesis more than they valued facts. Among other things, the ClimateGate e-mails showed that caretakers of the global-warming “consensus” conspired to delegitimize their critics and exclude skeptics from the peer-review process.
