Another day, another fake “hate crime”

Site of staged "hate crime": Colorado Democratic Party headquarters

FOX News preempted Sean Hannity’s Friday show to continue its ongoing coverage of the death of Senator Ted Kennedy. However, late last week, Hannity aired a segment about a tiny but telling story that got lost in all the Camelot hagiography.

Hannity was joined by Culture of Corruption author Michelle Malkin to discuss a bizarre incident that was quickly labeled a “hate crime.” As Hannity reported:

Eleven windows were smashed at the Democratic Party headquarters in Denver, Colorado. Now immediately following that act of vandalism, the head of Colorado’s Democratic Party alleged that the damage was probably inflicted by an opponent of President Obama‘s health care plan.

But Maurice Schwenkler, the only person charged in the incident so far, is far from a conservative. In fact, he was at one time a paid operative of the Democratic Party and even went door-to-door for candidates.

Fake “hate crimes” are one of Malkin’s specialties, making her the ideal guest for this report. She detailed a depressingly large number of them — all perpetrated by leftists attempting to discredit the Right — in her 2005 bestseller, aptly titled Unhinged: Exposing Liberals Gone Wild.

And unlike the Average Joes & Janes who peacefully protest against “Obamacare” at town hall meetings, these left wing troublemakers are usually anything but ordinary. As one of Malkin’s blog sources in Colorado uncovered, “Maurice” Schwenkler is “a transgendered ‘Denver-based anarchist’ who goes by the name ‘Ariel Attack'” and belongs to something called “a bicycle collective.”

In November 2008, Schwenkler even received $500 to campaign door-to-door for Democrat Mollie Cullom — money paid by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) front group, the Colorado Citizens Coalition.

I dunno: when I was an anarchist, we didn’t believe in, you know, elections. Or money, for that matter. Kids these days!

One reason I left the Left was my growing awareness that most of our motivational myths were exaggerations, if not outright lies: “Roe” of Roe v. Wade hadn’t been raped after all; no one died at Three Mile Island; “progressive” Cuba was a racist, homophobic hellhole; the Kennedys were assassinated by leftists, not “right wingers”; Alger Hiss was guilty, and so were the Rosenbergs and Sacco & Vanzetti

If our cause is so righteous, I mused, why do we have to invent martyrs and fudge our facts? I never got more than a smirk for an answer. I guess the truth is: as long as a complicit mainstream media refuses to expose these fake “hate crimes” for what they really are, the tactic of lying continues to “work” for the Left.

In other words, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it — or better yet: break it yourself.

    All forms of anarchy have evolved similarly and it is time the freedom of the press retain that freedom, objectively.

    Without it, we succumb!

    Good article. The first of many to come I am sure on this subject.
    There will be more exposers as they get more arragant. Its just human nature.
    The very thing that they can’t understand.
    People are not born good or even tabula rasa, as any real parent knows.
    folks where meant to be individuals in a community, not a collective that has individuals.
    The lefts coinage. Division & deception topped in lies with no moral or ethical reality.

    That is an outstanding post and I hope it draws a lot of attention.

    Along the same lines: “Why let the facts get in the way of a good story/scam”?

    my union, the ILWU, is riven with commie rat bastards, and the black members continually cry racism. 2 of them planted a perfectly-tied hangman’s noose in our workplace at Golden Gate Bridge Ferry Terminal in Marin county, Calif., which I found before anyone else did, in a place where they were the only occupiers for the workshift before mine. These rats were trying to get me slammed as a racist, though I was their Shop Steward.
    In a parking lot of a nearby university a leftist teacher was filmed trashing her own car with “Ni****” and swastikas. A minority San Francisco fireman planted a swastika in the workplace, and our leftist mayor called in the FBI to trash every white firefighter in the stationhouse.There’s lots more. Every time a “hate crime” turns up, suspect nearby racist-activists, like San Francisco’s own Van Jones, now a Washington-paid racist-in-chief.

      Mike, you have serious problen in the area: the radical hotbed of America.

    The Sacco & Vanzetti case is particularly galling to me. Back in the early 1970s in my high school history class, this was a big deal as I and most of my classmates are Italian. When I eventually learned who these two were, I became very angry at how we were lied to in school. This enlightenment helped me in understanding the methods of indoctrination perpetrated on our children.

    Have you ever noticed that the true racist is the first person who screams, “Racist.”

      All too often, lately.

      Except when the person who’s being called a racist is ACTUALLY BEING RACIST. If someone’s going on a rant about how black people are genetically inferior to white people then I’m going to call them a racist and confront their bigotry.

      Don’t let the Left’s hijacking of the term “racist” for their own purposes discourage us from pointing out the real racists (which will be found at both the extremes of Right and Left.)

        Under those circumstances, I agree, but to interject race issues while discussing other issues amiclly is a tactic that solves nothing. It is in that context I make my point.

          Very good. Remind me to tell you sometime the story of when I got to confront such a person. One doesn’t want to tell the husband (me) of a bi-racial woman that blacks are genetically inferior to whites, especially when one is a guest in their home.

            I have a few stories, my wife was from Spain and I moved her with me to a small farming village so you can imagine how that might have turned out, but it never became a factor because it has no real relevence to who you are or who she is, does it?

            It is a matter of respect earned by caring for other’s rights to exist harmoniously. See, you’ve got me preaching, but it worked for me.
