WAVE OF HATE-CRIME HOAXES STOKES PANIC IN PORTLAND

Jussie Smollett isn't alone in trying to fake a hate crime for personal or selfish reasons. Hate crime hoaxes happen more often than many well-meaning Americans probably realize, and often they're orchestrated as part of a trend intended to provoke hysteria and panic. Sometimes, innocent conservatives guilty of nothing more than living in the area where the "crimes" allegedly occurred are falsely accused of carrying out the attacks, and subjected to a storm of online threats and abuse. The political subtext of these false reports is easy to spot. Just like the Smollett case, they're intended to portray Trump supporters and conservatives as violent bigots and homophobes willing to indiscriminately target members of the trans and gay communities.

And according to an investigation by New York Post columnist Andy Ngo, Smollett isn't the only hate crime hoaxer to avoid punishment. In the Portland area alone, trans and LGBT activists have incited a panic with reports of attacks on LGBTQ individuals that, when investigated, were either never reported to police, or, in some cases, the details gathered by police differed dramatically from what was disclosed in viral social media posts, in such a way as to suggest that an attack never occurred.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, let us please engage, rather than enrage, people who might be at some level, just a little different from who we are, or think differently about a huge number of things.

Because at the end of the day, we're all humans, walking through this incredible experience called life, together. So in light of this, let's hold hands, rather than smack someone with them, and be a blessing to everyone around us.

We all should be lifting people up, rather than putting them down for petty reasons, because are all brothers and sisters in this journey.
