Hate crime hoaxers should be prosecuted, by Ashe Schow.
The excuse that one merely wanted to “start a dialogue” is unacceptable. The damage that hoaxers are doing to real victims is incalculable. It’s impossible now to view an accusation of a hate crime and think it won’t be proven a hoax because there aren’t modern examples of real hate crimes that get the attention of the hoaxes.
Whether it’s a race hoax, a gay hate-crime hoax or a rape hoax, allowing people to get away with lies sends the message that it’s okay. It’s not.
Lefties think they will get away with — because they do — so they keep on doing it. See There Have Been Over 100 Hate Crime Hoaxes In The Past Decade.
