Old White Joe Biden and many others have assured us repeatedly that “white supremacists” constitute the bigger terror threat to Americans today, and they wouldn’t lie to us, would they? The only thing they lack to complete the picture are actual white supremacist terrorists. And while it may not rise to the level of suicide bombings or the droning of innocent families, it was indeed terrifying when racist graffiti was found at two St. Louis-area high schools: Parkway Central in Chesterfield and Parkway North in St. Louis itself.
The graffiti was found in the boys’ bathroom at Parkway Central Wednesday, and the same things were scrawled on a bathroom wall at Parkway North: “HOPE ALL BLACK PEOPLE DIE” and “N****R.”
The next morning at Parkway Central, according to St. Louis’ KMOV, “over a thousand students and staff walked out of Parkway Central High Schools in solidarity… Parkway Central students, staff and teachers walked out during class to stand in solidarity and asking the administration for change.”
At the protest, the horror was palpable. One student remarked: “I’m sitting in that building, shaking in fear because I don’t know what’s going to happen to me because of my skin tone. We need change in this building and we don’t need it then, we need it now.” … Another student claimed that it was just another day at the racist cauldron known as Parkway Central: … A third student noted her shame at having to attend what she depicted as essentially a KKK feeder school …
At the protest, according to the Daily Mail, “students were captured cursing at school administrators, shedding tears and chanting into bullhorns at the protest.” …

Parkway Schools Superintendent Dr. Keith Marty sent his own letter to parents, assuring them “there will be no tolerance for hate speech and students found responsible will receive severe disciplinary consequences and referral to law enforcement.” As anxious as McCarthy had been to affirm his progressive bona fides, Marty reminded them: “Racism is wrong. Racism, hate speech and racist behavior causes everlasting harm and degrades Parkway students and staff. Racism undermines our mission, commitments, tradition, reputation, character principles and the moral fabric and core values of our outstanding school district and community.” …
On Tuesday, a black student admitted to having scrawled the graffiti at both schools.
Uh oh, the cult regroups:
Marty wrote to parents again, telling them this and saying that he was nevertheless “proud” of the students who protested, for “proactively [leading] walkouts.” …
It was as if a newspaper in 1938 responded to the hysteria that followed Orson Welles’ “War of the Worlds” broadcast by assuring readers that the risk of an invasion by space aliens was very real, and that the people who panicked were entirely reasonable. …
If any Parkway Schools official had any spine and could see things clearly amid the prevailing fog of Leftist misinformation and disinformation, he or she would have told parents and students that the incident showed one thing above all: that victimhood is currency today, and the more one has of it, the richer one is. But actual racist incidents are so few and far between that they must be fabricated.
Again and again, we see the same response to fake hate from America’s hyper-progressive enclaves. This attack or abuse might not have been actually real, they say, but the incident speaks to a deeper, almost religious belief that racism lurks everywhere and itches to get out. It’s a form of moral theater in which participants must willingly suspend their disbelief.
The awkward truth is that in modern America, as in other parts of the developed world, the demand for ‘acts of racism’ greatly exceeds the supply. So people have to manufacture their own.
Amen, or whatever it is the wokies say.
