Richard Kennedy Presents Still More Phony Homophobia

Driven by an insatiable demand for scarce real world evidence to prop up liberal ideology, the hate hoax industry continues to boom:

A student from Blackpool [England] who claimed he was savagely beaten in an alleged homophobic attack has admitted causing the injuries himself. Richard Kennedy became an internet sensation after 182,000 people shared photos of his injuries that he had posted on Facebook. …

A caption on Kennedy’s images read: “An example [of] why homophobia is wrong and it’s disgusting that it’s still around in 2014”.

Kennedy posted graphic images of his injuries, including his face bloodied and bruised, teeth missing from his mouth and his knees badly wounded.

He didn’t limit his tall tale to Facebook friends.

MailOnline reports that he told police that he had been set upon by a gang of homophobes when he left a gay club in Preston, prompting officers to launch an investigation and appeal for information on the perpetrators.

In his Facebook post, Kennedy spoke of being kicked to the ground and told of how “stupid” he was to walk home on his own. He wrote: “Here is my face after a homophobic attack: four of my teeth are gone, not fallen out but deep inside my gums and cheek… my face is swollen, both my knees are badly injured and I struggle to walk.

“My whole face is constantly throbbing and I’m now on four tablets a day for pain and infection and may require surgery to sort out the damage.

“All of this and what was their motive? Because of my f****** sexuality.”

He even told a local newspaper that he heard a group of men shouting homophobic abuse at him.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise:

But now he admits he made it all up. After being shown CCTV footage of himself falling over onto the pavement, Kennedy accepted the attack never happened. Lancashire Police have also confirmed that CCTV footage showed Kennedy had never been attacked.

Typically, the little darling will face no consequences for his illegal behavior.

Detective Inspector Paddy O’Neill said that Kennedy won’t be prosecuted for wasting police time: “We managed to recover some CCTV footage which shows the injured party falling face-first onto the pavement. We have showed him the CCTV and he now accepts his injuries were caused during the fall.

“Having had oversight of the investigation… I accept his report was made in good faith.”

That is to say, Kennedy filed a false police report and used Fakebook to broadcast deliberately inflammatory lies, but it was “in good faith” because he meant well. He was trying to advance official establishment dogma, according to which members of privileged groups are somehow “oppressed.”

    So it was in “good faith” because he was trying to highlight issues of homophobia that don’t actually exist.
    So now it’s okay to lie to the police as long as you’re pushing the correct political agenda, What a corrupt World we live in!

  • KHarn

    This is why we were taught the story of “the boy who cried wolf” in the old days. As in the story, the authorities should IGNORE all such complaints, or at least give them the lowest priority.

  • Jester

    I wonder if our Government-Media Complex pays these people under the table… “follow the money”, they always say…

  • Agrippa

    His false, fake, phony report was made “in good faith?” How the hell is that true? As KHarn notes, better watch out if you “cry wolf!” Next time, when your boyfriend beats the living shit out of you, ain’t nobody going to believe a word you say, you PoS!

  • Agrippa

    Meant to ask: Hey, little Dickie! Exactly how did you get those wounds to the face? Fall down on the pavement drunk? Pushed by your boyfriend during an argument? Just a trip-and-fall? No explanation necessary to the “police,” it appears — you’re free to file false reports anytime you want.

    I don’t understand why it’s a worse crime to beat someone up because you don’t like their sexuality than it is to beat someone up just because you perceive them to be weak, because you’re drunk, because you want their money, etc.

    Even if he was really attacked, it wouldn’t be an example of why homophobia is wrong anymore than a drunk beating up an old lady for her purse would be an example of why money or alcohol is wrong. The thing that is wrong isn’t the excuse they used to justify attacking them, but the violent attack itself (if it did happen).

    Imagine if a person who enjoyed defecating on their partner during sex got beat up. Would that be a reason why it’s wrong for people to believe such acts are disgusting? Of course not. People should be free to find crapping on others disgusting, even if it doesn’t hurt anyone (other than the people doing it), just like they should be free to find it gross for a dude to stick his member in an anal cavity, or two women rubbing their tuna bilges together.

  • Carrie

    I really do wonder what would happen to a straight person that made up a story about how they were attacked by homosexuals. Would they be treated as leniently?

  • Mojo

    Sounds like somebody’s got a freebie coming.

  • HigherCalling

    If you’re gonna perpetrate a hoax, go all out.

    I’m tending to feel more homophobic every time I hear of this stuff.

  • Tchhht!!!

    Maybe little Dork was engaging in some BDSM activities when his dominator got rough and busted his lip on the bedpost. Too bad kid. Next time wear a football helmet. That’ll even add to the thrill. Hey, maybe even one of those iron maiden masks with the spikes in it. Oooooooohhh!!!

  • MJRAWL

    All the idiots that fell for this are the stupid ones.

  • 762×51

    I know this happened in England but it has and does happen here in the U. S. ALL the time.

    I wonder what would happen if a white guy took one of these false complaints that just disappeared and changed the words so that instead of homophobes for example, it read blacks. The false claim would be that blacks had attacked him because he is white. (I know that happens every day in America and NEVER gets reported or taken seriously al la the Knockout Game).

    Then file the false claim, let it get some traction and then expose it as false just to see if whites get prosecuted. Any guess what would happen?

  • timmy

    Once again, I am certain the fag could have easily found any number of folk that would have been more than willing to assist him with much better and convincing results.
