Whenever a person of privileged pigmentation or perversity claims to have been threatened or oppressed in some way, it is safe to assume that the incident is either grossly misrepresented or a complete hoax — probably the latter if it is alleged to have occurred on one of our moonbattery-infested college campuses:
A threatening message posted to a student’s Facebook page — initially thought [or rather, implausibly claimed] to be the work of hackers — was actually written by the student himself, University of Chicago officials said Monday.
“It became clear that nobody broke into the Facebook account in question, and that in fact the posting was not the anonymous threat against a student that it first appeared to be,” according to a statement from the university.
The message was posted Nov. 18 and contained racial slurs and threats of sexual violence.
It prompted university officials to initiate an investigation with the help of federal law enforcement agencies and third-party website providers to determine who was behind the post.
No one will be surprised that officials literally made a federal case out this, in hopes that it was not yet another hoax. But these hopes were quickly dashed.
According to a person with knowledge of the incident, it appears the student’s fake message was a misguided attempt to draw attention to the issues of race and sexual abuse.
Student activist Vincente Perez told the school’s newspaper, the Chicago Maroon: “Someone felt they had to show something extreme to get people to care. Think about that. This is not a justification. But think about what the weight of apathy can force people to do.”
As Bugs Bunny might say, “What a maroon.”
Think about this, Vince: If privileged minority groups really were oppressed, there would be no need to combat apathy by fabricating incidents of supposed oppression.
As for the consequences for the hoaxer,
A university spokesperson refused to comment on any disciplinary action that may be taken against the student who posted the Facebook message.
That means that as usual there will be no consequences. Otherwise these hoaxes wouldn’t happen so frequently. The important thing from the perspective of liberal educrats is that the hoaxer meant well — i.e., is a moonbat.
