Because there is so little factual information that supports liberal ideology, moonbats find it very difficult to let go of phony hate crimes, even after they have been debunked:
Students at the University of Delaware are taking it hard after the discovery that an alleged hate crime was just a misunderstanding. Some students even insist a hate crime still occurred.
The incident happened Tuesday night, when students thought they found several nooses hanging from a tree. Word quickly spread as campus officials swiftly released a statement condemning the foul hate crime. But come morning, police said a short investigation had led them to conclude the “nooses” were really just the remnants of paper lanterns from an event held all the way back in June.
Here’s how a hysterical error was escalated into a hoax:
Unperturbed by the truth, students launched an assembly following the incident to speak as though the hate crime really did happen. According to The News Journal, a local paper, the assembly was held “to find ways to change the campus climate” in the wake of the bad atmosphere apparently exposed by a fictional hate crime.
“We are here today because we’re not returning hate with hate,” Black Lives Matter protester Ayanna Gill said Wednesday, according to The News Journal. “But this is not the end.” It’s not clear what hate Gill was avoiding the return of, since no hate crime happened.
One administrator said the climate of hate at Delaware was exposed by the mere fact he could even believe the alleged hate crime occurred.
If you didn’t just burst out laughing, you might want to go back and read that last sentence again.
Squeaks UD Director of Government Relations Rick Deadwyler:
“The image and the idea that something like that was plausible on our campus was concerning.”
Is the hanging of nooses considered plausible because the University of Delaware has been infiltrated by the Ku Klux Klan? No. It is considered plausible because useless moonbat apparatchiks like Deadweightler keep lying that racists are everywhere, deviously conspiring to make blacks be offended.
As we have seen with the global warming hoax, progs never let a crisis go to waste, even after the crisis has been exposed as totally fake:
As a result, [UD Vice Provost for Diversity Carol] Henderson said, the college is planning to launch a new “diversity action plan” as soon as it’s approved by school officials.
College students, you have my sympathy.
