More evidence accrues that America is a hotbed of racism, Islamophobia, xenophobia, and intolerance. Like the rest of the evidence, it is fake:
Orangeburg County [South Carolina] Sheriff’s Department investigators have determined that claims of a hate crime committed against a Cordova family “had been fabricated.”
Last week the family said their vehicles and home had been vandalized by two men in a pickup truck flying a Confederate and American flags.
Once again we see that if it fits the liberal narrative too perfectly to be true, that’s because it is not true.
The family also said one family member received threatening text messages supposedly because she was married to a man who is from India and was assumed to be Muslim.
“The text message on Thursday was from the ‘Council of Patriots,’” George Daniels [father-in-law of the Indian] described the messages to a family member. “They said she was a jihad loving [expletive] and all this stuff.”
It’s easy to imagine moonbats spitting bits of arugula across the dinner table as they fume, “Council of Patriots! You see what they mean about patriotism being the last refuge of scoundrels? It must be stamped out at once.”
However, the local Sheriff’s Office has this to say:
Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said an exhaustive investigation into claims several individuals displaying a Confederate flag while smashing the victim’s windows are false.
“My detectives conducted an unbiased, thorough investigation into the allegations someone had committed these crimes against this individual,” the sheriff said. “What we found was this individual had made the entire story up.”
The man, 41, who is currently residing at a Cordova residence, told relatives someone had thrown bricks through the man’s residence window as well as smashed windows on the man’s vehicle. Those relatives, in turn, filed a report with the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office on Nov. 21.
“I immediately had an investigator assigned to establish the man’s story and to pursue any and all suspects involved,” Ravenell said. “However, the suspects, the texts messages – all fabricated.”
No charges were filed, on the grounds that the anonymous liar who made up the hate crime wasn’t the one who reported it. Too bad the coward would not give his name; he could have been immortalized on the Hate Hoax List.
