At first, the story of Julian Kinzel of Germany’s Left Party (Die Linke, a.k.a. Linkspartei) was enough to make you weep for the plight of oppressed evidently homosexual left-wing activists. Tagesspiegel reported that the 18-year-old Schwerin district board member was the victim of a knife attack in Wismar. Three perpetrators allegedly beat him up, stabbed him 17 times, and worse yet called him a “communist faggot.” This appellation and the clothing of the perpetrators pointed the finger at right-wing extremists, according to District Chairman Peter Brill.
But questions arose as to why Kinzel waited until the next day and then filed his complaint via the Internet rather than at a police station, and why the hospital that treated him did not report the case to the police.
A few days later came unsurprising follow-up, under the headline, “Politicians of the Left Apparently Invented Knife Attack”:
Unidentified criminals from the Nazi scene were supposed to have stabbed a Left politician with a knife — but apparently the young man just invented the attack. The public prosecutor’s office investigated for faking a crime.
Kinzel’s wounds were evidently self-inflicted.
Looks like the hate hoax phenomenon has gone international. Please welcome Julian Kinzel to the Hate Hoax List.
