The hate hoax moonbattery running rampant in academia has been spilling out into surrounding communities, as in the case of Mari Poindexter:
After publicly sharing the details of an alleged attack motivated by her sexual orientation in August, a Central Michigan University instructor was sentenced last month for filing a false police report regarding the assault.
While attending a Toby Keith concert at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort on Aug. 19, a man imposed on Mari Poindexter and her family’s personal space then spewed bigoted slurs at Poindexter, including calling her a “cross-dressing fag,” Poindexter told the Morning Sun in August.
Later that night Poindexter said that same man attacked her in the parking lot of the Cabin Bar, punching her in the eye and spitting on her.
Poindexter, who is noisily lesbian, broadcast her tale on social media.
Her message went viral; it garnered thousands of shares and messages of support, media coverage in the Morning Sun and other news outlets and a public statement of support from CMU.
No doubt the incident would be a big help regarding future promotions — except that like virtually all “hate crimes” against privileged groups, it was a hoax, as police have confirmed:
“(Poindexter said) she made the story up about being assaulted by a male subject at the bar and punched herself in the eye because she wanted to raise awareness about the social hardships of people in the LGBTQ+ community,” read a police statement in the court records.
Poindexter pleaded guilty Jan. 14 to two misdemeanor counts of filing a false police report. She was sentenced Feb. 25 to pay $225 in fines and serve six months of non-reporting probation.
Other conditions of Poindexter’s sentencing calls for her to “take meds as prescribed” and continue counseling.
If only the latter part of this sentence could be applied more widely throughout the LGBTQ+ community.
Poindexter has taken a leave of absence from CMU, “because of the state of her mental health.”
In addition to punishment, there is reward. Mari Poindexter has earned a position on the Hate Hoax List.
