The tsunami of hate hoaxes that followed the earthquake of Trump’s election continues. Some are getting elaborate:
Police say a Volusia County [Florida] man faked a hate crime, set his ex-girlfriend’s car on fire and then staged his own abduction to throw off detectives.
Vincent Palmer, 27, told detectives he taped a note with racial slurs and the words “KKK” and “Trump” written on it to his ex-girlfriend’s mailbox early Saturday before throwing a brick through her car window and dousing the back seat in gasoline because they were having problems over the custody of their children, according to an arrest report.
From there, the hoax became even more preposterous:
The next morning, Daytona Beach police were called to a possible abduction after one of Palmer’s relatives found a bloody note saying, “You will never see your grandson again alive” and “KKK,” according to an arrest report.
But rather than in the sinister clutches of the KKK, police found Palmer hanging out at Burger King.
Police already had a warrant out for Palmer’s arrest on child-support charges apparently stemming from the same ill-fated interracial relationship. Following his confession regarding the hate hoax, he is in the can for arson.
Anyone with information regarding a bias crime linking Trump to the KKK that actually happened will get an eager reception from the mainstream media, which must be getting tired of trying to keep a narrative alive on a skimpy diet of hoaxes.
