Last month Andrew King of Schenectady, New York fell victim to a shocking hate crime. Someone spray-painted swastikas on his house:
The vandalism comes just before King observes the Sabbath, which lasts 25 hours. During that time, no work is allowed to be done so he cannot remove the swastikas for at least the next day or so. However, King says he’s considering leaving them up longer to show people what is happening in this community and hopefully spur a conversation about tolerance.
The incident fit nicely into the liberal narrative:
If a new study on Twitter use is any indication, White Nationalist groups and neo-Nazi groups are on the rise.
By now it was easy to see this coming:
A Schenectady man who claimed someone spray-painted swastikas on his Chiswell Road home last month, did it himself.
That’s according to Schenectady police. They’ve now arrested 54-year-old Andrew King and charged him with falsely reporting an incident.
King gets no points for originality. But he does get to join the Hate Hoax List.
