CAIR Amplifies Islamic Hate Hoax

Given what they stoop to in order to generate propaganda for their fellow travelers to run with — including torturing and murdering children and their parents in front of each other, as in the October 7 operation — it should surprise no one that jihadists utilize the hate hoax stratagem.

This is sure to yank on heartstrings:

Nasty Jews! Now for the rest of the story:

Authorities in North Ridgeville, Ohio, arrested 20-year-old Hesham A. Ayyad on Tuesday and charged him for allegedly faking a hate crime attack last month.

According to, On Oct. 22 Ayyad told the Cleveland chapter of the Islamic Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that he was assaulted by someone in an SUV making “anti-Palestinian slurs.” However, investigators found his injuries were the result of a fight with his brother.

Not that CAIR would care. It exists to crybully and generate propaganda to advance the spread of Islamic domination.

On Oct. 23, CAIR issued a press release on the incident that said Ayyad was the victim of a “reported hit and run,” and said that “he was walking home from eating lunch when a car slowed down and rolled down the window. The driver of the car allegedly started yelling at him using anti-Palestinian statements like “Kill all Palestinians,” and “Long live Israel,” as he swerved his car to intimidate the victim. The driver then allegedly turned around and hit the man while shouting “DIE!”

If it’s too over the top to be true, that’s probably because it isn’t true — especially if the alleged victim is a member of a preferred victim group.

Hesham A. Ayyad and his brother Khalil A. Ayyad, 19, were both arrested on Tuesday. Hesham was charged with making false alarms, falsification, obstructing official business, domestic violence, and assault. Khalil was charged with domestic violence and assault.

After the truth came to light, CAIR propagandists profusely apologized and pulled the tweet you see above. Or maybe they didn’t.

Blacks Run Over 2-Year-Old, Blame Whites

Hate hoaxes are applied not only to drive an otherwise unsupportable narrative, but also to evade personal responsibility. From Texas:

Shelby Martinez, 30, was arrested on Saturday at her apartment complex where her son was injured and has been charged with making false statements to police, according to KFDX Wichita Falls.

Authorities say Martinez and the boy’s father, Thomas Gates, tried to cover up how their child received life-threatening injuries.

Their two-year-old son was allegedly run over by Gates when he was backing out with his vehicle, but the couple blamed it on an “unknown white couple,” according to police. Martinez and Gates are both black.

Blaming their own behavior and its consequences on Caucasians is not working out as well for Martinez and Gates as it does on the macro level. But at least the implied racial animus earns them a spot on the Hate Hoax List.

Chainsaw Buoy Hate Hoax

Texas has impeded Biden’s objective of displacing the American population with a gargantuan influx of illegal immigration from the Third World. But the Regime does not accept resistance passively. Texas defends the border with razor wire; the federal government cuts the wire to let invaders through. Texas places buoys in the Rio Grande to prevent illegal crossings; Democrats respond with a lawsuit and a hate hoax:

Nothing pulls on the heartstrings like white supremacists using chainsaw buoys to hack apart put-upon immigrants who only want to achieve a better life through intergenerational careers of voting for Democrats for a living.

Once again, their lies fail to pass the laugh test. Here’s what former US Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott has to say about the buoys:

“When I was Chief, USBP tested numerous variations of buoy barrier features to include what some are calling a ‘saw’ blade,” Scott said. “It is actually called a passive radial disc. It is an anti-climb deterrent and was tested by USBP in 2020 and determined to be passive and make climbers uncomfortable but would not break skin or injure a person.”

We would be well within our rights to defend the border with mines and machine guns. However,

“During testing, USBP personnel jumped on top of it from different platforms without issue. The teeth were designed to avoid injuring illegal aliens,” Scott said.

Liberals dishonestly blame the buoys for dead illegal aliens continuing to turn up in the river as they have for decades. If there were any serious indication that a drug trafficker, child sex slave trafficker, welfare colonist, or anyone else was killed by the buoys, believe me we would know about it.

Please welcome Democrat congresscritter Joaquin Castro to the Hate Hoax List.

Country Fans Hit With Evident Hate Hoax

Jason Aldean has taken a stand for community cohesion and basic decency. In response, the liberal establishment has been trying to destroy him. Ultra-woke CMT canceled his hit song “Try That in a Small Town,” which cultural gatekeepers denounced as racist because it sides with regular Americans against BLM/Antifa rioters. The media’s specialty is characterizing villains as heroes and vice versa on behalf of the leftist agenda, but Aldean is not an easy case, because no well-meaning person could oppose his viewpoint. One propagandist became so desperate to discredit his fan base that even as the country guffawed at Carlee Russell, she pulled off what looks like a hate hoax.

From Wisconsin:

A TMJ4 reporter was “left humiliated” while reporting from Country Thunder’s opening night in Twin Lakes Thursday after being yelled at and subjected to a racist slur.

Uncoincidentally, Jason Aldean played “Try That in a Small Town” at the Country Thunder festival, though not that same night.

Taylor Lumpkin, a Black multimedia journalist for WTMJ-TV (Channel 4) since 2020, tweeted Thursday night that “a guy ran up and yelled at me (unprovoked), and called me a N***** twice. No one helped. Everyone stared at me, and laughed.

“Do better people,” the tweet said.

The aptly named Lumpkin proved herself a true modern journalist by making herself the story. Her tweet has racked up 1.3 million views.

Naturally liberals are fawning self-righteously over how oppressed she is. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel squawks piously about the “core commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion” that likely put her in her job. She ought to set up a GoFundMe page.

Have a bucket handy as you brace for her follow-up:

Please. With apologies to talented black journalists who deserve their positions, everyone with access to a television who knows that blacks make up only 13% of the population also knows that the Powers That Be bend over backward to place them in front of cameras. Being a left-wing Woman of Color obviates the need for other qualifications, as Kamala Harris and Ketanji Brown Jackson comically confirm.

The improbable incident may earn Lumpkin a promotion, but it also earns her a spot on the Hate Hoax List.

Carlee Russell Joins Hate Hoax List

Thanks to the eager gullibility of the liberal media, a hate hoax doesn’t have to pass the laugh test to fly — at least for a little while. Consider Carlee Russell:

She went missing on July 13 for two days, after what was revealed by police as a calm phone call to 911, about an unaccompanied male toddler on the side of the I-459 interstate. …

At 9.34pm, over an hour after she departed from work, footage shows her slowing down while flashing her hazards near the 11 mile marker on the interstate.

She then called 911 and told them there was ‘a male toddler wearing a diaper’ walking on the side of the interstate.

She proceeded to call her brother’s girlfriend who heard Ms Russell ask the ‘toddler’: ‘Are you okay?’, shortly after she screamed before the phone call ended.

Just like that, Miss Russell vanished. When she reappeared, she claimed to have been kidnapped:

In an interview with Hoover police, she said a man with orange hair came from the trees to check on the crying toddler, but then grabbed her, dragged her over the fence and into a car.

All white people are racist and bad, but those gingers are the worst.

No one else saw the toddler strolling for 600 yards along the busy interstate because evidently there was no toddler. Media hype could not keep the hoax from disintegrating. She appears to have lifted the plot for it from the movie Taken, which she had googled along with “amber alert,” “one way bus ticket from Birmingham to Nashville,” and “how to take money from a register without being caught” shortly before attempting to pull it off. Allegedly, she stole materials from her job at the Woodhouse Spa in Birmingham.

Carlee has clammed up around the police. Lawyers would approve, since she might be charged with theft, lying to authorities, and filing a false police report.

Fortunately, there was no specific victim of her hoax. However, we can’t rule out that if some red-headed guy had been picked up by police, she would have been willing to point a finger. Innocent people have their lives destroyed by hate hoaxes, as Duke lacrosse players can confirm. Deuteronomy 19:16–19 comes to mind:

If a malicious witness rises up against a man to accuse him of wrongdoing, then both the men who have the dispute shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges who will be in office in those days. The judges shall investigate thoroughly, and if the witness is a false witness and he has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him just as he had intended to do to his brother. Thus you shall purge the evil from among you.

Something to be considered for future hoaxes. In the meantime, let’s hear Miss Smollett’s I mean Miss Russell’s side of the story (LANGUAGE ALERT):

New York Cop Emily Hirshowitz Arrested for Hoaxing

Members of preferred identity groups allegedly face hostile work environments. For example, male police officers may show resentment that less qualified people are hired to reward them for being female. That might have seemed to be the dynamic regarding the ostracization of Emily Hirshowitz. But the hoax fell through:

A New York police officer who complained for months about receiving menacing text messages from her colleagues was arrested after investigators alleged she’d been the one sending them all along.

Emily Hirshowitz, 36, of the Ossining Police Department, was charged at the Westchester District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday with four counts of third-degree falsely reporting an incident, along with three counts of first-degree filing a false instrument.

She reported threatening text messages from several numbers, and claimed that “a fellow police officer or multiple police officers at my department are involved.”

When the hoax got out of hand, Hirshowitz tried to drop the complaint. Too late; the investigation continued:

Prosecutors said the evidence quickly indicated she was in charge of several of the phone numbers that the menacing messages had come from, and that she’d likely sent them to herself.

A former cop forced to resign over separate disciplinary charges appears to have been her accomplice. Most likely, the objective was to portray her as put upon by sexists and collect some jackpot justice. If being a black woman who was fired for being late 47 times is worth $11.25 million in nearby New York City, even a white woman ought to be able to collect seven figures for having been called “useless” by male chauvinists.

Looks like she won’t be cashing in, but at least she helped raise awareness. Maybe the Ossining PD will mandate sensitivity training, as often happens in colleges even after hate hoaxes have been exposed.

Gay Hate Hoax Following Attack on Pregnant Woman

Hate hoaxes can be helpful when gays want to explain their injuries and attract sympathy after beating pregnant women leads to them getting set on fire — as recently happened in San Diego.

On June 12, officers arrived at a crime scene to find a pregnant woman bleeding and injured and the assailant having fled. Soon afterward, they received a report of someone claiming to have been set on fire. Turns out it was the assailant. Security video confirms the pregnant woman used fire to defend herself from him in response to a physical assault.

KGTV-TV’s initial report about the gay man’s claim that he was set on fire in a hate-crime attack paints a decidedly different picture than what police are now maintaining.

Scott Rowin, 39, said he was on his way home from asking about a job at a gay bar.

KGTV said within a few blocks he heard what sounded like two people yelling gay slurs: “Started hearing [gay slur] this, [gay slur] that. The word came up quite a bit.”

Then they came up and set him on fire. No word on whether they were wearing MAGA hats like Jussie Smollett’s assailants.

Rowin added to KGTV that the slurs carried extra weight due to Pride events this month.

“This is absolutely a hate crime,” he declared to the station. “The slurs were hate-filled.”

The Injustice Department will be happy to investigate this right-wing conspiracy:

Rowin also noted to KGTV that “nobody walks around with flammable liquid … without an agenda. In my opinion, they were obliviously out there targeting the LGBT community.”

Even if his hate hoax went up in smoke, at least it helped raise awareness of his imaginary oppression.

Providence Missionary Baptist Church Hate Hoax

Looks like authorities have not yet managed to stamp out racism/homophobia/fascism/et cetera even in the bastion of liberalism some call the San Francisco of the South. Look what someone did not merely to a house of worship but to a Historic Black Church, the Providence Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta:

According to 11 Alive, the front of the church was tagged with several messages including “devil worship 666,” “apostate,” “Satan,” “sin,” and at least one homophobic message. The main doors had a backward swastika and imagery of a hanging painted on them.

It didn’t take long to track down the apparent culprit. James McIntyre had been removed from the property for trespassing the previous Sunday. He was found sitting across the street from the crime, easily identifiable by the MAGA cap he wore balanced atop his KKK hood.

Just kidding. McIntyre is of course black. Otherwise this story would have been national news.


Reverend Doctor Gerald Durley, the church’s former pastor, told Channel 2 Action News that he hopes those responsible will be prosecuted under hate crime laws.

That way McIntyre might actually be punished — if they can find him. He was released the following day.

Despite failing to fit it, the story was shoehorned into the Narrative:

In response to a TikTok video posted of local news coverage of the vandalism, in which a photo of McIntyre was not shown, some users appeared to presume that the suspect was white.

“I have been to that church in the pass [sic] for black political conference, still have pictures. White Racism and WP is mother nature’s worst mistake,” wrote one TikTok user.

Not everyone is as wise to the ways of the world as readers. Those steeped in liberal propaganda will assume that any attack on a black church was likely committed by mythical white racists, even if this rarely if ever happens in real life. By deleting McIntyre’s race from the story, the media told a deliberate lie that could be used to inflame racial tensions on behalf of the woke agenda.

The vandal’s motives are unknown and likely too psychotic to make sense of, but media propagandists who spun this as a racial incident while suppressing his race belong on the Hate Hoax List.

Watch Jussie Smollett Hate Hoax Reenacted

Coconspirators in the most famous hate hoax since the one that launched Al Sharpton’s career have come forward to confirm that like his Democrat backers, Jussie Smollett is a fraud:

Early in the morning hours of a polar vortex in January 2019, FOX’s “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett claimed two White supremacist Trump supporters attacked him near his Chicago apartment in a racially-motivated hate crime that would soon incite outrage from activists and the media. …

Smollett alleged the “White supremacists” … threw chemicals on him and put a noose around his neck, while shouting racially and homophobically-charged slurs and telling him he was in “MAGA country.”

Despite the credulity of the liberal establishment, the staged hate crime flunked the laugh test so dramatically that Smollett was convicted on five felony counts of disorderly conduct.

Brothers Abimbola “Bola” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo, Smollett’s accomplices in the act, finally broke their silence to the media about the hoax for the first time in an interview now streaming on Fox Nation.

Watch and laugh as the Nigerian brothers explain how they subjected Smollett to a noogie, which is probably as close as this privileged yet whiny Gay Person of Color ever came to being oppressed:

MIT Anti-Free Speech Hate Hoax

Hate hoaxes are good for more than garnering the sympathy of fools. They can also be used to shut down free speech, as with flyers blaspheming against sacred sexual deviants that were found on the campus of Massachusetts Institute of Technology:

The incident came in the wake of a two-month-old MIT faculty resolution that defends freedom of speech and expression — even speech some find “offensive or injurious.”

Even some college professors are getting fed up with the climate of fear that prevents the free exchange of ideas.

A report released in mid-January by the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression … found that “Large portions of MIT faculty and students are afraid to express their views in various academic settings. Faculty and students are at least as afraid of each other as they are of the administration.”

Educrats being overwhelmingly left-wing, they are rarely fans of free speech, because dissident speech constitutes a challenge to their hegemony. Yet MIT appears to be moving in the right direction — infuriating moonbats.

A Feb. 23 memo from MIT administrators stated flyers posted across campus and some chalking outside a school entrance “contained slurs directly targeting the LBGTQ+ community.”

MIT’s bias response team investigated, the memo added, and determined “the messages were put up by students choosing to use extreme speech to call attention to and protest what they see as the implications of” several new pro-free speech policies and efforts at the school.

That is to say, like the ideology the students were trying to defend from free speech, the flyers are a lie.

Peter Bonilla, executive director of the MIT Free Speech Alliance, said he couldn’t say for sure whether the students who posted the messages are left-leaning progressives, but added “whatever the content of the messages, whatever was being said, the point they seem to be making was that they should not have the right to say it.”

I’ll go out on a limb and say of course they were left-leaning progressives — and of course they belong on the Hate Hoax List.

Media Pushes Phony Chick-fil-A Racial Slur

Chick-fil-A is associated with Christians and therefore hated by liberals. Despite appalling efforts to pander to moonbats, Chick-fil-A has never been able to win them over, because their ideology requires outsiders to target, demonize, and focus hatred upon, and Chick-fil-A has been cast in that role. At last they have actual evidence of the ultimate thoughtcrime — antiblack racism — to hang around Chick-fil-A’s neck. A low-level employee accidently misspelled a customer’s name as “Niger,” which is only one letter away from the blasphemy beyond all other blasphemies, the untypable N-word:

A Charlotte family is taking legal action against Chick-Fil-A after an employee put a racial slur on their receipt.

An incident like this should be worth $millions. It could take whole weeks of high living to flush all the jackpot justice loot down the toilet.

“I was just in shock. I literally parked right there, I couldn’t eat the food,” said Nyiashia Jackson as she looked over to the Chick-fil-A parking lot.

The 19-year-old was appalled by what she found when she picked up her food. The name on that receipt wasn’t Nyiashia’s. It was the “N-word” spelled with one G.

The N-word spelled with one G is “Niger,” an African country with a population of over 23 million. In the video accompanying the WCCB Charlotte story, as in other news reports, this word is blurred, lest it offend.

In its desperate effort to find some evidence to prop up its absurd ideology, the media has plunged headlong into self-parody.

Chick-fil-A is characteristically groveling obsequiously over the harmless error. Its apologies are not accepted by Nyiashia’s mother April, who wants not only money but for the employee to be fired. It must not have occurred to her that the employee might be black.

White Power Graffiti in Idaho Is Hate Hoax

It isn’t easy to find the white supremacism that liberals claim is endemic. Let’s try Idaho:

The words “White Power” were found spray-painted on the side of Caldwell High School last Thursday, two days after the high school held a “Brown Pride” protest, the Idaho Statesman reported. The Tuesday protest was held in support of a student who was told to remove a hooded sweatshirt reading “Brown Pride” because other people reportedly found it “racist,” the outlet reported.

According to Caldwell High School Principal Anita Wilson, the “Brown Pride” shirt was forbidden not because it was thoughtcrime like a “White Pride” shirt would be, but because “Caldwell has had a gang problem before, and ‘Brown Pride’ is associated with gangs.”

Despite the likelihood that it was a hate hoax, authorities could be counted on to clutch their pearls theatrically over the “White Power” graffiti. Caldwell Chief of Police Rex Ingram proclaimed that “we will not tolerate hate in our city.”

Anyone with a clue knew how this would end:

On Friday, police provided an update that the graffiti vandalism is believed to be a “diversion tactic” used by one of the Hispanic gangs in the area to avoid being caught by police, and “was possibly done to exploit the recent protest at Caldwell High School.” …

“I am proud of the investigative effort given by our detectives in this matter, who quickly determined this incident to not be a hate crime,” Ingram said.

Please welcome Caldwell, Idaho Hispanic gangs to the Hate Hoax List.
