Dean of Science at the University of Technology Sydney Arrested for Hoax

Hate hoaxers are advised not to ply their trade in Australia. Turns out you can actually get in trouble for it there, even if you are the Dean of Science at the University of Technology Sydney, as environmental chemist and toxicologist Dianne Jolley has learned.

Professor Jolley was apparently less than jolly about a degree program in Chinese medicine getting canceled. In protest, she wrote herself some threatening letters and reported clothes stolen from her backyard.

Via Stuff:

As a result of the claimed harassment, significant security measures were implemented on Professor Jolley’s behalf and an investigation was launched by officers from Sydney City police.

On November 15 Professor Jolley was arrested at the UTS campus and charged with obtaining a financial advantage by deception, giving false information about a person or property in danger, and making false representations resulting in a police investigation.

Good thing for Jussie Smollett they don’t treat hoaxers that way in Chicago.

Please welcome Dianne Jolley to the Hate Hoax List.

Where to Look for the Next Bridge Collapse

As noted previously, no lessons were learned from the collapse of Diversity Bridge that killed 6 people. The next catastrophic bridge collapse is likely to occur in Colorado, although it will be more a matter of corrupt cronyism than contrived diversity. Governor Jared Polis has appointed 35-year-old Shoshana Lew, whose education consists of a master’s in history, to be Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Transportation.

From Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle via Animal Magnetism:

She replaced Governor Hickenlooper’s appointment of 56-year-old Michael Lewis, an engineer with extensive public construction management experience. …

Lew’s primary qualification, according to insiders, was her close relationship to Michelle Obama who called the newly elected governor for a favor — find a job for Shoshana Lew. Lew is the daughter of President Obama’s Chief of Staff and later Secretary of the Treasury, Jack Lew.

If a call from Michelle Obama could keep hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett out of jail as has been surmised, it could easily put a random crony in charge of CDOT.

Ms Lew has no apparent interest in Colorado’s crumbling roads, but is heavily into bike lanes, walking paths, light rail, et cetera.

Cronyism is one reason that more government means less competence. Democrats, being the party of Big Government, are reliably the least competent people to put in charge.

Rashid Tlaib, Hate Hoaxer

Squad member Rashida Tlaib, who succinctly summarized the Democrat Party platform when she screeched “Impeach the m******f******” prior to the current pretext for impeachment, is a master at promoting and exploiting hate hoaxes. The Washington Free Beacon notes that she has climbed aboard at least four hoaxes so far this year without issuing corrections after the hoaxes collapsed.

The most recent example is the Amari Allen hoax, which inspired this tweet:

Big Boss tweeted an apology in light of Amari admitting that she invented her allegations. There has been no apology from Tlaib, most of whose followers probably don’t know that it was a hoax.

Other times Tlaib promoted a hoax and then refused to acknowledge that it had been debunked according to WFB include the Covington Catholic spectacle, the Jussie Smollett farce, and the appalling story of black Georgia lawmaker Erica Thomas, who invented an incident of racial oppression at a grocery store.

Exploiting hate hoaxes and irresponsibly refusing to acknowledge that they have been debunked makes Rashida Tlaib a hate hoaxer herself, in addition to an overall nasty piece of work. Please welcome this Democrat congresscritter to the Hate Hoax List.

A&I’s Chicken Shack: Hate Hoaxing as Marketing?

The more successful hate hoaxes are never definitively exposed. It would be a shame to deny their perpetrators a coveted spot on the Hate Hoax List. Fortunately, some are so improbable that it seems reasonable to place them on the list on a tentative basis, pending evidence that may never be produced, especially when authorities are not always eager to produce it. An example would be A&I’s Chicken Shack in North Carolina:

Customers at a Siler City restaurant are standing up to racism by filling the tables after the owners received hate mail that included numerous racial slurs this week.

Andre Chaney and Ivan Santos opened A&I’s Chicken Shack about three weeks ago…

Chaney, who is black, said he got an unwelcome greeting in a letter he received Wednesday telling him the restaurant has no place in Siler City.

“You will not make it here. Leave town or we will help you,” the letter, signed “White Nationalists,” concluded.

Apologies to Chaney if any of this is on the level, but signed “White Nationalists”? Please. It would not have been less believable if he had signed his marketing missive “Dastardly Racist Villains.”

The letter included a reference to Making America Great Again and re-electing Trump. If you don’t like Trump, you know where to eat in Siler City, NC.

He posted the letter to social media as a way to speak out against the person or people behind it. The post quickly generated support for A&I’s Chicken Shack from people near and far.

The first lesson of 21st century marketing: convince the public that it can signal politically correct virtue by becoming your customer.

Chatham County Sheriff Mike Roberson says he is “really proud of the community response.”

Roberson’s deputies are investigating the letter to determine who sent it, adding that it could lead to felony charges.

Things could get embarrassing if they investigate too hard. Consider what would have happened to Jussie Smollett if he had not had friends in high places.

Erica Thomas Joins Hate Hoax List

The Squad (aka the Jihad Squad, the Gang of Four, AOC+3) got a great deal of obsequious publicity out of Trump’s tweet that if they hate America so much, they so go back to their ancestral homelands. Georgia democrat lawmaker Erica Thomas apparently decided she wanted a piece of the pie.

Via Townhall:

Georgia State Rep. and Minority Leader Erica Thomas (D) took to Twitter on Saturday, saying a white man called her “a lazy SOB” and that she needed to go back to where she came from because she had too many items in the express lane at the local Publix.

Surely, an experience this traumatic dwarfs the Holocaust. See how Rep Thomas has been reduced to sniveling and blubbering like a 2-year-old:

Bleeding heart liberalism means being ruled by people of this caliber.

Unsurprisingly, it appears her nauseating performance was a lie. The alleged racist who supposedly oppressed her is a Cuban-American Democrat named Eric Sparkes who suffers from Trump derangement syndrome and who had publicly denounced Trump for his controversial tweet regarding the Squad moonbats. This same Trump tweet clearly motivated Thomas’s hoax, as she more or less admits by referencing Ilhan Omar in the video. Sparkes showed up at her press conference to pull the rug out from under her hoax.

There really was an argument over Thomas’s inappropriate use of an express lane, but from there her story is evidently fiction.

Thomas confirmed that she is not to be believed by changing her story, making the allegations vaguer. But like Jussie Smollett, she doggedly continues to insist that she was oppressed by racism.

Tim Pool covers this embarrassing affair and offers a theory as to how a loss of purpose leads to moonbattery, leading in turn to using these disgraceful hate hoaxes to prop up the false ideology of liberalism:

Hate Crime Hoax: The Book

The only thing unusual about the Jussie Smollett hate hoax is that because the perpetrator is a Hollyweirdo, it has continued to generate some media interest, even after it was exposed. When it comes to hate incidents against politically preferred groups, hoaxes are not the exception but the rule, as Wilfred Reilly confirms in his recommended book Hate Crime Hoax: How the Left is Selling a Fake Race War.

Reilly is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Kentucky State, which is a 47% black college. Somehow, he gets away with pulling the curtain back on the hate hoax phenomenon.

His fellow black thought criminal Jason Riley likes the book too:

If “Hate Crime Hoax” merely offered examples to illustrate the extent of this phenomenon—and the book offers nearly 100—it would be providing a much-needed public service. But Mr. Reilly has a larger point to make. The Smollett case isn’t an outlier. Increasingly, it’s the norm. And the media’s relative lack of interest in exposing hoaxes that don’t involve famous figures is a big part of the problem.

Interested readers are of course also referred to the representative Hate Hoax List.

Applied Liberal Rhetoric

The rhetoric spewed by leftist authorities has real-world consequences, even when it is never imposed as law. Lately, congresscritters have been discussing slavery reparations, as if the $trillions flushed down the welfare state were not already more than enough. They know that no reparations bill is likely to pass so long as blacks make up only 13% of the population. The idea is to gin up their base. Looks like this works:

A black parolee arrested for raping and bashing a white woman on the roof of his Bronx apartment building allegedly told a witness that she “deserved” the brutal attack because of slavery, according to court papers.

“She was a white girl. She deserved it because us minorities have been through slavery,” Temar Bishop, 23, allegedly said to someone who witnessed the bloodied 20-year-old woman after the assaults, according to a criminal complaint.

He beat her unconscious in addition to raping her because that is what he has been told the slave masters used to do.

The odds that his victim ever owned any slaves are about the same as the odds that Temar knows slavery existed throughout the world from prehistoric times until the British empire all but stamped it out. Everyone has ancestors who were slaves.

Maybe whites should start demanding reparations. They don’t need to go back centuries to find grievances; they are physically assaulted on a daily basis because of their race right now.

What do you get when you cross Jussie Smollett with Nathan Phillips? Belligerently oppressed Indian activist Jenni Monet, who claims she was racially oppressed by a liquor store that wouldn’t sell to her when she was conspicuously drunk:

Screeching racism when the only racist is herself earns Jenni Monet a coveted slot on the Hate Hoax List.

Why Actual Epidemic of Hate Crimes Is Not News

Sputtering righteousness is just window dressing. The issue is never the issue; the issue is always increasing power for the left. Consider hate crimes. When they increase leftist power, they are treasured by the media, hyped to skies with hyperbolic rhetoric, even though they are often fake. No one needs to fake hate crimes against Jews. But we don’t hear much about them, because they do not advance the narrative:

Orthodox Jews in New York City, specifically in Brooklyn, have experienced alarming rates of physical assault over the past year. The New York Police Department says that hate crimes in the city are up 67 percent this year. Of those, a whopping 80 percent have been anti-Semitic hate crimes. Just this week an Orthodox Jew just walking down the street was attacked from behind, punched in the head by an attacker who then ran away. In another incident this week, an Orthodox Jew was attacked by a group of men, one of whom shouted “You (expletive) Jew.”

This is an all too familiar story in Brooklyn these days, and there is a reason it isn’t being treated as a crisis by our media or government. That reason is that many if not most of the assailants are black or Hispanic men. …

I asked city councilman and candidate for public advocate Joe Borelli if he thought the city and Mayor Bill de Blasio were doing enough. He was succinct, “It seems like the outrage ended when they couldn’t tie these hate crimes to Trump.”

Since Nancy Pelosi lost a power struggle to Ilhan Omar, it has been official that the Democratic Party owns anti-Semitism. Therefore, attacks on Jews will be reported with muddled doubletalk when they are reported at all, since the media establishment is an extension of the Democratic Party. Now back to the Jussie Smollett show.

Why Can’t Candace Clark File a False Police Report?

It is legal now to file a false police report in Illinois, right? Otherwise, hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett would face charges. Yet authorities were willing to throw the book at Candace Clark, apparently only because she does not have influential friends like Smollett…

Appalling as it is that Kim Foxx has not been forced out of office, at least there is enough vestigial respect for justice to inspire a little pushback, even in the Democrat-dominated Chicago area.

Hate Hoax at BerMax Caffé and Bistro

Even in the aftermath of the Jussie Smollett spectacle, the hate hoaxes keep coming. In Winnipeg, the three family members who own BerMax Caffé and Bistro stand accused of staging an anti-Semitic attack on the night before the beginning of Passover:

[Last] Thursday evening, police responded to a report of an assault at the restaurant. A woman said she’d been assaulted, and the restaurant was spray-painted with hateful graffiti, police said.

However, the investigation didn’t go as planned.

“We found evidence of a crime. It just wasn’t a hate crime,” said [Winnipeg police Chief Danny] Smyth, adding the police expended considerable resources investigating and took the report seriously.

That’s the problem with hate hoaxes. Authorities take them too seriously for the good of the hoaxers, consequently discovering what really happened.

At long last, some accountability:

Alexander Berent, 56, Oxana Berent, 48, and Maxim Berent, 29, have all been charged with public mischief and were released after being arrested, police say.

Unless they have powerful friends like Jussie, they are unlikely to get away with it.

Oxana pulled out all the stops; that is, she played the Holocaust card:

“My grandmother’s family, they died in the Holocaust. Just her and her little brother survived, the whole family. We don’t joke about that,” she said, through tears.

How heart-breaking if she is falsely accused. How disgusting if she isn’t — and there is no reason to doubt the police. The Jewish Federation of Winnipeg doesn’t seem to:

“We reiterate our appreciation of the work of the Winnipeg Police Service and their continued support for the Jewish community.”

Had the hoax worked, it would have done wonders for business. Following the incident, Winnipeg rallied behind the Jewish community, according to Ran Ukashi of B’Nai Brith Canada.

Similarly, had Jussie Smollett pulled off his hoax successfully, he would have won an Oscar every year for the rest of life — possibly while two random innocent guys rotted in jail.

Please welcome BerMax Caffé and Bistro to the Hate Hoax List.

Rachel Dolezal Skates for Felony Welfare Fraud

Those cynical enough to be unsurprised that Jussie Smollett has so far escaped punishment for committing over a dozen felonies while perpetrating a hate hoax will have their bleak viewpoint confirmed by Rachel Dolezal — whose entire existence is a racial hoax — also escaping meaningful punishment for felony welfare fraud:

Dolezal, who changed her name to Nkechi Diallo two years ago, was charged with two felonies last May.

Investigators alleged she failed to report tens of thousands of dollars in income from her memoir, “In Full Color: Finding My Place in a Black and White World,” and other sources, so she could collect $8,847 in food and child care assistance from the state.

Having been caught, she now has to repay the money and twiddle her thumbs through 120 hours of community service to avoid a trial.

This pales in comparison to the punishment she received when she was revealed as a Caucasian. She was pushed from her perch atop the Spokane NAACP and lost a job teaching African studies at Eastern Washington University — despite her continuing to identify as black.

Chicago Police Surrender to Gang

An incident that could presage the total collapse of law and order in Chicago has slipped past almost completely unnoticed:

As the Chicago Tribune reported, on March 20th, two tactical police officers from the Chicago PD were in the process of arresting a suspected drug dealer on the city’s west side. After securing the suspect and confiscating a bundle of drugs as evidence, placing them in the patrol car, the officers were surrounded by a group of men who began to threaten them. At least one claimed to be armed and demanded the suspect be released or he would shoot the cops. Someone in the mob stole the drugs from the patrol car and fled, with one officer giving pursuit. The threatened violence surrounding the patrol car escalated and the cops wound up releasing the suspect and leaving the scene.

For the most part, the media had nothing to say about this retreat by civilization in the face of savagery. However, if the police had used their guns to defend themselves, there would have been national headlines denouncing them for being racists who indulge in excessive force. The people in charge, like Kim Foxx, who let Jussie Smollett off the hook after wasting countless hours of police time, will rarely have their back. We are reaching the point where it makes more sense from the point of view of the police to just let the criminals run wild.

Chicago is reverting to jungle. Without law enforcement, it will be unfit for habitation for anyone but savages. That is the price of moonbattery.

The anti-police Black Lives Matter narrative aggressively pushed by the media accelerates this decay. You can see why they didn’t make a big deal of the Chicago police surrendering to a gang. The media does not want us to know where it is taking us.

Who Made the Call to Kim Foxx?

The abrupt dismissal of 16 felony charges against hate hoaxer of privilege Jussie Smollett represents such a patently corrupt travesty of justice that even the Mayor of Chicago is appalled. State’s Attorney Kim Foxx had previously recused herself from the case, before stepping in to dismiss it. Is she that worried that a trial would shine a light on the prevalence of hate hoaxes, thereby undermining the liberal narrative? Or are there other motivating factors?

It’s as if a call came down from above telling her to let Smollett off pronto. The call didn’t come from Rahm Emanuel, unless he is now faking his outrage. Maybe it came from the Daddy Warbucks of the radical left, George Soros:

State campaign finance records show that Soros personally contributed a total of $333,000 to Foxx’s super PAC before the March 15, 2016 primary was over, and an additional $75,000 after she won.

You pay the piper, she plays your tune. That could be why Soros has been investing so heavily in local prosecutorial offices.

Then again, maybe the call came from someone else. Michelle Obama, for example:

After being contacted by a Chicago attorney who served as former first lady Michelle Obama’s chief of staff, the top prosecutor in Cook County asked the city’s top cop to turn over the Jussie Smollett probe to the FBI, according to reports.

The Russiagate debacle suggests that some might regard the FBI as sufficiently politicized to let an investigation people like Michelle Obama want dead die.

Sometimes injustice is so over the top that people get tired of letting it slide. As the Chicago Tribune notes,

It’s an indefensible decision, a deal hashed out in secret, with — this is outrageous — Smollett not even required to take ownership of his apparent hoax. Not even required to apologize for allegedly exploiting hate crime laws. And not even required to reimburse Chicago taxpayers for the enormous cost of this investigation.

No one except Smollett denies his guilt. He paid a trivial fine by forfeiting his $10,000 bond in exchange for getting the charges dropped, his record expunged, and the public court file sealed. Regular Americans don’t get deals like that.

Whoever made that theoretical call to Foxx, this stinks so badly even by Chicago standards that someone may have to cough up some answers.

If the goal was to protect the hate hoax phenomenon from exposure, this is likely to blow up in moonbats’ faces. Sufficient public outrage could make it hard for the media to make the story disappear.

The purpose of the hoax was to convince us that Smollett is oppressed because he belongs to two politically favored identity groups: the black and the gay. That he is the farthest thing from oppressed is now indisputable.

Michael Avenatti, Mark Geragos, and CNN

Moonbat politics and skeeviness naturally go together, so it is no surprise that certain left-liberal lawyers leave a slimy trail behind them as they move across a room. This does not reflect well upon the propaganda outlets who present them as authoritative voices. Specifically, I refer to porn lawyer Michael Avenatti:

The arrest Monday of Michael Avenatti in an extortion case reportedly linked to fellow celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos sparked trouble for two men who recently had been fixtures on cable news, especially CNN.

Avenatti became a regular fixture on CNN and MSNBC (appearing 108 times between March 7 and May 10) by representing porn star Stormy Daniels against Trump. He tried to extort as much as $25 million from his fellow moonbats at Nike, threatening them with bad publicity.

The attorney, who also was accused of embezzling a client’s money to pay his own expenses, was charged with extortion and bank and wire fraud in separate cases in New York and California. He was arrested in New York.

Avenatti’s coconspirator has been identified as Mark Geragos, whose unsavory client list includes child molester Michael Jackson, hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett, pardoned Clinton accomplice Susan McDougal, and ultra-moonbat washed-up football player Colin Kaepernick — who is the face of Nike.

Geragos is no longer listed as a legal analyst on CNN’s website. It’s a little late to shut the barn door now. The public is already aware of the caliber of CNN’s experts.

Last year, CNN was so big on Avenatti that its chief media correspondent Brian Stelter hyped him as a 2020 presidential candidate, telling him,

“One reason I’m taking you seriously as a contender is because of your presence on cable news.”

Geragos would make an appropriate VP. The two might have to run from behind bars though.
