University of Michigan Noose Is Not a Noose

To judge by prevailing rhetoric, nooses were only ever used to oppress innocent Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation. That means whenever you see a noose, you have witnessed a hate crime

University of Michigan police are investigating after a noose was found on an employee’s desk at a university hospital.

The university has “taken immediate action” to investigate the incident that occurred Thursday as an act of discrimination and criminal ethnic intimidation, said Dr. Marschall S. Runge, the dean of the University of Michigan Medical School.

…or more likely, a hate hoax. After much tearing of hair and rending of garments, with CNN and the FBI being made aware of the crisis, we read this from U of M’s Division of Public Safety and Security:

Based on multiple witness interviews and other evidence, DPSS does not believe that the incident involving the rope was a hate crime. If relevant new information comes forward, the case will be reopened.

During the investigation, it was learned that a spool of rope utilized for medical procedures was being used by a person on a break to practice tying a “Uni Knot,” which is a type of knot used for fishing.

However, it remains a possibility that the knot was tied by a racist practicing to catch blackfish so as to oppress them.

Although there does not appear to be intent to deceive in this case, hyping a piece of rope that vaguely resembles a noose into a hate crime is so irresponsible as to qualify as a hoax.

The level of delusional hysteria required to produce incidents like this was last seen at the Salem witch trials.

Hat tip: Legal Insurrection.
