A black student at East Carolina University was arrested after police said he posted a fake racist fraternity party invite that read “No blacks.”
The arrest comes after another student was initially accused of posting the invite, after which he said he received death threats.
What are the details?
James Daniel Edwards, 19, was booked Friday at the Pitt County Jail on a misdemeanor cyberstalking charge that came with a $1,000 bond. Edwards’ race is listed as black in jail records.
Officials said Edwards turned himself in at the jail, the News & Observer reported.
Another day, another hate hoax.
Douglas County, Atlanta – A 30-year-old woman this week was charged with 8 counts of making terroristic threats in the Brookmont subdivision of Douglasville.
For nearly a year, Terresha Lucas left threatening, racially charged notes in black people’s mailboxes on Manning Drive.
Lucas, a black woman, pretended to be a white male member of the Ku Klux Klan and described herself as 6 feet tall with a long red beard.
“Residents on Manning Drive began receiving the notes last December from a person who claimed to be a white male member of the Ku Klux Klan, who threatened to burn down their homes and kill them, according to detectives with the Douglasville Police Department.” the police said.
“Instead, their investigation led them to Terresha Lucas, a 30-year-old African-American female, who was charged with eight counts of making terroristic threats this month. Accused of writing and placing the notes in her neighbors’ boxes, Lucas allegedly described herself as a six-feet-tall white male with a long, red beard who did not live in the neighborhood.” they added.
It was all a hoax.
Students at Parkway Central High School in St. Louis County held a walkout protest last Thursday after racist graffiti was found at the school last week.
On Tuesday School Superintendent Keith Marty admitted to parents the culprit was identified and that the student is black.
Yet, another hate hoax.
Local grifters participated in the rally.
Suspected vandal Roy Lee Gordon Jr., an-ex Emory University employee and black man, has been arrested for allegedly spraying racist graffiti at his workplace.
In what appears to be another incident in a string of hate hoaxes in the past several months, the former part-time Emory staff member is accused of vandalizing the university’s Autism Center with racist and antisemitic graffiti in early August.
According to the Daily Wire, racial slurs were written near the workspace occupied by two African-American women. There was also a swastika painted near the office of a Jewish individual. In addition, a glass door had been ruined and nearby vending machines were damaged.
At the time of the vandalism’s discovery, the private Atlanta school issued an impassioned Aug. 20 statement. “These acts of racism and antisemitism are painful for all of us at the EAC and in the Emory community. They will not be tolerated, and every effort will be made to bring the perpetrators to justice,” Emory University officials said of the crimes perpetrated on the weekend of Aug. 7 and 8.
After the alleged perpetrator was arrested, a milder message was released:
“Emory University is committed to fostering a safe and inclusive campus for all faculty, staff, students, patients and their families.”
A police mugshot published by the Atlanta Journal Constitution shows that Gordon is black, the first time his race has been revealed publicly.
However, the university still shies away from noting the suspect’s race.
After Tennessee vaccine official Dr Michelle Fiscus asserted that someone had mailed her a muzzle in an attempt to intimidate her, it subsequently emerged that the item was purchased with a credit card in Fiscus’ name.
Fiscus, who was fired from her role as Tennessee’s vaccine chief, originally claimed that someone was trying to get her to “stop talking about vaccinating people” and had sent the muzzle as a threat.
This prompted health department official Paul Peterson to alert the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security and a full investigation was launched.
However, according to Axios, evidence clearly suggests that Fiscus purchased the item herself.
“The Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security found through a subpoena that the Amazon package containing the muzzle traced back to a credit card in Fiscus’ name,” states the report.
“When asked by investigators, Fiscus provided information for an Amazon account in her name. It was a different account than the one used to purchase the muzzle.”
“The investigation concluded that “the results of this investigation that purchases from both Amazon accounts were charged to the same American Express credit card in the name of Dr. Michelle D. Fiscus.”
A scientific journal article authored by Professor Peter Hotez, a frequent guest on corporate media networks, called to “extend federal hate-crime protections” for scientists facing criticism from alleged “far-right extremists,” including National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Hotez, who himself has been funded by Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1993, offered the robust defense of scientists including Fauci and EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak in a recent paper: “Mounting Antiscience Aggression In The United States.”
“There is a troubling new expansion of antiscience aggression in the United States. It’s arising from far-right extremism,” the paper, published in the peer-reviewed Public Library of Science (PLOS) Biology journal, begins.
“A band of ultraconservative members of the US Congress and other public officials with far-right leanings are waging organized and seemingly well-coordinated attacks against prominent US biological scientists. In parallel, conservative news outlets repeatedly and purposefully promote disinformation designed to portray key American scientists as enemies,” it reiterates.
The Department of Justice and the FBI have a message for local police departments: start charging more white people with hate crimes or invite an investigation.
Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta told an assembly of FBI agents yesterday that they are now tasked with hounding police departments in their district if they do not register any “hate crimes.”
Gupta and FBI Deputy Assistant Director of the Criminal Investigative Division Jay Greenberg have declared “hate crimes” by “racially motivated violent extremists” (a euphemism generally reserved for right-wing white men) to be a national threat priority — a rare designation.
According to Greenberg, the FBI will be increasingly specialized in pursuing “hate crimes” through increased training in the matter, an aggressive media campaign designed to recruit victims in “underrepresented and targeted populations,” and putting federal pressure on local law enforcement to charge and report hate crimes when they otherwise wouldn’t.
Hate crimes laws are political and racially motivated. Blacks and Jews are heavily overrepresented as supposed victims in the FBI’s “hate crime” database, while whites are charged at higher rates than general crime rates. Blacks are rarely charged with hate crimes when they commit bias crimes against whites. For example, last month a black man who shot five white men in a multi-state shooting spree told police his sole motive was that he hated white people, yet neither local prosecutors or the FBI have charged him with a hate crime.
Mayor Jimmy Matta of Burien, Washington has ridiculously claimed to be the victim of a “hate crime” because of lightning bolts on a yard sign.
Matta made the claim on Friday over a yard sign advocating against progressive candidates, including him.
The sign urged people not to vote for Matta, Hugo Garcia, Sarah Moore and Marxist candidate Krystal Marx — and read “SEATTLE POLITICS ARE BAD FOR BURIEN.”
Stickers reading “CORRUPT” were also placed on the far-left candidates signs.
Matta told local station KIRO 7 that the lightning bolts were “Nazi symbols” being used to attack his, and the other candidates, identities.
“Burien is 54,000 residents. 42% people of color. 25% Latino. This community has changed. Some people may be fearful of it. They might not know what’s coming next and some people just don’t want that,” Matta said. “What’s the reason to call a person of color corrupt when you can’t substantiate it?”
The unhinged nut job said that he wants the person responsible prosecuted… for exercising their First Amendment rights.
“Is it because we’re bringing Donald Trump’s tactics back of ‘they send their worst, their rapists, their thieves to America?’” Matta added. “To me, that’s what it means. These tactics here today are uncalled for and I want this individual prosecuted because this is an attack on our democracy. Period.”
Moore also said she “felt really disturbed” by the imagery, adding, “it looked like hate symbolism.”
Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) has received praise from left-wing activists for a Twitter thread composed of hateful messages she claims to have received from “white supremacists.” However, several sharp-eyed Twitter users noticed that one of the images posted by Bush appears to have been screenshot from an unsubmitted “Meeting / Event Request” form on Bush’s website, making it unlikely that such a message was actually sent to Bush from a “white supremacist.”
“White supremacists wanted me dead before I came to Congress,” Bush proclaimed on Twitter. “And white supremacist threats on my life have only intensified as a Black woman speaking truth in the halls of power. Just know: They won’t stop us. They can’t.” Bush then added a trigger warning for “TW: white supremacist violence.”
The screenshot features the sentences “kill a politician (wishing)cori” and “How are you a worthless piece of sh*t” written on a meeting request from Bush’s website. Curiously, the screenshot is identical to how an unsubmitted request form appears on Bush’s website, complete with red asterisks that denote which fields are required to be filled in.
In 2015, in an outburst of pure insanity, the National Fraternal Order of Police, a union representing over 300,000 officers, called for cops to be included under Congress’s hate crimes statute. This demand has since materialized into multiple acts of “Blue Lives Matter” laws, and TFTP has reported on their use multiple times. Never, however, have we seen hate crime legislation used to prosecute the free speech of an innocent person — until now.
A 19-year-old woman in Utah has been charged with a hate crime after she allegedly stomped on a “back the blue” sign at a gas station. There was no victim and no one had been harmed, yet a Garfield County police officer claimed the young woman’s actions made him fear for his life and therefore pushed to have her charged with a hate crime.
According to the arrest affidavit, as reported by the Salt Lake Tribune, the Garfield County police officer was conducting a traffic stop for speeding at a gas station when the officer saw a woman “stomping on a ‘Back the Blue’ sign next to where the traffic stop was conducted, crumble it up in a destructive manner and throw it into a trash can all while smirking in an intimidating manner towards me.”
The “smirking” caused the cop to fear for his safety and he moved to detain and subsequently arrest the woman for her completely legal act.
