“Hate hoaxes”, as they are being called, are crimes in which people fake a “hate crime” or “bias crime” with the intent to slander a group of people (statistically white males) and validate the victim status of those perpetrating the hoaxes. Some might call them small scale false flags that are given maximum impact thanks to the participation of the Legacy Media in promoting the lie. These hoaxes strengthen the narrative and increase the likelihood that future hoaxes will be believed and also perpetrated again and again. When found to be hoaxes, the coverage is minimal. Some outlets keep hosting the original story and never correct it, or if they do the correction is below the large bold face and false headline.
This is yet another of the seemingly endless examples of the Legacy Media’s hubris or flat out deception in their crusade against so called “fake news” in their effort to distort or defeat the 1st amendment. Below is a collection of “real news” stories that turned out to be hoaxes:
