The left has constructed an elaborate myth of rising “white supremacy,” and just as Muslims do in order to buttress their claims of widespread “islamophobia,” has resorted to fabricating “hate crimes” to compensate for the fact that there very few, if any, real ones. Kissie Ram is by no means the first leftist to fabricate “racist hate crimes,” and she likely won’t be the last, because there is hardly any downside. She had the whole Drake University campus on her side when she faked the hate crimes.
She had international media attention.
Her fakery will be noted only here and in a few other places, and quickly forgotten, as the left continues to insist that racism is on the rise.
“Hate Crime Hoax: Drake University Student Admits to Sending Racist Notes to Herself, Others,” by Alana Mastrangelo, Breitbart, December 6, 2018 (thanks to Todd):
A Drake University student is facing charges and possible expulsion after it was discovered she sent racist notes to herself and others, in what turned out to be an elaborate hate crime hoax.
The student, identified as Kissie Ram by the Des Moines police, has been charged with making false police reports regarding the racist notes found by students on campus in November, according to the Des Moines Register.
Student Keith Walker found the first racist note on November 7, which had been slid under his dorm-room door, demanding that the student leave the school due to the color of his skin.
In the following weeks, four additional racist notes had surfaced around campus, accelerating a widespread concern among students and staff across the university. On November 12, the university announced that white supremacist robocalls had been made throughout the campus community.
“We still have a lot of work to do to create the welcoming and supportive community” stated the university president, Marty Martin, in a memo, “The forces of hate are mobilized, but they don’t control us or what happens on our campus.”
The following day, thousands of concerned Drake University students, staff, and alumni rallied against racism on campus.
One day after the rally, more racist notes were discovered on campus.
“Two more racist notes have been slipped under students’ doors,” announced the university, “The person behind these acts continues to show us the corruptness of his or her soul. The individual’s goal is to sow fear and anguish, and to then sit back and watch us flight among ourselves over what he or she has done.”
On November 16, the university held a “Paint it Black” event on campus, in response to the white supremacist robocalls made earlier that week.
The purpose of the event was to “demonstrate shared commitment to Drake University’s students of color,” according to the event description on Facebook.
“The campus community will join together to paint the Painted Street black, a powerful statement of solidarity and anti-racism.”
“This historic action is to demonstrate a shared commitment to Drake University’s students of color in a powerful statement of solidarity. Together, campus united to fight racism and say, ‘You will not win,’” tweeted the university.
Then, on November 30, the university announced that a student, later announced as Kissie Ram, had been identified and confirmed to be the sender of the racist notes, one of which was sent to herself.
The university added that the additional notes were likely “copycat hoaxes” of the first racist note that was found on November 7, and that an investigation into who sent the first note was still being conducted….
Drake University student body president, Jose Garcia-Fuerte added that concerns for safety should not be dismissed, despite most of the notes having been discovered were hoaxes.
