Another Gay-Bashing Incident Exposed As Hoax...
(WCJ) Certain groups, determined to retain their preferred status as oppressed minorities, rely on increasingly rare cases of discrimination to keep their activist causes afloat. The homosexual lobby is among the most dependent on this tactic.
As fewer and fewer incidents of actual oppression occur, however, many unscrupulous individuals invent so-called hate crimes in an effort to perpetuate the myth that they are still downtrodden. This disturbing trend has played out several times in recent months; however, the true breadth of such manufactured attacks will likely never be known.
The latest such hoax was reportedly perpetrated by a Paris, Tenn., man who claimed he was beaten just before Thanksgiving at an area retailer. Joe Williams told police the perpetrator robbed him during the incident, scrawled an anti-gay slur across his forehead, and set a fire nearby.
In the meantime, investigators determined major aspects of his story – and possibly the entire ordeal – had been completely fabricated. Police Sgt. Ricky Watson explained Williams withheld information and would not respond to requests to reveal additional details.
“He was given three opportunities to disclose that information,” Watson said, “and he chose not to.”
While police are not releasing details regarding Williams’ lies and omissions, they are charging him with filing a false police report.
“We’ve not been able to verify or dispel any of the statements made about the actual robbery or fire,” Watson explained. “We’re looking into Mr. Williams; and we’re looking into whether it did or did not happen.”
Though homosexuals make up an incredibly small minority of the American population, they have achieved significant influence based largely on claims of discrimination and homophobia. As cases like Williams’ and numerous others continue to be exposed, however, the agenda narrative will become far less effective.
The media continue to drive this conversation by downplaying hoaxes and using misleading quotes to paint conservative Christians as bigots. Backlash against “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s biblical views of homosexuality is recent evidence of this trend.
Of course, millions of Americans are no longer accepting such reports at face value. Fraudulent accounts by self-appointed victims only add to that growing mistrust.
