People are gullible and narcissistic personalities know this and create these hate crimes as a way to get attention and gain sympathy (and as a form
People on the left are often way too quick to support these accusations without critical thought or analyses (surprise!).
I am very familiar with a case that was mentioned in the article being cited as it occurred in my town. A gay bar burned down and the owner claimed
he found homophobic and racial slurs. This town is EXTREMELY liberal. I mean we have Drag Queen story time at the library. Rainbow flags
everywhere, even on churches. Like the Smollet case, it made ZERO sense if you looked at it objectively.
Why would some racist come to our community and burn down an unknown gay bar? This isn't a rural area, so the odds of anyone holding those kind of
views being anywhere near this town are slim to none.
The town rallied behind the bar owner. All the resident liberals acted all shocked and outraged. A few of us, simply didn't buy the story. Sure
enough, about six months later it came out it was insurance fraud.
The biggest issue is that the media never actually "corrects the record". The initial story appears on front page but then when it is debunked, you
might see it on Page 23 next to some car advertisement.
I am black. Grew up in the south in 70s / 80s. Even then, I've hardly ever been a "victim" or any kind of hate crime. Yeah, I've seen n*gger
scrawled on some bathroom wall. Whoopee. I'm scarred and have PTSD as a result (sarcasm off).
Any racism I've experienced has been very subtle. Rarely are racist so bold to outright attack someone or do something flagrant like burn a cross in
a yard which is why you know most of these incidents are fake.
