A twenty-year-old black woman named Sharmeka Moffitt in Louisiana claimed that three members of the Ku Klux Klan wrote “KKK” on her body and racial slurs on her car before dousing her with lighter fluid and lighting her on fire. So why is this not big news? Why is MSNBC not taking this and running with it? It would be the perfect anecdote to get Obama reelected. It certainly would have been huge news except that forensic specialists found that the woman set herself on fire. Her fingerprints were on the lighter fluid container and lighter that were recovered at the scene. There is no evidence of her being attacked by three men, much less KKK members. Investigators believe she used toothpaste to scrawl the letters on herself and on her car.
This woman wanted so desperately to be the victim of a hate crime that she was willing to nearly kill herself. Moffitt is now in critical condition in a Shreveport hospital having suffered extensive and self-inflicted burns. Police have to wait until she recovers in order to question her as to why she would invent such a story. It really isn’t that complicated to figure out why a radical liberal would seek so much attention. (I admit I’m going out on a limb by assuming this woman is a liberal. Is that racist?)
This happened fairly recently to a Nebraska lesbian. After the police were notified, she claimed that three masked men broke into her house, tied her down and cut “homophobic” slurs into her body. She also claimed that these men wrote slurs on her walls and almost set her and her house on fire. As it turned out, it was all staged. She had done everything to herself in order to win everybody’s sympathy. There were candlelight vigils done in her honor, nearly $1,000 of donations raised, and she received encouragement and support from her LGBT friends. It was all based on something that never happened. She ended up being arrested for lying to the police.
Both of these cases were definitely “hate crimes.” Moffitt must have hated whites so much that she blamed her self-inflicted injuries on them in hopes that the media would pick up on it and convince all their viewers to hate whites even more. Likewise, Rogers must have hated non-homosexuals so much that she was willing to go to such great lengths and much pain just to be seen as a victim. Would anyone be surprised to find out that Moffitt and Rogers were both Obama supporters?
Those on the left have to resort to pathological lying and elaborate role-playing in order to justify their worldview to themselves and others. If they aren’t in enough pain in the real world to elicit sympathy from their society, they have to fabricate their victimization.
Sometimes it backfires when people find out the whole story.
