Floyd Elliott of Independence, Missouri, told police that two people attacked him in the parking lot of his apartment complex in what he claimed was a hate crime. He said the attackers cut him in the stomach, branded him with a hot knife and attempted to carve the word “fag” on his forehead.
Investigators were suspicious about the report because the head carving was backwards, as if done while looking into a mirror. Later, Elliott admitted to police that the injuries were self-inflicted.
Can you say, Elliott stepped in it?
Friends, immediately after reading this report I had to look up the word “stupid” in Noah Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language. It’s defined as “very dull; insensible; senseless.” Stupid, I say, not only because he carved “fag” on his forehead backwards, but because he acted as if his contrived crime would go unpunished before the God who sees all things (Heb. 4:13).
Considering that all crime is motivated by hate, oftentimes you have to examine the allegations of the supposed “hate crime” to make the distinction as to who is doing the hating.
It seems today that more often than not those that are decrying hate are the ones that are actually perpetuating it. They intend through deceptive measures to create monsters out of those who don’t agree with their lifestyles or political agendas and revert back to their carnal nature for distorted guidance, so in the end they can become the victim.
What happens when law enforcement looks a little deeper into their surfaced allegations and finds out that the alleged “victims” were actually the ones contriving and fabricating the crimes?
So let’s take a look into the minds of the distorted to see how far they are willing to go to further their agendas:
There is the famous contrived hate crime of Kerri Dunn at Claremont McKenna College. Dunn was scheduled to speak at a campus forum on racism. She shocked the audience by telling them that she had been the victim of a hate crime that very day. How convenient, or was it?
Her car had been vandalized, its windows smashed, tires slashed. And profane, anti-Semitic graffiti covered the wreckage. The problem with her story was that two students saw her cause the damage. Dunn lost her job and also went to prison for lying to federal investigators and for insurance fraud. (She had claimed that $1,700 worth of items, including a laptop computer, had been stolen by the hate-crime bogeyman. These items were later found in a closet in Dunn’s home.) Oh, and by the way, she wasn’t even Jewish.
Deuteronomy 19:18–19 states:
“The judges shall investigate thoroughly, and if the witness is a false witness and he has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him just as he had intended to do to his brother. Thus you shall purge the evil from among you.”
When people are held accountable for their self-inflicted crimes, then and only then will they fear to do it again. What a novel idea. Justice is the guardian of liberty. So, America, guard your liberty by bringing forth justice.
In Douglas County, Colorado, a lesbian couple called the police after they allegedly found the words “Kill the Gay” scrawled in red across their garage and a noose hanging from their front door.
Perhaps the women didn’t anticipate how seriously the issue would be treated, because nearly eight months later, with the full force of the FBI involved, authorities stated the women themselves were responsible for the acts. They were charged with both criminal mischief and false reporting, and one of the women, Aimee Whitchurch, faced an additional charge of forgery (See the TV news report here.) They both pled guilty to the charges.
