If there is so much racism and hate in America, why on earth do people keep making up all these “hate hoaxes?”
If there was SO MUCH racism, hate, and threats going on, there would be a REAL “racist” news story every hour. But there’s not.
I am not suggesting “racism” isn’t real. People will always have prejudice against other people for a number of reasons..
But what I am saying is that it’s not a “pandemic” or an “epidemic” or whatever the left is calling it now.
If it were, all of these so-called victims wouldn’t have to make up “hate hoaxes.”
The most famous ones, of course, are Jussie Smollett and the NASCAR “noose” disaster featuring attention hog and all-around jerk Bubba Wallace – but there are so many others that go basically unreported. They happen all the time and are quietly swept under the rug.
Like this incident in Oregon.
An Oregon politician claimed that he received a “racist hate letter.” He posted it on Facebook and shamed America for being “racist” and intolerant – the usual BS these people do.
But in the end, it turns out there was no “racist letter…” the man wrote it to himself.
“We now more than ever must address these issues that are destroying and distancing us from unification,” Lopez wrote on Facebook. “We must be mature and adults about things and address them properly at a table or meeting in which we can come to an agreement or mutual understanding!”
“I hold no resentment for whom ever wrote this; I’m just simply heart broken for the lack of knowledge, education and respect missing. I pray for you and wish you prosperity in your life. God bless us all!” he concluded.
The letter Lopez claimed he received read, in part: “Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other f****** Mexicans in the area!” The letter ends by stating, “Sincerely, America!”
Lopez previously ran for a commissioner seat in Umatilla County but lost in the primary. He reported the letter to Hermiston Police, who investigated Lopez’s claims and determined that, yet again, someone who publicly claimed to be the victim of a hate crime was not, in fact, a victim.
KEPR-TV News reported Tuesday that police determined Lopez sent the letter to himself and that Lopez verbally and in a written statement admitted to fabricating the letter.
Lopez’s case has been referred to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s Office to charge the former politician with filing a false police report, which is just a Class A misdemeanor in the state.
Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston told KEPR that Lopez’s actions added tension to a country currently dealing with racial protests.
“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today.” Edmiston said. “As a lifelong resident of this diverse community, I’m disgusted someone would try to carelessly advance their personal ambitions at the risk of others.”
Lopez’s legal troubles, however, are far from over.
In addition to the misdemeanor, Lopez is now under investigation for potential election fraud related to the Stolen Valor Act of 2013. KEPR reported Lopez may have presented false credentials while running for county commissioner.
“Additionally, the Hermiston Police are sending the Office of the District Attorney verifiable information of potential election fraud as it pertains to the Stolen Valor Act of 2013 and other false credentials presented by Mr. Lopez during his run for county commissioner. This in conjunction with a lengthy criminal history record may result in the filing of additional charges,” the outlet reported.
