For the uninitiated, Oberlin College is a bastion of leftwing social justice and leftover 60’s flower children, located about 35 miles south of Cleveland in Oberlin, Ohio.
The latest artificial outrage involves a mysterious sighting of a figure dressed in a KKK robe lurking on campus in the dead of night.
Sunceray Tavler, a student at the college, claimed she saw “what seemed to be someone in KKK paraphernalia walking around”, while driving her car at 0130 in the morning.
When campus police arrived they didn’t find anyone fitting that description, but they did say they later saw a student wrapped in a blanket, and that the witness ‘could have been mistaken’.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that Sunceray has a real vivid imagination.
Conservative author and pundit Michelle Malkin is a 1992 graduate of the college, and for the life of me I can’t understand how the hell she put up with all the liberal moonbats.
In a commentary about the latest string of hoaxes at the college, she notes that during her attendance there, the institution was rife with bed-wetting race-baiters:
Back in the 1990s, race-obsessed nutballs at Oberlin College in Ohio cooked up a horrid hate crime hoax. Asian-American students claimed that a phantom racist had spray-painted anti-Asian racial epithets on a campus landmark rock. Turned out that it was a warped Asian-American student who perpetrated the dirty deed. Whoops. Never mind.
Student newspapers were filled with complaints about imaginary racism. One Asian-American student accused a library worker of racism after the poor staffer asked the grievance-mongering student to lower the blinds where she was studying. A black student accused an ice cream shop owner of racism after he told the student she was not allowed to sit at an outside table because she hadn’t purchased any items from his store.
According to the Oberlin Review (a student newspaper I once wrote for), anti-black and anti-gay vandalism/”hate speech” have plagued the campus since Feb. 9.
“‘Whites Only’ was written above a water fountain, ‘N*gger Oven’ was written inside the elevator, and ‘No N*ggers’ was written on a bathroom door” at one dormitory, according to the publication.
Swastikas and epithets were drawn on posters around the school. Activists implied the incidents were tied to Black History Month. The final straw? A menacing presence on campus who allegedly donned a “KKK hood” and robe near the segregated black dormitory known as “Afrikan Heritage House.”
Oberlin President Marvin Krislov and three college deans ostentatiously published an “open letter” announcing the administration’s decision to “suspend formal classes and non-essential activities.” The campus body immediately jumped to conclusions and indulged in collective grievance-mongering. The New York Times, Black Entertainment Television and The Associated Press all piled on with angst-ridden coverage of the puzzling crimes at one of the first U.S. colleges to admit blacks and women.
Oberlin alumna Lena Dunham, a cable TV celebrity who starred in a pro-Obama ad likening her vote for him to losing her virginity, took to Twitter to rally her fellow “Obies.” The Associated Press dutifully reported Dunham’s plea as news: “Hey, Obies, remember the beautiful, inclusive and downright revolutionary history of the place you call home. Protect each other.”
But what the AP public relations team for Dunham and the Oberlin mau-mau-ers didn’t report is the rest of the story.
While Blame Righty propagandists bemoaned the frightening persistence of white supremacy in the tiny town of Oberlin, city police told a local reporter that eyewitnesses saw no one in KKK garb — but instead saw a pedestrian wearing a blanket. Yes, the dreaded Assault Blanket of Phantom Bias.
Moreover, after arresting two students involved in the spate of hate messages left around campus, police say “it is unclear if they were motivated by racial hatred or — as has been suggested — were attempting a commentary on free speech.”
A couple of students pulled a stunt to get the self-appointed victims of every conceived racial incident, all fired up. They succeeded. Congratulations.
As for the Linus in a Blanket sighting, it’s also a fake. You can bet your ass Tavler made up that shit and will never admit to it. The academic intelligentsia at Oberlin feeds this kind of hysteria and like their comrades in the Dem party, they need to keep their ranks full of perpetually outraged sycophants to justify their existence.
Since they’re so sensitive to ‘racism’, I want to know when these little LeftProgs plan on holding a Demonstration of Solidarity for all the black Republican/Tea Party members who are insulted and slandered as “house niggas”, “oreos”, and “Uncle Toms” by the racist pigs in the DemLeft media and political arena.
I won’t hold my fuckin’ breath.
