Meg Lanker-Simons: Still Another Hate Hoaxer
Yet another one:
A well-known female liberal blogger and radio host at the University of Wyoming (UW) is being accused by police of fabricating a rape threat against herself to appear as if it came from a conservative.
The obscene message directed at activist Meg Lanker-Simons was posted on a college “crush” Facebook page earlier this week and immediately ignited outrage from the college community.
“I want to hate f**k Meg Lanker-Simons so hard. That chick that runs her liberal mouth all the time and doesn’t care who knows it,” it read. “I think its hot and it makes me angry. One night with me and shes gonna be a good Republican bitch,” the post reads, according to a screenshot.
She wrote the post herself, then apparently escalated her illegitimate attempt at self-promotion all the way to the local police.
But on Monday, The University of Wyoming Police Department issued a citation to Lanker-Simons for “interference” for “false statements she made to the UW Police Department,” according to a UW statement referred to by Laramie Boomerang Online.
“Subject admitted to making a controversial post on UW Crushes webpage and then lied about not doing it,” according to the citation.
Lanker-Simons’s credentials as a moonbat are impressive:
According to a Facebook page that apparently belongs to Lanker-Simons she is a member of the University of Wyoming Gender & Women’s Studies group as well as the school’s chapter of The Nonviolent Communist. …
Lanker-Simons was in the news in 2010 when she was a plaintiff in a successful lawsuit against UW after it retracted its invitation to have Bill Ayers speak on campus.
Bill Ayers is of course the unreconstructed communist terrorist who mentored and launched the political career of the left-wing radical the media has installed in the Oval Office.
Ms. Wanker-Simons can now join the long list of liberal hate hoaxers that includes among others:
• Olander Cuthrell
• Charlie Rogers
• Sharmeka Moffitt
• Joseph Baken
• Alexandra Pennell
• Aimee Whitchurch and Christel Conklin
• Quinn Matney
• Aubriana Banks
• Sarah Marshak
• Tawana Brawley
• Crystal Gail Mangum
• Kerri Dunn
• Leah Miller
• Ahmad Saad Nasim
Hate hoaxes must work, since libs fall back on them so frequently. Maybe for every one that is debunked, many others are passed off as actual hate crimes. But that seems unlikely, since most hate crimes that prove genuine are directed against whites for being white or Jews for being Jews, with neither group having any need to fake hate crimes, which will be ignored by the national media anyway.
Here’s another possibility: given that they are liberals and live in an alternate reality consisting entirely of toxic ideology, it doesn’t matter to them whether the hate crimes are revealed as hoaxes or not. After all, each is symbolically true, in accordance with moonbat dogma. In support of this theory:
Since police cited her, supporters have a constructed a Facebook page entitled “Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent.”
“Meg Lanker-Simons is innocent we believe what she did was justified and deserves not to be held accountable for her accusations we stand behind you sister,” reads that page’s description.
“What she did was justified” would seem to mean, “it’s okay that you are lying; we believe you anyway.” This illustrates why you are wasting your breath to argue with a liberal.
