Oberlin Hate Crime Hoax of the Year

"Tenured cultural Marxist punks raking in beaucoup bucks"???? Is that a George Gollin reference? George Gollin sent his um-daughter to Oberlin. Notorious gay boy pornographer Thomas "Chip" White attended Oberlin. Quite the little cesspool of fraud and fuckery.

Quote:How Oberlin Manufactured the Hate-Crime Hoax of the Year

Busted. Stone-cold busted. Just as I suspected, "progressive" pranksters at [regionally accredited] Oberlin College have been definitively unmasked as the perpetrators of phony campus "hate crimes" that scored international headlines in March. The blabbermouth academic administrators who helped fuel the hysteria are now running for cover.

The Associated Press, The New York Times, MSNBC, Yahoo News and the Huffington Post were among the media outlets that trumpeted the story of supposed racism, homophobia and anti-Semitism run amok at my alma mater. Throughout the winter, anti-black and anti-gay graffiti, swastikas, and a shadowy figure in a "KKK hood" surfaced on the tiny campus outside Cleveland, Ohio. Black Entertainment Television News decried the hate outbreaks and "KKK sighting."

Because of my firsthand knowledge of Oberlin's long history of self-manufactured hate-crime incidents, the fake-hate-crime alarm bells went off immediately for me when I read the reports. Back in the 1990s, race-obsessed nutballs at Oberlin College 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. It turned out that it was a warped Asian-American student who perpetrated the dirty deed.

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.

My suspicions about the latest "hate" crime were bolstered by police statements that the "KKK hood"-wearing menace was actually a female student wrapped in a blanket. Hollywood darling and Oberlin alumnus Lena Dunham was undaunted, however, in ginning up emotional calls for Obie solidarity on Twitter, which the AP dutifully reported as "news." My warnings and reports on previous Obie hoaxes, alas, were not deemed AP-newsworthy.

The orgy of self-flagellation swelled. Liberal grievance-mongers applauded the administration's decision to shut down classes. Faculty, students and opportunists took to the airwaves and the Internet to bemoan "white privilege," institutional bigotry, lack of diversity, yada, yada, yada.

And now, the rest of the story. According to police reports published by Chuck Ross of The Daily Caller News Foundation this week, two students had 'fessed up to most of the incidents (and fellow students suspect they are responsible for all of them). The Oberlin Police Department identified the hoaxers as Dylan Bleier (a student worker bee for President Obama's Organizing for Action and a member of the Oberlin College Democrats) and Matthew Alden. Bleier told police the pair posted inflammatory signs and a Nazi flag around campus to "joke" and "troll" their peers.

Investigators "caught them red-handed" trying to circulate anti-Muslim fliers, and a search of Bleier's email confirmed he had used a fake account to harass a female student. Cops told Oberlin President Marvin Krislov, but he failed to pursue any criminal action. The two students were removed from campus before the bogus "KKK" brouhaha and news-making shutdown.

Krislov not only remained silent about the two pranksters, but he also stoked the fires of political correctness and helped fuel the false notion that real bigotry had pervaded the campus. The spring edition of the Oberlin College alumni magazine opened with a self-congratulatory essay from Krislov titled "A Fitting Response."

After perversely bragging about the "national and international news" headlines on the "bias incidents (that) disrupted our campus community," Krislov clucked that "similar things have occurred at other colleges." Which, of course, is inadvertently true. As I've reported for 20 years, American college campuses are the most fertile grounds for fake hate.

Krislov then praised "students, faculty, staff, alumni and fellow Oberlin residents" who "turned hate into an opportunity to educate." Of course, "hate" had nothing to do with it. And the police reports suggest that Krislov knew it. The rash of "intolerance" that littered the Oberlin campus was a symptom of juvenile delinquency and perverse self-delusion. Instead of examining their guilt in coddling hate-crime hoaxers, Krislov giddily promoted new efforts "strengthening the emphasis on diversity."

There are other adults who deserve to be called out. As Cornell law professor and blogger William Jacobson, who has pressed the administration for months about the cover-up, notes: "Oberlin continues the wall of silence which delayed for months disclosure of the hoax. It's time for Oberlin to reveal who knew what, and when, particularly as to the oversight exercised by the Board of Trustees."

Sad to say, this is the sorry state of liberal arts colleges in America today: Extreme identity politics, multiculturalism and pedagogical self-indulgence are creating a generation of race trolls enabled by tenured cultural Marxist punks raking in beaucoup bucks. The bursting of the higher-ed bubble can't come fast enough.

Quote:Oberlin College Attempts to Silence Journalists over Critical Reporting

Oberlin College has recently taken legal action as part of their effort to silence journalism by website Legal Insurrection that has portrayed the school in a negative light.

Legal Insurrection, an online legal blog and news site, reported this week that Oberlin College has filed a subpoena against the site, demanding its communications with confidential sources for the site’s past reporting on the college. The subpoena primarily focuses on a Legal Insurrection report about Gibson’s Bakery, which filed a lawsuit against the college after college officials encouraged students to boycott the bakery.

Quote:In addition to the issues listed above, Legal Insurrection also has reported on a dispute between Oberlin College and a local bakery, Gibson’s Bakery, in Oberlin, Ohio. Legal Insurrection has reported on the arrest of three African-American Oberlin College students at the bakery for shoplifting, protests by students, faculty and staff of Oberlin College alleging racial profiling, boycotts of Gibson’s by the Oberlin College community including by the college itself, Oberlin town community reaction to the protests, the eventual conviction of the three students, and a lawsuit brought by Gibson’s Bakery against Oberlin College and its Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo.

The College has decided that they should request the communications between Gibson’s Bakery and Legal Insurrection. The site reports that if the legal system grants such information to the school, it would significantly impede on their ability to report on the college in the future.

Breitbart News reported this week that Oberlin College is facing “negative” ratings from credit agencies, potentially as a result of their sympathies for social justice activism. At the end of June, the Bond Buyer reported that the left-wing college was facing financial issues as a result of decreased enrollment.

Strange how there are more fake racists than real ones. I am not sure I know any real racists. I know a lot of people who are pissed off with politics of race. Communists likely consider someone who objects to racial politics as racist but they're assholes.

Fundamental Alinsky tactic.  Divide on racial grounds.  The antithesis of Christianity, which brings people of various beliefs and backgrounds together rather than dividing them.

Another Oberlin fail.  Who sends their kids to this leftist toilet?

Oberlin College has withdrawn a subpoena seeking journalistic communications from a conservative website that has reported extensively on race hoaxes and social-justice activism at the Ohio liberal arts college.

The news outlet, Legal Insurrection, sought a court order protecting its communications on July 5, and Oberlin’s counsel withdrew the subpoena on Wednesday.

William A. Jacobson, a professor at Cornell Law School and the editor of the Legal Insurrection blog, said the subpoena posed a threat to the freedom of press.

“Allowing persons or entities that have been the subject of news reporting to pry into the communications of the journalists covering them will have a chilling effect on the ability of journalists to report on matters of public interest,” Mr. Jacobson said in a statement. “That is why the law, at least in New York, protects journalist records.”

Oberlin sought communications between Legal Insurrection and sources related to the website’s reporting on the lawsuit between the school and Gibson’s Bakery.

The bakery sued Oberlin last year after students, faculty and staff allegedly waged a “public relations campaign” against the store, accusing it of racially profiling three Oberlin students who were caught shoplifting on Nov. 9, 2016.

All three students would go on to plead guilty to charges of attempted theft and aggravated trespassing. Each student read a statement in court acknowledging that the bakery’s actions were not racially motivated.

In the wake of the arrests, Oberlin students launched protests and boycotts against the bakery.

The lawsuit contends that the administration encouraged the actions of the students, despite a police investigation that found a “complete lack of any evidence of racism.”

The college canceled its contract with Gibson’s Bakery following the protests. Business relations were later reinstated, but canceled again after the bakery filed the lawsuit.

In a Nov. 11 letter to the student body, President Marvin Krislov and Dean of Students Meredith Raimondo suggested there was “more to the story than what has been generally reported.”

“We are dedicated to a campus and community that treats all faculty, staff and students fairly and without discrimination,” they wrote in the letter. “We expect that our community businesses and friends share the same values and commitments.”

Members of the Oberlin faculty and staff also allegedly circulated a flyer calling for a boycott, which said Gibson’s Bakery is a “RACIST establishment with a LONG ACCOUNT of RACIAL PROFILING and DISCRIMINATION.”

Prospective students on campus tours were also allegedly told not to shop at Gibson’s Bakery because it is a “racist establishment” that “assaults students.”

In the lawsuit, Gibson’s Bakery said Oberlin was attempting to “bully and financially strangle a century-old local business for refusing to succumb to the College’s demand that Gibson’s ignore student shoplifting.”

Oberlin denied the allegation and said it would fight the lawsuit.

Why would a parent allow a child anywhere near Oberlin much less give them money? Do they really want their baby to grow up to be a queer communist?
