Shreveport Times: Police Believe Winnsboro Woman Set Herself On Fire

The Shreveport Times is reporting that police are expected to announce that a Winnsboro woman set herself on fire and made up her story about being the victim of a hate crime.

Sharmeka Moffitt told police she was attacked while walking in a park in Winnsboro Sunday night. She claimed three men doused her with a flammable liquid, set her on fire, and wrote racial slurs on her car.

Moffitt, 20, is in critical condition at a hospital in Shreveport with burns covering 60% of her body.

Yep. These things are almost always hoaxes.

It won’t stop people from believing it of course. There will still be a march and a vigil and a “stop the hate” rally...

Set herself on fire to help Obama, another October surprise that the media is running with. This is to guilt trip people into voting for Obama

I love it when fascists self-immolate.

Now, bill her and her accomplices for the firecrews.

If racism did not exist, it would be necessary for professional victims to invent it.

Few here were surprised, but a lot of my Rat friends on facebook sure were when I first doubted it and then less than an hour later was vindicated.

Oh good... Another fake "hate crime" to add to my list:

Hate Crime Hoaxes

Claremont Hate Crime Called Hoax
LA Times (FR thread) | March 17. 2004 | Joy Buchanan, Kristina Sauerwein and Stuart Silverstein

A week after a reported campus hate crime drew national attention, sparked protests and shut down the prestigious Claremont Colleges, police on Wednesday called the incident a hoax staged by a professor who slashed tires, shattered windows and spray-painted racist graffiti on her own car.

Claremont McKenna College psychology professor Kerri Dunn, who had told police that her car was vandalized as she spoke at a March 9 forum on racism, was identified by two eyewitnesses as the person who damaged the auto, authorities said Wednesday.

Professor Kerri Dunn vandalized her own car and then led "Stop The Hate" rallies on campus.

"Sharmeka"

It's a variation of "Me A Shark," a popular Kenyan name.

Moffitt, 20, is in critical condition at a hospital in Shreveport with burns covering 60% of her body.

I pray that this young, albeit, disturbed girl lives.

But also remember that this kind of sociopathy that has been fostered by the left will cost us, not only in keeping her alive, but for years in treating her wounds and for other who will be brainwashed into similar acts as hers. And all for no reason other than the propaganda they have been feed for political reasons.

For the hard-core lefties who happen to follow this site. I have to ask;

Is to toll you take on the uninformed drones you recruit pursuing your Marxist Utopia really worth the human tool you leave behind?

I'm guessing that Bill Ayres would answer in the affirmative

It would only be sick if someone else had set her on fire. Since she torched herself... well. :P

“f racism did not exist, it would be necessary for professional victims to invent it.”

There are worse things in the world than racism but try telling that to a liberal racist.
