Liberal student activist threatened herself with rape in Facebook hoax to frame conservatives
Daily Mail ^ | May 1, 2013

Posted on 05/01/2013 7:17:58 PM PDT by Pinkbell

A University of Wyoming student targeted by an anonymous Facebook posting that included a threat of sexual violence had posted the item herself, police said.

The university in Laramie, Wyoming announced on Tuesday that campus police cited Meg Lanker-Simons for misdemeanor interference with a police investigation by giving false statements.

The posting that threatened Lanker-Simons occurred on a Facebook forum for UW students, leading to an outcry and an investigation by UW police because it was directed at a student.

The Facebook page, which is not officially affiliated with the university, was taken down and a student-led demonstration against sexual violence was held.

UW police say they found what they called 'substantial evidence' verifying that the post came from the computer belonging to Lanker-Simons.

Lanker-Simons is a blogger and local radio show host who advocates for liberal causes.

In 2010, she filed a lawsuit against the university that forced UW to allow 1960s radical Bill Ayers on the campus for a speech on education.

Ayers co-founded the Weather Underground, an anti-war group from the Vietnam Era that claimed to be responsible for a series of bombings, including nonfatal explosions at the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.

The Facebook post came to light last week when people including Pamela Kandt, co-convener of the Episcopal Women's Caucus and a Casper activist, complained to the university and demanded action.

Besides the threat of sexual assault, the posting was written to make it appear as if its author was a conservative Republican.

Kandt came to Lanker-Simons' defense Tuesday.

'I will tell you, I believe Meg is innocent of this outrage,' Kandt told the Laramie Boomerang, adding she believes the citation issued by police is a 'classic case of blaming the victim.'

'I mean, my God, who would do this to herself?' she added.

Uhhh...Someone who wants attention and wants to make conservatives look bad.

Here is the Facebook posting. Laughing at her husband's response. I wonder if he was in on it. If not, he's going to need to wipe the egg off his face.

“I’ve seen her pic and my question is: who would want to rape that fat, ugly, midget of a liberal toad?”

That was my thought. Once they said feminist, I wasn’t expecting much, and she certainly didn’t disappoint with her ugliness.

But really, really, stupid of her to try that scam. I’m sure the authorities kept saying something like “what kind of person would want to rape you?”, knowing full well that it must be a hoax.

Looking at her wedding picture I think it unlikely that the lib husband wouldn’t be interested in raping her—looking at that picture had my “Gaydar” detector going off the charts for him.

Hopefully, he’ll be brought up on abbeting charges, and the two of these phonies can pay the state of Wyoming and her citizens back for their criminal deciept. Time to double out of state resident tuition. Build a fence!

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.

HOW many times does this hate crime hoax have to happen before someone does some serious jail time?

Instead they ALWAYS get a slap on the wrist, but plenty of media coverage and candlelight vigils first.

Well, it may have been a hoax, but they RAISED AWARENESS!

These hoaxes are so frequent, I immediately think hoax after the first sentence out of their mouths.

The only thing that "surprises" me is that this woman isn't a lesbian.

I would be AMAZED if any member of this caucus has been inside a church for any purpose (other than, perhaps, a pro-abortion rally) in a long, long while.

The thing is, a lot of your casual, low info voters happen to catch it on the news and say, “That’s horrible. That must be true that Republican men don’t like women.” Then, they move on and miss the follow up story, which likely doesn’t get as much attention, and which exposes the lie told in the original story. So mission accomplished in a sense.

What makes me laugh is just how deluded these kooks are when trying to sound "conservative" or what a "conservative" would do.

Yeah I hear the word "kike" ALL the time. Don't you?

This IS 1953 isn't it?

Conservatives are so famous for using epithets that haven't been heard in decades.
