Skip to comments.Malkin: How Oberlin Manufactured the Hate-Crime Hoax of the Year

Busted. Stone-cold busted. Just as I suspected, "progressive" pranksters at 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...

Michelle Malkin called the hate-crime hoax and rips Oberlin College.
Her columns are nearly always worth reading.
When she came on the scene, I said to myself, “She probably can’t spell her own name, but she’s hot, so she has a job.” WRONG! She can WRITE! Her polemic style is right up there with Steyn and Coulter.
I think that the role played by Oberlin College in this race baiting charade leaves no choice but to pull it’s accreditation immediately.
Once again I ask the question, where is the funding coming from and who has the most to gain from a race war in America?
I agree, it’s evident they went along with it. Pull it and force them to have a major house cleaning.
Lena Dunham, there’s a reference.
She’ll be cool until it is discovered that ugly is not a stage of life.
Did the COLLEGE do this hoax or the STUDENTS?
“I think that the role played by Oberlin College in this race baiting charade leaves no choice but to pull its accreditation immediately.”
Oberlin just shot to the top of Obama’s list of colleges as it most surely meets his ‘ratings’ requirements and will receive extra funding in the future.

Michelle Malkin is the crème de la crème of conservative writing and commentary. I hate it when she’s on Hannity’s show he talks over her with his inane comments. She’s at least one or two standard deviations above Hannity on the IQ scale.
And the hotness scale—you’re right, she’s off the charts hot.
Once upon a time she was a FReeper.
Steamy, baby! Steamy!
Also, I saw a dead rat in the gutter the other day who is smarter than Hannity!
I still love her.
She is such a fire ball pointing out hatred of whites racism by libs.
What’s more shocking is Michelle Malkin went to Oberlin...Yikes. That’s one liberal school... Might be why she understands liberals so well... she lived within the heart of the beast...
Why did she leave?
Any chance at getting her back here?
FR is unique. Anywhere. Bring her and some others back.
Oberlin allowed the entire country to go through months of handwringing over supposedly racist incidents knowing full well it was a hoax, Jacobson told The DCNF.
Lena Dunham, unattractive to the point of repulsion!
Are you seriously defending the administration of Oberlin???
If you think the Mormons are effing up the country you ought to meet the sons of b*tches that have perverted the universities of America. This would include the Oberlin academic predators and parasites.
They are truly scum.
Average looking girl, with too many pounds, and too much ink, to be attractive.
But hardly Rosie O’Donnell.
