Hate Crime Hoaxer Charlie Rogers Found Guilty
Usually liberals manage to diffuse the consequences of their moonbattery across the entire population, but occasionally they are forced to pay the piper themselves. For example:
A Nebraska woman who claimed she was attacked by three men who carved anti-gay slurs into her arms and stomach was found guilty Monday of making a false report.
Charlie Rogers, a former University of Nebraska basketball star, entered a no contest plea… The 34-year-old could face up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine when sentenced in February. …
Police believe she faked the attack because she believed it would spark change.
That is, she wanted to give the media something to work with in its war on normalcy. This earns Rogers a secure spot on the hate crime hoax dishonor list, which among many others includes:
• 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
Shortly before her phony attack she announced on Facebook:
“So maybe I am too idealistic, but I believe way deep inside me that we can make things better for everyone. I will be a catalyst. I will do what it takes. I will. Watch me.”
If only all liberal idealists inflicted their damage mainly on themselves.
