Hate Hoax at Vassar College
Small liberal arts colleges like Vassar College are impregnable bastions of progressivism, but even they witness terrible outbreaks of abusive political incorrectness — fake ones, of course:
Reports of bias incidents at Vassar College that involved hateful messages left on students’ doors were actually elaborate hoaxes – and the perpetrator is none other than the student member of the Bias Incident Response Team, The Daily Caller has learned.
This fall semester at the liberal arts college in New York saw a curiously high number of bias incident reports. On Nov. 14, the college sent a mass email to students advising them that Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT) had received at least six reports in the last few months of hateful and insensitive messages being scrawled and spray painted on student residences. Messages included “Avoid Being Bit**es,” “F**k Ni**ers,” and most prominently, “Hey Tranny. Know Your Place.”
“This is unacceptable and members of our community should be able to learn and work in environments that are free of hurtful expressions and behaviors,” wrote Edward Pittman, BIRT coordinator and dean of the College for Campus Life and Diversity, in an email to students.
The email also outlined BIRT’s purpose and role in bias incident response. The task force receives the reports of bias incidents, meets with victims, and provides support for campus efforts to foster diversity and inclusion.
The task force had one student member: Genesis Hernandez, who is transgendered and was also a vice president of the Vassar Student Association (VSA), the student government.
The hoax was perpetuated by two students. One of them was Genesis Hernandez.
Congrats, Genesis. You may be a freakazoid, but at least you get your name added to this partial but ever-expanding hate hoax list:

The frequency of hate hoaxes attests to the rarity of the “victim” groups set upon pedestals of privilege by the liberal ruling class ever having to endure even nonphysical abuse. If these events actually happened on a regular basis, there would be no need to stage them.
