Racist Note That Set Off Campus Chaos at St. Olaf College Was a Hoax

When mobs of black hooligans brought learning to a halt at St. Olaf College recently, it was observed that the racist note primarily responsible for setting off the belligerence was almost certainly a hoax. Sure enough:

A racist threat against a St. Olaf student that touched off campuswide protests and forced the college to cancel classes earlier this month was a hoax, the school revealed Wednesday.

A student confessed to writing the note, St. Olaf President David R. Anderson wrote in a message to students. The threat — an anonymous, typewritten note — was “fabricated,” he said, as an apparent “strategy to draw attention to concerns about the campus climate.”

As we have seen repeatedly, hoaxes are good for raising awareness about nonexistent problems that can be used to advance militant agendas.

Have the moonbats who run everything learned from this experience? Of course not. See how it’s reported:

For some students, a fake threat doesn’t change the reality of racism, or the positive changes they’ve seen on campus since the protests — including a task force the university pledged to set up to address minority student concerns.

“It’s started something good,” said Daniel Katuka. The St. Olaf senior, who is black, said he hasn’t encountered the sort of racism on campus that he’s experienced in the outside world. But he appreciated the St. Olaf community coming together “in a positive way” in the face of an apparent threat.

Mission accomplished, despite the hoax having been revealed. Awareness of the conspicuously nonexistent oppression endured by privileged blacks has been raised.

Student organizers who this month called for sweeping changes on campus to address a string of reported incidents involving racist messages targeting black students, said Wednesday that they don’t know the identity of the hoaxer. But they say their protest went beyond any single incident.

Single incident? SINGLE INCIDENT?!?!?!

“Our movement wasn’t about one individual,” said Precious Ismail, a spokeswoman for the campus group, the Coalition for Change on the Hill. “Our movement was about a pattern of institutional racism.”

At the risk of stating the obvious, Precious is full of crap. Institutional racism is whites and Asians being denied admission into college so that the positions can be given to less qualified blacks. The only pattern we see here is this one.

Incidentally, although the university refuses to make it official, we have a pretty good idea who the hoaxer is.

On April 29, St. Olaf senior Samantha Wells, who is black, posted images on social media of a threatening note she said she had found on her windshield. Wells was a featured speaker at campus rallies this month, tearfully relaying the discovery of the note and how unsafe it made her feel on campus.

Despite her grandstanding, Wells was unwilling to file a criminal report, and she burned the note, conveniently destroying the evidence. Police have closed their investigation.

Somehow life goes on for the put-upon victim of racist oppression. She is graduating soon, and will be leaving for Europe next month.

Wells is unsurprisingly into politics. She was Community Outreach Organizer of the Northfield Chapter for Bernie Sanders and of St. Olaf College for Sanders. She will go far.

Is it too soon to talk about Samantha Wells for POTUS?
