From the original story:
Calgary film producer Chris Ball is coming back from America’s presidential election with five staples holding together the gash on top of his head.
Ball spent the evening in a Santa Monica, Calif. bar watching poll results come in. As the election progressed, he said attitudes in the bar became more and more heated – on both sides of the campaign.
“People started launching homophobic slurs at me from afar,” he said. “I mean, I kind of got into it, but I didn’t want to provoke them.”
They were saying things like, ‘We got a new president you f–king faggots.’
When he later left the bar, alone, he was walking through an alley when he was jumped by a group of men – one of which smashed a bottle over his head.
He fell back, his head smashing against the concrete, where he blacked out.
Not to worry; Ball assures us that he is “in pretty good spirits” and “still very gay.”
Santa Monica police may not be in such good spirits, having been sent on a hate hoax goose chase. From the SMPD Facebook page:
You may have seen an unconfirmed story regarding a possible hate crime incident involving a “Chris Ball” alleging he was assaulted in Santa Monica on election night, November 8, by “Trump Supporters”.
The Santa Monica Police Department and the City of Santa Monica have not received any information indicating this crime occurred in the City of Santa Monica. We encourage the alleged victim to come forward and work with us if a crime did in fact take place. A check of local hospitals revealed there was no victim of any such incident admitted or treated as well.
Evidently Ball really was treated for a head wound; he provided a hospital discharge form from West Hills as evidence. It takes the better part of an hour to drive from Santa Monica to West Hills. That’s it for evidence to support his tale of oppression, which stinks on ice.
There is also precious little evidence that Trump is hostile to gays or even opposes their agenda. Quite the reverse:
Donald Trump went as far as to wave the rainbow flag at a rally in Colorado before the election. And not only invited the first openly gay man to speak at the Republican National Convention (on the main stage during primetime, no less), but addressed gay voters directly during his RNC nomination acceptance speech, as he had since the tragedy at the Pulse nightclub a month before. Hell, Trump was first invited to CPAC by a gay conservatives group in 2011.
In the past, when progs were caught in their frauds, they would pretend that their hoaxes are true in some kind of symbolic political sense. Now even that extremely tenuous relationship with reality has been lost.
