NFL Gives Apparent Hate Hoax Second Life

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Hate hoaxes are so common because they are an effective means of acquiring sympathetic attention — sometimes even after they have been exposed.

Readers will recall that Althea Bernstein claimed to have been set on fire by racist white frat boys during a black supremacist riot in Madison last June. Unsurprisingly, authorities found it impossible to corroborate her story, though they certainly tried.

For being oppressed, Althea got to be queen for 15 minutes. Meghan Markle and her adjutant Prince Harry called her on the telephone. Good Morning America featured her for adoration.

The party couldn’t last forever. Via Breitbart:

By October 2, the Madison Police Department released a statement, saying, “after an exhaustive probe, detectives were unable to corroborate or locate evidence consistent with what was reported.”

The case was also investigated by the FBI and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Both agencies agreed with the local police. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Wisconsin ultimately said that “after reviewing all available evidence, authorities could not establish that the attack, as alleged by the complainant, had occurred.”

After that, press access to Althea was cut off, presumably to guard against the remote possibility that anyone from the mainstream media would follow up after her story had collapsed. Her 15 minutes were over.

Or maybe not:

[A]lmost two weeks after Bernstein’s case was dismissed by every agency that investigated her claims, the NFL was pushing the young woman as an example of “inspiring change.”

Why not? If Nike could pass off Colin Kaepernick as an athlete who sacrificed his career for leftist politics (he was a fading benchwarmer before he started with the kneeling theatrics), the NFL can present Althea Bernstein as an inspirational victim of racism. Beggars can’t be choosers when it comes to finding support for the Black Lives Matter narrative.
