When you buy stock in a private company, if the company prospers, you get quarterly dividend checks. If you decide to cash in your shares, you get their current worth, less broker’s fees, but no more dividend checks, and you have to pay taxes on it.
Race hoaxes are so much better. There’s no initial investment, and if the hoax is successful, you profit forever. And sometimes, evildoers will even revive a failed hoax.
In 2014, with the support of Scribner’s, a once glorious publishing house, and Vanity Fair Editor Graydon Carter, a once reputable gatekeeper, a high-priced Lügenpresse operative named William D. Cohan revived the Duke Rape Hoax in a 672-page book, The Price of Silence: The Duke Lacrosse Scandal, the Power of the Elite, and the Corruption of Our Great Universities, that few people read. In his bibliography and footnote-free doorstop, Cohan treated disgraced, criminal DA Mike Nifong and career criminal (prostitute, convicted robber, attempted murderer, murderer) and pathological liar Crystal Gale Mangum as veritable oracles of truth, while treating all the credible witnesses as if they were notorious liars.
The most successful revived race hoax was the Sally Hemings Hoax. Loosed upon the world in 1802 by James Thomson Callender, the patron saint of press/race hoaxes, the hoax asserted that the third President had sired a child with one of his slaves. [“Giving Thomas Jefferson the Business: The Sally Hemings Hoax,” by Nicholas Stix, Middle American News, December 2003.]
Callender, a convicted seditionist whom newly elected President Jefferson had just released from prison, sought unsuccessfully to blackmail Jefferson into appointing him to the job of postmaster of Richmond. (Blackmail was Callender’s m.o. He had no real stories to publish, but threatened to create scandals out of whole cloth. Sound familiar?)
Callender’s hoax had few takers in its day, but was during the past generation revived by Hollywood and numerous leftwing academics, most notoriously NYU law professor Annette Gordon-Reed, who was rewarded for her hoax by Harvard, which granted her an endowed chair in its law school, and title as a historian.
Jefferson proved to be potent beyond the grave, having gone from siring one child of Hemings while alive to six, or even seven, according to some hoaxers (never mind that Hemings only bore six children during her life), after his death, though Gordon-Reed was satisfied with six fake children.
The most monetarily successful race hoax of the past 50 years has been the “Central Park Five” hoax.
Originally, the incident was known as the “Central Park Jogger Case.” On April 19, 1989, investment banker Trisha Meili, 28, went out for her nightly run along the Central Park reservoir, but was set upon by a black-and-Hispanic mob of at least eight teenagers, either all at once, or in separate, consecutive attacks. They raped and beat her within an inch of her life. She lost over 70% of her blood, was in a coma for 12 days, and her doctors did not expect her to live. (At the time, Meili was known to whites as “the Central Park Jogger,” but blacks knew her name as “Patricia Meili,” because the black supremacist press published her name every week. In 2002, Meili publicly revealed her name.)
Most of the attackers were brought in. Some were found hanging around the park, and most of them made self-incriminating statements, as well as incriminating accomplices and other suspects.
One suspect (Steven Lopez, 15), who made no self-incriminating statements to detectives regarding the attack on the Jogger, was permitted to take a plea bargain to a lesser charge for another crime that night. In another case (Clarence Thomas, 14), different reports as to its disposition contradict each other.
“A plea bargain to a lesser charge”? Well, you see, the attackers didn’t just attack Trisha Meili. They brutally beat nine, mostly white parkgoers that night in what I’m tempted to call an orgy of violence, but what they did to Trisha Meili alone was an orgy of violence.
Meili’s rapist-attackers were part of a mob of over 30 racist, black and Hispanic sociopaths who had gone to the Park to wreak mayhem on whites.
All of the group of five that would be convicted of raping and beating Meili confessed to their crimes. (They thought they were not confessing to the rape when they said they held the victim down while others raped her.) The most violent one, Yusuf Salaam, 15, bragged, “It was fun. It was something to do.”
(Note: In my day, what Salaam did was called a “confession.” Already in 1989, however, an admission of guilt no longer counted as a legal confession, unless you signed it, and/or confessed on videotape, both of which Salaam refused to do.)
The “mainstream” (white-owned) New York media actually did a decent job covering the crime in 1989, and the two 1990 trials (two perps in one and three in the other). The investigation was the NYPD’s finest hour.
The black supremacist New York City press waged war on the white victim, from the get-go, constantly printing her name, and during the perps’ 1990 trials, their supporters would vilify her on the street, as she limped to the courthouse. (The perps inflicted permanent brain damage on Trisha Meili.) “The boyfriend did it!” “She did it to herself!” “White slut!” “Filthy white whore!”
Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusuf Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise were all duly convicted and did time, though not enough for my taste.
At both 1990 trials, the prosecutors declared that the semen found in Meili’s cervix and on one of her socks was from an unknown, additional rapist. That semen was identified in 2002 as being from imprisoned murderer and serial rapist, Matias Reyes.
Even three years after his heinous crimes, in a prison interview on CBS’ 60 Minutes, Yusuf Salaam implied that Meili was “faking her injuries.”
As soon as the five attackers who would be convicted were arrested, the black supremacist press’ and activists’ hoax machinery heated up. However, once they were convicted, not only did the usual suspects fight on for the rapists, but they got more and more of a hearing in city newsrooms. Presumably, that was due to the mix of black supremacists and genocidal white racists increasingly at home there, and the white feminists, militant homosexualists, and Hispanic reconquistas who supported them. The rapists’ supporters changed the name of the case from “The Central Park Jogger Case” to “The Central Park Five.”
Plus, you had a corrupt, anti-white, obituary-shopping Manhattan DA, Robert Morgenthau (1919-2019), who had never cared about justice, and a Morgenthau deputy, Nancy Ryan, who hated the guts of the since-retired Linda Fairstein, who as Sex Crimes bureau chief had run the Central Park Jogger prosecution. Ryan was still obsessed with destroying Fairstein.
In 2002, after the statute of limitations had passed, convicted murderer and serial rapist Matias Reyes came forward to claim sole offender status in the Central Park attacks. Reyes proved to be the owner of the unidentified semen, but otherwise was delusional and dishonest.
And so, although they had already served their time, Morgenthau asked Justice Charles Tejada to vacate the convicted rapists’ convictions and sentences. In doing so without an evidentiary hearing, Tejada violated all judicial precedent. The New York media then lied, and said the confessed rapists had been “exonerated,” which would have required re-trials and acquittals all around.
Immediately, the rapists sued. They never got a dime, as long as Mike Bloomberg was mayor (2002 through 2013). He fought the shakedown tooth-and-nail. But communist Bill de Blasio got elected in 2013. He had promised to rape New York City’s white and Asian net taxpayers on behalf of the rapists and their black supremacist ambulance chasers. And so, he gladly forked over $41 million in taxpayer money, and then, inexplicably, the State of New York stuffed yet another $3.9 million in white and Asian net taxpayers’ money in the rapists’ pockets.
No honest person who ever studied the case (like those of us who were around here at the time) would say the rapists had been wronged.
But honest people are a dying breed in New York City. Instead, the loudest voices are evil racists like white communist Mayor de Blah Blah Blah, and black supremacist Ava DuVernay, who created a fictional Netflix mini-series depicting the rapists as the raped, When They See Us.
The memories of “the beasts in the park” were so strong that when another black-dominated mob (the rest were Hispanic) molested, and in some cases manually raped white women in Central Park on June 11, 2000, during the Puerto Rican Day Parade, millions of people immediately thought of Central Park attacks of April 19, 1989.
Parkgoers videoed the attacks, including one rape, and gave them to the media and the NYPD.
One heroic figure was Bronx Borough President and mayoral candidate, Fernando “Freddie” Ferrer, who condemned the attackers.
However, the dozens of arrests of suspects in the days after June 11, 2000, were soon all “disappeared,” the rapists never tracked down, and except for two dozen cops complaining to reporters under cover of anonymity that the NYPD brass had ordered them to give black and Hispanic sociopaths carte blanche that day, the entire matter swept under the rug.
Feminist leaders and elected officials like NOW President Patricia Ireland and Cong. Carolyn Maloney were particularly complicit in the evil. They condemned not the attackers, but the NYPD, because the majority of the cops in the vicinity were white.
Feminists have almost always left real female victims to twist in the wind, while rushing to support hoaxers.
Feminists, black supremacists, leftists and media operatives all have Tessa Majors’ blood on their hands.
