The Daily Caller has an incredible story today, revealing the truth behind the alleged spree of “hate crimes” that took place at Oberlin College earlier this year. Tuns out, the whole affair was an elaborate hoax, carried out by a pair of radical left-wing Democrats, who are outspoken supporters of president Obama.
Chuck Ross reports for the DC:
One of the two students removed from Oberlin College earlier this year for allegedly circulating virulently racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages around campus is an ardent leftist and committed supporter of President Obama, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
Dylan Bleier, one of the two students, hosted a voter registration drive in a Walmart parking lot sponsored by Organizing for Action, the community organizing project that advances the agenda of President Obama.
The Oberlin Police Department identified Bleier and his partner in the spree, Matt Alden, as two of the principal architects of a month-long spate of racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages at the small, private campus…
Bleier also describes himself on Twitter as an “atheist/pacifist/environmentalist/libertarian socialist/consequentialist.”
The progressive school canceled all classes for a day in a mad scramble to address the alleged hate-related incidents the campus. The saga culminated in a report of a person wearing a hood and robe resembling a KKK outfit near the Afrikan Heritage House, according to Oberlin’s president Marvin Krislov in a letter also signed by three deans…
The FBI also opened an investigation into the spate of hateful messages. Reached Wednesday, the FBI’s Cleveland office told TheDCNF that it could not comment on the case…
Cornell University law professor William Jacobson, who tracked the Oberlin story at his blog Legal Insurrection, said the fraudulent hate-related incidents “may be the greatest race hoax since Tawana Brawley.”
Jacobson has unsuccessfully reached out to Oberlin officials for comment on the incidents on several occasions.
“Oberlin allowed the entire country to go through months of handwringing over supposedly racist incidents knowing full well it was a hoax,” Jacobson told TheDCNF.

This sad, sorry saga at Oberlin is just the latest in a long line of hate crime hoaxes perpetuated by left wing Democrats on our college campuses. Somehow, they feel they stand to gain by making our campuses out to be hotbeds of racism. And, somehow, no matter how many times they get caught–they still keep doing it. Maybe it’s because the mainstream media and academic administrators are always so quick to fall for it.
Apparently, they’ve never heard of the boy who cried wolf.
