Hate Crime Hoax Exposed at Vassar College

Former Fix assistant editor Robby Soave has published an investigative report on a series of “hate crimes” at Vassar College. Turns out, it was all an elaborate hoax, carried out by the left-wing leader of the school’s official “Bias Incident Response Team.”

This fall semester at the liberal arts college in New York saw a curiously high number of bias incident reports. On Nov. 14, the college sent a mass email to students advising them that Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT) had received at least six reports in the last few months of hateful and insensitive messages being scrawled and spray painted on student residences. Messages included “Avoid Being Bitches,” “Fuck Niggers,” and most prominently, “Hey Tranny. Know Your Place.”

“This is unacceptable and members of our community should be able to learn and work in environments that are free of hurtful expressions and behaviors,” wrote Edward Pittman, BIRT coordinator and dean of the College for Campus Life and Diversity, in an email to students…

Five days after the email was sent, Vassar President Catharine Hill sent a follow-up email announcing that the bias incidents were hoaxes perpetrated by two students…

One of those students responsible for the hoaxes, Soave reports, is a self-proclaimed transgendered student who goes by the name Genesis Hernandez, who has now been forced to leave the school in disgrace.

    Genesis Hernandez is “transgendered” or a transvestite. In other words, he is a boy who likes to dress up like a girl.

  • Abu Nudnik

    Disgrace? Really? That still exists?

  • obot

    These liberal arts colleges seem to be overrun with KKK members. I didn’t know Nazi skinheads were so interested in liberal arts.

    • mardec

      Uuhhhhh…you got that backwards, obot. Or were you commenting tongue in cheek, as they say? It must be that.

  • jhenjoh

    This is a surprise. When was the last time any of these campus “hate crime” reports for real. None I know of.

  • ModdKenwood

    where there is no bias/discrimination/H8 just invent some…take that lesbian waitress in New Jersey for example…and Matthew Shepherd…WHAT?!

  • Guest

    Vassar was once, long ago, a prominent ladies college, with class and dignity. Guess even that has been lost to the left wing maggots. Shame on the these people.

      What has happened is happening all over America. The university system has clay feet. The price tag means we need to occupy these kids for a few years and as long as the checks clear they get the degree. This is where I’m glad to be at a science and engineering school, but I see the humanities and social science courses are still strong, but our administration is trying to undermine and weaken them to compete with the schools that prefer shallow nonsensical money making courses.

    Hebrews, homosexuals, etc. create false news like this all the time.

      Funniest one is “Hey Tranny,know your place.”. Who the fuck,on this planet, has ever said that besides this one fa gg ot? Who even uses the word “Tranny” other than other fa gg ots? I just call them “fa gg ots”. They aren’t “trans” anything, they’re just mentally-unstable self-mutilating wackos.

      Furthermore, I don’t know of any “place”,in any society,commonly associated with “trannies”,other than the geographical location of San Francisco. It’s so OBVIOUS that a leftist wrote it,because they’re the only ones who even talk like that. “Know your place”. WHAT place? What place is there for a dude who wants to chop his own di ck off,in a modern industrial society,where he will be more of an asset than a liability?

      If someone like me,i.e.an actual opponent of gay mental illness-inspired self-mutilation, wrote one of these “hate messages” (seriously, the problem with our entire modern society is a lack of balls) it would have said, “Hey faggot in a dress, go fuck yourself!”.

      Now THAT’S witty.


    This has been going on at America’s “elite” schools for a long time, it is only now being reported. Usually it is quietly forgotten until the next time. In general these charges are simply accepted at face value by the feminist left. Remember the Duke rape case, that was a national cause on all the media. No surprise that Al Sharpton was there since he “made his bones” with Tawana Brawley. He even promised to pay the “Duke victim’s” way through college even if her story proved to be false. He never did that of course but he can be forgiven since is in jail for murder.

  • Proteios

    The victim mindset cultivated by certain groups is inconsistent with reality. It also cultivates pressure to experience the hate crimes constantly tout edge, but rarely occurring. Meanwhile, we ignore the real murder of hundreds of thousands of Christians at the hands of Muslims. Poverty and sex slavery throughout the world…all to focus on this homosexual activist silliness. Time to open our eyes and see that a lie told often enough actually isn’t the truth.

    I’m surprided the Tranny wasn’t hired for the faculty and granted tenure.

  • marc biff

    Say it isn’t so.

    Genesis, meet Exodus.
