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.
