Yet Another Phony Hate Crime

Posted by Dave Blount at August 17, 2009 3:14 PM

Still more pernicious phoniness from the left, as belatedly reported by CNN:

An African-American man has pleaded guilty after being accused of impersonating a white supremacist in a fictitious Facebook account to make death threats against an African-American university student.
Dyron L. Hart, 20, of Poplarville, Mississippi, pleaded guilty Wednesday before U.S. District Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt to one count of communicating threats in interstate commerce, according to a Department of Justice statement.
Hart admitted creating the fictitious account in November, pretending to be a white supremacist outraged by the election of Barack Obama as the nation's first African-American president, the statement said.
He then transmitted a death threat via Facebook to an African-American student at Nicholls State University in Louisiana, saying he wanted to kill African-Americans because of Obama's election, according to the statement.

This isn't exactly news. Sweetness & Light reported on it last November, drawing on local sources.

At least CNN is trying its hapless best to keep up. But it still doesn't have all the pertinent facts — like these:

Repeatedly using an obscenity and the N-word, the author of the message threatens to kill more than 3,000 black people in a month because of Obama's election and warns the recipient of a pending attack from "a random white man," according to the agent's affidavit.

Good thing Hart isn't a real white racist. Mainstream journalists would have worked themselves into early graves trying to fit 25-hour-a-day coverage of the story into 24-hour days.
