At this point, I think it’s safe to say that whenever the secular left claims to be the victim of a hate crime (or hate speech) that we should just assume they’re lying. If a full, impartial investigation finds the “victim” was telling the truth, then we can believe them. But that almost never happens.
Here’s the latest from Outkick:
BYU conducted an investigation looking into allegations made by Duke volleyball player Rachel Richardson that fans hurled racial slurs at her during a match on August 26. The university’s investigation found no evidence to support Richardson’s allegations.
The investigation’s conclusion comes as countless holes have been discovered in regard to the severe allegations made by Richardson. National media outlets blindly supported Richardson’s claims without doing any research. And now, BYU states there is zero evidence of any racial slurs.
[…]The university’s investigation included interviews with more than 50 eyewitnesses including players from both teams and athletic department staff. BYU also stated that it extensively reviewed video and audio from the match.
“From our extensive review, we have not found any evidence to corroborate the allegation that fans engaged in racial heckling or uttered racial slurs at the event,” BYU’s statement read in part. “As we stated earlier, we would not tolerate any conduct that would make a student-athlete feel unsafe. That is the reason for our immediate response and our thorough investigation.”
[…]Outside of Richardson’s godmother, who has a laundry list worth of racist rhetoric on social media, not one person has corroborated her story.
Duke University ignored the evidence, and is maintaining that BYU fans are guilty, guilty, guilty! Duke Vice President and Director of Athletics Nina King released a statement dismissing the evidence:
“The 18 members of the Duke University volleyball team are exceptionally strong women who represent themselves, their families, and Duke University with the utmost integrity,” the statement reads. “We unequivocally stand with and champion them, especially when their character is called into question. Duke Athletics believes in respect, equality and inclusiveness, and we do not tolerate hate and bias.”
You might remember that Duke University has been involved in perpetrating other hate hoaxes. Remember when the single mom stripper complained about being raped by players from the Duke lacrosse team? Duke University, the North Carolina district attorney Mike Nifong, and all the mainstream news media believed the allegations. But there’s just one problem… the woman lied.
New York Post reported:
A Duke University lacrosse player from New Jersey, charged in the rape of a stripper at a team party, has a rock-solid alibi and documents to prove it, lawyers close to the investigation said yesterday as photos of the sordid night emerged.
Reade Seligmann, 20, of Essex Fells, N.J., has an ATM receipt, a cabdriver’s statement and dorm security records that call into doubt his being at the party at the time the woman says she was raped, said attorneys representing the lacrosse star’s teammates.
The 6-foot-1 sophomore admits being at the party, but says he left the off-campus home in Durham, N.C., less than 20 minutes after the woman arrived to perform a striptease, and before she says she was raped, the lawyers said.
“They have evidence in the form of an alibi that will clearly show at the alleged time of the rape, one of them specifically could not have been there,” said James Williams, an attorney for one of the team’s captains.
And they also say dozens of time-stamped photographs that have emerged from that night – at least one of which shows the victim smiling – exonerate Seligmann’s co-defendant, Collin Finnerty, 19, of Garden City, L.I., because he does not appear in any of the shots.
She was later convicted of murder. A real class act.
Duke University is regularly involved in scandals. Here is another famous one.
ABC News reports:
A Duke University official has been charged in federal court with offering his 5-year-old adopted son up for sex. Frank Lombard, associate director of the Center for Health Policy, was arrested Wednesday in Raleigh, the FBI said.
An unidentified informant who already faces child porn charges in a different child sex case pointed investigators to Lombard, according to court documents. The informant told investigators he had met Lombard on the Internet four years ago. The informant described in graphic detail how he allegedly observed Lombard molesting an African-American child on four occasions over an Internet video chat service called ICUii.
The informant said, according to court papers, that Lombard, who is white, said that he lived in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina and that the child was one of two adopted African-Americans in his custody.
Lombard has been charged with attempting to induce someone to cross state lines to engage in sex with a child, punishable by a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
[…]Lombard has been employed by Duke since 1999, Schoenfeld said.
And then there was the female co-ed who published a presentation about all the Duke athletes she had recreational sex with, comparing their performance in the bedroom.
I wouldn’t send my children to Duke University. It’s a cesspool.
