Disgusting: Lesbian activist premeditated fake “hate crime” as a political ruse

Written By: Bob - Aug• 23•12

TECHNICAL FOUL: Former Nebraska basketball star Charlie Rogers faces criminal charges after faking a hate crime to serve a gay rights political agenda during a town debate about a “fairness ordinance” that would protect gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals and transgendered from discrimination.

It’s pathetic when someone fakes a hate-motivated crime. They almost invariably get caught, and usually in the most publicly embarrassing way possible. The bogus attacks are remembered by the public for years after the fact, and make it difficult for those who are victims of legitimate crimes to be taken seriously without nearly iron-clad evidence.

Lesbian activist Charlies Rogers just helped destroy her cause and her community a little more:

A former University of Nebraska women’s basketball star faked an attack in which she allegedly carved anti-gay slurs into her skin because she felt it would spark change, police said Tuesday.

Four days before Charlie Rogers crawled naked and bleeding from her Lincoln home, screaming for help, she outlined in a Facebook posting what investigators believe was her motive for faking the July 22 attack, Police Chief Jim Peschong said at a news conference.

“So maybe I am too idealistic, but I believe way deep inside me that we can make things better for everyone. I will be a catalyst. I will do what it takes. I will. Watch me,” read the July 18 posting, according to police.

Tip: If you intend to stage a crime, don’t foreshadow your plot in advance on Facebook.

Rogers isn’t just an activist. She’s an idiot that thinks attempting to lie to the public for sympathy is the way to establish lasting change.

    But don’t you see? It’s the “narrative” that has to be pushed, the “truthiness”, even if it’s not the truth.

    Don’t you see?

    “They almost invariably get caught”

    We have no way of knowing whether other fakers never get caught.

    Obama faked that he was from Kenya and it doesn’t seem to have affect the millions of his minions.

    Why’d she have to crawl out naked? Next time you fake a hate crime, please pretend that a robe is within reach before you crawl out of the house. Thank you.

    She seems reasonably attractive so I don’t see the problem with her crawling naked. You discount as well that she may have wanted the experience of crawling naked in public and this gave her the excuse to fulfill that fantasy. The funny thing is most people are very forgiving and years from now she will pass by and folks will say, if anything, “Poor thing. She really messed up that time she did that thing she did.” However, the issue she tried to dramatically highlight will take on a life of its own: “You know some lesbians felt so helpless that one even tried to create a hoax to change things.” and: “People need to realize that one woman practically went crazy trying to change that law.” and finally: “This has turned into a huge mess in the media. What’s the harm in giving the Lesbian community what they want?”
