Hoax, Hate Crime, Or Hyperbolic Stupidity?


You can’t make this shit up. On second thought, yes you can.

Gerti Wilson was one of the first people to see what was thought to be three makeshift nooses on the Newark, Del., campus.

Wilson, who found out about the nooses by text, grabbed her shoes and took off running toward Mitchell Hall shortly after 10 p.m., ignoring the feeling that she may be entering an unsafe situation.

Within a few minutes, the senior found the makeshift nooses — made of string with bent hangers attached to the ends — and began taking photos. Almost immediately, university police arrived and started removing the objects.

“I’ve been called the n-word multiple times. I’ve dealt with a lot of racial BS at this campus, but never, never in my wildest imagination did I think in my last year here … that in the middle of the night I would run up to a tree with three nooses hanging up there,” she said.

In a statement issued Tuesday night, the university said the on-campus police department is investigating the incident as a hate crime.

“We are both saddened and disturbed that this deplorable act has taken place on our campus,” acting President Nancy Targett said in a statement. “This hateful display stands in stark contrast to Monday night’s peaceful protest and discussion. We condemn this despicable action and ask everyone in our community to stand together against intolerance and hate.”

The incident came one day after a Black Lives Matter protest of a speaking event by Fox News commentator Katie Pavlich. Pavlich called the Black Lives Matter movement a “violent hate group.”

“But nothing felt like the moment I ran up to that tree and saw that noose. … I can’t even put into words how that made me feel.”

Students of color across the University of Delaware campus reacted in outrage and frustration on social media, calling for swift action from the university and change on a campus that lauds itself on diversity.

The university’s racial make-up has come under scrutiny of late.

The Delaware General Assembly allocated $200,000 in June to hire an independent consultant to study the school’s hiring and student recruitment practices, and to make recommendations for how it can be handled better. Legislators are concerned because the state’s flagship university has only one in 20 students enrolled who are black when one in five residents statewide are black. The faculty also lags in terms of diversity.

Morgan Franklin, a senior from New Jersey, broke down in tears at the sight of the makeshift nooses, calling the incident “sad and disheartening.” She said it’s not the first time she’s been made to feel unsafe on the university’s campus and an even bigger reminder that there is still much need for change.

“I know that my safety is not a concern,” said Franklin.

In fall 2014, more than 76% of the university’s undergraduate students were white. About 5% of undergraduates were black, 7% were Hispanic, and 4.5% were Asian or Pacific Islander. Foreign students, Native Americans and multiracial students made up the remaining 7.5%.

For Wilson, the incident is like traveling back in time — into the research discussion she previously left Tuesday night discussing black rights in the 19th century and her ancestors fighting for their rights back then.

She called the comparison “mind-boggling,” a trip back in history at a time where Wilson believed there had been forward movement and significant change.

“Every single day here, as a female African-American student, to be on the campus at a predominantly white campus feels like you’re suffocating every single day,” Wilson said. “But nothing felt like the moment I ran up to that tree and saw that noose. … I can’t even put into words how that made me feel.”

Oh, my! That’s terrible!

Just one little problem:

Lanterns, not nooses hanging on Delaware campus

The University of Delaware released a statement Wednesday stating that the three hanging items that were found hanging from a tree outside the university’s performance theater Tuesday night were not nooses, but the remnants of decorations from a previous event.

“Thanks to tips from students who responded to our earlier call for information and the investigative work of University of Delaware Police, it has been determined that the three noose-like items found outside Mitchell Hall were not instruments of a hate crime, but the remnants of paper lanterns from an event previously held on The Green,” reads the statement posted on the University of Delaware website, and signed by Nancy M. Targett, the university’s acting president.

Also in the statement, the university’s Police Chief Patrick Ogden states, “I am confident that we have determined the origin of these items.”

Remember this guy?:

Guess who “found” the “nooses” and called in a hate crime. Go ahead, guess.

The media was off and running with stories of “another” hate crime on campus before Harry even signed off Twitter for the evening. I was telling everyone who would listen that it was a hoax.

You gotta be seriously FITH to see wire hangers and string and think nooses.

I just wish the Racial Grievance Noise Machine had time to get up to full speed before the story blew up.

    do not send your kid to college right our of high school. by the time they get through real life will kill them.
    make them work at some kind of real life job for a year or two then send them. make them work summers. Reality bites and they need to know this before spending money and going into debt to be taught to be a wimp

    • DeniseVB says:

      I think the current admission system is flawed. “Privileged White” Kids like Harry (he admitted so in his Pavlich Manifesto), are being dumped on the colleges because the parents pass a credit check or are heavy alumni donors. Affirmative Action gave us MO and BO (I’ll just leave it at that). My kids weren’t strong high school students, but their extra-curricular school activities gave them a leg up and they held jobs. Sometimes I wonder how snowflakes like Harry were even admitted ?

      Here in Virginia, the public supported colleges are pretty good at recognizing Diamonds in the Rough. The more competitive ones will tell you “hey, you look like a nifty kid with promise, tell ya what, go to your local community college for a year or two, maintain a B average in your core subjects and we’ll admit you the following semester”. Most kids do that, or like mine, just went to their safety schools, private and out of state😉

      funny story but true
      I was calling a railroader for work out of Newark Delaware. Remember I worked and lived in Philadelphia, a city girl. The man told me he could not work as he had to take his jackass to a show and sell him. I was laughing so hard and told him if he had to go peddle his ass I would give him the day off. That was the best excuse I ever heard in my years of calling crews.

    The anti-Islamization PEGIDA patriots come out to protest Chancellor Angela Merkel’s treason for opening the floodgates to upwards of a million Muslim freeloaders, rapists, thugs, and potential ISIS terrorists. They would gladly exchange her for Vladimir Putin.

    Here’s an update from Katie Pavlich:

    • elliesmom says:

      The school is holding a meeting this afternoon. Student groups are accusing the administration of a “cover-up”. My money says the school officials will insist the wires were left from lanterns, but start some kind of “focus group” to study the lack of diversity on campus and the “fear” students of color and alternative sexual orientation live with everyday. Because imaginations are a terrible thing to waste.

    Hillary Clinton: Come Clean or Get Out

    The email scandal is a distraction from the important work of the Democratic Party.


  13. Myiq2xu says:


    An enraged Hillary Rodham Clinton blew up at President Obama, demanding he “call off your f–king dogs” looking into her emails during a tense Oval Office meeting, according to a new book.

    The book, “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary,” says the former first lady was furious at what she believed were damaging leaks by Obama aides that led to investigations of her use of a private email server as secretary of state. So she went right to the top to settle the matter.

    Clinton requested a meeting with Obama, against the advice of hubby Bill Clinton, believing “she was being persecuted for minor, meaningless violations,” author Edward Klein writes.

    Clinton initially took a friendly approach during the meeting and Obama reacted as if he didn’t know what she was talking about, the book claims.
    “He was almost being deliberately dense,” a Clinton source said. “It really angered her.”

    Clinton lost her temper and called the president by his first name in an emotionally driven break with White House decorum, according to the book.

    “What I want for you to do is call off your f–king dogs, Barack!” Clinton allegedly barked at Obama, according to Klein’s account, which cited sources close to Clinton and Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.

    The president was so stunned by Clinton’s disrespectful demands, he needed a moment to compose himself, the book claims.

    Obama then responded, “There is nothing I can do for you one way or another. Things have been set in motion, and I can’t and won’t interfere. Your problems are, frankly, of your own making. If you had been honest . . .”

    Klein reports Clinton interrupted, “There are always haters out there to get the Clintons.”

    The Democratic 2016 front-runner is said to have later regretted her tirade against the president — not for the disrespect she showed, but for the weakness she displayed.

    Hillary’s campaign says the story is bullshit, but they would say that whether it was true or not.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Like I’ve said before, Sarah’s governor records/emails were FOIA’d and she turned them ALL over immediately for AP to dig for dirt. No only didn’t they find dirt, they admitted she was a pretty darn good governor.

      That’s what Hillary should have done in the first place. End of drama. It’s all this nonsense she’s brought on herself, starting with a private server nobody in the administration knew she had.

      • NewOrleans says:

        I remember the worst the media discovered in Sarah’s emails was that she sought Todd’s counseling and support quite often. The horrors! Married people acting like true partners!
        Of course, that was at the same time the media was reporting Sarah & Todd were splitting up, so they (the media) inadvertently revealed their own stories to be lies.

        I LOVE it when that happens!

      • Anthony says:

        starting with a private server nobody in the administration knew she had.

        Somehow, I find it hard to believe that in the 4 years she served, the POTUS never noticed her address or didn’t have someone i.d. the server. Its his problem as well as hers.

        • swanspirit says:

          I think Pope Fran has a lot to learn, if he is capable of learning. I think he is very parochial (crackin myself up here ) in his outlook, and provincial in his scope and vision. I think his limitations are inherent, due to his age and background; and he is still focused on the Americas, and doesn’t get the comprehensiveness of global problems. I think he is especially lacking in insight where Muslims are concerned.
          He is focused on “pilgrims” from South America to the US ? Yeah those folks are really coming for religious reasons. Meanwhile slaughter and genocide of Christians is taking place in the ME and that gets barely a nod or a mention from him. No, we are supposed to be worried about capitalism and greed?
          And as far as women are concerned, they can be forgiven for having abortions, but not for wanting to be priests.
          What a guy.
          In case you might have guessed, I am not a fan of Pope Fran

      Diversity includes seed money to start a business? I am confounded by all the refugee owned businesses and poor plans enabled by some group settling refugees. Who is funding these endeavors. I think refugee I think in serious need not opening up a small business. Where does the money come from? Ten blocks on the main strip in my town two new convenience stores have opened. There are already three. The two new ones have no parking. Must take at least 50 grand to open the door. What banker approves that?

    • votermom says:

      Imo, Benedict is still the true Pope. “Francis” is a usurper.

      • mothy67 says:

        I grew up very Catholic. Since his ascent I have thought Frank was obama. Never sat right with me. Too silky. Too progressive. Gut reaction he gives me the willies. Given the dims stance on late term abortions he should not parade around with obama. I am grateful for my education because I have guilt. Do I believe Frank is the emmisary of God. NO. I think he was politically connected. In all of history has there ever been a mass migration as we are seeing now? Europe will be redifined. Some progs think with a bogus degree they can redifine the world. Listen to the State department they are vapid. I pray the pope holds no sway.

      • Venus says:

        As an Orthodox Catholic (or Eastern Orthodox) — I recognize him as the Pope/Bishop of Rome, the first among EQUALS. Those nothing he says, even from the chair of St. Peter is infallible, IMO.

        However, many Roman Catholics don’t realize that it is ONLY on those religious matters that are delivered from the Chair of St. Peter that the Pope is considered “infallible.” And, of course, none of the progs realize this — otherwise they’d see that his stance on abortion and SSM is actual DOGMA, not his junk science opinions on climate or economics.

      • cynic says:

        Benedict was made to step down. Look up Vatileaks. My theory (I know, yesterday was Tinfoil Tues.) is that the NSA had spies on the Vatican, and now Francis is doing Obama’s bidding. It’s no coincidence that the Vatican and Obama are lock and step on Climate Change (Jeffrey Sachs/Earth Institute was a Special Adviser. He’s been on Morning Joe numerous times. That should tell you something.) Immigration, Cuba, evils of Capitalism, etc.

        I’m Catholic, and I’m not feeling the love. Instead, the hairs on the back of my neck are standing up. Perhaps I should remove my hat?

    • NewOrleans says:


      It’s a brilliant move for anyone in business. Any celebrity or business NOT actively grabbing domain names even remotely connected to their identifying names is a fool. And anyone who thinks this isn’t a smart tactic is clueless about the way business and the Internet works.

      Taylor Swift recently bought porn domain names to keep them out of reach of domain name squatters and others who could damage her brand or use them for nefarious purposes. I’m going to go out on a limb and suppose you don’t think she’s anti-free speech.

      • taw46 says:

        True. Type in carlyfiorina.org and see what comes up. She did not buy the domain name.

        • NewOrleans says:

          There’s the perfect example! Carly’s not even smart enough to spend $10 on buying the 3 most popular top-level domain names (.com, .net, .org) for her own name! That’s Internet Presence 101 for crying out loud!

          She’d be forced to spend thousands (at a minimum) on lawyers to try and wrestle control of that once someone else owns it. I can see why HP did so poorly under her ‘leadership.’

        • mothy67 says:

          I think Trump has many flaws but I believe he loves America. I feel vehemently about his immigration policies. I think no one owns him.
          My parents raised 5 kids. My mom was 15 my dad 19. They worked always. My dad was a grocery store manager and at night managed a drive-in. He worked hard but food on the table, clothes on our backs were more important than a 501k. My mom got her GED and graduated from Nursing School same year I graduated from high school. They worked hard. I grew up on cheap meals. Noodles and gravy was a big one as an all atternitive to spaghetti. Browm sauce versus red sauce. Raised good kids(I am the worst) but they are retired. Never got welfare. My mom went on with her 10th grade education to become a supervisor at an insurance company. Small retirement. They depend on social security. I hate hearing entitlement as my father paid in for 50 years. Constant media threat that SS is bankrupt while providing billions to illegals. Same thing applies to illegal pre natal care. An illegal gets full treatment. A vet gets screwed.
          Sorry I see only trump addressing thid.

          Thanks for answering, Helen. What’s great about TCH is that there is never any one true candidate – we can all have our own opinions.
          I love how Trump is bitch-slapping the media and wreaking havoc on PC, but I do roll my eyes at him a lot too. It’s such a crazy election cycle but so far I am enjoying it.

          • cynic says:

            I currently like Trump because I’ve seen the games that the GOPe plays – up close and personal. Our local Republican leader took down the local leader of the TEA Party. I know how she did it, and all that were involved. It was ugly and disgusting. I dropped out of local politics after that.

            My Congressman is bought and paid for. He came out in support of JEBush weeks ago, and had a front page article in our paper recently attacking Trump.

            Last year, I complained about how he goes on the Chicago radio stations and insults Cruz and Paul, and I was told that they aren’t real Republicans, so that was ok.

    • mothy67 says:

      I get why many here do not like Donald but I think he is the only thing between us amnesty/jeb. Carly speaks well but where does she stand? Is she a RINO. I want borders closed and the American worker first. Stage was set for jeb. No Donald we get bush or hillary. Free speech? No I think he uses everything at his disposal to win. He is launching a legal battle. Should he rollover and play dead? I am down to Trump or Cruz. Cruz is ignored. I believe when he is forced out he will back Trump.
      So telling jeb wrote of his wife and her influence on his world view. Trump acknowledges what he wrote than demands an apology. . Carly has no traction. She is a tool for the RNC. They want jeb. She will grant amnesty and increase visas. Her policies get ignored because she is a powerful, articulate, attractive woman. I think she is a RINO.

      • Somebody says:

        Well we know for sure Carly loves her some H1B visas at least her track record would indicate that. She has said they are being abused and they sure are, but other than lip service I haven’t heard a plan from her to reign in the “abuse”. Her donor list would indicate that’s not going to happen under her administration should she be elected……silicon valley and COC.

        One of her biggest donors is the founder of Univision, hmmmm. She has said we need to tighten the border, don’t they all. I’m not convinced she is any different from Jeb and Rubio when it comes to immigration, just my opinion.

      • Jeffhas says:

        I heard Megyn saying Obama was at 6% right now in 2008…..

        The establishment just waits until the caucuses and primaries, and announces their turtle is the winner – ‘voila’ momentum… This is going to happen again this cycle – it’s just a matter of how much an insider can solidify his/her base. It looks like Donald has a solid 25%… I don’t know if that’s enough to to win, but if he doesn’t win primaries, the narrative will get uglier for him…. I do think his 25% is likely to stay home, so HRC benefits (if she’s not indicted).

        Here’s to hoping Donald really does know how to manage, and has a sophisticated ground game – he’s gonna need it to compete with the GOPe that have worked hard to rig the caucuses and primaries.

Those that like Trump are not going to be swayed by a talking head. Those that hate him are not going to change. He commands yuuge attention why would he cater himself to a network out to sink him? In many ways his candidacy is a referendum on illegal immigration. Please tell me how hiring ESL teachers does not effect budget. We now have one music teacher, one art teacher, one phys ed.

  21. mothy67 says:

    For the record I do not mean to insult those not on Trump wagon. I see his numerous fauts, but I see Donald as the only one capable of taking down the jeb machine. This election cycle seemed to me like a play date with the other candidates. We will run every one and their mother and jeb will win by default. Pataki? Lindsay Lohan? Liked Walker but he never stood a chance against boosh machine. Cruz is briilliant but screwed up on trade. He also needs some camera coaching. .
    I WILL never vote for jeb. I am not alone. The RNC ignored the base thinking they had no where else to go. Screw them and Bush. I relish Trump causing havoc. Watching Rove squirm is worth it. Carly, I have no idea where she stands. Rubio is too much like a good looking used car salesman. Carson’s voice is too passive. I want a fighter. Bush , i have love in my heart. GAG.

    • 1539days says:

      I get that, but what does Trump knock out Jeb for? Trump? I think Trump’s negatives are high enough that he can’t win a general election. Right now, the alternative is a long con where Cruz gets the Trump supporters. I guess that’s better than Jeb, but it makes the Democrats look like professionals by comparison.

    • Jeffhas says:

      All of these candidates were put in to make it appear that Jeb! slayed all the dragons to get the nomination – it takes the argument away from the base that the fix was in all along (Romney) and stay home – or worse, break out the pitchforks and torches…. But the establishment has already done their dirty work, they gave rigged every primary and caucus (Lindsey Lohan is just meant to split the vote in SC then hand those delegates back to Yeb! – just like most of the 1% candidates; Pataki? Really? Oh wait, he might split some home state votes away in NY – and then pledge them back to Yeb!)… The FIX is in, and it looks like only Donald (maybe) might be able to thwart it…

      … But in the meantime, Trump is wreaking havoc, and he has insulted Yeb right into 8% land – those low energy comments have hurt him – he’ll never win a General Election now – and Donald’s 25% are definitely staying home if Yeb! Is the nominee.

      … And I see as Mothy sees – there are a TON of dems (and AA’s) just loving Trump – I am astonished, the GE will be far easier for him to win then the Nom.

      Super fun stuff to watch, but I worry the GOPe plan will unfold as they calculated come primary season…
