Reports of bias incidents at Vassar College that involved hateful messages left on students' doors were actually elaborate hoaxes - and the perpetrator is none other than the student member of the Bias Incident Response Team, The Daily Caller has learned.
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 Ni***rs," and most prominently, "Hey Tranny. Know Your Place."
Predictably, the college reacted with grave outrage. "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," write the dean in charge of rooting out bias.
...it turned out that the perps were two students exploiting the eagerness of gullible liberals to believe hateful bias is all around them, one of them identified by the Daily Caller as a "transgendered" student named Genesis Hernandez, who was a vice president of the Vassar Student Association (VSA), the student government, and the student member of the Bias Incident Response Team.
Kuwaiti newspaper Al Jarida reported Sunday that U.S. President Barack Obama has been refusing to take phone calls from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because of the tension between the two countries over how to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue.
The Prime Minister’s Office issued a flat denial, saying, “The report in Al Jarida is wrong.”
The White House also denied the reports.
Al Jarida, which has previously reported information that was later verified about a leak investigation taking place in Netanyahu’s bureau, says that on Friday, Obama refused more than once to speak to Netanyahu on the telephone and had U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry take the call instead. The paper cited a source it says is familiar with the issue.
According to the report, which was written by a reporter in Jerusalem, U.S. Jewish leaders are trying to get the White House to decrease the tension and snag Netanyahu an invitation to meet with Obama in Washington.
The Kuwaiti paper’s exclusive reports on what’s going on behind the scenes of the Prime Minister’s Office have raised the question of whether Netanyahu’s bureau is intentionally using the paper to release information to which it doesn’t want to be directly linked.
