And you were thinking Tawana Brawley was so 1987:

Everybody’s doing it!

(Update: I used to have Jews in there. No doubt such instances exist. But since all of the Internet sources for Jewish hate crime hoaxes turn out to be, shall we say, interested (see the comments), I removed them.)

    Heck, I really did it. I’ve violated Canada’s "hate speech" law several times. You don’t need fakes when you live in Canada.

    Last I heard "American Renaissance" was published by the American Renaissance Party, a neo-nazi outfit once headed by George Lincoln Rockwell. Judging by their unsupported allegation that, "In Israel, West Bank settlers have been known to fire-bomb Jewish installations in the hope of provoking greater hostility towards Arabs," the party hasn’t changed much. Perhaps you might rethink using them as a source.

    Good point. There are certainly real instances of Jewish hate crime hoaxes, but I will find a more reputable source.
