Enough Rope

Ann Coulter


Liberals are so invigorated by the story about a noose being found on an obscure Columbia University professor's door that now nooses are popping up all over New York City. Liberals love to make believe the Night Riders are constantly at their doors.

I'll be shocked by a noose appearing on a college campus the day an actual racist does it. Could Columbia at least produce one student or professor who supports racism before holding another "rally against racism"? Every concrete example of the racism allegedly sweeping the nation's campuses keeps turning out to be a fraud. Far from "institutional racism," there is "institutional racial hoaxism" run amok in this country. Will anyone rally against that?

Out of legions, here are just a few hoax hate crimes on college campuses.

-- In 1997, at Duke University, a black doll was found hanging by a noose from a tree at the precise spot where the Black Student Alliance was to be holding a rally against racism. Two black students later admitted they were the culprits and were immediately praised for bringing attention to the problem of racism on campus. Indeed, four years later the president of Duke gave a baccalaureate address nostalgically describing the hoax as a "protest" against racism. Next stop: the Nobel Peace Prize.

-- In 2003, vile racial epithets were scrawled on the dorm room doors at Ole Miss, producing mass protests and a "Say No to Racism" march. And then it turned out the graffiti had been written by black students, against whom no charges were brought. A "Say Yes to Racism" rally at Ole Miss was later canceled due to lack of interest.

-- In 2005, obscenity-laced racist and anti-Semitic messages appeared on dormitory walls at the College of Wooster in Ohio. The fliers were instantly blamed on "typical white males," even though all the letter I's in the epithets were dotted with little hearts. Breadcrumbs left by the culprits included the message "Vote Goldwater" among the obscenities. The matter was dropped and flushed down the memory hole when the perpetrators turned out to be a group of leftist students led by a black studies major.

-- Just this year, anti-Muslim fliers were put out on the George Washington University campus -- by leftists, including a member of "Iraq Veterans Against War." When it was thought the leaflets were from the conservative group Young Americans For Freedom, the dean called for the expulsion of the culprits and the university demanded that YAF officers sign a statement disavowing "hate speech." But when it turned out leftists had distributed the fliers, the matter was dropped faster than Larry Craig was dropped from Mitt Romney's campaign.

The one real example of racism on a college campus in recent memory was perpetrated against white men of the Duke lacrosse team. As that injustice was being perpetrated, gender and ethnic professors at Duke kept droning on about the "racism and sexism" students "live with every day" -- as the professors put it in an open letter that falsely presumed the players were guilty of rape. We don't expect a rally against the prejudiced professors, but an apology might be nice.

Playing the game of He Who Is Offended First Wins, Americans seek status not by claiming to be rich or of royal lineage, but by portraying themselves as victims. In one recent hoax hate crime, a white woman professor at Claremont McKenna College said her car had been vandalized with racist and anti-Semitic graffiti, with the words "Shut Up!" spray-painted on the hood of her car. She was not black or Jewish, but had recently converted to Judaism and spoke out against racism. So she was a victim! After the vandalism of her car, she promptly became Queen for a Day. Far from "silenced," this anonymous mountebank was given a national microphone to bore us with her race-gender-culture theories. The campus was shut down for a day for anti-racism rallies in the charlatan's honor. Then eyewitnesses identified her as the one who had spray-painted her own car, and the pity party was over.

These liberal racism-hunters are like dirty old men who spend their days poring through pornography in order to better denounce it -- but enough about the Warren court. Assuming against all reason and experience that the Columbia noose is not another hoax by a high-status victim, how is it that a pimply adolescent can cause such tumult in liberal New York City?

Liberals claim to believe the Klan has established a beachhead at Columbia University, Bill O'Reilly is head of the Manhattan branch, Rush Limbaugh despises the troops, I'm planning a pogrom from the heart of Manhattan, and George Bush is establishing fascism in America.

Some anonymous liberal hag on Air America Radio, which no one knew was still on the air, fell down outside her Park Avenue apartment this week, and her liberal colleagues were claiming it was Kristallnacht.

If it rains after a liberal washes his car, they say it's a right-wing dirty trick. Liberals love nothing more than these constant self-righteous-athons -- as if they would ever have the courage to stand up for any cause not universally supported by everyone around them.

i read your scribbles on the drunken biotch at the airport and you made excellent points that were ignored largely by those visiting the site you were ah..trolling.

i read this piece on your site and while nicely done, you could improve your armor plating in your verbal onslaughts by doing two things:

1)avoid absolutes.

putting all liberals in one basket. larry craig does not suggest that all right-wingers are homophobic, as surely you know?

avoid clinging to dogma.

again, this would lead one to conclude that all liberals ever have been wrong about everything, and that all right-wingers are always correct, purely because their dogma is solid.

humans are riddled with faults, all of them. most of the work we create is flawed because we made it, and we are not perfect. unless you are from the planet zorg where all things are perfect, you have flaws, and thus can be wrong.

note i did not say you fly by dogma, just concerned that you might be. i have not read enough of your stuff, nor do i have time to tell if such is true.

if your troll scribblings were shit, i would not take the time to comment. you have potential, no question.

do as you wish, but absolute thinking will kill you, and worse, negate the point of a solid argument from someone who clearly is working it.

you bring nice heat, you do, could wind up being the ultimate troll. one that can make everyone think. i would love to see a changeup from you and watch you play devil's advocate for liberals. i think you would grow rapidly from that.

absolutes baby, they are like one real hot trailer park whore.

rev.billy bob gisher,

A couple of points. First, regarding absolutes. Hyperbole is part of the game. Second, the Noose post was written by Ann Coulter.

However, it tackles an issue of great interest to me: Hoaxers and charlatans.

Until Al Sharpton ditched his wife and kids for another woman, he lived only a few blocks from me here in Brooklyn. The Al Sharpton/Tawana Brawley hoax made it clear that some people will shamelessly commit crimes to create outrage and draw sympathy. All that while millions of people fall for the hoaxes.

When David Dinkins was mayor of NY City, he fell for a hoax. A couple of black kids claimed they were smeared with some white paint by a gang called the Albanian Boys. Dinkins had the city on high alert for these mythical paint smearers of two black kids. He offered a $10,000 reward for the capture and prosecution for these non-existent miscreants.

Meanwhile, almost the same day a real white man was murdered in broad daylight in Prospect Park, which is the Central Park of Brooklyn. A long list of witnesses saw five black teenagers attack and shoot the victim, who died trying to keep his bicycle from these murderous thieves.

Not surprisingly, Mayor Dinkins offered no reward money for the murder of this white man, who was a much-loved public school teacher. But he fell for the story told by two black kids, who, as it turned out, made up their story to cover up the fact they hadn't done their homework.

As for Carol Gotbaum, her sad case is one of misplaced priorities. It was a tragedy that she died. What makes it a tragedy is the ease with which the situation could have been avoided. Her husband was too caught up his own rationalizations and misunderstandings about the meaning of his wife's alcoholism, depression and mental instability to ask for the appropriate service from the airline.

However, it's clear that he will never publicly acknowledge his fatal error. He will sue the Phoenix Airport to assauge his guilt over his hairbrained plan to send his crazy drunk wife across the country to dry out and get her head repaired. If he receives some compensation in settlement of the suit, it will thicken the leathery sheath of denial he's already formed around himself.
