Young Leftists have been conditioned to understand that the best way to get what you want, whatever that may be, is to become a victim. The most coveted type of of victim to be is a victim of racism, (Unless you’re White, of course, because then you deserve it.) This obsession with vitcimhood has led many young aspiring Democrats to commit hoaxes in which they portray themselves as the target of evil right-wing extremists. This happens particularly often on college campus. However, we are seeing it more an more throughout the broader society. Most recently, in the Navy.
From The Navy Times:
A sailor who claimed someone scrawled racial slurs on his bed aboard an aircraft carrier —sparking a viral Facebook post in the process — staged the incident himself, the Navy said Friday.
Marquie Little, a 27-year-old African American seaman, posted photos to Facebook on Nov. 15 under an alias that showed his rack on the carrier George H.W. Bush covered in trash and racial slurs.
“I proudly serve the Navy and this is what I’m receiving in return,” he wrote in the post.
But on Friday Cmdr. Dave Hecht, a spokesman for Naval Air Force Atlantic, said “a thorough investigation” conducted with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service found inconsistencies in the sailor’s account.
“A NCIS-supported command investigation following claims of racially-motivated vandalism aboard the (carrier) has determined that the alleged victim staged the incident himself,” Hecht said in an email.
It appears that nothing will happen to the sailor, which is a problem. Had this been a real racist incident, the perpetrators would no doubt be disciplined, or worse. Why then, should a young man who perpetrates a racist hoax not be similarly disciplined?
