Why Do Hoaxers Hoax?

by baldilocks

Sgt. Mom at Chicago Boyz:

To the sur­prise of prac­ti­cally no one out­side the Estab­lish­ment Main­stream Media and a hand­ful of social jus­tice race-​warriors who live to per­pet­u­ate the ‘White Amer­i­cans Are Teh Most Raaaaacist Evah!’ meme, the Jussie Smal­l­ett racial beat-​down-​and-​bleach soak­ing has been con­firmed by local law enforce­ment as a put-​up job, arranged and paid for by the so-​called vic­tim …[snip]

This came on the heels of a long, long, long list of sex or race-​hate hoaxes which either proved to be delib­er­ately insti­gated by the so-​called vic­tim, fanned by activists for their own ends at worst, or at best, a ran­dom snowflake trig­gered by an equally ran­dom occur­rence like a pair of shoelaces acci­den­tally dropped on the ground, or a banana peel left in a tree. [snip]

Frankly, I’m annoyed at the ten­dency of the racial social jus­tice war­riors to declare that some hor­rific offense has been levied against them, when­ever they declare that some con­ver­sa­tion has to be had, aware­ness to be raised, or that some pub­lic­ity has to be required …

What gets me about the racial hoax­ers – espe­cially the black ones – is that they uncon­sciously sig­nal weak­ness and inter­nal­ized infe­ri­or­ity turned out­ward. Pro­jected, that is.

Those who per­pe­trate the hoaxes don’t real­ize what they are really say­ing to the “vil­lain” group – white male heterosexuals:

You are bet­ter than me.”

They never get to this point: “If there are so few racial attacks out there that I have to make up this story and/​or set up this sce­nario, then per­haps racism isn’t as big of a prob­lem as I think.”

But then again, I sup­pose that it’s too much to expect a fake hoaxer to be capa­ble of next-​level rea­son­ing. If those who pon­der the fake noose or the poop-​swastika were intro­spec­tive, they wouldn’t be hoaxers.

Sgt. Mom’s third snipped obser­va­tion is key, how­ever. “Look at me, white het­ero­sex­ual men – espe­cially you fans of Trump! You don’t even care enough about me to per­pe­trate a hate crime on me and mine. But I’ll make you look and make you talk and make you feel guilty! Watch this!”

This is the behav­ior of a neglected child; or an adult who believes in his/​her innate infe­ri­or­ity as a black/​woman/​homosexual/​etc.

I don’t get it. Because if every­one who isn’t white, male, and het­ero­sex­ual is irrev­o­ca­bly infe­rior to the tri­fecta, then what’s the point in all the social jus­tice warrioring?

That’s the impli­ca­tion of Smollett-​ism.

But I sup­pose that there’s another impli­ca­tion: that there is no point other than seed­ing sus­pi­cion and chaos in our republic.

Some peo­ple just want to see the world burn.

There’s noth­ing new under the sun.

To the surprise of practically no one outside the Establishment Mainstream Media and a handful of social justice race-warriors who live to perpetuate the ‘White Americans Are Teh Most Raaaaacist Evah!’ meme, the Jussie Smallett racial beat-down-and-bleach soaking has been confirmed by local law enforcement as a put-up job, arranged and paid for by the so-called victim …[snip]

This came on the heels of a long, long, long list of sex or race-hate hoaxes which either proved to be deliberately instigated by the so-called victim, fanned by activists for their own ends at worst, or at best, a random snowflake triggered by an equally random occurrence like a pair of shoelaces accidentally dropped on the ground, or a banana peel left in a tree. [snip]

Frankly, I’m annoyed at the tendency of the racial social justice warriors to declare that some horrific offense has been levied against them, whenever they declare that some conversation has to be had, awareness to be raised, or that some publicity has to be required …

What gets me about the racial hoaxers – especially the black ones – is that they unconsciously signal weakness and internalized inferiority turned outward. Projected, that is.

Those who perpetrate the hoaxes don’t realize what they are really saying to the “villain” group – white male heterosexuals:

“You are better than me.”

They never get to this point: “If there are so few racial attacks out there that I have to make up this story and/or set up this scenario, then perhaps racism isn’t as big of a problem as I think.”

But then again, I suppose that it’s too much to expect a fake hoaxer to be capable of next-level reasoning. If those who ponder the fake noose or the poop-swastika were introspective, they wouldn’t be hoaxers.

Sgt. Mom’s third snipped observation is key, however. “Look at me, white heterosexual men – especially you fans of Trump! You don’t even care enough about me to perpetrate a hate crime on me and mine. But I’ll make you look and make you talk and make you feel guilty! Watch this!”

This is the behavior of a neglected child; or an adult who believes in his/her innate inferiority as a black/woman/homosexual/etc.

I don’t get it. Because if everyone who isn’t white, male, and heterosexual is irrevocably inferior to the trifecta, then what’s the point in all the social justice warrioring?

That’s the implication of Smollett-ism.

But I suppose that there’s another implication: that there is no point other than seeding suspicion and chaos in our republic.
