A series of racial incidents that stoked pandemonium on the campus of Syracuse University in New York have all but been revealed to have been the results of a hate hoax perpetrated by a social justice activist.
The panic began earlier this week when vague rumors surrounding a supposed white supremacist manifesto being sent to students in the university library surfaced. After the university failed to locate any specific students who received the supposed hate manifesto, the university chancellor admitted that the incident was likely a hoax.
The incidents continued when graffiti targeting African Americans and Jews surfaced nearby the library. The university was said to descend into a state of pandemonium in response to the events.
The chancellor’s suspicions appear to have been realized, as the freshman Syracuse student recently arrested and charged with fourth degree criminal mischief for applying the graffiti is reportedly a known social justice activist.
Kym McGowan, 18, has been charged with several misdemeanor charges.

The likely hoax appears to be one of the latest incidents where individuals attempted to make it seem as if hardcore racists posed an imminent threat to the general public. Hate hoaxes have become increasingly prominent in American society in recent years, with the most visible being Jussie Smollett’s hoax in which he paid two Nigerian brothers to play the role of racist Trump supporters and stage a fake “attack” on him.
The likely Syracuse hoax is far from the first to occur on college campuses, where progressives have faked racial or white supremacist activity before in successful attempts to rile other liberals into a panic.

BABY: CNN’s Brian Stelter Becomes Early Adapter of New Twitter ‘Disable Replies’ Feature
The mainstream media operative doesn’t want feedback.
CNN presenter Brian Stelter has become a quick adopter of a new Twitter feature that enables users to shut down replies to their tweets, essentially cutting off any potential for negative feedback and allowing unpopular verified journalists to propagate their own echo chambers.
The feature was implemented on Thursday by Twitter, and was roundly criticized by many of the platform’s users as a betrayal of the free-speech and democratic ideals the website originally stood for. The feature essentially allows verified and artificially promoted mainstream media personalities to escape criticism for dishonest reporting, lies, and political bias.
Stelter utilized the feature in a tweet about business challenges to the model of traditional print and local media. It would’ve gone without saying that his narrative would’ve been challenged by many Twitter users keen to point out that the erosion of traditional print media has coincided with rampant left-wing and institutional bias within the industry.

Replies to the tweet are disabled, but many users found a way to ensure that Stelter’s lightweight media proclivities were responded to in kind by those who are critical of cable mainstream media. Users who Stelter follows are able to reply to the tweet, and some who he deems acceptable within his own echo chamber were keen to call him out.
Is this the kind of "news" that needs to be saved? This looks like state TV to me. (P.S. why do you have the comments restricted? Can't take criticism?)https://t.co/LyzHr811jh

It’s almost certain that CNN hacks such as Stelter will continue to use the anti-democratic and elitist feature, hoping to shield themselves from accusations of dishonesty.
We’ve entered a new dark age of the internet where the original late 1990’s principles of free expression, intellectual curiosity, and open dialogue are being eroded by political and media elites terrified that their neoliberal vision for society is quickly becoming discredited. The ‘disable replies’ feature on Twitter is merely the latest indicator of such a phenomenon, but self-proclaimed ‘objective journalists’ such as Stelter might not prove as able to shut down criticism of themselves as they might hope.
