And, over the past dozen years or so, rightist whites have started to stage a few hate hoaxes of their own. …

Recently, however, some conservative whites have gotten into more Jussie Smollett-style awareness-raising hoaxes. Perhaps the funniest in Reilly’s book is from Princeton in 2007,

when a white Hispanic Mormon traditionalist conservative—I certainly hope I got all that in the correct order—named Francisco Nava accused two hooded men of beating him bloody with a bottle of Orangina.

There’s not much of a media market for this kind of thing compared with antiwhite hoaxes, but conservative celebrities such as Harvey Mansfield, Brit Hume, and David Horowitz took up Nava’s cause. Then the cops tripped up the Princeton student over his inconsistencies and he confessed to making it all up.

Today, a reader writes from Europe:

Dear Steve,

You may want to follow a developing story from Norway today. The wife (or possibly domestic partner) of the Norwegian Minister of Justice Tor Mikkel Wara was just arrested for a weird reverse hate hoax, in which she burned down their own car. Over the last few days, Norwegian press have been all over the story. Today, she was arrested and the minister took leave from his position. It is unclear if he is also involved

This is probably the third most powerful politician in Norway. Remarkably, this appears to be a hate hoax from the opposite side as we usually see. Tor Mikkel Wara is a representative of the Progress Party, which is on the side of restriction on immigration. Apparently, she wanted to make it seem like pro-immigration immigrants were attacking them.

This is a very interesting story since it appears to show that at least one very powerful person on the right is adopting the tactics of the SJWs. You may be interested in following the story as it develops today.

And from the New York Post:

Jacob Wohl may have faked death threat against himself
