Quote# 96405

A male student at Oberlin College admitted to police that he is responsible for a series of racist, antisemitic, and anti-LGBT incidents at the traditionally progressive institution. The student’s campaign began on February 5, 2013, when an unnamed female student complained to the Oberlin College Safety and Security Office that someone had posted on her door a flyer with a link to “OBIETALK.COM,” which led to a site containing offensive comments about the unnamed female. At the time of the incident, she stated that she believed two students — including the one who later confessed his complicity to police — responsible for posting the flyer on her door. One week later, the same female student found another flyer on her door that read “CELEBRATE N****R HISTORY MUNF! RAPE A WHITE WOMAN!”

On February 9 alone, students found swastikas on glass doors, posters declaring “The Third Reich Lives On,” and flyers that read “For N****r jokes and racist Humor visit N****rmania.com and N****rmania.net.” The next day, posters for the sociology departments “Year of the Queer” had been defaced, with the word “Queer” struck-through and “F****t” in its place.

For the next week, the campus grounds were regularly defaced. The Multicultural Resource Center was rechristened “N****R + F****t Center,” and English professors found their doors plastered with flyers that read “THE OVENS ARE TOO GOOD FOR YOU N****R + N****R LOVING K***S!” and “FORGET YOUR SNIVEL RIGHTS N****R! JUST BE GLAD YOUR [sic] NOT ALL IN CAGES!” Signs declared certain water fountains to be “WHITES ONLY.”

[...]

According to the police report, the student who took credit for these acts claims they were a “joke” intended to create an “overreaction” on the part of the campus community. Several conservative sites, which claim to have discovered the identity of the student and linked to now-defunct Twitter accounts, lend credence to the suspect’s claim. Police, however, have refused to identify the student(s) involved and the students identified by those publications have denied involvement, making it impossible to determinate the sincerity of the confessed student’s stated motives.

Well, if they wanted an overreaction, I'd overreact my fist into their noses. Among other things.

I'm sure the students, faculty, administration, and police will take this joke for what it is. "Haven't you got a sense of humor?" is not a Get Out Of Jail Free card. Perhaps the student responsible will learn a valuable life lesson that you are responsible for your actions and ought to take the consequences.

Short of a public execution I find it difficult to imagine how one overreacts to a weeklong campaign of vandalism, incitement, and death threats peppered with the most hateful garbage imaginable.

This is bitchslap worthy. They should be fined, apologize to every single person they insulted face to face, and forced to scrub the school from one end to the other with Dr. Laura standing behind them with a megaphone under explicit intructions to be a bigger bitch than normal.

This reminds me of a kid I knew in elementary school whose idea of a prank was assaulting people for no reason.

Out them & force them to apologize & clean up the mess. Then, have them volunteer for a civil-rights organization.

If it were supposed to be a joke, it's not very funny. Imagine trying to go to school to get an education and be faced with racist and sexist comments everywhere.

9/6/2013 5:52:03 AM



If it were a ploy, why target that one girl? Sounds personal to me.

9/6/2013 6:03:41 AM



Unfortunately for this moron, "trolling" in real life doesn't work like it does online. I hope he thinks long and hard about the people he's hurt when he's unable to find employment outside of Walmart.

Give them public service for a month or so, see if that helps their sense of humor.

I loathe the "fuck 'em if they can't take a joke" attitude, in real life and online. I have nothing profound to say here; this student is just an asshole.

It's unfortunate the crime here doesn't raise to the level of jail time. There are so many people in prison eager to help those with problems interacting with African Americans (and most especially those who use the N word so much)overcome their psychological issues in a loving and meaningful fashion.

You know, with a shiv.

@#1583311 - That's what I thought too. Sounds awfully personal for something that's supposed to be a prank. A general prank would be trolling everyone, not targeting specific individuals.

When I heard that little tidbit I put 2 and 2 together: The ringleader of this incident was probably interested in that girl but she chose a black guy over him. He or he and his friends defaced her property to get back at her.

That seems to be a common cause of what spawns Internet racists and Internet white nationalists - socially awkward losers and basement-dwellers who are white guys either having their girlfriends leave them for a black guy or some girl/woman they're interested in deciding to go out with a more confident black guy who approached them. These boys and men then blame Liberalism/Progressivism for the white woman choosing a nonwhite guy over them instead of their own personal deficits and attribute the black guy being more confident to some sort of primal aggressive urges.

I wonder how long we'll have to wait before we hear about this guy returning to campus with a gun.

@#1583313 - He won't. He'll blame the "Librul Media", "Obama's America", "Obamanation" and "BRA (Black Run America)" and/or "ZOG (Zionist Occupied Government)" for the consequences he faces.

Funny. The "Party of Personal Responsibility" (GOP) only trots out that canard when talking about problems minorities and the poor face. They never take personal responsibility for their own failings or the consequences of their actions. It's always someone else's fault. It's always the minorities, the unions, the government/government workers, Democrats, immigrants, foreigners, Muslims, atheists, liberals, socialists, communists, etc. fault. Nothing is ever their own fault.

Remember that one scene from "Die Hard With a Vengeance"? Just sayin', if we're looking for a fitting punishment..

Kind of going off of what #1583313 is saying, either this is truly a racist idiot who is backpedaling because he got caught and doesn't want to get an epic ass kicking from the student body, or this is an IRL trolling idiot who is backpedaling because he got caught and doesn't want to get an epic ass kicking from the student body.

@ Vox - So true. One guy on Stormfront, UnderlyingWrath, feels that he is entitled to have a white woman because he is a white guy. You will notice him repeating this same sentiment as you are mining for quotes for RSTDT.

@Vox - About #1583401

Well, if that's the case, the girl in question prefers a black woman, since this cretin & his cronies defaced LGBT targets as well.

Personal vendetta meets vendetta against LGBTs & Non-White folks.

And this bozo has a website? OBIETALK.COM?

I'd love to read more about this Pecker & his Woodies.

Hey, there's more to this:
The confessed perpetrator refused to take credit for the most inflammatory incident, when a man was observed wearing a Klu Klux Klan outfit was spotted on campus. He also denied he was responsible for all of the incidents, or that he posted on or was affiliated with either “Obietalk.com” or “Oberchan.com.”

Is obietalk/oberchan another dorky hate forum? Sounds like more fun material resources for us FSTDTers! *woohoo*! Who wants to do the honors? My stomach's too weak.

*Looked it up* Okay, it's a forum for students at the college. I feel stupid.

Guys. The whole thing's likely a hoax.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/26/oberlin-racism-incidents_n_3811610.html

What galls me is that one of the guys worked for a "Vote Obama" campaign. The guys were being trolls...really stupid. Now, Progressives are made to look stupid & these guys shot themselves in the foot.

9/6/2013 4:57:08 PM



@Spuki

Well first of all, even in the Raw Story version of the event the suspect claimed it was a "joke"--not that we should necessarily believe it.

The people calling it a hoax so far are folks like Michelle Malkin who are completely and utterly untrustworthy. And neither the link you posted nor the Raw Story link has info about the students working for a "Vote Obama" event. I'm not saying that is definitively not the case, but right now it just looks like a) racists with a bad sense of humor or b) non-racist morons with a bad sense of humor. Either way I recommend a good hard pimp slap.

9/6/2013 6:00:14 PM

SpukiKitty

I agree with you, now that you've said it. though I think my getting backhanded is a bit harsh. Perhaps you facepalming would be more appropriate.

The "Obama" thing was from another article. I, too also think Michelle Malkin is a major nutzoid.

9/6/2013 6:14:35 PM



@Spuki

Oh I meant backhanding the punks who pulled that prank, not you.

Don't we post a lot of quotes from Niggermania? I suspect this is what the average user of that site looks like.

Ahhhh....Thanks. Glad I'm not the whacked one. The dorks deserve a good hard slap in the face with a large muskellunge.
