Destroying the Liberal narrative of violent Trump supporters one fake hate crime at a time.
Once you read the details, it will all make perfect sense.
Halley Bass, a 21-year old student in Ann Arbor, Michigan, reported to police that she was attacked and scratched in the face by a violent Trump supporter following the election.
She lied about that incident and has pleaded guilty for filing a false police report.
Watch Bass talk to the judge:
Halley Bass admitted in court that she fabricated a story about a strange man scratching her face in downtown Ann Arbor on Nov. 15.
“I was suffering from depression at the time,” Bass told Judge Elizabeth Pollard Hines. “I made a superficial scratch on my face. It was visible and I was embarrassed about what I’d done. So I made up a story and told a friend that a stranger had done it while I was walking. I was encouraged to report it to the police. I made the mistake of doing that.”
At the time, Bass claimed her attack was part of the surge in hate crimes following the election of Donald Trump a week earlier. She told police she was targeted for wearing a solidarity pin connected to Great Britain’s “Brexit” vote.
‘A surge of hate crimes’?
This one is a little more recent:
Those aren’t the only ones, either.
There are more, but if we were to cover them all, our ClashDaily Editors would have no time to eat and sleep.
Back to Ms. Bass.
She filed a police report stating that she had walked from class to a Starbucks, then, as she was on her way to a movie theater, she was attacked by a man who scratched her face with what she thought was a safety pin.
Aaaand why would he do that?
Because she was wearing a safety pin.
She must’ve nearly crapped her pants when the Feds showed up to question her.
On Nov. 17, Ann Arbor police Detective Robin Lee and Special Agent Sean Nicol of the Federal Bureau of Investigation sat down with Bass at the Ann Arbor Police Department for an interview.
The investigators observed the 21-year-old was nervous and asked why she was wearing the Brexit pin.
“… The significance of the safety pins is that … to sort of like to show a solidarity with immigrants who feel threatened by Brexit. Um … but now it’s … for people who feel threatened by president elect, Trump’s his name … Um so it was, it was to show, yeah, solidarity with the people like we show your fear and we want to help you get through it,” she said, according to the report.
Bass also heard of other incidents on campus, including the incident of a woman wearing a hijab who said a man threatened to light her on fire if she didn’t take it off. Ann Arbor police later determined that incident was a hoax too, though. The woman who falsely reported the crime is not being prosecuted in that case, however.
After that November interview, investigators reviewed surveillance footage of the area, and didn’t see Bass.
Investigators called BS on Bass’s story telling her it sounded ‘over the top’.
Bass eventually confessed that she had cut her own face after getting out of her Woman’s Literature class.
Oh, yes, my friends.
She’s taking a Women’s Lit class.
“I had been in a discussion in my women’s lit weirdly and there were a few people in my class that sort of said some things that scared me,” she said. “…It was more like I wanted a concrete reason to be scared then to just talk, I guess.”

To be quite honest, I can’t say that I disagree with her there.
Sure, I wouldn’t be scratching my own face with a safety pin.
That would be completely stupid.
But I’m sure I’d be frightened by the comments in a Women’s Literature class, too… though probably not for the same reasons.
Because a Women’s Lit class sounds like it could be summed up by this:
Bass is facing up to 93 days in jail and/or a $500 fine.
These things need to be punished.
Are you getting tired of the ‘fake hate crimes’?
And will the Media (D) ever report them for the hoaxes they are?
