Monday's HOT MIC

It turns out that leftists aren't the only ones who fake hate crimes. A guy who said he was stabbed by an "anti-fascist" for looking like a neo-Nazi has come clean and said he made the whole thing up.

KUSA:

Sheridan Police say the man who reported he was stabbed in a fast food restaurant’s parking lot due to his ‘Neo Nazi’ haircut made the whole thing up…

Joshua Witt, 26, called police on Aug. 16 from the Steak ‘n Shake at 3502 South River Point Parkway. He told officers he had been the victim of a stabbing…

Investigators reviewed surveillance video from the area where Witt said the attack occurred: it showed no suspect running from the scene.

What it did show, however, was Witt exiting a nearby sporting goods store after purchasing a small knife inside.

Witt claims he cut himself "accidentally," which if fine -- but why perpetrate a hoax playing the victim?

You don't have to be a liberal to crave the attention garnered by pretending you're a victim. In this case, not only do people feel sorry for Witt but he also gets his 15 minutes as a hero on the right.

Heady stuff, that.
