In Jackson Michigan, 54 year old transgendered activist Nikki Joly has been arrested and faces trial on one felony count of arson, accused of burning his house down in a fire that also killed his 2 German shepherds and 3 cats. He has since been charged with two felony counts of killing or torturing an animal.
The fire was originally investigated as a hate crime, but later evidence however pointed towards Joly, with the suspicion being that he did it to draw attention and sympathy to the gay rights community. According to the Detroit News: “A police investigative report suggests a possible reason for the fire.Two people who worked with Joly at St. Johns United Church of Christ, where the Jackson Pride Center was located, said he had been frustrated the controversy over gay rights had died down with the passage of the nondiscrimination law, according to the report. The church officials, Barbara Shelton and Bobby James, when asked by police about a possible motive for the fire, said Joly was disappointed the Jackson Pride Parade and Festival, held five days before the blaze, hadn’t received more attention or protests.” Joly, who was a prominent activist in the lgbtq community wrote on social media after the fire “Yes, be angry, be very angry, Use that anger to force good! Use that anger to make change.” St. Johns United Church of Christ, where the Jackson Pride Center was located received up to $58,000 in donations afterwards.
We`ve noted in the past how mass media and the sjw left so quickly hand out those purple hearts of victimhood to anyone who claims to have been a victim of a hate crime. Without any kind of investigation into their claims, they immediately elevate that “victim” to a status equivalent to a national celebrity, trotting them out on news broadcasts, holding protests against hate in their honor, and raising tons of money for them. This immediate attention and glorification is a hard thing to resist for those seeking such attention and self glorification. In reality, that unquestioning support and immediate glorification for said victim actually encourages more of these fake hate crimes and as seen with the Jussie Smollet case, this unwavering support of a victim before any facts come out does more to damage the national climate of race relations than help it. As we`ve said in the past, not only do these “hate crimes” create fear and distress in those of the group supposedly targeted, but it also creates a backlash and hatred against whites who are already targeted as a group regularly for collective racism. Looking at how many of these hate crimes turn out to be fake, it is quite evident that race relations aren`t as bad as they are made out to be. Such incidents like this do nothing but erode them however as both whites and the supposed targeted community become the victims.
Aside from mass media`s implicitness in encouraging these hoaxes, when it comes to the sjw community and the left in general, in our article titled “Another Transgendered Goes On A Violent Rampage” we`ve also noted the danger when it comes to the left`s inability to place reality over emotion in relation to the mental and physical health of those they claim to advocate for. This is another very real subject that needs to be addressed when looking at the state of a community who is repeatedly caught faking hate crimes.
