Vassar CollegeWhat better way to ensure job security than to play the role of nemesis to that which you are assigned to defend against?

Earlier this month, Vassar College sent an email to students advising them of at least six recent incidents of hateful and insensitive messages being scrawled on student residences. The messages were reported to include “Avoid Being B*tches,” “F*ck N*ggers,” and “Hey Tranny. Know Your Place.”

“This is unacceptable and members of our community should be able to learn and work in environments that are free of hurtful expressions and behaviors,” wrote Edward Pittman, Bias Incident Response Team coordinator and dean of the College for Campus Life and Diversity.

As it turns out, the “bias incidents” were actually elaborate hoaxes — and the perpetrator is none other than a student on the Bias Incident Response Team, according to The Daily Caller. Hoaxes of this nature appear to be a growing trend.

The Daily Caller reported:

Five days after the email was sent, Vassar President Catharine Hill sent a follow-up email announcing that the bias incidents were hoaxes perpetrated by two students. The students wrote the vile messages and then filed the reports themselves, claiming to be the victims of unknown haters.

Hill noted that the two anonymous students had admitted responsibility and withdrawn from the college voluntarily.

But in an exclusive, The Daily Caller reported that one of the perpetrators was Genesis Hernandez, a transgendered member of the Bias Incident Response Team and vice president of the school’s student government.

The school declined The Daily Caller’s request for comment, but Hill did state in her email to students: “The outcome of this most recent investigation in no way diminishes our commitment to working toward a more just, diverse, egalitarian and inclusive campus community.”

Assuming, of course, that your beliefs fit into the tidy little box of acceptable views that liberal colleges will tolerate.
