Noose Found On Leftist Duke University Campus

How soon till we learn that this is a #RaceHoax?

(WRAL) Messages of inclusion and diversity once again flowed from a Triangle school on Wednesday after a noose was found hanging from a tree at Duke University.

The incident is the latest in a series of race-related incidents on college campuses nationwide that have catapulted race and higher education into the national conversation.

Hundreds silently marched from Duke’s West Campus to the school’s Bryan Center plaza, then held a forum in front of Duke Chapel after the noose was found hanging on a tree at the plaza earlier that morning.

There are three possibilities: first, it’s a hoax, designed to elicit the exact response that was seen at Duke U Wednesday. It is not out of the realm of reality to think that this may be a hoax.

Second, what was the date yesterday? That’s right, this may have simply been a monumentally stupid prank, something that is not out of the realm of possibility on a college campus, especially with alcohol flowing.

Third, yes, it could be real. If so, let’s consider that Duke U is a typical Leftist campus full of Leftists, in a city (Durham, NC) that is overwhelmingly Leftist, residing in a county (Durham county) that is also overwhelmingly Leftist.

Incidents away from Duke, including the killings of black men by police officers in Ferguson, Mo. and New York City, along with racist chants from fraternity members at the University of Oklahoma that went viral, have increased racial tensions on campus, Sunder said afterwards.

Interesting. Neither killing was actually about race, except in the minds of some people and the media. Though, the death of Eric Garner was entirely avoidable, and showed poor judgement on the part of the police officers involved. Michael Brown has only himself to blame.

Changing perceptions on race must start on a more personalized level, Duke Provost Sally Kornbluth said.

“This is a macro aggression, and it’s the micro aggressions that happen every single day that matter,” she said. “Many of you may look at yourselves and say ‘I would never say anything racist, I would never do anything racist.’ But the truth of the matter is there’s no standard here. We’re all complicit if we hear these things, see these things and don’t say it.”

Funny how so many “racial” incidents keep happening on Leftist college campuses, eh?

If you check the #DukeNoose hashtag, as well as comments throughout multiple stories at WRAL and others, there are a lot of people who are wondering if this was either a hoax or an April Fools Day prank gone very, very wrong.

    Teach
    Do you despise Duke for being leftist ?
    I would tend to think that it is quite mainstream politically for a universty
    I would also be reluctant to tar brush any university left right or middle of the road. For what is most likely the action of an indivifual

    That’s racist, John. Tar brush?

    Snark aside, John makes a good point in that last sentence. Perhaps h3 can notify all those who are painting with a wide brush of that sentiment?

    Conservatives seem so proud of not attending college.

    It’s just a matter of time before it’s discovered that some SJW student or faculty member will be exposed as the perpetrator of this horrible “hate crime”. Then they’ll be hailed for “raising awareness” about this issue that didn’t even exist until they did it.

  5. […] William Teach has the story of, wait for it, a noose found hanging at Duke […]

    Liberals seem so proud to major in victim studies and then spend 20 years working at Starbucks to pay off their student loans.

    much ado about nothing

    Why don’t the moderate Muslims RWNJs condemn these acts of terrorism by their own? This so-called religion political movement of peace is violent and coercive at its core. Most of the terrorist acts in the US are now committed by Islamists RWNJists and are not condemned by the Imams RWNJ bloggers, but celebrated. Muslim Conservative leaders don’t condemn the terrorists but instead blame the victims.

    That was pitiful, “Jeffrey”. You know good and well it was a looney lefty ginning up fake outrage.

  10. jl says:

    “This so called political movement is violent at its core.” Really? Data, please. Or is it hiding with all the global warming data?

  11. Jeffery says:

    Conservatism worships the rights of majority and the monied, over the rights of minorities and workers. Its core is the hatred it projects toward the “others” – non-white, non-Christian, homosexual. From the KKK to the Birchers to the TeaBirchers. Anti-education, anti-commonweal, anti-cooperation, anti-negotiation, illogical – thoughtless, cruel, unsympathetic, aggressive, frightened, fundamentalist, clannish and brutish.

    Not all conservatives are racists, but all racists are conservative.
