Crying Wolf: Hate Crime Hoaxes In America

A thoroughly documented and extensively footnoted study of false and fabricated racist, anti-Gay, and anti-Semitic “hate crimes” actually perpetrated by the “victims” themselves to gain sympathy, advance a political agenda, or for monetary gain. Reviews: (Wilcox’s Report) “contains one documented example after another of extremists of all political stripes - but mostly from groups generally considered societal victims - who have been caught attempting to fabricate “hate crimes.” Phil Stanford, The (Portland) Oregonian, 13 January 1993. “Hoo boy, talk about a powderkeg! This explosive book examines a subject nobody wants to talk about - people who fake hate crimes, such as physical attacks and the destruction or defacing of property that are alleged to be motivated by the victim’s race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.” Russ Kick, Outposts, 1995. From the notorious Tawana Brawley hoax to cases reported only locally, each hoax is analyzed in terms of apparent motives, techniques employed, and payoff to the “victim.” Crying Wolf also discusses the intended and unintended consequences of these hoaxes, and the role of special interest groups in generating irresponsible ‘hate crime” statistics. A list of traits to help identify hoaxes is included. 1995. Laird Wilcox, Author. ISBN 0-933592-82-5. $19.95 Postpaid!

The Watchdogs: Anti-Racist Watchdog Groups in America

New Second Edition! The anti-racist “watchdog” movement in the United States consists of a number of organizations who “monitor” and combat the activities of their ideological opponents, which includes a wide range of organizations and individuals who have nothing to do with racism. The watchdog elite consists of the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center, both noted for enormous resources, massive legal staffs, and access to media and law enforcement to promote their agenda. The watchdog “second string” which includes the Center For Democratic Renewal and Political Research Associates, are noted for their radical political agenda and extensive “links and ties” to extremist groups of the far left. These four organizations are closely studied in this detailed investigative report, which reveals a little-known side that they would prefer kept from the public. With the publication of the FBI’s Megiddo Report, which was compiled in part by agenda-driven watchdog groups, this issue is especially serious. Included are documented instances of illegal spying, theft of police files, fund-raising irregularities, irresponsible and fraudulent claims, perjury, vicious and unprincipled name-calling, ritual defamation, libel, intolerance of criticism, harassment, stalking, and a callous disregard for the civil liberties of their opponents and critics. 2nd Edition, 1999. Laird Wilcox, Author. ISBN 0-933592-96-5. $24.95 Postpaid!
