You have to love it when the very systemic racism we’re told is so rife in America caused a Democratic political candidate, Jonathan Lopez, to pen and post a letter to himself and take his claim of a hate crime to the police because he couldn’t find it in reality.
His letter said,
“Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county…we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other f–king Mexicans in the area!”
Lopez took to social media to peddle his hate hoax by uploading the letter and claiming he “holds no resentment for whomever wrote this…just simply heartbroken for the lack of knowledge, education, and respect missing…I pray for you and wish you prosperity in your life.”
Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston expressed his dismay after the conclusion of the investigation with the following comment:
“The time spent on this fictitious claim means time lost on other matters, not to mention it needlessly adds to the incredible tension that exists in our nation today…Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media.”
After Lopez admitted his crime he tried to downplay it by saying that things had spiraled out of control. Really? Who knew?
Is this why Democrats want to defund the police so they don’t have the resources to catch out hoaxes?
His case will be forwarded to the Umatilla County District Attorney’s office for initiating a false report, a Class A misdemeanor in Oregon.
Welcome to 2020 where the real racists are the very people claiming they’re the victims.
