The Associated Press is reporting the latest in a string of fraudulent high profile “hate crime” reports by homosexual activists who are evidently having trouble coming up with legitimate incidents of “hate crimes” against homosexuals to bolster their deceptive agenda. “No problem, we’ll just keep making them up,” apparently goes the mindset.

As Congress reportedly prepares to vote Thursday on “hate crimes” bill H.R. 1592, the evidence is overwhelming. The entire concept is built on a foundation of fraud.

The AP reports as follows:

A gay rights group is canceling a planned rally on the Minnesota State University Moorhead campus.

This after police say a previously reported assault was not a hate crime.

The Fargo-Moorhead Ten Percent Society says it supports the decision of Moorhead police and it will be canceling its march planned for Thursday night.

Edina native Paul Marquardt had reported that he was taunted for his sexual orientation and attacked by four men last week.

But Moorhead Deputy Police Chief Bob Larson says investigators heard a conflicting story.

So they interviewed Marquardt again and he said he didn't hear any anti-gay remarks and believes he was pushed down and injured by unknown assailants.

Although there may be very isolated incidences of legitimate bias-motivated crimes against homosexuals, they’re anything but epidemic as homosexual activists would have you believe. Truth be told, the whole “needle in a haystack” thing comes to mind.

Consider the case of 72-year-old “gay”-identified Andrew Anthos of Detroit. Investigators in Michigan have determined that this “hate crime” — the very “hate crime” — which was exploited by liberals in Congress to whip up an emotional frenzy of support to justify introduction of H.R. 1592, was a false report from the start. Anthos was the victim of an unfortunate accident. That’s right, the “hate crime” never even happened. The left should be ashamed for using this poor man as their “hate crimes” poster boy for this fraudulent piece of legislation.

But this is just par for the course; the list goes on and on. In fact, you need only look at the most famous “hate crime” of all — Matthew Shepard — to arrive at that conclusion. The evidence determined that Shepard’s murder was not a “hate crime” (a lie still widely propagated by the homosexual lobby, the media and liberal lawmakers), but rather, was a bungled robbery attempt.
