As I recall, the East German secret police used to desecrate Jewish temples and cemeteries in West Germany for the propaganda it provided them, as proof that the NATO countries were still hotbeds of fascism and anti-Semitism. Indeed, many people still suspect Hitler of being behind the Reichstag fire and Stalin of assassinating Kirov. (We won't even go into the hoaxes in English history.) Provocation is an old tactic.

American college campuses are the most fertile grounds for fake hate. They're marinated in identity politics and packed with self-indulgent, tenured radicals suspended in the 1960s. In the name of enlightenment and tolerance, these institutions of higher learning breed a corrosive culture of left-wing self-victimization. Take my alma mater, Oberlin College. Please.
