Hateful messages found at Vassar College actually came from the school’s Bias Incident Response Team

A new report from the Daily Caller finds that reports of bias incidents at Vassar College involving hateful messages left on students’ doors were actually elaborate hoaxes orchestrated by none other then a member of the campus’ Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT).

According to the Daily Caller:

This fall semester at the liberal arts college in New York saw a curiously high number of bias incident reports. On Nov. 14, the college sent a mass email to students advising them that Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT) had received at least six reports in the last few months of hateful and insensitive messages being scrawled and spray painted on student residences.

[…]

The email also outlined BIRT’s purpose and role in bias incident response. The task force receives the reports of bias incidents, meets with victims, and provides support for campus efforts to foster diversity and inclusion.

The hateful messages included “Avoid Being Bi***es” and “Hey Tranny. Know Your Place.”

“If you were to say this is the exact type of thing the Bias Incident Response Team was created for, you would be correct,” Stu joked on radio this morning. “Because all of the messages came from the Bias Incident Response Team.”

The Daily Caller learned the BIRT task force had one student-member, Genesis Hernandez, a transgender who was vice president of the Vassar Student Association (VSA). As it turns out, Hernandez and another student were the one who wrote the vile messages and then filed the reports with BIRT, claiming to be the victims of unknown haters. The students have since voluntarily left the college.

While hate speech of any kind should never be tolerated. Pat and Stu couldn’t help but question how offensive the messages found at Vassar really were.

“You know, I'm not an expert linguist in hate messages scrawled on walls,” Stu admitted. “Bit has any legitimate group scrawled, ‘Hey, tranny. Know your place’?”

“I think it would be harsher, you know, it would be just a tad nastier,” Pat agreed. “And ‘Avoid Being a B-word’… Not that insensitive really.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
