Skip to comments.Oberlin KKK Sighting Might’ve Just Been a Blanket

Ohio liberal-arts school Oberlin College has been plagued recently by an uncomfortable amount of hate-speech incidents, mostly in the form of ugly graffiti, but it was the eyewitness account of a person in a KKK-like outfit that put things over the edge: Classes were canceled and "A Day of Solidarity" arranged instead. "We have made significant progress in the investigation of these instances," school president Marvin Krislov told students yesterday, but the local Chronicle-Telegram reports a more innocuous explanation: "Oberlin police Lt. Mike McCloskey said that authorities did find a pedestrian wrapped in a blanket. He said police interviewed another witness later in the day and that person also saw a female walking with a blanket."
It does make sense that the campus would be a little jumpy. The student paper ran down the more substantiated events leading up to the sighting, including a robbery with racial undertones, along with swastikas and the words nigger and faggot scrawled around campus. "We believe these actions represent the work of a very small number of very cowardly people," said Krislov. "I am shocked that this happened at our college, which I love. It hurts all of us."
Two notable Oberlin alumni also chimed in, representing the full spectrum of reactions. "The self-victimization/manufactured racism impulse at Oberlin and at so many higher mis-education institutions across the country is as strong and poisonous as ever," wrote Michelle Malkin, who has come a long way on her journey to loony right-wing sainthood. Lena Dunham, meanwhile, tweeted, "Hey Obies, remember the beautiful, inclusive and downright revolutionary history of the place you call home. Protect each other."
It takes all kinds.
And the writer calls Michelle Malkin "loony".
Forgive my cynicism, but I suspect these incidents of being “False Flag Operations”.
It would not be the first time.
Yawn. Yes, Oberlin, that hotbed of nazism and white supremacy.
We've all seen how this is going to play out. Eventually someone catches the perp scrawling "hate speech" somewhere and Surprise! Surprise! the perp turns out to be a transgendered/minority/lesbian/member of the oppressed class/whatever "trying to bring attention to the issue."
It takes absolutely no stretch of the imagination to visualize exactly how this ends.
I recall unrest at another campus here in Ohio. Let’s hope the left rejoices no more martyrs.
I'm surprised the media even reports on this stuff anymore. They wind up with egg on their face every. single. time.
Today its just a white blanket. But if nothing is done, tomorrow it will be a white blanket holding a Pop-Tart gnawed into the shape of a gun.
The news media isn't about news anymore, its about activism.
Next, we’ll find out that all the “hate graffiti” was scrawled by a lib trying to “raise awareness.”
The sequence has a couple more steps:
Yes. It’s a PATTERN!
“...Classes were canceled and “A Day of Solidarity” arranged instead. ...”
Yup, I really would want my progeny to go to that joke of a college, which might offer such academic degrees as... “Advanced Lesbian Underwater F*rting”, or perhaps “Degenerate Ear and Pee-pee Tatooing Art.
I did a lot of biking around the area because I didn't know too many people. The area to the west of Amherst is great for bicycle riding, its flat and there are few cars. It is mostly wide open farm land.
One Saturday, I biked to the Cedar Point amusement park, just because I had nothing else to do. I stayed too long. I ended up biking back home to Amherst past dusk. I purposely took back roads because I didn't have a light on my bike and I wanted to avoid car traffic on the main roads. I knew the road pretty well, so I wasn't lost.
Perhaps 2-3 miles west of Amherst (which would be about 4 miles northwest of Oberlin), I saw a large bon fire. Its a little hard to judge distance, but I could clearly make out a dozen or so people walking around in all white clothing, perhaps from a distance of 3-4 football field lengths.
Yes, it was 32 years ago, but there was most definitely a KKK presence near Oberlin back then
What would happen if a real KKK member was present—taking a walk? What will happen when real racism replaces fake false flag racism?
Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? Wouldn’t liberals support a KKK member’s right to free speech, just like they did the Nazis in Skokie, Illinois?
If it was a mattress, it would probably Sandra Fluke.....
