Black Posed As A ‘White Supremacist’

A shocking (albeit belated) revelation from CNN:

Man pleads guilty to racial threat using fake Facebook account

(CNN) — An African-American man has pleaded guilty after being accused of impersonating a white supremacist in a fictitious Facebook account to make death threats against an African-American university student.

Dyron L. Hart, 20, of Poplarville, Mississippi, pleaded guilty Wednesday before U.S. District Judge Kurt D. Engelhardt to one count of communicating threats in interstate commerce, according to a Department of Justice statement.

Hart admitted creating the fictitious account in November, pretending to be a white supremacist outraged by the election of Barack Obama as the nation’s first African-American president, the statement said.

He then transmitted a death threat via Facebook to an African-American student at Nicholls State University in Louisiana, saying he wanted to kill African-Americans because of Obama’s election, according to the statement.

A court document provided by the U.S. attorney’s office said Hart told an FBI interviewer that he intended the threat to be a prank "to get a reaction."

The document said Hart admitted creating the Facebook profile under the name "Colten Brodoux" and used a photo of a Caucasian man that he found on a white supremacist Web site.

"This is an extremely odd case, a very unusual case," said U.S. Attorney Jim Letten of the Eastern District of Louisiana. "The contents of the messages were extremely troubling and provocative and very threatening."

Hart will face a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when sentenced November 18, the statement said.

Faithful readers will recall that we reported this back in November.

At that time we noted that the story was only reported by the local news. And even now with this admission of guilt, it is only being reported by CNN and none of the others in our watchdog media.

Even so, CNN leaves out some of the more piquant details about Mr. Hart’s emails.

Here are some excerpts from that earlier article from the Associated Press:

FBI investigators trace messages to phony Facebook profile

By JOHN A. COLVIN
Nov 14, 2008

A 19-year-old Mississippi man is facing federal charges after allegedly sending threatening e-mails with racial overtones to  students at several universities, including Nicholls State University and LSU, according to an arrest affidavit.

On Wednesday, FBI agents arrested Dyron Hart, of Poplarville, Miss., and booked him with sending threatening e-mails, stemming from messages he sent to three black students attending Nicholls State, in Thibodaux.

Hart is black.

Hart told the FBI that he wanted to “to create a reaction” after Barack Obama was elected president, according to an arrest affidavit…

Hart allegedly created a false profile of a white man on Facebook, a social networking Web site. He is accused of using that profile to send e-mail messages to people listed as his own friends.

The affidavit included the entire text of the identical e-mail messages sent to two women students and one male student at Nicholls State, along with students at LSU, at universities in Alabama and Mississippi, as well as other recipients in the Poplarville, Miss., area.

It included four racial epithets.

Hart allegedly wrote, “I bet your all proud that you just got a black president huh. Well im here to tell, Barack just maid me your worst nightmare. … Because of him I have to kill you. I have plans to off over three thousand (racial epithet deleted) in a months time because of Barack.”

Hart allegedly went on to say he was debating whether to start off by killing the people he selected to receive his messages.

“By the time you’ve read this I will have already planned on how I will kill you,” Hart wrote, according to the affidavit. “I’m just letting you know so your not surprised when a random white man is walking down the street just split your (expletive deleted) head wide open.”

The e-mails were sent to the Nicholls students in the early morning hours of Nov. 5, just hours after Obama was declared president-elect

Funny how CNN neglected to mention these “racial overtones.”

And just imagine the uproar if a real white supremacist had really sent such threatening ‘hate speech’ within hours of Mr. Obama’s election.

The Southern Poverty Law Center would finally have had a real story.

    Whenever I hear a story like this (every time) I think of Tarsha Claiborne. She was at the University of Iowa and a dental student. Someone was threatening black dental students (repeatedly) with death, terrorizing some in person (putting red pasta with words about dead black brains on the doors), sending emails, bomb threats, etc. People were naturally and appropriately upset. Tarsha Claiborne was even interviewed on TV (she is black, btw) saying how scared she was. Of course, it was Tarsha doing it. When she was caught – complete silence from the administration too timid to call her a racist terrorist pig. They explained it away as stress. No jail time for terror threats and scaring the shit out of students doing a hard program. Then, the spokesperson for UIowa, Ann Rhodes (obviously completely unqualified) said at a news conference “I figured it was going to be a white guy between 25 and 55 because they’re the root of most evil”. No real consequences for her either.

      Tawana Brawley, anyone?

    • Liberals Demise

      ……………….and Uncle Al Sharpton!!
      He brought Tawana to the Hampton Roads, Va. area for her own safety. Apparently, some KKK people had threatened her life so Al whisked her away. Then came the day when the “TRUTH” came out and poor Uncle Al disappeared in the middle of the night without sooooo much as a “Sorry whiteys”.
      Nothing became of this either, btw!!

      Remember that Ivy League Prof who put the noose on her own door?

    • pdsand

      Or the one Ann Coulter talks about who wrote racial epithets on her own car.
      Or the perpetrator of “the missing and murdered children of atlanta” back in the early 80s that turned out to be black. But they still created the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Atlanta because of that case, and everybody just KNEW it was some old racist white guy.

    It’s an old trick. If you can’t incite the other side into a reaction then you stage a phony incident to get the ball rolling. Sort of like how the Nazis staged an invasion of Polish soldiers taking over a German radio station and airing the incident over live broadcast. All of course to justify the invasion of Poland. I think that a white supremacist would use other direct approaches to spew out his hatred rather than pose as a mole on a website such as Facebook. Besides, the few supremacists I’ve had the misfortune of running across would never pretend to be the skin color of the people they hate.

    ” Southern Poverty Law Center would finally have had a real story”
    They SPLC were probably behind the fake blogger and many others. They base their reports by unidentified bloggers and “tax” tea party protests as hate groups. Their Intelligence division is fake too. They are just turf rooters. Obomies are fear mongers and liars.

    12 Gauge Obama wrote the organizers he worked with, used “race baiting” even had their own fake mafia to go around and scare store owners. mafia style. His mother complained about his violence and want of power, and that’s why she sent him back to Hawaii.

      Exactly my thought as well, Canary.

      The The Southern Poverty Law Center could plant quite a few “dirty birds” around the country with their $220 million now, couldn’t they?

    “By the time you’ve read this I will have already planned on how I will kill you,” Hart wrote, according to the affidavit. “I’m just letting you know so your not surprised when a random white man is walking down the street just split your (expletive deleted) head wide open.”

    This is EXACTLY what black racists want.

    Just like white racists tell each other (and try to tell the rest of us) that any random black person might be the one that mugs you, or rapes you, or shoots you for your shoes or whatever else, these people want other black people to live in fear of white people. Not some white people, not a particular white person–these people want black folks to live in utter fear of any and all white people.
