Oregon politician shares racist hate letter he received…that he wrote to himself

Another racist hate hoax has been revealed

If there is so much racism and hate in America, why on earth do people keep having to stage fake hate crimes?  We would have real stories every hour on the news, not hoax after hoax.

To be clear, I am not suggesting racism isn’t real and that hate crimes don’t occur. People will always have prejudice against other people for a number of reasons.

What I am saying is that it’s not a pandemic or whatever the left is calling it now.

If it were, all of these so-called victims wouldn’t have to make up hate hoaxes.

The most famous ones, of course, are Jussie Smollett and the NASCAR noose disaster featuring attention hog and all-around jerk Bubba Wallace.

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

Now we have another instance of a supposed hate crime that turned out to be nothing more than a staged plea for attention.

An Oregon politician claimed that he received a “racist hate letter.” He posted it on Facebook and shamed America for being racist and intolerant – the usual BS these people do.

But in the end, it turns out there was no racist letter, or at least not from someone else…the man wrote it to himself.

From Daily Wire

On June 24th, local media outlets in Oregon ran with a story from Jonathan Lopez – who recently ran for public office – that claimed he had received a racist letter. Lopez posted the alleged letter on his Facebook account where it was shared by hundreds within the first 24 hours. The post has since been removed.

KEPR is one of the outlets that reported Lopez’s claim.

“We now more than ever must address these issues that are destroying and distancing us from unification,” Lopez wrote on Facebook. “We must be mature and adults about things and address them properly at a table or meeting in which we can come to an agreement or mutual understanding!”

“I hold no resentment for whom ever wrote this; I’m just simply heart broken for the lack of knowledge, education and respect missing. I pray for you and wish you prosperity in your life. God bless us all!” he concluded.

The letter Lopez claimed he received read, in part: “Don’t waste your time trying to become anything in this county we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other f****** Mexicans in the area!” The letter ends by stating, “Sincerely, America!”

Lopez previously ran for a commissioner seat in Umatilla County but lost in the primary. He reported the letter to Hermiston Police, who investigated Lopez’s claims and determined that, yet again, someone who publicly claimed to be the victim of a hate crime was not, in fact, a victim.

I like how he makes himself sound like a saint, forgiving the evil racist and praying for the person.

In addition, turns out this guy also used stolen valor.

Lopez never served in the U.S. Coast Guard as stated, which would be a violation of the 2013 Stolen Valor Act. Lopez has not provided documentation to the East Oregonian to confirm his claim of Coast Guard service when asked.

In the end, police determined that Lopez sent the letter to himself and eventually he even admitted to it and they’re frustrated. They are running short thanks to the pandemic and they wasted time and resources on this clown.

Now, he will be facing charges for filing a false police report and stolen valor.

Good riddance.
