An Oregon politician showed off a letter addressed to himself in June, and the letter was extremely nasty:
“Umatilla County kills wetbacks like you and are dumped in the fields and river,” read the profanity-laced, rabidly pro-America message. “That’s why our cops are the best!”
Jonathan Lopez, 29, claimed he got the letter in late June. It was signed, “Sincerely, America.”
Local authorities in Hermiston, Ore. revealed on July 6 that their investigation found Lopez wrote the hateful rant himself and went on to make false statements about it to the police and on social media. They said the criminal investigation into the document has been closed but that Lopez may face charges for making a false report to the police.
Lopez, who is Latino, claims he never intended to file a police report and wanted to use the fake letter as an example but the case “spiraled out of control.”
Leftists, Muslims, homosexuals and transgenders have shown a pattern of creating false hate crimes in which they are the victims, to attract sympathy and inflame emotions.
“From the onset, this alleged incident has been thoroughly investigated,” Police Chief Jason Edmiston told the East Oregonian.
Lopez has now made a written and verbal admission that the letter was fake, KOMO News reported.
The politician claimed to have received the racist letter on June 23 from an anonymous person. The next day he told police and local media that he did not know who sent it and had found it in his mailbox.
