White Douche Is So Committed To Racism That He Stabbed Himself And Blamed A Fake Black Guy

If you’ve tuned in to Fox News, Alex Jones, or pretty much any right-wing media lately, you a.) are probably an idiot if you did it for any reason aside from getting a good laugh and b.) probably heard the story of the evil black man who viciously slashed a white guy with a knife because he looked like he had a Nazi haircut.

The story came complete with a photo, which the “victim,” Joshua Witt, posted on Facebook to accompany his lie that a black “anti-fascist” ran up to him at a Steak ‘n Shake in Sheridan, Colorado.

“Are you one of them neo-Nazis?” he claimed the man, who it turns out does not exist, asked him. Fox News reported in a story they removed from their website but did not bother to correct:

Joshua Witt, 26, was getting out of his car at Steak ’n Shake in Sheridan, Colorado when a man ran over to him yelling, “Are you one of them neo-Nazis?”

The man aimed for his head over his car door, but Witt blocked the blow with his hand, which needed three stitches.

“I threw my hands up and once the knife kind of hit, I dived back into my car and shut the door and watched him run off west, behind my car.”

Witt, who is in no way a neo-Nazi, joked that he believes it was indeed his haircut that confused the anti-fascist, and said he’s considering changing his style. He has no other marks that would make his attacker mistake him for a white nationalist, he said.

“Apparently, my haircut is considered a neo-Nazi statement,” he told The New York Post.

Wow. Scary stuff.

As it turns out, Witt actually accidentally cut himself and used it as an opportunity to further the right-wing narrative that those who oppose fascism — especially black people — are just as bad as the Nazis they oppose.

Witt even filed a police report, which was a huge mistake because police reviewed surveillance video and discovered that he was lying about everything but the self-inflicted knife wound. Eventually, Witt admitted he lied and was charged with “falsely reporting to authorities.”

His haircut is, of course, actually popular with Nazis but is popular outside white supremacist circles as well — so popular that some, including white rapper Macklemore abandoned it:

Sadly, we can probably expect to see more of these fake attacks on white people as racist white people desperately seek to demonize those they view as their opposition.
