McCain Supporter Carves “B” in her Cheek and Blames Black Obama Supporter

Pardon the pun but, this B is crazy.  CBS NEWS is reporting on a Pittsburgh woman charged with making false report after claiming the letter “B” was carved into her face by a black mugger.  She joins a the horrible legacy of white women who have committed crimes (like drowning their children) and white men who’ve done the same (murdering their wives) and blamed it on fictional black men.

I’ve read some horrible emails with all kinds of things people have made up to discredit the Obama campaign.  I’ve read crazy, racist, and outrageous bs on tons of blogs.  Have I been surprised at my fellow Americans in those cases…NO.  However, this…this is totally crazy.  This woman is sick.  Period.  The McCain camp can’t be blamed for her actions, but they need to understand that the kind of lies and rhetoric that they have tolerated and fostered has produced this kind of following.

From CBS NEWS – Full Story

Ashley Todd, 20-year-old college student from College Station, Texas, admitted Friday that the story was false, police said.

“She just opened up and said she wanted to tell the truth,” Bryant said, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “She was upset with the media for blowing this into a political firestorm.”

Todd, who is white, initially told police she was attacked by a 6-foot-4 black man Wednesday night.

She told investigators she was attempting to use a bank branch ATM when the man approached her from behind, put a knife with a 4- to 5-inch blade to her throat and demanded money. She said she handed the assailant $60 and walked away.

Todd claimed that she suspected the man then noticed a McCain sticker on her car, became angry and punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground and telling her “you are going to be a Barack supporter,” police said.

She said he continued to punch and kick her while threatening “to teach her a lesson for being a McCain supporter,” police said. She said he then sat on her chest, pinned her hands down with his knees and scratched a backward letter “B” into her face with a dull knife.

Todd also told police she didn’t seek medical attention, but instead went to a friend’s apartment nearby and called police about 45 minutes later.

On Friday, when she admitted the story was fabricated, Todd told police she believes she cut the backward “B” onto her own cheek, but she didn’t explain how or why, Bryant said.

“She said she doesn’t remember doing it but knows it must have been her who did it,” Bryant said, according to the Tribune-Review.

Todd reportedly said she thought of Barack Obama when she saw the “B” on her cheek and minutes later “came up what a plan” to manufacture the story, according to Bryant. “

    When I first saw this in the news I thought something was fishy about her story.

    She also joins the long list of white womenand men who blame the “angry black man” and than say they suffer from a mental illness. (Crazybytchities)

    So sad, she couldn’t even get the “B” right. It’s backwards, just like her upbringing.

    Are you voting for Obama because he is black? Of course you are. So you are just as racist a someone who votes against him because they are white. This is EXACTLY why I will not vote for him. Blacks will vote +90% for him because he is black.That is absurd. Voting for him because he is black is absurd. This is why black americans will always be the underclass. The inability for rational thought and action. Period.

  4. Um, Nb…if you already think you know the answer, why ask. Oh yes, you just want to come to this blog and say something ignorant and racist. For you to come here and call people racists when you are a racist…absurd and ironic.

    Racist comments like yours become part of the digital legacy of racism in America. Generations will not be brainwashed into thinking we are all colorblind, no. They will know how alive and well good ole fashioned bigotry was in 2008.

    Ummm nb….what in the world did who we’re voting for have to do with this article? The issue is that she fabricated this story and blamed it on a black man and used Obama in the process. You couldn’t find any other place to bring your drama to? When are we gonna stick to the subject at hand?

  7. Ma50

    But the longer i think about it why in the hell would you do something like that,the way the world is?Why are you even on the T.V.lying like that,we got enough to worry about now,then here you come pouring fuel on the fire,no need being upset about what`s getting ready too happen,it`s okay.WATCH!!

    nb, wouldn’t NOT voting for him because he’s black be following the same logic of voting for him just because he’s black? That’s the ultimate hypocrisy.

    I didn’t vote for him, nor would I because I don’t agree with the things he stands for. It has nothing to do with his race but simply my investigations into the things he does/believes.

    I think what the other person not so eloquently was trying to say is that, lots of people voted for him just b/c he was black. They did not do any research, investigation, nothing. They saw him on TV kissing the woman on the cheek from the Katrina events and that was that. And in that case, it is very ignorant.

    As for this woman, yes, she is very nuts and things like this, false accusations should be punishable in some way. Even for the mere fact that she wasted so many people’s time.
