summary
This is a hoax, but not a fake hate crime. Michelle Malkin shows that humorlessness is not limited to the left. "This fake flyer attributed to the Young America’s Foundation chapter at GWU was manufactured by left-wing punks." The flyer, which says "Your typical Muslim has lasers in eyes, venom from mouth... and a peg-leg for smuggling children and heroin", looks more like a joke hoax than a real hoax.
