Homosexual Haakon Gisvold accused members of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity of at the University of North Dakota of throwing him out of a party because he’s gay. Now, if he’d ended his story there, he might have been able to get away with the accusation. It would have devolved into a fight of “he said, he said” and it would be harder to prove what had happened and maybe people would have bought his sob story. But nope – Gisvold had to elaborate his tale.
Gisvold also claimed that Lambda Chi members also beat him, choked him, stripped him and robbed him — all while shouting anti-gay insults. He said he hid in some bush wearing only his underwear until some kind soul came along with some clothes.[…]
After an investigation that included identifying 150 possible witnesses, investigators concluded that exactly zero evidence exists to support any of Gisvold’s hate-crime allegations.
The fact was that Gisvold had no right to be there as he is not a student at the university. He has no connection with it.
Oh and this is the best part (and by “best,” I mean the most stupid) – Gisvold cried his story to the Huffington Post and whined this about the fraternity guys he was accusing –
“I just want those guys to learn from this […] They could go to jail, sure, but they could go to jail and then come out with the same mindset that they don’t like homosexuals.”
What does he want these frat guys to learn? That gay people are mean and vindictive and will make up any kind of outrageous crap to get other people in trouble? I think we’ve all gotten that message loud and clear. What’s the betting that someone made a remark about Gisvold’s shoes (or something equally stupid) and, being a card-carrying member of the Perpetually Outraged Fan Club, Gisvold decided to use his homosexuality to make an example of this guy? He couldn’t just leave the party and find something else to do – oh no. He’s gotta call the police and make up some elaborate story about how MEEEEEEAN the frat boys were to him and he got so caught up in his storytelling that he forgot that he actually had to have EVIDENCE to prove this happened. Otherwise, he’ll end up looking stupid and wasting police time and energy (and, quite possibly, landing in jail himself for his hoax story).
Police in Grand Forks, N.D. have announced that a gay man who claimed to have been the victim of a hate crime at a University of North Dakota fraternity party fabricated his entire story.
The man accused of inventing the latest bogus hate crime is Haakon Gisvold, reports local ABC affiliate WDAZ-TV.
In August, Gisvold, who is not a University of North Dakota student, alleged that members of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity threw him out of a party because he is gay. Gisvold also claimed that Lambda Chi members also beat him, choked him, stripped him and robbed him — all while shouting anti-gay insults. He said he hid in some bush wearing only his underwear until some kind soul came along with some clothes.
“I just want those guys to learn from this,” Gisvold, 18, said at the time, according to a gullible and sympathetic Huffington Post story. “They could go to jail, sure, but they could go to jail and then come out with the same mindset that they don’t like homosexuals.”
