What I want to know is why, if it's the right that's stoopid, it's the left that keeps falling for obvious hoaxes.

Actually, one reason might be that truth has never been a big seller with the left. As Ross points out, when it comes to racial incidents, reality is purely incidental. Still, that does raise one important point.

The left has spent years whining about supposedly inflammatory language - even to the point of absurdity - but now we have a case of an extremist who really is trying to stir up trouble with a fraudulent atrocity story and it turns out the bad guys are the ones who are pointing that out. Apparently, inflammatory language is OK providing you don't use it to describe stuff that actually happened.
