Would the real Andrew Lerner please stand up?

Would the real Andrew Lerner please stand up?

Andrew S. Lerner does not exist.

Andrew is a fake person. “He” set up his facebook account a few days ago and tried to add me and some of my friends. He has a whopping 15 friends, and he claims to be a York Forward supporter who is coming to York in September.

Now “he” is trying to make unprovoked, racially insensitive comments on the York Forward and Drop YFS facebook groups that will serve to demonize a caricature of the “anti-YFS” student.

This is a tactic that was used widely by the YFS in the last impeachment campaign and election. They disseminate inflammatory information, such as statements supposedly said by members of Drop YFS, or members of York Forward.

In this way, the YFS galvanizes their potential supporters, because the YFS leads them to believe that rather than fighting against a group of students who want to impeach their student government, they are fighting against a group of Conservanazi racists, personally employed by Stephen Harper to victimize minorities on campus.

They used this same tactic in February, when they published a “hit list” with the names of “Drop YFS organizers” (some of the people on the list had little to nothing to do with organizing Drop YFS).

On the list, they published fabricated statements that their targets had supposedly said, almost all of them racist and outrageous.

Also, they included blatant lies (ie: Ted Bethune is a member of the Conservative Party) and irrelevant factoids (ie: Ted Bethune grew up in Stephen Harper’s riding).

And now our friends over at the YFS MiniTrue have invented their own Emmanuel Goldstein to remind us why we need the party!

So let the 2 minutes of hate begin!

While the YFS accuses others on campus of ratcheting up racial tensions, let’s take a look at what Andrew S. Lerner has to say on the subject:

– From the York Forward discussion board

He also joined such inflammatory facebook groups as “Africa fucking sucks”

And…. Cue the desired reaction… now!

Racists! They’re a Zionist Conspiracy! A Conservative ploy to take over student governments! Union Bashing scum, the lot of them!

I want this school to realize that we stand on the edge of oblivion.

I want every man, woman and child to understand how close we are to chaos.

I want everyone to remember WHY THEY NEED US!
