Althea Bernstein is another Jussie Smollett

‘Classic Wisconsin frat boys’ not found

U.S. Civil Rights Division agrees

Four college white boys never threw a lighter, much less did anyone matching that description walk up State Street with a bottle of charcoal lighter fluid as alleged by the would-be social justice martyr, now revealed to be a hoaxster. Althea Bernstein must have cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars on a wild goose chase — on a story that was never plausible except to those — like Mayor Satya, The Capital Times, and other progressives — who wanted to believe the worst about Madison WI.

That this scam was reported in the vicinity and on the same 06-24-2020 night that BLM tried to torch the City-County Building and pulled down historic statues is yet another insult to a civil, ordered society. The Werkes reported early and often that all of downtown Madison outdoors is on 24/7 video camera. We reported early and often that police could find no visual corroboration, no witnesses, and no lighter.

In other words, the story stank from the get-go!

Feds say it never happened

After a thorough investigation into the events of June 24, 2020, including extensive interviews, exhaustive review of traffic and surveillance video, and expert review of digital and forensic evidence, federal investigators determined that there is insufficient evidence to prove that a violation of any federal criminal statute occurred. Further, after reviewing all available evidence, authorities could not establish that the attack, as alleged by the complainant, had occurred.  — U.S. Attorney Scott Blader

Statement from acting Police Chief Vic Wahl:

The Madison Police Department is closing the investigation into this case. After an exhaustive probe, detectives were unable to corroborate or locate evidence consistent with what was reported.

Althea Bernstein’s car captured, date and time-stamped at intersection of State and Gorham Sts. where Althea said it all went down. Do you see four white frat boys? Flames? She’s not even stopping!


The Madison Police Department dedicated significant resources to this case. The investigation was led by the MPD Violent Crime Unit, with support from the Forensic Services Unit and Central District. Detectives conducted numerous interviews, reviewed extensive video, and analyzed physical/digital evidence during the course of the investigation. MPD was assisted in these efforts by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI).

Consistent with MPD’s Core Values, Code of Conduct, and Standard Operating Procedures, the victim was treated with dignity and respect at all times during the course of this investigation. MPD, FBI and DCI personnel had regular contact with the victim and family, who were cooperative with investigators. The Madison Police Department is committed to thoroughly investigating alleged hate crimes and holding offenders accountable.

Case findings were also reviewed by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Wisconsin and the United States Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. Both independently evaluated the facts and reached the same conclusion as MPD. 

Madison police unloaded a trove of documentation and a photographic record of Ms. Bernstein as she drove — unmolested — through the city. It’s all here.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Althea Bernstein won’t be prosecuted because, unlike Jussie Smollett, no Ethiopian brothers will come forward to say they were paid to scam the public. But Madison’s woke insomniac Left ought to ponder why so many social justice warriors feel they must concoct hate crimes.  And why they — and the major news media — were such willing dupes to believe this girl’s fantastic (as in fantasy) tale.

Will BLM/Antifa cry ‘racist cover-up?’

    It is truly an injustice that hate crime charges were not brought forward in this case…..against Althea Bernstein that is.

      Just because the perpetrators have not been found doesn’t mean a crime was not committed. What evidence exists to prove that Althea Bernstein burned herself?

        Your name should be Lost in The Wilderness.

        The evidence indicated exactly what the police said. They said there was no corroboration THAT THE CRIME OCCURRED AS ALTHEA BERNSTEIN SAID IT HAPPENED. She was lying. She originally claimed it happened at a State Street intersection while she was stopped at a red light, while traversing State Street. Big mistake. There are no such intersections on State street that aren’t COMPLETELY covered by video surveillance. She then backtracked and claimed she couldn’t recall the exact intersection (although she could give detailed descriptions of the perpetrators and even the brand of lighter fluid.) Sorry, no dice. They couldn’t even find video of her car driving across State Street at the time she claimed it happened. And she would HAVE HAD TO CROSS State Street to go where she was going. And I doubt she burned herself. More likely she was involved in that night’s FIREBOMBING which just happened to use the exact same accelerant (Kingsford) that Althea claimed was thrown on her. BUt she had assured her parents that she wasn’t at the riot going on that night. That’s what likely started the chain of lies. I believe it was her parents who insisted she go to the hospital and file a police report.

        But the police can’t prove a negative, so she’s off the hook.

        Oh, and then there was the lighter aspect of the story. She claimed that the “classic Wisconsin frat boys” had sprayed her first, and thrown a LIT LIGHTER into her car which ignited the fluid. A lit lighter? That would have to be a Zippo type since modern disposable lighters cannot be thrown while lit. The story suddenly changed to maybe it was a match and not a lighter. Problem is either one would still be in the car match or lighter. My guess is they found neither.

    But standing at the head of the pack is MMSD, with its unapologetic message of indoctrinating our children to grow up as racists and viewing their future entirely through that lens. All totalitarian societies understand that the key to success is in indoctrinating its youth, and Madison is helping to lead the way.

    Remember that MMSD election last year when David’s race-baiting opponent opponent blew him out of the water 70% to 30%? We reap what we sow.

    Nope, never once was fooled by Althea Smollett and her fake allegations of immolation. I’m not sure what she was trying to achieve. Maybe folk hero status, attention and adoration, more street cred on the SJW spectrum? 🤷‍♂️ However, all she seemed to accomplish was disfigurement and further stoke racial animosity and division. It’s sad to think that someone out there in this world took Burnsteins words to heart and possibly set out to hurt or kill someone because of the color of her skin. I don’t know how she sleeps at night, she is a pathetic loser and not enough bad things can happen to her.

Yes, prosecutions for filing false police reports are LONG overdue in cases like these, but you might cut her some slack too.

        It is agreed that Bernstein is young and made some bad life choices. However, she has been at the age of reason for quite some time now and she needs to pay for her lies. It is obvious that Althea Bernstein is a liar. Yes we all did dumb things at age 18 but how do you get burnt in a hate crime at the same time buildings are being torched? I firmly believe she was up to something bad and it literally blew up in her face! Not to mention the strain she put on an already overworked MPD and draining resources that could have gone to solving actual crimes. Yes things do take on a life of their own, especially when you are doing something bad and then have to cover your tracks and concoct an unbelievable story in the process. She also had all summer to walk this back and apparently her parents are also ok with their daughter lying about being the victim of an imaginary hate crime. They need to all be ashamed of themselves and Althea gets no slack from me. I don’t really care if she was brainwashed by school either. I am a product of the MMSD and went to an alternative high school where it was a politically and racially charged atmosphere decades before all this SJW nonsense. They didn’t brainwash me. You know a shameful act before you do it, even at the tender age of 18. If you don’t, then you need help. Althea Bernstein needs lots of help.

          I couldn’t agree more. I’m only at page 98 of the 157 pages of law enforcement’s investigation of this bogus hate crime, and even before finishing it, I believe there is more than enough evidence for her to be charged with filing a false police report. You can even add several more charges for her continually lying to the police during their investigation. (Current history shows that some citizens have had their lives and livelihood destroyed when they are subjected to this one.) Yes, she’s a youngster, but this is the ideal time for a community to step in and teach her that this kind of crap needs to stop here and now. We have plenty of examples that demonstrate that when that never happens, these “youngsters” move on, adopting this M O as a way of life. By not acting now, we teach this young lady a very bad life lesson.

        That’s fine, I respect your position and am in agreement with you as well. By “not enough bad things can happen to her” I’m referring to the book being thrown at her for causing this fake spectacle. Sure a little bad karma and some hard learning exps might help her along the way but I don’t wish anything tragic or drastic on Bernstein. On top of restitution/various charges Bernstein also needs mandatory mental health counseling, for she a very sick and troubled individual. I guess that would be a good thing if she can get the help she desperately needs. In all fairness, my MMSD experience had a softer indoctrination process than Bernstein assuredly had. I can only imagine what her head was being filled with. But I think everyone on this post can support the idea of Bernstein being made an example of in some capacity.

Mandatory mental “health” , conducted by the self-same nuerotic purveyers of “VICTIM-HOOD” and peddlers of distracting obsessive, overwrought “personal story” minutea can stand in the way of personal accountability in the deeper , more meaningful aspects of maturing. Many of the dopes on the streets have a “therapist” to “validate” their DELUSIONS of persecution by “society” . They are the spoiled, shrink-dependant , monied “leaders”. They channel their nuerotic guilt to people who have had a REAL neglected (parentless/dirt poor) upbringing, who then channel their disgust and disappointment with their absent , selfish parents to “evil white society”.

So they turned the squad car around and headed toward the other exit. We watched in disbelief as the throng of people rushed toward the second exit to block our path. As we tried to pull out, they surrounded the car and began beating on the windows and rocking the vehicle.

    “Just as we extricated ourselves from their grip, a truck pulled up and blocked our path, playing a game of chicken with the troopers. They turned the lights and sirens on and warned him to get out of the way. Eventually he backed up, and we sped off.

    “It was a lesson in how much our circumstance had changed in a matter of a few days. We were dealing with people who were so blinded by their anger that they were not in the least bit afraid to storm and shake a police car. We had never seen anything like it in Wisconsin before.”

    Interesting read on Mixed-Race SJWs MIXED MESSAGES ON RACE INCREASING POLARIZATION by Jason Whitlock, whom The Gotch will go out of his way to read.

    Whitlock contends that the mouthiest SJWs of Color are of mixed race.

    To wit:

    ((bolds/caps/italics mine throughout)
    “But I don’t think it’s a coincidence that many of the HIGHEST PROFILE AND IRRESPONSIBLE CELEBRITY RACIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS ARE MIXED RACE half white and half black.

    “NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace (white dad, black mom) just joined former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick (black dad, white mom, white adopted family), former Empire star Jussie Smollett (white dad, black mom), Grey’s Anatomy star Jesse Williams (black dad, white mom) and Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard (black dad, white mom) as a fiery outspoken leader on racial justice.

    “Growing up mixed race can be difficult and confusing in America. A mixed-race child oftentimes faces awkwardness, SCRUTINY AND BIGOTRY FROM BLACK AND WHITE FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS AND STRANGERS. Many feel they are caught in the middle of a culture war not of their creation.”

    The what do most of the highest profile Race-Hoaxers (JuiSAY, Tawana Brawley, Althea Bernstein, Dauntarius Williams, Eddie Curlin, et al) have in common?

    They’re mixed race! What are the odds…?

      Gotch – I have to admit that your style of writing is a little tough for me to appreciate, but your post here makes a really important point. This is something that I’ve also noticed for quite some time and you can see it at play here in Madison. One good example is Ali Muldrow, Blaska’s opponent in the recent school board election. I’ve spoken with several people who have watched her grow up and who thought highly of her as a child.
      My own brief interaction with her has also been very positive on a personal level, and my impression is that she is regarded by nearly everyone as a very warm and likeable person. And yet she, along with my own frankly less-likable opponent in the primaries, Ananda Mirilli, are the two worst race-baiters currently on the school board.
      But if you’ve heard what she has said about her childhood, you can understand this. Ali was brought up in an environment where her black father was constantly saying to her “but who are you?” when it came to her sense of self-identity. How does a sensitive young girl withstand this kind of brainwashing when it’s coming from a father she loves?

      Also, it’s probably worth parenthetically noting that Tony Robinson, by all accounts a gifted and likable young man, was similarly very conflicted in regards to his mixed race.
      This is all so sad and troubling, especially given that Madison’s parents and taxpayers are all paying to have this pernicious racism imposed every day day upon our children, and against the will of most of us. (I’m sure we’ll be waiting until the cows come home for MMSD to ever survey parents about this issue.)

      Anyway, thanks again for your post.

    As frustrated as I am by the lack of charges for this HATE CRIME, I understand the position the police are in here.

She was out on a date don’t you know, and NOT trying to firebomb the CCB. So she decided to lie about and lay a smack on those classic Wisconsin frat boys that she so despises, in the process.

    Once she said it, there was no turning back. I was sort of sympathetic to her predicament, until she spoke to a crowd of protesters and told the story again, remarking how “empowering” that made her feel. She should be going to jail, and she isn’t. But she will be paying a price and we all have Chris Rickert to that for that. His coverage exposed her ridiculous story for the blatant lie that it was. I think it was telling that Mayor Satya felt the need to “brief community leaders” on the police dropping the case, before it was announced publicly. Would have been sort of embarrassing if BLM and Freedom Inc had a protest over not prosecuting a hoax. But Althea will not avoid a cost for this. She will forever be known in this community for the fraud that she is. If she chooses to just live with her lie, and pretend that people don’t know, I predict psychological issues and a relocation in her future. Not jail, but it will have to do.

      “But she will be paying a price …” Will that price be equal to the hundreds of thousands of dollars and manhours spent investigating this hateful hoax?

        Not even close, The price she paid is her credibility, from now until she confesses the truth. I predict a relocation in her near future. Her name will be right up there with Audrey Seiler in Madison folklore, forever.

          “The price she paid is her credibility,” Are you joking ? In her crowd (including her parents, and “woke” society at large) she’ll be winked at for her attempted “CLEVERNESS”

    It is noteworthy that very few national media sources have picked up this story. Good Morning America has not posted about the story. My guess is that they are too embarrassed.
