“Hate Soars” a headline declared, over a story showing bias crimes in the nation rose 5 percent in 2016. Naturally, this was attributed to President Trump’s tough talk about Islamic terrorism and illegal immigrants, with one author declaring that “hate speech that comes from the top becomes hate crimes at the bottom.” It’s a good theory — except for the facts. First, more than half of the 1,538 hate crimes involving religion targeted Jews, while less than 25 percent targeted Muslims.
Second, murder rose faster than hate crimes. FBI stats show 17,250 people were reported killed in the US in 2016, an increase of 8.6 percent over 2015.
Now, if there was only some way to blame murder on Trump . . .
Thanks Obama. Using race, gender, age, income & religion Obama & the ENTIRE democrat party drove hate to all new heights. Hate yard signs are all over my neighborhood; these democrats are proud of their hate & they are in lock-step with it. Dems/libs need validation & their lawn signs are a sign not only of their hate for Trump but of solidarity. Libs/the Left/democrats have a teen age mentality. They act, speak, hate, blame, whine & want to belong. It's why they get up each morning. Driving steaks thru the hearts of mankind is their aim they will NOT stop until every heart is a hate-filled heart. It is not going to get better either because haters have no will to forgive & move on. They cling to hate like it is love.
