    Fifteen years? For vandalism? He smashed lights, cameras, and windows at a mosque, and left some bacon by the front door. The vandalism is inexcusable and the bacon obnoxious, but fifteen years? The sentence, says AP, had a hate crime enhancement. In other words, he is being made an example of. Because he did this at a mosque, he is getting this draconian sentence. If he had broken windows and smashed lights and cameras at a church, his sentence wouldnt have been nearly as severe. But all too many American authorities today hold to the false notion that Muslims are...

    Hate crimes rose for the second straight year in 2016, with increases in attacks motivated by bias against blacks, Jews, Muslims and LGBT people, according to FBI statistics released Monday.

More than half the 4,229 racially motivated crimes were against black people, while 20 percent were against whites, the report shows. And Jews were targeted in more than half the 1,538 crimes that were motivated...

    The number of crimes against gays and lesbians in Germany has increased by almost a third in the past year. Is a lack of action by politicians, police and schools to blame? German parliament, the Bundestag, may have passed a bill to allow gay marriage in June, but that doesnt mean that homosexuals are automatically accepted in all parts of German society. Information revealed Wednesday by the German Interior Ministry shows that the number of crimes committed against homosexuals and bisexuals has in fact risen significantly in 2017. In the first half of this year, from January 1 to July...

    In the early morning hours of June 12, 2016, Tiara Parker of Philadelphia was out on the town but this wasnt just any night out. She was inside the Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, a place that would become the scene of a mass shooting terrorist attack by 29-year-old Omar Mateen. On that night, 49 people were murdered and another 58 were wounded in what has been called the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001. Parker was with U.S. Sen.

    One year ago this week, a radical Islamist terrorist, in solidarity with the ISIS, walked into a bar in Orlando, Florida, and murdered 49 people. During the course of the attack the monster was unambiguous about his motives, telling the police outside exactly why he murdered those people, and still the Obama administration labored over what the motive was. That fight against reality continues to this day. After the attack, under public pressure, the FBI released a partial transcript of the communications between the monster and police, but they removed all references to Islam and ISIS.On the orders of then Attorney...
