    If racism is so rampant in America, why is it that time and time again people must resort to staging fake hate crimes to expose it? A growing problem, fake hate crimes are quick to be downplayed by the media, but these episodes reached a pinnacle with disgraced actor Jussie Smollet, whose name has become a verb to describe such incidents. Smollet has plenty of company, as seen in Johnson City, Tenn., where a black woman was arrested for scraping the words “white pride” into the sidewalk in front of a local gym owned by a black man. Mahagany Teague,...

    'No Hate in Our State' is a new campaign being launched by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. It's a series of proposals in the 2021 budget designed to combat hate, division and anti-Semitism in New York. The campaign includes a first-in-the-nation domestic terrorism law, a $25 million investment to help protect not-for-profit religious organizations, creating an education curriculum on diversity and tolerance, and investing $2 million to support the Hate Crimes Task Force. "The rash of anti-Semitism and hate crimes that has been spreading across our State and the country is a virus. I thought that New York would be...

    As if San Francisco were not disgusting enough with its corruption, poop patrols, and unpunished street crime, there's now this sort of brutality going on: (tweet video of an Asian man been harassed and beaten by thugs) According to the Daily Mail: The video begins with one onlooker walking towards the man, wielding a pole and using it to hit him on the head. Others laugh and jeer as the victim runs away.

    A precedent has been established by the Democrat leaders in Congress; so, a president needs to establish an absolute precedent for such a thing to never happen again When the Senate acquits President Donald J. Trump of the bogus crimes fabricated by the Democrat leadership and fanned to a frenzy by the national mainstream media, one has to wonder whether such a blatant attempt to “kill the king” should be ignored. Where’s the “Justice” Democrats to demand justice that the Trump smear campaign was unjust? Where is the Southern Poverty Law Center when blatant hate has been exhibited in such...

    France’s Interior Ministry vowed on Wednesday to create a dedicated office for combatting hate crimes after more than 100 Jewish graves were found desecrated at a cemetery near the city of Strasbourg. “The republic itself has been desecrated,” said Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said after a visit to the 16th-century cemetery. “Hatred has struck; there is hatred on our national territory. We will do everything so that the people who have done this are convicted.” […] According to national statistics, police reports of anti-Semitic incidents rose 74% in 2018 compared to the previous year, prompting widespread concern in the country...

    Last month, 12-year-old Amari Allen appeared on television to share how she had been brutalized by racist white boys at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, Virginia. .... When the story first broke, left-wing politicians and activists raged. Rep. Rashida Tlaib published a personalized message on Twitter to the girl: “You see, Amari, you may not feel it now but you have a power that threatens their core. I can’t wait to watch you use it and thrive.” On Twitter, some even found a way to blame the Trump administration, noting ominously that Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen, teaches art...

    The sixth-grade girl at a private Virginia school who accused three classmates last week of forcibly cutting her hair now says the allegations were false, according to statements from the girl’s family and the principal at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield. School officials met with the girl and her family Monday morning before releasing the statement. The 12-year-old, who is African American, said three white boy students held her down in a school playground a week ago during recess, covered her mouth, called her insulting names and used scissors to cut her hair. The grandparents of the girl, who are...

    The director of the mayor’s new Office for the Prevention of Hate Crimes is already disagreeing with her new boss — who claimed in June that anti-Semitism is a right-wing movement. “He’s correct to say there are threats that come from the right wing. There are also threats that come from the left,” said Deborah Lauter at a City Hall press conference Tuesday announcing her new position. SNIP Lauter, who worked at the Anti-Defamation League for 18 years before taking the city position, said she was “not aware” of a right-wing threat of anti-Semitism in New York. At a June...

    he Trump administration has prepared draft legislation to expedite capital cases against mass shooters, it announced Monday.

On Sunday, President Donald Trump called the shooter "another very sick person," and said that shootings were...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Cory Booker on Thursday said he would create a White House office to combat white supremacy and hate crimes if elected, becoming the latest Democratic presidential candidate to call for action after a racially motivated massacre in Texas. Booker said he would also require the FBI and the Justice Department to allocate the same level of resources and attention to white supremacist-inspired violence as they devote to international terrorism.

The historic moment comes as President Donald Trump and his supporters ramp up attacks on Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the first two Muslim women in Congress. Organised by the Muslim Caucus, the Muslim Collective for Equitable Democracy 2019 will feature appearances by representatives Omar, as well as a host of other prominent Muslim American figures, including Gold Star father Khizr Khan and Keith Ellison,...

    UN Global Compact: What Happens Next? by Judith Bergman June 28, 2019 at 5:00 am This initiative [to "present a global plan of action against hate speech and hate crimes on a fast-track basis"] should be deeply concerning and is likely to serve only to silence critics of the UN, including its agenda on migration and the GCM. The EU, for its part, according to statements by Hungary and Austria, does not appear to agree that implementing the Global Compact should be up to every EU member state. Instead, the EU is working on making it legally binding, even...

    Over the last year, it seems as if more campus hate crimes turned out to be hoaxes than legitimate acts of hate. Schools tended to be fertile ground for overzealous students looking to prove there is hate where none exists. These 17 examples show 2017 continued to be a year in which hate-crime hoaxes are an epidemic with no end in sight. (Just to note some of these)

    Actor Jussie Smollett, who faked an anti-black, anti-gay hate crime against himself in the dead of the Chicago winter, and then escaped charges on likely political connections for filing a false police report, is starting to inspire copy cats looking for the same sweet deal. Here's one from New York from the New York Post: A Manhattan straphanger who claimed to have been attacked by two men yelling gay slurs was actually the one doing the attacking, according to police. Cops say the 25-year-old, who has not been identified, set upon the two men at the Chambers St. station in Tribeca...

    Last week, a restaurant in the Canadian city of Winnipeg was allegedly defaced by racist graffiti and swastikas. News outlets described it as one of the "most brazen" attacks on the Jewish community in recent memory. A prayer vigil was planned for today. That event has been canceled amidst revelations that the Winnipeg police now believe the hate crime was a hoax staged by the Jewish owners of the BerMax Caffe. All three were arrested and charged with "public mischief," which is the Canadian equivalent of misleading police investigators.

    According to the FBI, "hate crimes" are on the rise. The agency reported a 17% increase in such crimes in 2017 compared to 2016. Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., recently said: "There has been an increase in hate crimes. There has been an increase in very negative rhetoric at groups." Notwithstanding the crime hoax perpetrated by actor Jussie Smollett, CNN recently reported, "Hate crime allegations show no signs of stopping, with plenty of examples reported in recent months." But wait. The FBI, in its news release announcing the 2017 Hate Crime Statistics report detailing the "rise" in hate...

Mostly, said cases involved black, Muslim or LGBT folks claiming an assault by the MAGA brigades. ...
