What may seem like a dramatic rise in the number of hate harassment and hate incidents happening across the country in the wake of Tuesday's general election is not in anyone's imagination, experts say.

There indeed has been a spike in the number of reports of such incidents, say representatives for two organizations that track such occurrences. A representative for one group, in fact, said the rise appears to be even worse that what was took place immediately after the terror attacks in 2001.

"Since the election, we've seen a big uptick in incidents of vandalism, threats, intimidation spurred by the rhetoric surrounding Mr. Trump's election," Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., told USA TODAY. "The white supremacists out there are celebrating his victory and many are feeling their oats," Cohen said.

2016 ELECTION AFTERMATH

Assassination threats against Trump flood Twitter

By Joshua Rhett Miller
November 11, 2016 | 11:07am | Updated

The shock and anger over Donald Trump’s ascension to the White House has triggered a flood of calls on Twitter and other social media outlets for the president-elect to be assassinated — and authorities will investigate all threats deemed to be credible, The Post has learned.

Trump met Thursday with President Obama in the Oval Office, with the Republican businessman calling the hour-plus session a “great honor.” Obama said they had an “excellent” and “wide-ranging” conversation, while urging all people to “now come together.”

But that message of inclusion was apparently lost in social media circles, particularly Twitter, where a simple search can reveal dozens and dozens of calls to gun down the next leader of the free world. Some posts called for both Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence to be assassinated, and there’s even an #AssassinateTrump hashtag.

“Trump chose the literal worst case scenario as VP so nobody would try to impeach or assassinate him,” one user posted on Twitter.

Another user wrote that the “only” remaining question after Tuesday’s historic and polarizing election is who will “assassinate” Trump, who will be inaugurated on Jan. 20. Some users even cited that date as a deadline for the assassination.

Other postings called for users who used the inflammatory hashtag to be contacted by authorities.


Continued at above link

While assasination threats may not qualify as a "hate crime", they aren't exactly something to ignore.

There Is No Violent Hate-Crimewave in 'Trump's America'

Please stop spreading unsubstantiated stories of Trump-induced terror.

Elizabeth Nolan Brown|Nov. 11, 2016 12:40 pm


Van Tine Dennis/ABACA/Newscom
See an update to this post below.

Let's get this out of the way: there's no doubt that Donald Trump's policies may pose a direct threat to certain classes of American people. But in the wake of his Tuesday night election as president of the United States, there has been a wave of people worrying for the physical safety of Mexicans, Muslims, and anyone else who isn't white, male, and gender-conforming. The fear seems to legitimately be that there are would-be perpetrators of sexual assault and race-based violence that have been well-behaved so far but will now, emboldened by a President-elect Trump, suddenly go wild with the raping and the hate crimes.

Implausible? I think so. But the narrative has been bolstered by a few high-profile incidents of alleged aggression in Trump's America.

The first one to really go viral involved a Muslim female student at the University of Louisiana who claimed to have had her hijab ripped off and her wallet stolen the day after Trump's election by two white men wearing Trump hats. But on Thursday, local police announced that the young woman had admitted she fabricated the story. "This incident is no longer under investigation," the Lafayette Police Department said in a press release.

In another incident, this one in San Diego, a young Muslim woman's purse and car were stolen by one white male and one Hispanic male. While the men allegedly made negative comments about Muslims, it seems car stealing was more their motivation than harassment or intimidation—which is obviously shitty, but not necessarily a Trump-inspired act of bigotry.

And an alleged incident of a gay man named Chris Ball getting beaten up by Trump supporters in Santa Monica on election night seems to have not happened the way it was initially recounted, if the incident even happened at all. The Santa Monica Police Department posted a message to Facebook Thursday saying that neither the department nor city officials had "received any information indicating this crime occurred in the City of Santa Monica" and "a check of local hospitals revealed there was no victim of any such incident admitted or treated."

Other instances of "Trump inspired" violence and vandalism have also turned out to be hoaxes or misinterpretations. An alleged Ku Klux Klan rally in honor of Trump's victory turned out to be an old photo of conservatives carrying U.S., Gadsden, and Christian flags that were billowing out in a manner mistaken in a grainy photo for Klan robes. There were no Southern Illinois University students posting blackface selfies to social media after Trump's win.

A Nazi flag that went up over a home in San Francisco Wednesday wasn't a show of support for anti-Jewish sentiment but "a comment on our new president-elect," according to the anti-Trump resident who put it up. "I am hoping people get that this is a political statement, and that I'm not a Nazi supporter."

Other anti-Semitic imagery—such as "Sieg Heil 2016" spray-painted on an abandoned store front in Philadelphia—may have been legit expressions of bigotry or may have been similar attempts at commentary on Trump's election; it's unclear because no one is taking credit for them. The bulk of racist graffiti incidents appear to have happened around middle- and high-schools, which doesn't make their messages any less hurtful, I'm sure, but does suggest a phenomenon driven by mean and immature kids rather than rogue bands of serious neo-Nazis.

And while all sorts of horrible incidents are being reported on Twitter and Facebook... well, anyone can say anything on Twitter and Facebook. The bulk of these stories are "friend of a friend" told me types. But if men were really going around pulling knives on Muslim women on public buses in Trump's name, there would at least be local or campus news reports of it. Same, too, for the alleged wave of transgender teen suicides which keep getting mentioned in media but for which no one can offer any evidence.

I point all of this out not to mock or attempt to diminish the fear or dismay any individuals feel right now but to put things in perspective. The "hate acts reported across the country" in the wake of Trump's victory seem mostly relegated to graffiti at a few schools and one carjacking which may or may not have had anything to do with racial or religious prejudice. Less dramatic acts of racism—name calling, derogatory comments made in passing, etc.—do seem to be bubbling up more frequently this week, if the sheer number of such anecdotes shared online means anything. But while that's a shame in and of itself, it's also a world apart from the wave of "hate crimes" and violent attacks that many are conjuring up right now.
Pushers of this "rampant racist crimewave" in Trump's America story will dismiss posts like this one, and anyone who challenges their narrative, as naive, enabling of racists, or unconscionably non-empathetic to non-straight, white, Christian Americans. But I'm not the one trying to stoke false terror in vulnerable people or over-hype America's levels of hate for pageviews and Twitter faves.

Update, November 12: Two more tales of race-based and Trump-inspired harassment have begun to unravel...

In one of the widely-shared stories, a black woman claimed that four white men had threatened her while she was pumping gas at a Smyrna, Delaware, gas station Wednesday. After talking about things would change now that Trump was president, one of the men allegedly approached her and asked, "How scared are you, black bitch?" before saying "I should kill you right now. You're a waste of air." Another of the men allegedly flashed a gun and said, "You're lucky there's witnesses or else I'd shoot you right here."

The woman, Ashley Boyer, posted about this awful incident on Facebook in an update that was since deleted; on Thursday, she followed up by noting that "charges were filed, fugitives were caught." But when PhillyVoice contacted Smyrna police Thursday, the department said no report about such an incident had been filed and no one had contacted them about anything similar. So PhillyVoice reached out to Delaware State Police... who reported that no neighboring police agencies had received any such reports either, and there was no record of any local 911 calls about such an incident. "There is no record of this occurring in Smyrna, if at all," said Corporal Brian Donner of the Delaware State Police.

The second alleged incident, out of Minnesota, involved an Asian college student named Kathy Mirah Tu who said she was accosted by a white man while crossing a bridge on the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities campus. "I was stop in my tracked by a white male, who yelled at me to 'Go back to Asia,'" Tu posted to Facebook, in an update that had received more than 17,000 shares as of Thursday evening. "I pretended to not hear any thing and continue on walking since I didn't want to create conflict. Shortly after that moment, I was stopped by that same man who told me 'Don't you know it's disrespectful to walk away from someone when they are talking to you?" After that, the man grabbed Tu's wrist and threatened to hit her so she punched him, according to her post. "His friends who were watching the entire situation go down saw that I was going to the win fight and came over to his rescue and accused me of assaulting him and called the police."

According to Tu, the police arrived and handcuffed her but eventually let her off with a warning. Yet neither the campus police nor the Minneapolis Police Department have any record of the incident Tu describes. "We heard complaint from student related 2 Wash bridge yestdy, UMPD didnt respond to bridge or make an arrest," the University of Minnesota Police Department tweeted Thursday, also asking Tu or anyone who did know about the alleged incident to come forward. Here was the response from the city police:

on Thursday
Many people have contacted us about a social media posting about an incident with a female on the Washington Avenue Bridge yesterday. At this time we have not been able to find a record of a police call relating to this incident. If anyone has information please contact us, we would like to talk to the person who posted this on social media.


Sometimes these "hate crimes" are made up.

There was no post 9/11 spate of hate crimes. A total of three, count them, three Muslims have been murdered by a white person in North America in the last 200 years. That was a result of a dispute over parking spaces.

Every year. thousands of racists are assaulted, raped and murdered by black hoodlums. It is so common that nearly every white devil in the United States knows someone or has himself been the victim of a black racist hate crime. Putting an NRA sticker on a pick up truck is not a hate crime.

The Southern Poverty Law Center IS a hate group

http://deadlinelive.info/2012/08/24/spl ... -and-lies/



Quote:
For many years now, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) have engaged in the repulsive tactic of attacking conservative groups and Christians. They have falsely equated innocent people with the KKK and Neo-Nazis, and all this for speaking out against illegal immigration, traditional marriage, and a host of other mainstream political issues which increases the chances of persecution and violence against those they target!
New focus is now being applied to these kinds of reprehensible actions of the SPLC and ADL now that Floyd Lee Corkins has stormed the offices of one of their targets intent upon mass murder of Christians that support traditional marriage. Corkins marched into the DC office lobby of the Family Research Council (FRC) bringing a bag full of Chic-fil-A sandwiches, a box of ammo, a Sig Sauer nine-millimeter handgun, and the address of the Traditional Values Coalition, which Corkins planned to hit after conducting the mass murder of Christians at the FRC! Floyd Lee Corkins is a leftist, gay rights activist, who is likely motivated by the violence-inspiring rhetoric and defamation coming from groups like the ADL and SPLC. Thanks to the heroism of security guard Leo Johnson, who was shot in the arm during the attack, the mass murder and domestic terrorism that had been planned by Corkins was narrowly averted.
This shooting in DC hits close to home for ALIPAC even though we are proudly not based in Washington, DC. The second target of Floyd Lee Corkins, according to the FBI, was the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC), which is headed up by Andrea Lafferty. Mrs. Lafferty is the wife of Jim Lafferty who encouraged us to found our organization ALIPAC in 2004 and served as our volunteer DC lobbyist in 2004 and 2005.
ALIPAC has also been defamed in the same fashion by the SPLC and ADL, and we have suffered the resulting threats and menacing that is characteristic when being lied about, being falsely accused of racism, and being erroneously associated with the KKK and Nazis simply because you oppose illegal immigration.
Violence Leads To Calls for Reform
In the days since this shooting, the President of the Family Research Council Tony Perkins singled out the Southern Poverty Law Center during a national press conference because his organization was put on a list of ‘hate groups’. The SPLC supports gay marriage while the FRC opposes it so the Southern Poverty Law Center falsly claims the FRC is related to the KKK. Tony Perkins said that action gave the gunman “a license to shoot an unarmed man,” and he urged that the law center be “held accountable for their reckless use of terminology.”
Accompanying Tony Perkins’s rightfully placed concerns about the SPLC stirring up hate and rage against peaceful conservative groups by equating groups that lobby Congress with the KKK, the SPLC took another credibility hit this past spring when they admitted to the National Review that despite their claims of being a “hate” watchdog group, they do not even monitor radical left wing groups at all.

Sometimes these "hate crimes" are made up.



I recall Knucks posting a list containing all those incidents as proof that the minorities should be terrified because Trumpolini got elected. Didn't take much level-headed reasoning to see the anti-Trump crowd perpetrated many of them, and how others were obviously fabricated defamations by same. Hard to believe people were believing such obvious rabble rousing & lies, especially Knucks, but there it was.



I thought the article handled theose fabricated hate crime reports far too softly. Sounded overly conciliatory to the people who believed that bullshit, despite the topic being about how easily misled they were.

The only confirmed hate crimes I've seen being committed, thus far, have been committed by angry Dem voters. Often trying to frame nameless others of crimes. Which is pretty despicable.

I don't know what happened to Knucklehead. Before Obama he was a good conservative. People started attacking Obama because he is a communist pusball. Every attack Knucklehead carried Obama's water because he thought they were all race based attacks.

Americans tend to judge people by their actions, not their skin color.

Young Knucklehead just can't grasp that.

Sounds familiar. A lot of it will be lefties assiduously reporting hate crimes left and right.

"Someone was wearing a Trump hoodie and I was triggered!" etc
