Now that Donald Trump has been elected to the White House, you can be sure that the media will suddenly realize that homelessness is rampant, unemployment is a major problem, the economy is bad, and America is evil again. And to prove the contention, the media is already talking about how there has been a “massive rise” in “hate crimes” against Muslims. And it’s all Trump’s fault. But don’t believe these lies.
The wild-eyed, spittle-specked claim was then echoed by such sources as CNN, The New York Times, ABC News, and a host of others decrying the “surge” or the “hike” or the fears of a “massive” rise in hate crimes against Muslims.
[L]et’s look at the AP’s version of this nonsense, shall we?
[Once] AP gets past its partisan and overheated rhetoric to tell us the actual numbers reported by the FBI … it turns out that the grand total of so-called “hate crimes” against Muslims reported for 2015 was… drum roll, please… 257 incidents.
