Fake News, Hate Crimes: Top 30 Hoaxes Since Election Day
Over the last 20 years, I’ve seen big media attention given to terrible hate crimes, acts of racism and wrongful physical injury.
I was outraged. Disgusted. Sick.
Then I would see a small follow-up story that the person committed the crime to make a point or create publicity for a cause.
Now that’s really outrageous, disgusting, and sick!
Since Election Day 2016, there have been so many hate crimes which have proven to be lies and hate crimes.
Let’s look at the top 30 fake hate crimes, complied by Warner Todd Huston in Constitution.com:
