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.
