A new website has been created to keep track of the numerous fake hate crimes that are being committed by crazy people on all sides of the political spectrum.

I generally don’t post stories about “hate” crimes, because almost invariably they are either fake or staged in the reporting for the express purpose of creating disinformation or discrediting a political movement, on either the right or the left. Rarely are they real hate crimes. Moreover, I detest the very term “hate crime”. A crime of violence is a crime of violence. To add a further condemnation to the motives or emotions involved can too easily shift into squelching freedom of speech and religion. In fact, this is exactly what has happened.

However, this entire list is instructive. First of all, the distribution of fake hate crimes is not even. A vast majority are being committed by leftists or Muslims aimed at discrediting the right or western civilization. Thus, the claim that the election of Donald Trump has sparked more rightwing racism against minorities or the left is shown to be bogus, right from the start.

Second, this uneven distribution gives us all a sense of the kind of people who are being attracted to the left and to Islam. While you can find this kind of craziness in any political, racial, or religious group, at this time in history the majority of this craziness is gravitating to liberal, islamic, and leftwing movements.

Think about that. There is a strong element of madness that is gaining power on the left, and in Islam. To ignore this fact is to ignore reality.

    There are real hate crimes and there are fake hate crime reports, just like other crimes . Who is behind this site? I had a quick look at the site but could see no information on who is compiling this list. How can you be sure that this is a fair and independent listing of all such reports? To draw any conclusions on distribution of crimes you have to be sure that this is a fair and unbiased listing. I am not saying it isn’t a fair listing but how do we know whether or not it is?

    I agree with Bob on this. I Hate the entire notion of a “Hate Crime” (Does that make me a hater? LOL )

    I saw this first hand in Police work, if we had any high-profile crime under investigation we would often get a call from some eager-beaver Federal Attorney or “Civil Rights” advocate wanting to know if the suspect had made any statements before, during, or after the commission of the crime, that could be construed as a “Hate Speech”.

    I always asked if it mattered what they were thinking or saying while they were hurting someone. And the answer was always “Yes”.

    To me the whole Hate Crime issue has always been a way to 1. Pander to Special Interest Groups 2. Attempt to Explain or Rationalize Evil behaviour by people who don’t believe Evil exists, and 3. Another way to control other people….

    It is a very dangerous path to follow when a persons “thoughts” become more important than their actions.

    Isn’t faking a hate crime in order to frame some group also a crime of hatred?

    To continue Edward’s angle:
    Classifying certain thoughts as Hate is 1, 2 and 3 as Steve pointed out with the end being thought crimes and new thought laws.
