No doubt you heard about the many “hate crimes” against immigrants, Muslims, and other democrat mascot groups perpetrated by the “deplorable” and irredeemable” supporters of Donald Trump.
One thing those reports didn’t mention was that the evidence strongly suggests that nearly all of those horrible incidents were hoaxes. Now we learn that two left-wing organizations,

Now we learn that two left-wing organizations, determined to reinforce the ridiculous “Donald Trump gives white supremacists a license to hate” narrative, deliberately omitted information that they received about attacks on white students who supported the President-elect.
From The New York Post:
At least 2,000 educators around the country reported racist slurs and other derogatory language leveled against white students in the first days after Donald Trump was elected president. But the group that surveyed the teachers didn’t publish the results in its report on Trump-related “hate crimes.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center partnered with the American Federation of Teachers, which formally endorsed Hillary Clinton, to circulate the questionnaire among its 1.6 million mostly Democratic members. The survey was sent out to K-12 teachers and administrators who subscribe to its “Teaching Tolerance” newsletter.
The SPLC’s widely cited report — “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools” — reported that 40 percent of the more than 10,000 educators who responded to the survey “have heard derogatory language directed at students of color, Muslims, immigrants and people based on gender or sexual orientation.”
The takeaway was that Trump-supporting white kids have been harassing minorities at the nation’s schools. And SPLC’s schools report, along with a broader report on alleged Trump-inspired hate crimes — “Ten Days After: Harassment and Intimidation in the Aftermath of the Election” — sparked breathless coverage in the New York Times, Washington Post and other major media.
If the SPLC was ever an objective opponent of racism and hate, it ceased to be so long ago. As the Post article notes:
Founded in 1971, SPLC claims to be a nonpartisan civil rights law firm. But it receives funding from leftist groups, including ones controlled by billionaire George Soros. And a review of Federal Election Commission records reveals that its board members have contributed more than $13,400 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns.
Tell me again, my leftist friends, about “white privilege?” When you do, remind me again about how horrifying it is that we are so often subjected to “fake news.”
