Following the election of President-elect Donald Trump, many distraught liberals in the media have been fretting over a supposed uptick in alleged “hate crimes” committed against minorities, ostensibly by Trump supporters.
CNN has been at the forefront of this, compiling and constantly updating a list of these purported hate crimes, the vast majority of which include simple acts of vandalism and graffiti or rude and possibly offensive verbal abuse.
They cite the decidedly left-leaning — and in their own right hateful — Southern Poverty Law Center for proof of this supposed rash of hate crimes, a number of which have already been debunked or withdrawn by the complainant.
But it is noteworthy that while they have gone to great lengths to compile this extensive list and dig up details of these supposed hate crimes, the same due diligence has not been paid to white Trump supporters who have found themselves on the receiving end of both hateful and abusive words and even criminal acts of violence.
The Daily Caller noticed this too and reported that, tucked away in the middle of a lengthy article, CNN devoted a solitary paragraph to reports of “other attacks” committed against the aforementioned white people.
That paragraph read: “And it’s not just incidents of hate crimes that have happened since the election; there have been reports of other attacks, too. A man in Chicago reportedly was beaten as a bystander yelled, ‘You voted Trump!’ And two men in Connecticut were arrested over assault allegations against a Trump supporter.”
There have been many other instances of violent assaults and hatefully biased behavior against Trump supporters that have largely gone unreported by the liberal media, but they made sure that everyone knew about the swastika graffiti found in a New York City park, even tough nobody was targeted or injured and the perpetrator has not been identified, much less proven to be a Trump supporter.
While this isn’t surprising, it is somewhat upsetting, and gives further evidence of the distinctly one-sided view most progressive leftists hold when it comes to instances and allegations f racism and hate crimes. They seem to assume such things can only be perpetrated by white conservatives against minority liberals, and never,ever the other way around.
Those are simply “other attacks,” and nothing at all for anybody to be concerned about. Besides, those people voted for Trump, so they deserve whatever they get. Right?
