When it comes to hate crime, Crooked Hillary and the Democrat’s constituency wins hands down.
Liberals have a fetish for hate crime. Ever since Congress passed the Hate Crime Statistics Act in April of 1990, which required the Attorney General to collect data “about crimes that manifest evidence of prejudice based on race, religion, sexual orientation, or ethnicity,” Democrats love to celebrate how victimized we all are.
The irony, of course, is that liberals are the biggest perpetrators of hate. Sure, the Left does its best to project its poison onto Southern and Midwestern red state conservatives, but a quick look at the FBI’s Hate Crime Statistics shows just who the true haters are – where they live and how they vote.
Let’s start in the South. Guess how many hate crimes were documented by the FBI in 2017 in the state of Alabama, where 3.3 million white people live among 1.2 million blacks, a state Donald Trump won by nearly 30 points? Nine. That’s right. Nine hate crimes in the heart of Trump Country, where Klan cross burnings are said to light-up the starry sky like sparklers and black churches are rumored to burn like wildfire.
Next state: Arkansas. How many hate crimes were committed in the state Trump won by 27 points, a state historically known for lynching and segregation? Seven. Yes, you heard that correctly: seven total hates crimes in Arkansas in 2017, the first full year of Trump’s presidency.
How about Mississippi, the state where Andrew McClinton, a 45-year-old African American, burned down his own church and spray painted “Vote Trump” on the charred remains days before the 2016 election? Guess how many hate crimes were committed here (real as opposed to hoaxes)? One. Yes, my friend, one. In a diehard red state Trump won by nearly 20 points, where there are 1.7 million whites and 1.1 million blacks, there was only a single hate crime reported in 2017.
Guess how many hate crimes were committed in Louisiana in 2017, an historically red state Trump won by 20 points with a population of 2.9 million whites and 1.4 million blacks? A very poultry 26.
In Georgia, a state Trump won by 6 points and where Stacey Abrams insists there’s widespread voter suppression against minorities, there were 28 hate crimes in 2017. Not bad when you consider there are 6 million whites living among 3 million blacks. Total hate crimes in the 13 Southern states carried by Trump was 1,244; interestingly Texas, with a population of 28.7 million people, recorded only 192 hate crimes, while Kentucky, population 4.4 million, was by far the worst Southern state with 379 incidents.
The same pattern played out in the red states in the Midwest, the other region known as “Trump Country.” There were 11 hate crimes in Iowa; 15 in North Dakota; 17 in South Dakota; 45 in Nebraska; 46 in Wisconsin; and 55 in Indiana. All told, hate crime in the 10 Midwest states won by Trump was 1,194, with Michigan and Ohio carrying the lion’s share of the incidents, which committed 456 and 380 hate crimes, respectively; it’s true that a few bad apples spoil the bunch.
And speaking of bad apples, how about the blue states? The regions of America populated by “woke” liberals who bad-mouth Trump supporters and tirelessly lecture conservatives about compassion and social justice? In just California, a state that’s home to Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, and Kamala Harris, a state that Hillary Clinton won by 30 points in 2016, there were a whopping 1,095 hate crimes committed in 2017. Incredibly, 263 of these took place in Los Angeles alone, a city that is overwhelmingly populated by progressive liberal Democrats and Hollywood celebrities.
Then there’s the diehard blue state of New York, where 552 hate crimes took place last year, 318 in New York City, where blacks and Latinos make up over half the population, and where Clinton beat Trump by a healthy 21 points.
How about the very liberal progressive (and lily-white) state of Washington, where people drive electric cars, eat organic vegetables, and “vape” their favorite strains of marijuana while enjoying a vanilla latte from Starbucks? Guess how many hate crimes were committed here in 2017? No less than 513. And speaking of Starbucks, little old Seattle was host to 234 of these hate incidents, which is 30 times as many as all the hate crimes committed in Alabama, Arkansas, and Mississippi combined (and 42 more than the entire state of Texas).
The overwhelmingly blue state of New Jersey, home of Cory “Spartacus” Booker, had a ton of hate crimes in 2017 – 495 to be exact. Clinton beat Trump here by 14 points.
Massachusetts, the dyed-in-the-wool blue state of John Kerry, Elizabeth Warren, and the Kennedy’s, had 441 hate crimes. And you can’t blame it all on drunkards from Boston, because they only committed 141 of these acts. And yes, Clinton won this state by 27 points. The other New England states carried by Crooked Hillary combined for a total of 203 hate crimes (Connecticut 112, Vermont 35, Maine 32, New Hampshire 13, Rhode Island 11), bringing the grand total of New England hatred to 644 – which is 161 times the amount of hate found in Sarah Palin’s great state of Alaska, which only had 4 recorded incidents in 2017, and which Trump won by 15 points over Clinton in 2016.
Then there’s the District of Columbia, which had 193 hate crimes in 2017, and which Clinton carried by an insane 89 points. Virginia, which was blue in 2016, also had 193 hate crimes. Other notable blue state hatred: Minnesota 148; Oregon 146; and Colorado 108.
Amazingly, the amount of hatred based on race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation found in the 20 liberal blue states won by Hillary Clinton is nearly 1.5 times greater than that found in the 30 red states won by Trump. When it comes to hate crime, Crooked Hillary and the Democrat’s constituency wins hands down, out-hating Trump and his red state Deplorables, 4,258 to 2,969.
