Why are some trying to turn life into one big hate-crime?

After voting for Brexit earlier this year did you come over all homophobic? I mean after you did all the obvious stuff like beat up a few ethnic minorities and burn a Torah. A piece in the Guardian at the weekend explains that ‘Homophobic attacks in UK rose 147 per cent in three months after Brexit vote.’ It claims that this shows how ‘toxicity fostered by the EU referendum debate spread beyond race and religion, new figures suggest’. None of which makes any sense. Who would decide, after voting Brexit, to attack the gays? I suppose it is possible that some people thought Ian McKellen spoke for all of us (as he himself appeared to think) when he said before the vote that ‘Brexit makes no sense if you’re gay’ and that all gays must therefore vote Remain. But it seems a push.

    There you go again, trying to analyze leftist motivations in terms of logic and rationality…

    This was the same hype for AIDS to get more tax dollars when less than 0.5% of the population was affected.
    The 147% increase means that the 10 reports last year are now close to 25.

    When AIDS was painted as a crisis for all heterosexuals they needed a big lie to hide who the victims really were and what caused the infection. When 8 cases a year rose to 24 , the Health dept. and the NDP screamed how the AIDS cases were up 200% while not tell people the whole story.
    Muslims do this with their fake Hate-crimes. There will be 15 unproven allegations of islamophobic attacks or verbal abuse in one year ….so the taqiyyah masters new goal is to coach muslim women to make more fake hate-crime reports to get to 24 reports as to claim that hate-crimes against muslims is up 60% .

    Meanwhile , the Quran deems all of the current 6,000,000,000 non-muslims on Earth are enemies of allah and islam to be converted or KILLED .
