The Post-Election ‘Hate Crimewave’ Is a Mirage

A recent Gallup poll showed that 42% of Americans are afraid following the election of Donald Trump. That may explain why there have been more than 200 incidents across America of “hateful harassment and intimidation” since election day, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

There is no doubt that some people are behaving in a beastly manner since the election, but what’s striking is that most of the reports received by the SPLC are in the third person. And none of the reports have been confirmed.
