The Swedish Defence Research Institute (FOI), along with other partners, have created a “hate speech robot” online and are asking members of the public to give it examples to form an algorithm to fight against “hate” on social media platforms.
British people are more persuaded of the benefits of immigration than any other major European nation, according to a global survey, which has also found that almost half of Britons think immigrants are either positive or neutral for the country.
Hate crime in London soars since Christchurch attacks
Racist and religious hate crimes in London hit their highest levels in a year following the Christchurch mosque shootings, police data has revealed.
Who to believe, The Guardian or the BBC? They’re probably both lying.
A recently released OPV report entitled “Extremism and Hate-Motivated Violence in Alberta” indicates a 78 per cent increase in hate crimes reported to police from 2014 to 2017.
The Jewish community, followed by the Muslim, Black and LGBTQ communities continue to be the most targeted groups in Toronto victimized by hate crime in 2018, according to police.
The good news is that last year these occurrences decreased 26% from 2017.
The highest percentage of the 137 reported hate crimes were motivated by religion (50%) followed by race (12%) and then sexual orientation (8%.)
137 incidents! I haven’t seen a breakdown yet but I am betting a majority of incidents in that “Tsunami of Hate” are graffiti or otherwise property related. So much for the Liberal Party’s White Supremacy agenda.
The son of a Louisiana sheriff’s deputy has been arrested in connection with a string of arson attacks at three historically-black churches over a 10-day period.
Holden Matthews, 21, was taken into custody by authorities in St Landry Parish on Wednesday evening following a joint investigation by the state Fire Marshal’s Office and the FBI.
Cops have yet to release any information about the suspect or his possible motive.
It’s been repeated so often it’s taken as fact: Hate crimes have soared over the past two years, and the blame rests with President Donald Trump and supporters inspired by his hateful rhetoric.
It’s a compelling story, supported by statistics that show an increase of 17% in the number of hate crimes reported to the FBI during the Trump presidency.
But it isn’t true. The surge has little to do with Trump and his red hat brigade. This according to Will Reilly, a Kentucky State University associate professor, who extensively researched hate-fueled violence in America for his book Hate Crime Hoax.
“Almost all of that surge is due to the simple fact that in 2017 the number of police departments reporting hate crimes to the FBI increased by 1,000,” says Reilly. “The surge narrative is pretty dishonest.”
When confronted with an immediate question in the wake of the news about Jussie Smollett having fabricated the hate crime he allegedly suffered, Cory Booker was calmly reserved with his comments, saying he would “withhold [judgment] until all the information actually comes out.”
It was certainly a curious response, because he initially had no such reservations or skepticism regarding Smollett’s farcical story about two MAGA-hatted white guys carrying bleach and a noose at 2 A.M. in sub-zero temperatures, waiting to violently remind any passing black guy that the streets of Chicago are somehow “MAGA country.” But what’s even more curious is that Booker continued defending the predetermined narrative of white racism by saying that “we actually know, in this country, since 9/11, that the majority of terrorist attacks on our soil have been right-wing terrorist attacks, and the majority of them have been white supremacist attacks.”
We told you this was coming. We warned you it would happen. We were not crying wolf. We were telling you the truth. And now it is here, as a headline announces: “Canadian tribunal fines Bill Whatcott $55,000 for expressing Christian views on ‘transgenderism.'” In other words, Whatcott called a biological male (who identifies as a female) a “biological male.” That was his crime.
At least 10 incidents of vandalism and desecration of Catholic churches have been reported across France since the beginning of February, according to media reports.
The actions included the desecration of altars, the defacing of Christ on the cross, arson attacks and an extreme case of human excrement being spread across the walls.
…Chinn has analyzed every attack against a house of worship since 1999. Of the 1,705 incidents he has studied, only 76 involved a clearly expressed anti-religious animus against the house of worship involved. Only 5.87 percent of such attacks are clearly motivated by a desire to kill adherents of a certain faith because of their faith. Robbery (25.97 percent), domestic violence spillover (16 percent), personal conflict (13.6 percent), mental illness (11 percent), and gang activity (8.89 percent) were much more likely motives.
“However, when you just break out Islamic centers, 64.5 percent of the attacks against those at Islamic centers is based on bias,” Chinn told PJ Media. “That surprised me.”
Mosque attacks are too frequent, but they are far less frequent than attacks in Christian churches. Of the 1,705 incidents Chinn studied, 38 took place in mosques or Islamic centers (2.23 percent), while at least 1,071 took place in Christian churches (62.8 percent). Christian churches are far more prevalent than mosques in the U.S., but this gap is still significant.
UPDATE: ‘Transgender Woman’ Arrested by NYPD for Hate Crimes Following Mace Attack Spree
A woman who allegedly pepper-sprayed seven people near Manhattan subway stations Friday was picked up by police Sunday morning, authorities said.
The woman, whose name was not released, was being processed for a separate crime in the Bronx Sunday morning and will be charged with the Manhattan incidents after, police said.
Police are looking into the possibility of a hate crime because all of the victims were white and the suspect is black.

She apparently hurled racial slurs at her victims.
Police investigated the claims made by Lamar Mayor Darnell Byrd McPherson, who reported that someone sprayed her 2017 Symphony Silver Hyundai Elantra Sport with a residue outside their home on February 7.
The Mayor of the South Carolina town also claimed her husband’s soft-top 1998 Buick Roadmaster had been sprayed with a substance which ‘got in all of the grooves’ of the gray sedan.
Hate crimes are a rising problem — but not the hate crimes against minorities and gay people the media keeps insisting are true (but aren’t). The real hate crimes that keep happening on a regular basis are against MAGA supporters, and no matter how many times some elderly person is assaulted for simply wearing a hat, no one will call the perpetrators what they are: hate-filled MAGAphobes.
Jussie Smollett’s arrest deflated mainstream media for barely a millisecond.
Immediately upon charges being filed against Smollett for allegedly making a false police report, the progressive media narrative shifted to an alleged spike in hate crimes. This CNN headline is typical: “Hate Crimes Rising Regardless of Jussie Smollett.”
Almost every media outlet attributed the alleged increase in hate crimes to President Trump’s “divisive rhetoric.” The alleged increase, it was noted, had occurred “in Trump’s America,” “Amid Trump’s First Year,” and “Since Trump Took Office.” Even the 2018 U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (of which I am a member) hate-crimes hearing was inspired by an alleged avalanche of hate crimes since Trump’s inauguration.
Cancel the BOLO alert for red-capped racists braving the polar vortex on streets of Chicago in search of blacks and gays and black gays to victimize. It turns out that the same perpetrators who smeared feces on Tawana Brawley, drew that backwards swastika on Morton Downey, Jr., and gang raped Crystal Mangum also put that noose around the neck of Jussie Smollett.
