Hate crime is a booming business in America today: both Leftists and their Muslim allies are making as much of use of hate crimes as they possibly can in order to discredit President Trump and his supporters, as well as foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression, as racist, redneck, violent yahoos who deserve no place in the public square.
Faked hate crimesters should suffer as egregious a penalty as real hate crimes perpetrators – the majority of which are against Jews, not Muslims.
These faked anti-Muslim hate crimes which far outnumber actual anti-Muslim hate crimes do enormous damage. The defame and libel good people. They give Muslim terror-tied groups like un-indicted co-conspirator CAIR weapons to club elected officials into some legislative action.
Every “anti-Muslim” attack “incited” by President-elect Trump has been a hoax by Muslims to give proof to the lie. “Hate crimes” — a specious criminal designation as it criminalizes thought — receive harsher sentences because of the special designation.
I submit those who hoax hate crimes should receive even stiffer penalties. They smear whole communities, create hate based on lies and are responsible for the new Leftist bogeyman “fake news.”
