This Week in Hate
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD JAN. 5, 2017
This Week in Hate highlights hate crimes and harassment around the country since the election of Donald Trump. The Southern Poverty Law Center and other groups are keeping detailed counts of harassment and abuse, amid concerns about a rise in hate crimes after the election. Here are some recent incidents, which we are publishing on a weekly basis to draw attention to the issue. …
On Dec. 20, This Week in Hate reported on swastikas found at Nassau Community College in Nassau County, N.Y. A 20-year-old man has been charged with aggravated harassment in connection with the swastikas and many other anti-Semitic drawings. Police said they caught the man drawing swastikas at the college.
Now you know and I know that the NYT is referring to the cretinous-looking Punjabi Jasskirat Saini who wrote “KKK” and drew cactus-looking attempts at swastikas. And the NYT has even graciously allowed you a path to figuring that out for yourself if you diligently follow the third link in the paragraph above to WABC’s news report.
You might even work out for yourself that the NYT Editorial Board is inflating their This Week in Hate list with an exposed Hate Hoax without mentioning to its readers that it’s an exposed Hate Hoax or even that there are such conceptual entities as Hate Hoaxes.
But how many NYT subscribers will do that, especially paper subscribers?
That’s one of the joys of holding the Megaphone: You can redefine your behavior as Not Fake News in that you gave extremely curious and industrious readers a path to the truth without troubling the majority who like their News Fake.
