Hate Crimes Rise Under President Unity

The American undercurrent of cultural unrest is confirmed.

Hate crimes are apparently on the rise in the United States of America. As critical race theorists, radical gender theorists, and other leftist ideologues are protected and promoted by the current administration and every other bastion of power in America, the cultural clash against religion, ethnicities, and other differences is more prevalent.

The FBI just released new statistics. In 2020, the number of reported hate crimes across the country was 8,052. In 2021, that number rose to 10,840. For clarity’s sake, the FBI defines hate crimes as targeted attacks against individuals or groups who have a different religion, race/ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

According to NBC News: “[An FBI] official said the top five hate crimes in 2021 were motivated by feelings against African Americans, whites, gay men, Jews and Asian Americans. The incidents were as varied as intimidation and assault to rape and murder.”

African-Americans and whites were the top two victims of hate crimes in terms of raw numbers. Proportionately, African-Americans and Asian American were more likely to be victims of hate crimes.

It’s also worth noting that even though homosexual men ranked number three in terms of raw numbers, the instances of hate crimes against them have actually decreased over the past five years.

The greatest number of hate crimes reported, 30%, were instances of intimidation; 23% were simple assault; 19.5% were property damage/vandalism; and 12% were aggravated assault.

What the data doesn’t tell us is how many of these hate crimes were self-inflicted (i.e. hoaxes) or whether there were other extenuating circumstances. Because it is a generalization by category, it’s also not clear if the instances of intimidation were simply because a person felt threatened or because they were actually threatened. For instance, did a hate crime get counted simply because a person used incorrect pronouns and that “victim” felt intimidated as a result? This is said not to make light of actual victims of intimidation but to indicate the intrinsic vagaries of this information as it was provided and perhaps to make a greater point about overall intersectional political bias.

As columnist Gary Bauer points out, Federal Circuit Court Judge Kyle Duncan was attacked, intimidated, and shouted down at Stanford Law School for being white and conservative. Isn’t that technically a hate crime? Or how about the antifa attack in Atlanta against the new police training facility? Or the overzealous surveillance and fining of churches in California?

However, according to today’s standard of racism and hate crimes, the horribly tragic death of Tyre Nichols (black) at the hands of police (also black) is considered a hate crime. Why? Because of the woke ideology of critical race theory, which states that the institution of law enforcement is systemically racist.

There is an argument to be made that the numbers in these hate crime statistics aren’t giving us the whole picture. The rhetoric promoted by and coming from Team Biden excoriates conservatives, allows targeting against Christians, and even seeks to promote Marxist-based ideologies such as critical race theory, radical gender theory, and anti-religious secular relativism.

Hate crimes and their qualifiers are becoming more subjective and political than reality-based and truthful. This state of affairs hurts everyone.
