Hate, Incorporated: SPLC Buries 2,000 Reports of White Kids Getting Harassed Over Trump Victory

Narrative: It's what's for dinner.

And breakfast.

And lunch.

And elevensies.

They know about elevensies, don't they?

At least 2,000 educators around the country reported racist slurs and other derogatory language leveled against white students in the first days after Donald Trump was elected president. But the group that surveyed the teachers didn't publish the results in its report on Trump-related "hate crimes."

The Southern Poverty Law Center partnered with the American Federation of Teachers, which formally endorsed Hillary Clinton, to circulate the questionnaire among its 1.6 million mostly Democratic members. The survey was sent out to K-12 teachers and administrators who subscribe to its "Teaching Tolerance" newsletter.

The SPLC's widely cited report -- "The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation's Schools" -- reported that 40 percent of the more than 10,000 educators who responded to the survey "have heard derogatory language directed at students of color, Muslims, immigrants and people based on gender or sexual orientation."

But what they didn't say is that 20% of those respondents reported anti-white harassment.

The takeaway was that Trump-supporting white kids have been harassing minorities at the nation's schools. And SPLC's schools report, along with a broader report on alleged Trump-inspired hate crimes--" Ten Days After: Harassment and Intimidation in the Aftermath of the Election" -- sparked breathless coverage in the New York Times, Washington Post and other major media.

The media is in one of its typical spasms about "#FakeNews." But while they rail about FakeNews, they continue to propagate it like mad -- like they have a monopoly on propaganda, and are understandably upset to see others horning in on their business.

They will cover this up, of course, and refuse to correct their previous spreading of #FakeNews, and of course will continue quoting Democrat pressure groups SPLC and the AFT as some kind of disinterested "experts" just offering you the straight dope on American policy questions.

Amazingly, a Washington Post writer -- and I'm going to guess a Social Justice Warrior, as the Washington Post pretty much is all 22 year old Social Justice Warriors now -- writes a blistering assault on "Fake News," even as she, get this, re-relays Fake News. She actually claims that Jared Loughner was inspired by Sarah Palin -- six years after this Fake News had been thoroughly discredited.

And on that, Ashe Schow writes that the biggest purveyor of Fake News is the media itself, now shrieking about Fake News.
