Look at how WABC picks up CAIR’s hate crime “report” as if it were serious news — did anyone ask if the faked Muslim hate crimes were subtracted out?
And what about antisemitic crimes? No big media on that. Yet “according to a report published on Monday, 541 anti-Semitic incidents have occurred so far this year — an 86 percent increase compared to the same period in 2016.”
What is bias? Pure nonsense:
“Harassment, a non-violent or non-threatening bias incident, was the most frequent type of abuse in 2016, accounting for 18 percent of the total number of incidents. Incidents during which the complainant was questioned by FBI employees or otherwise appeared to be inappropriately targeted by the agency made up 15 percent of cases, making this the second largest category. Employment issues—including denial of work, being passed over for promotion, or harassment by a supervisor or other senior staff—were the third largest category, accounting for 13 percent of the total. Hate crimes placed fourth, accounting for 12 percent of the cases CAIR documented. Denials of religious accommodation, for instance when a complainant is denied permission to wear a headscarf at work or have a Quran in their jail cell, were the fifth most frequent, accounting for 8 percent of total anti-Muslim bias incidents.”
“Denial of work, being passed over for a promotion” — anything negative that ever happens to a Muslim is now an anti-Muslim hate crime.
“Report shows 57-percent jump in hate crimes against Muslim-Americans,” by Sandra Bookman, WABC, May 9, 2017:
UPPER EAST SIDE, Manhattan (WABC) — There is a dramatic and disturbing jump in hate crimes against Muslims, that’s according to a startling new report released.
“As long as there’s even a single individual being targeted for their faith in this city in this state it’s one too many,” said Albert Fox Cahn, CAIR.
And in fact, the legal director of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) New York says many more Muslim- Americans are being targeted.
In a just released report, nationwide CAIR found a 57-percent increase in the number of bias incidents in 2016. That’s up from just over 1,400 in 2015.
Incidents increased only 5-percent from 2014 to 2015.
“Last year, half the number of hate crimes came in just the last seven and a half weeks of the year. The seven and a half weeks following Donald Trump’s election as president,” Fox Cahn said.
“Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,” the president had said.
CAIR believes President Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric coupled with his ill-fated travel ban fueled some of the backlash.
The report covers a wide variety of bias incidents including threats against mosques and street harassment and assaults….
