    Hate crimes against London's Jewish minority have surged over the last 12 months with an increase of 93.4% according to figures from the Metropolitan police. In the 12 months from July 2014, police recorded 499 anti-Semitic crimes in London compared with 258 in the same period the preceding year. The boroughs worst affected were Hackney and Barnet where respectively 122 and 120 instances were reported.In a statement to IBTimes UK, the Met attributed the rise to several factors, including increased reporting, but said that greater focus on the capital's 250,000-strong Jewish communities in the wake of events elsewhere had led...

    False claims of racism and hate crimes related to sexuality seem to be endemic. So desirable is the status of victim that some people, especially those in academia, have been known to vandalize their own cars, attach nooses to their office doors, and otherwise fabricate hate crimes against themselves. Oberlin College, with a history of hysteria over fake hate crimes, even generated worldwide headlines for its overwrought response to a series of “hate crimes” that turned out to be false. We don’t know what percentage of hate crime reports are self-generated hoaxes by the purported victims. Often there is no...

Authorities are yet to have identified the attackers but The Independent reports commentators assume they were Muslims. According to police the young victim was sunbathing with two friends in the Parc Léo Lagrange in Reims, northern France, last Wednesday when one of her five female attackers verbally abused her for “immorally” exposing so much flesh in a public place. The sunbather shouted back at which point the...

    A French court has handed out convictions for anti-gay hate crimes on Twitter for the first time, after three people used the hashtag “let’s burn the gays”. In what a major French LGBT rights group called a “significant victory”, three people were convicted in a Paris court this week after they accompanied tweets with hashtags including “let’s burn the gays on…“ or "#brûlonslesgayssurdu).” During the same period in August 2013, “#Lesgaysdoiventdisparaîtrecar”, or “gays must die because…”, was also trending. French LGBT charity Comité Idaho, which organises the nation’s International Day Against Homophobia, brought the case to court after it filed...

The first statistic that jumps off the page when reviewing the Bureau’s Uniform Crime Report Hate Crime Statistics, 2013 is that claims that America is a hate filled nation are wishful thinking lies. The total number of “hate crimes” reported nationwide in 2013 was, at 5928, not even 6000!

He’s proposed commissioning a government study to find ways to stop the broadcast outlets from “encouraging hate crimes” through their various communications, Breitbart reported. But First Amendment supporters say it can’t be done. “This proposed legislation is worse than merely silly,” said civil liberties lawyer Harvey Silverglate, in Breitbart. “It is dangerous.

    One of the oldest rules in psychology and economics is that if you reward a behavior, you can expect to see it more often. In America, we reward victimhood. That makes us feel good about ourselves and in some cases, it helps improve the lives of the people who've been victimized, but there's a dark side to it as well. It creates perverse incentives for people, it helps legitimize a victimhood mentality, and it also encourages people to fake hate crimes. Under normal circumstances, that would seldom happen. However, in a society where we celebrate victimhood and savagely attack people...

    A sick so-called game known as "knockout" -- where teens randomly sucker-punch strangers with the goal of knocking them unconscious with a single blow -- is catching the attention of law enforcement throughout the nation. "Knockout" can be fatal. In New Jersey, Ralph Santiago, 46, a homeless man, was walking alone in Hoboken on the night of September 10 when he was suddenly struck from behind, said Hoboken Detective Anthony Caruso. The blow knocked out Santiago, who had a pre-existing brain injury. He suffered a seizure. The victim's body struck a nearby fence, with part of the wrought iron fence...

The suspects allegedly hit the victim without warning, similar to recent incidents related to the so-called “knockout game” in which mobs of young people randomly sucker-punch innocent people for fun. Around 2:45 a.m. Friday, investigators said a 24-year-old Jewish man was surrounded by four men and punched in the face on 18th Avenue in Borough Park. NYPD officers were nearby in an unmarked police car, commissioner Ray Kelly said Friday afternoon. The victim told investigators he heard one of the attackers say, “I’ll do...

Indeed, his killer may have killed him because Shepard allegedly came into possession of a large amount of methamphetamine and refused to give it up.

    The Left is uncomfortable about “keeping score” of racial attacks by Black males on (especially) defenseless Whites. The favorite targets of these cowards are fragile elderly Whites and White women although when they are assembled in sufficiently lopsided numbers these predators will attack young healthy White men.

    In the United States, if you are convicted of a hate crime, your sentence is usually extended 15 years or so. This trend of criminalizing thought - as noble as it seems in the case of hate crimes - is a dangerous precedent. Allow me to explain. The goal of the state in law and law enforcement is to seek justice for those who have been wronged. This is a simple statement that underpins conservative civic theory, limited government, and a victim- not criminal-centered approach to justice, but it certainly goes against most of legal philosophy today. And I am...

    Prosecutors have confirmed that no charges are pending against former Polish president and leader of the Solidarity movement Lech Walesa, following a complaint alleging that he promoted hatred against homosexuals. While giving his views during a TVN24 interview on recent debates in parliament about legalizing civil partnerships for homosexuals in Poland, Walesa said, “Homosexuals should sit on the last bench in the plenary hall, or even behind the wall, and not somewhere at the front.” Lech Walesa, the former president of Poland, helped bring down Communism. As a tiny minority, homosexuals should not be overrepresented. “A minority cannot impose itself...

    On Wednesday , Canada’s Supreme Court ruled that the government has the power to censor anyone who publicly says anything “likely to expose a person to hatred or contempt.” Except that hate is a natural human emotion. It can no more be banned than love can be banned. Bill Whatcott, a self-styled Christian evangelist, was the target of such a prosecution. Twelve years ago, he was charged with hate speech because of his hobby: Handing out hand-scrawled flyers criticizing gay sex, and calling homosexuals “sodomites.” Whatcott is an odd bird; when he was young, he says, he engaged in gay...
  • Violence Against Women Act Shreds Rights

    On Thursday, the House voted to approve the latest incarnation of the Violence Against Women Act. So, it’s a done deal, and it’s not good. Before the vote, national talk radio host Mark Levin, on Wednesday evening, called for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to step down from the position. Cantor is yet another of the “Republicans” who is fighting against the conservatives in Washington. Levin called for Cantor’s ouster from House leadership after Cantor threatened conservatives who had opposed the new version of the Violence Against Women Act, which now awaits the signature of Barack Obama (or whatever his...

    In Barack Obama’s Department of Justice, “hate crimes” where the perpetrator is Black are ignored and those where Whites or Hispanics stand accused are rocketed through the federal courts. Of course this is not a novel observation, but a recent case coming out of Compton, California in which an Hispanic gang committed an “interracial hate crime” underlines the ridiculous disparity in how “hate crimes” are handled by the DoJ. Recently, two members of a street gang calling itself the “NKs” which stands for N%%^#$ Killers were indicted for chasing an African-American juvenile through the streets for the “crime” of living...

    Cleveland, Ohio. A white man on a moped accidentally bumped into a truck being driven by a black man. He fell over but was not injured.

Jacksonville, Florida. A group of four to six white men agreed that they would brutalize the next black person they saw walking down the street. That person turned out to be a mentally disabled 50-year-old, whom they beat and stomped...

    A detailed analysis of FBI statistics covering ten full calendar years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks reveals that, on a per capita basis, American Muslims, contrary to spin, have been subjected to hate crimes less often than other prominent minorities. From 2002 to 2011, Muslims are estimated to have suffered hate crimes at a frequency of 6.0 incidents per 100,000 per year — 10 percent lower than blacks (6.7), 48 percent lower than homosexuals and bisexuals (11.5), and 59 percent lower than Jews (14.8). Americans should keep these numbers in mind whenever Islamists attempt to silence critics by invoking Muslim...

    Quick gather your children and household pets, the sweeping wave of Islamophobia that is forever sweeping our nation still remains mostly non-existent. The FBI’s hate crimes statistics actually show a slight decrease in Anti-Muslim hate crimes, but a significant increase in Anti-Catholic hate crimes which jumped from 4.2 percent to 5.2 percent. Anti-Protestant hate crimes rose from 3.3 percent to 3.7 percent. Hate crimes targeting atheists fell from 0.5 to 0.3. It seems as if last year people began hating Catholics again. And one might speculate that this rise might have something to do with the ObamaCare debate and Obama’s...

    McNerney was walking back to campus with Zach DeCicco from Main Street Brew House on South Main Street when they were approached near the rear of Lombardi’s Auto Service by as many as six males wanting to steal a cellphone, Stanek said.
