I was referring more to this quote, actually:

I am increasingly frustrated with the, for lack of a better term, “pussification” of America. And that includes the crippling political correctness that has intensified under Obama.

Oops.

Left to wonder if Yahoo misspelled “bigger” or just forgot the double quotes when quoting Trump directly.

Clearly the latter because if the former they would have used “bigly.”

I don’t get it.

I hope this is some of that “fake news” that everyone’s always talking about.

Nope, seems to be real.

Is this a hate crime?

I haven’t followed it very closely, but from what I’ve heard it is…and is being prosecuted as such?

JEDIT: Yep.

Four suspects are facing hate crime charges after an 18-year-old mentally disabled man was bound, beaten, taunted with racial slurs and forced to drink from a toilet in a video broadcast live on Facebook, prosecutors said Thursday.

Is this a hate crime?

The first news story I read on this (can’t remember the site) clearly stated in the opening paragraph that the perpetrators were black and the victim was white. I went back to the same site later that day and they’d edited it to remove the races of those involved.

I lean toward the liberal end of the spectrum and I still think this is clearly an anti-white guy crime, especially given the anti-Trump rants of the perpetrators. I don’t know what the legal requirements are for a hate crime, though — do people need to be a member of a minority or protected group in order to be victims of a hate crime, or is only the intent of expressing hate toward a particular group required? I also suspect that if this were 4 white people hammering on a black guy and screaming anti-Obama nonsense, it would be classified as a hate crime and the races of those involved would be displayed prominently in all news stories (except Fox News, maybe).

JEDIT: Frink got in right before I did.
