According to The Federalist a fake hate incident is not difficult to spot. The more an accusation of wrongdoing or criminal activity sounds like a picture-perfect capitalized example of Hate Crime or Wicked Evil Behavior, the more you should mistrust the claims.
There have been a slew of reported hate crimes since Donald J. Trump shellacked Hillary Clinton in the November election.

But, to the surprise of no one, most of the reported hate crimes ended up being complete fabrications.
In fact, it is safe to say more people were arrested for fake hate crimes than Trump supporters arrested for abusing a poor Democrat after the election. If you are aware of ANY Trump supporter being arrested for assaulting a Hillary supporter unprovoked please send us a notice.
It is also true that there were 2,000 reports of hate crimes against Trump supporters since the election.
Reddit user Dalisu put together this list of fake hate crimes since the November election.
