Media claims “spike” in hate crimes against Muslims, FBI shows anti-Jewish attacks over twice more common

  BY 
The FBI hate crimes statistics for 2015 are out, and the establishment propaganda media is using them to create the impression of some massive increase of violent “Islamophobia” in America:
“FBI: Hate crimes spike, most sharply against Muslims” — CNN
“U.S. Hate Crimes Surge 6%, Fueled by Attacks on Muslims” — New York Times
“FBI: Hate Crimes Against Muslims up by 67 Percent in 2015” — Associated Press
“FBI: Hate crimes against Muslims up by 67 percent in 2015” — CBS News
“FBI reports rise in hate crimes, with biggest spike against Muslims” — The Week
“FBI reports hate crimes against Muslims surged by 67% in 2015” — The Guardian
In reality, however, as in past years, anti-Semitic hate crimes are over two times more common than hate crimes against Muslims — yet get nothing close to the same media attention. Where is the guy carrying the sign reading, “We care for our Jewish neighbors”?
Also, how does the FBI compile its statistics about “anti-Muslim hate crimes”? Does it remove incidents that turned out to have been faked by Muslims to further victimhood propaganda?
In any case, this much-touted 67% increase in anti-Muslim hate crimes brings the total to 257. Every authentic hate crime is reprehensible and the perpetrators should be prosecuted, but 257 hate crimes in a year in a country of 318 million doesn’t really seem like the wave of “Islamophobic hate crime” of media myth. Anti-Muslim hate crimes are less than one in a million. That’s a fine demonstration of the decency of Americans — but that doesn’t interest the establishment media.
