Hate Crimes On The Rise In America

  Hate Crimes On The Rise In America The term ‘hate crime’ was originally coined by journalists and bureaucrats in the '80s as they tried to summarize a series of crimes directed towards Jewish people, Asians and African-Americans.Jeremy Christian was being led out of the court room when he shouted, “You call it terrorism, I call it patriotism. You hear me? Die.” Christian was charged with two counts of aggravated murder, one count of attempt to aggravated murder, two counts of second-degree intimidation and one count of first-degree assault, and three counts of unlawful use of a weapon in the recent Portland stabbings.

Conservative radio host Erick Erickson had some thoughts Monday morning. Among them were that the “political left is becoming the American ISIS” and that the United States should begin talking about secession.

But one particular claim caught my eye:

We have 320 million people who hate each other and the left shows no signs of toning down rhetoric after last week’s mass assassination attempt.

The idea that basically everybody in America is so politically polarized that they hate the other side is one that many a political analyst has invoked at a time like this. It's certainly true that the vitriol seems unprecedented and that there is very little middle ground — that you either love the GOP and hate the Democratic Party, or that you love the Democratic Party and hate the GOP.

Define analysis : a careful study of something to learn about its parts, what they do, and how they are related to each other — analysis in a sentence. It's a problem that requires careful analysis . He has been in analysis for many years.

Musical analysis "is the means of answering directly the question ' How does it work?'."(Bent 1987, 5) The method employed to answer this question, and indeed exactly what is meant by the question, differs from analyst to analyst, and according to the purpose of the analysis .

But how many Americans truly feel this way?

It's not 320 million, as I suspect even Erickson would acknowledge. He was being hyperbolic, I get it. But still: It's an interesting question.

Wonkblog's Christopher Ingraham last week highlighted a Pew poll from earlier this year that found more than half of Republicans and Democrats viewed the other party “very unfavorably” — a number that has been steadily rising on both sides over the past two decades.

According to Pew's party identification numbers, 29 percent of registered voters call themselves Republicans, while 33 percent call themselves Democrats. If 58 percent of Republicans hate Democrats and 55 percent of Democrats hate Republicans, that would mean about 35 percent of registered voters hate the opposite political party.

One stunning quote that sums up James Hodgkinson's hyperpartisan world

  One stunning quote that sums up James Hodgkinson's hyperpartisan world James T. Hodgkinson, the man who shot up a congressional baseball practice Wednesday morning, was allegedly a strong Democratic partisan who was outraged over the election of Donald Trump.&nbsp;The Belleville News-Democrat, the paper in Hodgkinson's home town of Belleville, Illinois, interviewed a few of Hodgkinson's neighbors. One of the neighbors offered up a quote that speaks volumes about political culture in the United States.

The paper published an analysis of the political situation. The Other War(s) Against Iran Ali Gharib September 17, 2012. Quantitative analysis determines how much of each substance is present in a compound.

An example is an application that analyzes data about customer purchasing history and recommends other purchases the customer might enjoy.[5]. Once the data is analyzed, it may be reported in many formats to the users of the analysis to support their requirements.

Of course, that's not 35 percent of the entire U.S. population of 320-or-so million; it's just 35 percent of all registered voters. And according to Tom Bonier of the Democratic political data firm TargetSmart, the country surpassed 200 million registered voters just before the 2016 election. Using that number, you have about 70 million Republicans and Democrats who hate the other political party.

But that's not quite hate. I mean, I strongly dislike the Wisconsin Badgers and olives, but do I hate them? Probably not. (Neither of them, frankly, are really worth that much energy.)

Pew, thankfully, drilled down deeper than just “very unfavorable.” It also asked whether people believed a party was “a threat to the nation's well-being” — which seems to augur closer to hate. You can passively dislike something else, but believing it is a threat to your country probably connotes something approaching an active hatred.

Analysis paralysis or paralysis by analysis is the state of over-analyzing (or over-thinking) a situation so that a decision or action is never taken, in effect paralyzing the outcome. A decision can be treated as over-complicated, with too many detailed options, so that a choice is never made

In this case, 45 percent of Republicans hate the Democrats, and 41 percent of Democrats hate the Republicans. That's 26.5 percent of all registered voters, or about 53 million people in total.

That's not the final number, though. You also have some independents who hate one political party but don't necessarily see fit to join the opposite party. I asked Pew about this, and it sent over some numbers: 18 percent of independents see the GOP as a threat, and 19 percent see the Democratic Party as a threat. Applying that to the 34 percent of registered voters who describe themselves as independents, and there's another 25 million people who hate one side or another, for a grand total of 78 million.

And finally, it's hypothetically possible that some people who aren't registered to vote also might hate one party or another — or both. But given they haven't registered to vote, it's probably a negligible number. If you feel that strongly, you're probably going to spend 10 minutes to register to vote. And frankly, if you haven't even put in the effort to do that, your hatred isn't strong enough for this highly scientific survey.

So in the end, only about 78 million Americans actually hate the other political party — not 320 million. That's only one-fourth of the entire population! (Of course, it also includes little babies who may or may not have the capacity for deep-seated hatred. Yet.)

Maybe we don't need secession after all?

Post-recession generation to be majority-minority .
The first generation of Americans to be born in the wake of the great recession will be the first in the nation's history to include more racial minorities than whites, according to new Census Bureau data. The data show the Recession Generation, a cohort of those under the age of 6, will be made up of 50.1 percent minorities and 49.9 percent non-Hispanic whites.The long-term trend means a more diverse America in coming years; by 2 044, non-Hispanic whites will be a minority of the total population, according to current projections. Today, 61.3 percent of Americans are non-Hispanic whites.
