fake hate crimes: a database of hate crime hoaxes in the usa



The purpose of this site is to compile a comprehensive database of the false reports of "hate crimes" committed (mostly) in the USA. It builds on the work of Laird Wilcox, whose Crying Wolf (PDF) is the original book on this subject. The books Hate Crime Hoax and Hate Crimes: Criminal Law & Identity Politics are recommended, as are the websites Watching the Watchdogs and Fake Hate Map.

summary
It's possible that a real Nazi painted a swastika outside the office of Democrat representative David Scott of Atlanta. But probably not, argues John McCormack. The Weekly Standard is a generally conservative publication, but McCormack links to fake hate crime reports by both left wing and right wing people.
