Hate crimes have been on the rise in the US for a while now, with data showing an increase of over 80% between 2009 and 2016.
While hate crimes are a serious problem, the data also shows that the rise is largely due to social media.
As social media and the internet have allowed for more people to connect and share their views and opinions, there has been a rise in hate crimes in the last couple of years.
While the number of hate crimes rose by over 70% in 2016 alone, the number was still slightly lower than the year before.
The rise in crimes is largely a result of the rise of hate groups and social media campaigns, as well as a more diverse population.
In the US, hate groups have grown by more than 30% since 2015, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
In addition, hate crimes have also been on a steep increase in Europe, where the rise has been particularly pronounced.
According to a 2016 report from the French government, hate crime incidents in the European Union increased by over 1,500% between 2015 and 2017.
In 2017, there were an estimated 3.7 million hate crimes across the EU.
The rise of social media is likely to continue, with hate groups like the Traditionalist Worker Party (TWP) having been particularly active on the platform over the last year.
TWP is one of the most extreme white supremacist groups in Europe and is notorious for targeting immigrants.
They have made anti-immigrant posts on social media including one that said “We will be going to the United States with all the Jews.”
In 2017 the group published an online manifesto that argued that immigrants should be deported, and called for the US to be “exterminated from the face of the Earth.”
TWP has been active in the UK, where they have been a vocal presence.
TWP also recently released a video that said that the “war on Christmas” was “a war on children.”
The TWP manifesto also called for immigrants to be expelled from the UK.
“We believe that the end of the world is coming and we are fighting the battle on the streets and in the halls of parliament, not in a basement room in a bar,” the TWP statement reads.
This video was also released on Facebook, which is considered a platform for extreme white supremacists.
The post said, “We believe in a white, Christian nation, where we have no borders, where our culture is protected, where every child has a home, and where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
We will not be silenced by anyone who will tell us we cannot be white, English, Christian, Muslim or Jewish.”
The rise is likely a direct result of an increased amount of hate speech on social platforms, with the TPP recently making a statement that they would be “going to the country with all of the Jews,” according to The Independent.
In 2017, the TPS manifesto called for migrants to be deported from the country.
“If we are deported, we will never return,” the statement read.
“Our goal is to bring all the people of this country and all their families to the shores of Europe and to this land.”
The statement was also criticized by the British government, which claimed that hate speech online had a “direct correlation” with terrorism.
Earlier this year, the White House released a statement condemning hate speech and extremism.
“In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris, we’ve seen an uptick in threats against mosques and Muslim communities across the country,” said the statement.
“The hateful rhetoric and actions of some have been chilling and dangerous, and we condemn them unequivocally.
But the American people have seen that the same type of hateful rhetoric, that same type in the streets, is not a threat to our safety.
Hate speech is not an American value, and it’s not a value that our country values.”
