Counties that hosted a 2016 Trump rally saw a 226 percent increase in hate crimes

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

...Using the Anti-Defamation League’s Hate, Extremism, Anti-Semitism, Terrorism map data (HEAT map), we examined whether there was a correlation between the counties that hosted one of Trump’s 275 presidential campaign rallies in 2016 and increased incidents of hate crimes in subsequent months.

To test this, we aggregated hate-crime incident data and Trump rally data to the county level and then used statistical tools to estimate a rally’s impact. We included controls for factors such as the county’s crime rates, its number of active hate groups, its minority populations, its percentage with college educations, its location in the country and the month when the rallies occurred.

We found that counties that had hosted a 2016 Trump campaign rally saw a 226 percent increase in reported hate crimes over comparable counties that did not host such a rally....Additionally, it is hard to discount a “Trump effect” when a considerable number of these reported hate crimes reference Trump. According to the ADL’s 2016 data, these incidents included vandalism, intimidation and assault.

What’s more, according to the FBI’s Universal Crime report in 2017, reported hate crimes increased 17 percent over 2016. Recent research also shows that reading or hearing Trump’s statements of bias against particular groups makes people more likely to write offensive things about the groups he targets.

Could it be legal for jurisdictions to ban Trump rallies on grounds they are likely to incite hate crimes, given this clear pattern? Free speech ends when it incites violence against others.

1. Well Chicago was declared a trump free zone by our mayor . I don't imagine Lightfoot the new

mayor as of later this month, will change that.
If towns really do not want the rally , flood all the streets with protestors near the rally and he will not be able to get in without a hassle and is easily spooked .

He called off Chicago not the cops as he claimed
Shut it down with numbers that’s the power of the good people in those towns

Interesting ...when I went for the wiki on this I see it includes a lot of republican rival quotes from the primary 2016 on how divisive Trump was .
Now they say zip

2. I would be lying if I said that this surprises me because it does not surprise me in the least.
