Blaming all hatred on Trump

The NY Times reports:
This Week in Hate tracks hate crimes and harassment around the country since the election of Donald Trump. ...

On Friday, a post on the anti-Semitic website the Daily Stormer called for a “troll storm” against Jewish people in Whitefish, Mont., where Sherry Spencer, the mother of the white nationalist leader Richard Spencer, owns a building. The post’s author, apparently reacting to calls for Ms. Spencer to sell the building, published pictures of Whitefish residents, including a child, with Star of David symbols and the German word for “Jew.”
If you want both sides of the story, see Sherry Spencer and Daily Stormer. She posts some evidence that she is the victim here.

This appears to be some sort of rural conflict between a left-wing Jewish group that hates Christians, and a right-wing group that hates Jews. The NY Times takes the side of the Jewish leftist Christian-haters, and blames it all on Trump.

Speaking of hating Jews, a Si Valley paper reports:
Google says it is “thinking deeply” about improving its search results after learning that Holocaust deniers and others were successful in making their links rise to the top. ...

In the U.S. and the United Kingdom, those searching for “Did the Holocaust happen?” received a top result linking to a website with the headline, “Top Ten Reasons why the Holocaust didn’t happen.” The site is run by Stormfront, a neo-Nazi white supremacist group.
The Jewish groups should just rebut the reasons, instead of trying to censor them.

Update: Most of these Trump hate stories have turned out to be hoaxes. In other words, fake news from Trump haters.
