Recently, MSNBC and NBC News highlighted former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s tweet pointing to the fact that two weeks after 9/11, Carly Fiorina gave a speech in which she nearly entirely praised Islam. (Her remarks contained numerous errors and omissions of facts. One primarily being that more than half of Muslims worldwide are illiterate, have no personal computer, have no Internet, and have no human rights protections. The GDP of 57 Islamic countries is miniscule.)

While overall a balanced article, the MSNBC/NBC reporter failed to cite basic statistical data consistently released by the FBI. The most targeted victims of hate crimes in America are not Muslims, LGBTQ, Blacks, or Latinos– even combined. The most targeted victims of hate crimes in America are Jews. In fact, some of the most dangerous places for Jewish children/teens in America are public schools and college campuses.
