Lynch also didn't mention the high number of alleged anti-Muslim hate crimes that were later found to be faked by Muslims so they can portray themselves in the U.S. as victims, when they aren't. Just today a Muslim college student in New York was arrested for fabricating such a story about being attacked on the NYC subway by drunken Trump supporters.
Lynch acknowledged the uptick in what she called "unacceptable" (which, to a liberal, means 'I'm going to tell on you') against Muslim Americans.
"[A]mid an increase in divisive and fearful rhetoric--we have seen Muslim Americans targeted and demonized simply because of their faith," she said at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society Center in Sterling, Va.
Yes, FBI statistics show hate crimes against Muslims rose by 67 percent in 2015 going from 154 in 2014 to 257 last year.
She called the numbers "deeply sobering for all Americans." She made an implicit Trump reference saying it's wrong to attack people for their beliefs.
"[T]o impose a blanket stereotype on all members of any faith because of the actions of those who pervert that faith is to go backwards in our thinking and our discourse, and to repudiate the founding ideals of this country," she said.
I guess the anti-Semitic crime numbers are acceptable to Lynch, but that's because she has to answer to Barack Obama.
