California Mosques Receive Hate Letters Re 'New Sheriff' Trump

And promising...Promising! ...that Trump will behave as Hitler did. No, really.

The election of Donald Trump is emboldening all kinds of whacked out hate crimes. This, for instance, via the LA Times:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations has called for increased police protection of local mosques after letters that threatened the genocide of Muslims and praised President-elect Donald Trump were sent to multiple California mosques this week.

A spate of bias incidents that followed Trump’s presidential election victory has drawn serious concerns from police and human rights activists.

The Southern Poverty Law Center last week reported 701 incidents of harassment since Trump’s win, with most occurring in the first three days following the election. Of those, 206 incidents were anti-immigrant and 51 were anti-Muslim.

It's "interesting" to see the "controversial" statements made by Donald Trump nonetheless normalized as the Beltway media obsesses over whether Trump is mad at Kellyanne Conway.

Meanwhile, people who claim to be in support of him promise he will be just like Hitler. Really!

This. Is. Not. Normal.
