‘Donald Trump’ is now a war cry

In schools across the country, the president’s name has become shorthand for racist and anti-Semitic invective targeting students in hallways, classrooms, and playgrounds. Using reports compiled by the Document Hate project, a hate-crimes database established by ProPublica, BuzzFeed News conducted the first nationwide analysis of 149 bullying incidents that evoked Trump’s name or comments between October 2016 and May 2017. Its reporters then followed up on 54 cases through news reports, interviews, and public statements from school officials.

As hate crimes, including several murders, have swelled since last year’s election, so too have instances of students echoing rhetoric straight from the president’s mouth and tweets. At an Albuquerque elementary school playground, third-graders circled a boy and repeatedly yelled “Trump!” On a San Antonio, Texas, school bus, a Filipino student was told, “You are going to be deported.” In Louisville, Ky., a third grader chased a Latina girl around a classroom shouting, “Build that wall!” After a high school football game in Jacksonville, Fla., white students chanted “Donald Trump!” at black students from an opposing school.

The writer above deplores what she describes but I see it as a cathartic release from years of Leftist speech suppression

There are four incidents cited, but only none of them appear to be crimes at all. Even at the most generous perhaps two could even remotely be considered part of a 'crime' of any variety - and certainly not a 'hate' crime - whatever the hell that means.

When years of anger and frustration is coupled with extended economic depression the conditions are ripe for bad things to happen.
Sometimes a rallying point is found which channels that emotion and legitimises and gives it a veneer of acceptability.
Acting out on those feelings rarely produces good things and almost always produces the worst.

BoP,

It is hysterical watching you thrash about like a baby in a crib while continuing to expose your stupidity and ignorance.

For Pete's sake, try learning some English grammar and spelling before posting invectives.
