Harvard Students Debunk Study Claiming Hate Crimes Rise Following Trump Rallies

“The original study was produced by three professors”

Does everyone remember the hatred directed at Trump supporters following rallies in 2016? That’s the only hate I can recall after such events.

Jack Crowe writes at National Review:

Econ Students Debunk Study Showing Drastic Rise in Hate Crimes Following Trump Rallies

A study purporting to show area hate crimes tended to spike following Trump rallies, which went viral earlier this year, is fatally flawed in its methodology, according to a new analysis by two economics P.h.D. students at Harvard University.

The study, which found a 226 percent increase in white-nationalist propaganda and hate crimes in counties that hosted Trump campaign rallies, failed to account for political campaigns’ preference for hosting rallies in highly populated areas that naturally tend to experience more hate crimes, according to the analysis conducted by Harvard P.h.D. candidates Matthew Lilley and Brian Wheaton.

Lilley and Wheaton were able to replicate the initial study’s findings with respect to Trump rallies, but found an even greater increase in hate crimes in counties that hosted Clinton campaign rallies during the same period.

Once the researchers controlled for population size, the effect of Trump rallies on hate crimes became “statistically indistinguishable from zero.”

The original study was produced by three professors at the University of North Texas and Texas A&M, Ayal Feinberg, Regina Branton, and Valerie Martinez-Ebers. It was cited in articles published by Vox, the Washington Post, the San Francisco Chronicle, and CNN as evidence that Trump’s anti-immigration rhetoric incites violence.

Isn’t the modern “Academe” astounding !
Decide the outcome then create a way to obtain it !

Just another example of how libs have NOTHING good to offer, their agenda to destroy our great country allows for any and all distortions, un-ethical behavior, and outright lies to achieve their goals.

What “anti-immigration” rhetoric would that be? America has had anti-immigration parties and politicians, but DJT isn’t one of them.

He’s not too wild about criminals, though.

P.h.D.? I’m guessing Jack Crowe doesn’t have a Ph.D.

Well, those students have probably blown any chance they ever had of getting their PhDs. How long before they are expelled over anonymous sex crime accusations?

It was more than hate. More than political myths. It was assault and battery. It was violence committed outside their chamber walls. An expression of acute phobia motivated by a fear for reform that would address progressive prices, human rights, civil rights, and political congruence.

First you write your conclusion, then cherry pick the evidence. Just like climate science.
