In an age where left-wing violence far outnumbers right-wing violence, liberals predicting an explosion in “hate” following Donald Trump’s rise are grasping at straws to find something to fit the narrative.
The latest tragedy the left is wrongly using to exploit this is the horrific murder of Nabra Hassanen, a 17 year-old girl who was beaten to death after leaving mosque earlier this week. Before any real details surrounding the tragedy were in, it was already being pushed as the latest anti-Muslim hate crime (which is somehow the Right’s fault).
The murder of #Nabra was a hate crime done by a terrorist

Trump had chance 2 save Nabra Hassanen, but instead he encouraged hate against Muslims & now we have a girl beaten to death 4 being Muslim! https://t.co/ZfysYXZYlu

No words. No words. Heartbroken. We all failed you, Nabra Hassanen.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) asked police to “conduct a thorough investigation of a possible bias motive in [Hassanen ‘s] case, coming as it does at a time of rising Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hate attacks nationwide.” Police are investigating — but they already have reason to doubt painting it as a hate crime. In fact, once you learn a bit more about the perpetrator, you may be agreeing with Marie Lu’s tweet at the end there, but not for the reason she thinks.
As the Daily Wire noted:
There’s a new twist in the murder of a teenage female Muslim in Virginia –- the alleged murderer is an illegal immigrant.

The motivation for the murder thus far seems to do that it began as a road rage incident which escalated.
Fairfax County police:17-year old Muslim teen killed after leaving a mosque in VA Sunday was "road rage incident,"no evidence was hate crime

While CBS, NBC, and ABC covered the murder of Nabra initially, by Monday evening only ABC was reporting on the update that the murder suspect had been found, but naturally, they failed to mention his legal status.
A liberal can only possibly try to blame this tragedy on President Trump if they were to complain he’s not tough enough on illegal immigration — and it’s doubtful we’ll see that happen anytime soon.
