As it turns out, the study that Vox cited was never even published. But the same methods that were used in this paper to peg Trump, if applied to Hillary Clinton instead, would have shown the exact same results.
But that hasn't stopped Democratic politicians like Bernie Sanders, for instance, from sharing the fake news study on Facebook, in which he included a blurb calling on President Trump to stop his "racist, hateful and anti-immigrant rhetoric" because it's supposedly creating "a climate which emboldens violent extremists."
Ilhan Omar of Somalia also cited the fake news study via her Twitter account, tweeting that President Trump's "rhetoric is directly and indirectly inciting hate."

The only thing the two Harvard students who identified the study's flaws had to do was plug in the same data from counties where Clinton held campaign rallies to find that, using the same methodology, hate crimes rose in these areas as well.
"The ostensible finding: Clinton rallies contribute to an even greater increase in hate incidents than Trump rallies," they wrote in a piece published by Reason.
In truth, there's actually no such thing as a "hate crime." But since the term has invaded the modern lexicon and become a weapon used by the left to demonize conservatives, as well as President Trump, it's important to address fake news like this every time it rears its ugly head.
Vox should be ashamed of itself for not doing due diligence in investigating the methodology of the study in question. Had its editors done so, they would have quickly learned that it was basically manufactured out of thin air to slam Trump and his supporters, which is all the mainstream media seems capable of doing these days.
The reality is that the biggest haters out there are leftists, which spew derogatory statements all over social media aimed at white people, men, Christians, and conservatives. The difference is that they're never held to account for their digital hate crimes because only conservatives can commit hate.
It's much like how leftists claim that only white people can be racist, and that black people are never racist. This is an inherently racist statement, of course, but one that many leftists have been programmed to say whenever they're challenged about their own anti-white racism, or the anti-white racism that comes from black and brown people.
"... the Left's HATE is called 'diversity,'" writes Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, about the fictitious notion that only the right is capable of engaging in hate.
"And diversity, by definition of the Left, excludes people of white skin color. To further the delusion, this exclusion of Whites is labeled 'inclusiveness,' while attacks on Christians are labeled 'tolerance.'"
