The Left has always been a movement which sought power to obtain their warped view of the 'greater good.' Moreover, that view has always trended toward Socialism in one variety or another. Leftists search for power is through both cultural and political avenues.

The public in America, and wherever the American mainstream media extends its reach, have recently been subjected to a multitude of what are false 'hate crimes,' the latest of which is the Jussie Smollett debacle.

To clarify, all of these examples have happened since President Trump was elected in 2016.
