There have been conflicting reports with regards to increases in harassment, intimidation, and violence since election night 2016. The Washington Post reports that “The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate crimes, had counted 201 incidents of election-related harassment and intimidation nationwide as of Friday. Richard Cohen, president of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala., told USA Today, ‘The white supremacists out there are celebrating his victory and many are feeling their oats.'” Elsewhere the idea that previously “well-behaved” racists, xenophobes, and misogynists would be emboldened by the election results has been criticized and incidents of false reports on social media have been high-lighted.
