http://m.tmz.com/#!2019/01/29/empir...-attacked-hospitalized-homophobic-hate-crime/ Fox news is reporting that Chicago police are investigating this as a hate crime, but I would suggest that it also a terrorist attack. This story is terrifying in both its audacity, the fact that the victim is such a prominent individual, and because if the larger socio-political implications. Terrorist attacks in the US are being driven, in large part, by a rise of right wing extremism. New York just convicted its first White Supremacists for terrorism. Right-Wing Extremism is Still the Biggest Threat to National Security and I look forward to Trump's national security crisis declaration on that issue.
