On Monday — Christmas Day, the Christian holiday set aside to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ — the radical far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) tracked the social media hashtags #Christmas, #MerryChristmas, #Jesus, and #ChristmasEve, as part of “trends in a community of far-right Twitter users,” Breitbart.com reported.
The SPLC says its “hate tracker” monitors accounts that represent what it calls a “range of extremists,” from “conspiratorial fringes of mainstream conservatism to outright white supremacists.”
According to the alleged “hate” tracker, #Christmas is the second highest trending hashtag it tracked on Christmas Eve, with @whitehouse and @potus being among the four top Twitter handles mentioned with the hashtag, Breitbart said.
For #MerryChristmas, the U.S. Marine Corps’ band at @marineband was one of the top mentioned, according to the hate tracker on Christmas Eve. One of the SPLC’s “top image” associated with #MerryChristmas is a photoshopped picture
