That's a pathetic article. The source for it ishttps://www.deseret.com/2019/1/12/20663159/the-fbi-has-been-tracking-crimes-against-latter-day-saints-for-3-years-here-s-why
The latter article offers two relevant pieces of information: the FBI started following Mormonism and other small religions in 2014; and there were in 2017 a total of 15 hate crimes against Mormons. The rest of the article is devoted to describing hate as a phenomenon and the much more significant problems for Jews, Muslims, Catholics, and many other religions. It turns out that Mormons account for the same number of incidents as afflicts Hindus, whose ranks are far smaller in the States. But hey, we matter too!
The other thing that leaps out is the nature of the crimes. The DN article does not provide the details on any of the events, perhaps because vandalism and burglary are not as impressive as mass murders in synagogues or mosques. So yes, as Monsigneur Messygoop concluded, this does look like a little kid jumping up and down, waving his arms and saying, "Me, me! I'm a victim too!"
