by Patrick CleburneHolder's Chilling Blunders on Hate Crime
Last Thursday, as I noted in A-G Holder: No Hate Crime Protection for White Christians or Servicemen Attorney General Eric Holder made some potentially disastrous concessions while testifying for S.909, the Hate Crime Bill.
The invaluable Rev. Ted Pike has now produced a ten minute video analyzing these blunders, remarking
In Senate testimony last week, Holder attempted to justify passage of the Matthew Shephard Hate Crimes Prevention Act. Instead, he worked against it. Holder emphatically said most Americans are not given equal protection with homosexuals (and homosexual pedophiles) by the hate bill. Holder also presented no evidence that states are failing to prosecute hate crimes and need big government to get involved!â€¦ As we have seen many times over the last 11 years, God causes hate bill supporters in Congress to bungle, especially when it seems certain the hate bill is about to pass
The video is on his site here. (Also note that you can sign up for email on this legislation at the top of his site.)
Just how dangerous is this situation is well illustrated by the explosion of furious rage on this Canadian blog. The TV signal from Buffalo has the temerity to reach across the border into Hate Speech-policed Canada, as the result of which this woman found herself watching to one of the Silencing The Christians series which says it
â€¦takes you on a journey across the country to meet citizens who have been arrested for speaking out at a public rally, students who are being forced to attend classes that require them to recite verses from the Koran and to stage their own jihad and activists pushing social tolerance to such an extreme that the Bible itself is being labeled â€œhate speech.â€
Her rage knows no bounds
this filth was, in fact, â€˜paid programmingâ€™â€¦they promote the usual hate-filled, homophobic, â€˜gay agendaâ€™ screed, but they go a step further - blaming Pride events and gay rights demonstrations for incidents of violence against Christiansâ€¦.I couldnâ€™t get through the whole thing without throwing up.
But other news from America cheered her:
Happily, it seems I wasnâ€™t the only one repulsed by this crap: â€˜Silencing Christiansâ€™ paid program draws protest calls, e-mails
TAMPA - A flood of telephone calls and e-mails cascaded into WFLA News Channel 8 on Saturday afternoon and night over the airing of â€œSilencing Christiansâ€¦ Stratton Pollitzer, deputy director of Equality Florida, has seen the program and said the message was clearly hate speech. â€œI think this program is a piece of homophobic propaganda and it has no place on a major network like NBC,â€ he said just after 7 p.m., as the program was airing.
(Equality Florida is a Homosexual pressure group. Protest to Stratton Pollitzer)
As matters stand at present, Silencing The Christians probably could not be aired by a Canadian broadcaster. There are plenty of Americans who would, shamefully, like to be able have that power here. As I said last Friday of the Senate Hearings (webcast here on right)
Anyone who reviews the comments and deliveries by Democratic Senators Feinstein(CA), Cardin (MD)and Schumer (NY)(c. 53 minutes, 79 minutes and 89 minutes) cannot doubt that, for them, this legislation is a stepping stone to criminalizing political opinion. Feinstein actually cited the immigration debate as necessitating passing the Bill!
This is a desperately serious matter. With a politicized judiciary, who knows where it will go?The Establishment â€œConservativeâ€ media and, of course, the Plutocrats of the Immigration reform movement (NumbersUSA, FAIR, and CIS) remain silent.
