Suppose you were a Democrat politician (I know, I know, you’d rather be a spotted toad, but just pretend for a minute, okay?) who was attempting to determine which special interest groups you’d like to protect with ‘hate crimes’ legislation. Whom would you choose?
The fact that ‘hate crime’ is a nonsense term is beside the point. Any crime is by definition not within the allowable bounds of behavior and is therefore punishable. Hate crimes are really ‘thought crimes,’ in that when one smacks a member of a class protected by special legislation, he or she is thought to be loathing the victim and is therefore liable for more punishment than if the victim is not so favored. One simply does not assault the dignity of a protected species, don’t you know. Either way, the bruise is the same. Only in one case is the insult counted.
So you list the classes of people you want to favor with your pandering legislation. Let’s see…okay, racial groups would be reasonable. According to the hate crimes notion, it’s a bad thing to be racially prejudiced when you beat up a black or Latino or Asian person. Better that you should respect him as an individual while you pound him into pulp. So, yes, racial groups make the list.
How about handicapped persons? To assault a mentally challenged person simply because he doesn’t quite get it when you ridicule him is reprehensible, but are you necessarily ‘hating’ him at the time? Or are you just a bottom-dwelling slimebag? Anyway, handicaps make the list.
Now…hmmm. Okay, sexual orientation. Let’s consider that. Smacking a homosexual simply because he’s chosen that lifestyle is unacceptable; everyone agrees with that. But is it necessarily ‘hate’ that motivates a redneck who pops a homo in the face? Or, again, is the perpetrator just a jerk who would cheerfully smack an elderly woman for her wallet, all the while not ‘hating’ her at all? But never mind. Homosexuals get the special protection.
Ethnicity. Country of origin. Yes, that’s a good one. Whacking a Pakistani is just so darned hateful, don’t you know. (Or is it just because you’re a slime…Never mind.) So ethnicity makes the list.
Religion is a good one. Never smack a Mormon or a Hindu or a Zoroastrian. You could likely get away with slapping a Christian because they’re so pushy with their evangelism and all and therefore deserve a good licking. So, yes, religion makes the list.
Oh, of course! Women! Can’t be hating women when we paste them in the nose, now, can we? Okay, women get the special designation.
Gee, when one reviews the list, it appears that only straight white males can be beaten without the added penalty of ‘hate.’ How did that happen? (Oh, yeah, they’re not a special interest group that can be pandered to for votes. But we won’t let that little cat out of the bag, will we?)
Oh, wait. Oh, my, my! We forgot a group. How could one forget….
My friends, I kid you not. Pedophiles !! Men (and rarely, women) who are so twisted and sick and selfish that they will attempt to have sex in one manner or another with children!
The Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives recently ensured that a Hate Crimes bill passed by a vote of 249-175 even knowing that all 547 identified forms of sexual deviancy would be designated as a special class deemed “hateable.” Democrat Alcee Hastings, a former federal district judge who was impeached, thrown out of office, and then elected against a white challenger in an overwhelmingly black district of Florida, stated on the House floor that this bill will “guarantee that all Americans, regardless of (see above categories) and all ‘philias’ and fetishes and ‘isms’ need not live in fear because of who they are.”
Did you get that? If the bill passes the Senate, which Ted Kennedy has vowed that it will, and is signed into law by Obama, here’s what could happen: you’re a mother who witnesses a grown man exposing himself to your seven-year-old daughter. You storm up and smack the disgusting vermin across the face with your purse and grab up your daughter to protect her from this sociopathic degenerate. The police capture him, and yes, he is charged…with a misdemeanor. Meanwhile, you are charged with a felony for violating a federal hate crime!
The Dems needn’t have protected pedophiles with this odious piece of compost. But they certainly did. They knew full well what they were doing. Representative Steve King, Republican of Iowa, proposed an amendment stating “The term sexual orientation as used in this act or any amendments to this act does not include pedophilia.” It was voted down along strict party lines. Every Democrat in the House voted against it.
What could possibly motivate a person to vote for such a sickening bill? I can only guess. It must be one of two reasons, or perhaps both:
a. The Democrats are so in debt to the sexual deviancy crowd, including homosexuals, transsexuals, pedophiles, animal bondage fetishists, and cross-dressers, that they simply vote in lockstep whenever legislation favoring these groups appears.
b. The Democrats are evil. Truly, truly sick and evil.
Nothing else can account for their behavior.
Please bear this in mind the next time you hear of a child being raped.
