Hard upon the heels of this battle, another piece of flotsam is floating around and is set to be presented to the US Senate verysoon.
This piece of dross is called Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, H.R. 1592 or, the Matthew Shepard Act.
For those of you who don't know (and I can't imagine that you don't because the Pink Mafia continues to beat us all over the head with this story), Matthew Shepard was a young gay man living in Wyoming who was beaten and murdered by two viscious local yokels.
While Shepard's tale is a tragedy, the two who killed him got what they deserved.
But you have to look deeper at what is going on here. This bill is supported by the Human Rights Campaign and the ACLU. Both are left-wing organizations who's agendas are to strip away your rights and make us all bow in obeisance to the homosexual political lobby.
This hate crime legislation is unnecessary. I feel all hate crime legislation is unnecessary and is only enacted to pander to special interest groups. The politicians who come up with these laws can then thump their chests and pat themselves on the backs and say, "Look what I did! I care SOOOO much for gays and minorities that I pushed this IMPORTANT legislation through!"
|For me, a seemingly innocuous bill known in the Senate as Matthew Shepards Law (S1105) can lead us down a slippery slope that ultimately limits our freedoms. The proposed hate crimes legislation does not provide adequate |
protection of free speech. Many seasoned legal minds believe that S1105 and its companion House bill HR 1592 are discriminatory measures that criminalize thoughts, feelings, and beliefs, and provide greater protection to some victims than others simply because of an inherent status or a lifestyle that they have chosen such as gay, lesbian, or sexual orientation.
It is a fact that whites are overwhelmingly victimized by "persons of color"much more than the other way around. Sure there are some high-profile cases but when the victim is white and the offender is black or hispanic, no Hate Crime legislation is used against the offender. Is that fair?? No. Is it effective? No.
Hate Crime laws are a big waste of time. Just like passing stricter Gun Laws does nothing but interfere with Lawful ownership, Hate Crime laws only embolden minorities into buying more and more into a communal sense of victimhood.
Send an email to your senators telling them that they should vote NO for this useless new legislation.
