The Hate Crimes Bill was signed into law October 28, 2009. It is a sad day for America. The reasoning behind the law is totally erroneous. The fact that it was attached to the 2010 Defense Appropriations Bill, is even more of a travesty. Number one, there is and was absolutely no need for any hate crimes legislation in the first place. The very name of the Bill itself: "Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act," lends the Bill to some serious scrutiny. What a misdirection and meaningless piece of work. It will not prevent any crimes of hate. I mean, what is a hate crime anyway? As opposed to a crime of non-hate. Let's face it, nobody murders another person, unless there is at least a little animosity there. So, by it's own definition the Bill is flawed. Another travesty of the Law, is the fact that it only works in one direction. You see, if a white person assaults a black person, the Hate Crime Law applies, however, if the situation is reversed, it does not apply. Another example: If a straight person assaults a gay person, the straight can be tried under the Hate Crimes Law, however, if the situation is reversed, the law does not apply. The two unfortunate victims this Act was named after, one being gay, and one being black, were in fact victims of racial and gender prejudice, there is no doubt. The perpetrators of both crimes have been arrested, tried in a court of law, and convicted. There was no need for an additional law to be enacted just because the victims were black and or gay. We already have laws on the books that covered these crimes, and the laws worked. I can name a number of incidences where the situation was reversed, but does anyone want to hear those, no one in main stream media, that's for sure. Let's start with the brutal murder of a thirteen, that's (13) year old boy named Jesse Dirkhising. Two gay men abducted, tied up, and repeatedly sodomized the young boy, young Jesse was gagged with his own underwear, strapped to a mattress were he eventually died of suffocation. If this happened today, these gay men would not be tried under the Hate Crimes Law, because they are gay. Here's another one for the record: Ken Tillery, who is Ken Tillery? Ken Tillery was a white man, walking down the road in Texas, when three men offered him a ride. They drove him to a remote location, scared to death, when the car stopped Tillery tried to run away, the kidnappers caught him, beat him, and finally ran over him, he was caught in the undercarriage of the car, and dragged to death. Surprisingly, an online search of 557 newspapers found that only 22 papers covered the story. You know why? Because the three kidnappers were black, that's why. If this happened today, the kidnappers would not be tried under the new Hate Crimes Law, because they are black, and for no other reason. I guess it is inconceivable that blacks and gays can commit crimes of hate, are blacks and gays incapable of hating, are they not at all guilty of racially intentioned crimes? I don't think that's it at all. The entire Hate Crimes Act is nothing but a way for the government to control the majority. If you are white, straight, or Christian, you will now have to watch what you say. Another free speech right has been taken away by the enactment of this Bill. Priests, pastors, and counselors can now be held liable for any crime deemed a hate crime, if the perpetrator has heard any anti-gay rhetoric from the pulpit. If one were to read the Holy Bible, and that may be banned for spewing hate, because according to the Bible, homosexuality is an abomination unto the Lord.
It is a sad day indeed for America. God Help Us.
