“Hateful Words” Will Be Prosecutable
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will end you up in prison.
That’s what the Marxists in Congress have just rolled out with the disingenuously titled “Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (H.R. 1913)” that passed the Judiciary Committee on Thursday for a full House vote for passage next Wednesday.
In it, the Marxist tyrants have added gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, and disability to the list of protected categories under federal hate crimes law which in essence will criminalize the First Amendment and make anyone speaking out against Homosexuality or whatever else the government lists – a Federal felon.
Think I exaggerate?
During the Judiciary Committee markup of the bill, Congresscretin Sheila Jackson-Lee (S-Texas) said that people could be prosecuted for having a particular belief by stating: “We also need to protect those potential victims who may be the recipients of hateful words or hateful acts, or even violent acts.”
Every attempt made to get the Marxists to exempt religious belief and speech from the bill was rejected. Every attempt to get the Marxists on the Committee to define terms of ‘orientation’ that are ridiculously vague, was voted down.
The juggernaut of tyranny is overpowering our ability to analyze them at the rate they are firing them out of this regime in Washington.
But then perhaps that is the idea, to keep even those who are watching, so bewildered that by the time the really big tyrannical crap comes down – we are so tired and numb from the Marxist onslaught, one more affront just won’t seem to matter.
Just this evening it is coming to light that Obama and the Marxist regime is planning to ram nationalized Health Care down our necks next week – with little debate allowed and no ability to filibuster, or hold up the measure before passage.
But then this is how the Soviet Politburo and most governments under dictators operate.
Perhaps we have already arrived at an Obama Marxist dictatorship and we don’t realize it yet.
As has proved to be true in both Europe and Canada, this Orwellian piece of legislation is the direct precursor to freedom killing and speech chilling “hate speech” laws. It represents a thinly veiled effort to ultimately silence – under penalty of law – morally, medically and biblically based opposition to the homosexual lifestyle.
…Under the 14th Amendment, victims of violent crime are currently afforded equal protection under the law regardless of sexual preference or proclivity. If passed, H.R. 1913 will change all that. It overtly and, most likely, unconstitutionally discriminates against millions of Americans by granting federally preferred status, time and resources to individuals who define their identity based upon aberrant sexual behaviors (i.e., “gay” and lesbian “sexual orientation” or cross-dressing “gender identity”).
Of course, this entire concept flies in the face of the 14th Amendment. It inarguably codifies unequal protection under the law, creating a two-tiered justice system made up of first-class victims such as those who self-identify as homosexual or “transgender” and second-class victims such as the elderly, children, pregnant women, veterans, the homeless and others who choose not to engage in homosexual or cross-dressing behaviors.
…This creates both a sociopolitical and legal environment wherein traditional sexual morality officially becomes the new racism. Those who publically express medical, moral or religious opposition to the homosexual lifestyle are tagged by the government as “homophobic bigots” to be treated no differently by law enforcement, the courts or larger society than the KKK or neo-Nazis.
In short, this bill places newfangled “gay rights” in direct conflict with our enumerated constitutional rights. It becomes the first step in the official criminalization of Christianity. It’s a zero sum game and someone has to lose. Ultimately, what we lose are our First Amendment guaranteed rights to freedom of speech, religious expression and association.
But the threat is not just some shadowy phantom looming in the near future. It’s a clear and present danger. While debating the notion of “conspiracy to commit a hate crime” in the last Congress, Representative Artur Davis (D-Alabama) admitted that the legislation could be used to prosecute pastors for merely preaching the Bible under the concept of “inducement” to violence.
And some people have tried to excuse the DHS report on ‘Right Wing Extremism” to be a simple misunderstanding of this regimes intentions.
Right. And Hitler never really hated Jews either.
