ADL'S NEW 'TROJAN HORSE' HATE BILL
By Rev. Ted Pike
15 Jan 09
The Anti-Defamation League, architect of hate laws worldwide, has
served up two hate bills to Congress this term. These include a condensed
version of the same one that failed to pass over the past ten years, “The
David Ray Hate Crimes Prevention Act.” Reintroduction of
the familiar bill was no surprise, as it had been rejected five times.
The big news is emergence of a different sounding hate bill, a seemingly harmless
version with ostensibly humanitarian, not punitive, ambitions. This is the David
Ray Ritcheson Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, H.R. 262. It is classic “Trojan
horse” legislation, attempting to charm wary legislators into making America
a hate crimes bureaucracy.
H.R. 262 wants to establish a federal hate crime “clearinghouse” or "resource" center
and database. Through a website and 24-hour hotline, it will receive hate crime
complaints nationwide. “Anti-bias” pro-homosexual education will
pervade every level of American schooling – from kindergarten to graduate
school. It will “prevent" hate crime through an extensive curricula
dedicated to eliminating those “seed ideas” which cause hate crimes,
i.e., Christian disapproval of homosexuality. Such reeducation will be
enforced upon students, teachers, professors, and administrators everywhere. Price
tag: $10,000,000 annually.
ADL at the Top
Who will administer this new hate crime bureaucracy? H.R. 262 says
that, although Congress will make it law, it won’t be run by
the government. Instead, the bill says the government will be looking
for a private non-profit organization with broad experience
in hate crimes education, prevention, and statistics gathering.
Where might such a high-minded, illustrious, and experienced organization be
found? You guessed it. There’s only one "civil liberties" group
remotely equal to that task, one which describes itself as “the world's
leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that
counteract hatred, prejudice, and bigotry," the Anti-Defamation League
of B’nai B’rith.
H.R. 262 is ADL's attempt to insert itself into the U.S. government as the
nation’s hate law teacher. It already fulfills that role in law
enforcement. Since passage of ADL's Hate Crimes Statistics Act in 1980,
it received federal authority to teach hate crimes theory, enforcement, and
statistics gathering to the U.S. Justice Department, FBI, and police clear
down to the local precinct. ADL is not only PR representative for Israel but
is the adjunct of a Jewish religious organization, B'nai B'rith International. ADL
loudly protests Christian mixing of religion with politics, but no one compares
to ADL's mixing of synagogue with state!
If ADL can’t pass the familiar hate bill, establishing power of the federal
government to punish hate crimes in the states, it hopes to pass its second
bill, endowing itself with unlimited powers to educate us and our children
out of the "mental illness" of "homophobia." Through
the decades, ADL made it abundantly clear that it considers bias against homosexuality
rooted in biblical "hate speech" as the underlying cause of hate
crimes against homosexuals.
Christian-Persecuting State Hate
“But,” you may ask, “What good is education against
hate crimes unless there is government power to enforce it?”
Actually, ADL already has persuaded 45 U.S. states to pass versions of its
model anti-hate law. These potentially Christian-persecuting hate laws were
set up since 1990 to make sure that even if it fails to pass a federal hate
bill ADL will still have local empowerment to persecute Christians. Such
diversified enforcement is far inferior to massive federal enforcement, yet,
clearly, ADL, after ten years of failing to obtain a federal law, may be ready
to settle for second best. Control of federal hate crime education
nationwide with at least 45 states locked into laws inclined to criminalize
Christian “haters” means tremendous advancement of ADL's goal to
end freedom - just as ADL ended freedom in Canada under its similar hate law
For the past 30 years, ADL has had to ask state governments, school districts,
city councils, civic organizations, etc., for permission to educate their members.
ADL initiatives have included its “No Place for Hate,” “World
of Difference,” and now cyber-bullying, anti-homophobia programs. If
H.R. 262 is passed, ADL will enjoy federal authority to teach anti-Christian
values on all levels of U.S. education. Educators, parents, or students
will have to take it or become federal criminals! In 2008, Gov. Schwarzenegger
passed liberal Jewish activist Sheila Kuhl’s anti-Christian bill S.B.777,
making it illegal to criticize homosexuality in California public schools. If
H.R. 262 is passed, a tidal wave of federal suppression of Christian values
will flood every classroom in America.
Homosexuals: New Welfare Class
S.B. 262 contains other unprecedented pro-homosexual initiatives.
Although the 14th Amendment to the Constitution forbids special rights, privileges,
or services to preferred groups, S.B. 262 defies this giving special federal
assistance to alleged victims of hate crimes. These include unemployment
compensation, leave from work, temporary housing, free legal help and advocacy
as well as psychological counseling.
Who proves that an alleged hate victim is really a victim and not
just scamming the government? Will a court verdict, following trial by a judge
and/or jury, be required? Absolutely not. If that were the criterion,
then only the tiniest number of hate crimes victims could file for compensation. Only
a small percentage of the alleged 7,500 alleged hate crimes in America are
proven as fact in court of law. The rest are “hate crimes incidents” – taunts,
fisticuffs, verbal “intimidation," etc. which are judged by the
local police as “hate crimes” but have never seen a courtroom. Instead,
S.B. 262 says the opinion of the prosecuting attorney is sufficient
to establish the plaintiff as a bona fide hate crime victim. Such a declaration
may be given by the DA just as soon as he decides to prosecute the "hate
criminal." If the alleged victim claims he has been unable to work
because of "emotional stress," he is then eligible for immediate
federal benefits and unemployment compensation even though his case may be
never go through the court. The government will also provide benefits to his
civil union "spouse," sons, daughters, or parents! This means that
all a homosexual has to do is scream, "Hate crime!" convincingly
enough, persuading the local DA to prosecute his adversary. He may then
start receiving many forms of federal assistance. Victims of the same
crimes, not motivated by bias, can only look on with envy.
It takes little imagination to envision a new welfare class of predominantly
homosexual hate crimes "victims," created by S.B. 262.
Will Congress buy it? Rep. Jackson-Lee’s legislative expert told
me the creators of S.B. 262 are optimistic that its soft-sell, compassionate
approach will persuade Congress to pass it. He’s probably right, especially
if Christian/conservative watchdog groups are not courageous or innovative
enough to fight it.
Of one thing we may be sure: No Christian/conservative leader will breathe
a word of how ADL has created or will benefit from this frightening legislation.
Since ADL is Jewish, they will continue to lie to their constituencies, spreading
the fantasy that hate laws are the brainchild of the "homosexual lobby."
That leaves it to you and me to expose and battle down S.B. 262. The best way
to accomplish that is to do what has worked so well before: repeatedly bombard
Congress with communications. Call toll-free 1-877-851-6437 or toll
1-202-225-3121. Here’s our own new double-barreled message: “Please
vote against both hate crimes bills, H.R. 256 and H.R. 262.
Hate laws have taken away free speech in Canada and
many European countries.”
