HOUSE WILL VOTE ON HATE BILL SOON!
By Rev. Ted Pike
18 Apr 07
On April 17, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime heard testimony
for and against the federal anti-hate bill, H.R. 1592. Today, I was
a guest on Janet Folger's radio program (www.f2a.org) with Brad Dacus
of Pacific Justice Institute (www.pacificjustice.org). Dacus testified
at length in Judiciary against this legislation. He told us he encountered "hostility" from
members of the subcommittee. They argued that the federal hate bill
would not erode free speech but merely empower the government to
put down violent physical hate crimes.
Although, as of today, more hearings are not officially scheduled
for the beginning of next week, Dacus will remain in the capitol
to testify in hearings he is sure will come. He and Folger, along
with a recent WorldNetDaily article, contend that the hate bill is
now on fast track to a vote in the House as early as the latter part
of next week.
Clearly, a double-pronged attack on freedom is in high gear in both
House and Senate.Lovers of freedom must protest NOW to the Senator
and House member from your district. Call 1-877-851-6437
No hate bill has been in the Senate until last Thursday. As a result,
the Senate is undereducated concerning the hate bill threat. It is
vital to call all members of the Senate, especially those who are
not the most hardened liberals. Send my powerful flyer Anti-Hate
Laws Will Make You a Criminal to your Senator and their 8-10 influential
legislative aides (available at www.truthtellers.org).
Pro-hate bill forces in the Senate seem to have the necessary 60
votes to pass S. 1105. We must remember, however, that 9 Republicans
have joined them -- Republicans who, under relentless pressure from
their constituents this week, might come back to the Republican fold.
If only 2 succumb to our protest, fearing failure to be re-elected,
the hate bill will be destroyed in both House and Senate for this
term of Congress.
Keep phoning and sending emails or faxes! Call repeatedly. The fate
of freedom and our republic depends upon what you do before next
