HATE BILL MOVES FORWARD IN SENATE
By Rev. Ted Pike
14 Jul 07
Hoping to avoid detection from opponents in the religious right,
Senators Edward Kennedy and Gordon Smith have quietly moved the federal
hate crimes bill into the Senate. The Senate will vote, perhaps as
early as this Tuesday on whether to include it as a "rider" on
the huge federal defense bill, HR 1585. Now designated SA 2067, the
new Senate hate bill is about half the length of the House version
which passed the House earlier this year. But it gives its primary
supporters, the Anti-Defamation League and the homosexual lobby,
everything they need to end free speech in America, establishing
a mammoth federal "thought crimes" bureaucracy as in Canada.
Lovers of free speech may have only one day, Monday, to persuade
the Senate not to include the hate bill as a rider. If you value
freedom for yourself and your children you must give top
priority to calling your Senator first thing Monday morning!
Call (1-877) 851-6437 toll free or (202) 225-3121 toll and tell
your Senator: "Please don't attach Sen.
Kennedy's 'hate crimes' bill SA 2067 to the arms bill S 1547. Hate
laws have taken away free speech in Canada and many European countries.
If you do vote for the hate bill, I and my friends will do our best
to defeat you in the next election!"
Call many other Senators! Come to www.truthtellers.org for lists
of Senators who might be persuaded to vote against Kennedy and Smith's
hate crimes amendment.
The hate bill needs 60 votes in order to be added to the arms bill.
If we can pressure only a half dozen to vote against it, we can powerfully
weaken the hate bills chance of passage. Yes, if the hate bill is
defeated as an amendment, Kennedy and Smith may reintroduce it as "stand
alone" legislation. Yet, having already suffered one rejection
it would be much more difficult to pass. These conspirators want
to move it through quickly, as "stealth" legislation. They
are doing so over the weekend so that the religious right will not
have time to fully mobilize on Monday. Let's not let them get away
Call, and call again, Monday morning. Take action as if your freedom
and that of your children depended on it - as it surely does.
