NEW VIDEO: 'HATE LAW JIHAD!'
By Rev. Ted Pike
26 Mar 09
Have you ever criticized Islam - perhaps for its militancy or
restrictions on women? An increasing number of people in Canada, Europe,
and Australia have--thinking they were within their free speech rights.
Next thing they knew, a Muslim or local Muslim council hauled them
into court on the “hate crimes” charge of defaming Islam.
One defendant in England--prominent political leader Nick Griffin--faced
a possible seven years in prison for calling Islam a “wicked
Today, the hate laws the Anti-Defamation League established in Jewish self-interest
are being exploited by Muslims. Hate laws are part of ADL's self-protective agenda
of discouraging criticism of Jewish matters and Israel. ADL is also intent on
restraining the advancement of Christian values, evangelism, and political activism.
But now, Islamic zealots are increasingly ready to use hate laws for their own
ends, pouncing on any pastor, talk show host, politician, or outspoken citizen
who “defames” Islam. In fact, the 56 Muslim nations that dominate
the U.N. Human Rights Council are attempting to force all U.N. member nations
to criminalize criticism of Islam through the “Combating Defamation of
In response to the changing, widening threat of hate laws, we have produced another
10-minute video alert, Hate Law Jihad: How Hate Laws Criminalize Islam’s
Critics. We reveal stories of people who faced Muslim-backed hate crime
lawsuits and indictments. Our video proves that all free thinkers, liberal or
conservative, religious or not, are vulnerable to prosecution if a Muslim-protecting
federal hate crimes law is established in America.
In fact, Canadian and European hate laws have often been enforced retroactively.
If federal hate crimes bill HR 256, now in the House Judiciary Committee, becomes
law, we can expect hate crimes indictments against those who “incited violence” against
Muslims by criticizing Islamic behavior or doctrine, even if it was years ago!
We can also expect special federal protection of Muslims through HR 262’s
massive national reeducation program against “bias,” if this becomes
law in public schools from kindergarten through college.
Stubborn Silence from Religious Right
It is now 10 weeks since the federal hate crimes bills, HR 256 and
HR 262, were introduced in Congress. Yet almost all of the largest
Christian/conservative “watchdog” groups (including the
American Center for Law and Justice, Focus on the Family, Family Research
Council, and Concerned Women for America) have made no effective warnings
or calls to action against them. I’ve quit speculating on the
reasons for such baffling silence in the face of the most freedom-destroying
legislation ever to enter Congress! But our National Prayer Network
will never quit doing our best to alert Americans and develop
strategies to hold the hate bills back.
I have spoken on 64 talk radio shows since January 1 and saturated the listeners
to “far right” alternative talk radio with warnings against the
hate bills. I am now pursuing interviews on mainstream talk radio - liberal
or conservative. Our new video Hate Law Jihad was created to reach
this vast audience. Many people have criticized Islam and should realize they
are personally threatened by encroaching hate crimes legislation.
With this audience in mind, we are unveiling our updated website, www.hatelawsexposed.org.
It is exclusively dedicated to the hate laws issue and especially emphasizes
the threat to critics of radical Islam. All our hate law videos, including Hate
Law Jihad, can be viewed on www.hatelawsexposed.org as
well as www.truthtellers.org.
Still Time to Save Free Speech
Mercifully, the federal hate bill HR 256 has not yet moved forward
into hearings in the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime. God has
given us precious time to further educate Congress. It is more important
than ever to call the House and Senate - especially the crucial 39
members of the House Judiciary Committee. A relatively small but steady
number of calls are still made to Judiciary members. These legislators
will decide whether the hate bills die in committee or shoot forward
to the House for a vote. I am encouraged by reports from callers that
many liberal and conservative Judiciary staffers say they are aware
of www.truthtellers.org and
have watched How to Kill the Hate Bills.
It's time to encourage staffers to watch Hate Law Jihad at www.truthtellers.org.
Expanding knowledge could turn Congress against hate crime laws completely!
I believe protest calls to the Judiciary may have already put brakes on the
hate bills. Pro-hate bill Democrats may fear that your daily calls are an omen
of more controversy to come and don't want their hate bill humiliated in debate
on the floors of Congress and a sixth defeat. Perhaps they realize Americans
still don't want a federal hate bureaucracy, and that some other form of legislation
should be contrived to achieve police state sovereignty.
We know one thing for sure. To members of Congress, your call stands for a
thousand other citizens who feel just like you but don’t have the impetus
to act. Members of Congress know this “silent majority” is very capable
of voting out them out of office if hate laws become unpopular enough and they
vote for them!
Let’s magnify such anxiety in members of Congress. Even if you’ve
called the Judiciary members before, call again! Route their staff to Hate
Law Jihad, now on the main pages of www.truthtellers.org and www.hatelawsexposed.org.
Call your members of the House and Senate toll free at 1-877-851-6437
or toll 1-202-225-3121. Tell them, “Please don’t
vote for any hate crimes legislation. Don’t vote for HR 256 and HR
262. Please watch online the video Hate Law Jihad which shows how
Muslim extremists will use a federal hate law to criminalize critics of Islam. It's
Members of Congress have criticized Islam more than anyone; in fact, their “hateful” remarks
are part of the Congressional record. Let them know--as all Americans should--that
the federal hate law they are now considering could, like a cobra released
from its cage, turn on them!
Watch the dynamic 10-minute educational video How to Kill the
Hate Bills at www.truthtellers.org which
explains how the two hate bills, HR256 and HR262, threaten freedom.
Please tell the offices of members of Congress to watch it! Also
at www.truthtellers.org, watch our gripping 82-minute documentary Hate
Laws: Making Criminals of Christians.
Let the Anti-Defamation League teach you how they have saddled 45 states with
hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and spearhead attempts to pass the
federal hate crimes bill: http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
