KENNEDY ABANDONS HATE BILL AMENDMENT!
SENATE JUDICIARY WILL HOLD HEARINGS
By Rev. Ted Pike
18 June 09
Bowing to massive protest and demand for hate bill hearings, Senate
leadership has abandoned, at least for now, attempts to fast forward
the federal hate bill to vote in the Senate as an amendment. A
hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled for 10 a.m.
EDT, Thursday, June 25. Atty. Gen. Eric Holder, who recently
came out strongly in favor of the hate bill, is the only witness yet
listed at the SJC's website (http://judiciary.senate.gov/).
This is exactly where we want the pro-hate bill Judiciary Democrats -- forced
to answer whether they, like House Judiciary Democrats, will refuse to exclude
pedophiles from special protection under the hate bill.
groups should immediately submit a list of expert witnesses, like Robert L.
Knight, to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
But will Senate Judiciary Republicans put up the same fight their House counterparts
did seven weeks ago? They have a dismal record of almost no vocal opposition
to the hate bill during final passage by the Senate in the previous Congress. Only
Sen. Orrin Hatch really put up a vehement and systematic protest. (See, Hate
Bill Manipulators Should Come Clean)
It is vital that you call Judiciary Republicans NOW (names
available HERE at www.truthtellers.org). Call toll-free
1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-225-3121. Ask the staffer to
relay this message to the Senator: "Please vigorously oppose the
hate crimes bill in Judiciary hearings next Thursday. Demand an amendment
excluding pedophiles from special protection."
Call Judiciary Democrats and all members of the Senate (also
on the Action Page at www.truthtellers.org). Ask them not to vote for
the pedophile-protecting hate bill. S. 909 is still extremely dangerous
legislation, and Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy will undoubtedly conduct the
same "kangaroo court" hearings Conyers did in the House, ramrodding
the hate bill through while giving the illusion of due process. Democrats
might also propose their own sham amendment, seeming to ban pedophiles but actually
not. (See, Democrats
Fear Hate Bill Hearings) Demands must go NOW to the entire Senate for
a "no" vote on the hate bill if rapidly sent to the floor for a vote
after next week's hearing.
Since Monday I've been warning against the hate bill, demanding hearings,
on 700 radio stations (predominantly Christian). YOU can be even more effective
now by joining with countless others to jam phone lines to the Senate, call in
to talk radio, and spread protest on the internet.
This is the decisive moment when America decides if we will remain a free
republic or vassal to a one-world hate crimes gestapo.
Make calling the Senate your top priority for the next week. This is YOUR
hour to change history!
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.
