NEW HATE BILL: OBITUARY FOR TALK RADIO
By Rev. Ted Pike
28 Jun 05
The Anti-Defamation League’s new, tougher hate
bill, “The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act
of 2005,” HR 2662, if passed, will very soon end free speech
and free speech talk radio. The ADL, through similar legislation,
has already ended free speech in Canada. It wants to do the same
Here’s a summary of how this bill would make law.
HR 2662 intends to enforce nation-wide the working ADL/federal
definition that “hate” equals bias against federally
protected groups. Particularly against:
Homosexuals. Any specific public criticism of homosexuals will
eventually be considered a hate crime, just as it already has been
for eleven Christians under the ADL’s Pennsylvania hate crime
law on Oct. 10, 2004.
Transvestites. Female impersonators, and persons with confused
or altered gender, will gain special federal protection against bias-motivated
threat. This includes transvestites who are threatened for sexist
reasons by males who perceive them as really being women. Such men
will be prosecuted as “hate criminals” against women,
even though the “woman” they were biased against was
actually a man!
Women. Any woman who claims, “The last time I had sex with
him, he used a sexist word against me. He raped me!” can press
charges for a “hate crime” of rape. Punishment will be
triple the usual penalty – about 30 years in prison.
Jews. B’nai B’rith, a Jewish religious organization,
invented “hate laws” to make public criticism of homosexuality
a “hate crime.” Yet this is only a step toward B’nai
B’rith’s real objective: making public criticism of Jews,
matters Jewish, and the State of Israel, a hate crime. HR 2662 intends
to give the same special federal protection to Jews as to homosexuals,
providing a green light for corrupt Jewish leaders to intensify their
domination of the media, Congress, and the Mideast. Hate laws will
eventually empower Jewish leadership to imprison those who criticize
them, be they Jews or Gentiles.
HR 2662 will invite pedophiles, witches, warlocks, Satanists and
even “sinners” to acquire special federal protection
from anyone who criticizes them, including pastors. Witches and warlocks
in England are, today, lobbying hard for inclusion under Britain’s
ADL hate law.
If passed, HR 2662 will provide immediate special FBI, Justice
Department and local police assistance to protected groups that claim
to have been offended. On the slightest evidence of bias, the police
will descend [as the world saw happen last October in Philadelphia]
upon Christians, pastors, talk show hosts and radio station managers,
indicting them with trumped-up “hate crime” charges and
FEDERAL TAKEOVER OF LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT
A huge barrier to establishment of a federal hate bureaucracy has
been the sovereign right of states to enforce the law as they see
fit. Heretofore, the federal government has had to prove that such
abuses as jury tampering, voter fraud, and slavery existed in states
before it could meddle in state law enforcement. HR 2662 would legitimize
as law several devious strategies to break down all barriers to federal
HR 2662 asserts that if a violent bias crime within a state in
any way affects interstate commerce, the federal government has the
right to invade state law enforcement. This means that, if a homosexual
has been called a “faggot” and been threatened to have
his butt kicked by a gas station attendant, and as a result does
not patronize that gas station, whose products have come from across
the state line, the federal government can intervene. Or if the homosexual
buys a Greyhound ticket (vehicle of interstate commerce) to re-settle
in San Francisco as a result of such threatened “violence,” the
federal government has a green light to take over state hate crime
law enforcement in that state. Sec. 7(2)(B), Sec. 2(5-8).
HR 2662 asserts that bias-motivated violence in states is a “relic” of
slavery. This bill contends that the presence of bias-motivated violent
crime within a state is proof that slavery still exists in that state.
This provides the same justification for intervention that the federal
government had in putting down slavery during the Civil War! Sec.
Under HR 2662, the government can take over local law enforcement
states do not have hate laws; Sec. B (b)(2A)
states are not enforcing state and federal hate laws as zealously
as the federal government wishes; Sec.B (b)(2A)
states do not produce the kind of verdicts in hate crimes trials
that the federal government wants. Sec. B (b)(2D)
VIOLATING THE CONSTITUTION
HR 2662 is in flat violation of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution,
which prohibits government from favoring any particular group.
HR 2662 will give ADL complete control of the federal anti-hate
agenda. Very quickly, via enabling legislation and judicial precedent,
any pretext of respect for the rights of Christians or dissenters
will dissolve. This has already happened under the ADL anti-hate
law in Canada, England, Ireland, Sweden, France, Italy, Australia,
New Zealand, and under Pennsylvania’s ADL hate law in Philadelphia
on Oct. 10th.
All criticism of protected groups via politically incorrect terms,
such as “homosexual” or “sodomite,” will
become hate crime, just as it is under the British ADL hate law.
A huge number of legal precedents will continuously widen hate
Courts will quickly become clogged with federal indictments.
Staggering backlogs of unresolved cases, will make the federal
hate law, like Roe vs. Wade, virtually impossible to repeal.
FCC restrictions will soon descend on talk show hosts with lists
of unapproved topics. Talk show hosts will be fined or imprisoned
and stations will lose their broadcast licenses, just as in Canada
today, if they violate those restrictions.
TALK RADIO – ON THE ENDANGERED LIST
Talk show hosts – Do you get the picture? If HR 2662 passes,
your occupation as a free speech talk show host will go the way of
You have two main options. First, wait and see what happens, fearful
of offending a huge religious organization, B’nai B’rith,
and their sycophantic yea-sayers, the Israel-first evangelicals.
If you opt for this, you might as well start taking night classes
to prepare for another line of work.
Or, you can invite me on your show for a very spirited and persuasive
program, thoroughly convincing your audience to help save your occupation
by protesting now to Congress.
In Canada in Aug. 2004, “CHOI FM,” Quebec City’s
most popular talk show station, lost its license to broadcast. Among
its "speech crimes," one of its talk show hosts criticized
African dictators whose children were educated in Canadian universities.
The government considered this a "hate crime" against blacks.
Today, CHOI FM and its 33 employees continue to broadcast only by
persuing a very costly appeal to Canada's Supreme Court. If that
fails, CHOI FM is off the air.
If HR 2662 is passed, exactly the same will soon happen to you
and your station if you stray to the slightest degree from the new “politically
correct” FCC guidelines.
May I hear from you soon? My number is (503) 631-3808.
The ADL is lobbying hard for passage of HR 2662 – legislation
that will not only end free speech, but free speech talk radio. ADL
still has tremendous power in Congress. All it might take is one
outrageous hate crime, such as a homosexual being dragged to death
behind a pickup, to ignite ADL-assisted national outrage, stampeding
Congress into quickly passing HR 2662.
We must lay a foundation of education that will help resist storms
of “anti-hate hysteria in the years ahead. The best way to
do that is to read the articles against hate laws at www.truthtellers.org
and purchase online Rev. Ted Pike’s gripping video documentary, ”Hate
Laws: Making Criminals of Christians” for $24.90.
Show this video everywhere you can, especially in your church.
This video is free to talk show hosts who request it.
TO PROTEST HR 2662, CALL YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS

your audience fully understand the threat and vagaries of hate crimes
laws. He is available for interview at (503) 631-3808.
