UNITE AGAINST HATE LAW TYRANNY!
By Rev. Ted Pike
20 July 09
When Hitler and Mussolini came to power, parliamentary governments
had been in place in Germany and Italy for at least a half a century.
These dictators established political power outside legislative due
process, under the guise of national emergency. They ruled by fiat – claiming
such was the only efficient way to regain national power and honor.
In just this way, Democrats betrayed justice in the Senate this past
On Thursday, with audacity Sen. John McCain said is “breaking new ground,” Democrats
approved their hate bill in disregard of literally every constitutional
restraint on tyranny. They defied adequate and fair Judiciary hearings, Mark-up
session, Rules session and allowance of open debate before a quorum on the Senate
floor. This is not the American way. It is government and law by legislative
fiat, the way of Napoleon, Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin.
It is tyranny.
How should lovers of freedom respond to this and other coming assaults on liberty?
The hate bill victory is a green light for ADL-inspired hate laws such as ENDA
and cyber-bullying bill, HR 1966. Having passed the landmark hate crimes bill
via totalitarian means, Congressional Democrats will continue their strategy
with even greater boldness.
Patriots of all religious and political persuasions must unite with
a shout of protest against further shattering of freedom.
Disunity Plagued Hate Bill Opposition
Liberal activist groups welcome any faction, no matter how depraved. Such
cooperation has not existed among conservatives in opposition to the
hate bill this winter and spring.
As early as late December, I began to broadcast and write against the hate
bill. I phoned new right leadership groups, encouraging them to jumpstart education
and offensive action. Over the past seven months, I have given 196 radio interviews,
posted 72 articles at www.truthtellers.org and created 5 short documentary
videos against the federal hate crimes bill. I provided the calls to action
that slowed what might have been extremely rapid passage of the hate bill.

Yet for the first nearly four months of the hate bill’s progress, except
for WorldNet Daily, the evangelical right responded with silence and inaction.
The religious right only finally came alive after I dramatized the House Judiciary’s
rejection of Rep. Steve King’s demand for a pedophile-excluding statement
on the hate bill, as well as Rep. Alcee Hasting’s enthusiastic support
of the hate bill’s protection of pedophiles. The most striking form of
protest that finally emerged was WorldNetDaily’s campaign (initiated
by Janet Porter) to FedEx hundreds of thousands of form letters to the Senate.
This was fueled by a continuous stream of WND articles opposing the hate bill.
With the notable exceptions of Focus on the Family and Family Research Council,
a number of evangelical watchdog groups, particularly Traditional Values Coalition
and Faith2Action, began to loudly militate against the hate bill.
Yet if you read their articles or listen to their broadcasts, you will notice
that to this moment, there is no mention of the in-depth educational ministry
of the National Prayer Network and its website, www.truthtellers.org. Our website,
if visited by countless Christians/conservatives, could exponentially energize
hate law opposition.
Boycotting Ted Pike
Early this winter an evangelical leadership source told me that he
listened to a telephone conference between top evangelical leaders
concerned about how to stop the hate bill. He said that all major watchdog
groups agreed nothing should be said or done to indicate any association
with “anti-Semitic” Rev. Ted Pike. Another leadership authority
told me WND’s Joseph Farah was particularly determined his online
newspaper generally say nothing that might suggest influence from me.
Does this help explain the initial nearly four-month silence of most of the
religious right toward any recognition of the hate bill threat? Were they afraid
that, if they popularized the issue, people would flock to the world's preeminent
website in opposition to hate laws, www.truthtellers.org? Would people discover
the ADL (Jewish supremacist) origin of hate laws, undermining evangelicals’ claim
that hate laws originate with liberals and homosexuals? It is likely.
For the past seven months, I have repeatedly seen the religious right ignore
vital information about the hate bill threat and opportunities to defeat it
for only one possible reason: they didn't want to be seen as influenced by
After Janet Porter, head of Faith2Action, informed me that conservative witnesses
were being turned away by Sen. Leahy’s Senate Judiciary Committee, I
immediately quoted her, mounting a national campaign of protest. She called
back to tell me that Andrea Lafferty of Traditional Values Coalition and some
of her radio listeners had “reamed her out" for even talking to
me! She warned me that if ever again I mentioned publicly that I had talked
to her, she would never answer any call from me -- even concerning an imminent
hate bill threat!
On July 10 and again on July 12, I emailed WND’s Bob Unruh and Joseph
Farah that the hate bill would be coming to a vote very quickly and they must
rally immediate protest. WND responded by posting articles on such topics as
Obama’s dubious citizenship all week until 11:35 p.m. Wednesday, July
The hate bill passed on Thursday.
The "Threat" of Ted Pike
St. Paul asked, “Have I therefore become your enemy by telling
you the truth?” (Gal. 4:16) I am only a “threat” to
deep, habitual error that leads evangelical leaders and their followers
into unholy alliance with spiritual and political wickedness. I testify
that they and their fathers are guilty of holding to an unbiblical
policy of unconditional support of Israel. This has led to carte
blanche approval of more than 60 years of the most horrendous human
rights abuses against the Palestinians. Their inflexible policy of
non-criticism of Jewish supremacy, including its ascendant control
of media, government, finance, education, etc., as well as hate crimes
laws, has effectively built the walls of the coming Judaic New World
order, “Babylon the Great.” (See, Jews
Confirm Big Media Is Jewish, 6/26/06 at truthtellers.org ) Their
refusal to criticize matters Jewish is responsible for allowing ADL
to attain legislative dominion over Congress.
I bring the accusation that they have not guided and guarded their Christian
flock as true and faithful shepherds. They have feared Jewish supremacist wolves
more than they love their lambs. They flee for fear of the Jews rather than
lay down their lives (and reputations) to protect the flock God has entrusted
It’s debatable who fears me most: evangelical leaders or ADL! But, as
we saw through my initiation of massive protest last week (leading directly
to acceptance of the Brownback amendment), all I have done has borne good fruit – not
evil. The Brownback amendment will help protect free speech in the most vicious,
freedom-destroying legislation ever passed by Congress.
Is Ted Pike Anti-Semitic?
I have never uttered an anti-Semitic statement -- because I am not
anti-Semitic. Anti-Semitism is the racist belief that all Jews are
genetically conspiratorial, degenerate, or corruptive. Hitler believed
that. He thought the world would be a much better place without their
existence and took steps to actually bring it about.
I believe the problem with Jewish supremacists in media, government, finance
and Israel is that they, like their literal or spiritual forefathers the Pharisees,
have made many, many bad moral decisions.
As a result, I, like the Hebrew prophets, must rebuke them (or any sinner)
as the Lord leads. I do this in hope they will repent, as did St. Paul, who
said, “My heart’s desire and prayer is that Israel be saved.” (Rom.
10:1) If I fail to reprove or warn, or if I do not speak the whole, undiminished
truth as God directs, I jeopardize my eternal soul. (Ez. 33, Jer. 26:22)
If I am anti-Semitic, then Jesus, John the Baptist, and all the prophets
were raving anti-Semites! They scathingly reproved all Jewish sinners,
especially those abusing high authority. Thus far, God has not led me
to criticize evil Jewish leaders in language as searing and condemnatory as
Jesus used in His incendiary attacks on the Pharisees!
We Can Trust the Truth
A central problem with Israel-first leadership and laity is that
they fear the consequences of telling the whole truth about ADL authorship
of hate laws, Jewish control of the media, Jewish origins of Communism,
etc. (See, Jewish
Activists Created Communism, 6/11/07 at truthtellers.org ) They
fear the whole truth will bear evil fruits – an outbreak of rampant
anti-Semitism, persecuting God’s chosen people and frustrating
His desire to preserve and redeem a remnant of them at His second coming.
Actually, evangelical leaders are in much greater danger of provoking
anti-Semitism by quenching the truth. By exempting the vilest
Jews from criticism and letting ADL establish oppressive hate laws
worldwide and legislative control of Congress, they empower ADL to
arouse the bitterest resentment of those they would enslave. ADL,
not Ted Pike, is much more likely to provoke worldwide anger and even
virulent, vulgar anti-Semitism.
The whole truth is a fresh, cleansing wind that redeems society. Jesus
said, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." (John
8:32) Truth-telling is the affirmation of reality. Until we embrace and serve
truth completely, we will forever parse and manipulate reality in a vain,
self-defeating attempt to be safe and respectable.
As we have seen over the past several weeks, the evangelical right, knowing
full well the imminent danger of hate bill passage, yet deciding to ignore
my calls for action, only made themselves foolish. The depths of such foolishness
were plumbed the previous week by the recommendation of Dr. James Dobson and
FRC’s Tony Perkins that everyone should end all attempts to defeat the
hate bill and just pray. ( Listen to Focus on the Family 's James

Eventually, after I alerted them that homosexual calls in favor of the hate
bill exceeded those of Christians against it, evangelical leadership groups
finally did what was right. They worked with God and with me to create a massive
three-day hate bill protest that continued just as strongly on Friday, the
day after hate bill passage! When they did what was right, instead of being
narrowly protectionistic and reactionary, God blessed us with adoption of the
But the question remains: If Christian/conservative leadership groups had been
as proactive and vigilant as the National Prayer Network, might the hate bill
have been defeated?
One thing is sure. Considering the darkness that looms before us, we dare not
repeat our mistakes.

hate laws capable of persecuting Christians, and spearhead attempts to pass the
