New ADL Hate Law Worst Ever
By Rev. Ted Pike
The Anti-Defamation League’s new federal “anti-hate” bill,
HR 2662, provides federal protection and prosecution for hate crimes
involving “real or perceived” “gender identity.”
What in the world does that mean?
It means that, if a man “perceives” a transvestite “female
impersonator” to be a real female and threatens “her,” saying “Bitch,
I’m going to kick your butt,” then the man can be prosecuted
for a hate crime. Yes, even though the “woman” he threatened
was actually a man!
Why is this a hate crime? Answer: Bias motivation against women,
a federally protected group, is demonstrated by the word “bitch.” Threat
of kicking is proof of intent to do physical harm.
What would be the probable penalty for conviction?
The ADL’s federal hate law triples penalties for crimes motivated
by bias. The man’s threat to the “she-man” would
become a felony, punishable by probably not less than five years
in federal prison.
During a heated football game in Idaho in 2001, Lonnie Rae used
the “N” word to the black coach, threatening to kick
his butt. He was arrested for violation of Idaho’s ADL state
hate law. The State of Idaho pressed for five years in state prison – a
penalty that was unanimously supported by the press and people of
(Actually, five years in prison is mild compared to what the ADL
wanted for eleven Christians in Philadelphia last Oct. 10th. For
them, the ADL hoped for 47 years in prison and $90,000.00 fine each!)
BREAKING BARRIERS OF ABSURDITY
The ADL’s new legislation, “The Local Law Enforcement
Enhancement Hate Crime Prevention Act of 2005,” HR 2662, continues
to break new barriers of absurdity.
No wonder. The head of the ADL, Abe Foxman, has been behaving strangely.
During controversy over Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of
The Christ,” Foxman disguised himself as a Catholic priest
in order to gain admission to a preview of the film. When discovered,
the press laughed at him.
What outlandish proposals will the ADL come up with next? Perhaps
they will make it a “hate crime” to laugh at those who
are “perceived” to be Catholic priests, yet turn out
to be ADL snoops!
The ADL is lobbying hard for passage of HR 2662 – legislation
that will not only end free speech, but free speech talk radio.
