Ascent of Bias Laws
If a federal hate bill is passed, it would empower vast federal sweeps against Christian haters. You don't believe that could happen in America? It is happening right now under the Anti-Defamation League's British hate law. Homosexual website www.pinknews.co.uk says "one hundred people were arrested today as part of a police sweep on hate crimes in London. The Metropolitan Police Service began a series of raids on addresses across the capitol this morning to crack down on domestic, homophobic, transphobic, race and other forms of hate crime"Operation Athena is being carried out to mark International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia ("100 Arrested in Hate Crimes Raids across London," by Jessica Geen, May 20, 2009)
In England as in Canada, it is not necessary to actually commit a crime or act of violence against members of federally protected groups to be considered "a dangerous and prolific offender", the type of person being rounded up in London. A pastor giving "homophobic" sermons from Biblical "hate literature" or even a person wearing a cross in England today can be considered an illegal, judgmental "hater", holding up non-Christians to hatred or contempt.
Don't think that alleged checks and balances in US state or federal hate laws will keep you safe. ADL's Pennsylvania hate law stipulated that it could be enforced only if bias motivated a crime. But that didn't keep ADLs national executive board member and Philly DA Lynne Abraham from arresting 11 Christians in 2004 for the "hate crime" of witnessing to homosexuals. In court, Philadelphia's prosecuting attorney argued that Philly 11 leader Michael Marcavage's biased words through the megaphone (an instrument of crime) met the state’s hate law criteria. He called for a verdict that would have imprisoned five of them, including a 17-year-old girl, for 47 years each!
For the Founding Fathers, civil rights protection was a simple idea: "All men are created equal" endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Constitutional amendments and civil rights legislation have complicated that idea. Today, hate crime laws increasingly protect a relative few from "bias" while withholding constitutional rights rights of the majority.
The federal hate bill, S. 909, seems to guarantee special protection against hate crimes, not just to homosexuals but to everyone. All of us are included within "race, color, religion, national origin, gender" On paper, that suggests equal protection for white, Caucasian, Christian American males. It also could mean the bill's pseudo-class "sexual orientation," which includes both homosexuals and heterosexuals, should give the "straight" person, attacked because of his or her sexual orientation, the same protection as the "gay" victim. On paper, it could also mean that if a heterosexual is attacked out of bias the government is obligated to punish their attacker with the same enhanced punishment of three levels higher afforded homosexuals.
In practice, these rights or provisions guaranteed to everyone are not worth the paper they are written on. They were put in the bill for only one reason: window dressing to disarm critics and persuade wary legislators. In reality, hate laws were crafted to exalt favored minorities, particularly blacks, Jews, and homosexuals, while denying free speech and action to the Christian/conservative majority. Few pieces of legislation in U.S. history have been as discriminatory as S. 909, now in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Irrespective of its motives, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 began the trend toward “anti-bias” legislation. It did more than just enforce equality to blacks; it gave them special, federally protected status and privilege over whites (affirmative action in violation of the 14th Amendment). Now homosexuals and other minorities clamor for the same special rights, not only in America but in most western nations.
The architect of these new bias crimes statutes, the Jewish Anti-Defamation League, never meant their hate laws to equally protect members of the above majority. Over the past 40 years, there exists virtually no record in hate law countries that such dominant groups have found justice or protection through hate laws. In fact, it is taken for granted by the liberal justice systems of all western nations that Christians and members of the political right are the proper objects of hate law prosecution—not protection. A Christian subjected to anti-Christian bias or violence is not defended as a hate crime victim. Nor is a white when he is the object of a racially motivated attack by a black or Latino. Or a heterosexual when assaulted because of bias by a homosexual, or a male by a vengeful feminist. This is true despite the fact that hate laws, from Iceland to Sweden to Australia, contain exactly the same written protections for the majority as the minority! It is simply taken for granted by law enforcement that hate laws will be enforced to the advantage of less than 5 percent of the population and the disadvantage of the other 95 percent.
What motivated ADL to conceive and enforce such discrimination?
The twisted enforcement of hate laws manifests the ancient ambitions of Talmudic Judaism to weaken and subdue all elements of Christian civilization. Claiming status as those who have suffered most from Christian oppression over the last 2000 years, such Jews have brought together other disgruntled groups. Armed with real, exaggerated or imagined claims to victimhood, they orchestrate bias crime laws that amount to massive perpetual reparations from the Christian-oriented west.
If a federal hate law is passed, ADL will have a free hand to revive Judaism’s ancient desire, initially recorded in the Book of Acts, to legally and systematically persecute Christians into extinction. Federal hate laws exalt Jews as a federally protected minority while empowering persecution of their ancient rival, Christianity.
In the New Testament, the Book of Acts documents more than 20 violent persecutions, revealing the Pharisaic determination to destroy the fledgling church. The destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD and final expulsions of all Jews from Palestine on pain of death, after failure of the Bar Kochba revolt in 132 AD, put an end to this Pharisaic dream. But it never died. It has been smoldering in the hearts of the most convinced and embittered Talmudists for 2000 years, waiting until ascendant Jewish power is strong enough to rekindle it. That time is come, and hate laws are the instrument to fulfill that malevolent ambition.
If a federal US hate law is passed, it will hasten coordinated persecution of Christians from Washington, then internationally, and ultimately from Jerusalem. Already, ADL’s Dept of Global Anti-Semitism in the U.S. State Department defines Bible-believing Christians as “classic anti-Semites” (See, Bible is Hate, says U.S. Government). ADL’s Abe Foxman says New Testament Christianity is the seminal cause of anti-Semitism over the past 2000 years, plunging the Jewish people into a living hell of unimaginable suffering. He says Christian evangelism to Jews today is anti-Semitism. (See, ADL's Foxman: New Testament is Anti-Semitic) Christian evangelism in hate law countries like Canada and England is increasingly considered a hate crime punishable by prison if repeated.
Hate laws are perverse, ingenious instruments of perpetual persecution of Christians as well as all who are determined to think and speak independently. Although endorsed and promoted by the American Jewish community in general, they are not the product of the Jewish people. (See, Jewish Left, Christian Right Square Off for Hate Bill Battle) They are the brainchild of a sinister, left-wing, yet often religiously orthodox cabal within Judaism, a minority of Jews consisting of ADL and B’nai B’rith International (with chapters and lodges in 56 nations).
Christians must open their eyes and realize that, as Rabbi Daniel Lapin warned, they "are under relentless attack" from this minority of leftist Jews who promote homosexuality, same-sex marriage, pornography, abortion, media corruption of our morals, removal of public symbols of Christianity, as well as wars in the Mideast in defense of Israel -- anything to weaken Christian America. (See, Rabbi Lapin: Christians Under 'Relentless Attack' by 'Secular Judaism')
What kind of people write and pass laws that promise to protect all but actually only do so for a select few?
The kind the prophet Isaiah contested in his day: the esteemed, yet corrupt Jewish priests and leaders. They were "those who decree unrighteous decrees." (Is. 10:1) He proclaimed woe unto them!
The kind Jesus said "sit in Moses' seat" as exalted lawgivers to the Jews "that appear righteous unto men, but inwardly are full of ravening and wickedness and dead men's bones" -- the Pharisees.
The kind who today are praised by presidents and honored by the legal profession, academia, legislators and who describe themselves as "the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism." Yet, with colossal ingratitude, they promote every despicable perversion and deception in order to destroy the Christian nation and civilization which has given freedom and safety to their people, the Jews, to a degree unimagined in previous ages.
What kind of people produce and will enforce legislation as discriminatory, and ultimately enslaving, as federal hate bill S. 909? A group of hypocrites known and feared worldwide by a simple acronym: ADL.
Call all members of the Senate and demand hearings on S. 909, 1-877-851-6437 toll free and 1-202-225-3121. Call repeatedly (every other day), especially call the 19 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The names are available on the Action Page at truthtellers.org.
Tell the Senator: "Please hold hearings on the pedophile-protecting hate bill S. 909. If the Senator votes for this bill, my friends and I will never forgive or forget."
The next scheduled action by the Senate Judiciary Committee is June 3 and is about immigration, not the federal hate crimes bill. At that time the bill -- originally intended to be passed quickly by the Senate Democrats -- will have been stalled nearly five weeks.
The reasons are now clear. There has been spirited protest from the Christian/conservative right. Perhaps more significantly, Judiciary Democrats are reluctant to publicly defend the special rights and protections the hate bill grants not only to pedophilia but 546 other sexual deviancies. This conflict has powerfully slowed the momentum of S. 909. Lovers of freedom must explore its potential to destroy the hate bill completely!
Judiciary Democrats most fear Rep. Steve King’s proposal to name a category of sexual deviants and exclude them from preferential treatment under the hate bill. If one category is successfully removed by a Republican amendment, then so could a second, third, and many more illegal paraphilias. The whole fabric of the hate bill’s determination to protect all homosexuals would unravel. The hate bill would be gutted.
The list of illegal paraphilias threatened with removal by Republicans is extensive. Here are some examples, specifying the fetishes of such deviants:
Necrophilia - corpses
Nepiophilia - infants
Biastophilia - assault and rape
Erotophonophilia - murder
Entomophilia - small animals, including insects
Zoosadism - causing pain to animals
Urophilia- urinating in public
Sadism - causing pain to others
Exhibitionism - exposing oneself sexually to others
Frotteurism - rubbing against a non-consenting person
Men, rather than women, are primarily attracted to such deviancies. Homosexual men are most likely to branch into these perversions and hundreds more in their desire for increasingly perverse stimulation. Of all paraphilias, pedophilia is arguably the worst. In a recent radio interview, Jack McLamb (most highly decorated police officer in Phoenix, Arizona history) described to me the many times he has carried little boys and girls to the emergency room to be sewn up after being raped by pedophiles. He says the average pedophile successfully rapes 100 children before he is finally caught.
Rep. Alcee Hastings says the supposed danger posed by any group of sexual deviants is loudly exaggerated by Republicans, and he mocked Republican attempts to exclude them. He asserted that sexual deviants should be protected as harmless people free to express their sexuality as they see fit. If the hate bill is passed, he said, pedophiles will "no longer have to live in fear because of who they are." By agreeing that pedophiles should not be specifically excluded, Senate Judiciary Democrats agree with Hastings’ perverse and outrageous claims!
As I stated in my previous article "Is the Hate Bill in Trouble?" May 21, 2009, the only way forward for Judiciary Democrats may be to boldly propose their own broad amendment stipulating that no illegal paraphilias will be protected. They will be careful not to name any specific paraphilia. Such an amendment would be a fraud, contradicting the bill's broad provision of general "sacred cow" status to all homosexuals. Even worse, S. 909 would give homosexual pedophiles special entitlement to preliminary police and justice system rights and services if the pedophile screamed "Hate crime!" after an irate parent defended their son or daughter from rape.
Nevertheless, accompanied by very rapid movement of the hate bill through the Senate, this subterfuge could be successful. If Democrats do adopt such an amendment, then no matter how fast the hate bill shoots forward, we must protest even faster. At that time, we'll have to overwhelm the Senate, telling members not to believe any amendment denying that the hate bill protects pedophiles. It does! It gives them preferential rights and services, especially if they claim to be victims of a hate crime.
Senate Judiciary Democrats are stalling in hope that protest from the conservative right will decline. Democrats may be willing to wait a long time. Four years ago, they waited nine months for controversy to die down before suddenly passing the hate bill in the House in only 45 minutes! We cannot give them hope by letting up on protest.
Call all members of the Senate and demand hearings on S. 909. Call repeatedly (every other day), especially the crucial 19 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The names are available here on the action page at www.truthtellers.org. Tell the Senator: "Please hold hearings on the pedophile-protecting hate bill S. 909. If the Senator votes for this bill, my friends and I will never forgive or forget." Also, encourage staffers to watch NPN's alarming video "Stop the Pedophile-Protecting Hate Bill" on the home page at www.truthtellers.org.
Possible Senate hate bill hearings will be the most dangerous moment in hate bill passage thus far. If we continue to protest now, there is still a chance they will never be held and S. 909 will die in committee.
The term "sexual orientation" (contrived by the Anti-Defamation League) covers every sexual perversion known to depraved humanity. We must persuade Democrats that its inclusion as a defining concept in any legislation (including the upcoming Employment Non-Discrimination Act, ENDA) is going to result in massive opposition. The term is bankrupt; it cannot be clearly defined and is constitutionally indefensible. The best course of action for Judiciary Democrats is to give up trying to make "sexual orientation" viable and abandon the hate bill which coheres around it.
The federal hate bill is the flagship of the “Obama Armada” of similar freedom-stealing anti-Christian legislation to come. Evidence that all is not well with the hate bill should encourage us more than ever to call repeatedly and finish it off. If the hate bill goes down, we may well (as in the previous Congress) bring legislative disaster to a host of Orwellian bills.
