Hate Crimes?

As predicted, I have not received a response back from the Akron Police Department. However, this issue has me pondering once again the Hate Crime statues.

I, for one, do not agree with the concept of hate crimes. People are no longer being convicted for the results of their actions, but also for their thoughts behind those actions. This is a frightening and slippery slope to be on. Right now, if we see any hint of religious, racial, sexual, etc as part of a motivation behind a crime, stiffer penalties are imposed. This is absolutely

Take this hypothetical incident. A white woman was raped and murdered as a result of her attacker hating whites. Its still rape as well as murder. It should be treated as such. We as a society should not give any credence to the thought process behind the action, if that thought process was based on hate. If the criminal planned ahead to rape and murder the woman, that's a pre-meditated act, not something "spur of the moment." And there are already stiffer penalties out there because of that. If the murderer just saw her and committed those acts on the "spur" of the moment, well we have penalties for that as well.

However, Hate Crimes are no longer raising their ugly heads on the streets alone; ministers, artists, writers, and talk show hosts are now being accused of such actions. Have they done anything illegal? No, at least not at the moment (but the laws are coming!). However their thought process does not follow the politically correct "party line."

Remember the riots in Amsterdam resulting from a few cartoons? Remember what happened to the cartoonist? What was he accused of? Hate against Islam.

How about in Canada where Christian ministers preached from the bible, not taking any scripture out of context, showing how God views the immoral acts of homosexuality. That preacher was charged with a hate crime.

Radio Host Michael Savage, who has never advocated violence towards anyone, has been grouped together on a list with murderers and terrorists. His crime? Preaching "hate" even though all he has done and is doing, is saying what every American with morals believes. He is speaking out against corruption and against CAIR. As far as the "political elite" are concerned, that is hate.

When the bill was first passed, the public was assured that it would only relate to horrendous crimes committed against another person. But now with the watering down of the definition of "crimes," anyone can be accused of hate.

  • For the record, I know that homosexuality is immoral and wrong.
  • For the record, I know that Islam is more of a conquering philosophy then a religion, and that its followers (the so called "extremists") seek death rather then life.
  • For the record, I know that abortion at any stage is wrong.
  • For the record, I support Israel.
  • For the record, I know that Obama and his socialists liberal cohorts are ruining this country.
  • For the record, I know that Affirmative Action should be abolished. It is a very racist policy. People should be promoted and rewarded for their honesty, skills, dedication and professionalism. They should not be promoted or hired just so some government quotas can be filled.
  • I know for a fact that illegal immigration is very wrong,and that we should tighten up our borders.

Well, according to the Politically Correct, I am guilty of hate crimes. I am a thought criminal. You might as well come and arrest me now, as I'm not about to change my beliefs. As a matter of fact, I proudly stand behind those core beliefs and morals!

So my question to you is this, are you also a thought criminal?

American Workers can breath a sigh of relief, as for once our politicians are listening to us all? Well! Not quite? They have instituted E-Verify, the illegal worker extraction process from the workplace? BUT TELL ME WHY IT DOESN'T COVER EVERYBODY WHO COLLECTS A PAYROLL CHECK? Not just the new arrival workers, but everybody who works for the company? American citizens and legal residents, don't care about checking their identity, unless they have something to hide? But E-Verify will trap illegal trap people offering illegal Social Security Numbers and bogus ID papers. What's significant is that E-Verify is not in stasis, but being upgraded, modified all the time. All irregularities can be checked out at the Social Security office. Not a good place where illegal workers would enter. Almost every law on the books that includes 287(g) for local enforcement is always weakened or even snuffed out by political conspirators. Any activist knows whose behind annulling the 287(g) police questioning, arrest and detain of illegal aliens? Our lady at the Homeland Security office, Madam Janet Napolitano. She keeps opening her mouth and with a forked tongue, swears she adamantly supported E-Verify and other programs, while secretly she and her minions underfund working laws, just as she did when she was governor of Arizona?

If it really is being made MANDATORY for all federal employees and contractors? What reason are they arguing that it shouldn't be MANDATORY in every business throughout America? Every patriotic employer should use the E-Verification process? Unfortunately it's still voluntary for the public sector, which I am sure has been strongly influenced by US Chamber of Commerce, ACLU, Cato Institute and Council of Foreign Relations. Please don't take my word for the ominous agendas of these organizations? Allow yourself to--GOOGLE-- the rancid truth by surfing the Internet about these outfits? These are all anti-sovereignty, pro-illegal--CHEAP LABOR ENTITIES. They refuse any restrictions of any--REAL BORDER ENFORCEMENT?

The next step is to push our SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN to implement rigid INTERIOR ENFORCEMENT. An army of E-Verify federal inspectors to make unannounced visits to Human Resources, stores, factories, industry, businesses with a general warrant to audit books around the country. This would certainly
be a parasite employers nightmare and hold their feet to the proverbial fire. Those who consider hiring illegal cheap labor will instantly condemn themselves to heavy fine, confiscation of business asset and even a prison term if caught with the undocumented labor.

Always the ACLU, the subversive La Raza (THE RACE) is up front with filing lawsuits, against any town that considers ordinances to stop illegal immigrants from settling there. These are--ALL OPEN BORDER ZEALOTS--Brought and paid for by corporate money. If we didn't have sincere patriotic Senators like Sessions, E-Verify would have been tabled and hidden away from public view. Outside of the main Washington political elitists, very few listen to the voices of the American Worker who every day compete for jobs that foreign labor steal. My guess is the Democrats have allowed the authorization of a permanent E-Verify, knowing full well the Chuck Schumer Immigration Reform--BLANKET AMNESTY will make it worthless tool anyway?

Giving 13 to 20 million plus families who rely heavily on government benefits will bankrupt America, according to the estimate of 2.5 Trillion dollars, Robert Rector at the Heritage Foundation. Then their is the next tsunami of poor people expecting to benefit from a further Amnesty, waiting patiently in other impoverished societies around the earth. CALL YOUR POLITICIAN DEMANDING A MANDATED E-VERIFY, NO AMNESTY! 202-224-3121. Honest facts at NUMBERSUSA, CAPSWEB, AMERICANPATROL & FAIR. ANOTHER AMNESTY WILL LEAD TO IRREVERSIBLE OVERPOPULATION! IF YOU SEE SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY CALL ICE.
