The Democrats will have their way, no matter what it takes. If you don't like what they propose, they'll change its name and say it is something different. If they still can't get something through Congress, they slip it into a totally unrelated bill, and get it passed without anyone knowing what hit them. In other words, whether you like it or not, if the left supports something, they'll find a way to force it upon you.
After all, it's not like Congress reads the bills they vote for, or anything.
After years of failing to become law, hate crimes legislation has finally come to America, by being slipped into the language of a defense spending bill. Obama signed the defense authorization bill, that also includes cutting funding on critical defense projects, on Wednesday.
The "hate crimes" provision is specifically Obama's way of sucking up to the gay crowd that has been so pissed off at him since he hasn't done a thing for them he's promised. Now, with the "hate crimes" provision passed, homosexuals and transgender folks will receive preferential treatment, giving them unprecedented legal avenues against "breeders."
This "hate crimes" legislation does not at this point contain provisions that are contained in hate crimes laws in other countries, but as has in the other countries, it won't take long for the legislation to evolve into anti-straight, anti-Christian laws that are used readily to silence anyone who dares oppose the immoral lifestyle.
As it stands now, if you were to get in a fight with someone, and it turned out they were gay, you could be in for some serious jail time. However, if a mob of gays jumped you and beat you to a pulp, they would be safe, because hate crimes legislation does not apply to them.
And thanks to this new hate crimes provision, in the near future it will become possible for your pastor to be arrested for preaching homosexuality is a sin, and the Bible could be outlawed for containing anti-gay text within it.
Of course we must be tolerant of Muslims who hang gays by the neck - or at least that is what the hard left tells us.
Interestingly, the bill is being considered by gays as being a step in the direction of "equality for all."
Isn't that something? If one decides to have a homosexual behavioral fetish, suddenly they can do just about anything to anyone, and if the other person dares to retaliate, all the gay has to do is scream "hate crime," and the other person is suddenly labeled a criminal.
Heck, what's next? Redefining traditional sanctitites for their own purposes, regardless of who they are stepping all over to do so?
