Hate Crime is an excuse to seize power

Hate Crime is an excuse to seize power

Following up on last week’s “boogyman” inspired A history of hate speech, we encounter a current example of centralization of government via fearmongering. Harmless enough in name. the COVID–19 Hate Crimes Act allows the federal government to hijack any race related case they choose(7,8).

In addition to having first dibs on cases – because you can’t leave it to the state to deliver the “right” verdict – there will be a massive increase in general oversight.

The very premise of a hate campaign against Asians rests on dubious evidence. A widely circulated study from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism (CSHE) showed the United States dropped 7 percent in hate crimes between 2019 and 2020. Not to admit progress of any sort, certain quarters fixated on the jump from 49 to 122 anti-Asian hate crimes. While 150 percent is a large number, that sample size is inadequate to satisfy any standards for generalization.

Just as fear of communism and Nazism prompted both successful and unsuccessful attempts to limit speech, the consternation of a hysterical society has opened the door to centralization – with no debate or even a whisper of criticism.

    Sooner or later it will be a hate crime to fart while driving through a minority neighborhood

    Agree. Really, when you boil it down, aren’t almost all crimes actually ‘hate crimes’.

    It’s always good after being slammed for an article to double down, write another, and note it as a follow up rather that respond the the first f…. up.

    Actually, in this case, “hate crime” is being used as a legal term If it’s a legal term, and if you use the legal definition: no, almost all crimes are not hate crimes.

    Heaven forbid we go after crime from a Federal Level. We could have solved the KKK problem with the State Police from Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, etc. That’s laughable.

    Now I know you don’t believe the FBI, but they believe there is hate crime and for 2019 it was:
    Race/Ethnicity/Ancestry/Bias 57.6%
    Religion 20.1%
    Sexual Orientation 16.7%
    Gender Identity 2.7%
    Disability 2.0%

    Totals were 7,036 and 7,103 – not up, but not down either.

    And who got convicted:
    52.5% were White
    23.9% were Black or African American
    14.6% race unknown

    Gender 0.9%

    It can be found on the FBI Hate Crime Statistics page.

    It must be a terrible thing given a Senate passage of 95 to 1, the one being Republican Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri which makes sense given his part in the January 6th insurrection of the U.S Capitol, the center and most revered building in our Republic, on behalf of Donald J. Trump by his faithful followers like Hawley. Can’t wait to hear those phone tapes….

    Then the House passed it overwhelmingly by 364 to 62; the losers being all Republicans. The losers, who lost at a 5:1 rout, the losers also voted against 50 of the winners from their own party, so they did get a majority there. Of Republican house members that is. Of Americans, not even close. I don’t even think they got a clear majority of Republican voters on this one.

    But keep the faith, turn up the volume, this one is law, you can always try the Supremes. Or repeal it, like ObamaCare.

      People usually don’t commit crimes against people that they like. Dumbass Didn’t mad Maxine Waters instruct her leftist commie crowd to get in our faces? I checked with my lawyer neighbor. He said that it’s probably stalking.
