The highly charged "Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009" (S. 909) would make it a federal crime to violently attack anyone you hate.
Unless, of course, the anyone you hate happens to be a white heterosexual.
In the same NRN piece,
So, let’s get this straight: If Messrs. Obama and [Attorney General Eric] Holder have their way, the United States government – once fondly known as the “government of the people, by the people, and for the people” -- will begin prosecuting some of “the people” and protecting others among “the people” solely based upon said people’s skin color and sexual orientation?
Precisely. For you see, under S. 909, certain members of our society, primarily determined by the color of their skin and the lusts in their hearts, are what Obama and Holder call “protected classes.”
This is *not* a "slippery slope". This is *not* something a bit risky that might lead to something worse. S. 909 is the worse. This is the "divide and conquer" that classic warriors have found so successful.
Call your Senator. Please stop this legalized bigotry. Bigotry didn't strengthen our country before, it isn't likely to this time, either.
What next? Indentured servants - enslavement for non-payment of debts or taxes? Except among the "protected classes", I imagine.
