HR 1592: Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2007 [USA]

To my friends and brothers and sisters in Christ in the USA, you have one very dangerous piece of legislation on the table in your Congress at present

I happened to see an article on WorldNetDaily on this and decided to check it out for myself. The wording of the bill can hardly be called specific when you see wording such as this:

From Sec. 4. :

SEC. 4. SUPPORT FOR CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS AND PROSECUTIONS BY STATE, LOCAL, AND TRIBAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS.

(a) Assistance Other Than Financial Assistance-

(1) IN GENERAL- At the request of State, local, or Tribal law enforcement agency, the Attorney General may provide technical, forensic, prosecutorial, or any other form of assistance in the criminal investigation or prosecution of any crime that–

(A) constitutes a crime of violence;

(B) constitutes a felony under the State, local, or Tribal laws; and

(C) is motivated by prejudice based on the actual or perceived race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of the victim, or is a violation of the State, local, or Tribal hate crime laws.

Note the use of the phrase “actual or perceived“. This is very dangerous, as it opens anyone up to being prosecuted and gaoled for a perceived rather than an actual crime! Actually, I noted that the word ‘perceived’ is used quite liberally in the whole document.

I see this, as much as anything, as a spiritual attack by our enemy Satan. You all would have noticed that this kind of thing has very much increased in intensity in the last few years. We are awash in attempts to make evil good and good evil, and when you consider that Christianity is being made to appear to the foolish that it is made up of whackos and weirdos, and that evil practices of all stripes are being marketed to us daily in the media, it is quite evident what is going on. Our Lord, being righteous and holy cannot hold off forever on judging all our western countries for the wholesale flow of evil. Thanks to Him that He is also merciful and not willing that any should perish.

I hope to see many of you posting on this and alerting your fellow bloggers and citizens to this deliberate attempt to silence and criminalize true Christianity.

Ham Sandwich Dhimmitude

It’s rather ironic that I should post on this after my previous post on the death of common-sense.

I find myself shaking my head in sheer mental boggling every few minutes…

Excerpts:

A middle school student in Lewiston, Maine is being investigated by the police for a possible hate crime after he placed a bag containing a ham sandwich on a table where Somali students eat lunch.

According to Superintendent Levesque, “the school incident is being treated seriously as a hate incident.” Police are currently investigating the matter alongside the Center for the Prevention of Hate Violence, who is also working with the school to create an anti-ham “response plan.”

“We’ve got some work to do to turn this around and bring the school community back together again.” Said Levesque, “These children have got to learn that ham is not a toy, and that there are consequences for being nonchalant about where you put your sandwich.”

“Placing ham where Muslim students were eating as an awful thing,” said Stephen Wessler, the executive director of the Center for Prevention of Hate Violence. “It’s extraordinarily hurtful and degrading. They probably felt like they were back in Mogadishu starving and being shot at. No child, Muslim or normal, should have to endure touching a ham sandwich.”

Wessler continued, “incidents like this that involve degrading language or conduct are often said by the perpetrator as a joke. But unfortunately we don’t live in a world where young children try to be funny, we live in a society in which these types of actions always escalate into violence against minorities.”

“If people think insulting Muslims with ham is okay, more degrading acts will follow. The Jews had to go through the same thing when the Nazis would force-feed them bacon; do we really want our schools to become concentration camps?”

Is this guy serious?? This has to be one of the most incredibly stupid political correctness statements I’ve ever heard!

One of the victims, whose mother didn’t want his name released, said “we didn’t know what was in this bag. One of my friends reached inside it. It was a big ham steak. There were five of us at the table, all Somali. Right then, I could feel allah condemning me to burn for eternity for being within a 6.2 meter radius of ham, so yeah, it was a hate crime.”

The boy said that he felt better after several students apologized for the incident and said that the kids who did it were jerks, “but for the rest of my life when I remember middle school, this will pop up right away,” the boy said, “it’s like I’m back in Somalia being shot at all over again.”

For crying out loud, will these people stop over-reacting to every perceived slight to Muslims! It’s true this kid did behave stupidly, but to take it to this level just shows how much fear people are being programmed to feel about giving offence.

Common Sense: An Obituary

The Death of Common Sense
by An Unknown Author

Today we mourn the passing of an old friend by the name of Common Sense. No one really knows how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He selflessly devoted his life to service in schools, hospitals, homes, factories and offices, helping folks get jobs done without fanfare and foolishness. For decades, petty rules, silly laws and frivolous lawsuits held no power over Common Sense. He was credited with cultivating such valued lessons as: to know when to come in out of the rain, the early bird gets the worm, and life isn’t always fair.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you earn), reliable parenting strategies (adults are in charge, not kids), and adages such as “it’s okay to come in second.” A veteran of the Industrial Revolution, the Great Depression, and the Technological Revolution, Common Sense survived cultural and educational trends including feminism, body piercing, whole language and “new math.”

But his health declined when he became infected with the “if-it-only-helps-one-person-it’s-worth-it” virus. In recent decades his waning strength proved no match for the ravages of overbearing federal regulation. He watched in pain as good people became ruled by self-seeking lawyers and enlightened auditors. His health rapidly deteriorated when schools endlessly implemented zero-tolerance policies, reports made of six-year-old boys charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate, a teen suspended for taking a swig of mouthwash after lunch, and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student. His health declined even further when schools had to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student but cannot inform the parent when the female student is pregnant or wants an abortion. Finally, Common Sense lost his will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became businesses, criminals received better treatment than victims, and federal judges stuck their noses in everything from Boy Scouts to professional sports.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers: Rights, Tolerance and Whiner. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

The day they kicked God out of the schools

I remember an article written by Chuck Missler noting that statistics taken around the 1960s show a marked deterioration of student behaviour over a remarkably short period of time. We in the west who have been remarkably blessed by God because of our Christian roots are now finding out the hard way that allowing our leaders and legislators, our school departments to do this is providing us with foul fruit.

Don’t laugh too hard – one of these kids may be your President someday

The following questions and answers were actually collected from SAT tests given in Springdale, Arkansas in 2000 to 16-year-old students! (Don’t laugh too hard—-one of these kids may be the President someday.)

Even if not true, this is worth posting for the humour value… [grin] – got it from one of my favourite forums. Thanks Maggie.
