LEAHY’S HATE BILL HEARING A SHAM 26 June 09 reports:
Today Sen. Patrick Leahy delivered on his promise to hold a federal hate bill hearing. Yet it was meant to only further his agenda, strongly slanted against opponents of the hate bill.
Attorney Gen. Eric Holder and three other hate bill witnesses chosen by Leahy had a four-to-two advantage over opponents of S. 909…Leahy’s time restrictions (little more than two hours) forced these outnumbered patriots, led by the excellent arguments of Sen. Jeff Sessions, to severely narrow their objections. An issue of such danger and complication demands at least three days of hearings, with more than just two witnesses permitted to object!
Holder’s testimony and questions lasted 75 minutes. In any normal environment his rigid and flat-footed performance would have to be deemed a disaster. As Pike notes:
Under questioning, Attorney Gen. Holder was surprisingly forthright in admitting that the hate bill is not intended to protect everyone, or even the majority. He said only historically oppressed minorities were to benefit. This means Jews, blacks, homosexuals, women, etc. Holder made it clear that if a white Christian male, including a serviceman or police officer, was the victim of a violent hate crime by any minority he would have to find redress from traditional law. He could not avail himself of the triple penalties and rapid government/justice system response given a protected minority.
These catastrophic admissions were extracted by Senators Sessions (R-AL) and Coburn (R-OK). The webcast of the Hearings is here (on right) and the relevant passages are 59-61 minutes (Sessions) and 72-5 minutes (Coburn).
All those conservative Christians who engaged in the ridiculous PC non-sense of referring to muslim terrorists as "Islamo-fascists" (and other such terms), instead of simply, muslims, are about to come to terms with what they were proliferating.
By not simply referring to them as muslims, but making allusions to "fanatics" and "extremists", the conservative-Christian has set down the ground work for their own, soon to be, persecution and prosecution as "extremists" and "fanatics".
But then the conservative-Christian has been doing this for years in denouncing their own people, their own Christian forebearers, as "racists" and "mass murders".
Instead of constructing a defence on the part of their forebearers, the conservative Christian simply cast them under the historical bus and denounced them for behaving "unChristian-like".Now the conservative-Christian is having the same thing done to themselves.
Political Correctness is the guillotine of Western Civilization and Christianity.
For the past several decades conservative-Christians have been helping to build the damn thing thinking it was to used on the "bad guys".
Now they find out it is for them.
The beliefs of today's conservatives, Christian or not, are completely removed from the traditional beliefs of the people who built our civilization.
Believing in such non-sense as racial or gender equality is to embrace the people who first propagated such garbage in the modern age, Marxists.
Terms like "racism" and concepts such as "equality", "tolerance" and "diversity" came straight out of the anti-Christian, anti-Conservative, anti-Western Soviet Union.
Christians today, even conservative evangelical Christians, seem oblivious to the fact that their brand new, a-hisotrical, interpretation of scriptures just happen to fit comfortably with the philosophy of people who have openly and loudly proclaimed themselves the enemy of Christ.
