Hate-crime laws redundant

  • Follow Letters

Why was Paine College wasting time and money on a “hate crimes” seminar this month? Laws already are in place regarding murder, assault, harassment, etc.

Why do minority groups want a redundant law just for them?

Spot on!

All hate crime laws are redundant. Another ridiculous layer of law piled on by our liberal friends. Careful, the thought police are reading your posts... If the "progressives" had their way, merely having negative thoughts about others or their ideas would be criminal.

It's Bad To Kill Somebody...

...but it's weally, weally bad if they are of a protected group and you aren't.

Does that make ANY sense?

Of course not, that's why liberals came up with the idea.

Equality?

It isn't about equality any more. It's about "Special treatment".

Bulldog, if it is criminal to have negative thoughts about others then why aren't all progressives in prison?

"Why do minority groups want

"Why do minority groups want a redundant law just for them?"

Well, the liberals figured it was just the next logical step in the "total life support" for "special" people agenda. You know, the "special" people that the liberals have determined are incapable of making it on their own and must be cuddled, and coddled, in the warm protecting arms of the givermint. Free food, free housing, free health care, free cell phones, and........and......what else can we do for them. Oh yeh, give them "special" protection under the law. I'm just surprised they haven't come up with a free ObamaEscalade and a free ObamaFlatScreenTV program.

There are no true "hate" crimes.

All crimes against individuals are "hate" crimes. There is no actual need to peel more layers from that onion.

The concept is just another "progressive" diversion. Just one more weapon in their arsenal to confuse and confound the general public while they go about radicalizing and "fundamentally changing" the American landscape.

When the Founders included the phrase "defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic" in governmental oaths, this current crop of home-grown radicals is a prime example of their foresight.

Interesting though, is the fact that no crime against a conservative with an Anglo-Saxon Christian background can ever be considered in "hate" crime in the liberal/progressive/Democrat lexicon.

It seems that white Christians are the only group in America on which there is an open season for hate and discrimination.

Paine just always figures out a way to spend money that they

don't have. Their board should hold them to fire and micromanage any expenditures that Pres and Brandon try to make!

Some of the Paine folks will call me a racist for some reason or another but I want them to succeed. Their financial management of late has caused them a lot of problems.

They will fall it they don't do a better job with finances.

I also loved to watch Boggs Academy down in Keysville. It was a great place started in 1906 as a place for blacks to have access to secondary education. It was sad when it was closed in 1984 because I'm sure it was a good educational experience for many.
