We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Good old Moonbattery informed us about HR 254, sponsored by the esteemed Shirley Jackson-Lee. HR 254 proposes to create federal "hate crimes."
HR 254 is creepy. The bill fits right in with the Cultural Marxism piece posted yesterday.
What makes it worse to assault someone for their sexual proclivities than to assault someone just because you hate their guts? The proposed bill, as Moonbattery points out, could be extended to "hate speech" laws, such as they endure in Europe.
For the record, we hate this bill, and we hate the perennially enraged Shirley for having the horrible, oppressive, and idiotic idea. Furthermore, we will hate anything and anybody we feel like, and we will happily say so until someone hauls us off for regrooving.
