Viral marketing is a growing ad technique that relies on people passing a message on to their friends and acquaintances. The UK pro-hate law ad campaign dramatizes hate crimes such as the killing of a black British teen in 1993. The work of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust, its two-minute viral ads tell “animated versions of real-life stories involving homophobia, Islamaphobia and anti-semitism in the UK.”
If the pro-hate bill forces are going viral, lovers of freedom need to be just as assertive. Now more than ever, we must know the truth about hate crime laws, and find creative ways to shout it out.
It’s not about Bill O’Reilly or white racism!
The problem of hate and racism is said to be a problem of “Islamophobia,” “anti-Semitism,” homophobia, and hatred of blacks. Hypocritically, hate law advocates never mention bias against Christians, whites, or heterosexual marriage. Conservative political speech is constantly blamed for the “epidemic” of hate crimes. Yet violent bias-motivated crimes, as they do exist, don't need to be criminalized (they're already illegal) and they aren't mainly committed by whites or people who watch the O’Reilly Factor.
In July, hate crimes in LA were reported at a five-year high. Most were minority-on-minority, street warfare. LA Times said, “The largest number [of crimes] involved Latino suspects against black victims; the second largest involved black suspects against Latino victims.” Even the Southern Poverty Law Center admitted, in its Winter Report 2008, “Officials cited racially motivated violence committed by race-based street gangs as "a major factor" in the spike in reported hate crimes.” (emphasis mine) SPLC quotes the sheriff, “Latino gang members shoot blacks not because they're members of a rival gang but because of their skin color…”
These violent crimes are already manifestly illegal. Hate crime laws threaten to criminalize bias and belief rather than the violent act itself. That will lead, as it has in Canada, to indictments of legitimate, nonviolent political commentators, magazines, or organizations. And how will it even help? Will we solve gang race wars by controlling what’s said on Fox News? A Latino leader, commenting on recent crime, says, “These recent deaths are a direct outcome of the anger and hatred spurred on by people who mischaracterize all Latinos and the institutions that serve them as a threat to our country…” That’s just one example. Google any recent “hate crime” and you can find a minority leader spouting the same rhetoric, blaming ideas (anti-immigration ideas, in this case) he or she dislikes for fermenting violence. Natural conclusion? Ban ideas. And we should all know by now where that leads. (The word “gulag” springs to mind…)
Hate crime laws will be used to silence politically incorrect thinkers and public leaders. In other words, laws enacted to deal with street race wars (allegedly to combat the bad attitudes of thugs on the street) will be used by political elite to silence their competitors.
Can you really believe gang members learn their hatred at the feet of Bill O’Reilly? Thugs high on dope playing Grand Theft Auto absorb their alleged racism from anti-immigration philosophy on the internet? Yeah…and I’m Elvis.
The Real Agenda
In a curious through-the-looking-glass way, the battle over hate crime laws is actually very much like a refined version of LA race wars. It’s a turf war.
Jewish supremacist organizations—primarily the ADL, SPLC and others—want to silence their main competitor in the ideological battle: Christianity. Hate crime laws are a means to that end. More subtle than a Ka-bar or a semi-automatic, hate crime laws are weapons. They are designed to end the intellectual lives of those who oppose the “gang” of Jewish elites who are quickly accumulating power in our nation.
Fact: the SPLC counts our organization, National Prayer Network, as one of their 924 “active hate groups” because we theorize and write about the actions of the Jewish state and Jewish American elites who want to subvert American (especially Christian) freedom. We have never, and will never, advocate violence. We educate. Yet we are classified with skinhead organizations and the Ku Klux Klan.
Freedom needs to go viral!
Today virtually everyone believes “hate crime” is a real category and definitely bad thing. Google hate crime news and you’ll find daily new articles about hate crimes. Hate law proponents have had dazzling success marketing their ridiculous and dangerous lies. The campaign to resist a federal hate law must be at least as strong as the campaign to support it. If you’re reading this article, you know hate crime laws are a deadly threat to American freedom. You also have unique skills and unique access to the people in your life and in your state.
We need viral marketing against hate laws and for freedom. We need the message to spread, now.
If President Bush hadn’t threatened a veto, we would probably already have an enhanced federal “anti-hate” bill. How does our next president feel about the federal freedom-stealing bill, the Local Law Enforcement Enhancement Act? Barack Obama cosponsored it! We can hardly look to the White House. Let’s look to the street.
What Can You Do?
Check out my article, “Top 11 Reasons You Should Oppose Hate Crime Laws.”Also, Google features Rev. Ted Pike's definitive video, Hate Laws: Making Criminals of Christians. Then think about how you can raise your voice to spread this message.
YouTube currently hosts videos from our organization, Repent America, Coral Ridge Ministries, Rod Parsley and the Family Research Council. This ten-minute film shows the story of a UK couple who were threatened by police merely for asking to be able to distribute religious flyers against homosexuality. They challenged their local government via the Christian Institute and won an apology. But these are just a handful of videos, with not enough hits. Look up “hate crime” on YouTube and you hit dozens and dozens of videos promoting the concept of hate crime laws and dramatizing individual “hate crime” incidents.
What can you do to help the truth about hate laws go viral? Are you good with photos, videos, ads? Pray and think about it. Send our articles to everyone in your Facebook, Myspace, and email accounts! I believe there is something you can do, and God can show you what that is. Your freedom is at stake.
This New Year, a stronger movement of truth is the gift our nation desperately needs.
