LET'S KILL THE HATE BILL
IN HOUSE JUDICIARY!


By Rev. Ted Pike
30 Jan 2007

Last Friday, appointments to the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terror, and Homeland Security were finalized. Consideration of the federal hate crimes bill (H.R. 254) now goes forward in this committee.
Because the hate bill was passed by the House in 2005, the subcommittee on crime is entitled to move it out of committee by a simple "yes" or "no" vote without deliberation. It would then go to the House Judiciary Committee, which could deal with it in the same way and send it to a full vote in the House.
Several weeks ago we saw the determination of Democrats to pass grassroots-crushing Section 220 of the lobby reform bill. They would not allow Republicans to present Sen. Bennett's amendment which called for a vote to strip it off. Fortunately, Republicans, bolstered by many thousands of calls critical of Section 220, held their ground. They denied the bullying Democrats the 60 votes necessary to pass the lobby reform bill, including Sec. 220. Only as a result of such pressure were the Democrats stopped. Reluctantly, they sacrificed Sec. 220 in order to pass the general lobby reform bill, S.1.
.But Democrats are much more determined to pass the ADL-designed federal hate bill. They have been defeated six times since 1998 but now command a majority of votes in the House and are just six votes shy of the 60 needed in the Senate. They are also encouraged by appointment to head of the House Judiciary of veteran hate bill promoter Rep. John Conyers Jr. (Democrat).
Republican resistance to the hate bill still exists throughout the House Judiciary and its subcommittee. If these Republicans are encouraged by an avalanche of mail and phone calls against the hate bill, there is an excellent chance they will act as they have before: providing obstacles to rapid movement of the hate bill through Judiciary.
Here's what each of us must do immediately to slow down and hopefully kill the hate bill before it reaches the floor of the House:

1. Since the entire House Judiciary Committee will determine the
  future of the hate bill, every member must be called immediately. Come to www.truthtellers.org for the entire list of 40. Call 1-877-851-6437 saying, "Please don't vote for the David Ray Hate Crimes Prevention Act, H.R. 254. Hate laws have taken away free speech in Canada and many European countries."
2 For those passionate to preserve free speech in America, there is
  more you can do. Churches and conservative groups, especially, can create committees to flood with flyers not only all members of the House Judiciary Committee but also their highly influential legislative aides. At truthtellers.org are listed 8 to 10 of each member's most important aides. The total number of members and aides is thus about 320. Form a mailing committee of 10 and each member sends only 32 letters! Send in one envelope my two powerful brochures, "Anti-Hate Laws Will Make You a Criminal" and "Lobby Reform Bill: Attack on Grassroots Freedom."

Why include the lobby reform flyer? Sec. 220, though recently rejected by the Senate, will doubtless be reintroduced by Pelosi in the House. Since it did not pass the House last year, it must be deliberated in the House Judiciary Committee. We have to prejudice Judiciary members and their staff against both the hate bill and Sec. 220 before this legislation is actively considered. Here is our ultimate objective: We want to make the hate bill and Sec. 220 so public and well understood that this "stealth legislation" can no longer move forward under the radar of public scrutiny. Politicians dread highly controversial legislation which polarizes their constituents. If a politician votes with one faction, the other is offended and may not reelect him. The more debated and high profile a piece of legislation becomes, the higher the chance that Congress will favor its early death in committee.
In my hate laws flyer, I identify the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith as architect of hate laws worldwide. This is to make ADL so odious to members of Congress that they will be reluctant to advocate or pass ADL-inspired legislation. Alienating members of Congress from ADL hate laws is a powerful first step toward also distancing them from obedience to Israel lobby and AIPAC, with its war-making Mideast agenda.
A flood of calls to the House Judiciary and all members of Congress, but particularly the House at this crucial time, will alert Capitol Hill to mounting grassroots rebellion against Zionist supremacism. Your calls assure politicians that they will be applauded, not ruined, if they defy ADL and the Zionist lobby.
Each of us has power to hasten the funeral of H.R. 254, Sec. 220, and ADL. Every phone call and flyer is a nail hammered into their coffins. If enough truth goes into Congress, exploding the myth and misinformation of ADL's Orwellian hate law agenda, then such legislation will not just die in the present session of Congress; it may well never be resurrected. ADL will have to devise an entirely new, diabolical and twisted scheme to take away our freedom. That could take years -- years in which we, our children, and even our grandchildren may still enjoy the gift of liberty which God gives to every creature. This freedom is our right to go where we want, think our own thoughts, speak and make decisions free of government oppression.
How will you respond to hate laws' threat to freedom? Your descendents will bless or curse you according to what you do today.
