Conyers Introduces
New Hate Bill!

By Rev Ted Pike
21 Mar 2007

Last month I warned that Rep. John Conyers, head of the House Judiciary Committee, might be using the federal "anti-hate" bill H.R. 254 as a decoy, soaking up most opposition from the political and religious right. Then, with opposition largely exhausted, he would slip in another hate bill, a longer and more dangerous one, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (LLEHCPA), H.R. 1592. (That same bill passed the House overwhelmingly in 2005.) Conyers’ strategy is to send a new hate bill to the floor of the House free of any criticism attached to it ... a bill of which busy and distracted House members might not be suspicious.
Well, it’s happening. The Anti-Defamation League announced yesterday arrival of LLEHCPA in House Judiciary. They strongly recommend it pass in order to end violent hate crimes in America.
H.R. 254, “David’s Law,” remains in the House Judiciary where it will probably die. But LLEHCPA will undoubtedly be on the fast track through the Subcommittee on Crime and the Judiciary Committee and onto the floor of the House. Since LLEHCPA passed the house 1-1/2 years ago, according to the House rules, no more deliberation is required. It could emerge from the Subcommittees on Crime and Judiciary after a mere voice vote. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is empowered to bring it to a vote in the House, even before other bills on the docket.
This is the decisive moment of which I have warned, when every patriot must once again protest as loudly as possible. Conyers is indeed pulling his "fast one." We must react as quickly!
Here is how to stop Conyers and his hate bill:

1. Come to for the list of the 40 members of
  the House Judiciary Committee. Call each toll-free at 1-877-851-6437. Tell them: "Please don’t vote for Rep. Conyers' hate crimes bill, H.R. 1592. Hate laws have taken away free speech in Canadaand many European countries."


Call the House member from your district and give the same

  message. Fax, email, or mail my hate crimes flyer, “Anti-Hate Laws will make you a Criminal,” to your member of Congress and their 8-10 influential legislative aides (available at

We have defeated ADL’s federal hate bills three times in the last two years, but only because thousands of Americans overcame lethargy and defeatism and let Congress know of their outrage. Now is the time to do it again!
