Have you ever criticized Islam - perhaps for its militancy or restrictions on women? An increasing number of people in Canada, Europe, and Australia have--thinking they were within their free speech rights. Next thing they knew, a Muslim or local Muslim council hauled them into court on the “hate crimes” charge of defaming Islam. One defendant in England--prominent political leader Nick Griffin--faced a possible seven years in prison for calling Islam a “wicked faith.”
Today, the hate laws the Anti-Defamation League established in Jewish self-interest are being exploited by Muslims. Hate laws are part of ADL's self-protective agenda of discouraging criticism of Jewish matters and Israel. ADL is also intent on restraining the advancement of Christian values, evangelism, and political activism.
But now, Islamic zealots are increasingly ready to use hate laws for their own ends, pouncing on any pastor, talk show host, politician, or outspoken citizen who “defames” Islam. In fact, the 56 Muslim nations that dominate the U.N. Human Rights Council are attempting to force all U.N. member nations to criminalize criticism of Islam through the “Combating Defamation of Religions Resolution.”
In response to the changing, widening threat of hate laws, we have produced another 10-minute video alert, Hate Law Jihad: How Hate Laws Criminalize Islam’s Critics. We reveal stories of people who faced Muslim-backed hate crime lawsuits and indictments. Our video proves that all free thinkers, liberal or conservative, religious or not, are vulnerable to prosecution if a Muslim-protecting federal hate crimes law is established in America.
In fact, Canadian and European hate laws have often been enforced retroactively. If federal hate crimes bill HR 256, now in the House Judiciary Committee, becomes law, we can expect hate crimes indictments against those who “incited violence” against Muslims by criticizing Islamic behavior or doctrine, even if it was years ago! We can also expect special federal protection of Muslims through HR 262’s massive national reeducation program against “bias,” if this becomes law in public schools from kindergarten through college.
Stubborn Silence from Religious Right
It is now 10 weeks since the federal hate crimes bills, HR 256 and HR 262, were introduced in Congress. Yet almost all of the largest Christian/conservative “watchdog” groups (including the American Center for Law and Justice, Focus on the Family, Family Research Council, and Concerned Women for America) have made no effective warnings or calls to action against them. I’ve quit speculating on the reasons for such baffling silence in the face of the most freedom-destroying legislation ever to enter Congress! But our National Prayer Network will never quit doing our best to alert Americans and develop strategies to hold the hate bills back.
I have spoken on 64 talk radio shows since January 1 and saturated the listeners to “far right” alternative talk radio with warnings against the hate bills. I am now pursuing interviews on mainstream talk radio - liberal or conservative. Our new video Hate Law Jihad was created to reach this vast audience. Many people have criticized Islam and should realize they are personally threatened by encroaching hate crimes legislation.
With this audience in mind, we are unveiling our updated website, www.hatelawsexposed.org. It is exclusively dedicated to the hate laws issue and especially emphasizes the threat to critics of radical Islam. All our hate law videos, including Hate Law Jihad, can be viewed on www.hatelawsexposed.org as well as www.truthtellers.org.
Still Time to Save Free Speech
Mercifully, the federal hate bill HR 256 has not yet moved forward into hearings in the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime. God has given us precious time to further educate Congress. It is more important than ever to call the House and Senate - especially the crucial 39 members of the House Judiciary Committee. A relatively small but steady number of calls are still made to Judiciary members. These legislators will decide whether the hate bills die in committee or shoot forward to the House for a vote. I am encouraged by reports from callers that many liberal and conservative Judiciary staffers say they are aware of www.truthtellers.org and have watched How to Kill the Hate Bills.
It's time to encourage staffers to watch Hate Law Jihad at www.truthtellers.org. Expanding knowledge could turn Congress against hate crime laws completely!
I believe protest calls to the Judiciary may have already put brakes on the hate bills. Pro-hate bill Democrats may fear that your daily calls are an omen of more controversy to come and don't want their hate bill humiliated in debate on the floors of Congress and a sixth defeat. Perhaps they realize Americans still don't want a federal hate bureaucracy, and that some other form of legislation should be contrived to achieve police state sovereignty.
We know one thing for sure. To members of Congress, your call stands for a thousand other citizens who feel just like you but don’t have the impetus to act. Members of Congress know this “silent majority” is very capable of voting out them out of office if hate laws become unpopular enough and they vote for them!
Let’s magnify such anxiety in members of Congress. Even if you’ve called the Judiciary members before, call again! Route their staff to Hate Law Jihad, now on the main pages of www.truthtellers.org and www.hatelawsexposed.org.
Call your members of the House and Senate toll free at 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-225-3121. Tell them, “Please don’t vote for any hate crimes legislation. Don’t vote for HR 256 and HR 262. Please watch online the video Hate Law Jihad which shows how Muslim extremists will use a federal hate law to criminalize critics of Islam. It's at www.truthtellers.org."
Members of Congress have criticized Islam more than anyone; in fact, their “hateful” remarks are part of the Congressional record. Let them know--as all Americans should--that the federal hate law they are now considering could, like a cobra released from its cage, turn on them!
Watch the dynamic 10-minute educational video, "How to Kill the Hate Bills" at www.truthtellers.org which explains how the two hate bills, H.R. 256 and H.R. 262, threaten freedom. Please tell the offices of members of Congress to watch it! Also at www.truthtellers.org, watch our gripping 82-minute documentary "Hate Laws: Making Criminals of Christians."
Let the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith teach you how they have saddled 45 states with hate laws capable of persecuting Christians: http://www.adl.org/99hatecrime/intro.asp.
