Protest Hate Bill

Rev. Ted Pike
20 May 2009

In a recent FOX news interview, Rep. Steve King said the most effective way to protest federal hate bill S. 909 is to call the US Senate, particularly the 19 members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Why don’t major religious right groups follow his advice? They only encourage listeners to use emails, faxes, online petitions, and form letters—no one recommends simple, old-fashioned, but effective phone calls! Modern lobbyist theory says most people are too busy, lazy, or timid to pick up the phone and interact with a staff member in Congress. They are told to type their names into some electronic media; it salves their conscience and might do some good.
But ask any staffer in Washington if his boss takes such protest very seriously. He doesn’t. Staffers will tell you that a personal phone call is effective and respected, second only to showing up in person.
I deeply appreciate the motive behind the campaign by Janet Porter and WorldNetDaily to FedEx some 400,000 form letters to the Senate. But they should know that the impact may not be as great as they hope. In Congress, non-constituent letters are burned. Yes, federal law requires senatorial staff to read constituent mail. And, yes, WND has photos of boxes of letters stacked in the Senate mailroom. Yet, will liberal staffers sift through all those boxes to find the one that contains a constituent letter? Dream on. You can be sure that liberal Senators, having caught on to this strategy, are ordering these boxes automatically returned to the mailroom, then to be dumped.
Why do WND and other new right organizations not follow the advice of a real expert on the receiving end of legislative protest—Rep. King? Why don’t they simply give out phone numbers of the Senate and names of Senate Judiciary members? I don’t know. There are many things about the religious right which baffle me.
I do know that our NPN poll today shows that calls to the Senate Judiciary, exactly what King encourages, are declining. At 4 p.m. EDT, the office of Sen. Orrin Hatch, the most outspoken and articulate Senate Judiciary opponent to the hate bill, told me they had received only five calls all day. Mine was the sixth.
Call the Senate Judiciary Committee and your members of the Senate at 877-851-6437 toll free or 202-225-3121 toll. Tell them: "If the Senator votes for the pedophile-protecting hate bill, I and my friends will never forgive or forget."

Fox News Rips "Pedophile-Protecting" Hate Bill:

...[Fox News anchor Megyn] Kelly interviewed Rep. Steve King, who attempted to amend the hate bill in Judiciary last week to explicitly exclude pedophiles. King reported how Rep. Alcee Hastings, a pro-hate bill Democrat, proudly claimed practitioners of 547 paraphilias listed by the American Psychiatric Association can "live without fear" once the hate bill is passed.
Ms. Kelly also expressed indignation that, while the Democrats acted to protect pedophiles, they rejected Republican efforts to obtain similar special protection for war veterans. Especially in times of unpopular wars, these are common victims of "hate crimes," spit upon or attacked because of who they are -- military defenders of America's freedom...

Alert to Congress Regarding Hate Bills and the False Flag Attack Threat by America First Books publisher William B. Fox. Two-thirds down the web page please find the essay "The Hate Crime Law Concept: It is all very sinister for at least nine major reasons."
Also, earlier on this same page I comment:

Although Rev Ted Pike is completely independent from Captain May and myself in terms of his political and religious views, the threats we address all stem from the same corrupt power elite. I mention in my concluding remarks below that this elite “would mobilize us into domestic tyranny and foreign wars, while distracting us from economic depression and the groups that brought it about.”
This is the real problem, not the lack of more “hate crime” laws. If anything, we need even more freedom of speech to speak truth to power, sort out our problems, and develop peaceful strategies to handle high level malefactors. This is why we urgently need for members of Congress to not only take a principled stand and stop all hate crime legislative initiatives, but to also roll back all the existing hate crime laws currently on the books.

Hate crime laws actually pose a major national security threat. They condition Americans to feel that certain types of thought are inherently immoral or illegal, even if they do not result in any form of violence or infringement on the rights of others.
In our articles related to false flag attacks, Capt. Eric H. May and I have discussed strong evidence that Mossad-CIA was behind 9-11, the mere "thought" of which would some day be outlawed once hate crime oversight bureaucracies become firmly implanted in America. We can expect government hate crime overwatch entities to experience the usual cancerous growth and abuse of power that libertarian writer and Presidential candidate Harry Browne described in his classic book Why Government Doesn't Work.
