Democrat Fumbling Gives Hope to Hate Bill Protest

Harmony Grant and Rev. Ted Pike
18 June 2009

It was to be a triumphal moment at the Washington DC press conference Monday afternoon, announcing imminent Senate passage of Sen. Kennedy’s hate bill amendment. The chief pillars of the hate bill were to be there: Michael Lieberman of the Anti-Defamation League (the ADL is chief architect of the federal hate bill and hate crime laws worldwide); fellow Jewish activist Joe Solomonese, head of the Human Rights Campaign, representing the homosexual/pederast lobbies; Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, embodying attempts by the Democrat majority and Obama to make America into a hate crime bureaucracy like Canada’s – ending free speech.
Yet this grand gesture of hate bill ascendance fizzled! Sen. Reid announced that Democrat powerbrokers abandoned the Travel Promotion Act as a vehicle to pass Kennedy’s amendment. The travel bill may have been too unrelated to the hate crimes issue and another more germane bill is already selected. S. 909 remains like a disappointed passenger waiting for another train to take it where it has been trying to go since 1997.
But that train could come at any moment and be moving fast! It didn’t come Wednesday as the Senate debated healthcare reform. But Kennedy and the Democrats must be increasingly anxious to stay on the media-hyped wave of anxiety over hate crime terrorism generated by the Holocaust museum shooting. If that wave subsides over the weekend or the public is distracted by other issues, Democrats may lose the best moment for hate bill passage since Matt Shepard’s murder.
On Tuesday morning, I called Janet Porter of Faith2Action and warned her of Democrat strategy. I sent her Monday's Washington Blade article predicting passage by Tuesday or Wednesday. On her nationally syndicated radio broadcast program, she powerfully warned evangelical Christians listening to her 80 affiliate stations. Afterwards, she personally alerted the largest conservative watchdog groups, some of whom, like the American Family Association promised massive protest.
Instead of going forward to almost certain victory, the Democrats, by their indecision have empowered renewed opportunity for heavy opposition.
I believe Kennedy and the Democrats will make every effort this week to repair Monday’s false start and move their amendment forward. The hate bill rattlesnake may have been bruised a little on Monday, but is very alive and poised to strike out against freedom.
Don’t stop calling. We want the hate bill kept in the Senate Judiciary where it properly belongs until fair and exhaustive hearings have been held. Call every day to all 100 Senators (names available HERE at Call toll-free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202- 225-3121.
Tell Senators, “I protest Senator Kennedy’s high-handed attempt to pass the hate crimes bill by amendment, without hearings in the Judiciary. If the Senator votes for the pedophile-protecting bill, I and my friends will never forgive or forget!” Tell Senate staffers to watch the dynamic nine-minute video "Stop the Pedophile-Protecting Hate Bill!" on the homepage of
On Monday, the Democrats made a serious mistake in dissipating their element of surprise and hate bill momentum, but this is typical of the bungling that has cost them hate bill passage five times over the last 12 years. In response to your prayer and activism, God has repeatedly rescued us by inspiring last-minute confusion in the hate bill ranks.
This is a time to exert equal faith and action. God is even more opposed to hate bill passage than we. If we unite our hearts with His through repentance and righteous indignation, He will confirm His decree:
"With God nothing shall be called impossible." (Luke 1:37)




Watch the dynamic 10-minute educational videos, "Stop the Pedophile-Protecting Hate Bill!, at which explains how the hate bill, S. 909, ends freedom. Please tell the offices of members of Congress to watch it! Also at, 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:

America First Books Editor's Note

For those new to this controversy, please link to the following articles:

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.
