Half-Hearted Republicans Could Bungle Hate Bill Hearings!

Rev. Ted Pike
19 June 2009

Last Monday, Senate hate bill promoters held a press conference to boldly announce imminent passage of the federal hate bill by means of Kennedy’s amendment. Yet, yesterday’s announcement to hold a hearing on S. 909 in the Senate Judiciary Committee was not preceded by trumpets.
It was done by stealth. Yes, Sen. Patrick Leahy was true to his promise of five weeks ago that he would give a week’s notice if Judiciary hearings were to be held. But he didn’t want the world to know he had kept his promise, at least right now. He wanted the religious/conservative right, which has been opposing Kennedy’s amendment all week, looking elsewhere -- keenly anticipating sudden attachment of that amendment to a new and more reliable host bill. Leahy knew that the last place the right would be looking would be back at the Senate Judiciary Committee, which was supposedly done with the hate bill. Leahy hoped that, well into next week, we would be oblivious of Thursday’s hearing. Republican Senators would be un-encouraged and unprepared. Then, suddenly, hearings would be held with an array of Democratic witnesses: Atty. Gen. Eric Holder, ADL, SPLC, etc. on the offensive! Leahy hoped Republican Judiciary Senators would behave as they largely did during hate bill passage in the previous Congress. They would stay in their seats, silent.
Again, God has intervened to deprive the Democrats of their strategy and element of surprise. Almost as soon as put up the announcement of Thursday’s hearing, it was spotted by my secretary, assigned to watch the Judiciary website closely at least three or four times daily. I immediately sent out an alert and emailed WorldNetDaily. Today, WND's bold article warns its seven million readers of the hearing on Thursday.
Now is YOUR opportunity to make best use of the remaining four days to make sure we go into Thursday’s hearing as prepared as possible.

Dubious Senate Republicans

The potential problem next week comes not necessarily from our enemies, but our Republican friends. Especially during the last seven weeks that the hate bill has been in Judiciary, Senate Republicans in general, and Judiciary Republicans in particular, have not shown the same eagerness to fight as did their House counterparts. It’s been rather difficult, in fact, for callers even to squeeze from many Republican offices clear declarations of opposition to the hate bill.
This is consistent with the almost entire failure of Senate Republicans to publicly speak out against the hate bill when it passed on September 26, 2007 (See, Hate Bill Manipulators Should Come Clean). This Thursday, Senate Judiciary Republicans could well prove to be the Achilles heel of hate bill opposition. They might allow S. 909, largely uncontested, to race forward to almost certain passage in the Senate.
In the days preceding Thursday’s hearing these Republicans may have little time to prepare arguments against S. 909. But today, Friday, if they hear from enough of us, encouraging them to fight, they could have the weekend to prepare.
Let’s get on our phones now and call all Judiciary Republicans (names listed on the action page of Call toll free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-225-3121.
Tell them: “Please be prepared for vigorous opposition to the hate bill in Thursday’s Judiciary hearing. In the previous Congress most Republicans did not speak out on the floor of the Senate and let the hate bill pass. If that happens again, my friends and I will never forgive or forget.”

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.
