This Thursday at 10 a.m. EDT the battle to save America from becoming a hate crimes police state will be joined in the hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Every American who is able should view the live webcast of the hearing at www.judiciary.senate.gov.
But even as the hate bill battle rages, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith moves forward two more monster hate bills. While it is important that lovers of freedom not allow themselves to become distracted from present opposition to S. 909 in the Senate, we cannot remain ignorant of these new attempts by the ADL to batter down the walls of freedom.
The first is ADL's "anti-bullying" bill, the "Megan Meier Cyberbullying Prevention Act," HR 1966, introduced to the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime on May 26. This bill is as simple and direct as the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act, S. 909, is complicated and obscure. HR 1966 makes it a federal thought crime to intend to "intimidate" or "harass" anyone over the internet or airwaves. Such "cyberbullying" is punishable by harsh fines and up to two years in prison. It does not define what the terms "intimidate" or "harass" mean. Promoted as legislation to protect America's youth, its real intention is to remove free speech from the internet altogether.
Here is the essential text:
Whoever transmits in interstate or foreign commerce [radio, TV, internet] any communication, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person, using electronic means to support severe, repeated, and hostile behavior, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both. (HR 1966, SEC 3, Sec. 881a)
This means that if any pastor, talk show host or guest, or anyone communicating on radio or the internet is repeatedly "hostile" to the practice of homosexuality and "intends" to cause "substantial emotional distress" in homosexuals, leading to repentance, he is guilty. The speaker doesn’t even have to succeed in causing such conviction for sin, even though he will be especially guilty if he does. In either case, the federal government is empowered under this bill to invade any state to prosecute the "bully" of the airwaves.
In legal theory, HR 1966 is a mirror image of ADL's Canadian federal hate law, Section 319, and its internet hate law, Section 13.1. These statutes state that if any speaker makes statements, even "likely" to cause a member of a federally favored group to feel lessened or intimidated, the speaker is guilty. Yet if he succeeds, the "victim's" claim of emotional distress is more than enough to convict the critic. Truth is not admitted in hate crimes tribunal courts. Only the feelings of the criticized matter.
House Judiciary Republicans must be warned against HR 1966. They must immediately prepare to oppose it vigorously in the House Judiciary Committee. Otherwise, it could move rapidly to a vote in the House.
Call Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee (names listed on the Action Page at www.truthtellers.org). Call toll-free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-225-3121. Tell them: "Please oppose the Megan Meier Cyberbullying Prevention Act, HR 1966. It's another ADL hate crimes bill which outlaws free speech through broadcasting and the internet. Please demand hearings on this very dangerous legislation."
ENDA to be introduced in the House
The second impending bill is ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. According to the Washington Blade (June 17, 2009, "Representative Frank Close to Introducing ENDA"), ENDA will soon be introduced in the House Judiciary. "An aide to U.S. Representative Barney Frank (D-Mass.) said Wednesday that the congressman plans to introduce a revised version of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act next week that will include protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people."
ENDA is ADL's workplace/real estate "anti-hate" law which forces businessmen and even church leaders to hire homosexuals -- and not fire them for "bias" reasons -- on penalty of huge fines and possible imprisonment. It also forces property owners to sell or rent to homosexuals, suffering similar penalties if they "discriminate."
Although ENDA is very threatening, House Republicans are familiar with it, having battled ENDA in the previous Congress. I believe they can be counted upon to take action.
Once you have called the House Judiciary Republicans concerning the threat of cyberbullying bill HR 1966, you should re-focus your attention on repeated calling of all 100 members of the Senate in protest of the federal hate bill, S. 909. Tell them not to vote for the "pedophile-protecting" hate bill, promising that if they do you and your friends will never forgive or forget.
Senate Majority Leader Reid says he wants a vote on the hate bill before summer recess. If we can kill the hate bill, S. 909, before Congress departs, it will send a powerfully demoralizing message to ADL, Reid, and the homosexual lobby to back off ENDA, the cyberbullying bill, and other freedom-stealing legislation ADL has in the works.
This week's protest, leading up to Thursday's hearing, must be massive -- letting all pro-hate bill Senators know as never before that a vote for the pedophile-protecting hate bill means our undying opposition. Even if we live thousands of miles from their districts, we will make sure, through use of internet, talk radio, etc., that they never return to Congress.

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.
