(Note: I've removed the letter from this post because of threats to its author. The incredible evil that is standard operating procedure for those on the left led them to try to identify the author, and effectively target her for retribution. Thus I removed the letter. Imagine: this woman lives in fear every day, and the response to this violation of her basic human rights was an attempt to out her and put her life in jeopardy. That's what we're dealing with.)
Atlas readers know I am fiercely against the idea of "hate crime." All crime is hate and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
When you start to delineate what's in a person's mind or heart, aka thought crime, who decides? Who decides what's hate and what's not? The government? The Organization of the Islamic Conference? CAIR? Are things so bad that a rubber porky pig is a hate crime? Yes. And it will get worse. They create tales out of whole cloth to prosecute the innocent who dare speak out against oppression and subjugation.
But crimes against Jews, Christians, Hindus, Whites, Asians (as in Asian, not the buzzword for Muslim), etc ........*yawn.*
The hypocrisy looms large. I recently received a letter from an Atlas reader, an elderly, disabled woman who lives in a majority-Muslim neighborhood in an American city. Muslims routinely harass and torment her as she walks through the streets there. The idea that a non-Muslim is being tormented in an American city because she is a non-Muslim is debased and grotesque. The writer wrote to her Congressman several times because of these incidents of harassment, but has gotten no satisfaction.
UPDATE: Once again, the bloodthirsty jackals and hyenas are returning to their own vomit. I am sure many readers and most Americans are familiar with auxiliary law enforcement and neighborhood watch. Millions of Americans have auxiliary cops in their gated communities, in their neighborhoods, as an extra set of eyes. The police can't be everywhere. To make this outrageous and outlandish leap to militias is the stuff of the rabid, mouth-foaming leftist destruction machine. Everyone deserves equal protection under the law. If that offends the goosesteppers, they can kiss my Keystone Kops.
When I lived in Florida for a short time, and the little community that I lived in had an auxiliary police force. Granted, it was a bunch of lovely old retirees who kept us safe. Are they Nazi militia too? The whole idea that we be held hostage by lawless thugs is un-American and outrageous. Everyone is entitled to feel safe, and to be safe.
