- While protest against the federal "anti-hate"
bill, H.R.1592, is now widespread, virtually no Christian/conservative
organizations except the National Prayer Network are alerting America about
the other two hate bills in the House of Representatives: H.R. 984, "The
Executive Branch Reform Act," and H.R. 808, "The Department of
Peace and Non-Violence Act."
- The feeling of leaders is that we would do
well to keep people focused on the worst of the hate bills H.R.1592. As
for the others, well
- I disagree. I was tempted to feel the same
way in January when Sec. 220, which would impose crushing reporting requirements
on small Christian/conservative lobbyists, was added to the Lobby Reform
Bill. How could we effectively fight both the hate bill and Sec. 220 at
the same time battles on two fronts? I sounded the alarm against
Sec. 220 anyway. What resulted was an upheaval of protest, smashing it
in the Senate. Since then, protest against the hate bill has also dramatically
increased. This proves to me that the new right is more flexible, mature,
and capable of renewed protest than we might think.
- Window of Opportunity
- None of these hate crimes bills will probably
be voted on until the House reconvenes on April 13th. What a perfect
time to educate the American public and members of Congress concerning
the threat to freedom also posed by the little-known H.R. 984 and H.R.
- During the spring recess, House staff members
or recording machines will receive the following message by phone:
- Please don't vote for "speech crimes" bills.
These include H.R.1592, "The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crime Prevention
Act;" H.R.984, "The Executive Branch Reform Act;" and H.R.
808, "The Department of Peace and Non-Violence Act."
- A more lengthy version may be mailed, e-mailed
- Dear (House Member):
- Please do not vote for the following "speech
- 1. H.R.1592, "The Local Law Enforcement Hate
Crimes Prevention Act." Similar hate crimes laws have taken away
freedom in Canada and many European countries.
- 2. H.R. 984, "The Executive Branch Reform Act."
This Orwellian legislation requires all federal executive branch officials
to report to the government every call from concerned Americans. This
violates our First Amendment rights and our right of petition.
- 3. H.R. 808, "The Department of Peace and Non-Violence
Act." This would set up a "ministry of propaganda" funded
at $8.4 billion a year, dedicated to bringing "peace" through
- Send one letter containing my three flyers
against these bills (available at <http://www.truthtellers.org/>www.truthtellers.org)
to the House member from your district. Distribute these flyers and my
two articles (See, <http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/waxmanspeechcontrolbill.html>Waxman's
'Speech Control' Bill Subverts Democracy) (See, <http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/deptofpeacedoesviolence.html>'Department
of Peace' Does Violence to Christian Values) as widely as possible.
- Another Hate Bill Coming
- We must react massively right now because
it is no secret that ADL wants to reintroduce another monster anti-hate
bill, "The Employment Non-Discrimination Act" (ENDA). This will
directly lead to criminalizing churches and employers who don't hire homosexuals
or fire them because they are gay. Now is the time to continue to prejudice
Congress against all forms of "hate crimes," "speech crimes,"
or "thought control" legislation.
- Every communication to Congress NOW makes
it even more difficult for ADL to take away our freedom tomorrow!
