- Bowing to massive protest and demand for hate bill hearings,
Senate leadership has abandoned, at least for now, attempts to fast forward
the federal hate bill to vote in the Senate as an amendment. A hearing
in the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled for 10 a.m. EDT, Thursday,
June 25. Atty. Gen. Eric Holder, who recently came out strongly in favor
of the hate bill, is the only witness yet listed at the SJC's website (<http://judiciary.senate.gov/>http://judiciary.senate.gov/).
- This is exactly where we want the pro-hate bill Judiciary
Democrats -- forced to answer whether they, like House Judiciary Democrats,
will refuse to exclude pedophiles from special protection under the hate
bill. Conservative leadership groups should immediately submit a list of
expert witnesses, like Robert L. Knight, to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
- But will Senate Judiciary Republicans put up the same
fight their House counterparts did seven weeks ago? They have a dismal
record of almost no vocal opposition to the hate bill during passage by
the Senate two years ago. Only Sen. Orrin Hatch really put up a vehement
and systematic protest. (See, <http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/hatebillmanipulators.htm>Hate
Bill Manipulators Should Come Clean)
- It is vital that you call Judiciary Republicans NOW (<http://www.truthtellers.org/actionplan.html>names
available HERE at www.truthtellers.org). Call toll-free 1-877-851-6437
or toll 1-202-225-3121. Ask the staffer to relay this message to the
Senator: "Please vigorously oppose the hate crimes bill in Judiciary
hearings next Thursday. Demand an amendment excluding pedophiles from
- Call all 100 members of the Senate (<http://www.truthtellers.org/111thcongress.html>also
on the Action Page at www.truthtellers.org). Ask them not to vote for
the pedophile-protecting hate bill. S. 909 is still extremely dangerous
legislation, and Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy will undoubtedly conduct
the same "kangaroo court" hearings Conyers did in the House,
ramrodding the hate bill through while giving the illusion of due process.
Democrats might also propose their own sham amendment, seeming to ban
pedophiles but actually not. (See, <http://www.truthtellers.org/alerts/demsfearhatebillhearings.htm>Democrats
Fear Hate Bill Hearings) Demands must go NOW to the entire Senate for
a "no" vote on the hate bill if rapidly sent to the floor for
a vote after next week's hearing.
- Since Monday I've been warning against the hate bill,
demanding hearings, on 700 radio stations (predominantly Christian). YOU
can be even more effective now by joining with countless others to jam
phone lines to the Senate, call in to talk radio, and spread protest on
- This is the decisive moment when America decides if we
will remain a free republic or vassal to a one-world hate crimes gestapo.
- Make calling the Senate your top priority for the next
week. This is YOUR hour to change history!
