HATE LAWS: BRAID YOUR OWN NOOSE
By Harmony Grant
7 Nov 07
In West Virginia , a young black woman named Megan Williams was
horrifically tortured and raped for days. Six white men are charged
with the crime and could get life in prison if convicted.
Prosecution has not filed hate crime charges. They say it would
complicate the case and be difficult to prove—especially since
Megan already knew at least one of her attackers.
But some activists want the hate crime prosecution. Malik Shabazz,
co-founder of Black Lawyers for Justice, organized a Nov. 3 “National
March Against Hate Crimes,” in West Virginia to demand it.
Rev. Al Sharpton joined him. The National Association for the Advancement
of Colored People (NAACP), however, refused to participate. The Charleston
Black Ministerial Alliance also urged its members not to participate. “We’re
not going to demand that it be something if that’s not what
the law says it is,” said
Perhaps these organizations were scared off by Shabazz’s
reputation. He is on the hit lists of both the Anti-Defamation
League and Southern Poverty Law Center, heavyweights who blacklist
him as the “racist and anti-Semitic” leader of the radical
Given his notoriety, Malik Shabazz is the last person who should
try to create hate crime legal precedents! He seeks to use the very
legislation that could land him behind bars.
Crimes of Disbelief
Megan’s horrific ordeal is a crime that should be harshly
prosecuted and punished. But should it be punished more severely
than the same crime against a white woman, or a black woman the defendants
did not know? No. Racial prejudice itself—the belief—must
not be criminalized. ADL, aspiring thought police of the world, seek
to criminalize many different beliefs and “biases” (including
those of anti-Zionist black people like Shabazz!).
We are witnessing the criminalization of dissent—a millennia-old
form of oppression. It happens whenever people have enough power
to force the consent of others.
The people who stand to gain from hate crime laws are those with
the power to wield those laws against disbelievers and dissenters.
Today, the people who stand to gain from hate crime legislation are
elite Jewish activists who control American foreign policy, and,
with war-making clout, truly have powers of life and death over this
Gilad Atzmon, an Israeli-born musician and anti-Zionist activist, lists
the 23 Jews who hold top positions in the Bush administration.
It is a staggering list. He writes, “Since America currently
enjoys the status of the world's only super power and since all
the Jews listed above declare themselves as devoted Zionists, we
must begin to take the accusation that the Jewish people are trying
to control the world very seriously. It is beyond doubt that Zionists,
the most radical, racist and nationalistic Jews around, have already
managed to turn America into an Israeli mission force."
It is not an overstatement to say we could be on the brink of another
world war, led by Zionists. Paul Craig Roberts, an economist who
served in the Reagan administration, speaks intrepidly against the
neocon Bush administration. Roberts writes
that an attack on Iran would be worse than Nazism—which
is the boldest description of evil you can make in our Holocaust
industry era. “Such an attack justified in the name of "American
security" and "American hegemony" would constitute
the rawest form of evil the world has ever seen, far surpassing in
evil the atrocities of the Nazi and Communist regimes.”
Especially after Mearsheimer and Walt, the floodgates have opened
on this. The evidence is out. Powerful voices speak the forbidden
truth: that Israel dominates U.S. Mid-East policy. But the cost of
speaking against Israel --and speaking against Jewish-inspired hate
crime laws--is still high. Some think they can benefit from using
these laws, playing the Zionist/ADL game. Shabazz is, frankly, an
idiot for trying to advance identity politics (“help the black
cause”) by using hate crime laws. These laws could silence
his own work! He braids a rope while his hangman stands behind him,
silently coiling up every inch.
Tearing Down our Safety Walls
The United States has been a unique historic experiment because
its founding fathers sought freedom for extremely disparate groups
and different systems of belief. They wanted to guarantee freedom
of worship and speech and the press—for as long as America ’s
citizens would defend it. Ben Franklin said he offered us liberty,
if we could keep it. With wry realism, the Founding Fathers foresaw
our current situation: a bloated, grasping federal government silently
snatching up the freedoms we think we still have. They knew power
must be limited and de-centralized. Whenever power is concentrated
in human hands, it is abused. That is the record of history.
Limits on government power increasingly erode when shortsighted
citizens stop seeing the government as a safeguard of basic liberties
and demand it provide a certain way of life. Once government has
power to require certain outcomes—by re-distributing wealth
or policing beliefs and forms of speech—it also has the power
to enforce its orthodoxies. And we all know what happens to dissidents
under such governments.
Right now, political correctness demands the defense of Israel
and Judaism, preferential treatment of homosexuals, moral relativism,
and removal of religious expression from public places. We are seeing
legislation put in place to require assent by force. Dissent is criminal.
Those who feel protected by such laws today may be jailed by them
tomorrow—as Shabazz may quickly learn when a federal hate law
is used to silence Israel ’s critics. No one is free when oppressors
sit on a throne—not even those who once seemed to gain the
