EMERGENCY ALERT ! ! !
SENATE MAY VOTE ON HATE BILL THIS WEEK
By Rev. Ted Pike
8 May 07
With breathtaking speed, the federal hate crime bill S. 1105 is
moving out of the Senate Judiciary Committee to a possible floor
vote in the Senate this week. The Senate website says the bill "may
receive floor action this week." The offices of co-sponsors
Sen. Gordon Smith and Sen. Edward Kennedy confirm that reality.
Even though the hate bill did not pass the Senate Judiciary Committee
in the last session of Congress, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
is omitting formal hearings or testimony in Judiciary. Pro-hate bill
leaders are clearly nervous about the possibility that contentious
Republicans in Judiciary, like presidential candidate Sen. Sam Brownback,
will dramatize troubling objections, as did 11 Republicans in the
House Judiciary Committee two weeks ago. They are also nervous about
mounting opposition to the hate bill within grassroots Christian/conservative
America, an opposition with which Pres. Bush has allied himself,
threatening to veto the hate bill.
Reid, Smith, and Kennedy do not want high-drama hearings in Judiciary
because such will inspirit Republican senators to unite in opposition,
possibly leading to a Republican filibuster. I was told by Kennedy's
office that this would be disastrous to the Democrats, an action
they probably could not overcome.
So much for "due process" by the Democrats and respect
for the wishes of heartland America! Now it's your turn to let the
Senate know how you feel about the fast one the pro-hate bill Democrats
What You Can Do Today!
Let's smash the hate bill in the Senate! Come to www.truthtellers.org
for the 14
Republican Senators who voted for the hate bill in 2004 and 16 Republican
Senators who are not declaring themselves. Call
them NOW toll free at 1-877-851-6437. Tell them, "Please
do not vote for the hate crime bill S. 1105. Hate laws have taken
away free speech in Canada and much of Europe."
Once you have called these Republicans and the senators from your
state, call Democrats, especially these 10 who are not co-sponsors
of this legislation:
- Max Baucus (MT)
- Robert Byrd (WV)
- Herb Kohl (WI)
- Thomas Carper (DE)
- Kent Conrad (ND)
- Byron Dorgan (ND)
- Russell Feingold (WI)
- Mark Pryor (AR)
- John Tester (MT)
- Jim Webb (VA)
No fewer than 14 Democrats saw the light and voted with Republicans
against the hate bill last week.
There may also be time to email or fax my powerful brochure Anti-Hate
Laws Will Make You a Criminal to the senator from your
Don’t neglect to call the White House at 1-202-456-1111. Leave
this message: “Thank you, Mr. President,
for promising to veto the hate bill. I expect you to also reject
any modified hate crime legislation.”
Clearly, the Democrats are panicking. They want to vote before the
American people (now contemptuously regarded as suspect "citizen
lobbyists") can influence our senators against the most dangerous
legislation ever to come before Congress.
But I don't think the American people are going to be pushed aside,
not this time. Our response to Democrat high-handedness can be even
faster -- as quick as a call, email, or fax.
Take action! Save freedom now!
