Video Designed to Help Save Free Speech
Rev. Ted Pike
the fall of 2000, I embarked on the creation of a video not only powerful
enough to wake up the average American to the danger of
"anti-hate" legislation, but more specifically, to be well
received by those state and federal legislators who will ignorantly vote
anti-hate laws into reality.
eighty-minute video, "Hate Laws: Making Criminals of
Christians," follows all the slippery maneuvering of the
Anti-Defamation League, architect of anti-hate laws, in its attempt to
deprive Americans and Canadians of their free speech. In creating this
video, I filmed in front of the ADL headquarters in Seattle, Washington,
and in front of police headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia. I
talked with police anti-hate units throughout Canada. The result is a
video that, if a legislator or his aides watch it, will forever prejudice
them against not only the sham of anti-hate legislation, but also those
who conceived it, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith.
is a documentary meant for those legislative aides who occupy politicians'
offices in local legislatures, and in Washington, D.C. and Ottawa. Since
it does not avoid legal details, this video will appeal to those American
and Canadian legislative aides interested in comparing anti-hate
legislation in both countries. Although this video is eighty minutes in
length, I believe any legislative aide who starts watching will have great
difficulty turning it off, and great difficulty not telling his
representative about it.
rather than simply reacting to oppressive legislation coming down from
governments, I am sending a video missile directly into the wellsprings of
legislation. If enough of these videos are sent, I believe we can bring
the momentum of anti-hate laws in America and even, perhaps, in Canada, to
Can You Do?
you may ask: How can we get busy representatives and their staffs to
actually watch this video? Originally, I had thought of a massive blitz of
videos, sent by the National Prayer Network to legislators in Washington
and Ottawa. "It wouldn't work," Willis Carto, publisher of
"The American Free Press," told me. "All those Congressmen
care about is getting elected. You should try to get your supporters
around the country to phone legislators from their districts and ask them
to watch it. They have to be responsive to their constituents, or not get
elected next term."
tried Carto's plan. First, I called my local library for the names,
addresses, and phone numbers of my state and federal representatives.
After giving her the precinct and district numbers on my voter's
registration card, the librarian quickly and cheerfully gave me the
I called my representatives. When I told them I was one of their
constituents and had a video on hate laws legislation, which they must
watch, their legislative aides cheerfully promised to view it. In fact,
one state senator, answering the phone, objected when I suggested that I
send it to an aide. He insisted he wanted to watch it personally.
you will obtain a promise to watch this video from your elected state or
federal representatives, or you will promise to send it to a person of
influence, then, while the supplies last, the National Prayer Network will
provide you with any number of below-cost copies of "Hate Laws:
Making Criminals of Christians." Cost is $4.00 per video plus nominal
You Do More?
addition, contributions above cost of videos will be used to send videos
to many other areas highly propagandized by the ADL, key members of the
Justice Department, state and attorney generals' offices, state and
municipal civil rights divisions, conservative political organizations,
talk show hosts, etc. At
this moment our free speech is literally hanging in the balance. In
creating this video, I have done as much as I personally can to save
freedom. Now it is up to you. If you can change the vote of even a few of
the representatives from your district from Yes to No on anti-hate
legislation, you will have scored a tremendous victory for freedom.
1971, when Canada's hate law was passed, Canadians were asleep. But today,
with your help and the help of God, I believe we can awaken this nation
and our representatives from the sleep of death that is heading us into
the anti-hate nightmare. Together, through the truth in this video, we can
dampen the zeal and momentum of "thought police" rhetoric in
Congress and state legislatures. In short, we can preserve free speech for
ourselves and our children - at least in our time.
