LAST CHANCE TO KILL 'THE HATE CRIME BILL'
Rev. Ted Pike
October 21, 2009
Throughout the western world federal hate crimes laws are rapidly proliferating, revealing their true intention - persecution of Christians and the politically incorrect. In Canada, it is a hate crime, punishable by harsh fines and even imprisonment, to criticize homosexuality, abortion, or Islam. In England, you are a “hate criminal” if you wear a Christian cross or criticize Islam or the gay lifestyle. In Holland, “hate crime” means public criticism of fornication, adultery, and, of course, Islam.
In the United States, a similar federal hate law, passed by both House and Senate, could very well be signed into law by Pres. Obama by the end of this week -- that is, unless a tidal wave of emails from lovers of freedom demands he veto it.
Impossible? Not at all. Pres. Obama has repeatedly promised he would veto the 2010 defense authorization bill, with hate bill attached, if the bill has too much military “pork.” Throughout the spring and early summer the President and Defense Secretary Gates repeatedly warned that if Congress added $100 billion for thousands of extra F-35 warplane engines Obama would veto the defense bill, automatically killing the hate bill.
Incredibly, Congress defied Obama. Two weeks ago they added the forbidden $100 billion in F-35 funding. This contract is enormously important to the defense industry and members of Congress who financially benefit. Congress thus calls Obama’s bluff, hoping he will back down.
But there is a good chance he won't.
This is Obama’s first veto threat to his cantankerous Democrat Congress. He wants to win at all costs because he intends to run the Democrat legislative agenda and not let Congress take the lead. Also, Obama has been criticized as an exorbitant spender and indecisive in Afghanistan. By putting Congress in its place he could make a high-profile statement about his frugality with taxpayer’s money and his decisive leadership.
Here’s the part YOU can play to kill the hate bill.
The defense/hate bill has not been finally approved in the Senate. That could happen before the end of this week. We must bombard the White House NOW with the following two statements, each in its own email:
1. Mr. President, I will vote out Democrats at mid-terms if you sign the freedom-destroying hate crimes bill.
2. Mr. President, I expect you to keep your promise to veto any military authorization bill that wastes $100 billion of taxpayers' money on unnecessary F-35 jet engines.
Send these two messages in separate e-mails. You may cut and paste them in at www.whitehouse.gov/contact.

Through thousands of emails, it is possible to convince Obama that most Americans don’t want to pay out an unnecessary $100 billion. He should disregard pressure from the Democrats and homosexual lobby and send the defense/hate bill back to Congress. Some may object that Obama’s pledge to veto the defense bill cannot be trusted. That may be true. But, like every politician, he is very concerned about a public image of honesty. A tsunami of emails right now is the most practical way to make Obama honest - and save freedom.
