I puzzled over the word that should end the title for so long that I’ll leave the answer up to you, the reader. Watching events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri has taught me a very valuable lesson over the last week. That lesson is that I cannot understand the situation unless I was actually there. I can draw parallels to many of the missteps taken in the small community to the kidnapping last week of two Amish girls in upstate New York.

Errors are constantly made in situations where a person is confronted with violent crime. The need to make a victim of a crime, as I still believe Michael brown was, appear perfect by his family and horribly flawed to the point of deserving the consequences of their victimhood by others is chief among those errors. Michael Brown, clearly wasn’t a saint, but who among you there on Terra or I here in Hell is? There was something written in a great book about casting the first stone that applies to everyone. There was the narrative of a good kid who was going to college which furled the outrage among progressive bloggers and tweeters which was rekindled by the gleeful “I told you so” chorus from those on the Right after the videotape was released of Brown stealing cigars and shoving a store owner as he and his accomplice fled.

As I watched the video, which matched what we here know happened in the final minutes of Michael Brown’s life, in the conference room with my editor-in-chief, Cavalor Epthith and editorial page editor Diane Valencen, I wondered out loud just what was the purpose of releasing that video. As it stands in 2014 in the United States of America is it simply okay for law enforcement to kill a person because they walked down the street? And if not is it acceptable for the police to release previous actions of the victim to engender sympathy by creating a “thuggish” persona around him or her?

Colorado-Shooter-Poster

These questions bother me because it goes back to the way Americans today deal with the everyday effects that crime and death have on thousands of Americans every day. I saw on Twitter a link to a story that showed how the Aurora, Colorado theater shooter was portrayed the first time the media showed a picture of him. He looked like any other geeky white kid. The first photo I saw of Mike Brown looked terribly imposing. Double standard? I would have to say so.

081614amish

And this finally brings me to the two little Amish girls in New York state. I am glad they are home again with their family. I read where the parents have forgiven their kidnappers and I have also learned where the girls were tragically sexually abused during their 23 hour ordeal. The mother of the 12 and 7 year old said that while she was glad to have her girls back things are not the same as they were. But if these parents who have had their little girls’ lives brutally changed forever have not lost their faith why is it so easy for the the citizens of Ferguson to be vilified for being so frustrated that their native son? To understand how I am looking at this now you have a question to answer. What would your reaction be if the Progressive blogosphere were calling the two girls little whores who really wanted to go off on a sexual escapade in a car with two strangers? Yes, even for me to say such a thing would be pretty shocking. In the end that’s what the conservatives have done with the Mike Brown case over and over again.

hindsight 2326
In Hindsight
Even now, having read to this point the conservatives that come here are saying to themselves, well the Amish didn’t burn their town to the ground or target every car they saw driving by until their girls were returned. That is almost a fair analysis if you value property over people and lucre over life. And here we go again that sentence will turn every conservative mind to the “holocaust of abortion.” And so it goes in 2014 in America the time you have all been waiting for when the tipping point in society was passed and you see the face of who cause the eventual decline into chaos. It is going to be surprising when conservatives see not Rush Limbaugh looking back at them or even some conservative gun loving Oathkeeper who has assassinated a prominent politician. No that person is you right wing “law and order” fanatic. This is your failure and the solution to the problem that has gripped America for the past thirty years, yes another question, “What happens when the peace is breached in an age when the police have the equipment of the military but not the training to deal with a frustrated American public?” Every 2nd amendment and New Testament clinging TEA Party freak ought to be at the barricades with the protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, but of course to those bitter clingers this cause is not their cause as Cliven Bundy’s was for reasons to them that are as plain as the nose on your face.

I am currently reading John Nolte’s article on 11 reasons the Left has not won the Culture War at Breitbart.com. Simply reading this is making my day because I love to laugh in the morning. Millions of conservatives have likely read this today and more than a thousand have commented. Those comments will be covered by Fred Schwartz later in the day.

Nolte begins with same sex marriage which I see as a full faith and credit legal issue not a moral and religious one. I don’t think, however, that any shop owner has a right to refuse service to a gay couple anymore than they have the right to refuse service to a person based on their race, religion, gender or disability. The author feels that the “voice of the people” has been tossed out in favor of the rulings of “activist judges.” In a bizarre twist John Nolte points to a rise in “Christian entertainment” as proof that Americans really do not want people they do not know of the same sex to get married. The singular example is the film “Heaven is for Real” which has grossed nothing yet because the film is to be released today. Nolte’s point is that Sony TriStar Pictures has decided to release the film on a Wednesday in 2,417 theaters. This film and others like it are one point Nolte shows as proof that on the topic of same sex marriage the Right is winning. I will make a claim here: Heaven is for Real will not make more money between its premiere and the end of the box office weekend than “Transcendence” will make from its opening until Sunday night on a theater by theater basis.

The next Culture War issue is the legalization of marijuana. Both Washington state and Colorado have legalized the weed most notorious to conservatives and more states are moving to decriminalize small amounts. Most recently the state of Maryland did just that becoming the first state south of the Dixon-Line to decriminalize pot. Fourteen other states and the District of Columbia have also done so. Nolte does not address any of the medical reasons for pot use or even recreational ones as a justification for a victory here in the Culture war. Instead he states that abortion rights activists are on their heels quoting an article on Breitbart.com no less about a poll conducted by the Knights of Columbus regarding abortion rights. The Gallup Polling Service numbers show that those who view themselves as pro-Life vice those that are pro-Choice are nearly equal at 48% to 45%. The numbers of those seeing abortion as federally defined from the same poll vice those who do not believe abortion should be legal at all is 52% vice 20% as of May 2013. Nolte loses this battle as well.

Nolte sticks with entertainment decrying the amount of sex on television but reveling in what he calls the return of the masculine male on the National Geographic Channel. These shows according to the author “celebrate the working class and their traditional values.” What he really means is they celebrate being white, Christian and living in the woods or where it’s very cold. The next “reason” the Right is winning the Culture War is the ascendancy of Jimmy Fallon to the Tonight Show as a counter to Stephen Colbert stepping into David Letterman’s slot after his retirement next year. There is no rhyme or reason to this at all.

The next nugget reveals something about conservatives. They like strong male characters. Nolte point to Don Draper [Mad Men] Walter White [Breaking Bad] and Tony Soprano [The Sopranos] as examples of these. They are called “flawed” and “anti-heroes” and I imagine that takes the guilt away for all the nudity, sex, drugs and violence which conservative say they are against on TV.

More entertainment, really? Miley Cyrus is popular but unions are dying says Nolte. I fear conservatives may never come out of this irrational abyss. As if the weakness of unions in America is a good thing for those working class people they say they love?

Conservative media is on the upswing says Nolte. Well get back to me in 20 years when most Fox News viewers are either dead or senile or have slaughtered their family. There is a trend in there demographically if you just take the time to look.

Women are getting birth control but conservatives have their guns! This is awful. War on women much? The fear of the Other is oozing here.

Nolte sees more money in politics as a solution to what ails the Right politically. No John, the key would be to make your tent bigger. Oh, that’s right you can’t do that because you’d have to let in all those brown people, women and gay people on a level playing field.

Yes, Occupy is dead but given time the TEA Party will wither as well. I think the date on that tombstone will be somewhere around 1 February 2017.

What John Nolte needs is a time machine so he can return to that conservative era of his father the 1950s. Back then by conservative standards women were in their place (not barefoot and pregnant but seen and not heard), minorities were second class citizens and it was a crime to be gay. It must be awful for John Nolte to have to watch as all that unearned privilege is redistributed in the form of earned civil rights.

Amazona there is a difference between taking a short cut to the Moral High Ground and actually looking out from the Moral High Ground. I’ll give you this point you are absolutely right that it is as simple as voting for Progressive or Liberal candidates to get your moral superiority biscuit. As a group Progressives do stand for good things. Being against poverty, torture, corruption, misogyny, bigotry, abuse aren’t simply things that Progressives are against though. Conservatives are also against many of these societal scourges.

This is where things get confusing and clearly why conservatives are tripped up and find themselves unpopular both electorally and in general. Progressives don’t require a purity test, a loyalty test, or a religious affiliation to walk into our tent. Conservatives with their messages about tax rates being too high should, on that issue alone, have had a way in to the minds of the moderates and independents out there but for some reason they have a social agenda that is more important to them than the economic agenda.

Issues like same sex marriage, abortion and immigration are where conservatives fail simply because their tent is not as inclusive. I’m not going to be so closed minded as to say that this is because of some grand bigoted conspiracy but it is what it is. Conservatives offer little to blacks, Latinos, members of the LGBTQ community, single mothers or the non religious. The coalition that has been built by conservatives since the fall of Nixon of working class whites in the rural West and South and a few upper middle class and wealthy whites who have an agenda driven by heredity and inheritance. This coalition had a majority during the Reagan era and had the Moral High Ground in the dying age of the Cold War. This coalition drove America forward to a conservative vision that likely thought that with political power would come the power to change society; to pull it back from the brink. At this point in Reagan’s second term no one would have imagined that 18 states and the District of Columbia would recognize the marriage rights of same sex couples.

And yet, thirty years later, here you are in an America that seems nearly alien to you. Looking up at people like me who are standing on top of the mountain of Morality. What happened? Is the question most of you are asking and that is the smartest question you can ask and it has an easy answer. Three decades ago, the Greatest Generation were the electoral force in America. They were more conservative than even you Amazona having never dabbled in the experimentation of the 1960s and 1970s with Liberalism as you have said you did. These men and women who were adults in the 1940s and 1950s were around your age now in the 1980s and Reagan was an ultimate relief to them. Hey were afraid the Greatest were that all of their hard work to secure freedom and liberty for the coming generations of THEIR CHILDREN was going to wasted by the creeping Socialism, Diversity and Depravity that they saw in Liberalism.

The answer is obvious what happened. Those from the Greatest Generation had children, the Baby Boomers, and those Boomers had children in the 1970s. Those Generation X children had children Generation Y, or the Millenials. Being born now to the Generation Y women are the Digital Natives of the information age or Gen Z kids. The easy answer to the question of what happened to fear of authoritarian religious, political or corporate power is the last generation that never questioned them has nearly died entirely and has been replaced with an ever more questioning set of grandchildren.

Those grandchildren continued the trend of questioning all authority that began in the 1960s into the new Millennium. I’ll be the first to admit that the War on Poverty was a failure because it simply threw money at a problem that could not be solved so simply. However, in that time the Greatest Generation still held sway on all matters social and the ground was not yet fertile for the sort of change that one sees today.

hindsight 2315
In Hindsight
On my side of the great political divide Progressives worry about the pendulum swinging back toward conservatism on a daily basis. Maybe the generation that will be born to young girls that are infants now in America in the 2030s and 2040s will hearken back to the nostalgic days of the 1940s and 1950s. Who knows? By the time they go to the polls for the first time they will live in an America so saturated in information both for the good and the bad that the messages that resonated with 21 year olds in 1945 will seem as archaic as silent movies do today.

I take Fred Schwartz’s decision to distance this newspaper from the cancer that is Blogs4Victory very seriously so after this example of conservative hypocrisy from the disgraced Bill Logan I too will be taking a sabbatical from commenting on their delusions. These people constantly state that the writers and researchers here are living in a fantasy world yet it is the fantasy that is supported by their own religious beliefs. “There cannot be a Heaven without a Hell,” is a constant in this Afterlife. Yet religious Conservatives at B4V mock that their is even a possibility that I, or Fred Schwartz or Pain even exist in the realm where we do live. To sum up, their fantasies, that all of their loved ones go to Heaven must be true because it supports their worldview; our reality is impossible because it is in conflict with their ideal that all Conservatives go to Heaven.

This level of delusion is important to understand when dealing with Conservatives especially ones of an age that lived through the Cold War. The fight against the Marxist-Leninism of the Soviet Union was supposed to be the last great fight that America was ever to have. It would be a winner take all battle between Communism and Capitalism, Christianity versus Atheism and Democracy versus Totalitarianism. Of course, this hasn’t been the case. There were many complexities politically and economically that do not fit into neat little boxes regarding the collapse of the Soviet Union. The same thing would have been true has America been broken up for similar reasons and the Soviets won the ideological battle for Terra.

Bill Logan, aka Neocon1, makes light of many things. He mocks the working poor and their struggle for a Living Wage. What he does is typical of a man who is angry that Death is so close and he has not been rewarded on Terra with what he felt he deserved because he was loyal to his racial tribe and religious tribe. As a Human Being, in that great struggle to become one he has failed because he has chosen the opposite path of Nelson Mandela and now fights for hate rather than love. To be on the side of hate is to relish lying and obscuring the facts to convince the other rotting souls who ally with conservatism that the Progressives are due for punishment for taking away the golden future that white Conservatives were promised. That golden future, sadly for Bill Logan is neither the golden shower he lusts for, nor is it a golden parachute; that future now is being enjoyed by the powerful oligarchs of the American 1%.

Neocon1 in his most recent tour de force of hypocrisy and obfuscation note that McDonald’s is installing 7,000 touch screens at restaurants to replace cashiers. It is a response to last week’s push by fast food workers for a Living Wage in the United States. Neocon1 gives the impression with his post that the hammer is going to come down on McDonald’s workers for standing up to their corporate masters. However, this story is neither about McDonald’s restaurants in the United States nor is it a current reaction to the protests. The story is about restaurants in Europe and was originally written in May of 2011. In the article itself, are the words, “McDonald’s says they have no interest in replacing cashiers with kiosks in Australia, however, or anywhere else for that matter.” So once again Neocon1 depends on the rabid stupidity of the other walking corpses of Conservatism who gobble up the feces of bigotry and anti-intelelctualism at B4V. To me they are to be pitied not to waste digital space on here or anywhere else. For at least a few months, unless their crimes of hypocrisy are grave, I will devote my time to pressing home the Progressive agenda to my American readers and enjoying the warm weather here in Hell.

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

Yesterday Ron Mapes of Concord, New Hampshire wrote the following letter to the editor of the Concord Monitor:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”– Sen. Barack Obama, March 2006

I think this statement by Obama, failed leader of this nation, pretty much explains to all honest, true red-blooded American patriots who love God and country what exactly is wrong with the United States of America right now. The time for Obama’s impeachment is now; the proof is there many times over. It’s time to get rid of those we elected last time and bring in honest, faithful political leaders who have the guts to get the job done and get it done right the first time.

It’s obvious those we elected last time were bought and paid for, not elected. Wake up and get it right this time.

Mr Mapes selectively quotes then Senator Obama’s speech of 16 March 2006 on the floor of the United States Senate. The full text of that speech is archived here at Snopes.com. The point the letter writer is trying to make is not a simple one, however, We, Ourselves, see the message as very clear. President Obama, to Mr Mapes and millions of other like minded Americans, is not an honest person. To the conservative element bent on having its way despite being a retrograde minority view sees the 44th President of the United States as the antithesis of a “true red blooded American patriot.” The leader of the free world therefore to the far right does not love the G-d that all conservative white Americans worship on this very day. And most definitively this man that was twice elected President does not love the country despite garnering 135 million votes in those two elections and presiding over the most difficult economic recovery in American since the Great Depression.

Mapes says the time for Impeachment of the sitting president is now. We, Ourselves of The Collective and the Meditators feel America, to use a popular colloquialism has bigger fish to fry. We believe that those who believe as this man does are fighting a war long lost on behalf of the memory of those long dead who reaped the benefits of generations of misogyny, bigotry and power concentrated in the hands of a tribally loyal few. The Collective understands that there is huge profit in telling people with closed minds exactly what they want to hear. Rush Limbaugh has made a career of doing just that. We, Ourselves, would ask you, the reader of this post, what has Limbaugh ever offered as a solution to any of the problems that America has today? Better, when his ideology ruled in Washington did he do anything other than to support his side blindly?

The Meditators often ask why people, no matter how tribally motivated do such things? We ask the same question in regard to minority violence in urban centers all across America? But unlike the far right which seeks only to blame others for its ills while offering nothing new as a solution, We Ourselves do strive to put measures forth to stem the suffering of the American middle class. Ron Mapes ideology is not the disease it is a symptom of the inability for a segment of America not to be able to let go of the need to have someone to struggle against vice joining the fight for Progress. Trillions have been wasted on the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty which were doomed without utilizing the proper tools. The solutions to both are legalization and education. To be a member of free society demands both responsibility and sacrifice and to that end ideological conservatives and thugs that want to hurt people and damage property are joined at the hip. Neither see what they are doing to their reputations as a group as harm because they are enjoying their moment in the sun.

Impeachment is not the solution to the problems that Ron Mapes sees that are a cancer in America, because Obama is not the problem. The problem in America now is that the conservative ideologues on Main Street USA have taken the Middle Class hostage piled them onto a train speeding toward a mountain tunnel where the poor are forced to roam and are smiling all the way to the bank with overflowing campaign coffers thanks to Citizens United. If you want more freedom and prosperity in America do not vote for the party that wants to send America back to back alley abortions, racial segregation and criminal prosecutions for LGBT persons; vote for a party that wants all people to be at least middle class and if you falter will be there with a safety net to allow you to reach for the brass ring. Bruce Currie who comments on the letter makes the obvious even more clear:\

This letter illustrates the extent to which some in this country are completely divorced from reality–when it comes to economics, politics, and virtually anything that requires coherent thought. That’s a summary description of those who identify as Tea Party members or their fellow travelers. Ted Cruz and his merry band of pranksters have led the Republican Party to the brink–and are taking the country with it. They’re getting hammered in the polls, and dragging the greater Republican Party down with them. Their recklessness is hurting millions of Americans who depend on the government, and yet we have some here who are cheering them on, and blaming the president and the Democrats for what is entirely the fault of a few extremist Republicans. Have they no appreciation for facts and the truth? Have they no shame?

Does this sound familiar?

We, Ourselves, of The Collective have noticed there has been a considerable argument brewing among conservatives regarding whether or not talk radio hosts such as Rush Limbaugh should be chosen to moderate GOP Presidential candidate debates in 2016. This strikes Us as an interesting topic of debate on many levels. On one side of the issue Limbaugh would draw a considerable audience among conservatives who would want to see how he handles the candidates and what questions he would ask of them. Limbaugh is not the mainstream sort of moderator and would add We, are sure, his own particular brand of spice to the generally moribund debate schedule. On the other side of the debate the one that mainstream GOP elites, like Grover Norquist, reside this is a major problem– Rush would become the star of the debates casting shadows on the likes of Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Chris Christie.

PresidentRushLimbaugh

We would like to offer a solution to the far right conservatives who find Christie too liberal and are weary of the name Bush. Why not support Limbaugh to run for President? The Meditators have the opinion that Limbaugh could win the GOP nomination quite easily and quite possibly could get out enough of the GOP base as to bring the Senate back into GOP control. The problem with a candidacy by Rush is that the Left especially the far Left would react equally to him as the far Right will. No amount of voter suppression in GOP controlled states would keep blacks and Latinos, the GLBTQ community and the Progressive Youth vote from flocking to the polls in 2016 to cast their ballots against Rush Limbaugh.

A Limbaugh third party candidacy We have estimated could raise as much as 750 million during the campaign with much of that being funded by powerful corporate TEA Party advocates with deep pockets such as the Koch brothers. This type of run would effectively divide the GOP forever and end the party as a national going concern. After 2016 the GOP would be lucky to keep control of the House in 2018 and would lose the 2020 election with Texas turning blue for the first time in many decades.

In the final analysis We, Ourselves, see the use of Limbaugh as a moderator for debates as far more of a destructive force in conservative politics on the professional scale. A Rush for President push will likely happen next year but it will fizzle out as the GOP establishment crushes any notion of having an entertainer whose job it is to occupy the minds of those already in the echo chamber on Monday through Friday stand on the stage with the party’s heavy hitters. For both of these tasks Limbaugh simply has too little appeal outside his own base and too much baggage to be anything more than a political novelty.

THE CONSERVATIVE MIND: FACTS ARE STUPID THINGS AND WHY LEO PUSATERI ISN’T THE SORT OF PUNDIT YOU NEED TO READ

[NB: My conservative buddy Cluster shows how the conservative mind should work; in an effort to find common ground and find solutions. To check out his excellent site, click the chick.-- F.S.]

I have quite a few bones to pick right with Leo Pusateri’s latest regurgitation of right wing fearspeak at Blogs4Victory so you might want to settle in with a nice late morning cocktail, as I am doing, because will take a little while. The smart kids in the room are cognizant of what a hate crime is. To Leo Pusateri they are a Progressive tool to get back at White Americans. To a man like him whose mind is clouded with a dangerous cocktail of conservative ideology and religious hubris, hate crimes are nothing more than another form of welfare doled out in the form of revenge.

For those of you who aren’t that smart, or are conservatives let me refresh your memory of what defines a hate crime in the United States of America. Keep in mind now that unlike many of the fine folks I work with here in Hell, I am not an attorney and the only bar to which I belong is the glorious one down the street at Vulca. That said:

The modern era of hate-crime legislation began in 1968 with the passage of federal statute, 18 U.S. 245, part of the Civil Rights Act which made it illegal to “by force or by threat of force, injure, intimidate, or interfere with anyone who is engaged in six specified protected activities, by reason of their race, color, religion, or national origin.” However, “The prosecution of such crimes must be certified by the U.S. attorney general.” Streissguth, Tom (2003). Hate Crimes (Library in a Book), p.3. ISBN 0-8160-4879-7.

Those six protected activities include:

(b) Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, by force or threat of force willfully injures, intimidates or interferes with, or attempts to injure, intimidate or interfere with—
(1) any person because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from—
(A) voting or qualifying to vote, qualifying or campaigning as a candidate for elective office, or qualifying or acting as a poll watcher, or any legally authorized election official, in any primary, special, or general election;
(B) participating in or enjoying any benefit, service, privilege, program, facility, or activity provided or administered by the United States;
(C) applying for or enjoying employment, or any perquisite thereof, by any agency of the United States;
(D) serving, or attending upon any court in connection with possible service, as a grand or petit juror in any court of the United States;
(E) participating in or enjoying the benefits of any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance; or

(2) any person because of his race, color, religion or national origin and because he is or has been—
(A) enrolling in or attending any public school or public college;
(B) participating in or enjoying any benefit, service, privilege, program, facility or activity provided or administered by any State or subdivision thereof;
(C) applying for or enjoying employment, or any perquisite thereof, by any private employer or any agency of any State or subdivision thereof, or joining or using the services or advantages of any labor organization, hiring hall, or employment agency;
(D) serving, or attending upon any court of any State in connection with possible service, as a grand or petit juror;
(E) traveling in or using any facility of interstate commerce, or using any vehicle, terminal, or facility of any common carrier by motor, rail, water, or air;
(F) enjoying the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of any inn, hotel, motel, or other establishment which provides lodging to transient guests, or of any restaurant, cafeteria, lunchroom, lunch counter, soda fountain, or other facility which serves the public and which is principally engaged in selling food or beverages for consumption on the premises, or of any gasoline station, or of any motion picture house, theater, concert hall, sports arena, stadium, or any other place of exhibition or entertainment which serves the public, or of any other establishment which serves the public and
(i) which is located within the premises of any of the aforesaid establishments or within the premises of which is physically located any of the aforesaid establishments, and
(ii) which holds itself out as serving patrons of such establishments; or

(3) during or incident to a riot or civil disorder, any person engaged in a business in commerce or affecting commerce, including, but not limited to, any person engaged in a business which sells or offers for sale to interstate travelers a substantial portion of the articles, commodities, or services which it sells or where a substantial portion of the articles or commodities which it sells or offers for sale have moved in commerce; or

(4) any person because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such person or any other person or any class of persons from—
(A) participating, without discrimination on account of race, color, religion or national origin, in any of the benefits or activities described in subparagraphs (1)(A) through (1)(E) or subparagraphs (2)(A) through (2)(F); or
(B) affording another person or class of persons opportunity or protection to so participate; or

(5) any citizen because he is or has been, or in order to intimidate such citizen or any other citizen from lawfully aiding or encouraging other persons to participate, without discrimination on account of race, color, religion or national origin, in any of the benefits or activities described in subparagraphs (1)(A) through (1)(E) or subparagraphs (2)(A) through (2)(F), or participating lawfully in speech or peaceful assembly opposing any denial of the opportunity to so participate—
shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death. As used in this section, the term “participating lawfully in speech or peaceful assembly” shall not mean the aiding, abetting, or inciting of other persons to riot or to commit any act of physical violence upon any individual or against any real or personal property in furtherance of a riot. Nothing in subparagraph (2)(F) or (4)(A) of this subsection shall apply to the proprietor of any establishment which provides lodging to transient guests, or to any employee acting on behalf of such proprietor, with respect to the enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of such establishment if such establishment is located within a building which contains not more than five rooms for rent or hire and which is actually occupied by the proprietor as his residence.

That is the root of the hate crime law. Now many conservatives only consider violent crime when discussing hate crimes or bias-motivated crimes as they are actually called in courts of law. Violent crimes are not the only constituent of what can be a bias-motivated crime. Pusateri clearly doesn’t realize that hate crimes laws on the federal level aren’t a new phenomena. Hate crimes legislation actually started in the post Civil War era with the Civil Rights Act of 1871. However, it did take over one hundred years for the states to begin to enact hate crime legislation and that began with California [big shock here!-- D.V.] in 1978.

For a moment let’s look at some of the things that this conservative man is struggling with here. He feels that the murder of Delbert Belton is a hate crime. Well it isn’t unless it can be proven that hate symbols or hate language was used during the attack. Being a bigot and causing someone’s murder doesn’t immediately qualify the crime as a hate crime were that the case, George Zimmerman would be in prison right now. Pusateri says he “doesn’t believe in the concept of hate crimes.” Well, this isn’t a real surprise to me at all when you consider Pusateri likely doesn’t believe that black civil rights, GLBTQ civil rights or the civil rights of women have ever been threatened.

And then, yes, there is the bugiman of “thought crimes.” In the conservative lexicon there is no greater nugget of fearspeak than this. But why does this man use the term “thought crime.” Well that is simply because he wants those in his little tribe of conservatives to always feel they are under attack. The “Libruls” are coming for your guns. Not true. The “Proggies” want to allow bands of racially different thugs to be able to muder and rape white people with impunity. Also, not true. The “Commies on the Left,” as if there were any commies on the Right, want to ruin your small business with ObamaCare. Not anywhere near true. So this is designed to scare the shit out of a generation of people between the ages of 45 and Death who have stood by eating Chee-tos and watching TV while their country shifted socially right under their feet. These people’s parents expected fear of the Church and Hell to keep the “other” in check. Now that we know many churches are filled with predators and that some will go to great lengths to cover up that predation and abuse this one flied about as well as a lead zeppelin. There was until the 1960s a concept of groupthink on the part of communites, actual whole suburbs who thought their fight for racial discrimination was necessary simply out of the fear of being ostracized. Now nobody cares because America is better when diversity is celebrated and people live within the law.

hindsight 2219
In Hindsight

Pusateri is angered most because he truly believes that only whites get punished for hate crimes. In fact, according to the latest data available from the Bureau of Justice Statistics in March 2013, 63% of violent hate crime victims were White and 7% were Black between 2007 and 2011. Among the perps, during the same period, 53% were White and 27% were Black. Maybe with the latest two high profile acts of violent ignorance perpetrated upon innocent people by folks that aren’t White so prominently in the media those that want to drink from the well that Leo Pusateri has poisoned with fear and religious based bigotry need to read this article from Tim Wise and sleep a little bit better tonight. Or, they can read these stats about the epidemic of White American suicide in rural America and never sleep again. Given the choice of walking down a street in Brooklyn vice having Thanksgiving dinner in a rural White home where the marriage is crumbling, there are numerous guns, and there’s a lot of debt? I’ll take Brooklyn, anytime.

Pax Terra!
