Defeat S. 909 Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Bill
Status: Currently in the Senate, this bill could come up for a vote as early as TODAY.
As reported on the Boston.com site, this hate crimes legislation has now been attached to a Defense spending bill that is currently on the Senate floor.
There are many problems with “hate crimes” legislation, including that violates the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment by providing special protections to some citizens it does not afford to others. It further violates the First Amendment by suppressing speech and religion.
On the Truth Tellers site, there is a video featuring testimony of Attorney General Eric Holder admitting that the bill doesn’t provide equal protection for all.

1) right to keep and bear arms
2) private property and the respect thereof
3) prolife core issue
