These two traitors, or as Harry Reid would call them if he had a spine, terrorists, are hell bent on destroying our country and turning it over to the Muslims or Socialists.
The bills just introduced by Sen. Markey in the Senate and Rep. Jeffries in the House concerning hate speech have to be looked at for what they will become. This is without a doubt a ploy by the liberals and Obamanites to destroy our freedom of speech and expression. I hope that we citizens can see through this treachery.
When you have crazy Senators such as Reid calling American patriots 'terrorists', how long will it be after this bill becomes law that he's calling anyone speaking out against Obama as a terrorist and having them arrested for hate speech? Also, of an even more grave concern is the slow but steady infestation of our society by Islam, promising to destroy our country as it has already done so in England, Spain, France, Germany, and the Netherlands. If you can't see this, then there is no hope for any of us. That same Harry Reid and his co-conspirator, Nancy Pelosi, stood before Congress and declared Islam to be the religion of peace! How can any right-thinking individual say such a thing knowing what is going on in the world? How long before they both use this God-forsaken law to squash all attempts to educate our citizens about the evils of Islam? Wake up and defeat these attempts at destroying our culture. It is NOT Islamaphobia. It is REALITY!

Very sad but very true, Bob.
I have children and nieces who think everything is just peachy outside of their little bubble and nothing bad will ever happen. What a sad life they are about to lead. I really pity their ignorance.

I liken it to being at a dining table on the Titanic, watching the glasses and plates slide off the table. The Captain says "nothing to worry about folks" and then most folks ask, What is for desert tonight?? As for me, my socks are getting wet. Mike

The classic line comparing the Titanic and politicians is, "No need to worry, we're just picking up more ice for the bar."

And if they get them passed, I wonder if any hate speech laws will ally to all, or just to protect certain groups of our society ?

The present administration seems to be rather selective in it's enforcement of other laws.

I think the saddest part of the whole thing is that some of the media has found it good for ratings if they intentionally twist & distort stories to instill fear & hatred. Naturally they normally say at some point that they too were misinformed or worded things wrong & are sorry. There should be no need for any Bill of this type to even have half a need for some to think that it's necessary in a somewhat civilized society. What ever happened to investigative reporting & the choosing of the spoken words before hand. There is however reference to the second amendment included in the "proposed" Bill that under our rule of Govt. is supposed to then be debated & perhaps compromised upon or not even brought to the floor.

There's lots of blame to go around. As bad as the media is, and has been, in this country, they've always had a large, gullible audience.

If you do any reading of American history you'll find many examples of where the "media" in this country has twisted and distorted stories since before the beginning of this country.

Some of the media stories of the early presidential campaigns were incredible, out-right smear campaigns that probably no editor would allow today.

Some of the best at it even took it so far that a name was invented for it. Just Google "yellow journalism" and you'll see that Pulitzer and Hearst made their many millions in the newspaper business, not by printing nice, polite, and truthful stories.

The "media" did it, and continues to do it, because they know it will sell to the masses. And don't think that it has anything to do with freedom of the press. It's all about freedom of the profit.

Your right SB the lies have been going on since man learned to communicate. It was just a matter of time before they found out they could profit from them. I think that in these times when there are so many Chicken Hawks & talking heads just itching for armed conflict it can end up real ugly & costly in both dollars & lives real quick.

I absolutely concur with all the above, without any reservation. And I would like to submit that in no way I am a "Bible Thumper". However I have read a good portion of the bible, enough to scare me!! And will have to paraphrase, as it was a long time since I read "The good book"
It is somewhere stated " That in the end Muslims will rise against the rest of the world".
"In the end the wicked shall be exalted".
And Just before CHRIST'S crucifixion a disciple asked him " Messiah, when will we see you again"? Christ replied " when the wind blows the seas rage and the land is struck by famine I will not be far away" Paraphrased.
Just where are we now???

JFG ,the word Muslims,is not found in the Bible,the rest of your paraphrases are. The Bible speaks of evil men & their wickedness increasing in the last days & also that "the love of money is the root of all evil. SB & samhill both mention the media constantly lying & giving false/evil reports,which just furthers the evil doers agenda & its all for the money/profit. If there is no profit in it then there is no news . SB i like your statement "freedom of profit".... sensationalism sure creates a lot of profit. tjn, you really opened a can of worms on the "hate crimes/speech" issue,one will soon have to be afraid of saying anything for fear of being charged with that "crime"

They just re-define terms and words from their common meaning, so it sounds reasonable, to what ever they want.

They are like 5 yr olds who when they cannot get what they want as adults through childlike actions.

I've met quite a few socialist wannabes that like to come up with these types of "fairness laws". It's amazing how often I saw that they also love making money, . . as they spout off that the rest of us should be "sharing for the good of all". I have yet to meet one that wasn't a blatant, greedy hypocrite.

I can't help but wonder if they will be hypocrites in applying those laws too ?
