So the question is, could a State make calling someone 'Homophobic' a Hate Crime? (Like using the 'N' word). I just read that Scotty person use that word in an article. It offends me. Could a State make the 'H' word equivalent to the 'N' word ???
Lawyers welcome to respond
The “H’s” will try.
I can’t see how it could be unconstitutional to do so, since we already do have words like the N-word considered hate crimes.
Alabama should try it. No judges in the state are likely to hear challenges.
It’s not illegal to use the N word.
Not very nice, but not illegal.
But the “N” word is not always a hate crime as such.
Certain people are allowed to use the N word with impunity, and call each other by that word. It’s only certain others of us who are banned from using said word.
And, one can use the N word, such as it is used in rap videos, as an artistic expression.
Nigga PLEASE! Don't act a homo.
can I say bone smuggler? turd burglar? light in the loafers? pitchers and catchers? playing for the other team? faggots? queers?
the problem is just so many ways to say it.
Homophobic is being used to describe anyone who doesn’t enthusiastically embrace the “gay” agenda and lifestyle. “Homophobia” is associated with irrational fear and hatred. Yet the news media—itself riddled with rump rangers and trouser pilots—paints at least 48 percent of the U.S. population with this brush.
Homophobes would be able to call one another that with impunity. But if you’re not down with the homophobes, then you’re a hater.
Haters gotta hate. But don’t you be hatin’ homophobes.
“Certain people are allowed to use the N word with impunity, and call each other by that word. Its only certain others of us who are banned from using said word.”
Yeah, if you are a “Holder’s Person,” it’s part of your vocabulary and perfectly o.k.
When all this crap started, the “hate crime” was a charge ADDED to a criminal charge. There was murder, and there was the hate crime. Two charges. It made the penalties worse.
Now, there doesn’t need to be a real crime for the charge of a “hate crime.” Just a word, spoken or written.
In a once-sane past, the only actionless words that led to a charge of crime were:
- lying to law enforcement
- crying ‘fire’ in a crowded theater
- threatening someone with violence
Now, no action is needed.
If you are accused of saying something, you can’t prove that you DIDN’T say it. So you are always guilty, and you have no recourse.
All this was foreseen and therefore intended by the makers of the law.
The very existence of “hate crime” laws was for the purpose of attacking the Constitution. Start with the Fourteenth Amendment (especially the “equal protection of the laws” clause, since “hate crime/speech” laws create automatic inequality via “protected” groups) and continue from there.
Geez, this is getting ridiculous. Whatever happened to, “sticks and stones...”?
Sure. The kakistocrats can make anything they want a crime. And generally will.
I fear you’re missing the point that I learned while overseas: passing a law is one thing, securing it’s enforcement or garnering obedience is quite another.
Best defense is the difference between fear and disgust.
I’m under no obligation to endorse any behavior.
As I understand it, the N word is not a hate crime unless used aainst someone in the commission of a crime such as assault, murder etc. It is OK to play knockout with Whitey, just as Get Whitey, White bread, Honky etc is A-OK in any context. It is only when the MSN publishes the race of the vistims that it may or not be a hate crime or may not be published. Same gobblydgook as they use.
Using the word “nigger” is a hate crime? Where?
The answer to the question is “yes” provided the people have been properly softened up via the sort of PC brow beating that the Duck guy was subjected to. The govt can then rise to “protect”.
It is time that John Q Public began fighting back against this PC nonsense.
Nigga PLEASE! Don’t act a homo.
“Homophobia” is actually am inaccurate term, since it implies “fear.
There is not a homosexual on the planet that I fear.
A more accurate term would be “homosexually misanthropic”.
How about making the word “racist” a hate crime? I like that idea.
We’re our way to becoming a contry of phobephobes.
heterophobes and hoplophobes are destroying our nation!
