There was a real hate crime here, and in the Tawana Brawley case, the Duke lacrosse case, the "Hands up don't shoot" case, the Houston truck shooting case, the Covington Catholic case, and all the hundreds of others.
That hate is hatred of whites, and the goal of all of these crimes is to incite homicidal rage in underclass blacks (and other minorities to a lesser degree), so that whites are attacked, raped, murdered and their property pillaged or destroyed.
Kyle Smith credits "progressives" with acting on deeply held beliefs that come about because they are misinformed.
NO AND NO AGAIN.
They are NOT mistaken. They are NOT misinformed. They are filled with anti-white hatred and they do what they do to harm whites and enrage blacks. If you don't get this, you can't understand anything that's happening in politics today.
‘reported hate crimes that have the structure of perfectly crafted narratives should be regarded with skepticism’
wtf is that? NR journo-blather.
How about the Jazmine Barnes farce? That hate fest lasted only one week. Until the police found the black shooters-killers.
So you have that one PLUS
Covington HS smirk vs demented old Indian
Hate crimes - thought crime.
The point is to make racism against blacks illegal. The new Harris Booker Lynching law includes homosexuals and trannies.
Libs already refer to speech as violence.
They want to criminalize un PC thought and speech.
Back in the 1930s, America was known as living through a red decade. I think we are living in a red/green decade now.
Let’s repeal hate crimes. They are racist and anti-white laws because white people are mostly charged with them.
To distill it down, they support hate crime and hate crime hoaxes because it fills a need they have, to create a victim class.
That is a core tenet of Leftism.
Let’s get rid of the stupid and corrupt concept of a “hate” crime. There is crime and that is all there is.
This case should represent Exhibit A in removing all hate crime laws; they are an abomination in a free country.
This hate crime crap was all set up to give special penalties against straights or whites who commit crimes against blacks or homosexuals.
All along, if something is a crime, it’s a crime. There should be no extra special super penalty because specially selected victims are involved when a specially selected straight or white person commits the crime.
Yet Cory Booker went on Twitter to say, The vicious attack on Jussie Smollett was an attempted modern-day lynching.
Most of the so-called hate crime have been hoaxes.
Hate crime laws are designed to destroy free speech and provide a legal construct to commit, jail, or murder people fight back against the ongoing marxist rebellion.
