(01/18/23) – Racist and race grifters have to be racist and race grift. In the latest example of this, well known racist Sheila Jackson Lee has introduced a bill that is claimed to fight “white supremacy” by attaching criminal charges to certain forms of “hate speech”.
The bill is called The Leading Against White Supremacy Act of 2023, and it aims “to prevent and prosecute white supremacy inspired hate crime and conspiracy to commit white supremacy inspired hate crime.” But what IS “white supremacy inspired hate crimes”? Well it seems that is anything she and her ilk does not like, but that comes only from “whites”.
The conspiracy addition means people who use “hate speech” online (to include social media platforms) could also face criminal charges under the legislation even if they don’t act on their threats or general statements.
This would include a person who publishes “material advancing white supremacy, white supremacist ideology, antagonism based on ‘replacement theory,’ or “hate speech that vilifies or is otherwise directed against any non-white person or group”.
But does this bill also address the same things coming from any other group toward any other group, to include “whites”? No.
So wouldn’t this in point of fact be a racist and very “unequal” treatment law? And as such be unconstitutional?
And in essence this new law could be used to criminally charge and punish anyone who is “white” for just about any criticism or disagreement with anyone “non-white”. But again, the standard(s) would NOT be applied equally in any other direction.
That does not that stop her or the Democrats from furthering this type of hogwash though. Equal protection or equal prosecution under the law means nothing to them. Power, control, and weaponizing anything they can to get that power and control against and over those they don’t like is their only concern.
“Mass shootings and other hate crimes motivated by white supremacy have been increasing in frequency and intensity,” the bill states. “These heinous and virulent crimes are inspired by conspiracy theories, blatant bigotry and mythical falsehoods such as ‘replacement theory.’ All instances must be prevented and severe criminal penalties must be applied to their perpetrators.”
The truth however, is that “mass shootings” tend to not involve “white supremacy” at all. Only their cherry picked and media promoted ones sometimes do. And we already have laws to deal with actual incitement as well as the criminal acts themselves.
This type of bill is not only unconstitutional, but it is more dangerous than many may realize. It is direct government control of speech and uses such vague terms and criteria that it becomes a weapon so ripe for abuse (beyond the basic abuse of its type anyways) that it should horrify every citizen. And the fact that it is aimed DIRECTLY at only one segment of the populous should horrify people even more, no matter who that group is.
But here we are.
This bill MUST be sent to the circular file, and this woman removed from office.
