A little portion that helped keep Freedom of Speech protections in place.... Wonder why that was removed before passage?
Another curious part of this piece of crap is the number, 1913. 1913 is the year that the ADL and the Federal Reserve were created. We're getting this rubbed right into our faces and don't even realize what is going on.
Here's what was cut out of this act before it was voted on, the bold portion. Sure are concerned about Free Speech, aren't they?
Text of H.R.1913 as Reported in House Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009
SEC. 8. RULE OF CONSTRUCTION.
Nothing in this Act, or the amendments made by this Act, shall be construed to prohibit any expressive conduct protected from legal prohibition by, or any activities protected by the free speech or free exercise clauses of, the First Amendment to the Constitution.
These modern day Bolsheviks are doing Lenin proud!
Look for this act to be used to go after bloggers who don't goose-step to the ADL's tune or write puff pieces about how great a country that Apartheid nightmare Israel is.
They won't go after you directly, that's not their style. They'll go after your ISP and threaten them with loss of access to the 'Net unless they drop your blog.
