A Scathing Critique of Our Far Left Socialists

This deeply critical look at our far left socialists comes from an interesting source.

Throughout the totalitarian west, the Marxist internationalist elites, while busily flooding their countries with tens of millions of Third Worlders, have introduced specific measures to keep the native populations down and in check . . . Hate Crimes Laws. These laws state that a crime is not just a crime if we can find a deeper motive, such as hate of a specific race, sex, religion or sexual orientation . . . A murder is not just a murder if hate is involved and ‘minorities’ lives are worth more than whites! If the local jury trial is considered too lenient, then the globalist elites of the west can try the person again for ‘hate’ . . . In America, anti-white violence is exploding. An average of 12 people per day are killed by illegals and three times more whites and Asians are killed by blacks than vice versa. The same can be found in England . . .

Now go 'down under' to Crusader Rabbit to find the author. As to the critique itself, it is accurate in the sense that the far left wants to - and has to a large measure succeeded - in ensconcing victim classes within the fabric of our law. That said, there has been bipartisan support for retrying people on essentially the same facts in federal court if the state court trial did not end in a "satisfactory" result.

Double jeopardy of sorts has long been practiced in the U.S. During the civil rights push of the 60's, more than one white southerner who escaped justice for murder because of jury nullification was retried in federal courts for civil rights violations. While none can argue that at least a measure of justice was ultimately done, its also tough to argue that this was anything but a violation of the 8th Amendment prohibiition of double jeopordy, regardless of what that era's Supreme Court held. We saw a similar occurrence of recent note in the trial of LAPD officers for beating Rodney King when he refused to stay down and submit to arrest. A state trial found the officers followed procedure and acquitted them. Then the federal government tried and convicted the officers for civil rights violations.

While I am troubled by the double jeopardy issue, that is far less insidious than the ensconing of unequal treatment for thoughts during the commission of a crime. It criminalized political correctness. Why should a person who assaults a while male be treated differently than a person who assaults a black male. This raises substantive issues under the 1st Amendment right to free speech and under the 14th Amendment's equal protection clause. And, as slavery did until the Civil War, it makes a mockery of those most aspirational words of our founders, that "all men are created equal." It is a travesty that needs to be torn from our laws.

Many thanks for the link GW. And your treatment of the subject is far more thoughtful (and useful) than my quickie post.

May you and yours have a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful, productive 2010.
