President Bush and his cronies stuck by their evil ways today. White House spokesman Tony Fratto toed the anti-gay party line and informed the press that Bush Administration plans to veto Congress’ proposed hate crime laws:
The qualifications [in the bill] are so broad that virtually any crime involving a homosexual individual has potential to have hate crimes elements. The proposals they’re talking about are not sufficiently narrow.
“Not sufficietly narrow? What do they want, specifications on sexual role and penis size?
No doubt the White House has been listening to Family Research Council, Rick Scarborough and other self-righteous folk who claim the laws will hinder free speech. President Nixon’s former aide turned penal preacher, Chuck Colson scoffs at the law:
The bill is not about crime prevention or even civil rights. It’s about outlawing peaceful speech – speech that asserts that homosexual behavior is morally wrong.
Oh, yeah, because “God hates fags” and “Shit stabbers burn in hell” qualify as peaceful. What’s with these people? Don’t they own a dictionary?
