Hate crimes and Obama on the Constitution.

(HT Delaware Libertarian)

“Forget all of the guilty associations. This audio of Obama shows his full colors flying for total government control over all human economic realities.”

“….The Constitution is an eternal mandate that government exists to secure our innate rights as free people. It does not give us freedom, it exists to protect it against collective encroachments, by government above all. It does not "vest us" with rights, as Obama characterized the high court's decisions ordering government to equally protect the rights of African-Americans. …”
Go there.

Steve points out that an effigy of Sarah Palin hanging from a noose has been determined as not a hate crime. The troubling thing about this from my perspective is that according to Steve Whitmore, of the LA County Sherrifs Department, a similar display featuring Obama might not be considered the same.
Whitmore said that potential hate crimes are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If the same display had been made of a Barack Obama-like doll, for example, authorities would have to evaluate it independently, Whitmore said.

"That adds a whole other social, historical hate aspect to the display, and that is embedded in the consciousness of the country," he said, adding he's not sure whether it would be a hate crime. "It would be ill-advised of anybody to speculate on that."
My opinion is that the display is nothing more than a rather sick effort in extremely bad taste, but we have to expect that from liberals.

I strongly oppose the idea of ‘hate crimes’ as if something is a crime, it is a crime, the same crime regardless of what is going through the mind of the perpetrator at the time. The motivation of the person who did this was probably to make a political statement in bad taste. The ‘hate crime’ rules mean that another person making the same ‘political statement’ about another candidate can be charged with an offense.
