Reno calls for tougher hate crimes law

"Reno calls for tougher hate crimes law," stated a CNN article by David
Williams that was on the Net Oct. 19, 2000. (See
And I get up every day before breakfast. That is as
good a sound bite as to say "crimes based on race, religion and sexual orientation
are 'the top three reported hate crimes" in the country,' as Janet Reno said.
|But while the former is a statement that can be verified through accurate observations
throughout the whole year, what does the latter mean? How many hate crimes are
there? What is their total number?
|Janet Reno knows better than to attempt with impunity to engage on propaganda tactics
that we would expect of Goebbels in the vilification of the Jews. However, she does
it anyway. That's the feminist way. They do it with impunity, and they get
away with it.
|Consider the following:
|From the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics:
Changes 1997-98 with Trends 1993-98
* Every major type of crime measured -- rape or sexual assault, robbery,
aggravated assault, simple assault, burglary, theft, and motor vehicle theft --
decreased significantly between 1993 and 1998.
* In 1998 males were victimized at significantly higher rates than females, ...
Americans age 12 or older experienced approximately 31 million violent and
property victimizations according to National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) data.
The 31 million criminal victimizations in 1998 represent a decline from 35 million
victimizations in 1997 and continue a downward trend that began in 1994.
Criminal victimization estimates from 1998 are the lowest recorded since 1973,
when approximately 44 million victimizations occurred. ...
|Hate crimes aren't even mentioned in that report. Why not, you wonder?
|From the same source, at http://www.ojp.usdoj.gov/bjs/pub/ascii/cv99.txt
Violent crime rates fell for many of the demographic groups considered between
1998 and 1999. The rate at which males, whites, and non-Hispanic persons were
victimized decreased between 1998 and 1999.
Number of violent crimes per
1,000 persons age 12 or older
Violent victimization of females was reported to police in significantly higher
percentages than victimizations of males in 1999 (49% versus 40%). ...
|That victimization of females was reported in significantly higher percentages (even
though the actual numbers of female victims are far lower and even their victimization
rates are less than that of boys and men) than that of males will of course be duly
exploited by redfems. However, that doesn't say anything about men who
don't report the crimes against them. They don't report them because they think that
the seriousness of the crime is so small that it isn't worth reporting them, or they don't
report the crimes against them because they know that if a woman committed the crime, they
may as well not bother reporting it. If they do, the victims are likely to be
arrested and the perpetrators will likely go free.
|Nevertheless, even that report states nothing about hate crimes. Do they
exist? Surely, even in the only 31 million victimizations that happened in
1999 (35 million in 1998), there must have been a few crimes that were motivated by hate,
but perhaps not often enough to be statistically significant, not enough to make it worth
|A clue to why not much is being said so far about hate crime statistics
can be found in the title of the following document. It appears that "hate
crimes" are yet to be manufactured.
|Hate Crime Statistics Improvement Program Solicitiation [sic], Federal Register
SUMMARY: The purpose of this notice is to announce a public solicitation for services
related to improving the accuracy and geographic coverage of hate crime statistics,
developing trend data with regard to hate crime statistics and identifying "best
practices" regarding the collection of hate crime statistics. ...
The FBI assembles the information provided by state and local agencies and annually
publishes a national hate crime statistics report which is available from the FBI in
printed form on its website (http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/hatecommunist_manifesto.htm).
It is anticipated that assistance, in the form of one cooperative
agreement of up to $100,000, will be awarded for a one-year period of study. ...
|Surely, with that kind of money enough of an incentive exists to be able to come up
with some information on hate crimes.
|However, the blurb at least provides a lead to someone working on that, the FBI.
I looked up the URL http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/hatecommunist_manifesto.htm,
and found the following:
|Preliminary figures show 7,947 hate crime incidents were reported to the FBI during
1995. The incidents were reported by more than 9,500 law enforcement agencies in 45 states
and the District of Columbia. Participating agencies covered 75 percent of the U.S.
|That works out to less than one hate crime per jurisdiction of 9,500 law enforcement
agencies during 1995. Nothing is said about how many hate crimes there were in the
subsequent years, but at least it proves one thing: if you look hard enough you can always
find some dirt, and if you work even harder, you can make some inflammatory statements
about it, as Janet Reno did.
So, that means that as of now hate crimes account for about 0.0002 percent of all
criminal victimizations that took place (including pick pocketing) -- one out of every
4,375 crimes is a "hate crime" -- but you can rest assured that Janet Reno and
cohorts will do their best that if we don't worry about it, they'll make sure that we do,
and that if we don't want to, that they'll likely make sure we pay for it anyway.
Furthermore, does it stand to reason that if the number is not sufficiently
significant, that they'll make sure that the number of hate crimes will increase to a
level of a size sufficient to make us take notice? It seems to me that Janet Reno is
off to a good start on that. The funding for it is in place, and so is the rhetoric,
Just never forget how the initial $858,000 that Marion
Boyd (then the Ontario minister of women's affairs) got the Ontario Legislature to
approve in 1991 for an anti-male propaganda campaign against wife battering grew into a
national industry that now annually devours hundreds of millions of dollars and the
well-being of millions of people. Of course, the people in the USA have their
equivalent in VAWA II. Aren't the consequences of those government actions, too,
hate crimes, far greater in magnitude than anything than even Janet Reno could possibly
attempt to get people riled up about?
However, as Hitler and Goebbels knew all too well, if you tell a lie, tell a big one
and repeat it until people get to accept it as the truth. That is the power of
propaganda. It worked with eradicating the Jews, why shouldn't it work with
eradicating our families and the fathers that would otherwise be heading them?
Here is how the lie was made to work:
fudging of the truth is not a secret. It is well known.
Nevertheless, like all government-sponsored propaganda campaigns, even
though it is an elaborate lie it is now widely and universally accepted
as a fact. Here is another account of Marion Boyd's fudging of the
Neo Nazis and other overt hate groups are amateurs. THE HATE
MONGERS explains how some elements of the women's movement use
lies and hate to make big money for themselves, and how they
harm our culture and our economy.
Reno calls for tougher hate
Reno says crimes based on race, religion and sexual orientation are "the top
three reported hate crimes" in the country

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno urged Congress to pass broader
hate crime legislation in the final days of the session.
In her weekly news briefing Thursday, Reno said that Hate Crimes Prevention
Act would give the federal government more authority to prosecute hate crimes and expand
them to include sexual orientation, gender and disabilities.
"Hate crimes based on sexual orientation are among the three top
reported hate crimes after race and religion," Reno said. "Our laws should not
ignore that reality."
Reno said that both the House of Representatives and the Senate voted to
attach the measure to the Department of Defense appropriations bill, but it was later
dropped. She said lawmakers should pass the hate crime bill along with one of the
remaining appropriations bills.
"Congress cannot outlaw hatred but it should do everything it can to
combat hate motivated violence before it goes out of session," she said.
Reno said that under the new law, state and local authorities would continue
to handle most hate crime investigations and prosecutions but federal authorities would
have the jurisdiction to provide greater assistance.
"In some instances, local prosecutors and investigators do not have the
resources to proceed and it is a difficult process trying to make sure there is funding.
In other instances there's an unwillingness to proceed," Reno said.
"I don't think anybody should be able to escape justice for serious
crimes because of an inability to afford a proper investigation and prosecution," she
Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Bill Lann Lee also was at the
meeting and said the White House supports a proposal to compensate local jurisdictions for
the costs of holding long and expensive hate crime trials.
Reno rejected the argument that all crimes are hate crimes and that hate
crime laws send a message that some victims are more important than others.
"Hate crimes are different than other crimes because they are not just
crimes against individual victims: the victim is only selected because of a group to which
they belong," she said.
Reno also answered questions about the FBI's role in the investigation of the
bombing of the U.S.S. Cole in Yemen.
She said that U.S. investigators have established a good working relationship with Yemen
police and are doing everything possible to assist in the probe.
"I want to make sure we do everything we can to support the Yemeni
police and that we have the people on the scene that are necessary to support all
investigative efforts," Reno said.
She also described meeting the families of the 17 sailors killed in the
bombing during Wednesday's memorial service in Norfolk, Virginia, and talking to the
sailors who were wounded.
"The American people should be so proud of the U.S. Navy. These are fine
young people and they were brave, and what those who were injured wanted to do was to get
back and support their shipmates," Reno said.
|How can a top-notch journalist like David Williams, writing for CNN, get away with
writing what he did? It took me, an amateur, about an hour to access the facts I
cited in my message. Shouldn't any journalist worth his salt be able to do the
same? Shouldn't his editors know that and not let him get away with the drivel he
wrote? Are his editors and his bosses in on a conspiracy to destroy their nation, to
create strife and disagreement where there is none?
|We get a daily diet of incendiary statements. Nobody appears willing to rein-in
the politicians who make them. Doesn't anybody care anymore?
