STOP THE HATE
06 Oct 2005
America is often called a racist, Anti-Semitic,
>nativist and homophobic country. Judging from the
>comments of many people on this board, it is clear to
>me that these accusations are not completely without
>merit.
>
>What is a concerned Human Rights activist to do?
>
>Does he sit back and do nothing while blacks are being
>strapped to the back of pickup trucks and dragged to
>their death by those who envision a "whiter, brighter
>America"?
>
>Does the concerned Human Rights activist do and say
>nothing while children are being shot up at Jewish day
>care centers and people are being lynched in Wyoming
>for no other reason than that they because they have
>the "wrong" sexual orientation?
>
>What about those who use the Internet to deny the
>obvious facts that the Nazis gassed six million Jews
>to death during World War II? What about those who
>persist in this absurd denial while bigots of a
>somewhat less savory status silently lurk within the
>shadows of Internet discussion groups and whisper --
>sometimes in coded words and sometimes out loud and in
>words impossible to misinterpret -- about the "next
>Holocaust" which will be the "ultimate final solution"
>for the Jews and others deemed a threat to Aryan
>supremacy?
>
>What is a man or woman of principle and morals to do?
>
>While I have no mysterious, supernatural "ZOG" powers
>to bring about a sweeping change to the State of Hate
>of America, I DO have some ideas that I would like to
>implement if I had that power.
>
>Here is my ten point plan in order to make America a
>more tolerant place where people can have a better
>appreciation of our differences and common
>understanding of our diversity:
>
>(1) Establish a National Dialog on the State of Hate
>in America. President Clinton did an excellent job of
>opening up the dialog on race and paving the way to
>more meaningiful racial understanding and racial
>reconciliation with his national dialog on race.
>
>We are in dire need of a National Dialog on the State
>of Hate in America.
>
>(2) The establishment of a National Hate Patrol Task
>Force. Great Britain has plain clothes police officers
>who enter ethnic restaurants and listen in on
>conversations to see if anyone makes a racist,
>anti-Semitic or anti-foreigner remark.
>
>I think this is a wonderful idea. For punishment, I
>would suggest a small fine and community service. For
>example, if someone is overheard trying to deny or
>minimize the Holocaust in a conversation, he can be
>fined $106 and forced to do 60 hours of community
>service in a Jewish senior center that caters to
>survivors of the Holocaust.
>
>If someone says, "all blacks are stupid", he should be
>fined and forced to do community service in a
>predominately African American elementary school
>helping children from deprived backgrounds who face
>learning disorders.
>
>The "Hate Ticket" could have a series of categories
>for the officer to check. This would include: (A)
>racism, (B) anti-Semitism, (C) Holocaust Denial, (D)
>nativism and xenophobia, (E) homophobia, (F) sexism,
>(G) anti-government extremism, and (H) mild bigotry
>that does not fall into a particular class or category
>(such as someone suggesting that he doesn't
>"understand" why abortion rights are such a big deal).
>
>For first time offenders who say something mild, such
>as, "there sure are a lot of foreigners here", he
>could be given a written warning.
>
>I think this idea has a lot of merit. We, for example,
>enforce laws against speeding in order to protect
>lives from people who would recklessly endanger them.
>
>Why not give a "Hate Ticket" to someone whose remarks
>and blatant bigotry tears at the very fabric of
>society and threatens to pull us all apart?
>
>Speeders endanger individual lives. Haters threaten
>the entire society.
>
>(3) Tax breaks for interracial couples. Many persons
>who are involved in mixed race relationships suffer
>from discrimination as well as negative reactions from
>family, friends, co-workers and strangers. This in
>turn leads to negative feelings which may become
>internalized and affect a person's earning potential.
>
>While tax breaks are by no means a cure all for
>society's prejudice and bigotry, it may provide
>temporarily relief for persons in mixed race
>relationships overcoming society's bigotry and the
>subsequent damaged self image that may come from it.
>
>(4) Abolish the border between the US and Mexico. As
>you know, a hungry, tired and oppressed family fleeing
>Mexico may face fanatical border guards whose
>in-your-face and often violent tactics and approaches
>border on fascism.
>
>We should give up on maintaining a border between
>these two countries. Americans who should be free to
>visit Mexico and Mexicans should be free to come to
>the United States.
>
>(5) National registration of all hate sites and hate
>site visitors. This would be modeled on gun
>registration laws and this would help produce a
>national database for law enforcement to help track
>down people who commit hate crimes or who say very
>hateful things about certain groups.
>
>(6) Start a "Keep the Hate out of the Home" program
>whereby children report to government authorities on
>their parents if their parents are overheard making
>racist, anti-Semitic and extremist remarks. Parents
>who try to teach their children bigotry would be sent
>to Tolerance Reeducation Camps and their children sent
>to foster homes.
>
>(7) Build Tolerance Reeducation Camps. This is where
>people who say hurtful or offensive things can be sent
>in order to become better informed and educated about
>the values of diversity and multiculturalism.
>
>(8) Hate Filters to be installed on all computers,
>both public and private in the United States. As you
>know, there are federal regulations that must govern
>the way computer equipment is sold in the United
>States. Adding mandatory software should be no
>problem. A "Hate Filter" would be installed on all new
>computers and required in all older ones so as to
>prevent the spread of poisonous ideas and ideologies.
>
>(9) Establish and finance with public money various
>Human Rights Councils. These organizations help to
>bring about racial justice to people discriminated
>against or who have been exposed to public contempt
>and ridicule on account of their race, religion,
>national origin, sexual orientation, or HIV-status.
>Canada leads the world in bringing these fine
>organizations to the forefront of the fight against
>hate and intolerance.
>
>An example: Let's say a columnist asserts in the
>morning paper that Hollywood is controlled by a Jewish
>cabal that is bent on subverting and destroying white
>Christian culture? Due to some holes in the First
>Amendment, that potentially pogrom-inspiring rhetoric
>would be perfectly "legal" by American "free speech"
>standards.
>
>The only "response" one could have is to write an
>editorial pointing out the Anti-Semitism of the
>author. But that of course would be playing right into
>the hands of the extremists as extremists just simply
>love to use the "facts." The only other option decent
>people might be left with is to boycott the newspaper
>itself and try to get the writer of the racist
>diatribes fired.
>
>This would NOT be so with a decent and hard working
>Human Rights Council on our side. If we had such an
>organization, we could stop the hate-mongers dead in
>their tracks with lawsuits, hate crime charges, ethnic
>intimidation charges and other legal means.
>
>(10) Increase foreign aide to Israel from four billion
>to $400 billion per year. Anti-Semites and Jew haters
>like to whine about the four billion Israel receives
>in aide every year. The fact of the matter is that
>four billion a year is only $16 from every man, woman
>and child in America -- or $1.25 (the price of a candy
>bar) per MONTH.
>
>I believe we can easily secure a Jewish homeland for
>100 times that amount. And since Israel is such a good
>ally of the US, perhaps we would stand to benefit from
>Israel's technology, strategic location and her many
>allies all over the globe. While $400 billion may
>sound like a lot of money, it is still only a small
>fraction of the entire federal budget.
>
>The $400 billion could be used by Israel to secure its
>borders and build up its military strength and protect
>itself from slurs, vicious attacks, chemical,
>biological and nuclear weapons.
>
>Of course, there are those who say there might be some
>opposition from Congress. "The Jews don't need any
>more
>money", these Congressmen might say. Our response
>should simply be to remind them that Hitler would have
>said the exact same thing.
>
>* * * * *

>These are my ideas. I do not expect this will lead to
>a perfect world but I do believe this is a great step
>in the right direction towards forging a better

What fascist bullshit.
06 Oct 2005
Fining people for their speach. Get out of here. That's pathetic. What next, a ticket for criticizing Bush?
Re: STOP THE HATE
06 Oct 2005
1. dialog on hate in America. Not a bad idea. But would it be twisted into propaganda. When I say that the Hebrew's murderous theft of the land doesn't give Zionists a birthright of murderous theft of Palestinian lands, I get slandered right and left. So, would the dialog include the enablers of murderous thieves slandering people who FAIL to appease the Zionist's bloodsoaked crusade?

2. would a hate patrol task force also fine people who suggest that Zionists have a birthright of murderous theft of palestinian lands, or that suggest that because ZIonist crusaders vote with the US at the UN gives Zionists thier birthright of murderous theft when all they are really doing is showcasing thier own prejudiced hate.

As for the alleged holocaust, the international red cross, which visited the camps, said it was the typhus epidemic and allied bombing of railroads preventing supplies from reaching the camps that killed tens of thousands of camp prisoners.

3 tax breaks? Wow, what a great idea. And how about tax breaks for the people ZIonist enablers have had fired from thier jobs for speaking out against democrpas and republitrash stealing public funds to finance the ZIonist's offensive war of conquest in palestinian lands?

4. Borders can be important. Look at how when Britts controled Palestine's borders and the rest of palestine, the Britts let Zionists invade Palestinian lands like Hitler let hungarians invade Slovakia. For some reason, some prejudiced hate filled people think that Britts giving palestinian lands to ZIonist invadors is somehow more valid than Hitler giving Slovakian lands to his hungarian friends. But it is no more valid. Both are prejudiced hate filled actions that should be exposed for what they are, OFFENSES.

5.database??? And who gets to decide what is a hate site. Would ZIonist web sites that suggest that Hebrews being murderous thieves of the land giving ZIonists thier alleged birthright of murderous theft of the land also be on that list? No? Why not?

6. In the homes and churches, that try to suggest that Hebrews being murderous thieves of the land gives Zionists a birthright of murderous theft of the land too. Wouldn't that put a majority into reeducation camps for pushing prejudiced hate speech??? No? Why not? Is it because hate is to be democraticly defined and the majority gets to decide what is hate speech?

7 This goes with 6.

8. Hate filters. Again, who gets to decide what is hate??? the Zionist enablers saying that Hebrews slaughtering and enslaving the locals 3000 years ago gives Zionists a birthright of murderous theft of the lands too, is obviously hate speech. Maybe we should first install the hate speech filters on lobbies, such as aipac, that buy America's whore politician's support.

9. Human rights council, again, who gets to decide who will be charged, fined, etc. Would people saying that Jews run hollywood be charged even if they had evidence showing that jews controle hollywood? Would people who push the idea that Hebrews being murderous thieves of the land(opr what ever vacant rationaliation) giving ZIonists thier alleged birthright of murderous theft of the land too, also be charged???

10. $16 dollars a year, for every man woman and child in America, to pay for the ZIonist's bloodsoaked war of conquest. A candy bar per month. $16 bucks will get you 120 rounds of .223 caliber ammo. Or 150 rounds of 9mm for an Uzi.

Zionists have no birthright of murderous theft, even if Zionists are Jews. For you to suggest that Zionists do have a birthright of murderous theft of Palestinian lands (and your call for us to reload ZIonist crusader guns a fast as ZIonists can unload them into thier/YOUR Palestinian victims showcases that) just because they are Jews is to showcase your racisal prejudices and hatred.

And look at all that other hate speech you added. Strategic location and technology are supposed to give ZIonists a birthright of murderous theft of Palestinian lands. HOW??? It was your supposition that being beneficial to US imperialism gives Zionists a birthright of murderous theft. Don't run away from your own prejudices. Tell us how such trash is not prejudiced hate speech, and how such trash isn't just playing on the prejudices of AMericans.

Oh, and if congess doesn't want to finance the ZIonist's bloodsoaked crusade, hey are to be compared to Hitler. Wow, more hate speech coming from your computer. Better fine you on that one too.

"A great step in the right direction"

Sure, Zionist enablers do get to trash anyone who doesn't want to support the murderous thieving offense of Zionists. Instead they would have us focus over here, and over there. But hands off when it comes to Zionists and thier enablers saying that hebrews being murderous thieves of the land 3000 years ago gives Zionists a birthright of murderous theft of the land too. Your prejudiced hate is so transparent.
