All Crimes Are @Hate Crimes@

If you are mugged or shot or raped or brutally murdered, does the motive of your attacker really matter? Or is the final result of his attack the real result?

Liberals have – again to assuage their guilt – created an entirely new genre of crime: "hate” crimes. These are, in their view,

As is the norm with liberals, their thinking is one-way and shortsighted. For example, if a noted conservative were mugged – and if the mugger knew his victim to be a conservative – is that not a "hate crime”? The mugger "hates” conservatives and thus selected his victim because of who he is.

Would the victim really care

The liberal media repeatedly invokes the awful murder of the gay Mathew Shepherd as proof of a true "hate crime.” Shepherd was singled out by his attackers for his homosexuality and brutally killed by them.

As awful as this crime was, was the motive relevant?

Can one murder be "worse” than another?

Let us examine the liberals’ double standard:

Two weeks ago here in New York at Hofstra University one student allegedly killed another. Yet the case garnered scant attention in the so-called mainstream press. Here are the basic facts:

Shaun T. Alexander, a 23-year old male Hofstra undergraduate asked a sophomore, Max B. Kolb, to meet him at a local motel to "discuss a problem.” Apparently Mr. Kolb was a nice young man and felt sorry for Alexander. So he went to the motel.

At the motel Mr. Alexander allegedly tried to get Kolb to have homosexual sex with him. When Kolb refused, Alexander allegedly killed him by brutal, violent and repeated stabbing. He then "hugged” the body – and, according to published reports – performed necrophilia on the dead body.

He then allegedly wrapped the corpse up and snuck it away to another locale where he buried it.

Why is this alleged crime not covered by "hate crime” legislation?

Did not the perpetrator "hate” his victim once his sexual advances were rejected?

Is the liberal media largely ignoring this case precisely because it is the homosexual committing the crime – instead of the homosexual being the victim?

What kind of double standard is that?

Or, several years ago, when Colin Ferguson – a black - pulled out a gun and blasted away on a Long Island Railroad commuter train killing and maiming many people – mostly white – why was that not a "hate crime”?

To hear his own defense at trial – he represented himself – anyone would know this sicko was a black racist of the worst kind.

Again, why weren’t his crimes considered "hate crimes”?

The answer is simple: crimes are only "hate crimes” if the victims are liberal victims: minorities or gays.

What a farce this whole discussion is!

Liberals have so divided this country!

We will never be the "one nation” Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of until we truly ignore "the color of one’s skin” or their personal beliefs or practices.

Liberals need to treat everyone – and every criminal and every victim – by the same standards. That is the only way the law – and justice – can work.
