Wow nice troll Alice. You know damned well that’s not what I’m talking about because we’ve had this conversation before many times. I’m not talking about using intent to prove a crime I’m talking about the creation of a whole new class of crime with penalties far harsher than even a murder charge all based on someone’s beliefs associations or just some dumb twitter comment from years prior.

I’m not talking about racist motivations of a person who ends up murdering someone and deserves the stiffest possible punishment and using whatever motivations are necessary to get that murder conviction. That’s the way it’s always been and should be. But we have punks getting charged with hate crimes for vandalizing a mural last year in California. These laws are unnecessary and will inevitably be applied unevenly and will surely be eventually weaponized to go after anyone who isn’t in perfect harmony with the current politically correct viewpoint and the left has quite frankly proved this already countless times.

Supposedly the entire right wing is nothing but racists. Ron Paul has been called a racist. Hate speech is now pretty much anything outside mainstream progressive ideology. It’s perplexing that we don’t see anyone throwing concrete milkshakes at counter protesters ever get charged with a hate crime. Again it is and will be weaponized as a political weapon against anyone deemed to be a deplorable.

And the response is always, “yeah but those are the bad people”. You just don’t get it.

There is no equality so long as the laws are not applied equally. Murder is murder, assault is assault.

You know where I stand but again…. great Troll Alice.
