I never said that all my furor is directed at the federal law in fact I posted the GW law professor stating his view of why both could be concerning.

Here’s the quote from my post:

You know, as a civil libertarian, as a big fan of the First Amendment, I have to say it concerns me. So, if we think about the Rutgers bullying case, if Mr. Ravi had been convicted of intimidating the victim there because he was a nerd or because he was skinny, then he’d get five years in prison. Because he was convicted of intimidating him because he’s gay or is perceived to be gay, he gets 10 years.

Here he’s talking about the state add on laws. So he, and as it turns out me too, have a problem with both.
