So-called hate speech has a wide and often political interpretation

Sen. Ed Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, has introduced The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 (S.2219) in the Senate.

“We have recently seen in Kansas the deadly destruction and loss of life that hate speech can fuel in the United States,” Markey said, “which is why it is critical to ensure the Internet, television and radio are not encouraging hate crimes or hate speech that is not outside the protection of the First Amendment.”

The legislation proposes updating a twenty year old report on the role the internet, radio and TV allegedly play “in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.” The report would then be submitted to respective committees in the House and Senate for action.

So-called hate speech has a wide interpretation. In addition to going after people who do not follow politically correct etiquette (for instance, Christians who oppose homosexuality), hate crime definitions often include political speech unacceptable to the establishment orthodoxy.

Liberals now routinely characterize patriot groups as part of the hate constellation that includes the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacists. For instance, media attention, according to Mother Jones, the George Soros funded magazine, put the Oath Keepers “on the radar of anti-hate groups. Last year, the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center both name-checked the group in their reports on rising anti-government extremism.” The group does not espouse hatred against racial minorities, homosexuals, or other government preferred groups. It was established to advocate members, who are current and former U.S. military and law enforcement, disobey orders given if they believe those orders violate the Constitution.
