Liberal pundit Al Franken suggested to David Letterman that “[Lewis ‘Scooter’] Libby and Karl Rove are going to be executed” because they supposedly outed a CIA agent, a treasonous offense. Franken qualified his statement somewhat, possibly after considering the implications of what he had just said: “Yeah. And I don’t know how I feel about it because I’m basically against the death penalty, but they are going to be executed it looks like.” Franken later suggested that President Bush is at risk of receiving the same punishment, since Karl Rove likely told him what he did, but he added a caveat: “I think, by the way, that we should never ever, ever, ever execute a sitting President.” It’s OK for Franken to say this because he’s a liberal. There’s no need to cover the remarks in a front-page story in daily newspapers because Franken is a propagandist of and for the Left.

Dr. Kamau Kambon, a former visiting professor of African Studies at North Carolina State University in Raleigh in 2004, told a panel at Howard University Law School on October 14th of this year that white people “have retina scans, they have what they call racial profiling, DNA banks, and they’re monitoring our people to try to prevent the one person from coming up with the one idea. And the one idea is, how we are going to exterminate white people, because that in my estimation is the only conclusion I have come to. We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem.” White people, he said, had set up an “international plantation” for blacks, which made “every white person on earth a plantation master. . . . You’re either supporting white people in their process of death, or you’re for African liberation.”

The American Vision on Facebook

Homosexual and pro-abortion groups have attacked Christians for using heated rhetoric because, as they tell it, it leads to violence against members of these groups. If it is suggested that abortion is murder and homosexuality is a perverted sexual lifestyle, then there may be some people out there who will carry out violent acts against people from the singled-out groups. Such rhetoric must be silenced under a new fiat law called “hate speech” legislation. It’s not enough to punish someone for murder. If the murderer happens to kill someone from a protected class, whether racial, sexual, or abortion related, then additional punishments are tacked on. Former president Bill Clinton commented that “All Americans deserve protection from hate.” The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) tells it this way:

All Americans have a stake in an effective response to violent bigotry. Hate crimes demand a priority response because of their special emotional and psychological impact on the victim and the victim’s community. The damage done by hate crimes cannot be measured solely in terms of physical injury or dollars and cents. Hate crimes may effectively intimidate other members of the victim’s community, leaving them feeling isolated, vulnerable and unprotected by the law. By making members of minority communities fearful, angry and suspicious of other groups—and of the power structure that is supposed to protect them—these incidents can damage the fabric of our society and fragment communities.

But all Americans are not treated the same. Only certain “minority communities” that have gained political identity are offered hate crime protection. If a white person is killed after following Dr. Kamau Kambon’s counsel, there won’t be any added punishment. Blacks can’t exhibit hatred toward whites. Perversions in the law don’t recognize a hate-crime category for such behavior. Hate Crime legislation is a farce and a danger to a free society. Where have the media been on this story? They jumped all over Bill Bennett for an analogy to show the absurdity of liberal reasons for abortion, but have remained silent when a black man, a professor in a tax-payer funded college, calls for the extermination of white people.
