Reminder on hate crimes.

I've written about this before, only now I come to find out Andrew Sullivan recognizes what is going on as well.

.
"The real reason for hate crime laws is not the defense of human beings from crime. There are already laws against that - and Matthew Shepard's murderers were successfully prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law in a state with no hate crimes law at the time. The real reason for the invention of hate crimes was a hard-left critique of conventional liberal justice and the emergence of special interest groups which need boutique legislation to raise funds for their large staffs and luxurious buildings. Just imagine how many direct mail pieces have gone out explaining that without more money for HRC, more gay human beings will be crucified on fences. It's very, very powerful as a money-making tool - which may explain why the largely symbolic federal bill still hasn't passed (if it passes, however, I'll keep a close eye on whether it is ever used)." - Daily Dish

Interestingly enough, some experts are now reversing themselves and saying there is no gay gene either.

  6. They didn't say there was no gay gene. They said that there has not yet been discovered one single genetic characteristic, and that most scientists believe it is a combination of nature and nurture. The APA's website has this revised statement on it, in English. I wonder if Pewsitter even bothers with fact-checking anymore.
