Pam, in her diary Daddy D crawls out of the crypt for lie-ridden hate crimes hysteria video, talks about Daddy D and his nutty views.
Let me tell you about the Focus On The Family/CitizenLink Take Action alert on the same federal hate crime legislation, entitled Take Action: Senate Committee to Take Up Hate-Crimes Legislation. There is a paragraph in it that angered me immensely:
“There is no evidence of an epidemic of sexual-orientation ‘hate crimes’ in this country,” said Ashley Horne, federal policy analyst at Focus on the Family Action. “So, what’s the real reason for this bill? Gay activists want to silence those who speak out against homosexuality.”
When I read that, I remember the words I heard spoken in recorded telephone call by Allen Ray Andrade, the convicted hate crime committing murderer of Angie Zapata:
“It’s not like I went up to a schoolteacher and shot her in the head or … killed a law-abiding straight citizen.”
Well, Ashley Horne, federal hate crime legislation isn’t about wanting to “…silence those who speak out against homosexuality,” unless it’s speech connected to violent crimes against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, with the victims ove these violent crimes selected specifically because the victim is lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender.
You know, victims like Angie Zapata. Her killer, Allen Ray Andrade, was convicted of both a murder and a hate crime after stating in a recorded, jailhouse phone call that no one would care much about Angie’s death because she wasn’t a schoolteacher or law-abiding straight citizen.
“There is evidence of hate crimes in this America, where victims are selected because of their perceived sexual orientation, gender identity and/or gender expression.
“So, what’s the real reason that Ashley Horne of Focus On The Family and her conservative ‘Christian’ cohorts want to protect the ‘free speech’ of convicted killers like Allen Ray Andrade in their effort to defeat hate all crime legislation? It’s because they want people like Andrade to have the ‘free speech’ connected to their bias motivated, violent crimes protected when they terrorize lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual people to be protected ‘free speech’ — ‘free speech’ statements such as Andrade’s ‘Gay things must die’ and ‘It’s not like I went up to a schoolteacher and shot her in the head or … killed a law-abiding straight citizen.’“
That’s right, I said it, and I believe it. Ashley Horne of Focus On The Family, and all of her cohorts Focus On The Family are arguing to protect the horrid ‘free speech’ of killers like Allen Ray Andrade, who brutally beat Angie Zapata to death last July 16th with a fire extinguisher specifically because she was transgender.
Ashley Horne must own the “free speech” of Allen Ray Andrade in her opposition to hate crimes legislation, since “free speech” is what she’s claiming lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people like me want to suppress.
Own Andrade’s words, Ashley, and choke on ‘em.
