Democrats pass special protection for pedophiles!!! State, National, International, posted by Pete, a resident of the Downtown neighborhood, on May 6, 2009 at 6:41 am
Yesterday the house democrats voted 100% for a bill which gave special protection against hate crimes to pedophiles and voted against providing the same protection to our returning veterans. Let's see now it is against the law to spit in face of someone who molested your child but now legal to spit in the face of someone who defended our country!!! Obama supported the bill. Change we can believe in....Right!

Thank you for your terrific post. Yes, the Democrat party is a group that focuses more of its energy on defending pedophiles, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, radical Islam and any other enemy of our American citizens and way of life.
When it comes to defending our Country, our military, our children, our unborn, and our American culture the Democrats are 180 degrees opposed.
Democrats...are you proud of your Congressmen's recent policy protecting pedophiles and acts against our military?

I heard about this yesterday and am disgusted by it and then this morning I hear that tomorrow is national prayer day and the White House is going to strike "one nation under god" from the prayer they give tomorrow. We are going the wrong way!!!

Obama takes us down a notch each and every day and pretty soon he will have expectations so low we will be happy with any kind of success. As evidence today they announced job losses for the month increased by over 450,000 and the market went up because it was less than the 700,000 last month!

This is pure right-wing propaganda. Pete watches far too much Fox News. Here is the truth:
Rep. Steve King (R-Batshittia) introduced an amendment to the hate crimes bill calling for the term "sexual orientation" to exclude "pedophiles" even though the bill specifically defines sexual orientation as "consensual homosexuality or heterosexuality." Pedophelia, as everyone knows, is nonconsensual no matter who engages in it.
Not only was King insinuating the derogatory stereotype that homosexuals are pedophiles, but his amendment would've further validated this stereotype by writing it into the legal record. By the way, Joe the Plumber -- another very serious leader of the Republican Party -- advanced the same stereotype this week when he said that he'd never let his "gay friends" anywhere near his kids. Classy. Nevertheless, King making this kind of distinction is sort of like amending civil rights legislation with: "the term 'African Americans' shall not include anyone who rapes white women." It elevates a stereotype while denying one exists. Pretty slick -- in a creepy, sinister kind of way.
bviously, the point of King's amendment was neither to help to separate the LGBT community from nonconsensual sexual deviants, nor was it designed to make sure pedophiles weren't covered under the hate crimes law. King's intention was absolutely to trick Democrats into voting against the amendment -- and they did -- thus allowing the Republicans to say that Democrats are with the pedophiles.
So the Republicans are seeking a way out of their current mess by defining the Democrats as the party of pedophilia, even though the GOP's previous attempts to paint the Democrats as the pro-terrorist, anti-American party failed miserably to prevent landslide Democratic victories in the last two general elections.
