The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 “would create an updated comprehensive report examining the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation and create recommendations to address such crimes.’
The one-page bill calls for Holder’s Justice Department and the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to “analyze information on the use of telecommunications, including the Internet, broadcast television and radio, cable television, public access television, commercial mobile services, and other electronic media, to advocate and encourage violent acts and the commission of crimes of hate.”
The bill does not define which actions by broadcasters would be considered to have encouraged violence, seemingly leaving that open to interpretation by a Justice Department who declared Black Panthers are incapable of voter intimidation under any circumstances. The interpretation would be left to people who declare law abiding citizens as anarchists, domestic terrorists and extremists already.
Once the report is compiled, the bill calls for “any recommendations” for action “consistent with the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States” that is determined to be an “appropriate and necessary” way to address the purported encouragement of violent acts.
The Marxist/Progressives have been striving to censor the press and the speech of the American people since January of 2009. The last attempt was Schumer trying to define journalist. Late last year and early this year we had the Marxist/Progressives attempt to have censors in news rooms to help define what stories were important.
The Boston Herald took issue with this bill, calling it “frankly chilling” that Markey is seeking to “empower an obscure federal agency to begin scouring the Internet, TV and radio for speech it finds threatening.”
Never forget that Marx said it is necessary to control all communications to successfully complete the fundamental transformation he outlined and Obama promised.
