Congress Votes to Protect Pedophiles, But Not Veterans

In a Judiciary Committee hearing Democrats voted against excluding pedophiles from protection in the new crime bill bill. In the same hearing Debbie Wasserman Schultz verbally attacked Republicans for trying to add protections for Veterans in the same bill.

Congress votes to protect pedophiles, but not veterans ( regarding the Hate Crime iBill H.R. 1913)

FOX news

This is really kind of mind numbing and demonstrates what is wrong with Congress.

During a House Judiciary Committee meeting, Congressman Steve King (R-IA) offered up an amendment to the hate crimes bill to exclude pedophiles from being a protected category under the hate crimes legislation.

Every single Democrat voted it down.

In the same meeting, Congressman Tom Rooney (R-FL) offered an amendment to include veterans as a class protected under the hate crimes bill. Not only did the Democrats vote it down, but Cogresswoman Debbie Waasserman Schultz attacked the Republicans for even thinking veterans might need protection under hate crimes legislation. After all, who but Democrats in Congress hate veterans?

Wild Thing's comment........

If anyone questions whether these Democrats are on the side of evil this settles the matter. The direction the government is headed now that was to be expected. Every devant and perverse act known to man and some that are not will soon be legal and protected by law. Only those who speak out against them will be prosecuted.

I don’t care what these congress pukes put into law. I will continue to practice the truth and speak it.

They can't add military veterans because they're not the right color. Sorry folks but that's the way it is.

During the presidential campaign, Sarah Palin was hanged in effigy. Legal experts said the persons who hanged her cannot be charged with a Hate Crime because she is white. If it had been Obama hanged in effigy, they would have been charged with a Hate Crime.

Well, seeing that I'm a racist Rightwing extremist clinging to my guns and religion, I'd better set up my Bail fund. But if I pass by jail and am headed for the re-education camps, please try to smuggle in cigarettes ~ for the children, you know.
Damn, it's going to be a loooong 4 years.

I must go into mourning today-for our lost 1st Amendment rights have passed away. Our second is on shaky ground, riddled by the cancer that is congress. I once was lost, I was found and now we all are hopelessly lost adrift on a ocean of uncertainty and death. Pray for our children and those yet to be born, for the world we hoped to leave to them is no more.

Barney Frank must be grinnin' right now. Congress has the morals of a bargain basement discounted two bit whore on heroin. they'll do anything for a power trip. Interpreting a hate crime is as vague as interpreting insubordination, just look at how we've been labeled as terrorists.

BobF., oh my gosh I didn't know what had
happened about the Sarah Palin effigy. I
was hoping they would really be punished.

Yankeemom, ditto that. It already
feels like it has been forever.

Lynn, same here, yes prayers for the
children. It just makes me so sick to
see how the dems had a chance to take
this horrible stuff out and they
voted for all the evil to stay in.

Jack, oh yes I bet he is thrilled. I had
forgotten about him. He must be so happy
about all of this.
