    Big Chill: Feds want to scour Net, Media for 'Hate Speech'[W:32]

    Here's what hating "whistle blowers" on government spying of monitoring citizens leads too. A Bill that will allow the Feds to scour the Internet for anything they *think* or deem as "hate speech". That would include anything said on websites like Debate Politics, concerning these subjects, based on gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation and create recommendations to address such crimes.

    Don't think it could happen? We could be creating an environment that we didn't expect or want. Watch out who you condemn, it may be yourself.



    If two Democratic lawmakers have their way, Barack Obama’s Justice Department will submit a report for action against any Internet sites, broadcast, cable television or radio shows determined to be advocating or encouraging “violent acts.”

    This according to the text of a new bill from Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y.

    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,” stated a news release from Markey’s office.

    The one-page bill, reviewed by WND, calls for the 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.”

    Promoting violent acts... if that's "hate speech" then it should be watched for. As usual you're in hyped, drama queen territory where what you're typing and implying is very dramatically different than what is actually going on, and your "sky is falling" drama resembles a teen girl's. Seriously, aren't you guys tired of being thusly yet?

    WND also believes 9/11 was an Act of God to punish the US for tolerating gays and believes Obama was born in Kenya.

    You mean, like Sterling's punishment for his violent acts?

    We'll see where the hype is coming from.

    The bill also applies to those encouraging the commision of crimes of hate which are not necessarily violent since they may include acts of graffiti or vandalism.

    This is a different topic. Really keep up. The government has nothing whatsoever to do with the Sterling issue, it's all NBA, sponsor and pubic pressure.
    This OP is trying to equate "promoting violence" with "hate speech" by the government.

    And I don't see a problem with that either, so long as the penalty is akin to conspiracy to commit hate graffiti or hate vandalism. Personally I've been against the hate-crime enhancement, but after a year back on here, I see again that really it needs to be there. The irrational, hyped, teen-age type hysterical hatred that some people exhibit, deserves more punishment than other crimes.

    I do not argue in any manner that crimes should not be investigated and prosecuted but examination of all postings on the internet and other telecommunications, assisted by massive computer banks, is not compatible with the 4th amendment.

    Right, nothing has anything to do with everything. See how close all those standards start to blend.
