I cannot say that I was surprised. Today, I read an article about an incident. I then watched a video in which an old lady showed up to a rally against the California gay marriage ban with a cross. She was verbally assaulted by the very angry crowd, and later, of course, her cross was taken from her by some angry gay men and then trampled purposely under their feet.
I find the hypocrisy here astounding. Sure, it was probably not a good place for an old lady with a cross to be in the first place, but these crusaders for personal rights and justice took it upon themselves to trample on her personal right to free speech and free expression, and then the proceded to further debase themselves by literally trampling upon religion. Very nice.
These, of course, are some of the best proponents of hate crimes legislation in the country. Well, now it is all on video for the world and the local prosecutors to see. I, personally, hope they are charged federally.
Disorderly Conduct (state)
Simple Assault (state)
Assault on the elderly (state)
Petty Theft (state)
Violation of her civil rights (federal)
Hate crimes against religion (federal and state)
That ought to do nicely.
