So enforce existing state laws against murder and keep the Feds out of the picture.

    Could someone explain the error in my thinking?

    I'm guessing that a federal law would mean an investigation by the FBI and a trial in federal court, which would take the matter out of state and local authorities' hands.

    No there is no evidence that gay people were lynched. Considered sinners, yes. Despised and thrown out by their own families, yes. Targeted by the police in the underground bar scene pre Stonewall, yes. But lynching, not so much. If I were black, I'd be ticked off at the homosexuals trying to equate themselves once again.


    Many victims of lynching were white and some were women, especially those opposed to lynching and trying to stop it. Even a few Jews as well. But no homosexuals.

So DU-moron TexasTowelie is lying or parroting someone else's absurd lie (so absurd that failure to recognize the absurdity is as bad as intentional lying).
    TexasTowelie reminds me of Novaheart, who came on this board declaring that the Catholic Church was opposed to surgery, calling it mutilitation. This, of course, is generally false. There is no moral problem with most surgical procedures.

    What the Church IS opposed to is the surgical cutting of perfectly healthy tissue. This the Church DOES call "mutilation". In general, plastic surgeries that are other than restorative are morally problematic. What Nova was talking about was silicone breast implants on a genetic male who, for whatever mental health reason, thinks he is female. The Church does not condone silicone breast implants on perfectly healthy tissue. This goes for women as well as men. The exception, of course, is restorative surgery after breast cancer or other injury to the breast.

    What political activists are fond of doing is taking a small exception or objection and turning it into a blanket statement. That is what TexasTowelie is doing above.

    False Reporting on Lynching Bill Endangers Lives

    ORLANDO, FL -- Some media have falsely reported that Liberty Counsel is opposed to banning lynching, or, opposes banning lynching of LGBT people. Such reporting is false, reckless, and offensive. In fact, Mat Staver said, “No one can or should oppose a bill that bans lynching.” Staver continued, “We oppose lynching across the board for any person. Period!

    “The bill in question created a list of protected categories, thus limiting the application of the law. Lynching should be prohibited no matter the person’s reason for committing this violent crime,” concluded Staver.


    As an African-American, Jonathan Alexandre, Director of Public Policy for Liberty Counsel in Washington, D.C., is likewise outraged over the false narrative of the media. He said, “The systematic torture and abuse of African-Americans throughout history is this country’s greatest disgrace. Some politicians and media have tried to use this horrible history to push unrelated political agendas by hijacking a serious issue. Lynching is wrong for all people despite the reason for targeting a victim.”

    Liberty Counsel has received death threats as a direct result of the false media narrative. One person, whose identity is being traced, said “All LC leaders must die.” The media and those with a political axe to grind must exercise caution when reporting or using social media. False reporting endangers lives.
    The LGBTQUVWXYZ activists lied and at least some MSM folk shilled for them.

    I think a repeat of the Family Research Counsel shooting* is the aim of these activists and their MSM shills.

    * If one needed/wanted an example of W'pedia bias in political-social issues, they have one single sentence about this attempted mass shooting, in the Family Research Counsel. It's unimportant to them, so no article about the shooting, no article about the shooter, Floyd Corkins, just one sentence buried deep in the FRC article.

    I don't think anyone should be lynched period. Do I have to go the extra mile and say that sexual freaks deserve more protection from lynching than normal people?
    I'm trying to figure out what purpose a Federal anti-lynching law serves. There are laws against murder: whether the murder victim is white or black, gay or straight, they are dead; whether the murder victim was shot, lynched, knifed, clubbed, or poisoned, they are dead. So enforce existing state laws against murder and keep the Feds out of the picture.
    It's the same old, same old. It isn't because they NEED the special protections it's because they WANT anyone who lynches ONE OF THEIR SPECIAL protected class people to be punished more severely.

    See THEY can lynch (or whatever) a White person or a Republican/conservative and when it's pointed out that it is a "hate crime" they claim it ISN'T because White People and Republicans aren't in their special protected class.

    It' isn't about protecting people it is about having a weapon to use against Republicans and White people who don't agree with their politics.

    I think you may be right that the aim of these folks is to create violence against their political enemies. And you are correct that the shooting at FRC did not get the wall to wall coverage that other shootings get. Remember, if it doesn't fit the narrative, it doesn't get coverage. #FakeFirst.
