After hours of contentious debate during which GOP members of the House parroted numerous lies funneled to them by the American Family Association, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (HR 1913) passed by a vote of 249-175. Democrats opposing: 17. Republicans in favor: 18.
Yesterday Sen. Ted Kennedy introduced a Senate version of the bill. President Obama has promised to sign the bill when it reaches his desk. That will likely be the first of his many promises to the LGBT community to come to fruition.
Senile reichwing politico Virginia Fox of North Carolina spewed out an utterly deplorable diatribe claiming that Matthew Shepard's brutal murder wasn't a hate crime, just a robbery gone wrong.
I hope Ms. Fox gets "robbed" real soon. People are posting her work and home phone numbers all over Facebook. No doubt the old crone will get a lil bit o' hate back in her face.
