The new, new thing in criticizing Hate Crimes legislation is to pretend that the Democrats have gone and given a whole bunch of special considerations or legal protections to pedophiles. That’s the case that Representative
Peter Steve King made to a suppliant Sean Hannity yesterday:
HANNITY: We’re running out of time. Is it safe to say that Democrats were willing to protect pedophiles but not offer the same protection to servicemen and women? Is that an accurate statement?
KING: Sean, it is a matter of congressional record. Absolutely true — beyond any doubt whatsoever. The recorded votes are there to prove just what you’ve said. They — and on top of that, [Rep.] Alcee Hastings [D] from Florida, that spoke on the rules debate, and he read a list of about 30 different paraphilias — proclivities, I call them — including pedophiles, necrophilia, and a number of things that I wouldn’t say on this program or any other. And he said I think all philias whatsoever should be protected by this law. That means every perversion that you can imagine would be special protected status under the Democrats’ bill that passed off the — floor of the House of Representatives.
OK, in the first place, Representative King needs to get his head examined, brusquely, by some sort of pneumatic hammer. Ryan Grim made note of Alcee Hastings’ little bit of Congressional theater, which was done to demonstrate that “every perversion that you can imagine” WOULD NOT BE PROTECTED BY THE HATE CRIMES ACT.
