    When you combine active Military members and Veterans you have a substantial number of people who have been intentionally victimized by thugs and anti-American activists. Shouldn't the American Military and Military Veterans be covered under hate crimes statutes?

    Military and veterans? No way. They're mostly conservative, and it's not a crime to hate conservatives.

    Right, USMB lefties?

    It depends on how one is ‘intentionally victimized,’ otherwise you’re just another authoritarian conservative attempting to stifle dissent and free expression.

    Wisconsin v. Mitchell, the case upholding hate crime legislation, concerned a black on white crime, not that that should matter, of course.

    Cut the bullshit, can you back this up? My soldiers are very liberal and i know every one of them. Don't paint the Armed Forces with such a broad stroke brush.

    I'm sure that's what they say when you're around. But the majority of donations from the Military have gone to Ron Paul.

    If you really think "your soldiers" are Liberal, have a discussion about the NDAA with them. You DO know what the NDAA is right?
