93. Let's tell the thousands of future victims that maybe someday
we'll get the Constitution recognized. And that we're sorry that they were sacrificial lambs to protect the "beliefs" of those who were taught to kill them because they merely existed. Then we'll tell them we're sorry that we couldn't protect THEIR beliefs as Americans because the "beliefs' of the perpetrators were always much more important.

The hate crime laws already exist. Perhaps your points would be more understandable if you expanded them to include examples of how they have been applied in the past to OTHER groups or why it is adamantly important to exclude US NOW but not repeal the existing law. Have you used any examples where the law has been effective or ineffective? Where it has chilled free speech? Or is it only a threat now that they want to add sexual orientation?
