Diversity vs. Freedom in Idaho: Race Relations Industry Enters Spanish Inquisition Phase


"They
cannot speak English, but one word they know.
`Racialist,` they chant. When the new Race Relations
Bill is passed, this woman is convinced she will go to
prison. And is she so wrong? I begin to wonder."
 

— An
anonymous constituent of Enoch
Powell
, quoted in his Birmingham speech, April,
1968.

The First
Amendment
to the United States Constitution states
that “Congress shall make no law respecting an
establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of
speech.”

But in modern America, the race
relations industry has not only abridged freedom of
speech, it has become something of an established
religion.

Actual religion is persecuted,
but “race relations” is mandatory.

If the ACLU were consistent in
its persecution
of religious believers, Martin Luther King`s famous
“I Have A Dream”  speech
could not, in principle, be delivered at any college
commencement, or on any public platform. Dr. King was
a Baptist minister of the Gospel. His speech contained
5, that`s F-I-V-E, direct references to God (count
them by clicking here)
and a great deal of Biblical imagery. That`s the
kind of thing that is being chased
out
of the public square everywhere in America.
But in 1998 CNN reported
that MLK day was being celebrated with “Prayer and
volunteerism.”

Try celebrating Thanksgiving
with prayer sometime, and see how far you get.

Not only is “race relations”
a new
religion
,
it`s entering a Spanish Inquisition phase where it
burns people at the stake.

In Idaho, a man named Lonny Rae
has been charged with malicious
harassment
, as first reported here
by Sam Francis last week. I can`t see any evidence
that he`s committed an actual crime. But he offended
multicultural
manners
when he got in a scuffle
with Kenneth Manley at a high school football game.

Brad Hem reports
in the Idaho
Press-Tribune
that:

In
October, Notus High School defeated Council High
School in a football game that sent Notus to the
playoffs and ended Council`s season. During the
game, Council fans became upset at the referees
because they thought there were too many penalties
called.

Rae`s
wife, Kim, was covering the game as a freelance
reporter and photographer for the Adams County Record.
After the game, she tried to take pictures of the
referees because she thought it would add to her
story.

When
she continued to snap pictures after the referees had
asked her to stop, one of the officials, Ken Manley of
Boise, was reported to have grabbed the camera and
pulled it, causing the strap to burn Kim Rae`s neck.

The
two were separated and the referees entered the locker
room. Witnesses said Lonnie Rae began yelling at
Manley, who is black, and repeatedly called him the
“N-word.” Rae declined to comment Monday.

Rae`s
lawyer, Dan Hawkley, said his client was simply coming
to the defense of his wife, who was simply doing her
job.

“It`s
our contention that in fact the usage of the racial
slur was not racially motivated,” Hawkley said.
“He probably would have used some other word had the
official been white.”

I spoke to Edgar Steele, the
lawyer for Lonny Rae. He said that the prosecutor had
decided to go with felony charges, for a possible
maximum of five years in jail. In Steele`s view,
this case marked the dividing line between previous
hate crime cases, involving some actual crime, such as
a beating or a murder, and the thought crime type of
law that Canada`s Criminal
Code
has, in which it`s the advocacy of
“hate” against a particular group that`s
illegal.

Steele told ABC
that he thought that “the
charges have less to do with the law than officials
who are overly sensitive to characterizations that
Idaho is a haven for white racists. He says Rae is
being scapegoated for the sake of the state`s
image."

The county
prosecutor, Myron Gabbert, who made the decision to
prosecute this as a felony that could lead to five
years in jail, denies this, saying, in effect, “The
statute made me do it.” 
This, of course, is nonsense. Prosecutorial 
“discretion” is exercised all the time.

The
reputation of the state of Idaho comes into another Press-Tribune
story, in which a lawyer for Lonny Rae was asking
for a change of venue out of the small town where the
incident occurred.


Because
of press coverage and Council residents` attitudes
toward the Raes, Hawkley said it would be nearly
impossible to find 12 jurors there who aren`t
biased. He also fears jurors would find Rae guilty to
avoid perpetuating Idaho`s reputation as a haven for
racists.

The problem
with Idaho`s reputation is not caused by the small
number of white racists in various small groups in
Sandpoint or elsewhere. It`s caused by Morris
Dees,
and by media frenzy, the same kind of frenzy
that has recently given many people the impression
that “intern” is the most dangerous job in
America.

The SPLC`s
Intelligence Project has identified nine of these
groups in Idaho, but they are not exactly a “force
upon the plain” numerically. And according to both
Rae`s lawyer, and Brad Hem at the Press-Tribune,
Lonny Rae has never been a member of any of these
groups.

The Spanish Inquisition aspect
of the "race relations" religion is demonstrated
when an old age pensioner is prosecuted
in England for writing graffiti saying "Don`t
forget the 1945 War" and "Free Speech for
England".

Just
as he was finishing his display, Mr Staunton was
arrested by the Merseyside Police. The cost of
repairing his criminal damage is estimated at £80—not
a large sum, and the wall painted on is soon to be
demolished. Bearing also in mind his age and previous
good character, one might think he would have been
sent home and advised to keep his political high
spirits under better control in future. Instead, he
was charged with racially-aggravated criminal damage
under section 30 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
The maximum penalty for this offence is 14 years
imprisonment or unlimited fine or both.

The Spanish Inquisition operates
in Maryland when a man is given ten
years
for burning a cross. Compare this to the
nine
years mobster Carmine Agnello was offered
in plea-bargaining for firebombing a building.

Man given 10
years for burning cross


A man involved in a 1997 cross burning at Bowie [Md.]
High School was sentenced to 10 years in prison
without parole yesterday.

“This sentence sends out a clear message: There is
no place for hate crime in the 21st
century,” said Lynne A. Battaglia, U.S. attorney for
Maryland.

Brian Swetnam, 22, had pleaded guilty to federal
hate-crime conspiracy charges.

The Spanish Inquisition operates
in Michigan,
and this time the Inquisitors are actually
Spanish-speaking:

As Barton and her family tried to make their way
through the crowd, a man—in Spanish—asked his wife
to make room for them.

Barton, who does not understand Spanish, told her
mother: "I wish these damned `spics` would learn
to speak English."

Carol Benitez, one of the Spanish speakers and an
off-duty Manistee County Sheriff`s deputy, followed
Barton outside and copied her license plate number…

Almost two weeks later, Barton was charged with
disturbing the peace. But when she appeared in court
Oct. 13, 1998, Barton was charged with "insulting
conduct in a public place." In court that
December, Barton testified that she thinks immigrants
should speak English when in the United States….

None of these people has done
anything at all serious. There is a great deal of
interracial violence in the United States. (Most of it
is black-on-white
crime, of course.) But that`s not the issue here.

The victims of this new
Inquisition are accused of heresy. They failed to
observe the conventional pieties of the new
established religion. They thought that they lived in
a free country. That was their mistake.

The thing about this new
religion is that it`s established.
Like the medieval church, it has its enforcement
arm
, its universities,
its demands that the Armed
Forces
and the legal
system
be staffed only by those who believe.

When Enoch Powell spoke against
Britain`s Race Relations Act in the 60`s and
70`s he was protesting the creation of a privileged
class of victims. The British law is actually written
so that only members of a minority group could make a
claim.

U.S. laws can in theory be
applied to black racism, as they`re constitutionally
required to be color-blind. But, as David Horowitz
points out, according to the race relations industry, “Only
whites can be racist.”

Idaho`s law states
that that:

“It
is not the intent of this act to interfere with the
exercise of rights protected by the constitution of
the United States. The legislature recognizes the
constitutional right of every citizen to harbor and
express beliefs on any subject whatsoever and to
associate with others who share similar beliefs.”

But in practice, it might as
well say “Except for heretics, who shall be burned
at the stake.” 
If you don`t believe exactly what the Church
Of Race Relations wants you to believe and if you
don`t say it in the tone they want, using the language they prescribe, then you should think about
taking out fire
insurance.
