In San Francisco, “Hate Crime” Hysteria Metastasizes Into “Hate Speech” Totalitarianism
Earlier this month, on August 11,
the San Francisco Board of Supervisors
unanimously passed a resolution demanding the FCC
investigate the relationship between "hate speech in

While few hate crimes occur in San
Francisco, plenty of crimes occur due to criminal
illegal aliens. Yet in 1989, San Francisco passed a
sanctuary city policy
"prohibits city employees from helping Immigration and
Customs Enforcement (ICE) with immigration
investigations or arrests unless such help is required
by federal or state law or a warrant".
Many cities try to hide their
sanctuary policies, but in early 2008 San Francisco
actually lunched an ad
campaign to let all illegal aliens know they have
nothing to worry about. A spokesman for city mayor Gavin

assaults—one against a pregnant woman. Less than three
months before the murder he was arrested on gang and
weapons charges. But he was neither charged nor reported
to immigration authorities.
One of the
most outrageous aspects of the city`s system was that it
specifically protected known illegal alien drug dealers
from deportation. Last June, the

The NHMC seems to be the driving
force behind Campos` crusade against Hate Speech. It is
cited in four parts of the resolution. In fact, the
language and definition of hate speech (words like
"vulnerable group", "climate
of hatred") come straight out of the
"National Latino Policy & Issues Brief"
on Hate Speech and Hate Crimes by the UCLA Chicano
Studies Research Center and the NHMC. It takes a very
broad definition of hate speech to include words like
aliens". In fact, it specifically
cites criticism of San Francisco`s sanctuary policy
