The Kvetcher: A Daniel come to judgement
I donâ€™t know the exact magnitude of the â€śdefenseâ€ť Jewish communityâ€™s exact role, but I have to admit, it seems massive, just as it was on immigration. I also can tell you anecdotally that my own views on Hate Crimes law â€” a strangely egalitarian idea that all unprovoked crimes should be viewed harshlyâ€“have proven quite unpopular in my discussions with the â€śaffiliated,â€ť from the Havurah crowd to the Modern Orthodox crowd, who want special punishment for targeting â€śminorities.
Is this mentality influenced by Jewish law, which is inherently unfair, in that it differentiates in punishment between Jew and gentile, the latter receiving harsher punishment for breaking Noachide Law?
(All but the first VDARE.com supplied links.)
These interesting reflections drew some illuminating responses, several relishing the prospect of expanded social controls. The Kvetcher was unflinching in his opposition:
If we consider crimes motivated by hatred more heinous than crimes with other motivations, why not dole out harsher punishments accordingly?
Because Hate Crimes determine that according to whether the victim is of a protected minority or not. It makes one personâ€™s blood sweeter than anotherâ€™s.
