What they are opposing is it’s racist because blacks are the ones killing and beating the Asians, this bill leads everyone to believe that it’s whitey doing the crimes when it’s the blacks, don’t believe me?

Project veritas has cnn on video of them admitting they dropped the Asian hate crime story they were gonna put out when they found out it’s the blacks doing it, the producer said we can’t do that, we’re helping blm get away with all their current crimes by making up a narrative that’s complete and utter lies and misdirection from the truth.

Not always, caps lock boy. But in this case what's being called out is the empty virtue signaling of the press and the deliberate omission of the facts concerning these crimes--which sadly seem to disproportionately feature blacks attacking Asians.

The more you know!

Stopping these hate crime bills prevents companies and employers from being sued whenever they fire someone who happen to be a minority.

Traitorous, insurrectionist, cop killing MAGATS hate anyone but whites. Report MAGATS to the FBI immediately. MAGATS should be considered armed, dangerous, and violent at all times: 816–512–8200.

The bill is sponsored by Crazy Mazie. It assumes that calling Covid 19 the Wuhan flu is the cause of all assaults against Asians. Which is bullshit. It also calls for a study of how to criminalize calling Covid the Chinese Flu or the Wuhan Flu. Which is not only bullshit, but a clear violation of the First Amendment's free speech clause as well.

The shame is not that Senators vote against the bill, but that anyone votes for it.
