We are now considering legislation based on statistics that include name-calling at public rallies as crimes. Are we going on to the school yards of this country and when two kids get angry with each other and call each other names -- what are we going to do, cart them over to the reformatory or add them to the list of 'hate crimes' perpetrators? This is ridiculous.
by:
Jesse Helms
(1921-2008), US Senator (R-NC), 1973-2003
Source:
in opposition to the Hate Crimes Bill which criminalizes name-calling and motives, the Bill passed the Senate and the House and was signed by Pres. George Bush, Congressional Record, February 8, 1990.

    Carter, do see the irony. If he hadn't stopped the legislation you may have been in jail by now :-)
