Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) discusses “sexual orientation”

Now we know what is not covered by pending hate crimes legislation, assuming the amendment is adopted. Thanks for clearing that up, formerly impeached judge. And yes, there is a moment when Rep. Hastings almost breaks into a number from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

  1. Love Crimes are better than Hate Crimes.

    Alcee and other Liberals say so.

  2. You noticed he didn’t say barackophilia was disincluded. Jennifer Loven sure noticed I bet, and touched herself.

    That would be self-Loven.

  4. Seriously, the chuckles you hear now and then is priceless…

  5. Since Souter is retiring, maybe Hastings can have another go at being a judge.

    You laugh, but I bet the actual pick is worse.

  6. Interesting. After reading off the litany of, uh, “alternative” sex acts, Hastings concludes by promising that

    All Americans regardless of race, color, religion, national origin. . . [insert usual left-wing litany of “marginalized” groups here] . . . or all of these philias and fetishes and isms that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are.

    So in other words, Hastings is worried that necrophiliacs, pedophiles, and those who commit incest might actually have to “live in fear” due to their acts? Perish the thought! I am sure that the criminal/pervert voting bloc really appreciates all that Rep. Hastings is doing to help bring their abhorrent behavior into the mainstream.

  7. So it will be discriminatory now to screen pedophiles from dealing with kids and zoophiles from vets offices or zoos? This is liberalism gone mad. If someone rapes your kid and you beat up the perp, you will go to jail along with the perp. What morally repulsive universes liberals inhabit.

  8. A corrupt doofus like Hastings, supported by enough of his constituents to remain in office, and keep being returned to office, is a perfect example of why some communities (or societies) are indefinitely, if not permanently, dysfunctional and supremely flaky. And when such parts of this country or world are in major trouble or turmoil, it’s very difficult to sympathize with them when they truly are their own worst enemies.

  9. Hastings is a strange, corrupt character, but hey, the Floridians like him.

    And, he’s not the strangest, most corrupt character to ever infect Congress, so, you know, give him a break.

  10. I’ll bet Alcee is wearing a naughty sexy cami under that dress shirt.

  11. The “spurious” amendment raises a legitimate point. The plain text of the hate crimes bill would make it a serious federal offense to punch a pedophile in the face for being a pedophile. Seems a shame.

  12. Sexual orientation brings to mind the question of plastics. Whose chest has more, Barbie or Miss California? but then, Miss Califorina’s was made in USA.

  13. Sexual orientation brings to mind the question of plastics.

    A silly statement used to introduce a lame joke. You’ll have to try harder than that, DCSCA. If you are looking for things that are obviously manufactured, you can start with Joe Biden’s hairplugs and his supposed status as a sensible Washington elder. It’s going to be a real battle to see which causes this country more headaches: Obama’s naivete or Biden’s stupidity.

  14. a lame joke – DCSCA.

  15. Well, with the way the left is going, Christians and Jews in the United States will soon need similar protection to be able to openly voice an opinion.

    tyree (5bef7a)

  16. DCSCA is a no class jerk who infests this blog. Kind of reminds me of dog poop. If he were not such a coward, he would identify himself so Miss California could sue his stupid arse for defamation. DCSCA is the reason there are laws against incest.

  17. If lefties are so animated about hate crimes against gays, then why do they continue to show sympathy for the Islamists ?

  18. Did Joe Biden get hairplugs to keep his brains from falling out, or to hide the insertion of a new one?

  21. Over two years ago, 14-year-old Elizabeth Shoaf was kidnapped, held in an underground bunker, and repeatedly raped because she was a virgin.

    Why are not virgins protected under hate crimes statutes? Are we to believe that the man who raped her loved virgins?

  22. Democrats have not yet met a racial, ethnic, or sexual identity/practice group for whom they have not tried to carve out special protections under the law. The Democrat slogan should be “Unequal Treatment-R-Us.”

    daleyrocks (5d22c0)

  23. It is perfect that a judge impeached from the bench for bribery, elected to Congress on the Democratic ticket, gets such a responsibility as reading this into the record.

    Sheesh.

  24. Democrats have not yet met a racial, ethnic, or sexual identity/practice group for whom they have not tried to carve out special protections under the law.

    They have not extended these protections to virgins…yet.

  26. Why are not virgins protected under hate crimes statutes?

    Virgins are not considered a protected class. The Democrats, obviously, don’t want to protect virgins. That’s why they howl against abstinence education

    Steverino (69d941)

  27. Why should they? Virgins only sent one Democrat to the White House in 40 years. Oh wait, that’s Virginians. Never mind. Potato, potahto…

    Xrlq (62cad4)

  28. Michael Ejercito – Virgins don’t have enough votes as a block to make them worth protecting, obviously.

  29. #7,”If someone rapes your kid and you beat up the perp, you will go to jail along with the perp”

    #11, “The plain text of the hate crimes bill would make it a serious federal offense to punch a pedophile in the face for being a pedophile”

    I may be mixing this bill up with another but isn’t verbal harassment included? Wouldn’t it be a hate crime if someone molested your daughter and you called him or referred to him as a pedophile?

  30. Of all the goof-ball ideas the Leftists have come up with, and there are plenty, this is one of the worst.

  31. How was the trip, JD?

  32. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. I love Texas.

  33. Alcee Hastings has fake boobs, is stupid, and Perez Hilton finds him unattractive.

  34. Gee, do we really believe that after this zany madcap sitcom bill is passed, the authorities are really going to take Muslims at their word and actions and deal seriously with Islamofascist mass virulent uber-hate crimes? Nope.

    Cos that would be problematic and hard. Muslims are dangerous. Better to attack Christians and others as a proxy logical fallacy strawman, cos they mostly fold like a napkin. How long can such a charade continue? Unti we are hear the call to Muslim prayer and insurrction across Delaware and New York, or are nuked?

  35. The fact that this guy is one of our elected officials is utterly absurd.

    Metroulas (78235e)

  36. JD:

    Hope everything went well.

  37. Hastings is just another example of why the Democrats need to find a way to get more quality legislators like Cindy McKinney back in office.

    daleyrocks (5d22c0)

  38. I’m a pastor. The Bible indicates that homosexuality is not what God had in mind. Will I be arrested for reading the Bible, my ‘interpretation’ not withstanding? Where does this go? If Christians and Jews aren’t protected, can Muslims slaughter us with impunity? (As far as the ‘hate crime’ aspect is concerned.) This is not what the Founders had in mind. This is going to be bad for everyone.
