Classic illustration of why a little knowledge is a dangerous thing May 4, 2007

CNN reports that Bush is threatening a veto of hate-crimes legislation.

I am not going to go into the wherefores of this legislation. Read the article and figure it for yourself.

My issue comes up from this phrase:

Both sides cited the case of Matthew Shepard of Wyoming, whose brutal 1998 murder was linked to his sexual orientation.

“Matthew’s death generated international outrage by exposing the violent nature of hate crimes,” said Rep. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisconsin, the only openly lesbian member of the House of Representatives.

But Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, argued that Shepard’s killers got harsh sentences without hate-crimes provisions.

These legislators on both sides of the aisle are idiots. This link thoroughly explores how the death of Shepherd was drug related, and had nothing to do with his sexual orientation. But the media has its poster child for hate crimes, and the Congress is following in lockstep.

Depressing, and no indication that the leadership of this country is in any way doing its job properly.
