Washington Examiner's Gregory Kane. Hate with Words is Violence

Thought Word and Deed

Washington Examiner columnist Gregory Kane recently published article 'Hate crime' justice is no justice at all uses the written word as an act of violence.

I respect the Washington Examiner's right to express its right wing political views. However Kane's article came off the tracks early on from its original argument that the attack was not a hate crime, instead driving down without mercy blow after blow on a woman who was just days prior laying beaten on the floor.

Mr Kane showed his hatred of gender diversity by intentional missgendering the recent beating victim. Kane obviously is aware of transgender sensitivities by purposefully repeating this
attack on the victim a transgender woman again and again. The same way that her two two attackers did in McDonald's.

There is no crime in hate thought, except what is known to god, that is not expressed as violence. The author of this article clearly stepped over the boundary of thought and crime. What Kane did was to express his hatred of transgender people in writing. What those teenagers did to Chrissy Polis was a hate crime using physical violence.

There is no pardoning Kane's transphobic hatred. He joined those two criminals in the attack with his written word.


State's Attorney can't Prosecute McDonald Beating as a Trans Hate Crime because of EQMD, NCTE, NGLTF, MD ACLU and HRC

Maryland's AG can't prosecute the McDonald beating as a transgender Hate Crime because of the legislative efforts of EQMD, NCTE, NGLTF, ACLU of MD, and HRC's sponsorship, tacit or direct, of HB 235.

Yeah, everyone's sure at least these groups are anyways, a bill with public accommodations wouldn't have passed. Or maybe it would have. We will never know because these groups didn't want public accommodations included and they refused to listen to us.

Least we forget that all that all these organizations participated in the silencing of the victim of the Maryland Beating, a transgender resident of Maryland! Equality Maryland (EQMD), National Gay Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF) and the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTC), guilty.

These organizations are now grandstanding trying to milk this tragedy claiming they fought to legislate transgender equality this spring. What they are NOT saying is they used every means at there disposal to deceive, hide, mislead, censor, alienate and finally ignore the Maryland transgender community while pushing a bill on them that they didn't want.

What they are NOT saying is that HB 235 even if passed would have had NO effect on this crime. What they are NOT saying is that these national organizations together conspired to strip public accommodations from the previous years equality bill so as to get a cheap victory at the cost to transgender people.

This cost Ms.Polis very dearly. Its time for the lies to stop. It's time for equality Maryland to lift it's censorship of it facebook page. It's time for gay.com to respect transgender people's wishes.
