Hate Speech: Anything Jews Hate to Hear
by Edgar J. Steele

January 9, 2004

"Congress shall make no law...abridging the freedom of speech..."

-- US Constitution, First Amendment (1791)

"Freedom of speech means that you shall not do something to people either for the views they
express, or the words they speak or write."

-- Hugo Black, US Supreme Court Justice, "One Man's Stand for Freedom" (1963)

"The truth hurts."

-- Proverb

Free speech is a funny kind of concept. Used to be, free speech was anything that didn't
physically hurt others. Don't yell "Fire!" in a packed theatre, for example, unless there really
is a fire, of course. Truth always won out then.

Then laws developed about libel and slander, where words could hurt one's ability to make a living
or move freely in the world. Again, truth always won out - if you called someone a whore and could
prove they had sex indiscriminately, you went free.

Now we see speech laws morphing into bans on "hate speech." Problem is, the further into the
rhetorical woods we go, the murkier the visibility becomes. And truth no longer provides a

Today we focus on one's intent with the current breed of American hate crime laws. For example,
blacks who say "nigger" are just funnin' around with their homies. Whites who say "nigger" are
racist bigot crackers and put in jail. I have a client out of jail right now, pending his appeal
for that very "crime." See my essay, "Attorney for the Damned" for an overview of his "crime"

What's more, today's hate crime laws protect only certain groups of people: blacks, jews,
homosexuals, women, certain minorities - after all, it is still ok to tell the most reprehensible
jokes about lawyers (I'm one), rednecks (I'm one) and whites (I'm one), but when was the last time
you heard a Rastus and Liza joke?

Like today's hate crime laws, tomorrow's hate speech laws also will protect only certain groups of
people, jews in particular.

Tomorrow already is here in Canada, Germany, England, Italy and so many other Western countries.
It almost is here in America. It soon will be, if the ADL has its way.

And, just as the truth of one's comments no longer matters, mere intent no longer is the core
issue. Hate speech laws focus upon the effect one's comments have, regardless of one's intent.

Hate speech is hurt speech. The truth hurts, in other words. And, like a sword, it can hurt in
both directions.

Just ask Nusrat Hussein, a Canadian resident who publishes a small newspaper for his local Muslim

You see, Mr. Hussain had the temerity to reprint my essay, "It Wasn't Arabs"
http://www.conspiracypenpal.com/columns/arabs.htm in his paper, "The Miracle," which has a
circulation of about 2,500 in and around Vancouver, British Columbia.

Now they want to put Mr. Hussain in prison just for printing my little diatribe: Muslim newspaper
accused of spreading hate http://www.cbc.ca/storyview/CBC/2004/01/07/publish040107 This has
become a huge affair in Canada, with radio, TV and the press converging on poor Mr. Hussain.
Imagine what they would like to do to me.

"It Wasn't Arabs" has developed a life of its own, it seems. It began as a personal rant, then
developed into a laundry list of complaints which can be laid at the doorsteps of jews around the
world. Here is an excerpt:

It wasn't Arabs who sued to remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance - it was jews.
It wasn't Arabs who sued to remove the Ten Commandments from that Alabama courthouse, had Judge
Moore removed from the bench and now seek to disbar him - it is jews.
It isn't Arabs who sue to remove nativity scenes from public venues - it is jews.
It isn't Arabs who erect menorahs in public venues in place of crosses - it is jews.
It wasn't Arabs who sued to remove group prayer from public schools - it was jews.
It wasn't Arabs suing to remove decorative lights from schools at Christmas - it was jews.
It isn't Arabs who refuse to allow children to say grace over their school lunches - it is jews.

Nearly one hundred points like these, delivered just like these. And it has gone around the world
again and again. Glad to see I am making a difference in the fight against tyranny and injustice.

Never mind that everything in it has been proven true, time and again. What matters is that some
jewish feelings got hurt. The truth hurts. But it shouldn't hurt the truth teller. Unless the
truth being told is about jews, goes the new/old conventional wisdom, then the rules are different,
just as we see around the world, day after day.

Recently, in "Tell a Joke, Go to Jail" (http://www.conspiracypenpal.com/columns/rant.htm), I wrote
about a law which had been passed by Hungary's democratically-elected Parliament which stipulated
a two-year prison term for "someone who publicly insults a Jew."
http://www.fpp.co.uk/online/03/12/Hungary_FreeSpeech.html What's more, if the insult amounted to
an expression of "hatred," the sentence went up to three years! Fortunately, at the last moment,
Hungary's President declined to sign the bill. It will be back, though, and it will be passed

Think about it for a moment: two years in prison for publicly insulting a jew in Hungary!
Regardless of intent. They just have to have their little jew feelings hurt. Add a year if you
mean it!

Now my essay, "It Wasn't Arabs," has some Canadian jews in high places hyperventilating. "Free
speech does not mean hate speech, and I think this article clearly is hate speech," said Nisson
Goldman of the CJC. That is CJC, as in the Canadian Jewish Congress. They are the guys that are
demanding Mr. Hussain be prosecuted.

It is ironic that "It Wasn't Arabs" actually was inspired by the CJC itself! It began with an
email exchange I had with CJC's Executive Director, Bernie Farber, back in October, wherein I
played off his relegating clearly provable truths to the category of rumors. The piece knocked
around in my mind for a month or so before I actually wrote it. Here's the reply I sent to Mr.
Farber which actually served as the genesis for "It Wasn't Arabs":

"Ah, it's always great to hear from you, Bernie!

"You know, I've given this considerable thought and decided that you are absolutely correct. In
fact, henceforth, I intend to adopt your way of thinking:

"I'm not going to believe any of the stupid rumors I hear about jews being gassed during WWII.

"I'm not going to believe any of the stupid rumors I hear about jews being burned in ovens during

"I'm not going to believe any of the stupid rumors I hear about 6 million jews dying during WWII,
especially since the total European jewish population actually increased.

"I'm not going to believe any of the stupid rumors I hear about jews being just like everybody
else, just with a different religion.

"I'm not going to believe any of the stupid rumors I hear about jews being members of a religion or
culture, rather than a distinct race.

"I'm not going to believe any of the stupid rumors I hear about jews being friends of Christians.

"I'm not going to believe any of the stupid rumors I hear about jews not having disproportionate
sway in America's government.

"Finally, I'm certainly not going to believe any of the stupid rumors I hear about Israel being
America's best friend.

"BTW, Bernie, how is it that "your type" gets away with your brand of hate speech, directed at my
"type" from up there in the land of tolerance? Especially, considering you are the high muckety
muck of the "Canadian Jewish Congress?" There are none so intolerant as those who preach

Showing a rare measure of restraint, my buddy Bernie had no further response for me.

We have seen how free speech in the world has been whittled away, bit by bit, going from
prohibiting harm to punishing mere intent - and intent regarding only certain people. We see the
next iteration in America being hate speech bans, the touchstone for which is the effect one's
speech has on another's feelings. That's for tomorrow. What about the day after that?

Remember who is pushing all this censorship. Jews like Bernie Farber, of the CJC, now on the trail
of poor Mr. Hussain, whose crime was printing an essay that told the truth. Because jewish
feelings were hurt.

Let's not forget who took over Russia early last century. American jews went to Russia and
overthrew the Tsar, using American jewish banker money. One of the first things they did was to
outlaw antisemitism, the very thing that is being attempted in America today. Before they were
done, over 20 million white Russian Christians were slaughtered (over 40 million, if you believe
Alexander Solzhenitsyn) by the Russian communist jews, people who started out by seeking to stop
expressions of antisemitism, because jewish feelings were getting hurt.

US President Harry Truman, who presided over the end of WWII and its aftermath: "The Jews, I find,
are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or
Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[ersons] as long as the Jews get special
treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has
anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog." (Harry Truman's personal diary,

Lest you think Russia's to be an isolated experience, consider the following from jewish scripture:
"Extermination of the Christians is a necessary sacrifice." (Zohar, Shemoth).

Hate speech laws in action, ladies and gentlemen. They are coming to America next.

Already, the imprisonments have begun, even in America, albeit by twisting and subverting other
laws. Some people have died, too, but their deaths falsely are attributed to other causes.

Truly, hate speech simply means anything that jews hate to hear. That's why we have to have jews
to identify it for us.

This is just the beginning. The beginning of what could well become wholesale slaughter. How many
will lose all that they have? How many will be sent to the new American gulags? How many will be
murdered and "disappeared" in America before we rise up and throw off this tyranny, just as
Russia's most recent generation finally is doing?

How many, before we say no to the new laws being pressed upon us?

How many?

New America. An idea whose time has come.
