On Hate Crime

Herected is just one quote from Against Citizenship:

Hate crime legislation covers up the state’s own violent acts against nonnormative peoples and bolsters the prison industrial complex. 

The author is a professor at the University of New Mexico. The book has been praised to the skies. 

Yes, I hate these freaks more than Trump supporters. Because they don’t have the right to be this ignorant and this self-involved.

10 thoughts on “On Hate Crime

  1. There are strong moves to make it a crime to criticize religions or making jokes about “beliefs”. Good news for us who believe in a flat and square Earth, and a geocentric solar system.
    But all the conspiracy theories are beliefs too, and those who deny global warming and the Holocaust are also believers.
    If I would became a dictator, I would make it illegal to deny proofed science, and to advise people to stop taking their medicines or vaccinating their children.
    Also, I would make it criminal to spread so called holy books that endorses pedophilia, and advise people to disregard the Geneva conventions and the UN declaration of human rights – for example, taking civilians as prisoners of war, having sex with prisoners, make them your slaves and so on and on.

  2. “one quote from ”

    How can you read it? I looked up the author’s faculty page and almost died of boredom trying to get through one paragraph.

    The best thing that could happen to this person is having to write at least 10 pages without the word/affix ‘(-)normative’ or any derived forms of that. The mental strain might actually give them a boost and make them less banal.

    • Any sacrifice for my craft. 🙂 This scholar denounces the nation-state more passionately than I denounce Putinoids. The understanding that once the nation-state dies, she’ll be out of a job hasn’t dawned on her. But I’ve got to read this shit to be able to argue with it.

      Now I’m thinking that academic writing madlibs could be fun…

      Or other games suggest themselves like going through this author’s prose and replacing every random nouns with ‘booger’

      “Hate crime legislation covers up the state’s own violent boogers against nonnormative peoples and bolsters the booger industrial complex.”

  5. Regarding hate crimes:

    The 29-year-old man who was violently assaulted alongside his 17-year-old brother told in his interview with Yedioth Ahronoth about the traumatic night outside Paris; ‘I feel hate and anger for not being able to defend myself.’

    http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4927687,00.html

    I am worried after reading ” I want to find him so I can face him again.”

    He says ““The problem in France is that you hear all the time about Jews being assaulted. We need to send a different message today. We need to hear about Jews defending themselves. ”

    Well, we do defend ourselves. In Israel. With IDF and police. This is the real solution, not putting oneself outside of law by searching for a fight and getting murdered by Muslim criminals.
