Two teens are facing hate crime charges in the beating of a transgender woman at a McDonald's, an attack that was caught on video and posted online.And this, isn't?
The attackers also tattooed a phrase on his chest that resembles 'I like little boys,' police said.
Capt. Jody Suit, spokesman for the Del City Police Department, said police plan to recommend charges of assault and battery, maiming by disfigurement and kidnapping.When you tattoo something like "I like little boys" on a man's chest, it's pretty clear you are attacking a person's sexual orientation -- whether real or imagined.
Where's the outrage? Where's the charge of hate crime? Where are the calls for remedial action, sensitivity training etc.? The silence from the left -- those who insist on equality based on sexual orientation as a universal human right -- is deafening. Not. A. Peep. The only thing I've seen is, "if they did it because he is disabled, it's a hate-crime".
The left's problems are these. First, they don't approve of pederasty, so they're not going to support it regardless of their espoused principles. Secondly, they probably know instinctively that if one sexual orientation can be disordered, so can another. This opens the door to a debate they don't want to have and which cannot help their cause. Thirdly, it nullifies their mindless accusations of hate -- in rejecting a sexual orientation they now become bigoted haters along with the rest of us.
The next time the left throws "equality" in your face, don't believe them. Unless they step up to the plate on this one, they don't believe it themselves.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
