Author's Note: I was invited by the UMass Republicans to give this address at a forum at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst on March 11. Due to an organized and highly disruptive demonstration by a mob of socialists, "peace activists," and homosexuals, I was unable to deliver the speech. More on this in a future commentary.In his speech Don Feder provides a detailed overview of "hate crime" legislation and enforcement in the US, exposing the real intent behind those laws, which are more about censorship and social engineering than about actually protecting vulnerable groups from targeted assaults. No wonder the lefties don't want this speech to be heard.
When asked if fascism could ever come to America, Huey Long (the Depression-era governor of Louisiana) replied, “Sure, only here they’ll call it anti-fascism.”
Hate-crimes laws are fascism in the guise of protecting minorities. They’re fascism in crime-prevention drag. They’re fascism in the name of combating bigotry and hatred.

Here's a speech which Don Feder couldn't give, because he was shouted down by a radical leftist mob. (Sounds familiar, doesn't it? Well, what else could you expect at a university campus?)
