Subject: Who's Killing Us?

Well, a U.S. Senator has finally spoken out against the vicious rampage of hate, which occurred in Pittsburgh. Well no, actually he has not. In fact he has not said anything at all about the rampage by Mr. Taylor, who is African-American. He is only concerned with what happened NEAR Pittsburgh, after Mr. Taylor's rampage against White men who had done nothing to him (except try to repair what was broken at his residence, even though Mr. Taylor didn't work for his rent, but rather received a Social Security check each month). Mr. Taylor's rampage is not unique, far from it. In fact, the acting out of his hate for White people is quite common in the African-American community. It is only his method of doing it in a short time frame that is somewhat special, though not unique. Arlen Specter didn't notice this rampage. He doesn't think it is of any special concern. Only the actions of White people who do not bow to the New World Order are of concern to him. Is it because Senator Specter is Jewish that he acts this way? Is it because he is Zionist that he acts this way? Why doesn't the Fat Man who speaks for the Republican Party on radio across America 15HR's a week explain to us what is going on here? Why has HE not spoken of Mr. Taylor's rampage? For the full story on "African-American" atrocities against White people, go to: and read "The Color of Crime". Then ask yourself, "Why hasn't the news media, and the spokesman of the Republican Party discussed what is included in this report culled from Justice Department statistics?" Do you really know your enemy? 'Racial killing should mobilise US against hate crime' WASHINGTON: A US Senator has said the apparently racially motivated murders of Asian Americans and other minorities near Pittsburgh should mobilise the country against such senseless hate crimes. Taking to the Senate floor, Arlen Specter, a Republican, said the incident on April 28, where "five of my constituents were brutally murdered and one was critically injured in what seems to be a hate crime, has sent shockwaves throughout the conscience of our nation." The shooting rampage by the suspect, Richard Baumhammers, claimed the lives of Anil Thakur, an Indian, Thao Quoc Pham, a Vietnamese American, and Ji-Ye Sun, a Chinese American. A Jewish woman and an African-American man were also killed. Another Asian Indian, Sandeep Patel, remains hospitalised in critical condition. Baumhammers has been charged with four counts of criminal homicide, one count of criminal attempt to commit criminal homicide and seven counts of ethnic intimidation, among others. Specter said, "This senseless rampage that left five people dead and one in critical condition poses some of the most important and vexing law enforcement challenges currently facing our nation." He said "such heinous hate-filled acts of violence divide our communities, intimidate our citizens and poison our collective spirit." The lawmaker said "such vicious attacks are a form of terrorism that threaten the entire nation and undermine the ideals on which we were founded." Specter declared that "America is the great melting pot. People of different races, religion and creed join together from all around the globe seeking freedom-religious freedom, political freedom and economic freedom." "But unfortunately in our society today," he bemoaned, "there are those who harbour animus towards others because of the colour of their skin or the church they attend." Specter asserted that "few crimes tear more deeply at the fabric of our nation than crimes motivated by such hatred." He urged that "we must continue to work towards freeing our nation from such violence, discrimination, hatred and bigotry through education and public awareness." "However, while we work towards this goal," Specter said, "we must ensure that each and every American is protected from crimes based on race, colour, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or disability." Specter pointed out that he was a principal sponsor of the Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 1999, currently circulating in Congress, and, while noting that during his tenure as District Attorney in Philadelphia for eight years he did not like federal encroachment on state jurisdiction, he felt "there are some instances when federal intervention is necessary." "Some of the ugliest instances of violence in our nation have been motivated by hatred based on race, colour, religion, national origin, sexual orientation and disability," he said. "It is in the cases where it is plain that it was a hate crime situation-in these extremely unusual situations-that I believe federal authority ought to be present where it is necessary."
