Last January, the Mayor’s Winter Conference held a meeting on hate crimes and violent extremism. The focus is on the ‘hate ecosystem’ centering on the disruption of school board meetings regarding opposition to critical race theory, spreading disinformation, opposition against racial justice protests, intimation of the LBGT community, extremists running for local office and taking positions as election judges and poll workers, extremists in police departments, and apprehension that a civil war may occur to create a white-ethno state. As you would suspect, there was no mention of BLM and Antifa; it is a political witch hunt. The YouTube link to a short clip capsulizes the delusional hate crime narrative used to justify coercion against the targeted segments of the general public.
The United States Mayor Conference followed up by publishing the “Mayors’ Compact to Combat Hate, Extremism and Bigotry” (linked HERE) in collaboration with the ultra-left-leaning Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The Compact has ten components: blatant oppression to suppress free speech and label users exercising their First Amendment rights as haters and dissidents.
The Mayors’ Compact 10 Components:
- Expressly Rejecting Extremism, White Supremacy and All Forms of Bigotry
- Denouncing All Acts of Hate Wherever They Occur
- Ensuring Public Safety While Protecting Free Speech and Other Basic Constitutional Rights
- Calling for Full-Resourced Law Enforcement and Civil Rights Investigations of Domestic Terrorism and Hate Crimes
- Elevating and Prioritizing Anti-Bias and Anti-Hate Programs in Our Nation’s Schools
- Supporting Targeted Communities and Bringing Together Business Leaders and Civic and Community Leaders to Build Trust
- Celebrating Diversity, Promoting Inclusivity and Challenging Bias
- Promoting Law Enforcement Training on Responding to and Reporting Hate Incidents, Hate Crimes and Domestic Terrorism
- Encouraging Residents in their Communities to Report Hate Incidents and Crimes, Including Hot Lines and Online Tools
- Maintaining Civil Rights Enforcement and Strengthening Hate Crime Laws When Necessary
The Justice Department is concerned about the lack of hate crime reporting to the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), which the FBI relies on. Ironically, NIBRS doesn’t have a category for hate crime hoaxes. The demand for contemporary racism and bigotry incidents grossly exceeds the supply; hoaxes must be manufactured, i.e., Jessie Smollett. Without a hate crime category and the prosecution of hoaxes, hate crime hoaxes stop.
The First Amendment guarantees citizens the right to speak freely about their views, regardless if some consider them impolite, offensive, or unpopular speech. The mayors want to use shame and blame to slander and control the general public while destroying Western culture. At the same time, their cities collapse like mythical Gotham City.
