Joseph Farah's May 13 WorldNetDaily column asserts that the hate-crimes bill "actually offers special protections for pedophiles who are targeted in crimes."
Farah also repeats the right-wing revisionist claim that "'Hate' was not a motivation for" the killers of Matthew Shepard; "'Love' was the motive – love of money, that is, which the Bible says is the root of all evil." Farah's claim ignores the fact that one of his killers used a "gay panic" defense during his trial and relies on trusting the word of convicted killers.
What good is a newsman who tells lies? None that we can think of.
