FBI Launches New “Hate Crimes” Snitching Program

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The FBI apparently has nothing better to do than to turn American against American, and missed that whole pesky Freedom of Speech part of the Bill Of Rights, which is also present in every single U.S. state constitution. And that being mean to someone is not something that crosses state borders. Here’s the Pittsburgh Post Gazette editorial board

The FBI launches new effort against hate crimes

No one likes a snitch.

But there are times when reporting poor behavior or telling the truth to authority is valuable for societal health. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has recognized this fact and has launched a national public awareness campaign calling on everyday citizens to report hate crimes when they see them.

The FBI Pittsburgh field office is joining that effort, and city residents should heed that request. In short, if you see something, say something, to borrow a phrase.

The FBI has defined a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender or gender identity.” Such crimes are disgusting and tear at the country’s social fabric.

Hey, perhaps I’ll report the Post Gazette when they make fun of Christians or white men. Or make nasty remarks about straight people.

Double hey, can we report those who commit fake hate crimes to the FBI? Like this one. Because there is a proliferation of them, which, as that article shows, cause massive problems for those accused. The allegations usually get front page news: when they are proven to be false, they often do not even make it into the news

People should be able to disagree politically or socially without criminally attacking one another. And yet, the stats indicate that they can’t. The FBI has in the past acknowledged that white supremacy and hate groups now account for the largest share of U.S. domestic terrorism, and the local field office has stated that some such groups are alive and active in Western Pennsylvania. Not that such groups are the only perpetrators of hate crimes or cannot themselves be the target, of course.

Words are now criminal. And you can see that this is mean to be an attack on opponents of Democrats, criminalizing their words, deeming all who oppose Democrats white supremacists and hate groups.

Here’s what can be done now: Everyday citizens can take it upon themselves to step up and report when they see something amiss. If the victims themselves are reluctant to report such crimes, then it’s up to the people in their lives or even bystanders to help ensure that justice has its day. (The reporting hotline is 1-800-225-5324, or tips can be submitted at

So, wait, if the “victims” of the so-called crime do not want to report it, do not want to file charges, some rando can now reach out to the FBI and get them involved? What if the victim doesn’t think it’s a crime and/or involved “hate”? Will the snitch be required to testify in court, as required by the Bill of Rights?

The FBI is calling on residents to help them discover and investigate such incidents, as the bureau cannot launch an investigation based on hateful language alone — there must be a threat of violence, a furtherance of an ideology or a federal crime. Now it’s up to residents to step up when they are able.

Sounds like there’s going to be a lot of hoax reports.
