South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint can barely contain his "hate" at the Hate Crimes Bill attached to the conference report for 2010 Department of Defense authorization.
The anti-gay conservative says: "Hate crimes legislation has nothing to do with the Defense Department or national security. It actually has nothing to do with crimes or hate. It is very cynical that this bill that funds our soldiers that are fighting for our constitution and our country undermines the principles they are fighting for."
It's standard operating procedure that conservatives deny hate crimes are happening––despite what the headlines and facts say––but is DeMint suggesting our soldiers are "fighting" for the right to gay-bash?
Watch the crazy ON THE JUMP.
