Hastings Demands Protection For Perverts

From the well of the House via C-SPAN and YouTube:

"… That all these philias, fetishes and –isms that were put forward need not live in fear because of who they are, I urge my colleagues to vote in favor of this rule so that we can move this country forward to fully achieving the promise of justice and liberty for all Americans.”

Listen to the list of things that Mr. Hastings demands get protection under this latest hate crimes law. Here are a few items he mentioned:

Apotemnophilia – erotic interest in looking like, being, or sexual contact with amputees.

Asphixiphilia – semi-strangulation as a sexual enhancement.

Autogynophilia – a form of sexual response in biological males characterized by sexual arousal over the idea of being or becoming female.

Chlorophilia – sexual attraction to plants.

Frotteurism – arousal by rubbing against another (usually unsuspecting) person, as in a crowd.

Necrophilia – the sexual attraction to corpses.

Telephone satologia – arousal from  making obscene phone calls.

Gerontophilia – attraction to the aged.

Zoophilia – attraction to animals.

Paedophilia – attraction to children.

Klismaphilia – arousal from enemas.

Toucherism – arousal from surreptitiously touching strangers.

Urophilia – sexual pleasure from urine and urination. This can be from getting urinated on, urinating on others, drinking urine, or watching others do these things.

Is Mr. Hastings jockeying to be the replacement for Justice Souter?

Still, imagine someone suggesting fifty years ago that this would be a bill under serious debate in the US Congress.

He would have been accused of being a rightwing alarmist kook. Or a leftwing comedian (Lenny Bruce, George Carlin).

Look at what has happened to our country, indeed Western Civilization, in the blink of an eye.

(Thanks to Canary for the heads up.)

    Sorry Steve but…….
    “Where is my baseball bat?”
    I wanna knock this one out of the park!!!

    “necrophilia” = loving the DEAD
    Alice Cooper had a song 35 yrs ago about this. (I Love The Dead)

  2. curvyred

    Um – I never heard of many of those “acts”

    I totally disagree with “hate crime” legislation in any form, it is nothing more than an additional penalty for “thoughts”

    It is also not applied equally – especially when the victim of a crime is of the caucasion persuasion and the perp is a minority.

  3. U NO HOO

    Another term limits poster boy.

  4. Fuzzlenutter

    And Liberals Demise,

    Let’s not forget about Alice’s “Cold Ethel” either.

    This ‘special victims’ and ‘thought crimes’ mentality along with PC will be the death of Western Civilization.

  5. beautyofreason

    LOL. Hate crimes laws to protect……sadomasochism?
    What is this country coming to? Have you heard of any “hate crimes” against your local sadomasochist?

    So now I’m intolerant if I disapprove of a brother sleeping with a sister (incest), someone beating someone else to inflict pain for sexual satisfaction (sadomasochism), someone strangling themselves to death to improve an orgasm (erotic asphyxiation), or a man sleeping with a little boy or girl (pedophilia)?

    I could be reading the Constitution wrong, but I don’t see any place where “Justice and liberty for all Americans” includes adults engaging in sexual acts with children.

    NAMBLA must love this guy. Sorry, Hastings!

  6. proreason

    Why isn’t Barneyphilia listed?

  7. oki2

    Wait, did he say “kleptomania” in there? Does that mean if I shoplift something I can say that I have kleptomania and get some protection from my own disorder (uhh wait, not disorder… condition?)? At around 1:00 or so right after… I think it was after Incest (he went too fast for me to keep up)

    • Barbie

      Yes, Hastings did mention kleptomania. He’s so damn dumb he probably thinks it is a sexual act.

  8. proreason

    Seriously, this is what these people are all about.

    Now that they have one of their own in the White House, they are coming out of the woodwork like roaches starving aftter years in a clean room.

    And I’m not just talking about sexual perversions either.

    They want your money, they want your children, they want to stuff themselves with bacon and candy, they want to smoke your drapes.

    They are out of the closet now. You can see it every day in a million ways.

  9. Helena

    Someone really should alert the Greens to the menace of Chlorophiliacs. We could have a war on our hands.

    But my favorite thing here is, after going throught he list, he says “…This is serious business. Mr. Speaker, we can’t legislate law, but we can legislate against hate…”

    Um, he’s in the legislature.

  10. Confucius

    Aren’t Democrats protected enough?

    • catie

      Yeah they are. Debbie Wasserman Schultz though was indignant when a Rep. from IN tried to include acts of hatred against the military in that bill. She said that is a slap in the face to those who are real victims. Guess old Schnoz Debbie hasn’t read the news that there have been military people singled out and attacked for being in uniform. However, it’s usually in places like Seattle, SF, etc leftist bastions of “tolerance”.

    • Right of the People

      I wish they were on the Endangered Species list.

  11. Enthalpy

    Can anyone come up with a decent reason for the existence of this human being?

    • U NO HOO


      If there wasn’t a G*d we would have to invent one. Notice I didn’t say her or him. In case someone is reading this.

      I believe G*d invented liberals and other fools to test us who want to get to heaven.

      If we didn’t believe in an after life and a devil what’s the use of trying.

      That’s all.

    • SonoraRebel

      Actually… No. What’s scary is that this nutcase is actually being paid… and was elected in the first place. The lunatics are truly running the asylum. God help this Republic.

  12. proreason

    Slightly off target, but FINALLY a conservative has published a real, commonsense idea to counter the INSANITY that comes from the left on a daily basis.

    John Hawkins from Pajamas Media (and who has a great web-site of his own) has published an article that says quite simply, let’s use the left’s own tactics against them.

    For example, why was Joe the Plumber’s life ruined for asking a simple question, yet nobody investigated the lives of the the feces-encrusted “journalists” and “government officials” who were responsible for that crime.


    and here is John’s blog


    John writes consistently well and is always entertaining.

    • Enthalpy

      Good idea!

    • Liberals Demise

      Good posts …. thanks pr!!

    • Steve

      “John Hawkins from Pajamas Media (and who has a great web-site of his own) has published an article that says quite simply, let’s use the left’s own tactics against them.”

      Sorry, but I don’t think this is such a truly novel idea.

      “For example, why was Joe the Plumber’s life ruined for asking a simple question, yet nobody investigated the lives of the the feces-encrusted “journalists” and “government officials” who were responsible for that crime.”

      Well, for one thing the people who investigated Joe the plumber were in government jobs that are now the sinecures of the Democrat party. Add to that, Democrats have no regard for privacy laws.

      Without those advantages, we here did as much as we could to expose the people who were responsible for illegally investigating Mr. Wurzelbacher and those smearing him:

    • proreason

      I wasn’t saying that you don’t do your part Steve. You are one of the few.

      But as a whole, the opposition is woefully unwilling to fight back.

      And the example of Joe the Plumber is a small one.

      The real tragedy is that the political leaders of the Republican party are unwilling to take strong positions. How Obama has never been called out on his radical past is a travesty, for example. Why aren’t Republican’s in Congress fighting to get in front of the camera with illustrations of the ridiculous $100M “spending cut”. Why aren’t congressmen calling The Moron out for sarcastically making fun of a million people who properly and peacefully protested April 15. And why aren’t there screams of outrage about the shockingly vulgar “teabagging” smear.

      And on and on and on.

      So I still say good for John Hawkins. His comments are a helluva lot stonger and braver than 99% of the conservative commentary I read, and I read all the primary people. Generally what you get is correct analysis, frequently insightful and sometimes amusing, but weak tea as far as gigging the politicians to speak out. Republicans are like Roman intellectuals about the year 300.

      By and large, this website has more people who speak out more strongly than any other I pay attention to. Kudos to everyone here who says it like it is.

      Meanwhile the barbarians continue storming the gates.

  13. JohnMG

    Judge Hastings should be in jail for taking bribes. Instead, he’s in congress. The only obvious difference between prison and congress is that there are no bars on the congressional offices…..and there should be!

    • Liberals Demise

      The third drawer on the “left” side of his desk is probably a stocked Ripple and Wild Irish Rose wine bar.
      Does this count?

  14. Alcee Hastings(D) is a disbarred judge, Hastings not only had solicited a bribe, but also repeatedly lied during his trial, who simply turned his race-baiting career as a Carter(D) appointee into a race-baiting career in the House of Representatives.

  15. BannedbytheTaliban

    Hate crimes should fall under double jeopardy exclusion. They charge/punish people not only for their crimes, but their intent as well. To think a crime is any more or less heinous because it is perpetrated against a person because of their minority status seriously undermines the intent of law and equal protect for those not covered. This really should come before the SCOTUS. However, Hastings blindly listed the intent of hate crime legislation:

    we cannot legislate love, but we can legislate against hate

    That is they can force compliance to their own societal view while criminalizing any opposing or dissenting opinions; thus making the intent of such legislation willful suppression of free speech or freedom of religion (if objections to such behaviors are based on religious teachings).

    So will persecuting someone in a court who is a pedophile be considered a hate crime if this legislation passes, and won’t it undermine all sexual based laws? Why weren’t rapists or polygamist included in his list? After all, aren’t they just another form of sexual deviance?

    • JohnMG

      Hastings ascribes to the same school of thought as did Frank Marshall Davis. And as we all know, a now famous individual who also studied at the knee of Davis now occupies the Oval Office. They are all cut from the same cloth and are now consolidating their grip on the levers of power. All with the sanction of folks who should know better…..and don’t seem to care.

  16. BatK

    seriously disgusting… apparently anything is a “hate” crime unless it’s prepetrated against “Right Wing Extremists” (ie: people who love America and the values it was founded upon). Liberal’s “tolerance” = accept and legitimize my aberrant behavior/beliefs and value them as equal to your own. If not, you will be castigated, persecuted, maligned, and quite possibly targeted for acts of violence. Because the only people we “tolerate” are those who agree with us.

    What amazes me is how the Libs bend over backwards to deny what Islam is all about… the only time Ahmadinejad got boo’ed at Columbia University was when he dared to speak out against homosexuality (apparently killing Jews and denying the Holocaust is a ok…just don’t bash the gays). Even if you go with the old KGB logic of “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” the libs don’t get that Islam is no friend to their own humanistic amoral agenda…and unlike Christians and Jews who actually VALUE human life, these guys have proven they have no issue blowing up themselves, their children, or anyone else.

    • BatK

      Sorry to rant… the idiocy of it all is just astounding

    • Liberals Demise

      It is VERY disturbing to me, BatK!!

      For this pervert to stand and make a plea for justice for every perversion known to man is mind boggling. I’m sure Barney choked on his hot dog for breakfast this morning.

    • Barbie

      BatK you are right. Who was it who said the right wing is the only group Obama looks like he’d LOVE to waterboard. And worse. It’s true.

    • BatK

      When you get to the place where you realize that there is no LOGICAL way for these people to support the things they do (on camera), the blinders come off and the DECEPTION becomes crystal clear. Again, this isn’t because “tree-huggers” (and who knows what the heck THAT means anymore!) are some poor persecuted group, it’s because they are seeking LEGITIMACY for their perversions while simultaneously preventing anyone with half a shred of common sense or decency from being able to call PERVERSION what it is.

  17. canary

    What’s racist in the hate-crime law, white people are totally exempt from it’s protection of the hate-crime. It leads to a free-for-all targeting of white people. Time to demand reclassifing as American Beige as minority.

    Chlorophilia – sexual attraction to plants.
    Frotteurism – arousal by rubbing against another (usually unsuspecting) person, as in a crowd.

    hmm. MO who especially enjoys children slaves growing plants and could not stop from being the first to touch the Queen of England.

    as for BHO
    Frotteurism, Toucherism – arousal by rubbing against another (usually unsuspecting) person, as in a crowd. Have you noticed the surprised faces on the comie’s when embraced by Obomi.

    the really bad ones, start with just a touch.

    • Liberals Demise

      I do remember there was a lot of fainting going on during the “Socializing of Amerika” campaign last year. (A touch here….a rub there)

    • Barbie

      Hate crimes legislation is racist. And unconstitutional. Each of the groups Hastings mentions feeds their fetish off of a helpless person. The helpless person is the actual victim in these acts of sexual aggressiom (with the exception of plants although I don’t want perverts getting off on my plants, and for masochists who like being hurt).

      Libs always protect the guilty and go after the innocent. Always.

  18. canary

    Does this mean perverts will have to take down their sex offender signs, the ones you can barely see by their doors with grass grown over. Internet showed me 5 registered sex offenders addresses right by me. One back yard up to both park and elementary school. One backed yard up to High School property, one across street from same H.S. Another one block and half from home. All signs were nearly invisable to see. Then right before school starts and I notice the bus stop is the exact address of a block and half away that had sign. I get on it with the school transportation, do a petition, meanwhile, after the first day, the sex-offender removes his sign. Guess he had something on his mind. Got the stop moved to safe spot where majority of children lived.
    The law finally passed that sex offenders could not live so close to parks, schools. It was a long battle do to the “Civil Rights Liberty Union defending the sex-offenders rights, hardship to move, and hardship to find a home that met the new regulations. They also fought the signs. Recall a small town judge that ordered their doors be marked, was faught too.
    The Hate-Crime law has good intentions, but bog the system down, as to arguing if it’s a hate crime. A black child that beats up a white child can not be argued it is a hate-crime. A white child beats a black child and it’s argued to death as to if it’s a hate crime. An eyewitness to an assault is not enough. They have to find more witnesses to put it in a category of hate-crime.

  19. U NO HOO

    “Chlorophilia – sexual attraction to plants.”

    Wow, that’s going Green!

  20. rakkasan

    What I want to know is Steve’s decision-making process in placing chlorophilia in bold but not necrophilia.

    And is there such a thing as chlorophillia necrophillia? Sex with dead plants?

    I can’t believe this is what our Congress has been reduced to. Roman Empire, I hope to avoid joining thee soon.

    • Steve

      “What I want to know is Steve’s decision-making process in placing chlorophilia in bold but not necrophilia.”

      It was just a matter of highlighting terms that I thought were less familiar.

  21. canary

    Hastings has a bad boy record. Aside his latest bill HR 645 to herd Americans to 6 regional military posts, if needed.


    1981, Charged with accepting bribary 21 counts of racketerring, aquitted after his co-conspirator, William Borders, refused to testify in court (resulting in a jail sentence for Borders, later pardoned by “Clinton” last day of presidency).

    1988, the Dem U.S. House of Reps impeached Hastings for bribery and perjury by a vote of 413-3. Convicted in 1989 by US Senate, 6th fed judge in history removed from office by the Senate. “Arlen Spector” voted to aquit him.

    The Senate had the option to forbid Hastings from ever seeking federal office again, but did not do so,
    Hastings was elected to the US House of Representatives 1992, Rep FL 23rd dt
    Member of the Congressional Black Caucus, etc. Close with Nancy Pelosi

    On September 24, 2008, Hastings regarding Republican Vice- Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, speaking in D.C. to a conference sponsored by the National Jewish Democratic Council, said in his ignorant lingo

    “If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention. Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through.”

  22. rakkasan

    At 1:02 does he actually say incest?

  23. GL0120

    You have to admire Hasting’s attempt to name all possible classifications of Democrats but there was one important category he left out – Aholephilia; the love of Democrats.

  24. I was going to make a snide remark—”figures this tool is from Florida, home of the murderer of Jessica Lunsford and Caylee Anthony”—but wackjobs are everywhere. I’m surrounded by them here in kumbaya Kalifornia.

  25. bobbys

    Strange no mention of “teabagging”

  26. VMAN

    Chlorophilia? Well I do know this rose bush but it can get rough at times. Thorns you know.

  27. Rusty Shackleford

    What I’m seeing here is that vain attempt by a fringe entity (pervs) who somehow see all the “issues” that are come to light in the past 100 days and, for fear of missing the “rights boat”, are voicing their desires before that ship sails. In other words, they are desperate.

    Sadly, the way US law has been forming over the past decades with Supreme court justices choosing to be activists vs. interpreters of law, the emotional parts of the brain have caused severe damages to our logical, though often difficult system.

    The perverts in our society, in an equally perverted attempt at legitimization, will grasp at every straw and wisp of smoke that allows them to voice their “argument”.

    Bearing in mind that according to many psychologists, sexual perversion is a matter of type and of degree, thus self-control becomes paramount.

    There are people who engage in non-standard sexual practices and I basically have no problem with that if it’s 1) consensual and 2) doesn’t hurt anybody and 3) doesn’t involve an otherwise innocent person; a victim if you will.

    Basically what people do in the privacy of their own homes is none of my business.

    But having said that, activities that involve the spreading of diseases, either through irresponsibility or intentionally, acts that harm others, or animals, etc, are not to be tolerated. What we run into here is again, the definition of pornography. And with that in mind, what was pornographic in 1890 might be considered ridiculous by today’s standards.

    Still, many things that humans do are considered “abnormal”. To that end, the horror that Jessica Lunsford went through as have countless children throughout history…along with catholic priests committing disgusting acts on young boys, etc. And on and on and on. These people who commit these acts are, in my opinion, wanton and lacking in self-control as well as needing mental help. But inasmuch as they are “wired” this way, there is little that can be done.

    Most people who have been affected by sexual predatory crimes are aware of the fact that the perpetrators are irreparable. I have always maintained that they need to be put away. Their very freedom allows them to stalk, seek and then attack their victims. Thus, they need to be locked away. Medications have proven ineffective at best. Counseling: Same story. They always want to commit the act. Castration is of no use….they are not getting gratification from using their own sexual organ, per se, but by violating another entity be it a child, animal, what-have-you. They would use anything at their disposal to complete the act of perversion.

    It is mental illness.

    But for a fringe group to use the same stale argument that “I’m made this way….you MUST accept me” is pathetic, weak, cowardly and, well, frankly, sick.

    I, as a free man in my society have the RIGHT to NOT ACCEPT anything I so choose. You cannot legislate that which I accept and that which I do not. I pay a tax to register my car, but I do not ACCEPT it. I do it because the law requires it, not because I choose to do it. But if I want to drive to work…I have to “go along”.

    But I do NOT have to go along with your sickness as a legitimate “lifestyle”

    It was mentioned in another thread that the “tail wagging the dog” is what’s happening here. But by demanding I accept some perverts illness as a “lifestyle” is like telling me that “It’s ok to do drugs now because they are safer than they used to be”. Equally beyond the realm of a logical premise.

    Honestly, I cannot accept someone’s sexual perversion any more than I can accept “a little murder now and again”.

    But what really gets me angry is the DEMAND to be ACCEPTED. I ain’t gotta accept diddly. So as for queers and blacks with bad attitudes, and rap music and gay parades and friggin’ “Earth day”…I don’t accept them, either. You can have all the parades you want. You can splatter it all over the internet that whales die because somebody cranked up their SUV and I will ACCEPT that I also have the right to block it out, ignore it, and go about my business, thankyouverymuch.

    So go ahead perverts, unite all you want. Chances are you will simply identify yourselves to the rest of the world and open yourself up to ridicule and shame which, is as it should be.

    Yes, too bad you were “born that way”. But here’s a news flash…I was born the way I am and I don’t like you. If not in particular then on general principle. You make me sick. And you make me sicker when you claim to have the “right” to act out your “lifestyle”. And…out of guilt for being the way you are, you have to band together to find strength because you definitely can’t find strength on your own. No, you have to yell it in everybody’s face. Why is that?

    Do you call it a “demand to be heard”?

    Well guess what–I demand you shut the f up. But seeing as how you have the right to free speech which I respect…Not you, but the right…..then I have the right to IGNORE you.

    Clearly this post is not doing that. But even I get so fed up with the whining…the constant claim that you aren’t treated fairly. But you have to step out of yourself for one precious minute and realize that FAIR means for everyone….not just for you. YOU have the notion that fair means having special laws to protect you, your kind and all like you. That is not “fair”. It is discriminatory by its very definition. Same for “hate crimes”. OMG…what a huge steaming pile that is. If ever the government let us down badly….that was it. The invention of the “hate crime”.

    So you perverts take your wants and your demands for “equal” treatment and shove them up your behind. You would probably like that so it’s kind of a wash, isn’t it?

    Honestly, I’ve got to organize a “White Heterosexual Normal Conservative Pride Day March” If they won’t hear me, I’ll yell at them and MAKE them hear me….Yeah…that’s the right way to go about it.


    • The Redneck

      When I was a kid, my Pa and I were planning to apply for a permit for a float in the local parade, for the “Fans of Large-Breasted Asian Nymphomaniac Contortionists Club.” After all, if they can go through a massive production letting the world know about their sexual preferences, why can’t we?

      Yeah, saying you were born that way is like saying you can’t treat someone’s cancer because God obviously intended them to have cancer. But as far as I’m concerned, the supporters are worse. They can best be compared to someone who goes up to a guy with OCD and tells him that not only is washing his hands a hundred times a day not a sign of anything wrong at all, but that if anybody tells him different it’s because they want him to get sick and die.

      “Frotteurism – arousal by rubbing against another (usually unsuspecting) person, as in a crowd.”?
      Seriously, at this rate, rape’s gonna be legalized.

      I was thinkin’ the same thing. Comin’ soon, ladies–if you’re in a crowd, some complete stranger sticks his hand down your pants, and you deck him…. you are now guilty of a hate crime.

  28. ptat

    Another new low for Congress! Just when I thought Sheila Jackson Lee must be the stupidest person on the planet, along comes this “uh,uh,duh,uh,uh,duh”…Alcee Hastings! Are these guys trying to out stupid each other? Folks, I believe this display of profound idiocy has made it official: we now live in an IDIOCRACY.

  29. Squito

    May as well legalize coprophilia. We already knew the White House was full of sh#theads.

    “Frotteurism – arousal by rubbing against another (usually unsuspecting) person, as in a crowd.”?

    Seriously, at this rate, rape’s gonna be legalized.

  30. VMAN

    I believe that the libs think if they create complete anarchy they can step in an rebuild the country the way that they want. History show that other totalitarian governments have not tolerated behavior like this and given the chance these thugs wouldn’t either.
