The mayor of Lancaster, California, has been accused of a federal hate crime.
No, he didn’t burn a cross on anybody’s lawn. He didn’t assault anyone. He didn’t spray-paint swastikas or racial slurs on anybody’s car.
Here’s what he did: the hideous crime itself. In a speech to an audience of church pastors, he actually spoke the dreadful words, “We are a growing Christian community.”
The thought police swung right into action.
