Sarah Parshall Perry Explains Hidden Agenda in Left’s New Hate Crime Bill
The Senate is expected to vote soon on a bill touted as targeting hate crimes against Asian Americans. The legislation, authored by Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and Rep. Grace Meng, D-N.Y., has not received widespread conservative support.
Why would Republicans not support a bill to address hate crimes? Because the bill's agenda extends far beyond its name, says Sarah Parshall Perry, a legal fellow in the Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at The Heritage Foundation. (The Daily Signal is Heritage's multimedia news organization.)
Perry joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to discuss the progressive aims in the bill and the similarities between the so-called COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act and Democrats' hotly contested Equality Act. Perry also discusses an important federal court victory for free speech on college campuses.
Also on today’s show, Kelsey Bolar, senior policy analyst at Independent Women’s Forum and senior news producer at The Daily Signal, explains why she is concerned about United Airlines’ announcement that 50% of new pilots it trains either will be women or people of color.
