Hate Crimes quotes by Jaime Allison Parker
#1. He had not joined in on the laughter or even on the beating. Violence of any sort horrified him. Nevertheless, he stood by while Mike, their leader, drove a boot down on Joe's hand. The hideous cracking sound of breaking bones came into his mind and a helpless shudder ran through him. Joe, whose high piercing scream against the autumn skies of indifference, replayed in his memory with shrill agony. Several times, he had shouted: "He's had enough! Let up on him!" Which earned him looks of contempt from the others. They had left the kid there, screaming in that back alley. He remembered trying to drown those screams out of his mind. #Quote by Jaime Allison Parker
Hate Crimes quotes by R. Scott Colglazier
#2. This powerful presence of diversity, however, sometimes overwhelms people, and they begin thinking that diversity really doesn't matter or, worse, they overreact and become entrenched, angrily guarding what they perceive as their piece of the social turf. Why is it, after all, that in spite of the growing diversity in our culture, we see a rise in hate crimes, a rise in militia movements, a rise in heated, if not hateful, diatribes over the airwaves? Why the backlash of resentment? You would think that white supremacy groups would be a thing of the past. But, tragically, they continue to exist. Why has the world become more dangerous and not less? #Quote by R. Scott Colglazier
Hate Crimes quotes by Nenia Campbell
#3. I was cyber-bullied before all those Myspace-related suicides, so my school principal wasn't really impressed when my mom complained about what was happening to me on my Xanga blog and on AIM chat.
"Get your life sorted out, you fucking scitzo [sic] dyke tranny bitch," one comment might say.
Another comment would say something like, "I know she's reading this, she's so pathetic."
And, perhaps most frightening of all: "I'm going to fuck you up until your mother bleeds. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Hate Crimes quotes by Quentin R. Bufogle
#4. The Catholic Church standing in "solidarity" with members of the LGBT community while condemning their behavior as "sinful" is a little like attempting to stand with two feet in one shoe. "Love the sinner, hate the sin" sounds really high-minded until you realize the only sin committed was being born different. #Quote by Quentin R. Bufogle
Hate Crimes quotes by Douglas Wilson
#5. Every culture has blasphemy laws. They are not always called that, but no society allows citizens to rail against the reigning deity. In our pluralistic times, these blasphemy laws are called "hate crimes" legislation, among other euphemisms, but they are really religious protections to keep the reigning god, demos, from being blasphemed. #Quote by Douglas Wilson
Hate Crimes quotes by James Comey
#6. Hate crimes impact not just individuals but entire communities. When a family is attacked because of the color of their skin, it's not just the family that feels violated, but every resident of that neighborhood. #Quote by James Comey
Hate Crimes quotes by Kweisi Mfume
#7. Hate radio, hate speech, hate groups, hate crimes really don't fit in, in the America that we know today. #Quote by Kweisi Mfume
Hate Crimes quotes by Janet Reno
#8. Hate crimes based on sexual orientation are among the three top reported hate crimes after race and religion, ... Our laws should not ignore that reality. #Quote by Janet Reno
Hate Crimes quotes by Tao Lin
#9. Focusing on being a person instead of an Asian or an [anything] seems to promote a worldview that encourages people to treat others based on what each person has specifically done in their life, which seems like it would reduce such things as war, racism, unfairness, "hate crimes," [other things most people feel aversion toward]. #Quote by Tao Lin
Hate Crimes quotes by William J. Clinton
#10. We have seen a man dragged to death in Texas simply because he was black. A young man murdered in Wyoming simply because he was gay. In the last year alone, we've seen the shootings of African Americans, Asian Americans, and Jewish children simply because of who they were. This is not the American way. We must draw the line. Without delay, we must pass the Hate Crimes Prevention Act and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. And we should reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Hate Crimes quotes by Aberjhani
#11. The realization of dreams, like every battle for freedom, has always required compromise to one degree or another. When the result of a concession, however, is the mutilation of your soul or the cancellation of someone else's future, then it may be said the desired goal was corrupted or destroyed rather than attained. #Quote by Aberjhani
Hate Crimes quotes by Steven Pinker
#12. Positive legacy of the 1960s was the revolutions in civil rights, women's rights, children's rights, and gay rights, which began to consolidate power in the 1990s as the baby boomers became the establishment. Their targeting of rape, battering, hate crimes, gay-bashing, and child abuse reframed law-and-order from a reactionary cause to a progressive one, and their efforts to make the home, workplace, schools, and streets safer for vulnerable groups (as in the feminist "Take Back the Night" protests) made these environments safer for everyone. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Hate Crimes quotes by Cher
#13. Hate crimes are the scariest thing in the world because these people really believe what they're doing is right. #Quote by Cher
Hate Crimes quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#14. They hate you not because of what you have done but because of who you are; you are different from who they are, and you are occupying the ground they want for themselves. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Hate Crimes quotes by Margaret Cho
#15. Let's not hate ourselves. We are all we have ... I have been a longtime perpetrator of hate crimes against myself, and I am turning myself in. I have had enough. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Hate Crimes quotes by Patrick Califia-Rice
#16. Sex discrimination and hate crimes against women don't come from the leather community or its pornography. They occur within contexts like industrial capitalism and marriage that most people take for granted as if they had always existed, like gravity or continental drift. If feminism is going to change the world, it has to focus its critical lens on what most people think is normal, not on what most people think is abnormal. #Quote by Patrick Califia-Rice
Hate Crimes quotes by Adrienne Rich
#17. White hate crimes, white hate speech. I still try to claim I wasn't brought up to hate. But hate isn't the half of it. I grew up in the vast encircling presumption of whiteness - that primary quality of being which knows itself, its passions, only against an otherness that has to be dehumanized. I grew up in white silence that was utterly obsessional. Race was the theme whatever the topic. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Hate Crimes quotes by Tammy Bruce
#18. Group dynamics and the decision to sacrifice the individual for the group are the first steps in a march down the road to Thought Crimes (euphemistically termed Hate Crimes) and totalitarianism in its purest form. #Quote by Tammy Bruce
Hate Crimes quotes by Andrena Sawyer
#19. I can't bring myself to watch yet another video, not because I don't care, but because we're all just a few videos away from becoming completely desensitized. The public execution of Black folks will never be normal. #Quote by Andrena Sawyer
Hate Crimes quotes by Jonathan Rauch
#20. It is no solution to define words as violence or prejudice as oppression, and then by cracking down on words or thoughts pretend that we are doing something about violence and oppression. No doubt it is easier to pass a speech code or hate-crimes law and proclaim the streets safer than actually to make the streets safer, but the one must never be confused with the other ... Indeed, equating "verbal violence" with physical violence is a treacherous, mischievous business. #Quote by Jonathan Rauch
Hate Crimes quotes by Kay Whitlock
#21. Sentencing enhancements won't get police to investigate crimes they don't take seriously to begin with. They won't stop police from harassing trans women on the street because they assume all trans women are sex workers. They won't have any effect against police officers who believe they won't be held accountable. They won't sway the minds of jurors who think 'I killed her because she was trans' is an adequate excuse. Sentencing enhancements will allow them to dole out harsher punishments against the people they think are more deserving. And we already know that the legal system sees people of color, women, sex workers, immigrants, and the homeless as more deserving of punishment. (Tobi Hill-Meyer of COLAGE (Children of Lesbians and Gays Everywhere), "Disposable People," November 11, 2008, http://nodesignation.com) #Quote by Kay Whitlock
Hate Crimes quotes by Noam Chomsky
#22. Take any country that has laws against hate crimes, inspiring hatred and genocide and so on. The first thing they would do is ban the Old Testament. There's nothing like it in the literary canon that exalts genocide, to that extent. And it's not a joke either. Like where I live, New England, the people who liberated it from the native scourge were religious fundamentalist lunatics, who came waving the holy book, declaring themselves to be the children of Israel who are killing the Amalekites, like God told them. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Hate Crimes quotes by Richard Puz
#23. Why, God? You made man in your own image. Why then do so many lack good sense? And why is that we are so easily drawn to hate and kill each other? Why, God? #Quote by Richard Puz
Hate Crimes quotes by James Comey
#24. Hate crimes are different from other crimes. They strike at the heart of one's identity - they strike at our sense of self, our sense of belonging. The end result is loss - loss of trust, loss of dignity, and in the worst case, loss of life. #Quote by James Comey
Hate Crimes quotes by Barack Obama
#25. Number one, it is absolutely critical that we tone down the rhetoric when it comes to the immigration debate, because there has been an undertone that has been ugly. Oftentimes, it has been directed at the Hispanic community. We have seen hate crimes skyrocket in the wake of the immigration debate as it has been conducted in Washington, and that is unacceptable. #Quote by Barack Obama
Hate Crimes quotes by Sherman Alexie
#26. Aren't all crimes, by definition, hate crimes? I mean, people don't rob banks because they love tellers. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Hate Crimes quotes by Gayle Wray
#27. Human on human crimes should never be forgotten, or dismissed by time. We are all related here and are linked by spirit. #Quote by Gayle Wray
Hate Crimes quotes by Sinead O'Conner
#28. Remember what I told you. If they hated me, they will hate you. #Quote by Sinead O'Conner
Hate Crimes quotes by Florence King
#29. We worship education but hate learning. We worship success but hate the successful. We worship fame but hate the famous. #Quote by Florence King
Hate Crimes quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#30. Do you hate it? Or are you just afraid? #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Hate Crimes quotes by Fumiko Enchi
#31. You appear infinitely generous, but you are a woman of infinite passion, in hate as well as love. #Quote by Fumiko Enchi
Hate Crimes quotes by Adam Rapp
#32. I think auditioning can be very reductive and I just hate how actors work really hard and most of them aren't going to get the job, and I hate putting them through that. #Quote by Adam Rapp
Hate Crimes quotes by Margaret Deland
#33. There is a bond, it appears, between mother and child which endures as long as they do. It is independent of love; reason cannot weaken it; hate cannot destroy it. #Quote by Margaret Deland
Hate Crimes quotes by Giacomo Leopardi
#34. Men do not so much hate an evil-doer, or evil itself, as they hate the man who calls evil by its real name. #Quote by Giacomo Leopardi
Hate Crimes quotes by N.M. Sotzek
#35. I hate that guy." He paused. "He got a fox already," he muttered under his breath.

"Everyone hates him. And we both know that foxes hunt around garbage. #Quote by N.M. Sotzek
Hate Crimes quotes by Laurence Sterne
#36. I hate set dissertations,
and above all things in the world, 'tis one of the silliest things in one of them, to darken your hypothesis by placing a number of tall, opake words, one before another, in a right line, betwixt your own and your readers conception. #Quote by Laurence Sterne
Hate Crimes quotes by Banksy
#37. The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules but by people following the rules. It's people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages. #Quote by Banksy
Hate Crimes quotes by Jimmy Carter
#38. There has never been any evidence that the death penalty reduces capital crimes or that crimes increased when executions stopped. Tragic mistakes are prevalent ... It is clear that there are overwhelming ethical, financial, and religious reasons to abolish the death penalty. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Hate Crimes quotes by Cassandra Clare
#39. Roses are red, and they say love's not made to last,

But I know I'll never get enough of that sweet, sweet ass.

All that jelly in your jeans, all that junk in your trunk,

I just gotta have it - one look and I was sunk.

If you ever wonder why I had to make you mine,

It's 'cause no other lady has a tush so fine.

They say you're not a looker, but I don't mind.

What I'm looking at is the view from behind.

Never been romantic, don't know what love means,

But I know I dig the way you're wearing those jeans.

Hate to see you leave but love to watch you go.

Turn back, then leave again - baby do it slow.

I'm coming right after, gonna make a pass,

Can't get enough of that sweet, sweet ass. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Hate Crimes quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#40. Man and his deed are two distinct things. Whereas a good deed should call forth approbation and a wicked deed disapprobation, the doer of the deed, whether good or wicked, always deserves respect or pity as the case may be. "Hate the sin and not the sinner" is a precept which, though easy enough to understand, is rarely practiced, and that is why the poison of hatred spreads in the world. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Hate Crimes quotes by William Congreve
#41. She once used me with that insolence, that in revenge I took her to pieces; sifted her, and separated her failings; I studied 'em, and got 'em by rote. The catalogue was so large, that I was not without hopes, one day or other to hate her heartily. #Quote by William Congreve
Hate Crimes quotes by L.A. Casey
#42. God promised men that obedient women would be found on all corners of the Earth. I've been all over the Earth, and I call bullshit on that!" Alec snapped as he glared directly at me.

I snorted. "I hate to burst your bubble, but God also made the Earth round, he's got jokes."

Alec paused and glanced and me then to the sky. "Well played man, well played. #Quote by L.A. Casey
Hate Crimes quotes by Greg Erwin
#43. As long as you continue to tar social democracy with all the crimes of communism, I feel equally entitled to tar the free market with the crimes of slavery, segregation, colonialism and genocide; piss me off and I'll add fascism and the Nazis. #Quote by Greg Erwin
Hate Crimes quotes by Deyth Banger
#44. I can always win in Tic Tac toe for example one strategy can be used serveral times and one moment he will find that I'm using this strategy and in the other day he will forgot aobut this and I just repeat the same - But from this point of view it's kind a useless and taking time. I want to find new path ways, the same is with chess I can win always the same way but one moment it come the rule or the thought - hey I want this to return and I will give you to return. I hate this moment it's kind a noobish or kind a bot way! #Quote by Deyth Banger
Hate Crimes quotes by Gene Siskel
#45. Going to a movie is a two-hour experience; at $7.50 for a ticket, you are valuing your time at far less than the minimum wage. If you don't understand the film, don't leave. If you understand it all too well and hate it, get out of your seat and walk up the aisle. You will feel empowered. #Quote by Gene Siskel
Hate Crimes quotes by Thomas J. Harbin
#46. Many men find themselves unable to cope with even minor frustration. They get angry over trivial things, such as a broken pencil lead or an overcooked hamburger. Their anger erupts and gets out of control. They feel as though they are constantly under attack, that everyone is out to get them, and that nobody understands or cares about them. They may even get superstitious and believe that fate has it in for them, or that God has turned against them. This feeling of having no control leads to a state of continual frustration and anger.

This tendency to react with instant anger can be called rage. Rage is anger that never completely goes away. Unlike regular anger, it is not a response to a specific event; rather, it is a response set, or tendency. In other words, it is an automatic way of reacting to the world without much thought. When you react to more and more situations with anger, it becomes your habitual response. You may often find yourself furiously yelling or seething inside without even knowing what it was that made you so angry. Rage sees personal attack in every disagreement. Rage causes you to feel threatened when there is no threat. And rage causes you to viciously counter-attack even a minor threat.

Rage is like a wounded animal. It attacks anything that moves. And as with a wounded animal, the attacks do nothing to ease the pain. Rage depersonalizes individual people and events into a faceless, nameless "them". #Quote by Thomas J. Harbin
Hate Crimes quotes by Ernest Dowson
#47. They are not long, the weeping and the laughter. Love and desire and hate; I think they have no portion in us after We pass the gate. #Quote by Ernest Dowson
Hate Crimes quotes by Falling In Reverse
#48. I feel the hate,
Welling up inside,
And it's to late,
Nowhere to run and hide. #Quote by Falling In Reverse
Hate Crimes quotes by Lauryn Hill
#49. Since those who believe they need a hero/celebrity outnumber the actual heroes/celebrities, people feel safe and comfortably justified in numbers, committing egregious crimes in the name of the greater social ego. Ironically diminishing their own true hero-celebrity nature in the process. #Quote by Lauryn Hill
Hate Crimes quotes by Savitri Devi
#50. A 'civilization' that makes such a ridiculous fuss about alleged 'war crimes' - acts of violence against the actual or potential enemies of one's cause - and tolerates slaughterhouses and vivisection laboratories, and circuses and the fur industry (infliction of pain upon creatures that can never be for or against any cause), does not deserve to live. #Quote by Savitri Devi
Hate Crimes quotes by Claire North
#51. We've met before - a thousand times. I am the girl the world forgets. It started when I was sixteen years old. A slow declining, an isolation, one piece at a time. A father forgetting to drive me to school. A mother setting the table for three, not four. A teacher who forgets to chase my missing homework. A friend who looks straight through me and sees a stranger. No matter what I do, the words I say, the people I hurt, the crimes I commit - you will never remember who I am. That makes my life tricky. It also makes me dangerous... #Quote by Claire North
Hate Crimes quotes by Michelle Mone
#52. The thing is with the media, I have a love-hate relationship with [it]. [Journalists] are only doing their jobs and you can't get your own way all the time. #Quote by Michelle Mone
Hate Crimes quotes by Naomi Novik
#53. But she hadn't been able to take root. She'd remembered the wrong things, and forgotten too much. She'd remembered how to kill and how to hate, and she'd forgotten how to grow. #Quote by Naomi Novik
Hate Crimes quotes by Tim O'Brien
#54. Each of us, I suppose needs his illusions. Life after death. A maker of planets. A woman to love, a man to hate. Something sacred. But what a waste. #Quote by Tim O'Brien
Hate Crimes quotes by Sijdah Hussain
#55. Paranoia (n)
 A condition where a person always doubts others and themselves.
 A condition where all compliments seem too fake to be a reality.
 A condition where a person is unable to trust someone even after knowing them for years.
 A condition where a person thinks self-sabotage is healthy.
 A condition where a person just can't turn off the grinding noises in their brain.
 A condition where a person feels that someone is only nice to them because they need something in return.
 A condition where a person can no longer differentiate between delusions and reality.  A condition where a person's own mind is their biggest enemy.
 A condition where a person is ridden with irrational fears and 'yellow wallpaper' feels.
 A condition where a person feels that when people are not talking to them they are either talking about them or against them. Always. #Quote by Sijdah Hussain
Hate Crimes quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#56. You must not hate those who do wrong or harmful things; but with compassion, you must do what you can to stop them - for they are harming themselves, as well as those who suffer from their actions. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Hate Crimes quotes by Tom Odell
#57. Throughout my entire life, I constantly tried to fight normality. I hate it. I hate the idea of it. I hate routine. I hate anything that feels remotely regular or right. #Quote by Tom Odell
Hate Crimes quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#58. ...while hiding in plain sight in Belgrade, undercover as a New Age mountebank, Karadžic frequented a bar called Mad House - Luda kuca. Mad House offered weekly gusle-accompanied performances of Serbian epic poetry; wartime pictures of him and General Ratko Mladic, the Bosnian Serbs' military leader (now on trial in The Hague), proudly hung on the walls. A local newspaper claimed that, on at least one occasion, Karadžic performed an epic poem in which he himself featured as the main hero, undertaking feats of extermination. Consider the horrible postmodernism of the situation: an undercover war criminal narrating his own crimes in decasyllabic verse, erasing his personality so that he could assert it more forcefully and heroically. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Hate Crimes quotes by Madeline Sheehan
#59. You don't otta like someone to like fuckin' 'em. You can even hate their fuckin' guts and still like fuckin' 'em. Sometime's that's the best kinda fuckin'. Angry, crazy, fucked up, fuckin' ... #Quote by Madeline Sheehan
Hate Crimes quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#60. Betrayals that make your soul scream so loud you wonder why no one else hears it. In the end, we are all alone in that private hell. But life isn't about learning to forgive those who have hurt you or forgetting the past. It's about learning to forgive yourself for being human and making mistakes. Yes, people disappoint us all the time. But the harshest lessons come when we disappoint ourselves. When we put our trust and our hearts into the hands of the wrong person and they do us wrong. And while we may hate them for what they did, the one we hate most is ourself for allowing them into our private circle. How could I have been so stupid? How could I let them deceive me? #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Hate Crimes quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#61. If you really want to help the people, tell them the truth! They may not like it and they may even hate you; yet again, tell them the truth! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Hate Crimes quotes by Homer
#62. A generous friendship no cold medium knows,
Burns with one love, with one resentment glows;
One should our interests and our passions be,
My friend must hate the man that injures me. #Quote by Homer
