A crime is a physical act that violates the property or person of
another by force or fraud.  "Hate crime" is an abstract social
construct, where the /motives/ for crimes are framed as legally
actionable violence in and of themselves.  Criminalization of motives,
enhanced sentencing guidelines based on the "hate crime" concept, etc.
does constitute criminalization of opinion and prosecution of
thoughtcrime. Criminalization of /speech/ our knee-jerk Liberals find
intolerable has not yet been attained - but not for lack of effort by
advocacy organizations funded by them for that purpose.

As comments from racist trash in this thread indicate, the "hate
crime" concept fuels the racist trash narrative by giving them a
/genuine/ case of systemic persecution against "their kind" to raise
hell about.  At least in the United States, Liberals care far more
about proving their own moral superiority than in getting the results
they /claim/ to be working for, so they are more than happy to keep
pouring fuel on this fire.
