California Looking to Ban Conservatives, Whites, and Christians from Becoming Cops

A proposed California law is taking criticism for being a way to ban whites and Christians from being hired as police officers.

Opponents of the proposed bill which bans police officers who’ve engaged in “public expressions of hate” say the law would only target cops who have traditional, conservative, and Christian views, KCRA-TV reported.

The California Law Enforcement Accountability Reform, or CLEAR Act — AB 655 — would require cities to perform background checks on “whether a candidate for specified peace officer positions has engaged in membership in a hate group, participation in hate group activities, or public expressions of hate, as those terms are defined. The bill would provide that certain findings would disqualify a person from employment.”

Those that supposedly violate this new hate law would be either fired if already hired or refused employment if an applicant.

The bill’s author, Assembly member Ash Kalra, excused her wrongthink bill, saying, “you have a constitutional right to have racist and bigoted views. You don’t have a constitutional right to be a police officer.”

According to Kalra, a “hate group” is “an organization that, based upon its official statements or principles, the statements of its leaders, or its activities, supports, advocates for, or practices the denial of constitutional rights of, the genocide of, or violence towards, any group of persons based upon race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.”

The bill also defines “public expression of hate” as “any explicit expression, either on duty or off duty and while identifying oneself as, or reasonably identifiable by others as, a peace officer, in a public forum, on social media including in a private discussion forum, in writing, or in speech, as advocating or supporting the denial of constitutional rights of, the genocide of, or violence towards, any group of persons based upon race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.”

“Public expression of hate” is also defined as “the public display of any tattoo, uniform, insignia, flag, or logo that indicates support for the denial of constitutional rights of, the genocide of, or violence towards, any group of persons based upon race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, or disability.”

The language of this bill would prohibit the hiring of any person who expresses traditional Christian or conservative views.

Folks don’t doubt that Democrats want to make being an American a crime.
