Swastikas and burning crosses are good examples, both of which have had legal protections in the past. US Nazis getting the permit to march thru Skokie IL where there were thousands of holocaust survivors, KKK marches and rallies, and so on. But I think the new laws are blurring the 'against people' aspects and expanding it to the point where it can be tacked on and trumped as criminal for being against property, being "biased" based on race. gender, sex. That just smacks of big brother correct think / correct ideas criteria that goes beyond any notions of old fashioned blasphemy the way I see it:
“criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, RELIGION, disability, ethnic origin or sexual orientation.”
Of course I have a buddy who argues for this as 'people are savage and what you can do to make them behave in a more civil manner is good. '
