Evidently by inside the Beltway, the only known hate crime is voting republican, from Sean Sullivan and Scott Clement, Washington Post  (WaPo):

Haters gonna hate. But they plan to vote Republican.

Meet the haters.

We’re talking about the voters who’ve had it with all Washington politicians: President Obama, congressional Republicans and congressional Democrats. Despite their distaste for, well, everyone, when push comes to shove, these voters are lining up squarely behind GOP candidates for Congress.

So evidently, according to Misters Sullivan and Clement, not voting for the ‘rate is tantamount to hatred itself. Not that Barack Obama has told maybe more lies than any President in American history or that his signature law the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act neither protects patients nor make healthcare more affordable.
