COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act
This bill requires a designated officer or employee of the Department of Justice (DOJ) to facilitate the expedited review of hate crimes and reports of hate crimes.
DOJ must issue guidance for state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies on establishing online hate crime reporting processes, collecting data disaggregated by protected characteristic (e.g., race or national origin), and expanding education campaigns.
Additionally, DOJ and the Department of Health and Human Services must issue guidance aimed at raising awareness of hate crimes during the COVID-19 (i.e., coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic.
The bill establishes grants for states to create state-run hate crimes reporting hotlines. It also authorizes grants for states and local governments to implement the National Incident-Based Reporting System and to conduct law enforcement activities or crime reduction programs to prevent, address, or respond to hate crimes.
Finally, in the case of an individual convicted of a hate crime offense and placed on supervised release, the bill allows a court to order that the individual participate in educational classes or community service as a condition of supervised release.

When will the White House condemn this hate crime against Christian children and teachers

Some of the responses:
They have. It was another mass shooting. Everyone has condemned it.
Christians are not persecuted in America. But we do have a gun problem in America.
You, like Trump, are a white nationalist.
You are a deeply unserious fool.
Run josh, run!!
The WH has condemned the violence multiple times, against all of the violence, not just one specific group. That is the difference, Hawley. They condemn all violence. You only condemn it when it suits your purposes to do so. I remember how you behaved when Paul Pelosi was violently attacked. Where was your public apology for that hateful and sickening behavior? Where was your condemnation of your fellow MAGA politicians behavior?
This is why Biden is the sitting President, Hawley. Because he has at least respected America and Americans, be he a Democrat or not. You betray America, you discriminate and attack anyone not “MAGA”.
There are almost 300 million Americans out there who are NOT MAGA. We do not like your discrimination. If you want to spread hate, go to Russia or China where it is normal. Your fascist ways are not welcome in OUR government.
When will elected officials do something to actually prevent children dying in school?
Dems have condemned every school shooting. But condemning does nothing.
It’s the legislation that you oppose that at least gives us a chance.
They did that yesterday. Try to keep up. Why does it matter that the victims were at a Christian school? Have YOU condemned OTHER mass shootings based on the race/ethnicity of the victims….?
When will you stop using dog whistles?
Got news for you dude. Shooter was from highly religious Christian family.
Your mouth was silent on all other school shootings ..what Christians are above every other shooting? Hypocrite
It’s weird, because the “christians” are usually the ones doing the shooting.
Why do you assume it’s a hate crime? She was a former student. She had other ties to the school. We just don’t know at this point.
Christian on Christian violence? [….]
A. The murderer went to that school
B. Now your up in arms cause it’s a Christian school. Excuse me. A white Christian school.
C. No issue w El Paso, Buffalo, Club Q, Montery Park, et al
D. 2 yrs ago you voted No on a hate bill.
Did you sit around with your team all night workshopping how to get you the most attention out of this? “Should we use ‘massacre?’ That’s an emotionally charged word.”
“You know what plays well? Making it sound like a hate crime against Christians!”
You are pathetic.
A good share of children murdered have been Christians. Which should not determine how concerned you are. That makes no difference. A kid is a kid
Josh spewing hate while whining about a hate crime.
Every mass shooting is a hate crime. Is this one more important because it happened in a Christian school? How many Sandy Hook, Uvalde, Buffalo Topps, and the many thousands of other instances, victims were Christian? The loss of innocent lives, Christian or not needs to stop!!
There’s nothing rich white guys love more than pretending that they are the ones who are truly oppressed
Um. They have.
Interesting that Republicans say there is no such thing as a “hate crime” until it’s someone they hate committing the crime.
Stop trying to profit of this horrific tragedy. You look gross and Jesus is watching.
So it only a hate crime when it’s against Christians? Got it.
Tell us about the 1.3 million you received from the NRA
The fact that this is your focus, and not the proliferation of weapons that have resulted in over 100 mass shooting this year already, shows exactly where you get your talking points
When will you stop being ok with children being killed by guns
You are such an armchair Sunday Christian speaking out of both sides of your mouth! You are so pathetic! Where was this anger in Uvalde, Buffalo, all other mass shootings? Hypocrite
When will Josh Hawley condemn the gun violence everywhere and not just a Christian school? Where was he when mosques were being attacked? Other schools? That’s right. A meaningless “T&P” for the loved ones of kids murdered in school by violent people. Josh is only about Josh
How was it a hate crime when she was a student at the school?
Just stop it.
When will you DO SOMETHING besides ‘thoughts and prayers?’
Hawley, the NRA funded traitor and seditionist says what about guns killing innocent children and adults?
You’re a lowlife Sweetie
You are a disgusting disgraceful human being. Issue an apology to the parents of these CHILDREN. Quit twisting the narrative and FIX The Problem. You can stick your thoughts and prayers. #MAGAMoron
The White House condemns all gun violence. We’re all on that pedestal except you. Stop tweeting and go do your job.
