    Why do you need a separate, harsher federal law when assault is already illegal everywhere and many states already have mask laws? Something something state's rights?

    This would cover crimes committed on federal land. Also the federal government has a particular interest in protecting the rights of citizens.

    So then I assume you are good with getting rid of all the Hate Crime laws as well since all they do is double up penalties?

    It is already the law in a few states. Louisiana for one.

    My personal thoughts, if you are wearing a mask, you obviously don't want people to know who you are. Why don't you want people to know who you are? Are you about to do something illegal? Are you doing something morally or ethically wrong? Or is it halloween?

    As long as just wearing a mask by itself isn't illegal, I don't have any issue with this law. It basically boils down to "Don't break the law and especially don't try to conceal yourself while breaking it."

    BTW, it makes it illegal to wear the full KKK hoods too. It ain't just ANTIFA.

    Hate crime laws are inherently racist and bigoted.

    Um. How is that exactly?

    You know- labeling all efforts to account for and combat prejudice as bigoted only serves to protect actual bigotry and to deny Justice to its victims.

    Because all people are created equal and a crime is a crime is a crime is a crime.

    Because in and of itself it is using race to determine if one crime is more severe than another?

    Then I suppose all crimes should have identical sentencing gudelines?
