Outrage as Oklahoma Republican’s bill labels Hispanic people ‘terrorists’

A n Oklahoma lawmaker is facing backlash for proposing a discriminatory bill that deems people of Hispanic descent as “terrorists”.

Republican state representative JJ Humphrey introduced the bill,   HB 3133 , which seeks to combat problems in the state, such as drug and human trafficking, and lay out punishments to those who have committed these “acts of terrorism”

The punishment for such a crime would be forfeiting all assets, including any and all property, vehicles, and money.

In addition to “a member of a criminal street gang” and someone who “has been convicted of a gang-related offense,” the bill defines a terrorist as “any person who is of Hispanic descent living within the state of Oklahoma”.

The move was met with fierce criticism.

State senator Michael Brooks, who serves as the senate’s minority caucus vice-chair and founded the Oklahoma Latino legislative caucus, said the move by Humphrey was unsurprising.

“To have the law treat people differently based on their race or ethnicity only creates greater divides,” Brooks said. “The bill is fatally flawed, and I don’t know if there’s much of a way to be able to change it.


Some Oklahomans voiced their outrage on social media.

One X user   wrote : “Tell us you’re racist without telling us you’re racist … ”

Humphrey apologized but then doubled down.

He said: “I apologize for using the word Hispanic, but I was not wrong. Again, these are Hispanic. Reality is they are Hispanic. There’s nothing to be ashamed with.”

Humphrey said he will go back to the bill and amend the language from “Hispanic” to “undocumented here illegally, or something like that”.

If passed in the Republican-controlled legislature, the bill would become law and take effect on 1 November.

Humphrey did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This and Paul Gosar's fundraising letter yesterday whipping up his constituents about not enough white people in the military is proof positive that only democrats are racists. /s

Not really. They know it exists. Hell, some of them exhibit racism here nearly every day. To have it actually shoved in their face...well....they'll just knock it out of the way and pretend it never happened

No one is claiming that. No more racism now than there was in the past, probably a lot less.

And a lot of the current hysteria about White supremacy is made up bullshit also.

However, the author of the bill is stupid , racist, idiot who could have left that one word out of it, although some would have felt what remained was racist also.

Or probaably a lot more, or maybe the same, who knows.

Really! wow thanks for confirming that bullshit. I hate hysteria, it's almost like the right clutching their pearls.

Whoa, you're of a roll, gregg call'em like you see's um. A damn racist Okie doesn't get any better than that. He did slack off a bit when he called them Hispanic he could have used other descriptions that would have made the comment even worse it that's possible, wetback for example. 

But he is still the perfect representative of the party on the right, keep right on talking there JJ, make the world notice your racist ass.

 Oklahoma Republican’s Bill Labels Hispanic People ‘Terrorists’

Does that also apply to their Texas neighbours?

Like, for example,, Ted Cruz?

Cruz's father, Rafael, was born and raised in Cuba, the son of a   Canary Islander   who immigrated to   Cuba   as a child. [14]
