It's still OK to hate the homeless

Jerry Brown vetoed a California bill that would have included homelessness in the recognized categories of hate attacks.

Jerry says it's unnecessary. If it's unnecessary why not let the bill go through and presume nobody will invoke it? Or what is he afraid of?

Unnecessary my foot. Now that we're slowly acquiring bans on overt racism, sexism, homophobia, etc., the timeless need that egotists feel to shore up their own status by pushing down others has to focus somewhere. More and more that focus falls on homeless people.
