Hate Crimes Bill

From Reason Magazine article:

"'Hate crimes have no place in America,' House Speaker Nancy Pelosi boldly declared last week, 'no place in a nation where we pledge every morning "with liberty and justice for all."' Pelosi was urging her colleagues to approve a bill aimed at violence motivated by hostility toward members of certain designated groups.

"According to Pelosi, then, the 'justice for all' mentioned in the Pledge of Allegiance means equal opportunity to be a crime victim. It certainly does not mean equality before the law, which the hate crime bill sacrifices by treating perpetrators of the same crime differently because they hold different beliefs."
Is it just me, or is there a kind of proportion that looks something like this:
