Sure.

A murder is a murder. A person is dead.

A lynching is something else. A person is dead, and a message has been sent.
Right, you want harsher punishment for thought crime.
First, I don't think I ever said that I support hate crimes legislation (in fact, however, I do), so I'm not sure why you assumed that I had to support the idea in order to be able to explain it.

Second, no, what I "want" (or, rather, what I understand to be the point of hate crime legislation) is for their to be a recognition of and a penalty for the fact that, implicit in every lynching, is a death threat aimed at every member of the targeted group.

Should it be illegal to make death threats?
