Let me ask you and anyone else- Is burning a cross on a black families lawn a "hate crime?" It has been successfuly prosecuted and people have gone to jail.

Is painting a Swastika, or writing Nazi slogans on a Temple a Hate Crime? It has been successfuly prosecuted and people have gone to jail.

The monetary value of the lawn damage, or the paint to cover the Nazi slogans, does not set the level of the crime. It is the painful emotional impact that the act caused that sets the level of the crime.

Both cross burning and swastika painting may be reasonably interpreted as threats, considering the historical baggage of those activities. There is nothing you can do to a wafer that compares to those activities, IMO.
