The Southern Poverty Law Center's mission is in their own words is to fight hatred and bigotry and seek justice.A laughable self-glorification of an organization dedicated to promoting tolerance through heavy handed intolerance. The only poverty that can be truly found in the Montgomery, AL based organization is in the poor people they fleece to maintain their high standard of living. The SPLC, for all intents and purposes is a race baiting scam for profit.
Americans of different races beginning to work together means less financial gain for these professional instigators and agitators. The likes of Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Morris Dees and his SPLC liberal brown shirts are reliant on fear mongering for their paychecks. They are not below creating boogeymen or fueling real flames in order to keep the checks flowing.
The self-proclaimed champions of tolerance in Alabama do not practice the tolerance they preach. The gullible who buy into their lies, propaganda, and efforts to demonize free thought fill their coffers with cash. The SPLC does nothing but fatten the wallets of those like Morris Dees and Mark Potok. It has turned out to be quite a lucrative scam.
Robert Spencer of the group Jihad Watch reported on the Alabama based mud slingers efforts to punish those who dare exercise their freedom of speech or freedom of thought in our great nation. They are demanding services like Amazon and PayPal blacklist those who don't think in lock step with the SPLC's extreme leftist world view. They include 91 organizations on their hit list.
The SPLC has become the mafia style strong arm of the left. They in true thug fashion attempt to intimidate all opposition into silence with false accusations of racism or extremism. They go to shameful lengths to crush any who dare counter their beliefs. They have become a stain on the Alabama State Motto. We Dare Defend Our Rights n Alabama not silence them like the SPLC. They utilize the millions they bilk out of the gullible across the nation to accomplish this. Like P.T. Barnum stated there is a sucker born every minute.
They have found allies in liberal Senators Ed Markey (D-Mass) and Representative Hakeem Jefferies (D-NY), who have introduced the Hate Crimes Reporting Act of 2014. This legislation is a weapon which will be used to allow the (in)Justice Department (of Fast and Furious fame) to scour the internet, television, radio, etc.....for an open ended definition of racism. A virtual thought police to be used by President Obama to squelch the First Amendment.
Their political correctness is far from true tolerance. It is about marching lock step in thought, word, and deed. They seek a fascist utopia that can only exist in the absence of individual thought and freedom. They want laws to force their twisted ideas of tolerance on everyone.
One byte of good news arrived when the Federal Bureau of Investigation chose to terminate the SPLC as a resource on its hate crimes web page. For far too long they were listed as a resource and referred to as a partner with the FBI in public outreach.
Fourteen Christian and conservative leaders signed onto a letter to the Obama Justice Department challenging the SPLC's inclusion as being "completely unacceptable". It was a slap in the face of common sense to have purveyors of hate included as a resource on a hate crimes page.
Their intolerance of ideas and beliefs not aligning to their own led to the 2012 shooting at the Family Research Council by Floyd Lee Curtis. Curtis chose the FRC from the SPLC hate list and used a map of the offices found on the site to plan the shooting spree.
SPLC head honcho Morris Dees was aptly called "the King of the hate crimes business" by liberal Alexander Coburn (Counterpunch). Dees makes a lucrative living by causing the fearful to donate. He would lie to God himself in order to vilify the innocent for profit ($150 million in assets and raises $40 million a year by direct mail).
The FBI should be applauded for removing this stain from their record. Real discrimination needs to be addressed but the SPLC is a part of the problem not the solution. It's past time to put the SPLC and it's money hungry leaders out to pasture.
