Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC)
The radical left
"Southern Poverty Law Center" (SPLC)
labels opponents of Islamic jihad and Islamic sharia
and "hate groups".
Their labels are meaningless.
They just mean "people whose politics we don't like".

Unfortunately for him, it later emerged that the bombings were carried out by Muslim jihadist immigrant refugees.

of Jihad Watch,
who they label as an "extremist".
- Here is their big chance to show he is an extremist.
They can quote him saying extremist things, like "Muslims are subhuman", "Deport all Muslims",
and so on. Right?
- So, look at their 3 quotes.
None of their 3 quotes are extremist at all.
A reasonable man could agree or disagree with them, but they are not extremist.
They all offer points for rational debate.
(In fact, I think I broadly agree with all 3 quotes.)
- This was the SPLC's big chance, and this is all they have got?
- The SPLC strips the word "extremist" of all meaning by using it to mean "person I disagree with".
An anti-Christian terrorist is a fan of the SPLC.
- Family Research Council shooting, Aug 2012:
Family Research Council (FRC)
of Washington DC
as a "hate group".
A gay terrorist
carries out a shooting at the Family Research Council in Aug 2012.
He identified them as a target using the SPLC website.
Family Research Council is angry with SPLC:
"Let me be clear that Floyd Corkins was responsible for firing the shot yesterday. But Corkins was given a license to shoot an unarmed man by organizations like the Southern Poverty Law Center that have been reckless in labeling organizations hate groups because they disagree with them on public policy."
Should the SPLC be shut down since its rhetoric leads to violence?
- (No, it shouldn't, if you're asking.
But it's nice to see these offensive lefties get a taste of their own medicine.)
- Other Christians are angry with the SPLC:
- Live Prayer

Keller is filing a
defamation lawsuit against the SPLC.
"The sad shooting the other day at the Family Research Council ...
was clearly fueled by the left wing group, the Southern Poverty Law Center."

Statement of Offense
Despite the 2012 shooting,
the SPLC still has the FRC on its target map!
Note the image of neo-Nazis with a swastika flag.
The FRC is still on the SPLC "hate map" as at Feb 2013
- still linked to neo-Nazi groups and the like.
despite the fact that we know the 2012 shooter used this page for targets.
Jim Treacher, 7 Feb 2013, contrasts the media treatment of this map,
which the shooter admits he used,
Sarah Palin map blamed for Tucson,
which of course the shooter there
Another contrast is that Palin took her map down, despite it being irrelevant,
while the SPLC leaves their map up, despite it having been used for a shooting.
The killer of Muslims is a fan of the SPLC.
In Feb 2015, Craig Hicks was charged with
killing 3 Muslims at Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
Incredibly, the shooter was a fan of the SPLC.
I pointed out the irony
that the killer of Muslims was a fan of the SPLC,
who themselves so often smear counter-jihadists as "hate groups"
based on flimsy evidence.
Craig Hicks' Facebook
shows he is a fan of the SPLC.
- Atheist terror:
- Left-wing terror:
The narrative got more confusing in Craig Hicks'
include left-wing pages
The Huffington Post,
"Mitt Romney Sucks",
"Organization for Educating Misinformed Tea Party Patriots"
and, incredibly, the SPLC.
- Not terror at all:
- Hicks' Facebook pages do not indicate any unusual hostility to Muslims.
On the contrary, he defended religious freedom for Muslims.
- Michael Nugent
goes through the pages and says:
"I have found nothing written on his Facebook page to justify the public speculation by others that he murdered his neighbours because he is an atheist and they were Muslims.
Indeed, on his Facebook page, he repeatedly promotes freedom of religion explicitly for Muslims,
including supporting their right to build a controversial Mosque near the site of ground zero in New York.
he also writes that he disagrees with the idea of banning religion:
"Not that I care for religion, as I most definitely do not, but banning it would be taking away a persons rights and I oppose that.""
The police say he may have killed the three Muslims because of
"an ongoing neighbor dispute over parking",
not because of religion or politics.
- Blaming anyone and everyone:
Anti-GOP sentiment seems to correlate with terror
In fact, contrary to the claims above,
sentiment seems to correlate with terror.
