Above is a screen print from a video in a story at The Gateway Pundit. This video was edited out of the film Hating Breitbart, for reasons of length and saliency; but it’s being released now in response to a continuing false attack on the late Andrew Breitbart and James O’Keefe. The Southern Poverty Law Center published an article accusing Breitbart and O’Keefe of “hobnobbing with white nationalists.”
The Gateway Pundit explained that this attack is without merit, in a previous story:
All of this is ancient history though, so why did the SPLC attack a dead man out of the clear blue? It’s because they’re carrying water for progressive race baiters and known rapists (of innocent people’s reputations) Max Blumenthal and obscure blogger Daryle Jenkins. …
There’s a scene in the film where Breitbart very publicly calls Max Blumenthal out for his attempted rape of O’Keefe’s and Breitbart’s reputations. The humiliation was so complete that Blumenthal was forced to issue a correction that would’ve more honestly been called a retraction …
So basically because James O’Keefe helped someone set up a table at a debate on race issues, the Southern Poverty Law Center is insinuating O’Keefe is a racist organizer. …
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) purports to identify and track hate organizations (although oddly enough they don’t list most Islamist groups as haters). The SPLC has influence in our government far beyond what they deserve:
Judicial Watch obtained Defense Department training materials … that described conservative and civil liberties organizations as “hate groups.”
The training materials used by the Air Force were created to help students “recognize extremists ideologies.” The materials identified conservative values, such as individual liberties and states’ rights, as recruiting rhetoric used by “extremists.” …
The documents were published by the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute in January 2013. They cited the leftwing Southern Poverty Law Center repeatedly as a source to use when identifying hate groups.
The SPLC also labeled a group of black pastors as a “hate group” because they oppose gay activists:
A coalition of African-American pastors and pro-family Christian and Jewish leaders held a press conference outside the headquarters of the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Alabama, to protest the SPLC’s smearing of pro-family groups that oppose homosexual activism as “hate groups.”
The SPLC has been co-opted by a Leftist, pro-homosexual, anti-Christian agenda. If you don’t agree with the SPLC leftist litmus test, then you are a de facto “hate group.” With its new definition of what constitutes a hate group, the SPLC has become a fund-raising machine. It’s no wonder that the organization is flush with cash. At the end of fiscal year 2010 SPLC’s endowment stood at $216.2 million. Ultimately, the tactic is to strike fear in middle-America so the checks keep rolling in.
Similarly false accusations by the SPLC led directly to a hateful terroristic attack on yet another Christian group:
Family Research Council (FRC) officials released video of federal investigators questioning convicted domestic terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins II, who explained that he attacked the group’s headquarters because the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) identified them as a “hate group” due to their traditional marriage views.
“Southern Poverty Law lists anti-gay groups,” Corkins tells interrogators in the video, which FRC obtained from the FBI. “I found them online, did a little research, went to the website, stuff like that.”
The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard reported that Corkins, who pleaded guilty to terrorism charges, said in court that he hoped to “kill as many as possible and smear the Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in victims’ faces, and kill the guard.” As Bedard explained, “the shooting occurred after an executive with Chick-Fil-A announced his support for traditional marriage, angering same-sex marriage proponents.”
While the SPLC pretends to be concerned with monitoring hate groups and educating people about hate groups, some believe otherwise, because their “director of intelligence” [sic] says:
Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring hate crimes and so on … I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, to completely destroy them.
Completely destroying groups with whom one disagrees politically or on a religious basis, after falsely labeling them “hate groups”? That certainly sounds un-American and rather hateful. Bradlee Dean explains:
This is all coming from an organization that uses a façade of legitimacy (a law firm that advocates un-law). Of course, it does this with misuse of language and subtly changing definitions of widely understood and accepted terms (reversing definitions). As you know, the socialist-communist agenda has always had a problem with how to defend and promote an indefensible agenda, dedicating themselves by covertly undermining and ultimately destroying American society as to implementing socialism/communism.
Who are the true haters?
Which groups pose a real existential threat to our Republic?
