The ultra-liberal Southern Poverty Law Center labeled as a hate group...

by me.  After all, what is closer to genuine hate?  Holding an opinion about homosexuality that fails to conform to the dogmas of modern progressivism?  Or considering anyone who advances ideals about homosexuality with which you happen to disagree a hate group?  The tiresome, yet effective, tendency of the Left to declare evil anyone who fails to conform to liberal groupthink is becoming troubling at best.  Simply because many on the Left desire to put teeth in their proclamation of moral superiority, one has to oppose their efforts almost on the principle of freedom of conscience and speech.  Even if you agree with their stances on such issues as homosexuality, anyone with a shred of consistency must be compelled to stand up and say enough, people can actually be free to reject liberalism and not have the label 'hate group' hung around their necks.  After all, this is not yet the United Soviets of America.


  1. "...people can actually be free to reject liberalism and not have the label 'hate group' hung around their necks."

    Amen to that. There is no legal definition of "hate group," which is why even the FBI does not track "hate groups."

    The SPLC uses the deliberately meaningless term "hate group" to attack its perceived enemies without accusing them of any actual crimes.

    "Hate group" means anything the SPLC says it does, and since their fund raising relies directly on a perceived ever-increasing threat, it's little wonder the number goes up every year.

    The SPLC is a private fund raising group with nearly $190 MILLION dollars in cash on hand.

    They have no mandate, no authority, legal or moral, to designate anyone as anything. The SPLC has no more right to designate "hate groups" than does the SPCA.

    The most ironic (read: "hypocritical") thing about the Southern Poverty Law Center is that NOT ONE of its top ten, highest paid executives is a minority.

    In fact, according to the SPLC's hometown newspaper, the Montgomery Advertiser, despite being located LITERALLY in the back yard of Dr. Martin Luther King's home church, the SPLC has NEVER hired a person of color to a highly paid position of power.

    Some "experts"

  2. Thanks for that. I didn't mention that they really have no mandate to do it. That is true. By the way, couldn't get the links to work.

  3. Thanks, Dave,

    Sorry about the links, that's rather odd.

    Here they are again, but you might have to copy and paste:
