From the American Policy Center:
The Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC), website identifies itself as “the premiere U.S. non-profit organization monitoring the activities of domestic hate groups and other extremists”. In true Orwellian fashion and through the employment of double speak, the SPLC spews the hatred it claims to abhor at any group or individual that dares advocate positions considered right of center.
In their effort to promote peace, harmony and understanding, the SPLC saw to it that Dr. Ben Carson did a brief stint on its Hate Watch list. The soft-spoken presidential candidate and pediatric neurosurgeon, known for his philanthropy and faith, earned this distinction through his personal endorsement of traditional marriage.
More recently, the SPLC screed, “Women Against Islam-The Dirty Dozen”, identified 12 anti-sharia conservatives with a biography, picture and area of residence. Despite professing a moral code of tolerance, the SPLC has offered up nothing less than a hit list, enabling jihadists in training to prove their cred by going after concerned American citizens.
None of this would be so bad if the SPLC was just another garden-variety, left wing propaganda machine. But they’re not. This well moneyed and connected group has deep ties with the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI. Both use the group as a resource for information on domestic extremists and other hate groups. They assist in the training of law enforcement officers and the authorship of policy papers and studies. Their position as trusted “authority” allows them an opportunity to shape policy within our law enforcement agencies. A frightening thought for small government advocates who promote the Constitution, defend the Second Amendment, advance pro-life policies or stockpile food for a rainy day. All who do such things have been labeled as potential domestic terrorists by the SPLC.
Tom DeWeese, founder and president of the American Policy Center and author of the DeWeese Report has been identified in a SPLC Intelligence Report as one of the rising stars of the “radical right”. Mr. DeWeese came under scrutiny for his life long promotion of American sovereignty, personal property rights, and limited, lawful government.
Mr. DeWeese is calling on members of Congress to investigate the relationship between the SPLC and agencies of our government. I ask that my Congressman, Dr. Harris, lead the way.
