The Southern Poverty Law Center issued a misleading and politicized report on hate groups for the purpose of smearing those who oppose Democratic Party plans to expand government.
This has become an all too common SPLC tactic, and is a disgrace because there was a time when SPLC actually went after hate groups rather than simply putting the label “hate group” on law-abiding political groups which happen to oppose SPLC’s fundraising base.
By conflating political opponents with almost extinct groups like the Ku Klux Klan, SPLC creates powerful, but distorted, imagery.
SPLC’s report caused the The Guardian in Britain to run the image at right on its homepage to highlight the SPLC’s report.
Your mission to smear all opponents of the Obama agenda as the equivalent of Klansmen is on the way to being accomplished.
