How fitting that on the day a supposed sighting of the KKK at Oberlin College was revealed to be nothing more than a woman wrapped in a blanket, the Southern Poverty Law Center released its latest scare tool, New Report: Radical antigovernment movement continues explosive growth:

The long inexorable descent of the Southern Poverty Law Center continues with the revelation that the shooter at the Family Research Council used the SPLC Hate Group list to target the FRC.

I have commented on the absurdity the SPLC has become many times before:

SPLC has been relatively quiet lately.  Relatively being a relative term, of course.

I haven’t seen Mark Potok on television much, but maybe I just wasn’t paying attention.

SPLC may have been relatively quiet, but it has been busy maligning the Tea Party movement  as usual, as this video shows, SPLC Director: Tea...

I was somewhat distracted the past couple of weeks getting College Insurrection up and running.

So I guess I missed the national dialogue and soul searching over anti-Christian rhetoric and the War on Christianity being conducted by the SPLC and various groups which cite the SPLC as the authority on what is hate...

The Southern Poverty Law Center is back in the news because of the shooting at the Family Research Council, a group the SPLC had designated a “hate group” along with the Klan and Neo-Nazis.

Based on the available evidence, it is clear the shooter was motivated by hatred of FRC’s positions on...

As long-time readers surely know, I have examined the pernicious methodology of the Southern Poverty Law Center in moving from fighting Klan and neo-Nazi groups to fighting for the Democratic Party agenda against conservatives and the Tea Party.

In seeking to justify its hefty salaries, budget and fundraising, SPLC made a very...

The SPLC has come out with its latest list of active right-wing “hate groups,” now claiming the list exceeds 1000 such groups. 

SPLC continues to list two Klan groups in my home state of Rhode Island, even though those claims have...

There are many cheap tricks used against bloggers.

Perhaps the most common is to attribute the views expressed in comments to the blogger.  The problem there is that the nature of a comment section is to give people other than the blogger the chance to express an opinion, so one has nothing to do...

The Southern Poverty Law Center was a focus of my post earlier this week regarding SPLC’s new “anti-gay” list and “hate group” list.

An important blog post (h/t Instapundit) by someone who describes himself as a “veteran gay and aids human rights activist” takes SPLC to task for its new list not...

I cannot begin to tell you how much it sickens me that the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group I supported many years ago because of its work against the Klan, has become a key player in labeling legitimate conservative political and religious groups as “hate groups.”

I have written many times before about the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization to which I contributed for many years back in the late 1970s and 1980s, when SPLC was fighting Klan groups.
In the past two decades, however, after the Klan ceased to be a significant force in the nation, the...

In early March I wrote how the Southern Poverty Law Center had exaggerated regarding the alleged presence of the Ku Klux Klan in Rhode Island as part of SPLC’s report on a “surge” of hate groups.

Specifically, I pointed out that SPLC claimed the Ku Klux Klan was active in North Providence....
